Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn Session: Amelia

I love lifestyle newborn sessions, but I love them even more when there is a big sister or brother involved because they are just so wonderful! And Big Sister Isabelle was definitely no exception. She was so excited to be a part of the session and was so good for her parts too! But of course, the star of the day was still Little Baby Amelia. And how could she not be, what with those big doe-eyes and sweet little face, she was such a little darling!!

2020 Favourites: Families + Newborns

I started shooting family session about a year after I started weddings, and honestly, I have loved every minute of it! Not only do I get to work with some of the best families and most hilarious kiddos, but I get to see our couples and families as they start and grow their families over the years! It really is such a treat to be able to watch these tiny babes grow into super fun kids full of spunk and personality! So with that all said, I think it is only fitting to wrap-up the 2020 year that was filled with so many wonderful family sessions!

Ottawa Lifestyle Family Photography Session: The Lillico-Thompsons

I don’t know about you, but I don’t actually work very well in a completely silent area. I need something going to be able to be my most productive. When I worked in an office, that was pretty much always music, but now that my boss is super duper cool, I get to watch TV (get it, my boss is cool because I am my boss — haha, I am so funny! 😉 ). That being said, whenever I need to write anything, I just can’t do it if there are voices coming at me, meaning TV is out and actually most music is too as the lyrics distract me from writing. So, long story short, I am sitting here writing about this truly amazing sessions I had with Kristina, Joel and their adorable little boy Zach while listening to some great gaming soundtracks!

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Family Session: The Nuttalls

I’m going to be completely honest here, I was so freaking nervous leading up to this family session. Not because I thought they would do poorly, or because I couldn’t think of interactions for them to do during their session. No, I was nervous because I know this family and I know just how shy and quiet Little Kane can be, and I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to get a single smile out of him during the shoot. But I am oh so very happy to report that the entire family was full of smiles and giggles all session long!!

Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn + Family Photography: The Kealeys

Technically we had already postponed this session by the time I headed out of the house towards Mariah + Ben for their lifestyle newborn and family shoot. The weather was supposed to be quite bad complete with not only rain, but thunderstorms, and because of that we had decided to move the session to the following week. But about 2 hours before I was supposed to leave, the sky was still absolutely lovely and the forecast changed entirely – well, it changed for the 1-2 hours the actual shooting would take place and that was good enough for everyone involved! And I am so very happy we went ahead with the session, not only was the weather that afternoon beautiful, the weather next weekend was not.
