Lifestyle Family Session: The Lacasses

Ottawa Fall & Winter Extended Family Session

Ottawa-Extended-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyOttawa had a really weird Fall season this year. The leaves took their time arriving and when they did they really didn’t last long. Or rather, they didn’t last long on their own as they were quickly joined by a decent layer of snow everywhere. I forget who I heard this phrase from, but it was like having two seasons in one. It worked out really well for the look of photos, but it definitely made Fall photos a fair bit colder than they have been in past years. Lucky for me I had some pretty fantastic families to work with these guys!

Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn + Family Session: Evalyn + Elizabeth

Ottawa-Lifestyle-Newborn-and-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyWhen I first sat down to write this blog post, I thought I might have a hard time figuring out what to write about. I have worked with this amazing family so many times now, I thought I must have said all there is to say! But luckily, they are so awesome that each and every time I get to hang out with them I learn a bit more about them. And better than that, I get to see their girls’ personalities develop and shine and it really is so truly awesome to witness!

But really, anytime day with this ridiculously cute little girl is obviously going to be a great one!

Ottawa Family Session: Nicole, Richard, Abby + Cara

Ottawa-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI grew up with an older brother who, if I’m being honest, I wasn’t super close to until we became adults (mostly just because we didn’t have a lot in common growing up). And now that I think about it, most of my current friends also consist of two kid families with one boy and one girl. And the few that lie outside that trend tend to be boy-boy combos (or they are 1 of 3 kids, but again more boys than girls). All this to say that my experience with sisters has been limited over the years (other than sisters-in-law of course, wherein I am super lucky and have pretty awesome ones!).
