Ottawa Cake Smash Session: Layla

Ottawa-Cake-Smash-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyThis family really is one of our absolute favourites and I absolutely love getting to catch up with them so often.

Gatineau Lifestyle Newborn Session: Callie

Picking out a name for your child seems so intimidating to me. I mean, this is what you kid will be called for the rest of their lives (assuming they don’t absolutely hate it and end up changing it when they are legally able to). The name they will hear, sign and say again and again as they go through their daily routines. It is even the name others kids with manipulate to be able to make fun of them (and you can never think of all the things other kids may come up with to try to protect your child). So the idea of picking out a good one really does seem just so incredibly daunting to me.

Ottawa-Lifestyle-Newborn-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyNewborn babies are so incredibly precious. And their time in that itty-bitty newborn stage is pretty short as it isn’t long before they are growing like a weed. So to be able to capture this time and all of those tiny baby details for a new family is so special. And as an added bonus, getting to spend some time with amazing parents like Sabrina + Charles just makes lifestyle newborn sessions even sweeter.

There are some really special moments in a young couple’s life and I am so incredibly lucky as a wedding and portrait photographer to be able to capture so many of them! From proposal to engagement and of course their wedding day, we get to be a part of so many important and memorable occasions. But I don’t know if there is anything that could be more precious than when that couple starts growing their family.
