Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Family Session: The Tolsmas

Ottawa-Ornamental-Gardens-Lifestyle-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyJonathan once joked that I should get a punch card like they have at coffee shops for clients, like themselves, who come back year after year for their photo sessions.

I had missed my clients so much and I don’t think I missed any more than the wee little babies!!
