Lime Kiln Forest is definitely one of my absolute favourites when it comes to the NCC Greenbelt trails. But I have found that it can be very buggy most times of the year. But that is not the case in the late Fall guys, which happens to be the best time to hit it up in my opinion!! I was oh so very happy Tori + Jarred selected this spot for their engagement session as I loved getting to walk through this awesome place with an even more awesome couple, especially since these two absolutely nailed their engagement photos!!Continue reading “Ottawa Lime Kiln Forest Engagement Session: Tori + Jarred”
I often get asked by clients when we are planning their winter engagement session, how much snow is too much? And the answer is that there isn’t a limit. Jolani + Josh’s session is a great example as Mother Nature can be even weirder than usual when it comes to winter forecasts.
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.
I have a particular fondness for the NCC Greenbelt trails (I specifically love the ones that surround the Stony Swamp area). Not only are they beautiful, but also because they remind me of several trails and forest areas that I frequented when I was growing up back home.
I found myself on these trails so often that for a long time, I had a bag of bird seed in my car at all times, and now my camera bag is often home to a small pack of it (so much so that there is almost always a few loose seeds at the bottom of my bag).
Sadly, I don’t find myself out on the trails as often as I used to, but since that time is taken up by clients and their sessions, I am definitely not complaining. But I do love when my work gets to overlap with my time spent on the greenbelt trails, so when Christine + John mentioned that they were interested in the Jack Pine Trail for their session, I was very happy.
Whenever a couple interested in an engagement session books their wedding day with us, we put a little note in their file and on our calendar for the season and/or month they are interested in for their engagement shoot. That way, as things get closer we can reach out and set an actual date for the session and make sure we don’t miss the prime of the season. So right away I knew Christine + John wanted a Fall engagement session among all the beautiful foliage that we know and love.
