Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Family Session: Henry

Oh my goodness, how could I have possibly forgotten to post this wonderful session with Henry and is awesome parents, Emma + Scott?! I knew I had issued it to them before hitting publish on this post as I was just so swamped with editing that I didn’t have time to wrap up blogging at the time (and of course didn’t want them to have to wait while I got my writing inspiration), but I didn’t realize just how long it had been since I actually finished this up. Well, long story short, I am (finally) sharing this wonderful lifestyle session and that is what really matters … right?!

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 Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Maternity Session: The Radulovics

Where do I even start with this one?! Seriously I don’t know. Samantha + Damjan are honest-to-goodness two of the nicest, most thoughtful people Dave + I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their engagement session took my breath away and their wedding day was one of the most touching and heart-warming celebrations we have gotten to be a part of. So when Damjan reached out to me about their maternity session, I was so ridiculously excited – and even more so because it was all a complete surprise for Sam!!

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 do love getting catch up with our couples and families each year, especially when they are filled with people like Marie-France + Jonathan, who are just about the most thoughtful people out there. And their little girl Mackenzie just gets cuter and cuter every time I see her!!⁠
