Beach & Forest Lifestyle Family Session: The McNally’s

Family sessions with little ones can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking for parents. Worrying about whether or not their tiny humans are going to cooperate and have fun during the session, or just have a tantrum. And then if the latter does happen, will they just be done for the entire session, or will they be consolable and come back around? It’s definitely stressful and can make any parent a little anxious. Luckily though, I’m pretty darn good with kids and babies and toddlers tend to like me (fingers crossed that I am not jinxing myself for my upcoming toddler-filled sessions). And that means I am normally able to comfort little ones and make sure they have a great time during their session. And hey, when all else fails, there is always good old fashion bribery (and there’s nothing wrong with that)!

So with all of that said, it didn’t surprise me when little Owen turned out to not be a really big fan of being told what to do during the McNally’s family session.

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Jonathan

Little Baby Jonathan got a bunch of brand new outfits just for his session. In fact, I was finishing up multiple items late into the evening before his shoot. But the late night and extra sewing was oh so very worth it as this teeny dude was so darn cute and such a trooper during his session!

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 Studio Newborn Session: Maggie

The most recent lockdown was extra hard for me (as I am sure it was for most people). I hated being closed again and for so long, and I really hated watching online as so many SBFamilies had their new babies and weren’t able to bring them in for their session.

Luckily though, I have become pretty good at working with much ‘older’ babies over the last year and a half, so when Baby Maggie was finally able to come in for her newborn photos, we were still able to get some truly adorable images!

Ottawa Lifestyle Puppy Session: Avery + Arlo

In case you are new around here, I am 100% a dog person. I smile anytime I see a puppy walking down the road and pretty much always say hello to them before the human walking the dog, and of course I smile from ear to ear when I see a dog with their head out the car window. Our own pup, Kaylee, brings so much light and joy to our lives and is the real star of our social media feeds.

So when Miranda + Jason wanted to use their session for some updated family photos of them and their pups, I was pretty darn stoked!
