Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Frederick

Ottawa-Studio-Newborn-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyIt can be a little hard to predict how photos with both a 2.5 year old and newborn baby are going to go. Sometimes big brother is super into it, and other times the mix of the new baby and new environment can make them feel a little camera shy. But no worries about that here because both Elliott + Baby Frederick did an absolutely amazing job!! So much so that their photos together fill my heart with so much joy!

Ottawa Arboretum Lifestyle Family Session: The Hatches

Ottawa-Arboretum-Lifestyle-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI sometimes marvel at just how small the world really is, or at least just how small Ottawa and the surrounding area is. I grew up in a small town and went to school in an even smaller area. So when I moved to Ottawa for school I had it in my head that I would likely never see people from my hometown. Thinking back, this logic makes no sense whatsoever. My hometown is less than an hour away from Ottawa, and I knew of multiple people who were coming to the same university, or one of the other post secondary schools in the city. But, nonetheless, it was the idea I had in my head, so when I just kept running into people from back home, I found it weird.
