Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Tobias

Ottawa-First-Year-Milestone-Cake-Smash-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI am always a little extra nervous when siblings are involved in sessions, because sometimes they can be a little shy or apprehensive about the whole thing, and the birthday boy can sometimes feed off of that for their solo portion of the photos.

Jenn wanted snow on her wedding day and boy-oh-boy did she get it! This wonderfully sweet couple definitely made the most of it during their portrait portion of the day! Getting completely drenched by the snow was definitely worth the shots we got out in that less than pleasant weather.⁠⠀
