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 Studio Newborn Photography: Valerie

When it comes to babies some into the studio super sleepy and completely ready for their session, and others need a little extra time to get a snack (or occasionally have full meal), some cuddles and/or a little bit of awake time before they are set for their time in front of the camera. But lucky for me, Darling Baby Valerie fell into that first category and was ready for her session the moment she arrived!

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Wesley

I know I have said this before, but it really is just the most special thing for me to be able to capture the teeny babies of our previous wedding couples. Not only do I love snuggling the next generation, but I love getting to catch up with our couples as they start a new chapter of their lives together. All of this to say that Baby Wesley’s session was extra special as I got to catch up and hang out with his amazingly fun parents Sarah + Kelvin!

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 Studio Newborn Session: Luka

I had a huge list of props, poses and outfits for Baby Luka. And this was after having cut it in half when I was prepping the studio. I was certain he wouldn’t get through it all, since the list was seriously massive, but not only was I determined to do as much as possible, I really couldn’t bear to go without any of the options.

Now to be fair, I do always over prep so that I am ready for both the worst case scenario, where they want nothing to do with non-swaddled photos, and best case scenario, where they are sleepy the entire time and fall into every pose effortlessly. So yeah, having more ready to go than I know we will get through is normal, but it had been so long since I had a baby boy in the studio that I really struggled choosing what items to use and what not to use.
