When Rebecca + Keith emailed me to introduce their new baby girl, I must admit I was stumped for a second. They shared her name and it definitely took me a second to figure out how to pronounce it. I then confirmed said pronunciation via Google so I would be sure to say it correctly when I got to meet her in person (thanks internet!). And since you may now be wondering, it is pronounced like the beginning of Island and it is honestly one of the prettiest, original names I have heard in a while.Continue reading “Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Isla”
It took Little Baby Jakub about 2 minutes to make a big stinker after I got him all wrapped up! He just seemed to know exactly when the wrap was done so he could get started, haha. Fortunately for me, my swaddles tend to keep most of the smell in, but then again that just means when it does come time to start unwrapping, there is an extra big surprise for all of us!!Continue reading “Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Jakub”
I’m not going to lie, I was equal parts excited and nervous for Charlie + Lily’s newborn session. Although I had done a twin session before, I was super nervous that maybe it was just a fluke that I got through that previous one on my own, or really at all. And then of course, Dave’s question of whether or not I needed an assistant didn’t really help since he asked it the morning of the session, like 2 hours before the babies were due to arrive (he was really just being curious and not trying to be critical at all). But as it turns out, these little cuties had no plans of making things too hard on me, and their session was pretty amazing, if I do say so myself!
I honestly don’t even know where to start with this one folks. Baby Alice was a dream to work with. She was passed out when she arrived and pretty much stayed that way the whole time she was here, even when I dragged her session out for almost an extra hour (because it’s hard to stop when the baby is being so amazing)! But more importantly than any of that, this session was extra special because it was for dear friends of ours who we have known for sooo long now!
It 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!
