Since leaving my office job and turning my photography business into my sole profession I have prefaced all face-to-face conversations with the fact that I don’t see or talk to many people throughout the workweek. Whether it’s a client consult or a session, the lack of human interaction throughout the day leads me to be a wee bit rambly when I finally meet up with actual people. And of course, that has only gotten amplified since covid came to be. But lucky for me I get to work with some truly delightful, and apparently patient, people because even after all my rambling throughout their session and seemingly never-ending stories as we chatted in the parking lot afterwards, Alexandra + Ryan stuck it out.Continue reading “Baxter Conservation Area Engagement Session: Alexandra + Ryan”
Where do I even start with this one?! Seriously I don’t know. Samantha + Damjan are honest-to-goodness two of the nicest, most thoughtful people Dave + I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their engagement session took my breath away and their wedding day was one of the most touching and heart-warming celebrations we have gotten to be a part of. So when Damjan reached out to me about their maternity session, I was so ridiculously excited – and even more so because it was all a complete surprise for Sam!!Continue reading “Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Maternity Session: The Radulovics”
Fall in Ottawa this year was super weird, mostly because it lasted about a week before the cold, cold winter temperatures hit the capitol. And then, basically the day before Jennifer + Steve’s session, the snow came super early too. But although it was super chilly for early November, the cross-over of the season definitely gave a unique and awesome background for their session.
Samantha + Damjan may just be the most awesome people ever! Not only are they drop dead gorgeous, but they are genuinely kind, thoughtful and loving too! Throw into all of that their two adorable children (who hijacked their ceremony) and all of their incredibly fun friends and family and this was definitely a wedding day we will never forget!!
For us, the day we chose to get married was actually based on availability of a few of our preferred vendors and not for the date itself. And even though I joke that it was chosen because it is 6-months from my birthday (and I therefore get a present every 6-months), it truly was just a day in September that fit our criteria. That being said, it is now a very special date for us and the fact that we now share it with two people as truly wonderful as Leandra + Lucas is pretty darn awesome!
