The McMahons - Family Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Family Photographer

I'm taking it back to sunny, warm days. Back to ice cream dripping down your cone, playing in the warm water and watching sunsets. Back to this an amazing family session I had the honour of photographing in August of last year with the McMahons.

Valerie and Grace - Family Mini Session - Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer

Valerie was the winning bidder of a mini session I donated to the annual Ottawa Fur Kids Online Auction last year. When she reached out to book a session, I was about to give birth to Ruby. So she kindly waited and we finally captured some amazing memories with her daughter, Grace, a few weeks ago. We had an absolute blast! 

Ottawa Fur Kids Online Auction is run every year in February. I will gladly donate another session next year so keep an eye out for it!

Jessica and Alan - Engagement Session - Ottawa Wedding Photographer

Joined Jessica, Alan and their pup Hurley at a park close to their home earlier this month for their engagement session. Jess and Alan rocked it despite the fact that Hurley discovered a rabbit's nest 2 seconds in and found herself incredibly distracted (no doubt!). 

We then made our way to Andrew Haydon park just the 3 of us and Jess knew of some hidden gems on the grounds that I never even knew existed (props to Jess!!!).

Seriously these two were on fire, every single shot was a keeper. Ennnjoyyyyyyy!

Look out for them again on my feed come September!

Logan turns 2 - Extended Family Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

We definitely all got our workout in chasing sweet sweet Logan around the park back in May.

Logan's mom, Hailey, gifted this session to both of Logan's  two sets of grandparents but also GREAT grandparents. Seriously, an incredible gift. Irreplaceable moments now frozen in time for Logan to look back on and know just how much he is loved.

Eden - In Home Newborn Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

I met Eden's mom and dad, Dani and James, while shooting Dani's sister's wedding last year. We were both pregnant, myself nearing the end and Dani at the beginning of her pregnancy. Throughout that day, I documented Dani and James interacting and playing with their nieces, thinking to myself what amazing parents they will become. And here I am 8 months later photographing their beautiful daughter Eden, absolutely perfect as can be.

An absolutely pleasure. Congratulations Dani and James, she was definitely worth the wait.

Jess and Jeff - Wedding - Metcalfe, ON - Ottawa Photographer

Jess and Jeff were married on September 16, 2017 and I was able to deliver their full set just before my daughter, Ruby, was born. Blogging my favs got forgotten, until now!

I definitely need to share this wedding because despite the crazy heat that day, it was amazing! I had an absolutely fantastic time with this wonderful group of people. Everyone was crazy welcoming and friendly and so laid back. Jess and Jeff wanted to get to the celebration part as fast as possible, and had the shortest ceremony I have ever witness on the Metcalfe Fair grounds (right across the street from my old high school!), followed by an awesome party with all their family and friends. Ridiculous good time had by all! Check it out!

The Thomas' - Family Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

Wonderful at home session with these five last month. It was my second time making my way to Chesterville to document this ever growing family, with little George as the new addition.

With the combination of three boys, acres of property, their own pond, apple trees and chickens, there was never a dull moment and had me smiling from ear to ear the entire session. Hope this set brings a smile to your face too.

Daisy Turns Two! - Family Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

Daisy turned two in September! We had an amazing family lifestyle session starting with making pudding with daddy and then heading outside to harvest some of the vegetable from their family garden, two of her favourite things. Then we got ready to head to the park where Danielle and Dan used to frequent while they were engaged pre Daisy. Feeding the ducks and birds, blowing bubbles and playing in the fountain, what more could a girl ask for!

I've been watching and documenting Daisy since she was 2 months old and I just absolutely adore this beautiful, smart, little girl as well as her Mom and Dad! Such a wonderful family, can't wait to hang out again!

Jamie & Ricky - Strathmere Wedding - Ottawa Based Photographer

Super fun filled day with Jamie and Ricky and their close friends and family.

It was definitely a scorcher the day of their mid August wedding but I bet you can't even tell in the photos! Everyone stayed positive and stayed cool with fans and beverages;)

Such a wonderful group of people to spend the day with!

Jamie and Ricky, I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.

The Konkles' - Family Mini - Ottawa Based Photographer

Amazing family mini session one morning back in September. Headed to the neighbourhood park for some fun and walked back home for a few photos with their pup (who I believe is 14!!).

If you follow my work you may remember these cuties from last year. I had done their newborn lifestyle session. Seriously twins are so flipping' fun, never a dull moment. 

The Meikles' - Family Mini - Ottawa Based Photographer

Super fun family mini session with the Meikles' last month! I hadn't seen them for a couple of years ( besides running into them several times at Costco! :D ) and it's just so wonderful to reconnect with past clients and see how crazy fast the kids grow!

The Bourques' - Family/Newborn Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

Victoria and Denis are neighbours of mine, and we run into each other at the park from time to time but we never discussed what we do for a living. They had a newborn photographer lined but to photograph their family but unfortunately (fortunately for me), their photographer had an emergency and had to cancel day of, and wouldn't be available to capture all the newness that was tiny little William in time. Victoria told me she happen to randomly see my business pop up on Google maps while searching for something, looked me up and sent me a message.

And here we are...

I am just so in love with their set, and so happy things lined up the way they did. Crazy, beautifully naturally lit home, and extremely wonderful, kind, laid back family. Pardon, this crazy large set, I had a hard time breaking it down;)

Grandbabes - Mini Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

My client, Kate, gifted a mini session to her parents earlier this year. It was used to capture love between grandparents and grandchildren and it was absolutely wonderful to witness.

I hope I can do more of these sessions in future as there was just so much gosh darn love to capture.

Lucas' 1st Birthday - Family Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

I was so thrilled that our schedules aligned and we were able to capture some special moments on the day of Lucas' 1st Birthday. 

A little bath after dinner. A play session with mom and dad and then a leisurely stroll on the grounds of the experimental farm.

During my communication with Elizabeth before our session, she told me that I had a lot of work ahead of me as she felt her and her husband, Mark, were quite unphotogenic... I chuckled as I finished up their set and looked through their photos one last time before sending them off. My camera absolutely LOVED them.... but don't let me try to convince you, I'll let you be the judge.

Maria and Stephen - Wedding - Ottawa Based Photographer

Maria and Stephen.

They are high school sweethearts and the love they share between eachother just shines through.

I recently delivered their whole wedding set to them and now I am excited to share just a glimpse into their amazing day!

It was seriously perfect; weather wise, location wise, and by far the people I spent my day with were incredible. 

Maria and Stephen, I wish these two a life time of love and happiness.

The Wards - Family Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

I have been photographing the Ward's since their oldest son, Liam, has been in Amie's belly.

They have grown with me, and stayed with me since the beginning. Trusting in me to capture and document beautiful memories for them to look back on and I will strive to be better each time I photograph them. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their loyalty and of course, for looking so damn good ;D

The Lee's - Newborn Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

Newborns are one of my favourite sessions to photograph, because it's so raw and real. I am always honoured to be invited into the homes of my families as it's such an intimate time, when everything is just so fresh and new, where everyone is still running on adrenaline, hormones and love with the lack of sleep and mama's are still recovering and healing.

Taking us back to July, I had the pleasure of photographing Janet and Brian's newborn lifestyle session with their first born. So relaxed! These two were pros already after only a week. Feed, burp, sleep, change, repeat. And stare with love and admiration in between.

Catharine & Dan and Kate & Jay - Wedding Anniversary Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

I had a great session back in July with these four at Carbide Willson Ruins in Gatineau Park!

Great friends, who are celebrating 5 and 10 year wedding anniversaries this year!

I've actually never photographed a multiple couple session before, so was curious to see how it would flow, and it worked out just wonderfully. Making each other feel at easy, with lots of laughter.

All four were super adventurous and were up for whatever I asked them to do. Great fun!

Congratulations to all four of you and I wish you many, many more years of love, laughs and adventure!

The Wilson's - Newborn Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

Amazing Family newborn session last month with the Wilson's.

Damien was such a laid back newborn babe and his sister, Tessa was above and beyond helpful. She assisted in diaper changes and even was ever so thoughtful to hydrate momma while she was breastfeeding... she's two!

Please enjoy this beautiful new family of 4.
