Baby Bea - In Home Newborn Session - Ottawa Family Photographerl.

This was a very special newborn session with an amazing family I hold close to my heart.

Bea was an incredible last gift her father, Shane, left his family before he past away two months ago.

Bea... "she who brings Happiness"

In Home Newborn Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Family Photographer

This beautiful and very large set was just sent off to this amazing family this afternoon and I am so excited to be sharing it with you all. If I didn't think it was over kill, I'd just share all 150+ images. It's so difficult picking and choosing what images I'd like to share for my blog. I absolutely love story telling and I feel that every image is a page to a story and if I skip an important moment it makes it harder to follow along. I do hope that I chose all the right moments to allow you, the viewer, to feel all the right emotions..

Please enjoy!

 

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.

The Sharfsteins' In Home Newborn Session - TWINS - Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer

I don't know how, but I managed to forget to blog this beautiful newborn TWIN session I had last month... I think my mom brain is clouding my memory.

When I arrived at Wendy and Eric's home in January, Eric was still upstairs getting ready and I just want to say I had/have the most respect for Wendy who was totally rocking this new mom of twins gig!  A total pro already without a doubt, especially also dealing with the chaos of recently moving. Multiple times throughout our session I had the urge to give her a standing ovation. When you scroll through these images, you'll notice this incredible calmness about her.

Theodore - In Home Newborn Lifestyle Session - Ottawa Photographer

This family is one of my favourites. I have been documenting them since before Flo, their not quite 2 year old, was born.

I first photographed their maternity session. I was referred to them by an amazing, east coast photographer, Evan McMaster (check him out if ever you are in the East Coast and need a photographer. He's wonderful!). He photographed my first maternity session when he just happened to be visiting Ottawa back in 2014 and he photographed Sabrina and Jacques wedding when they lived in New Brunswick. Thank you Evan for sending these amazing people my way. The more we get to know each, at each session, the better our sessions get. We have gotten so comfortable with each other which makes for the bestest sessions...

Congratulations, Sabrina and Jacques, on your beautiful new addition to the family. Theodore is absolutely amazing just like his big sister, Florence.

Suzie and Aaron - In Home Newborn Lifestyle - Ottawa Photographer

I'm back baby!

Dang, it feels good to be back shooting for my amazing clients.

For now, I'm only booking in home newborn sessions, because those babies grow way too darn fast to be able to wait, but also because I friggin' adore these sessions so much. 

Suzie and Aaron welcomed their beautiful daughter Eloise to the world on Dec. 28th and at just 2 weeks old I had the privilege of photographing this brand new family.

Ellie is one lucky little babe. As you scroll through, I am almost certain you will feel the love radiate through your screen. 

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;)

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.

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.

The Herrington's - Family/Newborn Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

You may remember this beautiful family from last month. We had a family/maternity session and it was gosh darn amazing. Well I returned to photographed them again to capture them as a family of five. The gender was a surprise , and low and behold.... they had another BOY. Jude is absolutely stunning just like the rest of his family. 

Ziya - Newborn In Home Session - Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer

You probably recognize Leily and Chris from an in home maternity session I had only a month or so ago. I had the pleasure of meeting their beautiful Ziya, who was eight days new. He was seriously perfect and he practically slept the entire session as happy as can be, all snug in his mom and dad's arms. Please enjoy all the fresh cuteness.
