I’m a huge dog lover and that’s no secret to anyone who knows me (I have three!). Needless to say, I’m generally open to dogs at any session as long as they can follow basic commands, can sit for a photo (even just for a moment), and if they are allowed at the location we’ve chosen. Because the M family had recently adopted their new pup Oscar and wanted for him to be a part of the shoot, we definitely wanted to choose a spot where he’d be allowed. So we trekked down to the Arboretum with puppy in tow for some family photos!
I think the images paint a pretty clear picture of how well-loved this pooch is by his adoring mom and siblings! He stole the show and kept all of us laughing with his goofy antics and slobbery kisses. It was a really fun time! I’m so happy that the M family thought to document this time for their family and I’m thrilled that they love their family photos!
If you are interested in having your own set of family photos (with or without your pup!) with Ottawa Family Photographer, Danielle Lynn Photography, I’d love to hear from you! I have several upcoming evening and weekend session dates available this spring, summer and fall and I’d love to meet your family this year!
I’m almost embarrassed to admit how flipping LONG it’s taken me to get this session blogged! It’s actually one of my most favourite family sessions of 2016 so it definitely needs to be shared!
These were taken towards the end of last summer (eep!) with the lovely B-Z family at the Experimental Farm here in Ottawa. As we approached the session date I remember bracing myself for the wildness that is a typical toddler. Sometimes they love being photographed. Other times…well…I’m sure you can imagine! Once we began the session, however, I was so happy to find out how into it she was. So many smiles and giggles and such a genuinely beautiful connection with mom and dad – it was pure perfection, honestly. This made for such sweet images that I know her parents were very thrilled with.
A huge belated thank you to the B-Z family for choosing me to photograph your adorable wee family! I had a blast and I SO hope we have the opportunity to do it again some day! <3

Sessions are booking up quickly for spring and summer 2017 so don’t miss out!
Now that Spring has officially spring in Ottawa I thought it was best time that I update my blog with some of what I’ve been up to since I last posted! I’ve had TONS of family sessions and TONS of headshot sessions from last fall, winter and now the spring of 2017, so there’s no shortage of material to share. Whether or not I’ll have time to post all of it is another thing all together….but I’ll try to share a few of my favourites in the coming days and weeks!
This fantastic family contacted me with the idea to do a relaxed lifestyle type of family session in and around their neighbourhood of Hintonburg. This, of course, was immediately exciting and I knew right away that we could create something fun. Hintonburg is an area of Ottawa that is known as one of the more ‘up and coming’ spots. It’s eclectic and trendy with a real mix of modern and traditional in terms of the scenery and the various buildings that are around. Thankfully, this lovely family was super collaborative and open to every idea I had, which really made my job fun and easy. We were all thrilled with the resulting images!
Thanks a bunch to the M’s for asking me to photograph your beautiful family in your beautiful neighbourhood! I hope to have the pleasure again some day!
If you are interested in having your own family photographed by Ottawa Family Photographer Danielle Lynn Photography, please get in touch! With the nice weather for 2017 in full swing I’m looking forward to getting to know some new Ottawa families!
