The B Family are long time clients of mine, so when they contacted me to photograph their growing brood (including their newest newborn daughter) I couldn’t have been happier. As some long time blog readers may recall, this mama actually had me photograph the birth of her eldest daughter in 2012. You can watch that here if you’re curious!
This time I was so happy to meet their newest little peanut. With tons of jet black hair and the happiest, brightest eyes, she was simply irresistible. It was very clear how much her parents and older siblings just adored her. The slightest peep and someone was right there with a kiss or a soft rub of her head. She’s a lucky little girl to be surrounded by so much love!
Thanks so much B family for inviting me into your home to catch up with your lovely family for a photo session! I hope we have the opportunity to do it again some day!
If you live in the Ottawa area and are interested in booking your own family or newborn photo session, I’d love to hear from you! My approach to these types of sessions is very relaxed with an emphasis on capturing you and your family as perfectly imperfect as you are.
This lovely wee family contacted me back in late summer/early Fall to have a few family photos taken amongst the beautiful leaves and fall colours. Naturally, I’m excited to work with any family, but I did especially enjoy this session because their daughter Lauren was at a perfect age for lots of genuine smiles. Mom and Dad had informed me prior to our session that due to a rare condition she was born with, sitting up on her own, crawling etc. would not be an option. But as you’ll see from the photos below, that had absolutely no effect whatsoever on the amount of fun we had and the genuinely sweet and happy images we were able to capture. Lauren was FULL of smiles and Mom and Dad were SO in love with their little princess and each other that that the connection they shared could be felt. This family is one that reminds me of exactly what I love about my job as an family photographer in Ottawa 🙂
A big, big thank you to the Menard-LaVictoire family for the fun and relaxing afternoon spent with your family. I hope these images are ones you’ll be able to look back on and cherish for a life time!

Being rocked to sleep by Mommy, cuddled by Daddy, held, kissed, loved and cherished. I just can’t imagine a more perfect way to photograph a newborn but in their natural state of sweetness. Believe it or not, there was a time in my career that I envied the photographers who could creatively pose babies in baskets, on blankets or with a wide array of fluffy hats.
I thought that was what newborn photography was and that was all it could really be. But the more time I spent with my clients, talking with them, spending time in their homes, in their lives getting to know them and what they love about the time in their lives right now, the more I realized I was wrong. For me and the clients I work with, I really feel like the most important memories are the ones they are living with their babies right now. While the posed photography creates a different type of art in and of itself (and can be SO beautiful), there is nothing as precious as this moment. And when your babies are grown, what are the type of memories you’ll want to have to look back on? I promise, they will be the ones where the love can be not only seen but also felt. That’s how I knew I had to deliver something different. Something that documented the joy and love in this newly formed family.
Baby Nikola is just such a wonderful baby. At one month old, she was alert, inquisitive and seemed so content with being held by Mommy or Daddy. What I loved most about this session (as with so many newborn sessions) is that feeling that goes along with being in the presence of new love. Ray and Joanne were simply enthralled with this little peanut. Every sound, every face, every movement was perfection. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as seeing this love through the eyes of a new parent. Baby Nikola is a lucky girl to have such kind, attentive parents and as this family continues to bloom I sincerely hope I have the opportunity to work with them again. If Nikola is this adorable NOW, I can only imagine what the future holds 😉
