So Much Love! ~ Ottawa Family and Newborn Photographer

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.


Little Levi :: Ottawa Newborn Photograper

Oh this little guy! He’s just the sweetest!

Back in February my dear friends Chrissy and Steve welcomed their beautiful baby boy Levi into the world! The original plan was for me to drive to the hospital (about an hour outside of Ottawa) and would photograph the birth. Levi, however, had other plans and his birth happened much quicker than anyone expected. Before I could arrange to get there, it was all over!

The next morning my family and I drove out to meet him and congratulate the new parents. Even though I had missed the birth, I was happy to bring my camera along anyway and capture some moments of the three of them in the hospital. What I love about photos like this is the authenticity. I know a lot of people probably wouldn’t think of the hospital as an ideal place and time to have professional newborn photos taken, but it definitely is! You just need the right photographer to make the ordinary moments look extraordinary 😉

Thanks so much to Steve and Chrissy for having me in to capture some of these first moments with little Levi! I have a funny feeling that this won’t be the last time these three are featured here on the blog! 😉

If you are expecting a baby and are interested in having a set of newborn photos taken in-hospital, let’s get in touch! Newborns grow and change in the blink of an eye. Capturing these sweet first moments as a new family are so important and will be a treasured memory for years to come!

Ottawa Family Photography :: Baby Dezyn!

What a fantastic weekend! Even though we got some major rain on Saturday, that didn’t stop me from having a fun in-home newborn session with the Rahim family! Their beautiful son Dezyn clearly stole the show – and with good reason! At only 7 weeks old he may take the cake as one of the calmest infants I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Lots of intense stares and animated facial expressions – and get a load of that amazing head of hair! I love, love, love babies at this age. So much personality emerging!

Another thing I thought was extra special about this session, besides the star himself, was the colourful modern artwork that decorated Alison and Riyad’s home. I was so impressed to learn that these two have personally created the majority of the artwork that decorates the walls, including a beautiful personalized piece for Dezyn! I love that we were able to incorporate a bit of their art in the backgrounds of these photos. I think it gives them that extra special personal touch!

Lifestyle newborn photos are such a fun, authentic way of capturing a new family. This style of newborn photography is my favourite as it really shows the beauty in real life moments and tells a story of where the family’s life is at right now. Because these photos illustrate real life, I find that they work best displayed in an album and/or a DVD slideshow.

Thank you again Rahim family for having me into your home to photograph your sweet little family! I sincerely enjoyed spending the morning documenting the love the three of you share. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future!
