Ottawa Photographer :: Lots of big, BIG news!


I am SO, SO excited to share with you all of my big news!!! After many late nights, headaches, re-designs, revisions and the incredible patience of my wonderful husband – I have a FABULOUS NEW website and blog! So I am so pleased to present: the new and improved Danielle Lynn Photography!

For this new website and blog, I decided I wanted to go for a simpler, cleaner look. I needed them to be super functional and easy for my clients to navigate. Most of all though, it had to be unique. For me, this year is all about continuing to set myself apart, being different and showing Ottawa how professional photography is really done. 😉 My work isn’t cookie cutter…and I run a far from boring photography company…so why should my site be just average? After a phenomenal 2011 (and a wonderful 2012 so far) I am feeling proud, confident and excited about my work and I’m thrilled to have this brand new website to showcase it. 🙂


You may have also noticed from the main slider on the home page of the new website that I have a new slogan. Yup…3 years later and I finally have a slogan to call my own. Up till now I was never in a huge hurry to find a slogan to be honest. I wanted the words to find me, not the other way around. And for the love of Pete it couldn’t be kitchy, cliche or full of photography related buzz words. So as I was going through my images to create my new site I began thinking about what my images represent. What sort of story do they tell about my clients? What sort of things might my clients be feeling at the exact moment the shutter is clicked? And what is the message I want to give potential clients about the kind of photographs I want to take for them? And then it dawned on me:

It was like the sky opened up, the clouds parted and the angels sang “Awwwhhhhh”. It had finally found me. And I’m in love with it. Jump-on-the-bed, throw-my-hands-in-the-air L.O.V.E. It represents everything I want my images to represent. It represents truth. It represents happiness. It represents family. It represents love. It represents me. It represents you.

In celebration of all of these wonderful things happening for me and my lovely little company, I wanted to do something fun by giving something away. This isn’t a random giveaway. You don’t have to Tweet it or do anything on Facebook. Its simply something I wanted to do for the next clients who book a family session with Danielle Lynn Photography. You see, I LOVE to see a client’s images showcased in their home. Actually, a couple of weeks ago I did a session for a family who’s photos I also took in the summer of 2011. And I actually got EXCITED to see that they had printed so many of the images from the disc that they purchased and had them displayed in various areas of their home. THAT my friends, is what this is all about for me. So I figured, what better to give away than FRAMES! Beautiful, hand-crafted, hand-painted, boutique style picture frames from the fabulous Zin Frames!

These gorgeous Canadian made frames are crafted to hold an 8×10 image (although once the image is in the frame, the whole thing looks more like an 11×14 due to the lovely border) and comes with a glare-free plexiglass to keep your photos protected and secure inside the frame. There is also hardware on the back which allows you to hang your frame on the wall either vertically or horizontally. Or, if you don’t want to hang it, these could also be displayed on your desk using a lovely easel. This particular design that I am giving away is called ‘Ameile’ and all three are Ivory in colour.

I have only THREE of these beautiful frames. So the next THREE clients to book and pay for a session with me will receive ONE frame, and ONE 8×10 print to go inside as my gift to you. 🙂 You can use the session immediately OR it can be presented to you or a loved one in Gift Certificate format! This frame and the lovely 8×10 print to go inside are worth an over $85 Value!



How do I do it? Simple! Just fill out the contact form indicating that you would like to book a session. This session can be used ANY TIME and can be used by yourself or purchased as a gift for a friend. I will send you an invoice to pay your session fee as well as the rest of the information to complete the booking and that’s it! You can look forward to your fun, one-of-a-kind session with yours truly AND a lovely frame to display your treasured memories in!

Please note:

* Sessions booked must be regular sessions only, and may not be combined with any other offer.

* Frames have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for any other product or service.

Thank you all so much in sharing my big news with me! If you haven’t been over to the new Danielle Lynn Photography website yet, please check it out!!

But this is one that I really believe in, so I’m happy to be back again this year! You can read all about this event and the rest of the wonderful vendors on their website!

So if you’ve been thinking of coming out, or have been thinking about booking a session with me, be sure that you are one of the first people in! I’d love for those of you who don’t know me to come and say hello as well! I know there are tons of you on Twitter and Facebook who are followers/fans that I’ve never met…and I’d love to put some faces to names!

The details are as follows: Shopping and Sweets – THIS COMING SATURDAY December 3rd from 10-2pm at the Shenkman Arts Centre, Orleans.
