Ottawa Family Photographer :: Marley and Us

When Meagan and Rob contacted me, I was SO excited to hear that they wanted to have a photo session with their Basset Hound Marley. As an avid dog lover myself, and as someone who grew up with Beagles as family pets, I have a soft spot for hounds and was really excited to be doing a session that included a slobbery faced, long eared, big hearted pooch 🙂 Continue reading

Ottawa Family Photographer :: The Kirke Family

Firstly, I must apologize! I’m soooo behind on my blogging! I’m hoping to get caught up with past sessions over the next few days/week though so be sure to check back for lots more family sessions!
What a super fun time it was at the Arboretum here in Ottawa with the Kirke family! What I thought was neat was that they had visited the Arboretum prior to getting together with me for their photos and the girls had pre-scouted the area for things that they loved. They knew where all of the nice spots were, including the trees perfect for climbing! Of course, they were MORE than eager to show me what they liked and in the case of Margaret (the youngest of the two) she was MORE than happy to show me exactly how she liked to pose. 😉 It was a lot of fun, and what made it even better was the addition of their 5 month old Goldendoodle named Hugo. Hugo is definitely up there with one of the most beautiful dogs I’ve ever photographed!

Thanks so much Kirke family for choosing me to capture the fun on this afternoon with the four of you and Hugo! I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves as much as I did and I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future!

Ottawa Pet Photographer ~ Peanut

My family has two dogs. The older of the two is Emma. A full-bred, loyal, sweet, super diva Pug. The younger of the two is Peanut. An extra tiny Pug/Shih-Tzu mix who is hyper, full of personality and borderline nuts. At 1.5  years old, she’s still as Puppy-ish as they come in both looks and activity level. And as a result, Peanut and I have a complicated relationship. I love her dearly….but I’m sure I could put my kids through college if I tallied up the dollar value of the things this dog has single handedly destroyed. 😉

This is the first real opportunity I’ve had to photograph Peanut. Typically when I get down to her level to take a photo I end up with a dog lunging at the camera, thinking that I must be crouching down to play. A couple of days ago I just happened to have my camera ready just before she decided to go for a nap though. I quietly approached her, sat down ever so softly on the floor in front of her and was able to snap a few photos while she was still relatively groggy. I, of course, did not have the opportunity to clean the gunk out of her eyes or bathe her in preparation for her blog debut, but this shows you the real Peanut. The true face of the little dog that brings us so much stress…err…I mean joy. 😉



I’m grateful that I did seize this opportunity. Our dogs are very much a part of our families and our every day life, yet sadly they both end up forgotten when it comes to pictures. I hope to spend more time photographing our furry family members this year. Animals are only with us for such an incredibly short time, yet they have the ability to make such an impact on our lives. I never want my kids to forget the faces and personalities of the animals who’s lives have helped shape theirs. That’s why photography is so wonderful. It allows us to never forget.
