Ottawa Birth Photographer :: Baby Kelela Aylen

On the morning of August 18th 2012 I received the phone call I had been anticipating – my birth photography client Cheryl had been feeling contractions and would be headed to the hospital! As the morning went on I grew anxious for the final call to be told that Cheryl had been admitted and that it was time! Shortly thereafter I was on my way to the hospital to photograph the birth of baby Kelela.


When I arrived I was greeted by Cheryl’s excited and anxious mom and cousin in the waiting room. The anticipation in the air was tangible. Being the first grandchild for Cheryl’s parents I could tell this day was monumental. To be in the presence of it was wonderful. Shortly after my arrival I was brought in to see Cheryl. Things progressed slowly at first so we had the opportunity to chat a little and I was able to document some of the details and smaller moments. As the day went on and things progressed we saw a few of Cheryl’s family and friends coming in to hold her hand and offer encouragement (I was told there was quite the turn out of family members in the waiting room by the end of the day!). Two of her close friends remained for the majority of the time though, and what amazing friends they were. Truly. Their positivity and encouragement for Cheryl was inspiring and so beautiful to witness. Everyone deserves friends like these amazing women.


At 7:46pm baby Kelela entered the world at 6 pounds 15 ounces. She was perfect, healthy, beautiful and the most gorgeous head of dark hair! It was apparent from the moment that Cheryl and her family laid eyes on her that everyone was smitten. She is a little girl who is very clearly a treasure to her family. A little princess who is no doubt loved beyond measure.


Cheryl, Kelela, family and friends – I wish you all the happiest of days together as you welcome baby Kelela into your family. It was a privilege for me to be there as your Ottawa birth photographer and to document this miracle in your lives. I sincerely hope that these images will be ones that you hold close to your heart for a lifetime.

Ottawa Newborn Photographer ~ Sweet Baby T

Probably my favorite thing about the type of Newborn Lifestyle Photography I do is the authenticity. No posing, no props and no rules about the age of the baby or how sleepy they must be. Just raw, honest documentation of life. I want to see the half-made beds, the empty baby bottles on the night-stand, the mis-matched baby socks on the dresser and the exhausted but blissful smile on Mom’s face as she gazes down at her sweet miracle. These are real moments. These are the moments that you will forget. And in 5, 10, 15 years from now when you look back at your newborn photos, it is my ultimate hope is that the images from your session will flood your heart with memories of this wonderful, emotional time – exactly as it happened.

When Sandra contacted me for baby T’s photos, I was delighted at the opportunity to photograph a 5 week old! For lifestyle newborn photography, this is a fantastic age. The baby is still so newborn-ish (yes, I do believe I made that word up…) but at the same time, alert and becoming more aware of the world around them. Baby T was a sweetheart too. Chubby round cheeks and just the littlest double chin made him one totally edible little dude! Oh, and you may remember Sandra from the family photography session at Mooney’s Bay over the Summer! So yes, that means that little A is a big sister! 🙂

Thank you so much Sandra and baby T for having me in your home to photograph the love that you share. I hope I have the opportunity to photograph all four of you in the not too distant future!
