Professional Headshots Ottawa :: Andria

I’ve had a huge influx of inquiries for professional headshots for the month of July! It seems more and more Ottawa area creatives, students, entrepreneurs and other business professionals are choosing the more relaxed ‘lifestyle’ approach to their portraits. In addition to this making a busier spring/summer/fall season for me (YAY!)…I’m really happy to see this shift from a personal standpoint. As someone who is naturally a bit introverted, I know that when I’m searching for a company to work with or an individual to hire for something, I always love it when I can find some sort of personal connection. A warm, natural smile goes a long way in making me feel comfortable as a client or customer. So when other professionals get the importance of this, I think it can only benefit them in the long run!

The lovely Andria had such a naturally funny quirkiness to her that was impossible not to like! Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good laugh or two when I’m working. It was a pleasure to meet you Andria! I hope these images serve you well, now and in the future!

If you live in the Ottawa area and are interested in booking your own Professional Headshots, I’d love to hear from you! There couldn’t be a more perfect time to make this investment in your business, brand or career!

Blossoms and Big Love :: Ottawa Family Photographer

For all of the years I’ve lived and worked in Ottawa as a family photographer, I’d always dreamed that the stars would align and I would end up with a family session at Ottawa’s Ornamental Gardens when apple blossom trees were in full, perfect bloom. With such a short window of opportunity for capturing these, it’s easy to be a few days too early or a few days too late and miss them altogether. Then there’s always a chance that the family I happen to be working with has another location in mind. Whatever the reason, I’ve always ended up missing them at their peak. This time though…luck was definitely on my side!

When this lovely crew contacted me to capture them in celebration of Grandma and Grandpa’s 50th Anniversary, I was so honoured and excited. I often photograph extended families here in Ottawa, but it’s not every day you get to be part of such an incredible milestone! The fact that the trees were in full bloom and the love was abundant only added to the beauty of this otherwise overcast, slightly rainy day. About half way through the session it began to rain. But we pushed through regardless and it was well worth it! Both the family and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the resulting images.

Professional Headshots Ottawa – The lovely Donna!

If you are a follower of my work, you’ll probably recognize the lovely Donna as 1/6th of The TBBs. I’ve worked with this amazing group of ladies more times than I can even remember now. Often as a group but also in family sessions and for professional business headshots. It’s no secret how much I adore all of them, really. As a photographer, I can’t even express how grateful and honoured I am to have these opportunities. These ladies have trusted me with some of their most fun, special and memorable moments. That’s something I can’t thank them for enough.

When Donna contacted me to update her business headshots, I was of course thrilled! Since laughter and The TBBs often go hand in hand I knew Donna and I would have a great time. And I was right. 🙂 As an entrepreneur, Donna knew the importance of representing herself in a way that reflected who she is. Her choice was a beautiful, outdoor location that I have used many times before. It’s the perfect country-like setting that I think lends very well to her laid back personality.

Thank you a million times over for having me capture these images for you Donna. That contagious smile of yours was a pleasure to photograph as always!
