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.

Ottawa Family Photography :: Fun at the Park!

This time of year is the time I realize how very fortunate I am to live in the city of Ottawa. I’m sure it’s the case with most Canadian cities, but Mother Nature really enjoys job showing off here this time of year I think. The colour is one thing…but what I think I love most is the light. If we are lucky enough to have a sunny day, the evening light of late summer/early fall is to die for. It creates the illusion of magic, I think. So when I happen to also have a family photo session scheduled, I’m just a leeeetle bit giddy 😉

The Kennedy’s were a lot of fun to work with. With an adorable and newly mobile 12 month old and sweet and energetic 5 year old, I expected that we’d mostly end up with candid photos, but I was very happily surprised that we ended up with a good mix of both candid and posed. We ended up having a lot of fun and by the end of it, I think the kids were both exhausted. Okay, maybe I was too. 😉 A big thank you to the Kennedy Family for spending this lovely evening with me! I hope these photos are ones that your family enjoys for years to come!

Now that we are officially into fall, my schedule is almost full! If you had hoped to book fall family photos and take advantage of this gorgeous weather we’ve been having here in Ottawa, contact me today!
