Dan + Jenna

Jenna’s friends bought her a gift certificate for an engagement session, and I met up with her and her fiance Dan on a beautiful spring evening in downtown Ottawa. These two are so much fun — we spent the whole session laughing. They also happen to be a ridiculously cute couple, and it was easy to see how much they love each other. They are getting married down south this November, and I just know it is going to be the most beautiful, happy day. Congratulations, you two!

Baby Blake

This little man is too adorable for words. He started out his photo session wide awake and loved looking right at the camera — I love when that happens! After some cuddles with his mama, he dozed off and we got some seriously cute sleeping shots too. The best of both worlds! Are you ready for some serious newborn perfection? Here is Mr. Blake.

Welcome, sweet Tilly.

This darling baby girl, who came into the world a little earlier than expected, was born into a family full of so much love. Along with her mama and daddy, she is lucky enough to have an older brother and sister too. I just loved photographing her – she is an absolute doll! Here are just a few of my favourites.

Smash That Cake!

I have been shooting a lot of cake smashes lately and, I have to say, they are SO MUCH FUN! I love seeing the birthday boys and girls all dressed up in their cute party outfits, and then — even better — watching them discover and get messy with their beautiful (and delicious) cakes. Some of them waste no time diving right into the cake, while others are a bit more reserved and polite about the whole thing. It’s really fun (and funny) to watch. Besides, there is something very special and exciting about a first birthday, and I love being there to capture that moment in time. If you are thinking about a cake smash for your little birthday guy or girl, I would love to work with you to bring your vision to life.

Check out a few fun moments from my recent cake smashes below!

Felix wasn’t sure about his cake at first. But we convinced him to take the plunge. 🙂

I always love taking Miss Emersyn’s photo. I was in love with this soft and beautiful colour scheme.
