Miss Madeleine | Ottawa Newborn Photographer

I got to meet & photograph this darling little girl on a cold winter morning last weekend. She was one of the strongest, most alert newborns I’ve had in a long time! She didn’t want to miss out on any of the action and tried her very hardest to stay awake. But mama had the magic touch and we eventually managed to get some darling sleepy shots as well. Here are just a few from our session. (How beautiful is this family?!)

Baby Allison | Ottawa Newborn Photographer

Oh sweet little Allison! She was such a darling and so much fun to photograph. She was wide awake for the first half of her session, and then fell asleep like a champ for the last half — can’t ask for anything better than that! Here are a few of my favourites from her session.

Baby Piper | Ottawa Newborn Photographer

I was so excited to start off the new year with a photoshoot with one of my favourite families, who had just welcomed their second beautiful daughter on Christmas Eve. It has been a joy to watch Livia grow over the past year, and now I got to meet her sweet little sister, Piper. Here are just a few photos from our session.

Melissa + Darryl: Maternity | Ottawa Maternity Photographer

I absolutely love when I get clients brave enough to choose an outdoor winter session! Photoshoots in the snow can be a bit on the chilly side, but they are so, so pretty & magical. Melissa & Darryl actually live in Gaspe, Quebec, so a little snow & cold wasn’t going to bother them anyway! We trudged through the snow to get some beautiful shots of the mama- & daddy-to-be. Here’s a little peek at our session!

Happy New Year!

2013 was pretty great. I had the chance to meet and photograph so many lovely families, couples, children, and newborns. Wishing all of my wonderful clients & supporters a very happy new year. I look forward to capturing more of your precious memories in 2014!

And here is a look at all of the precious newborns that I got to cuddle and photograph this year. I love my job. 🙂
