Julie | Expecting {Ottawa Maternity Photography}

I met up with Julie & Greg on a gorgeous summer evening at the Mer Bleue Boardwalk. It was a beautiful night (despite the bugs!) and I love the dreamy, golden feel to these images. I’m looking forward to seeing them again in a few weeks, this time with a special new addition!

Summer Babies {Ottawa Newborn Photography}

I had the pleasure of photographing so many sweet newborns over the past few months. Newborn sessions are so much fun — every single baby is different, and you never know what photos or moments you will capture. Of course, getting lots of newborn cuddles is a fringe benefit of the job! Here are some of the darling babies I met this summer.

Noha | Expecting {Ottawa Maternity Photography}

When a client shows up for her maternity session with bright blue heels in hand, I know we’re going to get along just fine! Noha was absolutely glowing, and we had a wonderful evening session starting in Major’s Hill Park and ending in the sunken courtyard behind the National Gallery. I can’t wait to meet and photograph their baby boy in just a few weeks! Here are some of my favourites from their maternity session.


A Best Friend Session {Ottawa Portrait Photography}

A few months ago, my best friend’s sister, Robyn, approached me about doing a best friend session with her and four of her closest girlfriends. I had never really done anything like it before, so I was excited for the chance to try something new. We met up at Strathcona Park in Ottawa (and I must say I was quite excited to see the girls show up in perfectly coordinated — but not matching! — pastel colours, which photographed perfectly in the summer evening light). The session was so much fun, and now these girls have some beautiful photos commemorating their decades-long friendship. Here is a little peek at our session.
