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!

Chris + Lily

I first met Chris and Lily a few years ago, when they asked me to photograph their sweet little family. This summer I was lucky enough to capture their beautiful wedding day at Bean Town Ranch in Ottawa. It was a day filled with love, laughter, a perfectly timed rainbow, two pairs of adorable mint shoes for the bride, a super fun photo booth, and the best donuts I’ve ever tasted. Check out some shots from the day below. Congrats, Chris & Lily!

Sweet Summertime

There are lots of things to love about summertime, including the fact that it’s a perfect time for photo sessions! A lot of my clients obviously feel the same way, because the last few months have been busy, busy, busy. Engagements, maternity, newborns, families, cake smashes — I’ve done it all! So many great shoots that I’d love to share, but here are just a few of my favourite images from the last few months.

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!

Love is in the air.

When Lily & Chris contacted me about doing a winter engagement session, I was so excited! Not many people choose to do photos outside in the winter time, but it is one of the most beautiful times of year (if you are brave enough to deal with the snow & cold!) We were lucky enough to have scheduled our session the day after a serious snowfall, which meant everything looked soft and magical. We trekked through deep snow and had some close calls on some slippery ice, but we made it out alive, with some absolutely gorgeous photos to show for it! Congratulations, Lily & Chris. You make a beautiful couple.

Coming Soon: Baby!

I had such a great time photographing Karen & her beautiful baby bump. It was a chilly November afternoon, but we ventured outside to get some photos in a nearby park, and it was worth it! The light was gorgeous and Karen is absolutely glowing. I can’t wait to meet their new addition this winter! Here are a few of my favourites from the session.

All You Need is Love…

This was probably one of my very favourite photo shoots to date. Not only because I was lucky enough to photograph a pair adorable lovebirds in a completely beautiful location, but because these two happen to be two of my very best friends. I have known Crystal and Claude for about 10 years, and I remember when they first started dating (way back when we were teenagers!) — and now they are getting married! I could not be happier for these two crazy kids, and I am SO excited for their big day!

Congratulations, friends! Love you both. xo
