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!

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!

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.

It’s a boy… and a girl!

I love getting to photograph twins. Double the fun, right? Brandon and Ashley were so sweet and sleepy, and loved being snuggled in beside each other. At one point, I even caught them holding hands! Here are Miss A and Mr B:
