The Barter Family | Ottawa Family Photographer

There’s nothing better than an outdoor family session on a beautiful summer morning! I met this family last autumn and I’ve gotten to photograph them a couple of times since then. We had so much fun during this session, and I love seeing the joy that these three share!

Also, how cute is Mister Cole? Love him!

Here are a few of my favourites 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!

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.
