Romantic Fall-Winter Forest Maternity Photo Shoot Ottawa Ontario

Romantic Fall-Winter Forest Maternity Photo Shoot Ottawa Ontario

Ottawa-Gatineau Maternity Photographers

A few weeks ago I shot a romantic fall-winter forest maternity photo shoot Ottawa Ontario with this awesome couple.  They totally rocked their portrait session.  You just have to look at their photos to see how awesome they did.  As a photographer, I will always give you direction, so don’t worry if you feel awkward in front of a camera.  I will help you to relax and have fun.

With all of my clients, I send them a blog post of what to wear, so that they’ll look their best.  My maternity clients are sent a post on Maternity Photo Session Outfit Advice.  That gives all of the instructions from what to wear, colour options and everything included from head to toe.  These guys nailed it–especially the beautiful mama-to-be.  She had a manicure, her hair and makeup were done.  New clothes, new footwear.  Good colour combo.  And that gorgeous dress of hers, complete with a floral wreath, was stunning.  It really helped create a romantic mood to the portraits.  I mean, just look at the one of her standing alone in that dress on the forest path.  Stunning.

Book You Portrait Session in a Beautiful Outdoor Location

If you’re pregnant and are looking for a beautiful and unique style of maternity session, send me an e-mail.  If you tell me what you’re looking for, I’ll recommend beautiful locations that we can shoot at.  And if I haven’t been to a particular location before, I will always, always, ALWAYS scout out the location to make sure it’s suitable and to also get ideas of where and how to shoot your photos.  It was no different with this shoot.  I had scouted three locations and this one was the best option for what my clients wanted.  I promise to do that for you too.

Contact me today to book your maternity session.  Even if you’re not pregnant, I also shoot family portraits, baby photos, newborn portraits, smash the cake photo sessions.  I also shoot engagement photos and wedding photography in and around Ottawa and Gatineau.

How to Prepare for your Lifestyle Newborn Photo Shoot

How to Prepare for your Lifestyle Newborn Photo Shoot

Ottawa Newborn Baby Photographer | Little Lamb Photography

Hi there.  Whenever I book a newborn session, I send a fairly long e-mail explaining how my clients should prepare for their newborn photo session.  Instead of having to write the same e-mail over and over, I’ve decided to write a blog post in which I can refer my clients to read.  Thus, I decided to write about how to prepare for your lifestyle newborn photo shoot.

Babies are usually better in the morning.  And the light is usually brighter too.  And, since I shoot while my daughter is in school or daycare, shooting in the morning gives me enough time to get back home in time for when she comes home.

Natural Light

I’ll need a room with lots of natural light as I’ll be shooting using available light.  I prefer to shoot in the master bedroom, if possible.  No worries if either your master bedroom doesn’t have enough available light, or if you prefer to shoot in the living room.

I also like to shoot some of the photos in the nursery, if it’s set up.  That way you’ll have some mementos of your baby in their room.  If the nursery is set up, I will also take detail shots of the nursery.  I want you to be able to remember all of those cute little details you thought about when decorating the baby’s bedroom.

This is a lifestyle portrait session, so the posing will be very casual.  However, I will shoot some portraits of the baby by themselves.  For the photos of the baby by themselves, I need a bed to shoot on.  It can either be your bed or a guest bed.  No worries if you haven’t had a chance to tidy up.  I totally understand what it’s like to just have a baby.  I just need a large, flat surface to shoot the baby’s portraits.

Photography Props

If you have a couple of small items or blankets you want the baby to be photographed with, please make sure to have them ready on the morning of the shoot.  That way you don’t have to go searching for them.  Some of the items could be a small handmade blanket or hat.  Or maybe a little toy that has sentimental value.

What to Wear

For both parents, more neutral tones look better with baby.  Avoid clothing with logos or writing as it’s too distracting.  Dressy casual looks good for home portraits.
If you’re pregnant or just had a baby, contact me to book a lifestyle newborn session.  I shoot newborn photos in the comfort of your own home.  I understand how difficult it can be to leave the house once you’ve had a baby.  This take the difficulty out of getting newborn photos taken with your new arrival.  And since it’s a lifestyle session, I will showcase your unique family, your home and your baby’s nursery.

The Nursery

If you have already set up the nursery, I will want to shoot some of the photos in there.  Not only will I shoot photos of baby in the nursery, but I’ll capture the details you’ve taken thought to add as decorations, like pictures or wall art.  I’ll even take photos of that cute little mobile or homemade blanket a family member or friend gave as a present.  I want to documents these little things to help you and your child remember what everything looked like when your little one arrived.  🙂

Contact me to book either your maternity photo shoot and/or your baby’s newborn photo shoot.  I include baby, the new parents as well as any siblings.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Check out a few of my lifestyle newborn photo sessions to get a feel how your own baby’s newborn session will look:

Rustic Wedding Photographer in Ottawa Ontario

Rustic Wedding Photographer in Ottawa Ontario

Ottawa Wedding Photographer

I’m a rustic wedding photographer in Ottawa Ontario.  It’s no secret that I love the country.  In fact, I like anything rustic.  So, when I shot this wedding, I loved all of the rustic touches it had.  We shot the formal portraits at the groom’s family farm in Pakenham, Ontario.  But, before we shot the formal portraits, these two decided to do a first look.

I love shooting the first look session before the rest of the wedding day festivities.  I wish that more couples would do a first look.  It’s such a calm and intimate way to see each other for the first time on your wedding day.  You won’t regret doing a first look.  This is where you’ll get genuine smiles and emotion.

Are you newly engaged?  Perhaps you’re looking for a wedding photographer.  I’d love to hear from you.  Contact me today.

I’m more than thrilled that I reached 1000 Instagram Followers this week!  Yippee!  I’m a total newbie to the whole Instagram world.  I only opened an Instagram account less than a year ago.  It then took me several months before I even started to post on it.  But then, after I started to post on it, I began to post regularly.  Then I made it part of my routine of posting to Instagram.  The effort has paid off.  I’m happy about that.  Follow me on my Instagram journey.

Mariposa Farm Wedding Photography

Mariposa Farm Wedding Photography

Ottawa Natural Light Wedding Photographer

So, as a natural light photographer, I love to shoot outdoors.  Nature always creates beautiful backdrops for portraits.  So, I love shooting portraits of people outdoors.  I also love to shoot outdoor weddings.  On the blog today is some Mariposa Farm wedding photography.  Mariposa Farm is east of Ottawa (about a 30-minute drive).  First of all, it’s a cute working farm, with ducks, geese, cows and horses.  And it’s a cute wedding venue if you’re looking for a quaint location with great food.
