Ottawa Wedding Locations I want to Photograph

Get one extra hour of free wedding photography coverage

ottawa wedding locations i want to photograph copy

There’s several Ottawa wedding locations I want to photograph.  First of all, are you getting married and/or having your reception at one of the following Ottawa area wedding locations?  If so, I’ll happily add one extra hour*, at no charge, onto any of my wedding photography packages.

So, in order to get the complimentary extra hour of wedding coverage, either your ceremony and/or reception must take place at one of the listed locations.  And your formal portraits must be taken there.  I’m using this as a chance to broaden my wedding photography portfolio.  These are specific locations that I’d love to have in my wedding photo portfolio.  It’s a win-win situation for you as well as me.  🙂

*NOTE:  The complimentary hour can’t be used as a discount for any of my wedding photography packages.  For example, if you choose my eight hour wedding package, you’ll get nine hours of coverage.  Thus, you can’t choose the eight hour photo package, ask for only eight hours of coverage, so that I just charge you for seven hours of coverage.  It doesn’t work that way.

Ottawa Area Wedding Venues

Finally, if you’re getting married at one of these locations, I’d love to hear from you.  Contact me today for my pricing guide and to book a meeting so that I can hear all about your fantastic wedding plans.  My photography has been featured on 30+ photography blogs, including wedding and portrait.

Fall Nature Walk at Mackenzie King Estate in Gatineau Park

Fall Nature Walk at Mackenzie King Estate in Gatineau Park

Last autumn, my daughter and I took a fall nature walk at Mackenzie King Estate in Gatineau Park.  I hadn’t been to Gatineau Park in quite a while and I don’t remember the last time I took my daughter there.  So, I decided to take her there where we could walk around and see nature.  My daughter found a fuzzy caterpillar that she let climb all over her.  She had fun running everywhere and climbing trees.  It was nice to spend some time with her.  She’s my baby after all.

I must mention how my daughter chose her outfit that day.  Most times I pick out her outfits, but sometimes she wants to.  She loves that fuschia tutu.  So, the colour combo wasn’t the greatest, I still like that she’s asserting her independence.  🙂

I love fall.  The colours are so beautiful.  So, in honour of autumn, here’s a quote I found, which I like:

“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and Autumn was awakened.” (Raquel Franco)

I love shooting outdoor natural light portraits.  I love using nature as a beautiful backdrop for my portrait photography.  If you love incorporating landscapes into your portraits, get a hold of me to book your portrait session.  I shoot family photos, children’s portraits, maternity and engagement photos outside.  I also love shooting outdoor weddings.

Puppy Dog First Birthday Cake Smash Photo Session

Puppy Dog First Birthday Cake Smash Photo Session

Gatineau Cake Smash Photographer

My, oh, my…what can I say.  I shot a first ever for a particular photo session.  I shot my puppy dog first birthday cake smash photo session.  He just turned one yesterday and I wanted to try to shoot a cake smash photo session with him.  I found several dog cake recipes on good ol’ Pinterest.  I decided on a mini dog birthday cake recipe from The Almond Eater’s blog.  The only change I made to the recipe was that I put much less honey it it than the 1/3 cup that was required in the recipe.  I just didn’t want him to have much sugar in order to save his teeth.  I also added some dog treats to the top of the cake.

Anyway, my daughter and I had fun making the cake together.  She’s almost six years old and wants to help with making food.  I figured that this was an easy recipe that she could help me with.  After the small cakes were baked, I pinched off a few bits of the cake and fed them to the dog to make sure that he liked it.  He liked it very much.

So, my dog has this strange phobia of plates and bowls other than his own.  Even when we bought him new eating dishes, it took him a long time before he would even eat/drink out of them.  It was the same thing with our own dishes, letting him lick the leftovers.  He wanted the food, but was too freaked out by the dishes.

Well, I had the cake on a mini pedestal and it totally freaked him out.  He was scared to get too close to it.  We let him lick some of the icing off of our fingers so that he’d get a taste for it and want more.  Finally, when he wanted to eat the cake, he was facing with his butt towards the camera and light. It was hard to try and get him to turn around and eat behind the cake without him getting all freaked out.

My husband wanted nothing to do with the photo session (or any other photo session for that matter.)   But I begged him to help the dog get into the correct sitting position behind the cake.  Finally, Puppy sat (reluctantly) behind the cake.  He began to smell the cake, lick the icing and then he was a happy little puppy after that.  He still tended to move around the cake so that he butt was facing the light and the camera.  However, thanks to my hubby, he brought him around again for the photo shoot.  The entire photo shoot was certainly no more than about 8-10 minutes, if that.  But at least I was able to get some really cute photos of him enjoying his birthday cake.

Mosaicultures Canada 150

Mosaicultures Canada 150

Ottawa Gatineau Photographer

On the same day that my daughter and I went to see La Machine, we visited Mosaicultures Canada 150 exhibition in Gatineau, QC.  Ever since I heard about the exhibit, I’ve wanted to see the sculptures.  The exhibit is at Jaques-Cartier Park (285 Laurier St., Gatineau) until October 15, 2017.  The hours are 10:00 am- 7:00 pm.  And the best part is that it’s FREE!  If you’re in need of some ideas of where to take your family, visit Mosaïcultures.  You won’t regret it.mosaicanada-2017-ottawa150-tourism-black-lamb-photography-4mosaicanada-2017-ottawa150-tourism-black-lamb-photography-2mosaicanada-2017-ottawa150-tourism-black-lamb-photography-7

MosaïCanada is the biggest horticultural event in Canada and it’s right here in the Gatineau/Hull area.  According to the Gatineau2017 website, the theme of the Gatineau exhibit reflects 150 years of history, values, culture and arts in Canada, represented by 40 different arrangements.

Both my daughter and myself loved all of the beautiful plant sculptures.  They are living works of art.  The colours and uses of different types of flowers and grasses were executed beautifully.  I mean, grass was used to make animal fur and hair!  How cool is that?!?!?  I was totally blown away by the workmanship of these horticulture sculptures.  I’m so thankful that I brought my camera with me to take some photos of some of the exhibits.  Here’s just a few photos of some of the 30+ sculptures on display.

My favourite displays were: Anne of Green Gables, complete with a train station and train!  I also loved the Chinese displays, the Inukshuk, the bison. Finally, the pièce de résistance, Mother Earth was as beautiful as what I had seen in photos.

Info about Mosaïcultures Canada 150

In conclusion, I highly recommend for anyone in the Ottawa/Gatineau region, as well as tourists, to make a stop to visit this exhibit.  You won’t regret it.  And most of all, it will be a wonderful memory of Canada’s 150th year.  You can find more info about MosaïCanada by visiting their website.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I hope that everyone is enjoying their long weekend.  Like all of the other kids, my daughter had Friday off, so with today and Friday she had an extra long weekend.  We went shopping for some new school clothes.  We also got a new lunchbox for her for school.  It was nice to be with her.  She started kindergarten this year.  So, since she’s been in school, we’ve spent less time together.

happy thanksgiving everyone

Usually, my family and I make a trek to visit my family and spend the thanksgiving weekend with them.  However, I just didn’t feel to make the 4.5 hour drive.  My daughter hates being in the car that long and my husband doesn’t like driving so far.  So, we decided to have thanksgiving at our house today.  We invited my stepsons over for dinner.  One was working, so the other one came over.  It was nice to see him and I was happy that he and my husband could spend some time together.

Fall is my favourite time of year.  It’s usually warm, but not hot and humid, like the summer.  It’s also not super cold and snowy, like winter.  And the leaves are so beautiful.  Autumn is such a lovely time of year to have portraits taken.  Contact me to book your fall photo session.  Hurry up, before it’s too late!

You can view some of my fall photo sessions from last autumn:
