Meaningful Christmas Presents That Keep Giving

Ottawa Portrait Photographer | Little Lamb Photography

Are you looking for a meaningful Christmas present to give to a loved one?  Why not give a meaningful Christmas present that keeps on giving.  You can give a gift certificate to that special someone that can be applied towards a portrait session in Ottawa, ON or Gatineau, QC.  The gift certificate never expires and whatever dollar amount you’ve purchased can be applied towards any portrait session that Little Lamb Photography offers at the time it is used.  I currently offer portrait sessions for:

  • Maternity Photography
  • Cake Smash Photography
  • Family Photos
  • Couples Portraits
  • Children’s Portraits
  • Baby Portraits

The amount that the gift certificate is worth is up to you, the purchaser.  It can be in any amount that you choose.   This could be a great office gift for the boss, with everyone in the office chipping in to cover the cost of an entire portrait session.  Another idea is for all adult kids to chip in towards a gift certificate for their parents for a family portrait session with those adult kids in the photo session too.  Or how about several women chipping in to cover the cost of a smash cake or newborn session as a unique baby shower gift.  There are lots of creative ways you can choose to pitch in to cover the cost of an entire portrait session.  The possibilities are endless.  Be creative.  🙂

New Branding

New Branding

Ottawa Wedding Photographer | Black Lamb Photography

I’m so excited to introduce my new branding for my wedding photography website.  I’ve been thinking about changing my branding for the last few months, so I have been looking online for some ideas.  I like the current trend of water colour.  I also like the idea of adding flowers, since they play a part in the wedding day.   I searched on various websites looking for a suitable logo, but there was always something missing from what I wanted.  So, I decided to take the aspects of things that I loved from various logo ideas and came up with my new logo.  Social media takes on different shapes of profile photos, so I wanted a rectangle and square version of the logo.  I hope that everyone like the new look.  🙂

4 Things to do if it’s raining on your wedding day

4 Things to do if it’s raining on your wedding day

It’s raining!  What to expect if rain ruins your wedding day photography plans.  As a photographer, I always hope for the best weather conditions (ie. no rain) for wedding photos, since you cannot reschedule a wedding.  However, the show must go on no matter what the weather is like, so you will still be posing for wedding photos in the sunshine or rain.  I know that most couples hope and pray that it won’t rain on their wedding day and it may be disappointing if it does actually rain on your wedding day.  However, here are 4 things you can do to make lemonade out of your rainy wedding day:

1)  Plan B:  I tell my couples when planning for their wedding photos to ALWAYS have a plan B.  This especially goes for couples who plan on getting married outside.  If you decide that you want to involve nature in your ceremony plans, you should have a tent set up just in case it starts pouring cats and dogs.  Or, you could have a canopy set up in which the bride and groom and officiant will be standing under in case it’s raining lightly.  Just be sure to tell your guests to bring umbrellas if you don’t end up having a tent set up.

You can also book a local museum for your backup plan in case you need to take your formal photos indoors.  Depending on the setup, you can use your ceremony or reception venue as the backdrop of your family and wedding party portraits.

2)  Prepare Your Guests:  This brings me to my next tip.  Send ‘rain cards’ with your wedding invitations to let guests know what your rain plans are.  Perhaps the ceremony location will be different.  Ask them to give you their cell phone numbers so that you can do a mass text message to all of your guests to let them know if you’re moving to plan B on the wedding day.  Or you could text them to bring their own umbrella if you decide to still have an outdoor wedding.

3)  Embrace the rain:  Unless it’s raining cats and dogs, I highly suggest for couples to embrace the rain–especially if it’s just light rain.  Just be sure to have umbrellas and the bride should have rubber boots to wear under her dress so as not to ruin her wedding shoes.  The bridesmaids can also have rubber boots to wear and then change into their shoes at the reception.

I do bring clean umbrellas with me, just in case it rains so that the bride and groom as well as the wedding party will be able to stay dry during their outdoor photo shoot.

4)  Don’t Stress:  So what if it rains on your wedding day.  Rain is considered good luck.  Plus, grass and foliage look more vibrant in colour when they’re wet.  Don’t sweat it and just enjoy your day and focus on the real reason why you’re getting married.  🙂

Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Wedding Ideas Copy

Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Wedding Ideas

Ottawa Wedding Photographer | Black Lamb Photography

I’ve been an Ottawa wedding photographer since 2008 and have seen my fair share of weddings and wedding details.  With that said, I want to help you stay with tradition and give you something old, new, borrowed and blue wedding ideas.

Something Old:  Many brides choose to include sentimental items from a parent, grandparent or someone close to them in their wedding.  This may include mom’s veil, grandmother’s wedding dress, heirloom jewellery, a photo or cake topper.  A lot of brides are also opting to wear shoes that they already have, instead of purchasing white shoes just for the wedding.

Something New:  For most brides, you’ll have this covered with your wedding dress and wedding ring.  However, you can also purchase a new veil, garter, shoes, jewellery, etc.ideas-for-something-blue-for-weddings-ottawa-photographer-black-lamb-photography-NEW

Something Borrowed:  When I got married, I borrowed my friend’s antique necklace.  One of my brides borrowed her friend’s wedding dress!  Be creative with what you borrow.  It could be as simple as borrowing jewellery or a purse.  Just make sure to return it in as good condition as you received it.ideas-for-something-blue-for-weddings-ottawa-photographer-black-lamb-photography-BORROWED-1

Something Blue:  There’s plenty of blue touches you can add to your wedding.  The bride could wear blue shoes, nail polish, garter, underwear or jewellery or have blue flowers in her bouquet.  The groom could wear blue socks, tie, vest, cuff links or boutonniere.  You can also add blue touches to your wedding decorations or cake.
