Dows Lake Winter Maternity Photo Session

Dows Lake Winter Maternity Photo Session

Ottawa Maternity Photographers

Last week I had the pleasure to shoot a Dows Lake winter maternity photo session with this awesome couple.  The weather forecast said that the temperature would be a balmy -2°C.  However, with the wind chill factor, it was about -13°C, which was quite chilly.  However, these guys were troopers.  Not only did they pose for their maternity photo session without their coats, but they did it with smiles on their faces.  They were so great to work with, which made my job a lot easier and enjoyable.

The day we shot their maternity photo session was the day of their wedding anniversary.  And the cute thing was that they chose Dow’s Lake as the location for their maternity photo shoot because it’s where they got married.  How swoon worthy is that?

I must mention a bitter-sweet fact.  When they booked their session a few months ago, they had asked if their dog, Heidi, could be included in the shot.  Of course, I’d be happy to shoot portraits of them with their beloved pet.  Sadly she passed away recently.  So, they brought her dog collar to be included in the shoot in memory of sweet Heidi.  You can see her heart shaped name tag pinned to his shirt in the photos.  I was more than happy to include a closeup of them holding Heidi’s name tag/collar for a belly closeup.  It’s sad that Heidi couldn’t be in their maternity shoot, but I’m happy for them that they could still have a part of her with them in their photos.

Ottawa In Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session

Ottawa In Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session

Ottawa Newborn Baby Photographers

Last week I shot an Ottawa in home lifestyle newborn photography session.  As a natural light photographer, I was happy about the light that day.  It was a beautiful sunny day, which made for light and airy photos.

I must mention how beautiful their renovated home was.  From the moment you walk into their home, it’s gorgeous.  Just take a look at the nursery.  Mama painted the gorgeous mural, which matches the pretty throw pillows on the window seat.  And the master bedroom is beautiful with it’s neutral tones.  Can I just mention how much I love their navy blue head board?  It made the perfect backdrop for some of their portraits.

And can I also mention how much I love it when newborn babies have lots of hair?  This little girl had plenty of brown hair.  So cute!  She a dream to photograph.  She didn’t squirm too much and once she slept, I could move her around quite a bit without waking her.  That made it so much easier to photograph.  This photo session was a pleasure to shoot and I’m happy with how the photos turned out.  What a cute little family.

Butterfly Box Ottawa-Gatineau

Butterfly Box Ottawa-Gatineau

This is a bit of a difficult topic to write about.  I’m talking about the loss of a child–either through a miscarriage or when the child is young.  There are so many grieving parents out there–many of whom we’re not aware that they’ve suffered the loss of a child.  I don’t know why, but there’s a stigma about child loss.  I guess it’s because it’s such a difficult topic that most people don’t want to talk about it.  However, by ignoring it, the people who have experienced the loss of a child suffer in silence.  That’s where butterfly boxes come into play.  According to the Mom Friends’ website, the butterfly boxes have two lasting impacts:

  1. Ensure bereaved families are acknowledged and supported in their loss by the community.
  2. Grow awareness and address stigma around pregnancy and infant loss through public awareness building in card-writing and storytelling projects

Have you suffered from a miscarriage of the loss of a young child?  Maybe you know of a close friend or family member who has.  Chances are that you or they have probably suffered in silence.  Reach out for some help and order a butterfly box.  If you want to know more about Butterfly Boxes, go to Mom Friends‘ website.

How to Show Your Support In Other Ways

Perhaps you’ve never experienced infant loss, but know of someone who has.  Maybe you want to help, but don’t know how to go about it.  You can show your support by taking part in the Butterfly Run.  You can either volunteer your time to help or you can run or walk in the race.  Either way, you’re helping tremendously.  They’ve tentatively set a date for the Ottawa-Gatineau butterfly run on Saturday October 13th, 2018.  You can find more info on their website: www.butterflyrun.ca

Ottawa Snowy Forest Maternity Photo Session

Ottawa Snowy Forest Maternity Photo Session

Ottawa Pregnancy Photographers

A few weeks ago I shot an Ottawa snowy forest maternity photo session of this adorable couple.  They’re expecting their first child this spring–a little girl.  When I left my home, it was -17 °C, so I put on my snow pants and hoped for the best on this shoot.  However, as I drove towards Ottawa, it started to get warmer and warmer.  By the time I reached the location, it had risen to -7 °C.  It actually warmed up 10 degrees!  I couldn’t believe it!   That made it much easier to shoot outside in winter.

These guys were awesome to photograph.  They were real sports and did everything that I asked them to do.  We shot at a couple of different locations to get some variety in backdrops.  I look forward to meeting this little girl when she arrives in the world.  I’m also looking forward to shooting their wedding in September.  So many photo sessions for these guys over the next seven months.  It’s going to be great.
