Documenting Memories Being Made

Documenting Memories Being Made

Ottawa Event Photographer

As a photographer, I’m here to help by documenting memories being made.  It could be memories from a wedding or party.  It could be memories with family or friends.  Whatever event you choose to have photos taken at, I will be there to document your event as it unfolds.

Documenting Memories Being Made

Perhaps your child is having a special birthday party.  Maybe it’s your baby’s first birthday.  Yay for first birthdays.  I would document the party as it unfolds, taking pictures of everyone having fun and laughing.  And don’t you worry about those details you painstakingly made sure happened.  I will happily take photos of the decorations, the food and most importantly everyone who attends.

“All these fragments of memory…so we can retreat from the grand story and stumble accidentally upon a luxury, one of those underground pools where we can sit still.  Those moments, those few pages in a book we go back and forth over.”

(Michael Ondaatje, In the Skin of a Lion)

Ottawa-Gatineau Casual Home Newborn Photos

Ottawa-Gatineau Casual Home Newborn Photos

Ottawa Baby Photographers

Take a look at this sweet little baby girl.  Isn’t she adorable?  I shot her Ottawa-Gatineau casual home newborn photos a couple of weeks ago.  She was born about a month early, so we waited until she was about a month old before doing her newborn photos.  Even at one month old, this baby girl was a dream to photograph.  She was so easy going.  So easy to manage.  Didn’t try to put up a fit like some babies.  And she slept very well.  Awesome!

I must mention that this newborn baby girl is the apple of her daddy’s eye.  It was really nice to see her proud papa with his little princess.  She is well loved, that is certain.  I hope that you enjoy the lifestyle newborn photos with this adorable little family.  You can also check out their outdoor winter maternity photos in the woods before their little princess was born.

Gatineau Home Newborn Photo Sneak Peek

Gatineau Home Newborn Photo Sneak Peek

Ottawa Baby Photographers

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful newborn baby girl’s photos.  So, I just wanted to show the Gatineau home newborn photo sneak peek.  Her baby photo session went really well.  I’m currently working on the photos.  I can’t wait to show more photos from her newborn session.  I’ll be sure to post more baby photos soon!

Gatineau Home Newborn Photo Sneak Peek

In the meantime, I wanted to know if you’re in need of a newborn photographer.  If so, I’d love to hear from you!  I shoot newborn baby photos in the comfort of your own home.  Since I’m a natural light photographer, I just need a room or two with a big window to allow the sunlight in.  Perhaps you’re still pregnant.  Great!  I adore shooting maternity photo sessions too!  I shoot outdoor pregnancy photos in and around Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec.  Nature is always a beautiful backdrop for portrait sessions.  With that said, I’d love to create beautiful maternity photos for you and your partner.

I can shoot portrait sessions in: Ottawa, Gatineau, Kanata, Stittsville, Nepean, Barrhaven, Orleans, Cumberland, Clarence, Rockland, Hull, Aylmer, Chelsea, Cantley, Wakefield, L’Ange-Gardien, Masson-Angers, Buckingham.  Please note that locations outside of Ottawa or Gatineau may have an additional fee to accommodate the extra gas and travel time.

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone

Happy Easter weekend everyone!  I’ll be spending time with my in-laws.  However, I wanted to make an effort to wish everyone a happy Easter weekend.  For myself and my family, Easter isn’t about the Easter bunny.  Instead, it’s a reminder of an important moment in human history–the greatest sacrifice ever.  And also, the resurrection or our Lord, Jesus Christ.  I`m a devout Christian and love the Lord dearly.  I`m so thankful for Jesus` sacrifice for all of us.  Because of him, we can all live again.

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone

I know that this post isn’t photography related, but I still wanted to acknowledge my love for my Lord and God.  Again, have a great long weekend.  Be safe and spend time with your family.  🙂

5 Things to ask a wedding photographer before booking

5 Things to ask a wedding photographer before booking

Ottawa Wedding Photographer

Asking questions is never a stupid thing.  It’s a great way to be as informed as possible in making important decisions.  Wedding photography is a pricey investment  for most people.  So, before you commit to a big chunk of change, ask questions.  I’ve written about 5 things to ask a wedding photographer before booking them:

5 Things to ask a wedding photographer before booking

 

1. Equipment:

What kind of equipment do they use?  Do they actually use a professional grade digital SLR?  Or, do they use an amateur camera with lens kit?  I’m a Nikon girl myself, but Canon is just as amazing.

2. Computer Software:

Does the wedding photographer use professional computer software such as Photoshop, Lightroom or Portrait Professional?  Even if they have the software, does their portfolio show they actually know how to use it?  Will they take the time to do proper post production on your cherished wedding photos?  Or, are they *shoot and burn photographers? (*they shoot photos, download them onto their computer and then burn onto a DVD/USB and give to you without colour correcting or removing blemishes, etc.).

3. Photography Contract:

Does the wedding photographer have a contract?  If they don’t have a contract, head for the hills!  You should sign an agreement stating what you will pay and what you will be getting (including number of photography hours, what other products you will receive, etc.).  Before signing the contract, go over it in full.  Once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid, whatever is on the signed contract is the full agreement between you and your photographer.

4. Will the photographer you  are interviewing be the actual photographer at your wedding? 

Sometimes photography studios will book more than one wedding on the same day.  So, they end up hiring other photographers to shoot those weddings.  If the photographer you are interviewing will not be your photographer for your actual wedding, ask to interview the photographer who will be shooting your wedding.  You want to get a feel to see if you will connect with that person.  Why?  Because there could be a personality clash or their vision isn’t what you had envisioned.  You also want to see the actual portfolio of the associate photographer to see if their style matches what you want.  Years ago my cousin hired a wedding studio based on their portfolio.  However, it was the portfolio of the owner, but he didn’t shoot the wedding.  He hired another photographer to shoot the wedding, but the other photographer didn’t have the same style as the studio owner.  So, my cousin and his wife hated their wedding photos.

5. References: 

If you are still not 100% about a photographer, you can ask to communicate with several of their past wedding clients so that you can ask them about their own experience with the photographer.  If they are unwilling to give you references to check, ask yourself why they don’t want to offer that important insight.  You might want to reconsider if that is the case.

Are you newly engaged?  Perhaps you’re looking for a wedding photographer.  Contact me for a wedding photography consultation.  Or contact me to book an engagement photo session.
