Britannia Yacht Club Wedding

Josh & Laurissa’s Britannia Yacht Club Wedding

I’ve been looking forward to shooting Josh & Laurissa’s Britannia Yacht Club wedding since we first met and talked about their wedding plans. I love when couples bring sentimental notes into their wedding plans. These guys have a great little story. They had their first date at Britannia Yacht Club, so it was only fitting to come full circle and tie the knot at Britannia too.

The weather forecast for their wedding day had been threatening a thunder storm for several days, due to a severe heat wave. And let me tell you, it was quite the scorcher. However, we were blessed that it didn’t rain at all. Yay! They had sun with some clouds and a nice breeze coming off the water. It was such a pretty scene by the water, with the boats going by and the birds flying above.

It was hot the entire day and everyone was trying to keep cool. I must mention how nice Laurissa’s mom was with Michelle and I. She made sure that we stayed hydrated in the heat by bringing us drinks. And later on she told me to make sure to drink and eat. If she’s like that with complete strangers, I can only imagine how much of a wonderful mom she was and is to her children and family.

I liked at the end when Josh and other family members dressed up in tuxedo t-shirts. It was awesome. So they were free to let loose on the dance floor and still be in their suits. Wink. Wink.

Josh and Laurissa, it was a pleasure to shoot your wedding photos. You both looked fabulous and it was a truly beautiful day. Good luck in all of your future adventures as husband and wife. 🙂

Ottawa Arboretum Maternity Photos

Ottawa Arboretum Maternity Photos

Last week I shot some Ottawa arboretum maternity photos with this cute little family. They’re expecting their second child in a month. Their daughter wasn’t too keen on having her photos taken, so she spent most of the time with her grandparents running around everywhere.

It was such a gorgeous summer evening. Honestly, the light was fantastic and it wasn’t too hot or humid. Hopefully, this summer will provide more nights like that. I got some really nice shots of them.

I must mention one thing about their cute little daughter. She definitely marches to the beat of her own drum. She wouldn’t do ANYTHING she didn’t want to do. She’s a girl boss, for sure. One thing that I thought was hilarious is that she loves, loves, loves dental floss. Seriously. Grandma even pulled some out of her purse to give to her to play with. When she got it, she immediately began to floss her teeth. This two-year-old is already into dental hygene. Perhaps she’ll be a future dentist or hygenist. That was a first for me at a photo shoot–someone flossing their teeth. Ha! Ha!

Book your photo session today

Outdoor maternity photo shoots are one of my favourite things to photograph. I think it’s because I like photographing couples. Hence, why I also love shooting engagement and wedding photography.

If you’re looking for a maternity photographer, I’d really love to hear from you. Contact me to schedule your photo session. I also shoot liefstyle newborn photos right in your home. There’s no stress of having to leave the house when you’ve just had a baby–especially if you’ve had a c-section. Here’s an example of my lifestyle newborn photography.

If you like what you see, you can take a look at some other maternity photo sessions that I’ve shot:

Restaurant 18 Wedding

Sean & Kat’s Restaurant 18 Wedding

I’ve been looking forward to shooting Sean and Kat’s Restaurant 18 wedding for quite some time now. When I heard of their vision (well, Kat’s at least) for an art deco inspired wedding I was beyond thrilled about the concept. So, I’ve been patiently waiting to see how it all turned out. And I’m pleased to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Just check out how gorgeous their wedding day was.

First of all, Kat looked stunning. Her wedding dress was phenomenal. I also liked the bridesmaids’ outfits. Not to be outdone (well, only a little bit), Sean and the guys looked fabulous too. Honestly, everyone looked amazing.

For several days before the wedding, the weather forecast was calling for a thunder storm. However, we were blessed that the rains held off until the end of the day, so we were able to shoot outdoors. Yay! And even after it rained, we were able to go outside again and take a few more photos.

The reception was great. It was good food, good music and good people with a pretty venue. And being in the byward market is a bonus. All in all, everyone had a blast at Sean and Kat’s wedding.

Congratulations Sean and Kat. May you enjoy married life and your upcoming world travels together. Finally, thanks so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day. It was a pleasure working with the both of you. 🙂

Ornamental Gardens Maternity Photos

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Maternity Photos

Last week I shot Robyn and Ryan’s ornamental gardens maternity photos at the Experimental farm in Ottawa. We’ve been having a heat wave, but that night was quite nice. Slightly humid, but not too hot. And the sun was peaking through the cloud coverage quite a bit.

The ornamental gardens are so pretty as a backdrop for portraits. There’s so many different kinds of flowers and a plethora of colour. Each step we took gave new flowers to use for the background.

“A baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty.” (Unknown)

ornamental-gardens-maternity-photos-ottawa-newborn-baby-photographers

I always tell my clients to bring some small props for their maternity session. Whether it be your baby’s ultrasound or some little booties, these small props always make the photos for meaningful. Two of the props that Robyn and Ryan brought for their maternity session were some purple and white baby booties and mitts that were Ryan’s when he was a baby. I can’t remember exactly who he had said made them for him, but I think it was one of his grandmothers. That is so precious that their child will be able to wear the same booties and mittens that his/her daddy wore as a baby.

Mackenzie King Estate Maternity Photos

Mackenzie King Estate Maternity Photos

This week I shot some Mackenzie King Estate maternity photos with these two lovely people. It was a beautiful day. I’m so glad that it cooled down from this past weekend’s stifling heat wave! The sun was shining. It was about 25°C, which was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening to do the photo shoot.

Nora and Gavin were awesome to work with. They followed my directions really well, even when I was being kind of vague. I’m super happy with how their photo session turned out–especially near the end of their session. My goodness, that dreamy light! I love shooting during golden hour. It’s always ends up looking so beautiful. And Gatineau park is always such a pretty spot to take photos. I wish all the best to the two of you with your baby. 🙂

“If I am thinking correctly,” said Pooh, “a new baby is probably, undoubtedly the grandest gift that could ever be.” (A.A. Milne)

Jason and Erica’s Wedding Anniversary

Jason and Erica’s Wedding Anniversary

Ottawa Wedding Photographers

Hi there. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Today is Jason and Erica’s wedding anniversary. They got married exactly one year ago today at the beautiful Billings Estate in Ottawa. Congratutions! In  honour of their one year anniversary, I thought I would repost some of their wedding photos.

“All my life I thought that the story was over when the hero and heroine were safely engaged — after all, what’s good enough for Jane Austen ought to be good enough for anyone. But it’s a lie. The story is about to begin, and every day will be a new piece of the plot.” (The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer)
