Gatineau Cake Smash Photography

Gatineau Cake Smash Photography

One year baby cake smash | Gatineau Baby Photographers

I was so excited to do my daughter’s one year cake smash photo session.  A lot of planning went into the details.  I don’t know why, but I associate the colour lilac/mauve with my daughter, so I wanted to incorporate it into my photo shoot.  Thimble Cakes in Ottawa was very accommodating to my specific requests about the smash cake.  I wanted the smash cake decorated with rosettes in butter cream icing.  Being conscious of my baby’s health, I didn’t want any sugar in the cake or icing and I certainly didn’t want any artificial sweeteners.  The exact wording in my e-mail to Wendy was,

“Are you able to do a chocolate cake with lilac coloured icing, but still sugar free?  And by sugar free, what do you use to sweeten it?  I want a natural sweetener—not any artificial sweeteners like sucralose, splenda, aspartame, saccharine or acesulfame potassium.  I also do not want her eating fructose or corn sweeteners.  Sorry that I’m so picky.  I just don’t want my one-year-old eating that kind of stuff.” 

That’s kind of a tall order, but Wendy at Thimble Cakes wrote back,  “Not a problem at all to make that pretty cake.  We use agave and xylitol.  Both are all natural sweeteners.  We don’t like artificial around here either!”    Yay!  I was happy to hear that they could do it and without sugar to boot!  That totally made my day.  I was so happy when I saw the smash cake.  It was so beautiful.

My daughter and her cake smash

I must admit that my daughter was really not into doing this cake smash photo shoot.  She hated getting the icing on her.  It took a little coaxing, but in the end she was ok with it.

If you’re interested in doing a cake smash photo session for your baby, I would love to hear from you.  I shoot cake smash photo sessions in my home in L’Ange Gardien, QC (just east of Gatineau).  You can check out more of my cake smash photography on my Little Lamb Photography website.  You can also check out my daughter’s Two year old cake smash and her three year old cake smash photo shoots (her request for the 3 year cake smash–not what I normally do).

Gatineau Maternity Photography Sneak Peek

Gatineau Maternity Photographer

I’m excited to share this Gatineau maternity photography sneak peek, which was shot several weeks ago.  They turned out better than I had hoped.  The field of Queen Anne’s Lace was so gorgeous.  The lighting was pretty.  Everything went well.  Hence, I’m SO excited to show more soon.

Perhaps you’re currently pregnant.  Contact me today to book your maternity session.  I would love to create beautiful photographic art of you and your partner.  My maternity photo sessions include high resolution digital files, so that you can make prints for yourselves and loved ones.  I recommend for women to schedule their maternity photo shoot for when they’re between 28-32 weeks pregnant.  This leaves some cushioning in case baby decides to come early, and before you won’t feel up to having your photos taken when your belly gets bigger.

I highly recommend for my clients to include their partner in their pregnancy photo shoot.  Whether by yourself or with your partner, I want to help you look your absolute best for your portraits. First of all, you’ll be hanging these cherished moments on the walls of your home.  Secondly, what mother-to-be shouldn’t look like the goddess of life that she is?  If you’re unsure of what to wear or how to look for your maternity photography session, you can read my blog post, What to wear for Maternity Photos.  I also give extra pointers to any pregnancy clients who book their maternity session with me.  I’m on your side to look your best.  🙂

Finally, here’s a pregnancy quote by Elizabeth Stone for your enjoyment: “Making a decision to have a child–it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”

Billings Estate Wedding Photos Ottawa Ontario

Billings Estate Wedding Photos Ottawa Ontario

Ottawa Wedding Photographer

Today is Christian and Jordan’s first wedding anniversary.  So, I wanted to re-post their Billings Estate wedding photos in Ottawa Ontario.  I was so happy that they decided to do a first look before they got married.  We did that at the Ottawa Arboretum.  First of all, it was my first time shooting a first look.  However, the photos turned out beautifully.  Jordan looked beautiful in her simple wedding dress, while Christian looked handsome in his suit.  Most noteworthy was the look on their faces; seeing each other in their wedding clothes was priceless.  The wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Billings Estate in Ottawa.  What a pretty wedding location.  Congratulations Christian and Jordan.  Everything turned out beautifully.  Most of all, I’m very happy that the two of you found happiness in each other.

Engagement Photography

Check out Christian and Jordan’s Ottawa engagement photos.  I highly recommend all couples to do engagement portraits with their wedding photographer.  You may be wondering why.  Because you get some pretty photos to display at your wedding reception.  And you and your photographer will get to know each other better before the big day.

If you’re getting married, contact me.  I would love to be your wedding photographer.  You can check out more of my wedding photography.

Monterey Hotel Wedding Photos Ottawa Ontario

Duane + Michelle’s Monterey Hotel Wedding Photos Ottawa

Ottawa Wedding Photographer

Today is Duane and Michelle’s first year anniversary, so I wanted to wish them a very happy anniversary.  What a special year it was for them–especially with the addition of their little one who was born earlier this year.  In celebration of their anniversary, I decided to repost Duane + Michelle’s Monterey Hotel wedding photos in Ottawa.

It was a beautiful sunny summer day.  They both looked amazing.  Michelle’s wedding dress was gorgeous and so were her flowers.  I love hydrangeas.   The added bonus was that there were also hydrangea bushes on the hotel grounds.

I loved the rustic wedding touches, such as the cupcake stand and table numbers.  Most noteworthy is that Michelle’s father made those items.  Of course, he had some help from Michelle who burned the numbers on the table number signs.  I love when couples add some DIY touches to their wedding.

I’m happy to have been a part of their wedding day.  I love shooting weddings, although they’re a lot of work.  You see, I love how everyone is happy.  Are you getting married? Perhaps you’re currently looking for an Ottawa wedding photographer.  Drop me a line.  I would be happy to meet with you and hear about your wedding plans.  Most of all, I’d be happy to create the best photos of your wedding day.  Contact me today.

Portrait Photography

Perhaps you’re not getting married.  No problem.  I also shoot maternity photos, newborn photography, family photos, child photography and cake smash photos.  Check out my portrait website, Little Lamb Photography.  Finally, Duane and Michelle’s wedding was featured on RSVP Events‘ blog.  Check it out.
