This little girl’s mom made her pretty pink giant cupcake.  Such talent!  I have mentioned before that during cake smash photos, babies will either start crying and want nothing to do with the cake, or they will embrace the sugary goodness.  This little girl was pretty content to try out cake for the first time.  She started off a little apprehensive, slowly touching the cake and then tasting it.  After that, she was perfectly fine with the cake and eating it, which made for fun smash the cake photos.

If you’re interested in booking a cake smash photo session for your baby (one year or two year cake smash), contact me and we can discuss the details.  I shoot cake smash photo sessions in my home in L’Ange Gardien, QC (just 20 minutes east of Gatineau).  You can check out more of my cake smash photos on my portrait website, Little Lamb Photography.

UPDATE:  This smash the cake photo session was featured on Your Theme Party blog.

Here is my favourite newborn photo from this particular newborn session.  When I first arrived at this family’s home, I noticed all of the beautiful African art that they had.  You see, this couple lived and worked in Africa for a few years before returning home to Canada.  Seeing the art and hearing their story, I knew that I had to incorporate these things into at least one of the baby portraits in order to make it more personal as well as it’s so darn cool looking.  Enjoy.

I would love to photograph your baby’s newborn photos.  Contact me today.  For those who are not in need of a newborn photographer, I also shoot wedding photography, maternity photography, cake smash photos and family photos.

Summer Maternity Photos Ottawa Ontario

Summer Maternity Photos Ottawa Ontario | Ottawa Maternity Photographer

Here are some photos from one of my favourite summer maternity photo sessions in Ottawa Ontario.  The weather was gorgeous.  And this couple put a lot of effort into their dress and grooming.  A special thanks goes out to Natasha Ardovini from Red Carpet Glamour.  She did the makeup and hair for this particular photo shoot.  If you really don’t know what to wear for your maternity photos, please take a look at my blog post, What to Wear for Maternity Photos.  You can also check out some maternity wardrobe inspiration on my Pinterest board.

If you’re looking for a maternity photographer, contact me to book your maternity photo session.  I love shooting maternity portraits.  The best time to do a maternity photo session is when you are between 28-32 weeks pregnant.   It may sound a little strange to have your photos taken so early in your pregnancy.  However, I’ve  had women who have given birth 1-14 days after their photo shoot.  When baby is ready to come, there’s no stopping him/her.  I don’t want anyone to miss out on having beautiful maternity portraits to cherish.  So book your portrait session the earlier the better.   Your partner is welcome and encouraged to be in the photo shoot with you as it makes the photos more meaningful.

Take a look at some of my other maternity photography:

    Such pretty maternity photos!

Spring Maternity Photos Ottawa Arboretum

Spring Maternity Photos Ottawa Arboretum  | Ottawa Maternity Photographer

This past May I photographed some spring maternity photos at the Ottawa Arboretum and the Experimental Farm.  This particular couple are good friends of mine. I’m so happy for them as this is their first baby. If you haven’t visited the Arboretum or the Experimental Farm in the spring, you are truly missing out. It’s a real treat to drive up Prince of Wales Dr. during that time and see candy floss trees lining the streets.

Although were were starting to get eaten alive by the mosquitoes, I was able to take some beautiful maternity photos of them. I know that they and their families will cherish them for years to come. I highly recommend for all pregnant women to have professional maternity photos taken while they’re pregnant. Since pregnancy only lasts a short time, you should savour the memories by having beautiful portraits to look back on over the years.

For anyone wanting to do maternity photos, contact me. I LOVE shooting maternity portraits. The best time to do a maternity photo session is when you are between 28-32 weeks pregnant. Your partner is welcome and encouraged to be in the photo shoot with you as it makes the photos more meaningful. For anyone who doesn’t really know what to wear for their maternity photos, I recommend for you to read by blog post about What to Wear for Maternity Photos.

You can check out their son’s newborn photos. He’s a handsome little baby, that’s for sure. In the meantime, I wanted to leave this quote about pregnancy that is very fitting for this spring maternity photo shoot: “The life of a mother is the life of a child.  You are two blossoms on a single branch.”  (Quote by: Karen Maezen Miller)

    Spring is always so pretty. You did a great job with her photos.

Extended Family Photos at the Ottawa Arboretum

Here are some extended family photos that I shot of a great family living in Ottawa as well as their extended family visiting from Vancouver Island.  It was awesome to do three generations of family during one photo shoot.  We took the photos at the ever gorgeous arboretum in front of some gorgeous weeping willows (probably my favourite tree).

Fun times photographing the kids because I had the adults behind me helping out.  There were jumping around everywhere and making silly faces in order to get the kids to smile, which must have been quite entertaining for the other people walking through the arboretum.

Even without the adults jumping around, the kids were so rambunctious and full of energy.  I brought some fun moustache props to use at the shoot.  The children loved the moustaches on a stick and it was a hoot to get some fun shots of them playing around with them.  Even the adults got in on the moustache action, which made for some really fun shots.

If you are thinking about having your family photos taken, contact me.  I’d love to capture some great shots of your family.  I also do Ottawa wedding photography, engagement photos, maternity photos, newborn baby photos and cake smash photos.  I hope to hear from you soon.

One Year Cake Smash | Gatineau Cake Smash Photographers

Here are some photos of a little man who LOVED his cake smash session.  I must admit that although it’s a lot of work to decorate and then cleanup, I absolutely LOVE shooting baby cake smash photos.  I love seeing babies really get all full of cake while enjoying themselves eating it.  It’s one of the rare times that a parent welcomes their baby getting all messy.  You never know how a one year old is going to react to a cake smash session.  Some start crying and want nothing to do with the cake, while others are loving the sugary goodness.  This little guy was totally loving the sweetness of his predicament and I was able to capture some of those gooey moments.

For anyone interested in booking a cake smash photo session for their baby (one year cake smash or two year cake smash), contact me to book your session.  I shoot them in my home in L’Ange Gardien, QC (just east of Gatineau). Meanwhile, enjoy these cake smash photos of this little cutie.

    I want to do that this with my little girl when she turns one! She’s 6 months old right now.

      That’s great. I love shooting cake smash photos. Contact me when your daughter is 11 months old and we can book a date and set up the details. 🙂

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.”
