Ottawa Hogs Back Engagement Photos

Ottawa Hogs Back Engagement Photos

Last week I shot some Ottawa Hogs Back engagement photos of these two lovelies.  The weather forecast was pretty dismal.  Not only was it supposed to rain on the day we were scheduled to shoot, but also on the rain date we had scheduled.  How crappy is that?  So, I checked the hourly weather forecast ALL. DAY. LONG.  No joke.  Finally, at the last minute, I decided that we should just go ahead and meet for the engagement shoot.  I’m so relieved that we did go ahead with the shoot.  It ended up being beautiful and sunny for 7:00 pm, when we began shooting.  About a half hour later the clouds began to roll in, so we had to hustle to finish the engagement shoot.  But I managed to get some nice shots of them before the rain began.

We shot the engagement session at Hog’s Back Park in Ottawa because the location had a special meaning for these two.  And ironically, it also happens to rain whenever they come to Hog’s Back.  Go figure.  I guess that’s why it started to rain at the end of our photo session.  Anyway, I hope that you enjoy these engagement photos.  Maybe they can even give you ideas of where you want to have your own engagement photos taken.  You can also take a look at some of my other engagement photography work to see other locations possibilities.

    Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or
    tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thank you!

    Hello, great work on your website.

Stittsville Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

Stittsville Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

Ottawa Newborn Photographer

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot a Stittsville home lifestyle newborn session with this cute little family.  First, I gotta mention that their daughter is a preemie.  She was born three months early!  When I came to shoot her newborn session, she was 38 gestational weeks old!  And she was a whopping four pounds.  But she’s a little fighter.  She was even fighting against being swaddled.  Ha!  Ha!  She was such a little cutie.  And she was pretty tiny–even for newborn standards.  As you can tell, even the preemie clothes were too big for her.

I gotta mention something that impressed me.  A lot of parents wait until the third trimester to finish the nursery.  However, this mama was a smart cookie.  She had the nursery finished before her third trimester.  That was so smart, since their little girl arrived three months early.  As you can see by the photos, she has great taste in how to decorate.  Just look at the cute handmade items she found on Etsy.  If you haven’t taken a look on etsy yet, you need to go now and check it out.  There are so many amazing artists selling their wares online.  You can get some ready cute things on there.

I really enjoyed shooting this particular newborn photo shoot.  I got so many great shots.  It was really hard to narrow them down to the final edits.  I mean, this little girl was so adorable and pretty spunky for her little frame.  And the parents were fantastic to work with.  So friendly and easy going.  I’m really lucky to get to work with some awesome clients.  🙂

    Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..

    Any ideas? Kudos!

Baby Boy Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn Photo Session

Baby Boy Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn Photo Session

Ottawa Baby Photographer

A couple of weeks ago I shot a baby boy Ottawa lifestyle newborn photo session.  This little man was a real cutie.  He’s their first child, well, at least the non-furry kind.  You see, these guys are animal lovers.  In fact, mama is a vet.  How cool is that?  So, it was only fitting that their son’s nursery have an animal theme.  I loved all of the cute animal decorations.

Ottawa Rustic Spring Pregnancy Photo Session

Ottawa Rustic Spring Pregnancy Photo Session

Ottawa Maternity Photographers

This past week I shot an Ottawa rustic spring pregnancy photo session in the woods with these two.  This time of year is kind of a weird transitional time.  You kind of don’t know what you’re gonna get, weather-wise.  We had to reschedule their outdoor maternity shoot three times.  I’ve never had to reschedule a photo session more than once.  First, we had to reschedule due to freezing high winds.  Secondly, we had to reschedule because of an ice storm.  And finally, we had to reschedule due to rain.  What a drag.  However, the actual photo date ended up being great weather.  It was fairly warm; the sun came out for at least part of their session and most importantly, it didn’t rain.  Yay!

These guys were great to work with.  They followed my instructions and gave me some nice smiles.  And they dressed well for their session, which always makes the photos turn out that much better.  This mama-to-be looked stunning in her beautiful maternity gown.  She’s coming near the end of her pregnancy and she looks fabulous.

I look forward to shooting their newborn session after their little girl is born.  Stay tuned.  🙂

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.

frozen-theme-birthday-party-dessert-table-with-turquoise-balloonsI’ve written in my journal for 30+ years.  From time to time I reread things that I’ve written in the past.  It’s so wonderful to reread things that I said, did or thought.  Many times I actually realize that I’ve forgotten about something that happened.  It makes me grateful that I wrote about it and included photos to help me keep those memories alive.  Most people don’t write in a journal or diary.  If you don’t write in a diary, it will be photos that will help you to remember those wonderful events and to keep those memories alive.  I want to help you to keep those memories alive by documenting your event for you.  I love shooting weddings, but I will also shoot at other events, like a birthday party.


“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)
