Fall Family Portraits in Gatineau

Fall Family Portraits in Gatineau

Just before the Thanksgiving weekend, I shot some fall family portraits in Gatineau. There are some really pretty spots on the Gatineau side to see the beautiful fall foliage. I have a few spots that I like to shoot at during the fall. This is one of my favourite spots in Gatineau.

This little family were great to work with. Although their little girl was a bit of a tough cookie to crack a smile, I was finally able to get some nice smiles from her. It just took getting mommy and daddy to get her to smile and sonetimes me having to act foolishly. But we got those smiles, which made it all worth the goofy efforts.

She loved playing in the leaves. It was cute to see her so happy sitting and playing in the leaves. Oh, to be a small child again. Not a care in the world, except to eat, sleep and play. But, I digress. I hope you enjoy these autumn family pictures.

If you’d like to do a fall photo session, please make sure to book a spot well before the leaves actually begin to change colours. I had quite a few people requesting to book a fall days literally days before the leaves were in their fall prime. And some even contacting me after the fall prime, but contacting me Friday afternoon to book a Saturday session. Shooting on the weekend in the fall is prime time for photographer, so to make sure you can book a session, book with a photographer by early to mid-September at the latest. If not, you may be disappointed to not book anything.

Barrhaven Lifestyle Newborn Photo

Barrhaven Lifestyle Newborn Photo Session

Two weeks ago, I shot a Barrhaven lifestyle newborn photo session of this beatiful family. I’ve worked with them before, so it was fantastic to work with them again. I must mention that mama is a detail person, so it was awesome to see the nursery decorations. Check out the wildlife details. And the little outfits for the kiddies.

Their little prince was pretty good during the shoot. He was calm for most of it. He tried to fight against getting swaddled up, but then he snuggled in and went to sleep, which made it easier to pose him in various positions.

One thing I like about shooting lifestyle newborn photo sessions is that it gives the family the opportunity to infuse their personalities and intersts into the shoot. Hence, this little man was shot with some soccer and baseball paraphanalia. Check out the first shot!

Not to be outdone, big sis posed for some beautiful portraits. She wore the dress that her mama wanted her to wear at the maternity session. Yay for this win! And she was more open to letting me take photos of her. In fact, she was all over having her photos taken. She was also very interested in my photography equipment and what I was shooting in the nursery.

It was a such a pleasure to work with this family again and to see them grow from a family of three to a family of four. Congratulations. I hope for nothing but the best best for all of you. 🙂

Ottawa Horticulture Building Wedding

Curtis & Nicole’s Ottawa Horticulture Building Wedding

I’m pleased to showcase Curtis and Nicole’s Ottawa Horticulture building wedding photos. I’ve been wanting to shoot a wedding at the Horticulture building for a number of years now. So, I was happy when Nicole and Curtis told me that they were getting married there. Lansdowne has such a pretty and unique looking building. And it’s totally up my alley as far as style.

Their wedding day had perfect weather. Thank goodness it wasn’t humid or stifling hot. It was sunny with some clouds and the temperature was about 23°C. As a result, we had nice lighting for their formal portraits at a beautiful nearby park, before we headed over to Lansdowne for the ceremony and reception. Their ‘first look’ was a bit different, compared to other first looks that I’ve shot. Since Curtis was running late, we had Nicole wait for him to come up behind her and then have her turn around to see him. It was non-conventional as far as first looks go. But, I think it turned out well.

Beautiful Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was quite pretty. The horticultural building was decorated quite beautifully with white chiffon draping and a golden moon gate arch. The reception area was very beautiful as well with the dark linens mixed with gold accents. Sage Designs did an excellent job with the wedding decorations.

Mill Street Ottawa Wedding

Mat & Laura’s Mill Street Wedding

About a month ago, I shot Mat and Laura’s Mill Street Ottawa wedding. For anyone not familiar with Mill St. Brewery, it’s located in a gorgeous heritage building beside the Ottawa River. Oh, and they serve delicious food. Check it out.

On the wedding day the weather was kinda bleak. In fact, it poured while we were shooting the getting ready shots. Luckily those were shot indoors. It also began to pour during their ceremony. But by the time the ceremony was finished, the rain stopped and we were able to go outdoors to shoot portraits. I’m so happy about that because we got some beautiful scenery in their portraits. And I’m happy that I was able to at least show a bit of parliament overlooking the river in a few of their portraits, since that’s what they had wanted, but decided against driving down to parliament to get them. It was humid, but I’d take humid and no more rain, than pouring cats and dogs outside. 🙂

Once the formal photos were taken, everyone could let loose and party. It was a pleasure to work with Mat and Laura. I wish the both of you and your little family all the best in your future. May the sun always shine on you.

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss

Orchard View Wedding Photos

Tom and Leah’s Orchard View Wedding Photos

Several weeks ago I shot Tom and Leah’s Orchard View wedding photos. With all of the heat and humidity that we’ve been having for quite some time, we were blessed that it wasn’t too hot, but still sunny. It made for a nice outdoor wedding at the pergola area and then it was nice to head indoors into air conditioning.

Their wedding went without a hitch. Except for a slight blunder with pinning the wrong flowers on the men (which was soon rectified), it went smoothly. Everyone was in great spirits. The food was good and everyone was having fun. The little ones put on a great show on the dance floor too. They were too cute.

I have to mention one striking detail about Tom and Leah’s wedding rings. Tom’s mother bought the gold bands in Russia 35 years ago. Talk about planning for the future. I love it!

Another thing I must mention is that the wedding favours they gave to their guests were homemade maple syrup in glass maple leaf bottles. (My family and I tried the maple syrup the next day and it had a really nice taste. Even my Quebecois husband–who’s a maple syrup snob–said it was good!)

Experimental Farm Family Maternity

Experimental Farm Family Maternity Photos

Last week I shot some experimental farm family maternity photos with this lovely little family. I’ve worked with mama and papa before. I shot their Ottawa maternity session and newborn baby photo session with their daughter. It’s always great to work with my past clients again.

Their little girl was your typical two-year-old. Luckily, they brought along a friend to take her for walks to give her a bit of a break from photos. All in all, she did fabulously and I was able to get lots of great smiles from her. It was a win. I’m happy with how the photos turned out. I hope that you like them too. I look forward to photographing their newborn session when their little man arrives in the world.
