Spring Child Photos in Masson-Angers

Spring Child Photos in Masson-Angers

So, today is throwback Thursday. I haven’t done one of these sorts of blog posts in a while. However, I was going through my lightroom catalogue on my computer and noticed that there was an old folder of photos that I had taken of my daughter in April of 2014. I somehow never got around to actually editing these photos. Oops! So, I took the opportunity to edit these spring child photos in Masson-Angers and then post some to my blog.


I’d love to photograph your portraits. Contact me to book a portrait session in either Ottawa or Gatineau. I have many beautiful locations I can recommend. I also shoot maternity photos, newborn lifestyle photography, weddings, engagement and cake smash photos.

You can view some other photo sessions that I’ve taken of my daughter:

Engagement Ring Detail Photos

Ottawa Wedding Photographer

So, this afternoon I was playing around taking engagement ring detail photos using some costume jewellery as well as my own engagement ring. I had purchased a couple of pretty velvet ring boxes in the last month. I bought them to use for my 2019 weddings when I shoot detail shots of the rings. However, I’m too excited to wait until the summer when I begin shooting weddings. So, I decided to play around doing detail shots for fun.

It takes some getting used to working with macro at such a close range. However, it was great practice for me. I think the photos turned out fairly well.

I can’t wait to use these pretty boxes to shoot engagement ring detail photos during my upcoming weddings this summer. It’s going to be so much fun. I can’t wait to see the results.


Are you searching for a wedding photographer for yourself or for someone else? I’d love to set up a time to chat. In the meantime, contact me and I can send you my wedding photography pricing guide.

The two ring boxes are from the following vendors:

Blue Luxe Velvet Ring Box: Bride to Bee Paperie on Etsy

Pink Velvet Ring Box: The Mrs Box

Custom Wedding USB Cases

Custom Wedding USB Cases

For the last few years I’ve been creating custom wedding USB cases for my wedding clients. I wanted to find a way to create something unique for each couple that would remind them of their wedding day.

Back in the day I used to make custom DVDs in custom DVD cases. However, technology has shifted a bit, so now I give my clients their wedding photos on a USB. But, just giving a USB stick isn’t the prettiest way to give photos. So, this is my way of making the whole experience more unique for each of my couples.


So far, these custom cases have been a hit. Yay!

If you’re engaged and are looking for a wedding photographer, I’d love to hear from you. Send me a quick email and I’ll be sure to send you my wedding pricing guide. Meanwhile, please check out more of my wedding and engagement photography:

Winter Mill Street Brewery Wedding

Winter Mill Street Brewery Wedding

One month ago I photographed Julie and Conrad’s winter Mill Street Brewery wedding in Ottawa, Ontario.  I was excited when I heard that they were having a winter wedding.  I was also happy to find out that they were having their wedding at Mill Street Brewery Pub in Ottawa.  It’s located in a heritage building just along the Ottawa river.  So pretty!

It was a sunny day, but a little cool at -13C.  Despite it being chillier than we were hoping, the family and wedding party braved the cold in order to get pretty outdoor winter wedding photos.  And the wedding party were total troopers.  My goodness, the girls had bare legs and short dresses.  My second shooter, Michelle, and I wore snow pants, toques, and warm winter boots.  I felt pretty warm, until near the end when my bare hands started to hurt from the cold.  I’m just glad that we didn’t get the really strong gusts of wind, which happened the day before and the day after their wedding day.

So, the entire day went smoothly and there was plenty of fun and laughter to be had by all.  One of the things I really liked about their wedding was that Conrad’s parents incorporated a traditional Polish wedding custom for the bride and groom.  Although Conrad’s mom briefly explained to me the significance of the ceremony, I had to google it in order to get the info for this blog post.

Bread, Salt and Vodka Ceremony

According to Polish tradition, the parents of the bride and groom greet the newly married couple with bread, salt and vodka at the front of the wedding table, so that their home might always enjoy abundance. The bride and groom each taste a piece of bread to signify: “May you never go hungry.” They each place a spec of salt on their tongue to signify, “May you overcome the bitterness in life.”

Next, they each choose one shot glass to drink out of.  One glass is filled with vodka and the other with water. So, the bride and groom have to choose which glass they will drink out of.  As a result, the person who picks up the vodka-filled glass will be the strong one in the marriage. Following this ritual, the bride and groom break the glass for good luck.  Personally, I liked that Julie ended up with the vodka, so she’s in charge. Yay to girl power!

Without further ado, I hope you enjoy viewing Conrad and Julie’s wedding photos. 🙂
