An amazing contest to say the least! A shame that we won’t be in Ottawa to take advantage of the chance to win this!

Locked In Love – Ottawa Engagement Photographer

It’s a winter wonderland out there, and it’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL! It’s also, almost Valentine’s Day! Why not make the day memorable, and book a Locked In Love mini session at Ottawa’s Love Lock bridge on top of the Canal! Make a day or morning out of it, come and skate along the canal, get a beavertail (obviously!), and then come with your sweetheart and make memories that will last far longer than chocolate! Maybe you’re about to surprise your love by proposing, you do NOT want to miss capturing that moment! Maybe you’ve been married for 20 years, and probably have pictures of your kids, but don’t have any of you and your love since the wedding. There is no better time than now! You deserve nice things for yourselves too, heck you’ve earned it! I’ll provide a lock for you to inscribe something personal on, and then lock onto the bridge, throwing away the key, symbolizing an unbreakable love. I’m not sure you can get more romantic than that! hehe!

Take a peek at a mini session I did on the weekend for one of my past couples who JUST got engaged over the holidays! You can feel the love and joy they share together!

I am loving that heart snowball with the ring in it. Too cute. And I love that bright splash of purple. Amazing shots. :)

Best Of 2013 – Ottawa Child Photographer

Here is my third, and possibly final installment of my Best Of series. It’s a long one, but there were just so many wonderful sessions this year! The post starts off with all of the cutest kids I had the honour to meet, followed by the lovers and the singles and finished up with my minis! I offered a couple different mini sessions throughout the year, Back To School Minis and Christmas Minis! Minis are a great way to celebrate a certain time of year without needing the time or large gallery like with a full session! I’m not sure I can thank you all enough for the impact you’ve each had on my life this year. I look forward to watching your families grow, and meeting new ones! From my family to yours, I wish you a Happy New Year!!

Cheers to 2014! I can’t wait to see all that it holds!!


Best Of 2013 – Ottawa Newborn Photographer

Well, it’s that time of year again, time to look back at this past year and all the amazing people I’ve had a chance to meet! I’ve had a GREAT year, so I’ll be separating my best of into a couple different posts! To start things off, here are some of my absolute FAVOURITES from this years maternity and newborn sessions! There is something so touching to know I’ve been chosen to capture such a life changing time in people’s lives. While newborns may be challenging, they are moments in your lil ones life you won’t ever get to recreate! Thank you parents for your patience with these sessions, I know the final products were well worth it!

Stay tuned for more Best Of posts!
