What a difference an entire year can make.  Especially when you’re a baby!  I have enjoyed watching these little twins grow this past year, and now they’re celebrating their FIRST birthday!  (So hard to believe!)  I hardly recognize them from their newborn session now.  But they are definitely growing into such little cuties!  I especially love their blue eyes.  I’m not sure if I’ve EVER seen such blue eyes!  Okay, I’m going to show off a few of my faves now.  Winking smile

I was so excited to be asked to photograph this family’s new little bundle of joy.  I have been able to watch their clan grow from a couple, to a family of three, and now four over the last few years.  This was them just a few months back at their maternity session.  And their daughter before her first birthday last year.  Oh my how she has grown!!

And now to introduce the newest addition.  I found she looked a lot like her big sister as a new baby, but her colouring was definitely a little different.  It’s so neat to compare their features and figure out where they came from.  Regardless, she was definitely a little sweetheart.  And here she is!!  Smile

I prefer to photograph newborn babies when they are brand new, between 3 and 10 days.  Therefore if you would like to set something up, it’s best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  I look forward to hearing from you!!


This little family has grown another 2 feet.  After having two girls, I can imagine what a surprise it was to find out they were having a baby BOY!  Even though Mom said she didn’t know what to do with a little boy, I think it all comes naturally.  The girls completely adore their baby brother, and were so eager to help me take photos of him.  He was so adorable…I just wanna show him off!!  Smile

I believe newborn photos are best taken within the first ten days of a baby’s arrival.  Not only do they cooperate a little better, but the reality is they don’t stay small forever.  (As much as you’d like them to)  In my experience, I noticed a huge change within the first month – they are completely different looking babies.  Photography is an EXCELLENT way to preserve these memories, and also document your kids as they grow (and unfortunately KEEP growing).  Most of my newborn clients know how I LOVE to capture a new babies little fingers and toes.  But another way I have discovered is by doing hand and feet prints.  Whether you want to get out some finger paints or clay; it’s a fun way to keep track of how much they have grown, or how big they are at a certain age.

Now this by no means a professional art quality piece of work; but it was definitely a fun project to do.  Now I have this awesome little keepsake!  I did the first little hand print with my son when he was 3 years old.  Just your standard kit from Michaels; nothing too fancy.  Although I do admit, I didn’t really follow all of the instructions.  I decided to create my own look rather than the one they showed on the box.  And now 5 years later I got the same little kit and did a matching hand print of my daughter at age 3.  I think it’s so neat to see how small they were at that age and compare the two.  I can tell that my son has got my hands, and my daughter – definitely my hubby’s.  But what’s interesting to me is how their fingers are in the EXACT same position.  With their index and middle fingers closer together, and then the pinkie way off doing something else.  Interesting, hey?  Well, these are my little people’s little hands.  Aren’t they so cute??  Open-mouthed smile

I had a great time meeting up with this couple – now a little family of three.  It feels like it wasn’t too long ago that I was photographing mama’s perfectly round belly.  And a few weeks ago it was this perfect little baby.

I seriously don’t now how they can fit so much cuteness into such a little package!  It’s amazing.  This little gal was one of the sweetest little things I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  She was so relaxed and easy going as long as we did what she wanted to do.  And if you hadn’t guessed, she already has Mom and Dad wrapped around her little finger.  (I can’t blame them though, I’d do anything for that sweet little face!)  I had some real difficulties picking a few favourites…but this is what I came up with.  Isn’t she just the cutest?!?!  Open-mouthed smile

This little cutie was 10 days old.  Newborn babies photograph best when they are between 5 and 10 days old.  Therefore it’s best to reserve a spot while you are still pregnant.  If you are thinking of having your new baby photographed when they arrive, please contact me so we can chat about your session.  Also, why not join me on facebook?  Then you can keep up with any news or promotions that are going on.  I look forward to hearing from you!

I know we’re almost halfway through the year (if you can believe it!), but I wanted to share a new package that was introduced back in January.  It has quickly become one of my more popular items, especially for new parents.  I’m talking about Digital Packages.  I currently have two packages available to suit your needs.

Each package includes:

  • High resolution images on a CD for printing
  • Low resolution images on a CD for online sharing
  • Professionally printed 5×7 of each image chosen
  • Custom CD case to hold everything together

Two completely unrelated things.  But as it worked out, they both occured today!  And it’s not EVERY day that I have another photographer feature me on their blog.  So I guess today would be one of those odd days.  Lee-Ann of “Ginger Snaps!” did a little Q&A with me if you would like to take a look.  Plus I was able to show off some of beautiful baby and family photos.  Winking smile

I quite enjoyed our little taste of summer today.  But as I was digging around in my garden I remembered I hadn’t posted any photos from the Tulip festival this year.  Which is one of my favourite events of the year, and one of the reasons why I love Ottawa so much.  Each year it’s getting a little bit harder to convince my son to go down to see the flowers though.  He’s a true boy; why in the world would he want to see FLOWERS?  Until he smelled the Beaver Tails that is.  Then he was on a mission to find where that sweet smell was coming from.  My daughter on the other hand, LOVED all the flowers.  She liked the pink ones, the purple ones, the red ones and even the white ones.  And when she saw the yellow ones she was so excited to show me, because well, yellow is MY favourite colour!  Because of conflicting schedules and the crappy weather, we didn’t get down to see the tulips until it was almost too late.  Some of them were pretty well done, but others still made a pretty picture.  Smile

All that being said, I am itching to get outside in this nice weather!  (With my camera of course.)  If you are thinking of setting up a family portrait this summer, don’t delay!  The summer months tend to book up quickly.  Please contact me today ( so we can chat.  Enjoy the beautiful week ahead!!  Open-mouthed smile

I’m very much a name gal.  I LOVE to hear what name a new parent has chosen to give their newborn baby.  And this little guy landed the CUTEST name!  Okay, I totally gave it away…but meet little Romeo.  (Totally love it!)  They were not expecting this little guy to arrive quite so early.  Poor mom didn’t get a chance to finish up work and have some time to herself as planned.  Instead she’s got quite the houseful with little Romeo and his active big sister.  (Which by the way, was the sweetest little thing ever!)  I was so happy to have a little boy to photograph; it seems as if lately there’s been an abundance of girls.  Not that I don’t have so much fun with girls!  But I had just made a new prop (a little boys necktie), that I definitely needed the perfect little boy to test it out for me.  I think Romeo did an EXCELLENT job!  Okay, here’s a few I’d like to show off.  Smile

I was unsure if it was possible for a baby to have luscious lips.  Then I met miss Lea.  And I DARE you to disagree with me!  She was one of the bigger babies that I’ve seen lately.  This tubby little 9 pounder was big trou-ble!  With way too much excitement going on, she did NOT want to miss a thing!  She’s already got mom, dad and grandparents wrapped around her little finger.  I can just imagine as she gets older!  Okay, I’m just going to show her off and all her chubby cuteness!  Smile

Mom was fully prepared to have an Easter baby.  Complete with cute bunny hat (made by Christine’s Creations).  But little Logan had other ideas.  He thought it would be more fun to arrive a few weeks early.  We didn’t mind though, he was the perfect little gentleman.  A photographer’s dream actually.  Besides a mild case of the hiccups, this boy was awesome!

And now for this first image, I really don’t know what he’s doing.  I may be in the middle of a yawn, getting ready to yell, or is actually giving us the biggest smile you’ve ever seen.  Perhaps he’s just happy to be escaping that swaddle!  Whatever it is….it’s super cute!!  Open-mouthed smile

There are always so many cute girly accessories available to add to baby girl photographs, so I’m always on the lookout for something boyish.  When I came across this little skull and cross bone wrap, I could not resist!
