Just before Christmas I had the chance to meet and photograph the W Family.  They are the wonderful people behind Trailhead here in Ottawa. When mom contacted me for family portraits, we started dicussing possible locations.  When she mentioned the store, with the wonderful wooden porch and building, of course it had to be there!  When a place takes up such a large part of your heart and life, why not take advantage of it and commemorate it in photos to treasure always?

We met fairly early in the morning, prior to the store opening, but they kids were happy and warm in their awesome colourful jackets!  I often tell people that winter pictures are amazing – with all the white snow, whatever colours you choose to wear, they are going to pop and warm up and cold day!

Wow!  I haven’t done a product spotlight in a long while!  Well, it is about time, as I’ve just added these beauties to your product options – PHOTOBOXES!

One of the most common remarks I get after shooting a session and sending my clients their online proof gallery is, “I don’t know how I am going to choose!”

Well, with the introduction of the photoboxes to the product lineup, you won’t have to!  The boxes are designed by me, with the image and colour scheme chosen to compliment your session and include 25 5×7 bordered images of your choosing.  The nice thing about the photobox is you might have a picture you want to display in a frame in your home, and then maybe later change it up for another one – you have a box full of choices.  Or use it as a keepsake box to give to your newborn/child when they grow up.  The possibilies are endless.

***UPDATE***  This event is now SOLD OUT.  Thank you to my old (and new) clients for making the fall mini sessions a big success, each and every year!

My Fall Mini Sessions are always very popular.  However, this year exceeded my expectations!  I normally give my past clients the chance to scoop up the coveted spots first – prior to releasing the information on my blog or facebook page.  This year I didn’t even get a chance!  I had a waiting list.  So with further consideration, I have decided to open up a second day.  If you are considering booking a session for your family, please don’t delay!  Spaces are limited.

Contact me at for availability

This is the perfect time to capture your family with colours of fall as a beautiful backdrop,  AND as I will again be offering a new selection of holiday cards, it is also a great opportunity to get that special family image to grace your very own custom holiday card!

Please note: Mini Sessions are NOT available for newborn sessions.  They are a special session that requires much more time than a mini session allows for.

In the next in my series of Product Spotlights I decided to showcase Birth Announcements! 

Partly because, as many of you know, we just added our fourth to our brood and I wanted to show off her announcement, and partly because well, newborns are a HUGE part of my photography business and new moms go wild for these!

Birth Announcements are press printed and come in either a 5×5 or 5×7 postcard or folded format and are fully customizable in terms of pictures, design, colours and wording.  I am happy to work with you to create an announcement that is unique as your new little baby and that you are proud to show off to all your friends!

Press printed cards can also be customized as birthday invitations, thank you cards, Christmas or holiday cards.  The possibilities are endless!

I thought it might be a good idea to start a little feature here at Jennifer Bailey Photograpy called “Product Spotlight”.  Over the next few weeks I am going to take the time to put one of my products front and center for all of you to see!  I’m hoping that seeing these products up close will help my clients – and future clients – with their print selections and find the whole process that much easier!

First up – Gallery Wrapped Canvases!

Gallery wrapped canvases are my ABSOLUTE favourite way to display images in my home that I love, ones that make me truly happy and bring a smile to my face.  Why confine a portrait like that to a desktop image?  Go BIG, I say!  Yes, the upfront investment is more than your traditional print, but the wow factor a canvas brings to your walls, is worth it – I promise. 

Gallery wraps are printed on high quality canvas, and then stretched over a 2 inch wooden frame.  Each piece is sprayed with a protective coating and comes with a fully finished back, ready to hand on your wall the moment it is in your hands.  No waiting on a framer!

Canvases are als0 fantastic for filling up space on a large wall when hung in a grouping!  They are also great in sun filled rooms – no glare like a portrait under glass would display!

I like to punch a hole in each wallet size card and attach it to a little bag of candy.  It is ALWAYS  a hit with the kid’s friends!

I had the good fortune to meet Cheryl, the creative genius behind the retro inspired kids clothing line, Tiny Modernist, through a past client of mine.  I just adored her designs and the colourful fabrics and could just picture them on all the little girls I get to photograph!  So needless to say I was so excited when she contacted me to photograph the Tiny Modernist 2011 Spring Collection.

Tiny Modernist is a Toronto based company and Cheryl’s clothes can be found in many of the boutiques and at Craft Shows throughout the city (see below).  However, she also makes her designs available for purchase online, so be sure to check her out!  I guarentee you won’t be disappointed.  The clothes are well made and professionally finished.  No detail is overlooked and you can tell love and pride went into each piece. 

So without further ado, a sampling of The Tiny Modernist 2011 Spring Collection!
