They laughed, they smiled, they embraced and then laughed some more! 

I left this session with the biggest smile on my face.  Not just because of the amazing images created, but because the feeling of friendship and love that radiated from these girls.  You just know it will stand the test of time.

When M first contacted me to capture her and her friends to celebrate one of their birthdays, I wondered just what they had in mind. They had met while completing their master degrees here in Ottawa and were now working in the city.  I didn’t want this to be Prom recreated, or something of that nature, but after a few emails back and forth, I knew we had the same vision and more importantly it was going to be FUN!  And it was!  We met on a beautiful fall afternoon at Major’s Hill Park and wandered around downtown and through the Byward Market.  Every location brought out a different side of their personalities, but no matter where we were the connection was evident.  These young, beautiful, smart and stylish women are friends for life 🙂

We can’t forget the birthday girl!  I loved this pop of colour she brought to the group – perfect!

And individual shots….ah to be young and carefree again!

This session was so fun for me.  I have a special place in my heart for families with three kids.  Probably because I too have three (for about 3 more months, at least ;)) and know both the joy and exhaustion when kids out number the grown ups! 

I also know how difficult getting three kids to cooperate for a photo session can be too!  Been there, done that!  But these guys were soooo good and so adorable and such little posers that our time together flew by with ease!

Well without making mom wait another moment…meet the F family!

Whew!  This post has been a long time coming.  The fall portrait season has been very busy at Jennifer Bailey Photography, so I’m just a little behind!  But I’m getting caught up as we speak 🙂

So let’s get right to it!

First Miss F!  She came ready for me to photograph her for her holiday card, wearing the cutest outfits!  She was perfect!

Mom & Dad run Tosca Ristorante in downtown Ottawa.  With the Christmas season coming up, maybe escape the hustle and bustle for a quiet dinner for 2 – sans kids!  Be sure to tell them I sent you!  Visit them at 144 O’Conner Street.






Next I met a wonderful family, chock full of beautiful girls!  Not to mention their gorgeous parents!  Mom and I have some mutual friends, but had never met before.  Thank you C family for coming out and making my job so gosh darn easy!  You have a very photogenic family – I had a very difficult time deciding which photos to include in your sneak peek! And your girls are so good!  You should be very proud

Next up came a little girl I have had the pleasure of photographing before – I love it when I get to watch them grow!  You may remember Miss S.  She was a very serious baby when I first met her, but she was much more willing to part with a smile this time around!  I’m sure that will make mom happy!


I have one more family to come….sorry for leaving you hanging J.  But they decided to upgrade from my mini session to a full session, so I decided they deserved their own sneak peek post.  Watch for it shortly, ’cause they are adorable!

This past Sunday, I spent the most glorious day at the Experimental Farm capturing some of Ottawa’s best looking families!  Seriously!! 

This year’s Fall Mini Sessions with Jennifer Bailey Photography were a sold out affair and I enjoyed every minute.  While the day started out on the cool side, the sun was out, the leaves were spectacular and everyone was wearing a smile.  Perfection. 

I’d like to thank everyone who came out – both old and new families.  I enjoyed catching up with some of you and meeting others for the first time.  Enjoy your sneak peeks!

First up, the B family!  You may remember baby A’s newborn session from almost a year ago now.  Wow time flies!

Next up, the C family!  Another family I think I photographed almost a year ago to the day!  I can’t believe how much bigger the boys seem

I was thrilled to finally meet up with this family this past weekend at Rideau Hall.    The session was a gift to little N (and her parents) from her friends for her 1st birthday back in the spring, but mom and dad wanted fall family pictures and boy, nature did not disappoint!  After having to reschedule once due to rain, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day.  Rideau Hall was in full glory with a stunning display of colours and sun – which we all know has been missing in action here in Ottawa for the last while!

Thank you beautiful N and mom & dad for a glorious weekend walk captured in portraits to last a lifetime!  Enjoy your sneak peek!
