Say that ten times fast!!

On Sunday night, I had the pleasure of photographing not one, but TWO Ottawa Photographer’s families!!  A while back, Christine of Love Bunny Photography, Shona of Shona Reid Photography and I decided to do a swap of sorts.  While we all have beautiful portraits of our own children, when you are behind the camera most of the time, the photos of us with our families are far and few between.  So we fixed that!

It was 3 families racing against the dark clouds gathering in the distance.  I think we won 🙂

First up Christine’s and her boys

With initials like these, I knew they HAD to be fun to photograph!  – little photographer humour 😉

I LOVE maternity sessions! So when C called me to photograph her belly bump and family, I jumped at the chance!  There is just some much going on – new body, anticipation, love, change, growth…to capture it all is always fun and challenging.  After being rained out one night, we rescheduled, and met at the Arbouretum on a gorgeous summer evening, where big sister to be was happy to show off her excitement!

A newborn photo session isn’t always easy.  Babies like to be held and rocked and fed….all very normal and all taken into account when capturing this very fleeting time.  But every once and awhile a baby comes along that is a rockstar!  and Baby J is one such baby!

Other than a little feed and a few quick clean ups, he was as happy as can be!  Almost makes my job seem easy…*almost*.

Thank you D for inviting me into your lovely home.  Enjoy the sneak peek of your handsome man!

Not the baby of course!!  He was very much wanted.

But a fly!  During Baby G’s newborn session we were followed around by a rather annoying and unwanted fly.  We had to stop and shake him away a few times, but that didn’t stop us from capturing some beautiful images.

I just love this little series with mom and dad.  Makes me smile everytime 🙂

And I just love the Lebanese tradition of gifting those who come to see you and welcome your new baby with treats!  So sweet – literally!  Just check out this spread!  My kids were very jealous

I can’t tell you how excited I was to meet this little Prince and Princess.  Twins just aren’t something I get to photograph as often as singletons, so they really are a treat!  Not only that, I’m always in awe of mom and dad.  Yes, I have four children of my own, but none that require the same thing or same needs at the SAME time. 

These 2 definitely made us all work for the afternoon, but I think the images speak for themselves.
