I can’t tell you how much fun I had photographing the K family on this gorgeous fall afternoon, just as the sun was setting…it was delish!  I just knew we were in for some lovely images when this was the very first one I captured of them.  Yes, the very first…

Five beautiful faces looking at the camera – no one squirming, blinking or making a funny expression!! 

These boys were so wonderful to work with, so well behaved and so happy to be with each other and their family.

And moms and dads deserve some great photos too!  I really really believe it is important to surround yourself with memories of your ENTIRE family, not just the kids.  I’m so glad that L&J were happy to take the moment for them too.

I always tell my clients, the earlier the better for newborn photography.  And on day 6, Mr. C did not disappoint!  He was just a lovely little boy to photograph – pleasant, happy and beautiful skin to boot.  Mom and Dad are clearly smitten and such naturals!  They let me do my thing and I think we caputre some real treasures of their son.

Thanks K&S for being so patient during this busy time!  I hope it was worth the wait!

It is always nice to photograph some of Ottawa’s beautiful families, but this one was extra special!  There were two!

Not only are these families close friends, but two of the kids are even dating each other!  It was so amazing to see the interaction and genuine affection they all had for each other.  I felt it just being in their company for a short time.  It really is a blessing to have friends like this in your lives.

Thank you M for organizing this photo extravaganza!  I can’t wait for you to see ALL the pictures!  Until then, enjoy your sneak peek!

This little guy has us all waiting for his arrival.  We waited and waited and then waited some more.  If I recall correctly, he was 10 days late!  So with all that extra snug as a bug time with mom, he had very little interest in sleep when it came time to meet me!  So we did a little more waiting and finally he slept 🙂  oh for maybe 2 photos! ha. 

I also found that this session was speaking to me in black and white.  I LOVE black and white images for newborns.  I think it just brings out a little more emotion.  What do you think?

and boys they were!

we ran, we chased, we pleaded, we begged.  But I loved every minute of it!  Even with an agenda of their own, these boys were a pleasure to photograph.  It was a lovely morning to walk around Ottawa’s Arboretum and capture special family moments and memories that will last much longer than our time together.  Thanks again T&L for keeping me on my toes!

Even in the middle of a busy fall family portrait season, I have had my fair share of fresh newborn babies.  My favourite little subjects.

This little one was the warm glow on a cool day.  I couldn’t get enough of her or her gorgeous head of hair and I think I’m officially jealous.  Mom and Dad clearly can’t get enough of her either. I don’t think their smiles left their faces the whole time I was there.

Thanks again W&J, it was a pleasure to meet you and to capture Miss C.  She’s a keeper!

You would almost think that the fates were conspiring against us!  We had to reschedule this session so many times that I think I lost count!  But time was working against us and we had to get K’s Maternity session in before her son made his big arrival!  Finally we agreed to meet at the Chapman Mills Conservation area one afternoon, and wouldn’t you know it….litterally the second I stepped out of my front door, the rain started to fall!

So onto Plan B, and back to K&S’s home.  But really despite the rain, I think it worked out great.  Their beautiful and bright home was the perfect place for their maternity session.  And it the nick of time –  Baby C made his debut a few days later!  Those pictures will come soon, so stay tuned!

Fall is a popular time for family portraits in Ottawa and I have been keeping very busy capturing what seems like many many of you!  Slowly but surely I am catching up, so if you are waiting for your sneak peeks, hang on just a little longer…they are coming, I promise!

I spent a wonderful sunny morning with this gorgeous family at the Arboretum.  While the wind was it a little blowy, it didn’t stop us!  In fact I think little C kind liked it blowing around.

Thanks again C!  You have a lovely family and it was great to meet you all!
