It was a bit cold and windy for the D Family’s annual family portrait session, but sunny!  So we can’t complain really.

It is so nice to see so many families year after year, and this family is no exception.  While big sister S, is definitely coming into her own, I couldn’t get over Mr. J!  In the course of the last year, he has really grown from a toddler to a proper little boy.  It is just wonderful to see.  And I LOVED the interaction between the two siblings!  They are as adorable as ever!

Just look!  I think they must be sharing a private joke or something 🙂

Don’t you just wish that fall was another month or two longer?  It really is the perfect season.  The vibrant colours, the nice temperatures, the yummy fall dishes and drinks (not going to lie, I’m pumpkin spiced latte obsessed) and all the outdoor fun you can handle!  And if you can look past all the rain we’ve had recently, there have been some brilliant days that have made for perfect family photos!

I met this lovely family, by referral from another amazing past client.  I was so happy that she past my name on to mom.  We had so much fun, singing, discussing Halloween costumes (we think there will be an abundance of Queen Elsa’s this year – both our 5 year olds included!) and taking beautiful family portraits!  Fall doesn’t get much better than that!

Thank you L&E and C&L – it was great to meet you all!

A few days earlier than expected K&H welcomed a beautiful new baby girl, Miss S, into the the world.  Miss S joins her big sister C, who during our session proved to be such a pleasent little helper!  Not only did she sing to her little sister, but she read to her and even helped pick out her outfit and get her dressed!  I can see lots of girly dancing, singing and 2 little fashionistas in mom and dad’s future.  It is going to be so fun!

It really is a beautiful time of year here in Ottawa.  It doesn’t surprise me that requests for fall family photo sessions practically break my email!  The colours, the warmish temperatures, and the golden sunlight, make portraits magical.  It is a shame the season doesn’t last longer.

I had the honour of photographing M&D a few years ago, along with their children.  Now they are almost full fledged empty nesters, M contacted me about doing a session that celebrated just the two of them surrounded by the glory of fall.  I think it is a wonderful idea and something all couples should do every once in awhile.  In fact, my husband and I just did this ourselves!  While family photos are absolutely memories to treasure as well, as our kids grow, they too will treasure pictures of us, their parents.  It really goes both ways.

When C emailed me to tell me they were expecting again, I was so excited to hear their news.  After having twins in her first pregnancy and then leaving their newborn session a few weeks later, I was fairly confident their family was complete.  But boy was I wrong!  Now we are days away from baby number 3 (if they haven’t arrived already!).  Having 3 kids means making big changes…bigger cars, maybe a bigger home, more laundry but also a lot more love.  I am completely confident that C& J and big brother and sister N&M have the love part covered.

Can’t wait to photograph the newborn baby soon!

I first met this wonderful family a few years back, when there were just 3 of them.  Mom C was pregnant with baby number two and Miss R had been their whole world until then.  Now, she is a big confident grade 2 girl, and that little boy is a typical, adventurous 3 year old – just where did all that time go?

We had a lovely warm “fall” evening (it felt like summer) exploring the trails, climbing fences and jumping from trees.  Childhood bliss.

And not just because it revoles around the bitty people in our lives!  (although clearly this Mom and Dad are all about little Miss E’s world). But about halfway through this wonderful fall family session, Mom K, turned to me and asked, “were you at the neighbourhood street party this summer?”  While not EXACTLY our street, yes, yes I was!  “I knew I recognized you!”  Turns out we live in the same neighbourhood!  Lucky for me.  Maybe I will get to see Little E’s face at the park sometime.  Check her out….she is irresistable!
