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!

Last weekend I met a wonderful family and had the chance to capture them at home together.  I always love when parents recognize the importance of family photos beyond the childhood years.  (it is also nice to have subjects that listen to you – much easier than that spunky 2-4 year old set!).  M&M had photos displayed all over their home – from years past to very current.   I think it is a way of enveloping yourself with love and I adored it.  Mom was so happy to show them all off to me too and I enjoyed hearing all the stories behind the photo.  And while I know that their son D, would rather be doing anything than having his picture taken, the fact that he did it for his mom, with a smile on his face, is a great testament to the family they have created.  I’m happy to be adding a few more portraits to their walls.

It was a beautiful sunny morning when I met A&M to photograph their family and their little guy C.  But don’t let that fool you!  It was a bit on the chilly side.  A sure sign that fall is making way for winter.  But despite that, Mr. C was a ton a fun and stuck with it.  He very much enjoyed a little freedom to run and explore all while posing for a few pictures along the way.  He is truly adorable and has a smile that I’m sure will break a few hearts along the way.  Watch out mom and dad!

It is so hard to believe that I have been capturing these two little guys since before they were born!  The first time I met mom and dad, they were expecting their very first baby, and we were shooting their maternity session.  Since then we have met and captured even more family milestones.  And now, these boys are on the eve of their first and third birthdays!

We met at Brewer Park, on what turned out to be a VERY cold and windy afternoon.  But we made the most of it and all I can say is that these boys were troopers!  They didn’t complain, not even once (while us adults might have been – just a little) and they looked adorable throughout.

Sometimes mother nature just doesn’t want to co-operate.  Sometimes it is scheduling conflicts.  But whatever the case, I am so glad that we had to reschedule this session!  Originally on the calendar in September, we didn’t actually make it work until now – November!  But when you get a gorgeous, sunny fall day like this one, I’m so glad that we had to wait.

You may remember this family from a few years back, when they had just welcomed twins L&C into their fold.  And wow – babies no longer!  And their big brother H, is even bigger!  Time moves quickly and it always amazes me just how much kids grown and learn in such a relatively short period of time.  It was so great to catch up with you all and I enjoyed the afternoon playing in the leaves with all of you – don’t be strangers!

It makes my heart burst when families want to book a mulit-generational photosession….and after photographing the S family for years, it was so nice to finally meet the parents behind the parents!  These sessions are truly gifts to treasure forever.  To be able to look back on years from now and say “hey, I have Grandma’s eyes” or “I smile just like grandpa!” or even, “wow, look what Daddy looked like when I was 5!” really helps connect us to our families, our history and know where we came from.  These a precious memories that I am grateful to play a small part in.

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.
