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 🙂

You never know what the weather is going to do this time of year.  In the last 2 weeks, we’ve had fog, frost, sun and heat!  So sometimes, when you just aren’t sure what the weather is going to do, it is better to just go for it!  And that is what we did a few weeks ago with the C family.  It was really windy and the sun was pretty non-existant, but we made the most of it and it turned out pretty perfect, if I may say so myself!

It is always a joy to photograph this family and I have had the honour for over 6 years now.  That 6 year old little girl, the smiley diva?  She is the little wide eyed newborn baby girl on my blog header – staring right at the camera!  I am so privledge to call them friends and I love watching their family grow and change through the years.  Without more rambling….here they are, the 2014 version of their family!

It isn’t a secret how much I love first birthdays.  Really, I love all birthdays, but there is something extra special about that very first one!  Babies learn to do so many things in their first year of life – smiling, laughting, rolling over, sitting up, eating first food, clapping, kissing, standing up, talking….the list goes on and on, so why not celebrate it???

This session was all about Baby A.  She brought along her big sister, A and big brother B to capture this new milestone in her life – turning one!

And of course, what is a celebration without a little cake?

It took a moment for A to really get into her cupcake, but then there was no stopping her!  One is fun!

You just know when someone wants to capture their entire family, there must be a lot of love that surrounds them.  And this is so true for the “GG” family!

I have been fortunate to meet N’s parents, visiting from Spain, when I photographed baby D as a newborn.  So while they were here in Ottawa recently, N emailed me to see if we could photograph the whole crew as a birthday gift to her mom and sister.  Isn’t that the nicest present ever??  It was really a lot of fun too!  With 2 babies, the number of songs and dances we all performed was probably worth charging admission for!

I definitely left the session with a smile on my face and a very full heart.

Thank you again N&C for inviting me into your lovely new home.  I wish a lifetime of happiness and more happy memory making in it.  And a big Happy Birthday to C & A!  Thank you for letting me capture this special celebration!

The leaves floated down from the trees as if they were snowflakes!  It made for such a beautiful backdrop for a fall family session.  I don’t think we could have asked for a nicer day.  I spent the afternoon with the M family at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum.  We wandered, we played, we posed and we were silly!  It was heaven.  And it was Miss C’s birthday to boot!

And you know it is going to be great fun when mom and dad request a shot like this!  They were just as silly as their girls!

I’m not kidding when I say this family photography session has been a summer in the making! 

We were rained out in June.

We were rained out in July.

And finally the Ottawa weather Gods played nice before the leaves started to change on us.

We had a fantastic evening walking the trails, talking, laughing and refereeing excited kids together, all while capturing some very special images, that I hope the G family will treasure.

Thanks again C&I for your patience – we finally got it!
