This past weekend I took some maternity photos of this cute looking couple at the Experimental Farm. I was all excited to do the shoot because I had checked the weather forecast and it said that it would be balmy at -6ºC. Woohoo! Unfortunately, I didn’t look at the wind chill factor, which made it feel more like -13ºC. Fortunately, this couple were real sports in braving the chilly winds to do their outdoor photo shoot. And I’m always game if my clients are too, in terms of doing a photo shoot.
I am so happy with how well this photo session turned out that I had so many fantastic shots to choose from to add to the blog post. Luckily we did the shoot that day, because the wee one decided to come four weeks early and was born the very next morning! Congratulations to the both of you with the arrival of your little boy.

Winter Maternity Photos in the Snow | Gatineau Photographers
A few weeks ago I took some maternity photos of one of my best friends. We have known each other since we were kids and have grown up together, shared lots of laughs, attended each other’s weddings (I was her wedding photographer and she made my gorgeous wedding cake) and seen each other’s kids growing up. It was so nice to do her maternity photo session.
One thing that I love about my friend is her great fashion sense. She always has great boots and shoes, along with funky accessories. I told her that I wanted her to wear bright colours and funky boots, so she did not disappoint. And I LOVE her flair for being able to pull off wearing animal prints and look great. There is NO WAY I could.
I hope that you enjoy these maternity photos of this very fashionable lady. Enjoy. 🙂
If you’re pregnant and looking for an Ottawa maternity photographer, I would love to hear from you. Contact me to book your Ottawa / Gatineau maternity portrait session.
Maternity Photography in an Ottawa Winter Wonderland
Last weekend I had the pleasure to take some winter maternity photos of this great couple. They were real sports about trudging in the snow and getting the shots done–even if it meant no coat or mitts most of the time or walking in deep snow to get to THE SPOT for the best photo backdrop.
It was an absolutely GORGEOUS winter day. It had snowed a lot the day before, so the trees were covered in a blanket of white fluffy snow, while the ground was buried in several feet of snow in some areas. The skies were completely clouded over, which made for some beautifully diffused light. I was SO excited to be shooting these portraits on such a perfect day. This kind of weather is a photographer’s dream–at least it’s my dream. I had envisioned this winter photo session almost exactly how it turned out to be: fresh snow on the ground and on the pine tree branches, no wind and not too cold. It was only -5°C (which is pretty darn mild for Canadians east of BC.)
I look forward to photographing your little one after he/she born. Can’t wait!
Looking for a meaningful Christmas present? How about giving that special someone a gift certificate for portraits. The gift certificate never expires and it can be used for newborn, baby, child, family, maternity and cake smash portrait photography sessions or photography products. It can be in any amount that you choose.
Fall Maternity Photography at the Experimental Farm
Last week I shot a maternity photo session with a sweet lady at the Experimental Farm’s ornamental gardens. It was a gorgeous fall afternoon–warm and sunny. It was perfect weather and lighting for a fall photo shoot.
I can’t say enough how lovely the light was. I got some really beautiful maternity photos with dreamy light, beautiful flowers and fall leaves. I was really happy with the photos while I was doing the photo session and was even happier when I saw them in large size on my computer screen. I hope that you enjoy these maternity photos of this lovely lady.
Not all portrait sessions are created equal. What I mean by that is that each photographer has their own level of knowledge and expertise. Also photography equipment has various standards and quality levels. Having been professionally trained and having many years of experience in portraiture under my belt, I think that I’m pretty darn good at what I do (baby, child, family, wedding photography).
I want to let people know that one of the great products that I offer to my portrait clients are these really cute mini accordion albums. They make the perfect gift for grandparents as they come in two identical albums, or you can keep them for yourself to show as a mini brag book. They are small enough (3″x3″) to carry around in your purse and they also have a slip cover to protect them if you throw them in a bag with other things.

Experimental Farm Family Portraits (Ottawa portrait photographers)
Last month I photographed a nice little family at the Ottawa Experimental Farm. It was a gorgeous spring day, with lots of sunshine and warmth. I had scouted out the locations that I wanted to shoot a few days earlier and was excited to see one lone tree fully in bloom with gorgeous pink flowers all over it. When I first spotted it, I knew that I had to use it as a backdrop for portraits.
I hadn’t met this family until the day of the photo shoot when we met at the parking lot of the experimental farm. I had sent a clothing guide of what to wear and I was very happy that they were wearing clothes almost like the one in the guide. (I love it when people listen to my advice for photo shoots!) I was also very happy to see that this was a good looking pair, so they helped to make for some nice looking photos. The portrait session went well and I was able to capture some nice mother and son moments. I hope that you will enjoy viewing these photos of a great looking pair.
