I love photographing my friends and have had the honour of photographing this family since their eldest son was 10 months old. It was a beautiful day for our session and thankfully the day didn’t bring the bitter cold that we’ve come to expect of Ottawa winters.

I always love sessions close to sunset because the light is perfect and there is really nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman. Using nature’s own backdrop only acts to highlight that beauty even more. There was a lot of laughter during this session and I’m so grateful that my friend trusted my vision for her session. I can’t wait to meet this little girl and get the chance to hold her.

Two of our family sessions have taken place on drizzly days so it was nice to have the sun shining for a change. I love getting the chance to photograph moms and dads alone without their children, especially when it’s the second or third pregnancy. I love how the weather and the noise for nearby children fades away when it’s just the two of them; stepping back and using a telephoto lens gives them a chance to talk and laugh without me close by. Those intimate moments are to be cherished and I’m honoured to be able to capture.
