Ottawa Maternity Photographer | Carley and Shawn

Last week I got to visit with Shawn and Carley in Williamsburg Ontario. I had such a great time meeting them and hearing about their excitement for parenthood. And as the daughter of a mechanic, I will never grow tired of photographing a mechanic's hands.

Shawn and Carley are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their first born son. And if they love him as much as they love each other - that will be one lucky little boy!

Ottawa Baby Photographer | Zahra Month 9

This girl. THIS GIRL. This girl will move mountains. If she chooses to. She may play hockey, football, and baseball like her Mama. She may be a ballerina. She may be both. One thing is certain, the whole world is at her feet. And her presence makes it a better place to be. 

You may recognize Zahra's mom from this blog - she's no other than our favourite Auntie Rishma (who is in charge of teaching Mac all about sports).

Scroll down to see how she rocked her pettiskirt at 5 days old and again at 9 months old. And those eyelashes? As the woman who has applied her mother's make-up for the last 20 years, I can confidently say that those came from her mom!

Interested in your own Smiling Baby Package? We have a really amazing introductory price of $200 (plus HST). Also, for a limited time, get a $50 print credit when you book your shoot between 10 AM and 1 PM Monday to Friday. Each package comes with 25 high resolution images with print release. Smiling Baby Sessions are done between 3 and 12 months. See our gallery HERE.

Ottawa Maternity Photographer | Lindsay and Steven

In the past I haven't really used this blog much to showcase my photoshoots. Truth be told, by the time I finish editing one, I'm usually feeling such a rush to get started on the next one. But, starting now, I'm going to make more of an effort to get my shoots blogged before moving onto the next session. This is perhaps an easier promise to make at the beginning of wedding season. Wish me luck!

Lindsay and Steven's maternity session was such a joy to shoot and edit. It was sweet and loving. It was fun and silly. It was an enjoyable walk through the woods with lots of stops for photos. Lindsay even channelled her inner Cinderella and fed some chickadees from her hand.

Their dog Monte, a rescue potcake pup, came along for the fun. I'm certain he's going to make a pretty fantastic big brother. And with these two fun-loving folks as parents, that is one lucky kid in there!

And this is why I don't sleep.



9:45 PM: Kid is asleep. Wife is asleep. Work is done. I'm totally going to go to bed early and get a full night's sleep. Maybe I'll just check Facebook. Oh look I have memories. On this day in 2009 I was listening to Vienna Teng. I should see if she has any new music out. City Hall is such a beautiful song. Maybe I'll listen to it while I get ready for bed. Oh I almost forgot how sweet this song is. It's so moving. I could cry thinking of all those gay folks going down to city hall to get hitched. I wonder if she's gay? I'll check her Wikipedia page. It doesn't say anything about her personal life. I'll check her website. Hmm, nothing there either. OK, I'll just google "Is Vienna Teng gay?" Here's an article about straight musicians writing songs about gay people on AfterEllen. They aren't listing Vienna Teng but it came up in the google search so I'll just search the page. Oh, OK, her friend wrote in the comments: "Vienna is straight, but is very supportive of the gay community and not just because I'm in her life. I'm incredibly proud that she continues to care about issues that affect our community and uses her platform to trumpet them." OK, question answered. But, while I'm here, I might as well see what other songs are listed. OMG Pink Triangle by Weezer. That song was on my first "gay songs" mixed CD. Remember mixed CDs? I wonder what kids do nowadays? Do they send each other playlists to express their feelings? Did I really just say "nowadays?" OK Gramma, time for bed. But maybe I'll just quickly check what other songs were on that list. Jens Lekman - "A Postcard to Nina." A song about a guy who agrees to be his lesbian friend's boyfriend to keep her dad from finding out she's gay. That sounds cute. Let's listen to that. OK this song and video are entirely adorable. I'll just listen to it 16 more times.

 

Who is Jens Lekman? I should google him. And follow him on Twitter. Maybe Facebook too. So many good artists come from Sweden. It would probably be a cool place to visit. Sweden. Ikea. Hey I wonder if Ikea has chairs that will go with our new dining room table? I should just quickly check their website...

.... and this, my friends, is why I don't sleep.

It's Hard to be the Child of Photographers

It's hard to be the child of photographers. Every time you turn around there is a camera in your face. You can't even have a simple tea party without your mom moving the teapot around for the best shot.


And even when one mom says she's done (finally)...


...your other mom needs "just one more shot."


But when you are sick, and stuck inside for days on end, having photographer moms can come in handy. Because they have access to giant sheets of seamless paper. One side might be covered in baby drool but if you flip it over there's lots of room for art. And that kind of makes up for being stalked by the mamarazzi all the time. 

Until art time also turns into photo time. 


And she makes you colour upside down so that she can "get better light." 






But if you look up at your camera-holding mom, make your eyes as wide and sad as you can, and say "Ma, can you stop taking pictures for today and colour with me?" she will put down the camera and color with you. So maybe it's not so hard to be the child of photographers afterall.
