Yesterday we had a super fun time taking pictures and hanging out with Andrea and Jamie and their beautiful family. You guys rocked! (literally!)

Raven and Scout, I am totally in awe of how you truly shined! I really admire your carefree spirit and curious nature. You both have such a strong and beautiful spirit, so don’t ever change!

Thanks so much, Andrea and Jamie, for being yourselves, you guys are a wonderful couple and such cool parents! Your family has so much personality and you guys have such a strong connection and love for each other it totally shows. We love you guys!

Hope you enjoy these images from your session and we can’t wait to show you the rest!

What a perfect way to end the long weekend! Wow, I am absolutely glowing about today’s photo sessions. We had two photo shoots today, one with Bryanna and Shannon and the other with Sara.

Girls, I am so proud of you all and what wonderful personalities you have. You girls had so much fun and your expressions are contagious! Thank you so much for being yourselves and for allowing us to capture your spirit. I love that you are all so different yet have such a young fresh attitude about you and that your beauty truly is from the inside out.

And moms, thank you for trusting us, and for your enthusiasm and support. You both have done such a wonderful job, and being a mom is such a tough job! (and I’m a mom, so I can say this!) You all made our job so worth it! Okay, can I say it again? I am so proud of you girls!

Although we will still be working on the rest of your photos, we wanted to show you a few images from today’s sessions.

much love,


ps. stay tuned for Molly 🙂

Our new Ottawa Photography Blog

It’s been a very busy few weeks for us and we are finally getting ready to launch our “Lifestyle” website! We are very excited and can’t wait for the fun to begin…

We have gotten lots of great feedback about our weddings site, but wanted our lifestyle portrait site to have it’s own focus and attention. It’s going to be fresh and new and full of fun pictures we are moving to this new lifestyle site.

Our Lifestyle photography is all about you! We want to be there to capture your personality and passions. The Lifestyle Session can be portraits in any stage of your life: we want to document it and capture you being you! Our typical sessions can range from maternity, baby, children, teens, to highschool and university and can be as varied as you make it.

We are also looking forward to lots of great Lifestyle sessions this summer and can’t wait to show you more.

So, when you get to our splash page you’ll have the option to check out our wedding site, lifestyle site, or our blog! (our blog will still have most of the current things we are working on and gives us a place to connect with you, so feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think!) Be sure to check out this new Lifestyle site!

Hey :[SALTED]:

Wow. My ears are still ringing! But you know what? There is NO better way to watch a concert than up on stage with the band – camera in hand!

You guys rocked the house friday night and I was swept up by the energy of your live show. (I’m sure the audience will agree!) Though I enjoyed all the songs in the set, I think my fav song of the evening was “Love Mysteries”. JC, you’re such a smoothie. 😉

Anyways, I’ve just started working on your images and I can’t wait for you to see them. To give you a little taste of what’s to come, I’ve created a small teaser for you guys.

Please be patient with the download times:

Hey guys.

I bet you’re wondering who that guy with the camera was at your show last Sunday. Well, I’m one of your new biggest fans! I met Denis at the door and he invited me in to have a listen to the show and take some pictures. You guys totally rocked! I love the version of Helter Skelter you did. And what was the song before that? I really liked that one as well! Sorry, I didn’t catch the whole show, but I will definitely try to make it out again.

In the meantime, here are some pics of you guys.
