Home Sweet Home | Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer

In home family sessions are perfect for those cold winter days, blah spring muddiness or simply as an alternative to an outdoor location. Some families find it stressful to get outside for sessions, so this option is a great way to still capture your family; in the comfort of your home. Family snuggles on the couch, love, playful moments. Your life - as you live it. Maybe you enhoy baking with your children. Let’s capture it! The messy fingers, flour smeared on their cheek, little licks of the batter fresh from the bowl. Perhaps crafting and painting is your jam? Great! Let’s do it! Chubby fingers grasping a paintbrush, poking holes in play dough, sneaking kisses in between gluing pom poms.

This sweet family chose to play. We hung out in their older son’s bedroom. The toddler roamed around, we did some reading, mama nursed the littlest and dad played with some fun toys. We ended the session with giggles on the couch downstairs.

Life with Boys | Ottawa Family Photographer

This sweet family belongs to my cousin. These two funny, charismatic, sensitive and energetic boys are her world. It’s kind of fun watching your childhood friend-cousin you grew up with wade through parenthood. It’s even more fun getting to capture their interaction. After our session I asked her a few questions to see what she felt. I love asking clients different questions as it either helps me grow or I can see things through their eyes.

1)    Looking through your images, is there one that stands out? What makes it special?

It’s hard to pick just one, but the one at the end in the field with F in my lap, they were starting to get tired and it really kind of captured our family dynamic.

2)    I know location was very important to you, were you happy with where we went?

I was so happy with where we went. I knew what kind of visual I wanted but you cultivated every single space at the location and the end result was beautiful.

3)    Do you feel your children were captured in their natural state? Id not, what could be different?

Almost too much! You’re seen all of F’s silly faces! It’s hard to get them to smile. But my favorite moments you captured when they didn’t know you were taking the picture, the little laughs, the secrets. It was great seeing those little moments captured.

4)    Was there an awesome moment during our session that was captured… which one?

After all we went through to get a nice picture by the beach the one of them on the stump is by far my unexpected favorite. I think you might even got a bit muddy in the bushes for that one but we had a laugh and saw some cool wildlife.
