Personal Brand Photography with Stephanie | Small Business Marketing | Ottawa

As a small business owner, I feel inspired when I am given an opportunity to work with someone who also decided to chase their passion and build a business of their dreams. Providing my clients with professional personal brand images that add value, help them grow their business and reach their goals is empowering. That said, recently, I met Stephanie of Sunnystorm Marketing and, today, I wanted to share some of my favourite images from her personal branding session. These lifestyle headshots, that you’ll see below, reflect who Stephanie is. She will use them for her website, social media accounts, e-books, sales pages and other marketing mediums to attract potential clients. We’ve had an amazing time getting to know each other and creating images that Stephanie envisioned for her brand.

EMILIE + STEVE IN-HOME MATERNITY SESSION | Kanata, Ottawa Maternity, Newborn and Family photographer

Even though the spring is just around the corner here in Ottawa and I am booking a lot of family sessions to be photographed outside on-location, I continue to love the uniqueness of each session inside a client’s home. As I am writing this sentence, I can feel goosebumps on my skin. That’s how powerful and in a way challenging in-home sessions are. And today I wanted to share this cozy maternity session I did for Emilie and Steve. I will be photographing their sweet baby girl soon and I simply cannot wait. I wish them an easy and blissful transition becoming parents and I hope when I visit them again for their lifestyle newborn session (or bump into somewhere at the grocery store since we are basically neighbours here in Kanata), they won’t mind me giving them a big hug and celebrating parenthood together.

Clara is 1! | SWEET & SIMPLE IN-HOME CAKE SMASH SESSION | Kanata, Ottawa Family Photographer

Turning one is always so much fun! It’s a milestone that everyone is so excited about. The best part is probably tasting the cake, sometimes for the very first time! Traditionally, the cake smash session goes one way or another: the little one loves the cake and doesn’t want to stop eating, or he/she wants nothing to do with it.

Clara was very lady like and decided to nibble on the cake and take her time. It’s like she was trying on purpose not to make any mess. Things changed when her brother Rory joined and showed her all the little tricks of cake smashing. It was so beautiful to watch them both have fun. Yesterday, it was the National Siblings Day and I thought of this session right away, because it was evident how much they mean to one another and how blessed they are to have a sibling.
