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

I’m so excited for spring and warm weather! This is probably the first time ever I missed sunshine THIS MUCH and counted days until we can hide winter jackets away. I don’t even want to know how much money I spent buying flowers just to keep winter blues away and enjoy a pop of colour every morning I opened my eyes. My husband didn’t complain, though, because as a result he didn’t have to worry about buying them for me.

My daughter is also excited to get out of the house more often. This also means that we will be giving Paw Patrol a break and taking daily adventures to various parks, playgrounds and other fun places around Ottawa! We love to explore. Our best days are when we can discover something new we like, meet interesting people and take photos along the way. The latter is mostly me!

Since this is our first official spring and summer at the National Capital Region we welcome every single recommendation as to what a family with a two year old can and enjoy in Ottawa. If you have something in mind, don’t forget to leave a comment below.

Nonetheless, 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.


I am a Maternity, Lifestyle Newborn and Family photographer based in Kanata serving Ottawa and surrounding areas. My focus is documenting love and the journey of motherhood, including pregnancy through baby’s first year and beyond. I offer in-home and location photo sessions throughout the year creating timeless photographs based on your vision and my artistic style. I consider myself a lifestyle photographer, who tells a story in the most beautiful way possible, both through the use of my camera and through the use of posing, putting an artistic spin to capture both, authentic and staged, moments. If you love my work, let’s talk! Let’s be friends! I’d be honoured to be a part of your journey.
