Spring Photo Sessions

Walk in the Woods-19.jpg

Hi There,

I would like to invite you to come and play with me. I love meeting families for a walk in the woods to take beautiful family photos, to be cherished for a lifetime. Please have a look at your options and do get in touch :)

Happy Spring!

 My signature session 

This session starts with a pre-session phone consultation.  This is where we discuss your vision for your images. It’s where questions can be answered and seeds planted for a wonderful time together.  The session itself takes about 60-90 mins.  


Fletcher Park in Ottawa, is a beautiful place for a walk and family connection. The weeping willows, ponds, trees and ducks make for stunning photos, with lots of room to run around and have fun. 

 Val-Des-Monts, My Studio in the Woods is a beautiful 30 min drive from Ottawa.  I have access to 400 acres of land with a stream, and a lake. The scenery is awe inspiring and it makes for a beautiful backdrop for family photos. 

***If you have a special location in mind, that works as well.

 The Flow of the Session

I specialize in genuine family connection and emotion, rather than stiffly posed pictures with fake smiles.  Sessions begin with us walking together and we let the story unfold. Sometimes children want to run and play, other times they are shy and want to snuggle with parents.  We let things evolve organically and naturally.  Ideally, we end up with a mixture of shots; whole family shots, kids together, kids separately, kids with each parent and parents alone. 

Session Premiere

Approximately three weeks after the session, it’s time for the session premiere.  We’ll meet to watch your gallery, and download your photos to your mobile app. We will discuss your favourite photos and talk about options for photo books, canvas prints, prints and more.  

The above link "view gallery" gives you an idea of the gallery that can be created for your family and also the style of photography that I shoot.
