Blast from the Past

Another amazing family session!  We met up at a gorgeous park in Carleton Place and the weather was perfect (it wasn't looking that promising in the morning).  I actually lived on the same street as Mom when we were kids....it was so nice to see her and meet her beautiful family....they were so much fun!

I had a hard time narrowing the pictures down but here are a few (okay, maybe for than a few :)) of my favourites:

 Aren't these girls beautiful?!

 Mom and the girls

Doesn't this look like a Dad that feels loved?

The lovebirds

Fall Mini Sessions, October 1st and 3rd

I'm so excited to announce that I will be offering 1/2hr mini sessions on the morning of Friday, October 1st and the morning and afternoon of Sunday, October 3rd.

You may be thinking....What is a mini session?!
Mini sessions are quick and casual!

  • They're only 30 minutes in length
  • They're $75 (half the price of a full session)
  • They're done at one specific location of my choosing.  The tentative location will be at the Kanata Beaver Pond on Walden drive (I just have to confirm that the forest isn't going to be clear cut before then)
Receive approximately 10 proofs in your private online gallery.

Includes one complimentary 5x7 plus 25% off any additional prints.

Session fee includes up to 5 people

It's the perfect time to have portraits taken during one of Ottawa's prettiest and most photogenic months!  The timing also allows for use of the best images for Holiday cards and/or gifts for family and friends.

There are limited spots available so please contact me as soon as possible at michelle@barbeau.net or 613-599-0839 to book your session
