Kanata Family

I had a great time with this family at Walter Baker park.....it ended up being a beautiful sunny day!

The boys were kind enough to teach me a new "knock knock" joke....i'll have to remember to watch out for garbage on my head when someone knocks at my door  :)

the boys were getting tired of being models so we ended with some fun at the park

Fun at the Experimental Farm

I had the pleasure of photographing these adorable sisters back in June and was thrilled to get to do it again! (here's the link to their previous session: http://michellebarbeau.blogspot.com/2010/06/sisters.html).  They live down the street from the Experimental Farm so we thought it would be nice to check out the Ornamental gardens.  We had a great time exploring, smelling flowers and climbing trees.

Thanks for the wonderful morning girls!

My Big Brother

I did a mini shoot of my Brother's adorable family while at my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner.  A couple of people weren't overly cooperative (I won't say who but lets just say we were interrupting someone's time on the Wii machine :)).  My cute little nephew was being cooperative so we got lots of nice pictures of him...this will be a long post because he's just so sweet, look at those blue eyes and chubby cheeks!!

Miss You

I had the pleasure of photographing some old neighbours of ours.  They lived across the street from us for about 8 years and it was so nice to have another young couple around.  We ended up starting our families at the same time...our kids ended up getting along so well and a lot of people even think our daughters are sisters.  It's sad not to have them as close by anymore but at least they're only a 15 minute drive away and we get to visit them in there beautiful new house (and use there amazing pool :)).

Here are a few pictures of them at they're new place (well I guess it's not so new anymore :).  Miss you guys!

Trading Places

I've been loving all these wonderful family sessions and decided that it was my family's time to get in front of the camera.   It's hard to take pictures of myself so I ended up trading sessions with Ottawa area wedding photographer Lisa Craig of LNC Photography (http://www.lncphotography.com/).  It was so much fun to decide which outfits to wear and take my daughter on a girl's afternoon to get our hair done.

Here are a few pictures I took of Lisa's family and I can't wait to see the ones she took of us.  Thanks so much Lisa, we had a blast!  Hope you like them

isn't this location gorgeous?!  I love the Kanata beaver pond in the Fall!

Beautiful Day

We had a gorgeous day for the Fall mini sessions!  The weather was beautiful and so were the families...I love my job!

Here are some pictures of the winner of my Free session.  Thanks so much Melissa, I had a wonderful time and I hope you love the pictures as much as I do!

 I thought it was so sweet how he put his hand up...he sure loves his Mommy!

There's something about seeing a Father play with his son....it just makes my heart melt!
