3rd time is a charm… Baby Photography


3 times Brigitte had to come to our Orleans studio from Gatineau, Quebec for Eva’s 1 year old photography portrait session. All her other kids were photographed on their 1st birthday , so this was a must. At Studio G. R. Martin, we have a very relaxed approach about children photography. If a child does not cooperate  the first time, bring them back until they do….Little Eva’s 3rd session was a charm !  Her mom never lost confidence in us and we never gave up either. This winning combination of determination and persistence made this image earn a well deserved 24×36 canvas in our gallery.

Baby & Children Studio Photography

In our Orleans, Ottawa indoor studio still located at 1439  Youville Drive ( we have not moved our indoor studio yet to 2080 Old Montreal Road), we love to photograph babies and kids. They are often one hour sessions filled with love and patience !!! In this set, we re-create a natural window light by placing 3  flashes behind the acrylic windows ( at f-11) and  one flash as a fill ( around f-5.6).

We also do baby announcement cards. This was baby # 3 for this ottawa family ( we also photographed their 2 girls when they were babies ), now that the family is complete, here is an example of a baby announcement card including all the kids.

Ottawa Dance Photography with Mary Kathryn & Emma

Dance Photography is a big part of our photography business. We love designing new dance backgrounds every year for the dance schools we photograph.  For years, we’ve been happy to provide our dance photography services to the following dance schools :  Leeming Danceworks , The Academy of Dance Arts , Ecole de Danse Louise , Dance R  Studio, Remix Dance  and  Le Dance Lab.. We have photographed the same kids for over 20 years now, and it’s great to see their evolution and also, the evolution of our photography and dance backgrounds.

Mary Katheryn and Emma Bohn attend Leeming Danceworks http://leemingdanceworks.com/2_classes.htm in Orleans, Ontario. We have been photographing them since the year 2000. Their mom Carol-Ann, a devoted “dance MOM”, dedicates tons of love and time for her daughters and made them each a scrapbook with all the dance photos we took over the years. When Emma came in to get her grade 6  graduation photos done, we spent time looking at their wonderful albums full of great  memories. I just had to take a photo to show all of you . Here it is:

 The Bohn family spends time  together during their summer vacation to make amazing albums. They carefully choose the scrapbooking materiel at Michaels – the arts & Crafts Store, then, add all the awards they won with the dance number. Here is a close up look at a few pages:

Great work and hope this inspires other dancers to do the same!!!

As Studio G.R. Martin is the Bohn’s official family photographers, I decided to show you a little preview of the photography we have done for the girls throughout the years.  It is always a joy to photograph them…

Cornwall Ontario Wedding Photography

It’s great to travel out of Ottawa for weddings, even if it’s only one hour away… We photographed Tanya & Jose’s wedding in Cornwall this past June.

Thanks Tanya & Jose for giving us this opportunity. Ottawa photographer in Cornwall ontario wedding photographyWe hope to photograph more wedding in Cornwall, Ontario.

Baby Photography

La photo de bébé en studio, c’est tellement beau. Nous aimons les arrières plan simple afin de mettre en évidence  le visage et les expressions de l’enfant. Gabriel fut un plaisir à photographier, quel beau bébé !

Baby Shower Party Photography

This was a baby shower photography challenge !

How do you do a photo of a group of 33 people  at a shower , without doing the typical grouping. Well, this is what I came up with ! This photo was sent to all the guests as a thank you for attending “cashew” baby shower in Ottawa. p.s. Cashew was born ” Adrienne” a few weeks later… I am looking forward to doing more baby shower photography !

Outdoor Free Style Family Photography at it’s best !!!

Fun, Fun, Fun… This describes Sherry & Keith’s family to a ” T” .What a great bunch. We photographed them on a cloudy/rainy saturday morning in July, at our new estate studio in Cumberland, but, the weather did not put a damper on their mood… they showed up and lit up our camera’s like a ray of light that bursts out of  the sky.

Who said:  No stipes, patterns or bold and flashy colors at the clothes consultation !!!  This is why we encourage consultations before any photography sessions. Our job is to make you look your best by creating the portraits that best represents you; your styles, your personality, your vision.  Thanks Sherry & Keith for helping us to think ” Out of the box” 🙂
