1st Dance Class – Editorial Photography

To discover through the eyes of a child… I often wish I could be there again! First steps, first words, first birthday, first fall, first everything. Imagine being in a dance class for the very first time and they tell you mommy or daddy can’t stay because it’s for kids only! As a photographer first, but also, a dance teacher since I was 15 years old, I have been ” Miss Julie – their first dance teacher” many times. It is a privilege and an honor to influence and help a child grow..in every sense of the word. I asked Joelle to come to my  dance class and take a few photos so I could remember forever how great it feels like to make a difference 🙂

In Studio Ottawa Family Photography

Photography is all about emotion, love feelings. Looking at a picture brings the people you love alive in your heart. Mom and her two twin boys were photographed in our studio. We chose a classic setting to bring out the facial features and give the portraits a timeless look. We also did a series on the lighter background to show the families unity and strong emotional connection. Here are a few photos from their session

Ottawa Family Photographer “On location” in St Lucia, Caribbean Islands

Cruising in the caribbean ocean can be the best vacation ever, especially if you are a photographer and are commissioned to photograph a destination wedding!   Well, for Joelle, it did not stop there, she had to keep shooting. Gillian, Steve and and little Noah were part of the wedding party and took this opportunity to have their photo’s done in St Lucia. They asked a cab driver to bring them to a quiet beach with a lot of mature vegetation that provide a lot of shade…..mmmm, they ended up at the busiest beach with absolutely no shade 🙂 Well, the biggest challenge for a  photographer  is lighting. Early afternoon is not easy, but, we have to find ways to make every “on location” session work …and make it back to the ship on time:) Great job Jo!

Ottawa Studio Family Photography

Mrs. Michaud  and her two girls were funny, relaxed and very READY for their photography session. We photographed her oldest daughter Savanna when she was 16. Her photos were stunning, so stunning that we entered her close-up glamour image in photography competitions ( Professional Photographers of Canada and Ontario) . Now, it’s the girls that just want to have fun and have beautiful souvenirs. We love photographing this type of session because we can have fun and still get the job done. I have to say the funniest moments of the photo session was when Miki started giggling….and could not stop…ever:)

Three little miracles, Camille, Isabelle & Sophie  are 7 weeks old today. Tiny feet, tiny hands, and already, big personalities.

At this moment, we become fulfilled as artists and ,a normal day at the studio just became amazing… That’s what it’s all about!

Baby fever is coming soon at Studio G.R. Martin Photography! More details to come.

These sessions last on average 2 hours . Call us for more information at 613-824-8525. Here are a few proofs from a lifestyle photography session at an Ottawa home.

Sweet Sixteen Ottawa Photography

Beautiful Katii ! Sweet sixteen ! Put all this together and this is what you get 🙂 Katelyn saw a photo that my buddy, “fellow awesome photographer James Hodgins in Sudbury” you can connect to  his BLOG here, did for a competition and fell in love with the idea of the girl and the lollipop. So, on her sixteeth birthday she did a trip to the hairdresser and arrived at our studio all pretty in pink. Joelle did a fabulous job at capturing Kate’s fun personality and beauty. Happy sweet sixteen!  Here is a sneak Peak!

It’s a Girl! Ottawa Studio Baby Photography

Here is another beautiful baby girl we photographed in our photo studio. We took her brothers photos at the same age a few years ago. The parents wanted to match the other background ( it was brown), so, I went shopping and found some brown fabric with an interesting texture. For the last photo, I used bamboo straws from “Micheals”, painted them brown and tied each end to make it look like a crib. Here are samples of the images the parents enlarged ( the last one is a beautiful wall size- it looks amazing)

Outdoor Children Photography – Ottawa Lifestyle sessions

This is a preview of a book we are designing for our new “Lifestyle family portrait sessions”. They include a two hour minimum photo session in our studio or at the location of your choice and a large 40 page coffee table book. These books tell a story, a little like this one we are creating. It’s the story of ” a day in the life of a three year old”. Our goal is to capture your child’s many expressions and  true personality  in a series of events and playtime.  A consultation is a must to make this story telling book a success. Stay tuned for highlights of this finished book in a few weeks!

On Location Candid Family Photography

Caroline and her kids were a joy to photograph. We went in their backyard and our mission was simple; it’s all about the moment….not the pose. Sometimes a great image doesn’t have to be all perfectly poses. In this case, we were matching a photo her husband had done 10 years ago with his 2 children. This choice of clothes matches this sepia image very well. Consultations are the key to a successful portrait photo session!
