Spring Time Photography- “In Studio” & Outdoor Family Photos, Ottawa Ontario

Spring is a great time for family photography. We can take advantage of the photography studio and then, make our way outdoors for some great nature/environmental style images. Even if the leaves are not out yet, our outdoor studio offers some beautiful backdrops all year long. Jennifer and her family live in Nunavut and were on vacation in Ottawa! They planned their family photo session and engagement session at the beginning of their vacation to give us time to print the images. At our studio, all post processing, retouching, printing, lamination and framing is done on site. This allows us to offer a rush service without having to cut on quality. By the end of their vacation, the photos were ready for pick up! Have a look at some highlights from their session.

Dedra – Modeling photography

Beautiful Dedra… We have had the great pleasure of photographing Dedra ever since she started dancing when she was a little girl…..And this girl can dance….she is incredible. She is now in Toronto, Ontario studding dance and wanted to work on her portfolio images. We had a lovely photo session at our photography studio in Cumberland, Ontario. We went from natural light to flash, changes set-up many times and just had fun. Since she can move so well, we elaborated on her posing skills and incorporated some dance moves in her portrait session. Here are some highlights of the photo session.

Baby & Family Photography studio in Ottawa Ontario

We first met Nancy and Johnny when we photographed their wedding in 2008. We printed an acrylic 10×10 flush mount album and entered it in the Professional Photographers Of Ontario competition in 2009. We won first place for the “best wedding album of the year in Ontario”. Since then, they’ve welcomed two beautiful baby boys into their family. Here is a look at the photos taken in our Ottawa “Cumberland” studio. We love to include the parents when we photograph new born babies and we also have many different props and settings to choose from… Here is a look at photos we did the salvati family!

Melissa & Jason – Engagement / Couple Photography in Ottawa

We love photographing couples. When we go on location, it’s usually because the couple wants an album or a signing book for their reception table. Knowing in advance the kind of product the couple will order, make us tailor the way we photograph during the session. Here is the layout for a 15 pages- 30 sides – vertical 8×12 metallic papers – Hard back cover book. All the images were taken downtown Ottawa, around the Byward market, the courtyard, Major Hill’s Park and York street.  We can’t wait to photograph their wedding in September 2012! Here are some highlights of their “on location” portrait session…

Mark is a musician at a local bar in Ottawa! He got the owners to open the doors early for some extra engagement photos… We had a blast photographing

them in an environment that meant a lot to them.. Using natural window light, we created dramatic looking images that capture the mood and love between them…

Jessica Hutchinson- Ottawa Model and Portfolio photography

Let’s just say Jessica has all the right moves! She’s beautiful, smart, funny, mature and her personality makes her photos shine! She knows what to do and when to do it in front of the camera. It’s was a wonderful experience to photograph her in our Ottawa ( Cumberland) photo studio and we wish her a lot of luck with her modeling career. Here is what Jessica had to say:

“When I was 13 I got noticed by an agency and they were ready to give me a scholarship because of the potential they saw in me but my parents thought that I was too young and I should have fun and not always be worried with adult stuff so the years went on and I’ve always thought that I would never have a chance like that ever again.
On my 17th birthday, my parents decided to give me a photo shoot at G.R. Martin photography studio. At first we agreed on a 45 min session and a couple of picture but it turned into a few hours and a whole album. The photographers (Guy, Julie and Joelle) reminded me that I have a lot of potential and that I should contact modeling agencies to get started in that field. I thought that was very flattering but didn’t put much effort into it. A month later, as I’m walking through the pharmacy, I get stopped by the owner of a Models International Management (Sophie) who tells me I she thinks I should enter this contest. At that point I just thought it was just one of those contests that you enter and then forget about. A month later I get a call that they want to see me at the agency where they announced I was the winner of the contest. I won a scholarship of $1,500.00 and a basket full of Benefit products. I am now at the beginning of my 18 week program and absolutely excited to see where this will bring me.

Jessica”

Andrée & Phil-Ottawa Engagement coffee table book album

A while back I posted images from Andrée and Philippe’s engagement session. Their wedding is next month, so, they are busy preparing all the details for that wonderfull wedding day. We produced an engagement coffee table book album for them, it’s an 8.5×11 horizontal book. What you see here is the full 22 inch spread when the book sits opened. These books are designed and  retouched by us and approved by the couple before it goes to press.  We can’t wait to post images from Andrée and Phil’s wedding day in Ottawa and at The Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel in Gatineau-Ottawa, Quebec.

Lachapelle family Photography – Ottawa outdoor studio

It’s this time of year again! Our outdoor studio is ready, almost every plant survived the long winter , did I say …long winter… We are now booking family sessions in June, Tuesday to Friday, 9h30 am to 5h30 pm, Wednesday nights until 8h00 PM and we still have a few opening for Saturday, june 18th. We also have a few Saturdays available in July and august. Call us at 613-824-8525 for more information.

I wanted to highlight a family session taken last year at our outdoor studio in Cumberland, Ontario. The Lachapelle family decided to dress in casual clothing with white tops and jeans, which are great for outdoor photos.  They were a joy to photograph. We laughed  a lot and took the time to photograph each family, kids, siblings and grandparents. The results were amazing!  A typical family session lasts about 1.5 hours. Have a look at some sample from the photo session!

Miller Family – Ottawa family photography

It’s dosen’t really look like spring yet, but, the snow will finaly melt soon ( we hope), because we already have families booked for outdoor sessions at our studio. This is an example of the  family photos we do around the pond. Nicole and Greg were the first at our studio to have a 24×36 wall size printed from our first canon 10D digital camera.  Now, 10 years later, they came back for an ” update” . They are a wonderful ” close” family and we always have fun photographing them.  Refering to the first session at the museum of civilisation ( see the photo at the bottom of the post) their daughter Emily took a photo of my husband Guy during the photoshoot with my camera. It’s a great photo of Guy with an umbrella covering his Mamiya RZ67, loking up at the sky waiting for the rain to stop. I still have this 8×10 in my room. Great job Emily! ( I’ll try to find it and post it soon)

Here is a look at their session.

Ryan Family – Ottawa family outdoor photography

December was a busy month getting all the photos printed in time for christmas! We printed, and printed and printed…and spent hours preparing and retouching each image individually. No detail is overlooked !  Looking back on all the photos I printed, I notice I have a lot more blog posts to do and I am sooooooo behind….

We already have bookings for family photos this summer and it made me think of all the photos we created that I did not have time to show you. Kim Ryan made sure the whole family would be there at the time of this photo session. This took a lot of planning and many months of phone calls and consultations, but, she made it happen. Photographed at our beautiful outdoor studio in Cumberland, Ontario, this family demonstrated a classic example of the types of sessions we love to do. The large group,  the immediate family, the grand-parents and each individual family and their kids.And above all, we have a lot of fun creating it 🙂 Plan to be here for a good 1h30 to 2 hrs because the pond and waterfall setting created a wonderful photographic experience and each family gets to enjoy the scenery while waiting for their turn. Here is a look at the beautiful photos we created for this great Orleans family.
