In the end of February I had the opportunity to photograph a lovely couple in Ottawa. We decided to make a short family vacation out of it as well. So, my husband, daughter & I packed up the car & headed for the capital. We were hoping to be able to check out the canal and perhaps lace up some skates, but due to the very mild winter the Rideau canal was only open for just over a week this year. In any case, we had a lovely visit & stayed in the Byward Market, visited with my sister-in-law as well as a great friend & checked out the sites. I went to Carleton University in the mid 90’s & hadn’t been back to Ottawa since, so it was great to be able to visit again.

Richard & Louise are a lovely couple who were married at the Chateau Laurier over ten years ago…this was each of their second marriage. It was a beautiful wedding & reception from what they told me, however they never had proper wedding photographs or portraits. So I am very happy that they finally have some photographs of the two of them! It was such a pleasure photographing Richard & Louise…even though it was fairly chilly that day in downtown Ottawa, we all had a blast. I even got to use my French again!

Most often my portrait clients come to me. Each year we have portrait clients coming from across Canada, the United States & Europe. I am so honoured to photograph their families while they are here in the Simcoe County &  Muskoka regions or visiting Toronto. However, I also love to travel, so let me know if you are thinking of portraits and you are not in our local region, give us a call at the studio & we can see if it is possible to travel to you. Now that my daughter is a bit older, I will be accepting a few destination weddings & portraits again each year.
