Ottawa newborn photographer at an Orleans at-home session

As an Ottawa newborn photographer, I’m always excited to get inquires from soon-to-be parents about booking a newborn session with me…but when I got a message from Laura about taking newborn photos with her and her husband at their home in Orleans, I just about fell off my chair with excitement! You see, these two are a couple who I’ve come to know through my primary job as an Ottawa wedding photographer – having even photographed their winter wedding in 2020. But…2020 you say…must have been a ‘micro wedding’, right? Nope! Laura and Tom’s wedding snuck in right under the pandemic radar, and in February 2020 we were all still blissfully unaware of the COVID-19 storm headed our way. This probably adds to one of the many reasons why Laura and Tom’s wedding was one of my favourite events to date, but I can confidently say that it’s the people who were at that wedding which made it so incredible. Laura, Tom and their whole family are just so sweet and wonderful and I count my lucky stars that I can now call them friends.

So, knowing these two lovely souls were having a baby and that they were looking for an Ottawa newborn photographer made me so happy! And meeting their baby girl for the first time at their newborn session was the highlight of my week! Of course, if you know anything about Laura’s upbringing on her parent’s alpaca farm in Cumberland, then it should be no surprise to you that Daphne’s nursery was chock-a-block full of alpacas! So precious!

Without further ado, please enjoy these newborn photos with Laura, Tom, Daphne and (of course!) their dog Nala!
