running in circles | ottawa children's photographer

One of my favourite things to do during a shoot with little one's is to hold their hand and get them to run around me in circles. 
Pure glee captured for posterity's sake.

simple pleasures

Dear Maya - Something as simple as being able to draw on our patio doors had you entertained and happy for hours. And that made your papa and I happy for hours. You couldn't believe that it was actually OK for you to draw on glass and kept looking at us to make sure it was ok and returning to your artwork with such glee. We must have heard a few hundered "mama, papa, seeeeee" last night. We love you and all your joy so very much little one.

p.s. while we're on the subject of independently owned Canadian businesses; Maya's beautiful moccasins are from Ulla + Viggo.

etsy love

Beautiful people, be sure to check out Pachena Coastal Clothing for your Christmas shopping. The artwork is absolutely stunning; as is the quality. AND it's an independently owned Canadian shop.

ost: doesn't remind me

you know when you hear a song on the radio that you completely forgot ever existed and it takes you right back to an amazing summer spent with the boy you love. and that boy you love is now your husband and the father of your children and he's right next to you handsome as ever.
it's pretty damn sweet.
ahhh the summer of 2005...
