  • WELCOME TO MY BLOG!

    My name is Kim and if you are reading this then there is a good possibility that I will be your photographer. A little bit about myself...I am located in Embrun, I am a mom to four little ones and I love taking photographs! Engagements, weddings, maternity, newborns, families...I enjoy them all. I prefer to work with natural light to capture you, your day, your family as casually as possible. Enjoy browsing through my work...

ADAM & ERIN’S DOWNTOWN OTTAWA ENGAGEMENT SESSION ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

What can I say about this engagement session? Adam and Erin are the sweetest people! And the fact that they wanted their dog Lola to be included (I also have a furry Lola at home!) completely won me over! Their first date was at the Aulde Dubliner in the Ottawa market so that’s where we started our session. We didn’t anticipate just how busy the market would be on a Sunday evening in June so we quickly moved onto some other locations…downtown Ottawa has so much to offer! It was an easy, fun session and I’m so excited to capture their wedding in Perth this Fall 😉

They are very beautiful. I have 2 favourites. The one you to sitting with Lola. The other is just you Erin’s sitting and looking at Adam.

KYLE & LAUREN GET MARRIED AT ORCHARDVIEW ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I met with Kyle and Lauren last Spring for engagement photos and to get a feel for each other (I always recommend this!) and knew they would be comfortable with me and in front of the camera for their big day.

All events took place at Orchard View Wedding & Event Centre…the property surrounding the venue is SO pretty! Lauren and her bridesmaids were already at the venue when I arrived…it is always fun to meet up with a new group of ladies! I spent time with them as they got ready before heading outside to meet up with Kyle and his group of guys. They were a breeze to work with and I was able to return to Lauren’s room in time to see her garter being put on…the same garter worn by her Bubbe many years earlier. I love when family heirlooms can be passed on!

The ceremony was lovely and had traces of Jewish tradition throughout, including each male guest wearing a kippa. The ceremony ended with Kyle breaking a glass under the beautiful Chuppah.  When Lauren first contacted me she mentioned that it was to be a Jewish meets Irish Catholic wedding and that she expected a constant full dance floor…and that’s exactly what she got! It was a fun day from start to finish and I’m so happy I was chosen to share in their special day!

A NAVAN ENGAGEMENT SESSION WITH PUPPY ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

We had the prettiest light for this engagement session! And they had the cutest little pup to keep things lively! Christine said that she wanted the focus to be on their sweet Chloe and their relationship with her…I think we did all that and more. She made it into almost every photo, with just a quick break to hide from the smoky campfire! I hope you love these images as much as I do!

CAROLYNE & DAVE GET MARRIED IN NEWINGTON ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Carolyne and I go back to when she was a bridesmaid and I was the wedding photographer. Shortly thereafter she contacted me to see if I was available for her wedding on Labour Day weekend 2017. It was to be at her parent’s expansive property and the ceremony outdoors with a tent reception. All I heard was “space and natural light!” So of course I said YES!

The property was A-MAZING! As I drove down the long driveway I couldn’t believe my luck…I was getting to spend the day shooting in this beautiful location and with a great group of ladies. It’s always fun to work with people you’ve photographed in the past…there is an ease and comfort level amongst everyone, which leads to great images.

The ceremony was lovely and once it was done we hopped in our vehicles and headed to a private property for wedding party photos and then some solo images of the Bride and Groom. The weather was perfect – warm and sunny – and we were able to capture some gorgeous images before heading back to the reception.

Now the reception…the tent was set-up so beautifully that I could have photographed it forever! Swaths of cream, peach and gold fabric were everywhere and coordinated so perfectly with the table settings and Carolyne’s massive bouquet (www.kellysfloraldesign.com). It really was a sight to behold! There was also an outdoor area with tables, casual seating and warm blankets for those guests who wanted to sneak away for a conversation or quiet time.

Just before the sun began to set, Carolyne, Dave and I snuck away for a few minutes. The images of them, her parent’s property and the sunset as a backdrop, are some of my favourites ever taken. They turned out perfectly…just like the entire day. Thanks again Carolyne and Dave for choosing me to capture your wedding xo

MATERNITY MINI SESSION ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

Julie contacted me at the very last minute to see if I could do a quick maternity session for her. I was honoured because a returning client is a wonderful compliment. I was also completely caught off-guard because we literally live a 1 minute walk from each other and I had no idea she was expecting! During the summertime it can be difficult to fit in a last minute session but, as luck would have it, my travel plans were delayed and I was able to meet with this adorable family. The light was perfect and you’d never know that it was bedtime for her 2 year old…she was a superstar! We were able to get some beautiful images…thanks for trusting me with your memories Julie xo
