  • 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...

JANICE & LINDSAY ELOPE AT THE ARBORETUM ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I am going to keep my speech short and sweet because these images speak for themselves…they are stunning! We were only together for a short time (less than 2 hours altogether) but I was able to capture more than enough to illustrate what an amazing day this was for them.

Janice contacted me a month beforehand and asked if I was available for a last minute elopement in Ottawa. She said it would just be her, her fiancée and their close friends. She also said it would be outdoors. All of my favourite things! It was the smallest gathering I have ever attended but it was also one of my favourites. Such a small group of people means we have the chance to chat and take our time.

Ottawa Tulip festival weekend can cause some serious parking issues and traffic delays but in the end it all worked out and the images capture the love and beauty of these two brides. Janice & Lindsay thank you SO much for trusting me with your big day. Wishing you both much love and happiness!

CAROLYNE & DAVE’S WINTER ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN THE FOREST ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I met Carolyne last Fall when I was the photographer at a wedding for her good friend and she was in the bridal party. Little did I know that Carolyne would soon be planning her own wedding. When she reached out to see if I was available to be her photographer I was honoured…it is always flattering when someone you have worked with in the past asks you to capture their special day.

Carolyne and her fiancé Dave brought along their adorable fur baby, Boss, to include him in some engagement shots. The weather and the forest setting were perfect for this session and the images turned out beautifully.  I am very excited for their outdoor wedding next September…it will be awesome!

WINTER MATERNITY SESSION IN OTTAWA ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL, OTTAWA MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

This session is SO pretty I can barely contain myself! Marie contacted me for a maternity session and was willing to brave the cold Ottawa morning (along with Jeremy) to capture some beautiful, snowy images. They were amazing in front of the camera! This is such a special time and I was thrilled that they allowed me to capture these memories for them. Wishing them the best of luck with the next chapter in their lives!

EMILY & ADAM’S FALL WEDDING ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I’ve been wanting to get this wedding posted for weeks now and I know Emily is eagerly awaiting my blog update…so here we go!

Emily contacted me at this time last year in search of a wedding photographer. After chatting and booking me she came up with a great idea…instead of an engagement session she wanted a full family session as a gift to her mom, Judy. So not only would Emily and Adam get a few pre-wedding images but I would meet the entire family including the pets. Brilliant! When their big day arrived it was comforting to know that we had already established a relationship.

October weddings can be beautiful…but the weather is always a gamble. While nothing can be done to change the forecast, that doesn’t stop me from checking the weather every hour. Emily was prepared for rain. And she was also determined to have an outdoor ceremony. Mother Nature must have taken pity on us because by the time we arrived at Century Wedding and Events the skies had cleared. By the time we arrived at Watson’s Mill in Manotick for more formal photos the sun was out in full force. And it was gorgeous!

The ceremony was held at a beautiful venue, made even more special by the laughter that accompanied the celebration from start to finish. Emily and Adam obviously adore each other. Better yet they have fun together. What a wonderful combination! Thank you for choosing me to spend the day with you and your loved ones. Wishing you many years of happiness!

FALL SUNSET MATERNITY SESSION AT THE BOG ~ EMBRUN, RUSSELL & OTTAWA MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

I’ve been wanting to blog about this session since I came home and downloaded the images! Everything about this was perfect…the bog boardwalk location, the family, the light! It still amazes me that in an hour timeframe the sky can be so beautifully diverse.

As the mom to 4 little people I know that photographing kids can be challenging. Especially in cold November temperatures. And at sunset when little people are supposed to be having dinner and getting ready for bed. But this little guy was a welcome exception. Not only did he participate in almost the entire session but he graced me with plenty of smiles. Such a gorgeous, genuinely nice family. Wishing them plenty of happiness as they get ready to welcome their newest addition this month.
