Ottawa Family Photographer

Hit the pause button on life for a moment and allow me to capture the essence of your family as you are, in this very moment. Family photo sessions take place at your home or at an outdoor location. I can recommend some great spots within the Ottawa Gatineau area or we can meet at a location that has a special meaning for you and your family. Each session is unique, easy going, without any pressure to "perform". Be in the moment with your loved ones while I take care of the rest. 


Time passes too quickly. Before you know it, your newborn is going in to Grade 6 and you ask yourselves where the past few years have gone. Celebrate a milestone or a photo session just because - do it for you and for your family. So often we have tons of photos of our kids but don't have the opportunity to have photos of everyone together. 


I also offer custom quotes for extended family sessions which include more than your immediate family. If you are asking yourself what do I wear for my photo session?, I've shared my philosophy in a recent blog post. 

"Her photos captured the tiny details so beautifully...the ones that pass by so quickly and you need photos to remember that they were ever that small! She is approachable, sweet, kind and makes you feel comfortable in front of a camera."

"Thank you for an amazing experience. We all loved it and felt 

so comfortable that we can’t wait to repeat it next year."

                                                                                                 - Diana 

"One of the most impactful parts of photography is being able to capture that moment in time with those we love that we never want to forget. The emotion, the joy, the sorrow, the laughter, the feeling of being in that moment. Melanie does that naturally. Melanie’s ability to capture the emotion in those everyday simple, yet extraordinary life moments of people is truly special. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a photographer that will not only make you feel at ease but capture memories for a lifetime. She is wonderful!"
