Creative couples portrait taken in natural light in Ottawa


Capturing genuine moments, emotions and connections

Lifestyle photographer - for singles, couples, families, events

"Pose" can feel like one of those bad "4 letter words" sometimes, but it doesn't have to be!

Having your portrait taken doesn't have to be stressful. The hardest part of the shoot should be deciding what you want to eat for breakfast, or do you want extra foam on your coffee latte! For everything to do with the portrait shoot, I will guide you through what you need to know: what to wear, what is an ideal location, how do you get there and where to park and, most importantly, how to pose ... I will guide you into starting poses but then I will use prompts to get genuine reactions, laughs, interactions, moments. The goal is for you to forget that you are in front of a camera so that you can have fun, enjoy the moment and come away with natural looking portraits. I will also be sure to take the usual posed portraits also, so that you have a variety of images to choose from.

Check out my Gallery of Portraits. None of the people here are professional models. And many of them felt a bit awkward to start with, but with my guidance you can see the joy, fun and connections that we achieved. I can do that with you too!
