gatineau ottawa newborn photography {baby Joey}

Earlier this month I was able to photograph some friends with their new baby. This is one of the families in the kissing picture, taken while baby Joey was still cookin'. One of the nicest things about this photography venture has been the opportunity to photograph so many of our friends here in Gatineau. Luckily we have some good looking friends! *wink*

It was difficult impossible for me to narrow these down to just a few images, since I know and love these people. So you all get to see A BUNCH.

These two make BEAUTIFUL children together! My Simon is buddies with the little guy in front.

Awww, I love you guys!

Is it cruel of me to like taking pictures of pouty/crying babies? They're always some of my favourites.

And, again, here's a little slideshow of some of my favourite images. If you're reading in a reader, you might have to click through to see it. Only 30 seconds long and TOTALLY worth it (in my not-so-unbiased opinion).

Create your own video slideshow at

Can I ask what you think of these videos? I haven't bothered to pay for a full subscription (which would let me make videos longer than 30 secs and also have access to some other design/editing options). It's only $30/year, but I'm thinking I should maybe wait until I have more clients booked to see if it's something they'd even want. Would you want a video slideshow of images from a photo shoot, or would you rather make one yourself? I'd love your feedback.

(Also, if you have a few minutes to spare, would you mind heading over to my sister's blog, Life with the Dead List, to congratulate her on finishing her last final... on her way to becoming a funeral director. (I know. Weird.) Actually, maybe we should save our congrats UNTIL WE KNOW IF SHE PASSED.)


  1. Again, like always, love your pictures. And, I really do enjoy watching the videos. The graphics and editing are really high qaulity and I was thinking that it would be fun to have the slide show for later on in life, graduation, wedding, maybe earlier on in life at a baptism or dedication. Anyway, you don' good! Love the music choice!

  2. thanks for you vote of confidence, amy JOANNA!!!

  3. BEAUTIFUL photos! The one of the three siblings is my fave. Nice work, Amy!

  4. Breathtaking. Do you use any tools to help with lighting and flashes or is it mostly natural light?

  5. some of my fave pics of my daughter are the ones where she is cranky or crying... I think they are soooo cute! I have no idea why!

    I love your pics... I love the black and white!
