Ottawa Valley Winter Mini Sessions

New to Erin Egan Photography: Ottawa Valley Mini Sessions!

The idea is that you come to a predetermined location, do a quick 20 minute session with me and you get four images on CD to use how you please. Cost would be very affordable. It would be the weekend of Dec 7-8, either Saturday or Sunday afternoon (weather dependent).  You'll have your images quickly, just in time for holiday cards or gifts.

I would need at least 4 families to participate to make it happen.  Email me if you're interested, and please share with your friends and family.


 This is the location:

What perfect models these ladies were! It was a pleasure to capture "now" for them.

Kriegers at the Shaw Woods

I was delighted when Kristen (an awesome repeat client - see here and here) suggested we do this year's family photo session at the Shaw Woods.  This family is so fun and easy going.  Ashton and Kyla are awesome - smart, fun, and great listeners!

Shaw Woods is an Outdoor Education Center in Ottawa Valley that that features and old growth forest and a network of walking trails, among many other things. It's simply a treasure to visit.  They have a school program, too, which has allowed practically every student in Renfrew County to visit and learn about our environment.

I love to photograph newborns.  I think they're my all-time favourite.  Especially healthy, chubby, sleepy, cuddly newborns like Edith.  Edith had a headstart on most of us. She was over 10 lbs at birth. (Her mom is a superhero, by the way.)

She has one very proud big sister.

You might recognize this family. They're good friends and repeat clients.  Check out their other sessions here and here.  I kind of like looking back at the older sessions to see how people have changed and how I've grown as a photographer.

And my favourite idea ever for a turkey-sized baby on Thanksgiving day:
This was the baby's mother's idea, by the way. She gets *all* the credit.

Gigi & Lexi

I had the honour of photographing these two beautiful sisters a couple of weeks go. When I saw these girls in their dresses and their adorable, sparkly, converse shoes, I admit, I kind of wished I had a daughter.

Kim & family

Kim's a friend of mine. I brag all the time about this fantastic arrangement we have where we babysit eachother's kids when we need a date with our husbands. (Our own husbands, not eachothers... it's not that kind of arrangement.)

Their kids have the most expressive faces ever. So much laughter, so much kindness, so much fun in this family!

Kim happens to be an advocate for mental illness and is a professional speaker on the topic.  I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to attend one of her events because just talking one-on-one about her story is pretty awesome.  She's smart and funny...very funny...and talks so easily about a difficult topic in a way that is so approachable, you can't help but want to hear more.
Check her out here.

Izack & Family

We had the pleasure of photographing Corinne and Eric's wedding last June.  Which reminds me, I need to share some photos from that very fun, very wet day.

My wedding package includes a complimentary engagement session.  Since there wasn't a lot of time available right before the wedding, I offered to swap the engagement session for a family session at a later date.  This was perfect since it allowed their adorable son, Izack to take center stage!  What a ham!  He literally said hello to every stranger he met in the park. 

This session was really fun because the weather was beautiful and the park at Fort Chambly was gorgeous. The squirrels were very.... friendly, even venturing right between me and this family!
