Saray Family Session | Windsor Park, Ottawa

Drew, Mike and their teddy bear look-alike dog, Scooter, were already a family of three. Then came Mason: an adorable baby boy with endless facial expressions and a spirit that could melt anyone's heart. According to mom and dad, Scooter and Mason took to each other immediately and became instant friends. It only seemed right to include Mason's furry "sibling" in our fun, outdoor shoot.

The portrait session took place at Windsor Park, a location of special significance for these new parents. These are Drew’s old stomping grounds, near her family home, where she spent a lot of her time, growing up. This particular park is also where Drew and Mike chose to have their wedding photos taken, photographed by none other than our very own Andrew Geddes.

Now they return to celebrate the birth of their son; building yet more layers of memories. Congratulations to the Sarays; I was so happy to capture a family whose hearts are so full of love and joy!
