BeYou(tiful) L – Ottawa Portrait Photographer

Sometimes in my work, you make that connection with a client that just sticks and stays with you.  I met this beautiful woman four years ago at a fundraiser where we had donated a photography package. Her son Jacob has beaten all the odds and survived a rare form of cancer. I had the utmost pleasure to capture her family four years ago and that session has created a friendship that is truly special to both of us.

I am always of the mindset that Mothers need to be in more photographs for their children, we need to exist in photographs.  One of my main goals in starting the BeYou(tiful) sessions was to capture the beauty of all the women around me and help them exist in those photographs.  When Liliane contacted me to inquire about having some portraits done, I immediately shared with her the BeYou(tiful) session and how it would be a perfect fit for her.  We discussed and planned and we couldn’t be more happy with the outcome.

Capturing how beautiful this mother of three is was such a pleasure.  Our day was filled with pampering and glamour, lots of laughs and quite possibly a few tears (of JOY). Liliane took advantage of looking so amazing and headed out to dinner with her husband for a rare date night.

Beauty shines from within and you can truly see how beautiful Lilian is both inside and out.  Thank you for entrusting me with capturing you Liliane, you truly are beautiful.

A special thank you to our hair and makeup artist Michelle, who is not only beautiful, but amazing in her work.


We are booking session into late May, June and July. To book your BeYou(tiful) session contact us for dates and details. A true ‘Girls Day Out’ you will want to make a date for dinner because you will look and feel fabulous.
