Everyday Play - Family Session at the Ornamental Gardens

The experimental farm grounds here in Ottawa is one of my all time favourite locations to shoot at. The arboretum is well known for beautiful cherry blossom and magnolia trees in the spring, but the grounds also feature rivers, willow trees, impressive lookout views as well as greenhouse gardens. Although I have strolled the grounds many times, this was my first time shooting in the ornamental gardens! 

 

Some of you may recognise this gorgeous momma as another Ottawa photographer; it's Samantha from Samantha Marie Photography! I happen to know this beautiful family quite well, and it was an absolute pleasure getting to document their trip to the gardens!

 

Who can resist matching mommy and me flower crowns and beautiful gardens!?
