Your Ottawa Newborn Photographer

Having a child is one of the most special moments in our lives. Never will something so tiny captivate you so much. These are the days we are meant to capture and hold onto for the rest of our lives.

As a newborn, baby, maternity and family photographer, we are here to help you do just that. We are Ottawa’s leading and premier newborn Photographer and our goal is to help you cherish these beautiful memories for a lifetime.

A bit more about our photography sessions

Newborn photography is one of Little Wagon Photography’s specialties. We offer a safe and nurturing environment, ensuring baby and parents are happy and comfortable throughout the photography session.

All the details are taken care of during your session at our Ottawa studio. We ensure the photo studio is cozy and warm and offer soothing sounds throughout the session to help your child enjoy his/her time with us.

We believe that these little details make a big difference on the day of your session and we strive to offer the best service we can for you and your little one. We offer many props and hope that you will feel our passion for capturing photos during this special time.

We love to create memories and hope that our clients fall in love with the whole process. As a professional photographer, we love spending time with our clients and taking photos of your family’s story.

Ottawa family photographer – best time to capture your family’s story

Many people ask when is the best time to get newborn baby photos done. The best time to come in for your newborn photography session is between baby’s first two to three weeks of life. At this stage, newborns are still very cuddly and sleepy, allowing the Photographer to place your newborn baby in many different poses throughout the session.

Ideally, you want to bring your newborn in for his/her photography session between the first 4-21 days of life. We encourage you to book your newborn photography session in advance and not wait until baby is born. Although we sometimes can fit last minute appointments, we usually recommend booking at least 1-2 months in advance to ensure availability.

For those who are unable to do their newborn session within this time frame, that is ok. Rest assured that we can still get beautiful photos of your baby no matter what phase they’re in. Just give us a call and we can talk to discuss options that will work best for you and your newborn baby.

Location of our photography sessions

Newborn sessions can take place at our Ottawa studio (located in the Stittsville/Kanata area) or at the comfort of your home. Our studio includes everything we need for wonderful family photos.

Please note that an additional fee applies for us to come to your home. As an Ottawa photographer, Little Wagon Photography offers a variety of backdrops, wraps, headbands, hats, and props to ensure you get a variety of poses with the package you choose to go with.

Please click here to see the different packages we offer. We also recommend that you take a look at our gallery and let us know if you have any preferences or if there is anything that you would like to incorporate in your photography session.

We can make your photography session as personable as you would like. We want to capture moments for our clients that they will enjoy for years to come.

Photography services – details for capturing fun family sessions

Prior to your session, we will have an email or phone consultation with you to go over many important details such as what to bring, what to wear and how to prepare for this special occasion. We want our sessions to be fun and enjoyable for every family.

This is also a great time for you to ask any questions that you may have regarding your photography session. Of course, if any questions arise after our consultation regarding your family session, you can always email or call us again.
