“Being a family means you are part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life…” – Lisa Weedn

Family Photography in Ottawa

One of the best things we can do for our family is to provide them with memories that they will cherish for years to come. What a wonderful way for our kids to see how loved they were and for us to reminisce of the good times.

As an Ottawa family photographer, our goal is to help you capture those beautiful memories. We provide you with a fun and relaxing atmosphere, ensuring everyone is enjoying their time and that special moments are being captured during your photography session.

Location for your family photos – Ottawa family photographer

Our photography sessions can take place in our Ottawa studio or at an outdoor location of your choice.

We have done family photos in many beautiful locations throughout Ottawa and can provide you with suggestions as well.

Whether you prefer greenery or water as your background, we have you covered! Ottawa is home to beautiful parks and hidden gems that are perfect for any photography session.

Ottawa family session – what’s included for our families

Our family sessions include many poses and backgrounds and last approximately 1-1.5 hours in length, depending on the package you choose to go with.

Whether you are doing photos of just your immediate family or whether you are doing photos of your extended family, we want the entire family to have a great time!

While we do some posed photos, we also believe in capturing candid moments of you playing, laughing and having fun with your family. We want to capture beautiful photos during your family shoot; precious moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.

A photographer with many years of experience that will guide you along the way

We will guide you throughout your family session, making sure your experience is an enjoyable one and that you will want to come back to see us again!

We love spending time with our families and family photography is just one of many types of sessions that we offer. You can see the different packages that we offer here.

Family photos – details for your family photography sessions

Prior to our photo shoot, we will consult with you on what to wear and how to prepare the kids for your big day.

All the details are taken care of so that your family’s story can be captured in a way that all family members enjoy. As your Photographer, we want you to have amazing photos of this special day.

Extended family photography sessions

Extended family sessions are a great way to capture photos of your growing family. As an experienced Ottawa family photographer, our goal is to make each family session memorable and fun.

Incorporating large families into your family photography package is a wonderful way to include grandparents, cousins, uncles and aunts. It’s a way for families to capture beautiful photos of their own family as well as with the extended families.

It’s not just about newborn sessions – from newborn photography and beyond

While many of our clients first come to us for their newborn session (and while we love being called the baby whisperer), we have been an Ottawa family photographer for just as long and have photographed many wonderful people along the way.

We also love seeing our photos turned into art. While all of our packages include digital photographs, we also offer many beautiful photo print options, such as framed photographs and wall arts.

Is family photography worth the investment?

Do professional family pictures really make a difference? They sure do!

A professional photographer will take pictures that tell stories about your family. Photographers tend to be creative in their images and know the best spots to capture those photos – outdoors or indoors.

We want everyone to feel comfortable during your photography session. Most importantly, it’s a great opportunity for mom and dad to be included in the photos!

We have photographed hundreds of families and have many years of experience in business. We strive to create long-lasting relationships with our clients.

As professional photographers, we know the best time for taking photos (hint hint: golden hour) and offer many session types. You can come to your session relaxed knowing that a professional photographer will be taking care of the rest.

Here’s what clients are saying about us:

Mariana has done a wonderful job with my family pictures! We will have great memories for the special day when we celebrated my parents’ 48th wedding anniversary. She is definitely a very talented and professional photographer. Thank you! 🙂 – Alicia

– Mariana at Little Wagon Photography is absolutely AMAZING… she not only takes amazing pictures but makes the experience absolutely great! She is great with kids and her sensitivity for the shots are incredible. She does a great job conducting the photo shoots to get the best shots she can possibly get. Her work speaks for itself! LOVED having our family pictures taken with her! – Karin

– Perfect!!!! Mariana is an extremely friendly and lovely person. Her pictures are top quality and super beautiful. Highly recommended!!!! – Juliana

– I highly recommend Mariana / Little Wagon Photography! I found her online via Google, contacted her for a last minute photo shoot of my family and visiting relatives. She was super professional, friendly and efficient. The photography is great – Mariana knows how to work with difficult little subjects like toddlers who squirm, etc!
I’ve worked with other professional photographers before who are ridiculous when it comes to protecting their work and won’t give out full-sized digital files and want you to buy all prints through them. This is where Little Wagon Photography hands-down beats all of my previous collaborations. The service is simple – you get full-sized digital files and you do whatever you want with them, which is exactly what we need in 2017 when we’re experiencing photography on our devices. It’s so much simpler, easier and with the times.
I highly recommend Little Wagon Photography. – Leo
