Ottawa Photographer| All about that golden light!

I wanted to write a blog post all about golden hour for my photography sessions in Ottawa. As a Ottawa Photographer, whenever I get inquiries about sessions, I always suggest the hour before sunset because the light is just incredible. The sun sets in the background and creates really stunning images. I have spent several years scouting out the best sunset locations for photography sessions in Ottawa so I will be able to provide you with quite a few options. 

Now, I am a mother to two young girls so trust me I know all about how that time is tricky for  young kids. What I usually suggest in these circumstances is you nap your kiddos later that day to accommodate a later bed time. Alternatively, you could do a sunrise session if you are blessed with early risers;) If these options don’t work, I suggest that you do what I do, wait until fall! In the fall the days are shorter so golden hour is around 6 pm depending on the month. You get the best of both worlds as you get those beautiful sunset pictures without having to keep your kiddos up late!

I wanted to share some of my favourite golden hour photos in Ottawa just so you can see how amazing that light really is. Trust me, it’s worth it for one day to go off schedule and get some incredible images. It really makes a difference!
