It’s time to savour those sweet summer nights

Think about some of your most vivid, favourite memories with your family. I bet the majority of these moments have the warm glow of summer wrapped all around them. When I asked my kids some of their most favourite things we do, most of them happen during the summer months (boating, fishing and swimming topped all of their lists!).


Many of the best summertime memories involve the simplest of things like impromptu barbecues or letting the kids stay up way past their usual bed times so you can let them play until they can’t play no more. There is nothing like it.

Yet the season of summer lovin’ here in the Ottawa Valley is short and there is so much to soak up in such a limited timeframe. If we could only make those carefree summer nights in your own backyard, at a nearby beach or the cottage last forever.

Well, here’s your chance to freeze those wonderfully magical evenings of sitting out on the back deck, enjoying ice cream with the kids and watching the sun hit the horizon. I’m introducing an new option for local family sessions:

You're in great hands. Gemma has a professional background in journalism and began Gem Photography when her children were small. She documented their entire childhood and knows first hand how quickly the long days turn into short years.

She offers two fantastic options for family photography - one is her signature session that celebrates life in and around your home or in your favourite place. The other is a perfect blend of lifestyle / documentary-style photography with simple portraits. You really can't go wrong with either choice!
