• Welcome to my blog, Melissa Gauthier Photography - I adore shooting weddings, newborns, family and everything in between. With over 10 years experience and a strong background in graphic design - my goal is to provide you with remarkable memories to reflect back on for a lifetime. I love what I do, I love the people I get to meet - I truly have the best job! Would love for you to scoop out my blog and head over to my website to learn more about what I do.

Sam+Sean Maternity // Ottawa Maternity Photographer

After many days of rain and gloom, we finally got out to do Sam and Seans maternity shoot. The session was lovely with a pretty hint of Spring with the bright greens and flower trees starting to bud. We sure laughed a lot too with Seans great sense of humour! He can sure make Sam smile!

Sam is just beautiful – her pregnancy glow was shining through with these photos. I loved capturing these moments for them – maternity is such a beautiful thing, and capturing these moments are priceless. Can’t wait to meet baby Boy next month!

Baby Chase | Ottawa Newborn Photographer

Welcome to my blog with the fresh new start of Melissa Gauthier Photography!!

Why not start with this wonderful newborn session with baby Chase. This little guy was a special gift for my friend and co worker Bridget and her family. I remember when Bridget told me quietly in my cubicle at work she was pregnant and wanted to book photos (she was probably my earliest momma to book ever!!! lol) I was ecstatic. Bridget not only works with me at my full time job, but some of you may know her as also my assistant at weddings! I couldn’t have been more happy for her and her family, they truly came a long way and couldn’t be more complete having this little guy now in their lives. Chase was such a great newborn model for me, such a sleepy really chill baby – the kind of baby and newborn photographer dreams of.

MJG Photography got a make over!! | 10 years in the business

MJG Photography got a make over!!! Welcome to Melissa Gauthier Photography! It’s been 10 whole years in the business – a very exciting milestone! I’ve met so many great people, children and babies. Ive seen people marry and have babies – and more amazingly watch those kids grow. 10 years is a long time and it’s been a blast.

I am sure many of you that know me as MJG Photography are wondering why the change? Well, after being MJG Photography (which does stand for my full name Melissa June Gauthier) for over 9 years (ACTUALLY I started off as Photos by Melissa for the first year!! Totally forgot about that one!) –  I just wanted to do something new and fresh without a dramatic change – so Melissa Gauthier Photography it is! What else has changed? My logo and branding, I have a new separate Instagram account as well a new email address (but don’t worry, MJG Photography links will still work for a while until I fully transition) I also created a logo I finally LOVE and can adapt nicely. I am really loving this new change.

My style of work and services I provide – won’t change! You still get the same me.

That being said, welcome to my blog. It’s been a while since I have had my blog running – so from time to time, I hope to keep you fully updated and post to full sessions – sharing great life stories of behind the sessions I shoot.

Although photos really do speak to themselves, blogging is such a great way to keep connected with the world and of course with website SEO! So please, spread the word – share my photos, share my blog – would love to reach more and share my work with you all. Word of mouth is a photographers biggest compliment, nothing beats it!

I am beyond excited about this new and improved part of  my business, I couldn’t wait to share. So I hope you will come back to my blog and website and check out all that is new and exciting at Melissa Gauthier Photography.

–  Melissa
