A little bit about
Bethany

Service bilingue disponible.


I am a wedding, maternity, newborn, and family photographer based in the west end of Ottawa. I absolutely love what I do! I am a mother of 3 (a little boy and twin boy and girl) and I understand completely how fast babies change and grow. This has inspired me to capture those unique characteristics and memories that you will cherish forever. My goal as a photographer is to capture precious images of your family that you will cherish for a lifetime.  I am extremely honoured to be able to share these moments with you. I look forward to building long-term friendships with each and every client as we grow together in this beautiful city.

I am a firm believer in printing and displaying the portraits I take. This is why we offer high-quality products varying from prints, wall art, and albums. Digital packages are usually added once you choose your photos.

I have a very warm, natural, and organic vision that highlights the natural beauty of the portraits I take. I truly enjoy newborns as “au naturel” with neutral accents that will reflect a timeless image that can be placed in the nursery or family wall. I take real life moments as they happen and showcase them in a way that you can proudly display in your home. I love the pureness that comes with each and every portrait session, so I tend to choose the simple timeless options that will last a lifetime.


My Specialties

Weddings: Your wedding will be a once in a lifetime lovely event; this is why you want to keep things simple yet professional with an artistic touch.

Maternity: Pregnancy is one of the most glorious times in a woman’s life. Maternity photography celebrates a woman’s radiance and new found curves, and captures the beauty and sensuality of impending motherhood.

Newborn: Nine months of eager anticipation has finally come to an end and your new bundle of joy has arrived! You will not want to miss the opportunity to have your little one photographed at this time. I delight in capturing the innocence and vulnerability of your newborn and creating beautiful images that you will forever cherish. Behold what a miracle she is! See how he stretches and yawns; how a tiny hand reaches out to grasp your finger. These are the fleeting moments that you will wish to preserve for a lifetime!

Family: Family photo’s are such an important memory to capture. From beautiful outdoor spring and fall photo’s to indoor Christmas themed photo’s, these moments will be passed down to generations like never before. So important to be in pictures for your children.

Cake Smashes: I offer a very limited amount of cake smashes to existing clients who are looking for more natural shots and less about the props and all about your growing baby. All of my cake smash sessions include some family shots as well.

Allie Liko

In house Newborn & Family specialist, and also second shoots with both Bethany & Luc at weddings.

I am a firm believer in love and the power it has to change the world. Getting to capture love in all its forms is such a joy for me, and I sincerely love what I do!

I shoot in a very natural, relaxed style. I believe in tummy hurting, nose squishing, tears rolling laughter in photos, and encourage my clients to arrive and simply be themselves! Why not make the actual picture taking a fun experience, too?

I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator, and I enjoy amalgamating my love of children, couples, and photography. I look forward to working with you!


Client Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working on a shoot with Bethany and it was amazing to watch how well she directed the model and all of her creativity and ideas come to life. Fantastic photographer and very friendly person. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking.”

Erin Dittburner

 

“Bethany is an amazing photographer. She was extremely professional and accommodating. All of our messages and inquiries were responded to quickly. Bethany skillfully and easily handled our baby girl with care while still having fun and pushing the envelope in her art. It really was an incredible experience to watch her work. Bethany is clearly a perfectionist from first contact to finished product. She captured every treasured moment and we will cherish these photographs forever.”

Lisa Koss

 

“I had an amazing Maternity session with Bethany! She is super friendly yet professional and made me feel amazingly beautiful and comfortable right away! I can’t wait to see the finished pictures. Bethany, you are amazing both as a person and at what you do! I will definitely be choosing you to capture photos of my miracle arriving in March!”

Tara Lynne

 

“We had family photos taken with Bethany and we were very pleased! It’s great to have these great photos of our family that we can look back upon in years to come.”

Chantal Coutu

 

“We did a Christmas photo shoot with Bethany. She had 3 beautiful backdrops and some props to keep the kids entertained, and she was great with the kids. My husband thought it was going to be a waste of time and money, since we can never get a nice picture of the 5 of us (we have a 4 year old and 2 year old twin boys) – Bethany proved him wrong! We love the pictures she took, and have received lots of compliments on them – it was worth every penny. We’ll definitely use Bethany again, she did an awesome job!”

Larisa Mikelsons

 

“From the very first contact, Bethany was so quick to get back to us and wanted to meet with us, which we loved since this was a big day, and we wanted everything to be perfect. Her studio is lovely and she had albums and prints with slideshows of other weddings she had done. A few weeks before the wedding she sent us a timeline, even offered so submit our photos to a wedding magazine if we wanted! This was way more than we expected and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Luc, her husband and second shooter was also very good to work with, I know the guys had lots of fun with him too! We can’t recommend both of them enough! They go above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and never forgot any details. Viewing the pictures, only a few short weeks afterwards and designing the album was by far the best. We chose a beautiful 30 pages, and we printed a few for our walls, and she had all samples available for us to choose from. Be sure to give her a call, you can’t find full service like this anymore!!”

Stephanie Cook

 

“We went to Bethany for a newborn photo session with our twins last month. She was very easy to work with and managed our twins (in addition to our three year old) in a fantastic professional manner. Amazingly, the twins stayed asleep throughout the entire session, and Bethany was able to get them into numerous creative and beautiful poses. We would definitely recommend Bethany Amanda Photography!”

Mark & Tracy

 

“Did a newborn photoshoot for my daughter with Bethany. She was very good with her and my toddler. She was very patient when my newborn woke up and she got her back to sleep. She had everything we needed for the shoot and more in her studio; a variety of blankets, outfits, hats, backgrounds and boxes. The pictures turned out amazing and they were ready in two weeks. We ended up ordering the 16×20 float mounts and they were really good quality and arrived fast.”

Janina Blank

 

“Bethany is wonderful with infants and quite accommodating with our schedule. She has a great set-up in her home.”
