Hello & Welcome!

Thanks for your interest! I am Jodi of Horton Photography. I am based in Ottawa, Ontario and specialize in newborn and family photography. I use a mixture of natural and studio lighting, both indoors and out. Our studio is located in the historic village of Manotick, approximately 20kms outside of the city. Please have a peek through our galleries and feel free to contact me if you have questions. Have a great day.

Other Tidbits

First and foremost, I am a mother to 4 daughters and a wife to my husband Paul (and little dog Max). My passions outside of photography and my family are fitness, friends and fun! The years are flying by and I try to not waste a minute...

Before becoming a photographer, I graduated from Carleton University and began a career in teaching. I enjoyed it, but knew that I desired a more creative outlet. What started as a hobby soon turned into a photography business in 2008. After photographing many weddings and learning so much along the way, I started to come back to my passion for working with children.

I believe that my success has come from creating beautiful images for people, but much more importantly-building great client relationships. I aim to make my sessions fun and to capture personalities and candid moments in my photographs. I prefer more natural, genuine moments, and most of that comes from making people feel comfortable- whether it's a new mother who comes to my studio a week after delivering a baby, or a family with a toddler that won't sit still for longer than 10 seconds. I truly love the challenge! I think I'm a very laid back and patient person by nature, and that this is reflected in the natural images that my clients come away with.

I would love to meet you and your family!
