Sunset at the Lavender Field. 34 weeks | Kitchener & area Maternity Photographer
A large part of the world of photographing families outdoors is finding amazing locations. Part of my job is to make suggestions of fabulous photography locations. I drive around and scout out new places that will work as a stunning backdrop to the photos. I talk to people who own farms and lovely spots. I knock on doors and take risks to use properties that catch my eye. I always have a few ideas at the back of my head for future sessions. But the truth is, I can photograph just about anywhere. It doesn’t matter what is surrounding people because the most important thing is to capture the connection between my subjects and to find spaces with gorgeous lighting. Some families prefer flowers or trees or a more rustic look. But the truth of the matter is, the light is by far the most important thing you can have in a photo. Without good lighting, the session is just meh. People can look shadowy or have green tones. I’m picky about my lighting, and I am the first to say that something won’t work if I don’t love the light. I believe I attract people to my photos because of the lighting that they see (although they might not realize that is the key ingredient).
For this session, we traveled to a gorgeous farm in Ayr called The Lavender Farm. Family owned, this farm produces gorgeous lavender and has a stunning property to use. But beyond that, the sunsets are perfection. Like sheer perfection. It doesn’t get much better than this. This location takes “Golden hour” to a whole other element. This amazing couple wanted their maternity photographs taken somewhere with a little pizzazz, and I think we found it here!
During the right time of year, the lavender is a brilliant purple colour. This year it wasn’t quite as vibrant as it can be because it was just so darn hot and dry. But it still looks pretty amazing.
I can’t wait to meet and photograph the little baby girl in there! It won’t be long before she arrives.
I love when all I have to do is ask people to hold hands and walk toward me. The connection between a loving couple is just so beautiful to photograph.
The above image is my absolute favourite from our session. I just love it.
