Shannon & Adam are expecting their first baby and have asked me to capture their maternity photos and to come back and take photos of their little one when he or she arrives (it’s a surprise…but my bet is a girl!) It’s always great to meet the couple before photographing baby, since we get nice and comfortable with each other and it makes it super easy, and so much fun, when baby arrives! I always get excited to meet baby after a maternity session and love seeing the results of that beautiful baby bump! Maternity sessions are one of my favourite sessions, and I love just getting to hang out with mom & dad and feed off their excitement and anticipation for the little one to arrive. Here are some of my favourites from the session – I cannot wait to see you again in a few weeks and take photos of baby!!
As we went along in our session, we started using wraps and more dramatic lighting to light Shannon & her belly. I love to take a whole bunch of photos in various outfits to give mommy & daddy – to – be many to choose from. I love using wraps for sessions, and I always encourage mommy’s to bring half a wardrobe so we can have fun with outfits!! I love seeing ladies wheeling up a suitcase and a belly when they come to my door (haha)!I love the thought of baby getting to see these photos when they grow up, and to see how special they were even before they officially arrived in this world! There is so much love in a maternity session!I tried something a little different with the white material wraps. I love how it looks all flowy! Mom looks absolutely stunning!! This last one is my personal favourite, althought I love them all! I hope you love the images, you two (+ baby)!
