I had the honour of photographing this expectant mother just a few days before her due date. We grabbed a few gowns and set out to find the perfect spot on our Vancouver Island beaches to get creative. The tide was out and the beaches were almost completely empty so it wasn’t hard to find.
We almost immediately got in the water. I literally cannot help myself when I have beach sessions. Luckily this mama is the adventuring type and didn’t mind the wet sand or tide pools.
We stayed until the sun started sinking and then she went home to her beautiful family of three to await them becoming a family of 4.
I know when I was this close to meeting my babies I didn’t look nearly as glamorous. I’m always so blown away with how amazing my clients are and she was no exception.
A few weeks back I had the honour of photographing a beautiful family awaiting the arrival of their first baby.
She showed up with one of her own gowns and it blew me away. It wasn’t an actual maternity gown, it was a gown she wore for her rehearsal dinner a few years prior.
So um… two things, its gorgeous and WHAT?! I didn’t fit anything even 5 months into my first pregnancy that I wore before I was pregnant! I found her gown so inspiring and we got to work creating images to showcase it.
We used every inch of available space in my tiny little studio and it was such fun session.
I cant wait for them to welcome their baby home. Its gonna be soooooo cute!!!
I’ve been so busy this summer with that whole work-life balance thing that I haven’t blogged in a little while. I have so many edited sessions piling up in my TO BLOG file on my desktop. Slowly but surely! This session was so fun! I had a beautiful couple come in to my Qualicum Beach based studio expecting their first baby who should be coming earth side very soon. The mom was a natural even though she expressed she didn’t love being in front of the camera. (I hope I was able to help her change her mind!)
But the camera obviously loves her! Look at this beauty!!! And her partner was so supportive and up for anything I had him change his shirt a bunch of times! I am so lucky.
That couples shot may look serious but we had so many laughs. It is so much fun capturing the moments leading up to a family of two becoming a family of three!
This gown was basically made for this mama. I love these simple studio images that show how connected a pregnant woman can be to her baby. I cant wait to meet their little one soon!
