Player 3 Coming Soon...

Oh my. These two were so much fun to work with! Their beautiful personality and their love for each other was something I immediately noticed when we met for the first time to discuss documenting their birthing day. Of course, like all my birth meetings, after we talked about birth photography and got to know each other a bit, we snapped a few photos. This mama was about 6 months pregnant at the time these first three images were taken. After our meeting and mini session they decided to go ahead and book an Oh Baby bundled collection which included a full maternity session and the documentation of their birthing day. So, 2 months later we got together again to do a full maternity session. Scroll down…

At 8 months pregnant we went out on this hot August day and headed to Underpass Park. It was such a fitting location for video game themed photos. So colourful and fun. We also snapped some photos around their home. That is the part of the maternity session where most mamas like to embrace their new beautiful body. It’s so temporary and it’s so special. Definitely something you won’t want to skip documenting. Scroll down to see…

Not long after our maternity session I got “the call!” It was baby time!! I arrived at the hospital and these 2 were riding the contraction roller coaster. You could sense the relief and feeling of safety when the midwives arrived. It was like at that moment she could surrender and it was not long after that it was time to push her little baby out in to the world! It was an incredibly beautiful and emotional birth. Scroll down to see some of my favourite images from their birthing day!

Baby Bumps + Birth Meetings

When people contact me about documenting their baby’s birthing day the first thing we do is set up a meeting to chat and get to know each other a little more. After we chat we do a little complimentary mini maternity session. This gives you a feel for what it’s like to be in front of the camera and allows you to see yourself in my images before you commit to having me document this momentous time in your life. There are no retakes when in comes to birth so you need to be confident in who you are trusting to document such a life changing experience.
I always recommend you contact me early, like as soon as you realize you want your birth documented, because with the nature of this type of photography I can only take 2 births per month and I need to keep them spaced by 2 weeks to be fully confident that births won’t overlap. This means my birth schedule is often booked up. However, if you contact me last minute when you are nearly full term, there’s a chance I can fit you in because sometimes the mama who is booked for the same time you are due already had her baby which opens up the spot. For example, the first family featured below was my early March mama, and baby was born yesterday! So, if you are expecting your baby between now and mid-March and are looking for a birth photographer, you are in luck because a spot has opened up! Contact me ASAP!

Now scroll down to see a bunch of recent mini maternity sessions at different stages of pregnancy (and different times of the year). Most of these babies have been born, and some of these babies are still cozy in the womb for just a little bit longer.
