Oh Babies!

I am on call for so many births this spring and summer, I am really excited! I have started the domino effect of maternity sessions, and you know that I looooove maternity sessions. My last two birth meetings and maternity sessions were with couples who are expecting twins!! So special! scroll down to look at my favourite photos from both those sessions!

DENISE & BENTLEY
When most people think of an early spring photo session they think dreary and cold because it's the end of winter. Quite honestly, there is some real beauty in the bare trees and yellow grass and shrubs. Just check out this session from just the other day! I adore that barely frozen pond mixed with the autumn colours and the warm glow of the late afternoon sun hiding behind the clouds. And of course this mama's radiant dress is the perfect pop of colour. Hanging out with this couple for the afternoon was just wonderful. They certainly rocked their session. I am very much looking forward to being there to document the birth day of their babies!

TWO PLUS TWO
End of winter is also a perfect time for an in home session. Especially with little kids. It gave us time and space to chat about birth and documenting their birth day while the kids played. They later joined us for some photos. It couldn't have been more perfect that they came down the stairs with a heart balloon!! I can't wait for the day they meet their new babies!! Those pictures will be so so precious!

Maternity Sessions Before The Big Day

When people contact me about documenting their birth, I always suggest we get together! It's good to meet, get to know each other a little bit. We chat about your expectations and desires and chat about my process and the experiences I have had. Then we take a walk around the neighbourhood and snap a few photos.  I think it's nice to get a glimpse of yourself through my eyes and to do a little run through before fully committing to having the biggest day of your life documented. I want you to be sure of your decision, and I want you to feel at ease about me being there, and trust that I am capturing your day perfectly. More or less, I want to make sure we're a good fit. I am 100% there to document your day, but it's not uncommon for me to grab water, or hold a leg, or help put on slippers, or just cheer in the background because with birth, you gotta roll with it! Birth is beautiful and kinda unpredictable. If you have been following me on Facebook or Instagram you'll know that I am pretty passionate about birth. I believe that all women should be given more control and more information about their own birth and more support in their options. I wholeheartedly support all women in their birthing choices, so whatever happens, whatever you decide, I will support you.

These 4 sessions below are people I met with pretty recently. Two of these couples have had their baby already and 2 have not. Jesleen is due over the holiday season, and Sandra and Pawel will be parents any day now!! So send all those birthy vibes their way!
