Two of my very first paid shoots were maternity sessions, and from that point on I was drawn to the beauty and tranquility of expecting mothers. There is something absolutely magical about the concept of a woman’s ability to grow a tiny new human being. My own pregnancies were less than serene, with morning sickness (actually all day sickness) for the duration, among other problems, however I still look back at the few images I have and marvel. I wish I had sought out a more experienced photographer to capture my own pregnancies, as this lovely couple did with us.
We loved shooting this maternity session in both our centrally located Edmonton studio, and also one of our favourite local parks. We provided moms wardrobe, and Blush Artistry Edmonton did moms hair and make up.
One of my favourite parts of this session, was their little dog, Radar, who really stole the show…in fact we have had the pleasure of photographing Radar twice since this maternity shoot. First at his new human sisters newborn session (which is featured in our newborn gallery) and then again for Christmas mini sessions. Thank you to M+J for allowing us to capture these moments for you!
