Leily and Chris - At Home Maternity Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

Leily and Chris' session was originally planned for outside. We were going to cruise around in the Ottawa market and capture some memories. But the day of the session arrived and it was chilly. Like, bright red nose, chilly, like tighten your body as much as you can, chilly. Our back up was to do an at home session. I am going to be completely honest now and say I was a bit nervous. I have done so many at home sessions before, but never a maternity session. Children and/or babies are always involved which make for continuous moments to capture.  But I had never done a couple in their home on their own. The moment I was greeted at the door by these two, I knew I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Relaxed, easy going and so so friendly and warm. The ingredients for this perfect at home maternity session were as follows: 90's play list from Spotify,  a friendly yet competitive game of Uno, some hot tea, guitar serenading and a whole lot of love.
