Lisa and Matt - Mini Maternity Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

I had the honour of photographing these two cuties just a month before their son was born.

We met up at Hog's Back Park and cooled off in the water by the trails. We only had a short time with each other as they opted for a mini session and they absolutely just dove right in and rocked it in front of the camera! Bravo you two!

Congratulations on the arrival of their beautiful son, Mavrick, who was born on July 16th.

The Wilson's - Mini Maternity Session - Ottawa Based Photographer

I'm so behind on blogging as that little baby in Chantal's belly has already graced us with his beautiful presence 2 weeks ago, but this little family of three at the time is just way too cute not to share. And you gotta look through till the very end as we found a cute little creature and I, as well as Tessa, can tell you it was the bestest part of the whole hour we spent together;) Enjoy!

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.
