I love maternity sessions. There is something so special and beautiful about a glowing mama-to-be and her adorable round belly, a proud and excited papa-to-be and his loving, protective touch. I get excited about every type of session I shoot, but I must admit I get particularly giddy before a maternity shoot. When Anna mentioned that Taylor had suggested a family friend’s amazing farm property as our location, my excitement multiplied 10 times. A big red barn. An old tractor. An old abandoned house full of colour and character. Stone walls. Open fields. Need I go on? I was over-the-moon with anticipation, and this amazing location and sweet expecting couple managed to exceed my expectations. We had such fun exploring the grounds, and I am so thankful to the owner of the property for granting us special permission to use his land as the backdrop for this maternity session. Anna and Taylor exude kindness and joy and were an absolute pleasure to photograph. They recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy named Asher into their lovely little family, and I wish them lots of giggles and cuddles and sleep as they enjoy this time with their new little bundle! Here are a few favourites from our session.
