I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet little guy’s mama when he was still just inside her several years ago for his own maternity session. Since that first session several years ago I’ve photographed their family on many occasions and it is always a joy to spend time with them. 

For their maternity session for their upcoming arrival mom and dad wanted a family focused session that was not only perfect for capturing photos of their growing baby but also for creating beautiful memories of their family before baby arrives and makes them a family of four.

In the lead up to their session I had had a location in mind for their photos but earlier on the morning of their session I was out and about and glimpsed some beautiful early Fall colour in the leaves and made a last minute change in our plans. The bright red leaves are a treat early in September and I’m so glad I spotted them as they added a beautiful backdrop to their family centered maternity session. 

It was a beautiful morning to be outdoors playing on the trails. Little Mr. E had so much fun running, jumping, and swinging with mom and dad. His energy made for a really fun and playful session but he was also happy to pause for photos cuddled up together with mom and dad. His mama is absolutely glowing and the photos of the two of them together and with his little hand on her belly are heart melting. He is going to be a wonderful big brother, I can’t wait to see him snuggled up with his new baby soon!
