Mr. J is going to be a big brother and I can’t wait to meet his new baby soon!

I met up with this lovely family at the beach on a beautiful evening this July for their second child’s maternity session.

Little Mr J is always up for fun at his sessions so I knew we were all going to have a great time together on the beach. For their family maternity photos, mom found a really pretty dress that looked amazing on her and was ideal for a beach session. Sessions on the beach are perfect for capturing candid moments together before a new addition arrives. This fun loving family enjoyed cuddling up together for photos and playing along the water’s edge as I took their photos together as a family of three (but almost four!). I remember when I was expecting my second baby being so excited to see my children together soon but at the same time treasuring all of those one-on-one moments with my first so I always love to capture playful, candid maternity photos with the family while they enjoy the same.

For her maternity photos, mom selected to incorporate two of my newest maternity gowns into her session. These two gowns have quickly become amongst my favourite gowns with their rich colours and beautiful shape, perfect for showing off this gorgeous mama’s baby bump. It may have been a bit late but Mr. J wasn’t tired of my camera yet and was more than happy to jump into mom’s arms for some special photos together in my blue gown.

With the sun starting to drop on the horizon, we headed to the water for photos of just mom. She looked absolutely stunning in my blue gown against the backdrop of the water. With the sun getting lower in the sky I was thrilled that we were able to take advantage of the lighting to create gorgeous photos of her in silhouette against the water and in front of the glowing sunset. I can’t pick a favourite photo from this session as I absolutely love how everything turned out but the shot of mom in front of the sunset is definitely high on my list, she is gorgeous! I am so excited for this family to be welcoming their little one soon and can’t wait to see the four of them at their newborn session.
