This beautiful first time mom-to-be was less than two months away from expecting her first baby so I was ecstatic we were able to find an evening to meet up together in early September for her maternity session. We met up in one of my favourite Ottawa forests for this lovely couple’s session. With the trees still lush and green but with beautiful hints of Fall colours speckled on some of the trees the forest gave us a beautiful variety of backdrops for their photos.

In the lead up to this mama’s session, we made a plan to incorporate some of the gowns from my maternity collection. Choosing from my gowns is part of the fun of session preparation and we’re always happy to help find just the right gown for the look each client would like.

When the couple arrived for their session, we began with photos of them together in her own beautiful outfit first. First time parents often aren’t sure what to expect when they arrive at their maternity session but both mom and dad did an amazing job and we had a lot of fun together as I walked them through their different photos. 

After capturing some sweet moments of the couple together with their little one and with the tiny shoes their baby will soon be wearing, mom changed into her first gown. When you’re outdoors at a session without a full length mirror it’s hard to realize just how stunning you look until you see your gallery so she just had to take my word for it at the time. All three gowns she wore during her session looked gorgeous on her! With a longer session planned, it was a wonderful opportunity to include a variety of different gowns as a part of her session. I’m thrilled with the variety of photos from their session and grateful I was able to capture this very exciting time in their lives.
