My last Ottawa Winter maternity session was a magical one. The snowy backdrops of Ottawa are beautiful for Spring babies’ maternity sessions. I love the snow so much I almost hope it could stick around a bit longer.

With this first time mom-to-be’s Winter maternity session coming up soon we looked ahead to the forecast. When we saw we were about to have a big thaw we moved her session up to a date before the temperatures would rise. The last minute switch was more than worth it. Not only was the snow still blanketing the ground but the sunlight was glowing and warm on the evening of their session. The snow and the beautiful lighting made a magical combination for this lovely couple’s session.

Maternity sessions are for capturing this exciting time in your family’s life. Before baby arrives you spend so much time planning, thinking and wondering. Imagining who your baby will look like, thinking what life will now be like, and dreaming of the adventures you’ll go on together. When I look at a family’s maternity photos I don’t just see happy families and a beautiful baby bump. I love being able to help capture the excitement and the dreams a family has about their upcoming arrival.

For this Last Ottawa Winter maternity session of the season the gorgeous mom-to-be selected to use two of my new maternity gowns. A rich burgundy gown that hugged her beautiful baby bump and a romantic white lace gown. They were two very different looks but both looked incredible on her.

This happy couple and soon to be a family of three was a lot fun to photograph. They are so excited to meet their little one soon and are already so much in love with their baby. I was so happy we were able to squeeze in one last Ottawa Winter maternity session for them before the snow melted. I can’t wait for them to meet their baby soon!
