Last summer, Kayla and I spent an afternoon documenting her first pregnancy with a lifestyle maternity session. It was so beautiful, and we honestly couldn’t have picked a better day if we tried. If you remember, last summer was unusually hot and humid in Ottawa, but we lucked out with a perfect summer afternoon.
Starting at home, we took a few more intimate photos in the master bedroom before heading out in search of tall grass and beautiful countryside. Kayla already had the most beautiful spot picked out just around the corner from her home. My photographer heart almost exploded when we got there. Tall grass, trees in the distance, a beautiful golden hour. It was seriously perfect. And Kayla rocked an amazing maternity dress that really showcased the bump. I know I don’t always share a lot of maternity or family work, but I love these sessions, and I love documenting these milestones in peoples’ lives.
A quick stop back at home for a wardrobe change, and some photos with Bryden and their dog Walter. And then we were off to another spot just down the road for a final few golden hour maternity photos. I remember leaving the shoot and feeling so full and happy. And like I was exactly where I needed to be. Best feeling ever as an entrepreneur! Here are some photos from Kayla’s session:
Thanks for the lifestyle maternity session, Kayla. It was perfect, and I had a blast.
