When I met up with this couple, I could hardly BELIEVE that she was carrying TWO little munchkins in there!!  She was pretty certain she wanted to capture some belly photos – AND quickly!  Those boys could arrive VERY soon.  I’m glad we did have the chance to capture the time before their world got a little more hectic!  And how adorable are they?!?!  Smile

If only we could all be this gorgeous at 8 months pregnant!!  These guys were such a sweet and fun couple.  They had decided they wanted to be surprised and had no idea what the sex of the baby was.  I think everyone had a little suspicion as to whether it was a boy or girl.  My vote was for boy.  But you’ll have to WAIT to find out!!  Winking smile

Happy New Year everyone!!  What a year this has been for me!  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many expanding bellies, lots of wee babes and a pile of families.  You can now view my work at quite a few places around the city.  3D Miracles ultrasound clinic, Ottawa Integrative Health Clinic, Hands on Health massage therapy, and now at FAB Baby Gear!  (You can also purchase newborn packages directly through them AND the packages are on their baby registry.)

Okay, I have to share some favourites from 2011!!  Open-mouthed smile

I was so excited to meet up with this family again.  It had been a while since we’ve gotten together.  QUITE a while.  (Their little girl was just a wee newborn back then; as you can see here.)

She’s much bigger now, and LOADS of energy!  I have no idea how her parents keep up to her.  She is sooo cute, and so much fun!  This little family of three will be a family of four in the new year; as a baby boy is on the way!  I can’t wait to meet him!!  Smile

I was very happy to have the chance to meet up with this family a few weekends ago.  (Even though the weather was NOT looking that great…I was glad that the clouds parted and gave us some sun to work with.)  These guys were so much fun, and up for anything!  Even when I handed the girls some moustaches!  Dad is participating in ‘Movember’ to raise money for Cancer research, and we didn’t want to leave the girls out for the photos.  Winking smile

The girls are VERY excited for their baby brother to arrive.  Could be the BEST Christmas gift EVER!  Smile

Happy Labour Day everyone!  And how perfect is it to have a beautiful pregnant mama to show off today?  Winking smile

I thought I would have to wait the loooong 9 months to find out whether this family would be bringing a boy or girl into this world.  As she never found out what she was having for her first two pregnancies.  But something made them want to find out this time around.  And what a surprise it was when they found out it was going to be a little girl!  I asked her oldest boy if he had names picked out for his baby sister.  He told me he did, but his mom didn’t like any of them.  Heehee.  So we’ll have to wait and see what they decide for this little one.  Although it won’t be too much longer!  I can’t wait!!  Open-mouthed smile

Maternity portraits are best taken somewhere between your 34th and 38th week.  Please contact me if you’re interested in booking your own session.  I look forward to hearing from you!!


I had the opportunity to meet up with this wonderful couple a few weeks ago.  They are expecting a baby boy!  Lately I have seen an abundance of baby girls, so this makes me VERY excited.  I laughed when they were telling me they didn’t want to schedule the session TOO early, as they like to sleep in.  I’m thinking that they will need to get in all the sleep they can right now, because things are about the change!  Winking smile

Of course we had to include their FIRST baby into the photo session.  This proved to be a little challenging, but he was a real pro.  We’re all waiting for this baby boy to make his appearance.  Can’t wait to hear the news!!  Open-mouthed smile

I was out and about at the Arboretum with this gal from FAB Baby Gear a few weeks ago now.  If you’ve ever shopped there, you may recognize her.  And if you haven’t – you should!  Winking smile  Oh, and don’t forget her beautiful little daughter who is waiting patiently for her baby sister to arrive.  These two were completely adorable.  I never imagined a two year old could be so cooperative (certainly not mine!!), but she was so eager to do anything.  I thought it was hilarious!  I managed to choose a few of my favourites to show, so here they are!  Smile
