These sessions are a wonderful way to capture one of life's most remarkable journeys. It's also the beginning or your baby's life story. Your child will be endlessly curious about where he came from, what you looked like carrying him/her and having beautiful images will help you share that important story with him/her.
Maternity sessions are often left to the last minute and before you know it, baby is already 6 weeks old. That's how fast time flies!
This is why I recommend you book your maternity session for the 7th or 8th month of pregnancy. The discomfort, fatigue and unexpected complications that can arise in the 9th month have thwarted more than one mommy to be from getting her photo taken. More importantly, it will be super hard to get your shoes on and off!
You have a choice between our super Cordova Bay studio for your session or an outdoor shoot at one of Victoria's many scenic locations.
Obviously some time's of the year are better suited for a cozy indoor session where you can change easily, get controlled soft lighting and have all the privacy you need for those stunning B&W art images.
However, their is something grand and dramatic about an outdoor session where you can incorporate the rugged nature Victoria has to offer, with the sweet simplicity of this special moment in your life. Thinking about which type of image you would most cherish in 30 years is a great way of choosing if you are on the fence.
I love things to be as simple as possible for my moms-to-be. It isn't very practical for you to buy a bunch of clothes that will fit you for a few weeks at a time so I have created a lovely selection of outfits that fit every body type and gowns that will make you feel like a goddess (which you are!)
Spouse and children are always welcome in the maternity session!
