The end of March is not a very pretty time of the year when it comes to the great outdoors. The ground is pretty muddy, the skies are often dull and gray, and the trees are basically empty. And for a lot of sessions I typically give people the option of waiting until the weather is a little nicer, but when it comes to time sensitive things, like maternity sessions, there really isn’t any waiting because once that little one decides to make their entrance a maternity session isn’t really an option anymore, haha!
But luckily Bridget + Matt were completely on board for their late March session and we were able to mix in some outdoor and in-home photos to give some more range to their photos.
You really never know what you’re going to be greeted with when it comes to big siblings. Sometimes they are super keen on being a part of the session and other times they want nothing to do with it. Every once in a while you find yourself somewhere in between (for example, a grumpy toddler who will be in the photos but not be happy about it, haha!), but more often than not, it’s one extreme or another. I am just oh so happy (and lucky) that when it came to Baby Mackenzie’s session, Big Sister Aubrey was the former and was absolutely thrilled that is was photo day!
How is it already the end of February!?! I mean, I feel like the new year just started and yet somehow we are already two months in — it’s crazy. I mention this because I am oh so very behind on blog posts it’s not even funny. Luckily though, sessions have been going out on time so Isha and her wonderful family have had their photos for a while now. But I am finally getting around to sharing them with all of you, lucky ducks!
So, Mother Nature was kind of uncooperative for a couple weekends in October. Which of course meant we had to reschedule this session because of the rain. I think we were all a little nervous and worried that due to the delays we would miss the great fall colours, but luckily for all of us that definitely didn’t happen as their backyard was still stunning! Seriously, this place looked like it was plucked straight of a magazine! But what was even better than that was this adorable family, particularly sweet Little Archer!
I think every single citizen of Ottawa and the area knows just how cold it can be here. And despite the few super random warmer days Mother Nature has thrown at us this winter season, that cold weather has definitely put a damper on outdoor activities — well at least for me it has. But I was more than happy to venture out into the cold to capture this beautiful maternity session for Samantha + Connor!
