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.
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!
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!
So I realized this morning that I forgot to share Kirsten + Kyle’s maternity photos. How did I end up remembering you ask? Well, I thought about it while I was setting up the studio for they baby’s newborn session, haha!
I don’t know how I could have possibly forgot about it, as this session was truly epic! Although, really, by this point I should just know that these guys are the ultimate rock stars and just so all-around amazing, especially in front of the camera.
Winter weddings can be a little tricky. Of course it is cold and we need to adjust how we work outside to make sure no one gets frostbite, but there is also that pesky sun. The shorter days and earlier sunsets mean we end up with less daylight for outdoor photos, and if you aren’t super keen on having a first look (which is always our first suggestion on how to work with the shorter days), it can be a little tricky to get everything captured in the best lighting. But worry not because there are always solutions and we can work pretty darn quickly when we need to and that is exactly what we did for Alexis + Peter’s winter wedding!
