When I decided to focus on women’s portraits three years ago, my goal was to photograph women in every stage of their life. However, I did not get a lot of inquiries for maternity sessions or family sessions because I am not per se a “maternity photographer” and people don’t see me as a traditional “family photographer”.
But I have always been fascinated by portraiture, and by women, and maternity and motherhood is part of some women’s lives. And I am happy to document it!
So I was delighted when Paige (who won my silent auction for a Truth in You session at the Stollery Women’s brunch on January 27th) asked me if we could take some portraits of her 9-month-old baby and her. Absolutely yes!
This session was a dream. Paige’s makeup was done by Elizabeth Segura from Blushed Beaute. We shot at Paige’s house and she asked me to bring my flowers backdrop. And baby Lainey was absolutely adorable!
This is a quick edit in black and white because Paige and I both love black and white (our inspiration for the shoot was mainly black and white images from Vogue editorials!). But I had to share something today!
More photos to come… stay tuned!
