It seems funny to be posting this after the incredible weather we had last week, but how could I not share a fun family winter session!

When I first moved to Ottawa, I remember people telling me you have to “embrace winter” when you live here.  After the very first winter, I knew what they meant!  They are long and cold, but that doesn’t stop us!  We get out there and make the most of it.

My friend Jay, the creative genious behind Loopy 4 Ewe, has been wanting a winter session for some time now.  And for what seems like forever, we’ve been discussing options, wardrobes, locations, timing….and then finally, a few weeks ago, it all came together for us.  We stomped in the snow, sunk in the snow, and don’t get me wrong – we froze in the snow, but it was worth it!  Winter sessions are just as glorious as anytime of the year.  I wish more people would brave the elements and “embrace winter”.  It won’t disappoint – promise!

Almost as soon as they opened the door, J&C warned me they weren’t camera people.  They didn’t take pictures, they didn’t pose for pictures and until recently didn’t even have a camera!  They knew that was all going to change once their little girl makes her way into their lives.  But until that moment arrives, we’ll call this maternity session, a dress rehearsal!  And honestly, I don’t know what they were worried about!  J is beautiful and glowing and C looks just like every expectant father does – a little excited and a little nervous all at the same time.

Thank you, both of you, for a wonderful morning.  I hope I was able to put you at ease and get ready for our next session with your princess!  I’m so looking forward to your news!

You may remember this adorable couple from their maternity session, a few weeks back.  They knew then that their little girl was going to make an early appearance with a planned delivery, but she suprised all of us and came even EARLIER!  Talk about keeping us on our toes.  I think I may have jinxed them a little when I told them the story of another couple whose maternity session I shot, only to have the baby that night!  Well, the nice thing about early babies is not having to go through heavy, sluggish last few weeks of pregnancy – they are the toughest!  And of course the added bonus of meeting that little baby who has been kicking you for all those weeks!

J&S welcomed baby S with open arms and naturally fell into their new roll as parents.  We had a lovely session in a cozy, warm house with nice music playing in the background and a gorgeous baby to work with.  I can’t imagine a nicer morning.  So without delay, meeting the newest princess in the house 🙂
