The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.


This session was a gift from Dad to his wife for Mother’s Day.  What a wonderful way to celebrate such a special relationship!  After being rained out once, we rescheduled and lucked into a beautiful evening at the Arboretum.  I’m so glad we did – it would have been a shame to have replaced Miss. E’s summer dress with a raincoat and boots!

Remember Mr. E?  He is the handsome guy who graces the front of my maternity and newborn business card.  Well a few weeks ago, after 2 years of being surrounded by trucks and trains, mom and dad welcomed a bitty baby girl!  Bring out the dresses, bring out the bows!  Bring out the dolls, and beads and dress up!  It is a whole new world!

To say that I was excited to meet and photograph Miss M. is an understatement!  Mom is ALWAYS prepared!  She had ideas, she had props, she had accessories!  It is so much fun for me when my families want to give their session that extra special bit of personalization. 

First up was an antique desk, very fitting for a teacher mom,and perfect for big brother and little sister!

And then we recreated a portrait that mom and dad loved from E’s session

And finally we headed off to Rideau Hall, where there is a very special bench honouring Dad’s mom.  I love that they we have been able to photograph a number of the family’s milestones there.  Such a wonderful and beautiful memory to cherish.

Thanks again, J&D!  I am so happy for all of your good fortune and so happy to have captured it for you.  I wish you all the best for all the new things coming your way

As the day wore on, the skies got darker and darker and I started to worry.  Not because the session was to take place outdoors, but K had told me she thought her house was slightly dark.  What was I in for?  As I started the drive, the skies opened up and the rain came down.  No, sunshine to be found anywhere.  Regardless, it was going to be great!  Maternity sessions always are.  But just about 10 minutes away, the clouds separated and the most beautiful rainbow graced the sky.  Now it really was going to be great!

When K&H opened the door, I couldn’t have met a nicer couple.  They were excited and friendly and so cute together.  But almost imediately dad to be made it known – “no cheese”.  I really hope I didn’t disappoint!

Thanks again K&H.  Can’t wait to hear your news and meet the baby later in the summer!

You just never know what life has in store for you – and this mom to be will tell you just that!

With a very active little boy at home already, mom and dad are set to welcome, not one, but two more little boys to the mix in a few short weeks!!  Twins!

We met one evening at the Experimental Farm to capture mom’s baby belly.  It was a gorgeous night.  Glowing sun, a nice breeze, perfection.  And then when mom stepped out of the car, and I saw how glamourous she looked at 8 months pregnant, I knew we were going to capture some beautiful images!

Thanks C!  Enjoy!  I can’t wait to meet those little boys!
