Guelph Maternity Photography | Melynda & Calvin

Happy Sunday everyone 🙂  I usually never take the time to blog on the weekends… but as I started looking ahead at this week, I realized I won’t be able to share some beautiful photos of a lovely couple Justin and I had the chance of meeting on Thursday!  And that’s just not cool.  So here it is, some beautiful maternity photos of a couple who are so down-to-earth and easy to be with!  We loved our time with them.  Not only did we take some great shots, but since Melynda’s about 7 weeks ahead of me (and its their first baby too), they had some really good tips to throw our way… THANKS!

Here’s a shout out to Melynda who may or may not be reading this (considering she’s due any second!  How exciting!)… but if you are, I hope that your upcoming birth goes fabulously!  I’ll be thinking about you!

they are such a happy couple!

please note that all the cool shots are thanks to Justin 🙂

another great shot by Justin!

I love the next 4 photos of Melynda… she’s a beautiful preggo!

Guelph Maternity Photography | Alicia, Dylan & Ellie

I have a friend, her name is Alicia.  She has a beautiful family and is expecting again (another girl!!).  She wanted to have some photos done this time around, since she hadn’t had the chance last time in her pregnancy with Ellie.  Sooooo, of course I was up for a lovely shoot.  We definitely caught some amazing glowing moments of Alicia… as well as some beautiful family shots!  And obviously we had to give little Miss Ellie her time to shine too!  She’s such a sweetie with a personality as big as the sun!

Thanks Alicia & Dylan for trusting me with some important family memories!

They were so brave for bracing the COLD!

Ellie didn’t mind the weather so much, she was having a blast!

Alicia and her gorgeous preggo self!


LOVE this series of shots!



Enough of Mom… now it’s Ellie’s turn 🙂  She’s a princess with her “real princess crown”

Look at these three… can’t wait to meet the fourth!


Ellie made us laugh with her lovely dance moves!


My favourite of the day.  Hands down.
After some hot chocolate, we headed to the studio for a few more shots.  Thanks to Ellie for helping me test my lights 🙂

beautiful moment

Loveliness.

Many blessings in the final stretch of this pregnancy!!  Can’t wait to meet Aralyn 🙂 xox

Cuba Maternity Shoot | Chris & Christine

Just a few days ago, Justin & I were living ‘la vida loca’ (well it was more like ‘la vida relajada’) on the beaches of Cayo Guillermo in Cuba.  I don’t think I’ve ever taken a trip where I just sat around and did NOTHING!

We had a super fun time with our friends Chris & Christine… since we’re both expecting babies in the next 5 months (and our lives to change drastically), we figured that we would have one last “baby-less” trip 🙂  But I guess I’ll stop rubbing that in!

On another note, if you’re in the Kitchener-Waterloo area and you’re an engaged couple looking for a wedding planner, you’ve probably heard of Christine Martin from Pure Potential Weddings.  If you haven’t heard of her you may want to head to her website.  She’s usually the one behind the scenes making everything run smoothly for you… But this time around, it was her time to be in front of the camera.

One late afternoon, just before the sun went down, we headed down to the windy beach and took some beautiful maternity shots of her and hubby.  I hope you enjoy them because these two look super fab!!!

There are so many from this series.  I couldn’t narrow it down!!

On our way to the beach, I found this row of small houses.  And it so happened to be an awesome location!



LOVE it!

so fun!

As we headed towards the beach, the wind got FIERCE… so we used it to create some fun shots!

I over exposed this shot and they both really loved it!

Chris really enjoyed fishing off of this pier!


After our ‘a la carte’ dinner, we took a few more night shots to end the session!

If you’re looking to have some casual maternity shots done similar to these, send me an email!

Abbotsford Maternity Photography | Julia & Mike – Maternity

She was my roommate in College… the one who could always make me laugh when times were stressful! And well he is seriously one of the kindest men I know. They’re fabulous people with a fabulous little baby on the way. While I was out west, there was no doubt that we had to take advantage of me being so close. And what a perfect time for photos since she’s “preggo” (as she says – for some reason I really hate that term – why? I don’t know!).

Julia & Mike, Justin and I hope the best for you and your little one 🙂

I hope you enjoy this lifestyle short film that Justin put together!

And now for the photos…

I just loved this old door she had in her house.

This is the Julia laugh that is SO contagious!

Aside from our mutual friend Justin, Mike has got to be THE BIGGEST SPORTS fan of life!

This next shot was definitely appropriate for them.  Thank You Elisha for the idea!

We took some photos in their yard because it was SO green from all that rain!

After a long day of rain, the sun came out just in time to go back down… but the light was perfect for this shoot!
