I was honoured to photograph Catherine and Tim’s Maternity photos, as they anxiously await the arrival of their sweet boy, Elijah. (Loving the name they’ve chosen!)
In our original meeting, Catherine let me know of her vision, which was pretty simple and straightforward: she requested limited posing, candids and a beautiful forest in the background. After hearing this, I knew we “clicked” because the outdoors (and even more, a forest) is one of my favourite locations to photograph). It is so beautiful and calming. The forest as a backdrop is naturally fitting for the beauty of pregnancy – it is earthy, unpretentious, simple, yet charming.
After a few playful shots in the beginning, and burning off some apprehension that comes with any couple’s first “photoshoot,” towards the end of the shoot, some of the most gorgeous photos emerged, even the sun approved and cast a beautiful glow.
Cat and Tim, it was my pleasure working with you both. I look forward to capturing more of your special moments, especially with the much anticipated arrival of baby Elijah.
