Winter Maternity Session - Strathcona Park, Ottawa

Pregnancy is a funny thing. We are so overwhelmed with joy and love and yet the experience is not all unicorns and rainbows for most women. A lot of women who contact me for maternity sessions feel unattractive, uncomfortable and uneasy having their picture taken during this time. I definitely understand. I don't feel so hot myself these days. However, I don't know of a single woman who regrets having those memories captured. 

I must say that every pregnant woman I've met has been beautiful. There really is something radiant about a woman growing a life (or more).
And this beautiful mama-to-be was no exception - she was absolutely glowing!  

The glow could very well be the love that surrounds them. Although women, and often their partners, are uncomfortable in front of the camera, it's easy to distract them by chatting about the baby. Their insecurities melt away and their interactions are genuine and true. It's very inspiring and touching to witness that much love.

This couple will soon be holding and adoring this little "lemon-loaf" and their love will intensify ten fold, if not more. I sincerely wish this growing family health,
happiness and a lifetime of memories.
