Halifax, Nova Scotia Maternity Photographer

I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, and now that I’m going all in on my photography, I have finally updated one of my galleries.  Forget the fact that my dishes aren’t washed, my kitchen’s a mess and I’m still in my pajamas.  The important thing is that the gorgeous pictures of these mommas-to-be are finally posted.  To check them out, click on the “Maternity” link under the gallery heading above, or just click here: http://wp.me/PrvJQ-8u .

I’ve been pregnant three times, and, in each case, I can count on one hand the number of pictures I have of myself.  The ones I do have were taken as quick snapshots by friends or family and, while treasured, aren’t the most flattering.  During the ups and downs of pregnancy, few women feel normal, let alone beautiful. Carrying a baby is an amazing time and deserves to be recognized and celebrated with pictures that make a mother-to-be feel lovely, and that’s what I want to do.  If you, or someone you know, is expecting, I’d love to help you document this amazing time in your life.

Here’s a little sneak-peak of what is possible…

This super-sweet family came to me in part to get family pictures done and in part to get maternity pictures done of their beautiful mamma.  The two little girls were wonderful to work with and had no problem posing, playing and smiling and their new puppy even got in on the action a little. Since these pictures were taken, their adorable new addition has arrived, and with a fun and growing family like this, I’m sure there’s lots of fun to be had at their house.

Take one incredibly lovely mamma-to-be, add a beautiful old farm and figure in a perfect evening (oh, and some chickens…) and you have a recipe for some amazing maternity pictures.  I loved photographing this mommy and her baby bump.  She’s so sweet and dealt with the bugs wonderfully while I kept suggesting more shots we could do.  I think she’ll agree, though, that fending off the mosquitoes was worth it.  The chickens thought so, too.

I was so excited when this Mamma-to-be said she wanted to do maternity portraits.  Not only is she flat out beautiful, but she was so much fun to photograph.  She was super easy-going and we had a bunch of laughs as she put up with some different ideas for poses that I hadn’t used before.  I also loved the fact that her little ones jumped in for a a few pictures.
