What a stunning night for these maternity photos! Venessa and Greg met me in downtown Edmonton and we wandered through the city, stopping where we liked and chatting the whole time. We ended up below the Shaw Conference center just as the sun was about to hit the river and the light was just right. We had to change things up a bit, as they were setting up for the Edmonton Marathon, so there was definitely more “stuff” around. Goes to show that regardless of how much scouting we do, sometimes we need to flexible and adapt.
I love wandering Edmonton and switching up where we shoot. It keeps things interesting and it keeps our work fresh.
Venessa rocked her maternity photos! Her hair is AMAZING (right?!) and her smile lit up the photos. I love it when dads are a part of the session too. Venessa and Greg have such a tangible connection, it was easy to capture it.
I’ve been lucky enough to meet Venessa, and other amazing women, through Kellie Willie. Kellie runs a fitness class called Fit Your Life – although that doesn’t even sum up the community she has created with her classes. I could gush forever so you can read my blog post about her here – and find her website here. (she’s taking a short maternity break, but she’ll be back offering classes before we know it!)
We met Venessa and Greg’s newborn son this week, and he was a dream to photograph! His photos coming soon.
