Samantha & Mike / From wedding to pregnancy portraits

We have had the wonderful honour of being witness to all the important milestones of Samantha and Mike’s journey together.  From their gorgeous wedding in Napa, to their post-wedding portraits, and then through shooting their pregnancy portraits, it has been a pleasure to have known this couple, and a privilege.  It is especially sweet to know that Samantha is pregnant with twins and we very much look forward to meeting their new additions to the family!

For this particular pregnancy portrait shoot, Samantha and Mike wanted somewhere comfortable and familiar, so we chose to hold the session in their home, with their very cute little pet dog.  As you can see, Samantha and Mike readied many props, not only to welcome the twins and to make this shoot extra special, but to create a very adorable set of portraits.  It is very clear that Mike is one proud father-to-be and Samantha makes one beautiful mother-in-waiting!  We hope that we’ll be able to continue taking portraits of this wonderful family, especially when they become a family of five!

JULIA / On Being Happy

In my experience, expectant mothers who come to me for pregnancy portraits are usually a little nervous about the shoot. Julia is one of the exceptions to this rule… and once you meet her, you can see why.

From a blushing bride to a radiant mother-to-be, every time we see her, Julia’s always had a smile on her face. The shoot itself was fun, full of laughter and definitely belongs in my happy memories.

I truly believe that Julia’s cheerfulness and optimistic outlook on life will create a wonderful, warm environment in which to bring up a child, and hope that I’ll be present at more future happy moments
