Carolynne & Ryan’s Maternity Session | Whitby Maternity Photographer

When Carolynne first reached out to inquire about maternity and newborn photos, she mentioned Starbucks in her email. I knew at that moment, we were destined to work together! I met Carolynne and Ryan at Heber Down, in North Whitby on a chilly February afternoon. We started with a series of photos in cozy winter clothes, and then Carolynne changed outfits and we took some stunning portraits of her in an amazing red gown by Amy Corneau. I’m in love with what we captured that day. I don’t often get couples willing to brave the cold, but the results are always so beautiful! Now, we patiently wait for little babe’s arrival!

The Second Shoot

After our session was done, and the photos had been revealed, I asked Carolynne if she could join me in my studio. I was hoping for a short session together so I could capture some images I needed for an upcoming event. So, we got together the following week and created some in-studio portraits as well. We worked with 2 outfits from my studio collection, and 2 different looks. I’m also equally in love with these photos!

Katie’s Maternity Session | Whitby Maternity Photographer

Katie reached out to me about a month before her due date, inquiring about maternity and newborn photos. Katie is the Owner and Artistic Director at Katie’s Dance Connection in Oshawa, so she is one busy lady! I was thrilled to be able to get her in for her maternity photos around week 37, and prebook her in for newborn photos in August. Katie, her husband John, and their 3 year old son Jack, joined me at Heber Down in Whitby on a beautiful evening in July to spend some time together and capture this time in their lives before they welcome their little girl into the world.

Little Jack was excited to give some loving to his mom and hug his baby sister in her belly. He’s going to be such a  great big brother, I can tell! I can’t wait to have this whole family back into my studio next week for baby girl’s newborn photos!

Kerry | Whitby Maternity Photography

I was so excited to capture these maternity photos for Kerry and her family. Maternity photos are one of my favourite to capture! It’s such a special time, and not one that typically happens too often in each of our lives, so it’s great to document his time and show how beautiful it is!

I first met Kerry during the holiday season last year. She brought her first son, Declan, into the studio for some holiday photos. He was just a little guy then, around 7 months or so if I remember correctly, so it was a lot of fun seeing him almost a year later, and seeing how much he has grown and what a fun little guy he has become! Kerry also brought this gorgeous custom made maternity gown, which photographed beautifully! She also brought a casual outfit, for some more laid back photos with her family as well. We met at Heber Downs, in Whitby, which gave us a great variety of places to shoot. Definitely one of my favourite spots!

Here are just a few of my favourites from the session!
