Maternity Photography in an Ottawa Winter Wonderland
Last weekend I had the pleasure to take some winter maternity photos of this great couple. They were real sports about trudging in the snow and getting the shots done–even if it meant no coat or mitts most of the time or walking in deep snow to get to THE SPOT for the best photo backdrop.
It was an absolutely GORGEOUS winter day. It had snowed a lot the day before, so the trees were covered in a blanket of white fluffy snow, while the ground was buried in several feet of snow in some areas. The skies were completely clouded over, which made for some beautifully diffused light. I was SO excited to be shooting these portraits on such a perfect day. This kind of weather is a photographer’s dream–at least it’s my dream. I had envisioned this winter photo session almost exactly how it turned out to be: fresh snow on the ground and on the pine tree branches, no wind and not too cold. It was only -5°C (which is pretty darn mild for Canadians east of BC.)
I look forward to photographing your little one after he/she born. Can’t wait!
