Maternity: Janelle’s Luminous Portraits

Every time I am lucky enough to do a maternity shoot I love them more and more.    There is something so magical about pregnancy, creating a human and the closeness you share with that tiny person while they are still so much a part of you.  Getting to capture that fleeting moment in a woman’s life means everything to me and getting to create art from it that they will cherish for all time makes my heart sing.

This beautiful mama is Janelle.  I feel so lucky to have met this vibrant soul, she is just so beautiful inside and out.  Her session was so fun and inspiring. I loved photographing her on the backlight so much that I basically never moved her. The way the light wraps around the pregnant form was just too pretty to do anything else.  We finished off her session with some mother+daughter images, couples portraits, and family portraits in the beautiful Botanic Gardens.  Getting to witness the love between Janelle and her 10 year old daughter was pure magic. She is such a wonderful momma to her sweet little girl, baby Leo is so lucky to be coming into such a loving and happy family. Thank you Janelle for choosing me and trusting me to capture this special time in your life, I wish you all the best on this next exciting chapter of your life.
