Dows Lake Winter Maternity Photo Session
Ottawa Maternity Photographers
Last week I had the pleasure to shoot a Dows Lake winter maternity photo session with this awesome couple. The weather forecast said that the temperature would be a balmy -2°C. However, with the wind chill factor, it was about -13°C, which was quite chilly. However, these guys were troopers. Not only did they pose for their maternity photo session without their coats, but they did it with smiles on their faces. They were so great to work with, which made my job a lot easier and enjoyable.
The day we shot their maternity photo session was the day of their wedding anniversary. And the cute thing was that they chose Dow’s Lake as the location for their maternity photo shoot because it’s where they got married. How swoon worthy is that?
I must mention a bitter-sweet fact. When they booked their session a few months ago, they had asked if their dog, Heidi, could be included in the shot. Of course, I’d be happy to shoot portraits of them with their beloved pet. Sadly she passed away recently. So, they brought her dog collar to be included in the shoot in memory of sweet Heidi. You can see her heart shaped name tag pinned to his shirt in the photos. I was more than happy to include a closeup of them holding Heidi’s name tag/collar for a belly closeup. It’s sad that Heidi couldn’t be in their maternity shoot, but I’m happy for them that they could still have a part of her with them in their photos.
