Summer Ottawa Arboretum Pregnancy Pictures

Summer Ottawa Arboretum Pregnancy Pictures

So, a few days ago I had the pleasure to take some summer Ottawa arboretum pregnancy pictures with this lovely couple. This was my first portrait session since the COVID shutdown. As of June 12th, photographers are back open in the 2nd phase of reopening. Yay! I’m so happy to finally be able to work again.

It was a beautiful sunny day. It was swealtering all that day, but by the evening, it was so much nicer and with a little breaze blowing. (I thought for sure I’d be a sweaty mess by the end of the shoot. But it all turned out fine. I still looked faily normal and not all wilted. Ha! Ha!)

These two did so well in front of the camera. Most people rarely get in front of the lens of a professional photographer, so they’re shy for the shoot. However, they did exceptionally well, as you can see by their photos. I got some genuine smiles. I think they look fantastic in their photos and I’m so happy that I could capture these special memories for them. After all, this is their first child.


I absolutely love shooting maternity sessions. They’re right up there with engagement sessions as far as my favourite type of portrait sessions to shoot. I guess I really like working with couples.

I look forward to working with these two lovelies again when their little one arrives in the world. Until then, I hope that you enjoy these photos.

Book a Session

If you’re looking to do an outdoor portrait session, I’d love to hear from you. You can either contact me or check out my pricing page to see what session you would like to book. I shoot outdoor maternity, family and baby portraits. I also shoot cake smash sessions. Since only up to 10 people can be present for weddings during this 2nd phase of reopening, I’m able to also photograph elopements. I hope to hear from you soon.
