Winter Maternity Photos Downtown Ottawa
Little Lamb Photography | Pregnancy Photographer
Last week I had the pleasure to photograph some winter maternity photos downtown Ottawa, ON. This particular couple wanted outdoor winter pregnancy photos, so we met downtown Ottawa for the photo session. We were in luck as it had snowed a few days earlier and then on the same day it snowed again, adding such a beautiful touch to their winter portraits. I love shooting outdoor portraits in the winter as it’s usually slightly overcast, which is such beautiful lighting for portraits. And when there’s snow on the ground and some snow falling down, it makes the photos all the more magical.
During the session, the light snow ended up turning into a mini blizzard. It looked great for the photos, but made it a bit harder to shoot while keeping my cameras from getting all wet. Lucky for me I had brought a golf umbrella and Jesse’s dad held it over me while I was shooting.
These guys were a dream to shoot. They were fun and down-to-earth people, which made my job that much easier. I also like the cultural touches that they brought for the photo session. I tell my couples to bring a couple of things to their photo session that we can use in the photos. Along with a couple of small toys and trinkets for the baby, they also brought a unique prop for their photo shoot. The papa-to-be is of first nations decent, so he brought along some items used in a native American ritual called smudging. I hope that you enjoy these winter maternity portraits. 🙂
If you’re pregnant and want unique and beautiful outdoor pregnancy photos, I would love to hear from you. Contact me today to book your outdoor maternity session. I shoot outdoor maternity photos in the spring, summer, fall and winter in and around Ottawa, ON and Gatineau, QC. I hope to hear from you soon. 😀
