Winter Maternity Photos Ottawa Experimental Farm | Ottawa Maternity Photography
With winter soon upon us, I wanted to share some winter maternity photos at the Ottawa Experimental Farm. Despite it being a chilly -13ºC with the windchill factor, this cute couple were good sports about doing the outdoor photo shoot. I’m always game if my clients are too, in terms of doing a photo shoot.
I’m so happy with how well these winter maternity photos turned out. Winter portraits are quickly becoming a favourite of mine to shoot. Luckily we did the shoot that day, because their baby arrived four weeks early and was born the morning after the maternity session.
If you’re thinking about doing a maternity photo shoot, please contact me. I’d love to photograph it. All maternity photo sessions are shot outdoors as I’m a natural light photographer. I love shooting outdoors, so it doesn’t matter about the season. Any season is perfect for outdoor maternity photos. I welcome and encourage you to include your partner in your maternity photo shoot. It’s highly recommended for pregnant women to schedule their photo session when they’re between 28-32 weeks pregnant. This particular time frame is preferable, so that you still feel well enough to walk around, and also sometimes babies like to arrive earlier than planned this couple’s baby can attest to. You can view more of my outdoor maternity photos.
What to Wear
If you have no clue what to wear for your outdoor maternity photo session, please read my blog post, What to wear for Maternity photos.
For my readers who aren’t pregnant please note that I also shoot wedding photography, cake smash photography and newborn photography.
With that I leave you with a quote by Harriette Hartigan: “Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”
