I had a great time collaborating with Michelle for her summer maternity session! We chose two outfits; a gorgeous custom made maternity gown from down south, and a light and airy summer dress for the more casual part of the session. Can I just put it out there that Michelle has an amazing sense of style? From her light orange summer dress down the smallest accessory; gorgeous!
Thank you to Michelle, who had so much patience as we tried different poses, angles, locations, and outfits over the course of a few hours. The mosquitoes grew in numbers as the sun went down, and the water of Great Slave Lake was as chilly as a northern Canadian lake in the summer time. We kept thinking, "but just wait until we see the photos, then it will be so worth it!".
I think it was. :)
I had the pleasure of photographing this fierce mama last weekend. At 37 weeks pregnant she completely rocked the photography session, oozing soul and confidence in all her poses and expressions. We chose two different outfits for the session; a custom maternity gown that I ordered from down south, and a more casual outfit that would speak to her personality. I was really excited to hear that Katelyn is an avid nature-goer and duck hunter and wanted to use that for outfit inspiration. I said heck yes!
Hope you enjoy the highlights from our fun evening out by the water.
Please note: The equipment in this session was used safely as a dummy prop ONLY-exclusively for artistic purposes in this photo session.

Good morning everyone!
I am excited to feature Katie and Trevor on the blog this morning. We really couldn't have asked for a better evening for our session. The weather was fantastic, and the warm summer breeze warded off some of the mosquitoes. Yellowknife summers are my favourite thing!
It was a pleasure being able to meet and photograph Trevor and Katie for such a special milestone. Not long now before they finally get to meet their sweet son or daughter; I can't wait to be able to photograph them all together as a new little family. They are going to be amazing parents!
