Monica is one of those people who just makes you feel like you have known her forever right from the moment you meet. I was introduced to her about a year ago, and now I am lucky enough to call her a dear friend. As you can imagine, when Monica & her husband Nathan announced that they were expecting her third child (lovingly named “Très” for now) I was so excited to have the chance to photography her maternity session.
This is one busy family, with a 4 year old, 2 year old, and a new puppy! Rather than a chaotic and fun shoot with the whole family, Monica opted for a session with just her. Nathan took their 2 kids and their new puppy out for a few hours. Mom and I had some quiet time to document her third baby belly.
It was a cold, stormy day, and the wind was whipping around us! Monica loves storms, so it was a perfect touch to add a dark and stormy sky to her photos. It felt so “gone with the wind”! To make things even better, all of these photos were taken right in Monica & Nathan’s (amazing) backyard. I’m SO insanely jealous of their property! What an incredible spot for their growing family.
Autumn is one of the BEST times to schedule a photo shoot – not only are the colours incredible, but it is fun to be able to play with layers and different clothes without having to be too warm or cold! This moody fall day definitely did not disappoint.
Thanks to Monica for having me document her third baby! I can hardly wait to meet the little one (hard to believe it is 1.5 months away still)! While we wait for sweet little Très to arrive, here are a few of my favourite photos from Monica’s maternity shoot.
See what I mean? Totally “Gone with the wind”!
