Personal Project | 16 Weeks [Bump Watch]

undefined

Here we are, 16 Weeks. Quick and simple this time around, just a few snaps of me at an abandoned mall in town, still wearing my coat because it was a bit chilly out…and yet, they’re some of my favourite shots to date. Sometimes quick and simple really works.

undefined undefined undefined I could still pull off looking fairly un-pregnant up until this point, but not anymore, so expect the rest of the weeks to feature the bump much more!

Until then,

Thanks so much!

*SNEAK PEEK* | The Dunfields [Norton, NB Wedding Photographer]

undefined

Well here we are, a sneak peek of my first wedding of the year! Not having done much wedding photography in the past, I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Stacey and Derek’s small, laid-back wedding was the perfect way for me to get my feet wet. I was so happy when they asked me to photograph their special day, as I had had a lot of fun doing their family photos back in November.  

The day was quite beautiful, sunny and bright, but it was probably a bit too chilly for the girls; luckily Stacey had bought them all brightly coloured shawls to wear over their dresses, which added the perfect pop of colour and provided a little bit of warmth. Stacey did such a good job of incorporating fun Spring colours into their black and white themed wedding, and everyone looked really beautiful (except for the boys, who looked handsome!)  They had their ceremony in a little country church in Norton and then gathered for a small reception at a restaurant which sits behind a golf course, so we had lots of room to take pictures. I love how they made sure to involve their children, family, and friends into the event, everything felt really casual and natural, which I think is one of the most important things.

It was really hard for me to narrow down which photos to show, so this sneak peek is probably a bit bigger than it should be, but there’s still lots more to come! I hope you all enjoy 🙂

Personal Project | 15 Weeks [Bump Watch]

Here we are, the last ‘catch up’ Bump post, starting after this these posts should only be a weekly feature (unless I fall behind again…) It’s a difficult time of year to take photos, since the weather is still pretty unpredictable, plus we had kind of an unusual week with the babysitter’s so I’ve had my little bébé at home with me more than usual, which is more than ok, it just makes it hard for this pregnant mama to get out and take some photos! I remember back in 2008 when I did the 365 challenge (a self portrait a day for a year), even then with no children and a ton of free time, I found it hard to get out and take a photo everyday. If only I could go back and tell myself that I had all the time in the world!  Ah well, a busy life filled with the things you love is a good life, right? 🙂

Tomorrow I am shooting my first wedding of the year (yay!), so expect to see a few sneak peeks from that sometime next week!

(Finally, note that I am wearing heels? This is a big deal for me if you know me at all, I am not a heel kind of person-I love the look, I just can’t seem to walk comfortably in them…too much of a tomboy I guess!)

Until next time,

 

Faye - LOVE the heels – you totally rocked it! Nice collection – I need to learn from you about doing self portraits – I am the worst at it! You seem to have it down pat!

Personal Project | 14 Weeks [Bump Watch]

Moving right along with these posts, here are my shots for 14 Weeks (I decided to use this week to demonstrate the use of a prop for a shoot; in this case, I did a ‘reading’ theme since this was the week I finally finished reading a book-quite a feat for me these days! I also took these shots indoors, since I know that our weather does not always allow for outdoor shoots all the time, especially for 6 months straight.)

undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined I have a few more ideas for ‘themed’ shoots I want to do later on (including a classic ‘boy or girl’ scenario on the week of my ultrasound), but I’m open to any suggestions! As I said, this package is very customizable, which makes it so much fun for me as the photograpgher (and in this case, the model).

Until next time,

Personal Project | 13 Weeks [Bump Watch]

I forgot to mention something important in my last Bump Watch post: I WILL be working throughout my pregnancy for as long as humanly possible!  Luckily with Victor I had a great second and third trimester with hardly any issues with my back or joints, meaning I should be ok to continue doing sessions throughout the spring and summer.  I may be pregnant, but my fingers can still press the shutter 🙂 So please, if you are thinking of booking a spring or summer session with me, contact me!

Ok, now that that’s out of the way, here are my shots from Week 13 (I’m showing much earlier this time around, which  means looking a little thicker around the middle sooner than I would like, but as I said before, I’m trying to embrace it and not stress too much…pregnant women are beautiful, I truly believe that, so I should believe it about myself too!)
