Cochrane Maternity – woo hoo!
I know that some of you will be surprised to see a maternity session on my blog. A couple of years ago I attempted to do a couple of maternity sessions in my studio, with the black backdrop and the white fabric. All I’m going to say about that is that it didn’t go well. I didn’t enjoy it so I just quit and didn’t try again. That brings us to about a month ago when Melanie called me. She was so excited for her baby and really wanted to have maternity pictures. I told her I don’t do them, just as I told almost everyone else that has called in the past 3 years. I’d been thinking about giving it another try but knew that I had to have just the right person that wanted the non-traditional style maternity portraits. Melanie, with all of her excitement, seemed to be the person.
I drove out to Cochrane, which is about a bazillion miles from my house in Lake Chaparral in Calgary, and enjoyed the quiet drive – so the day was starting off well. It got even better when she opened her door with a big smile, introduced me to big brother who was sitting in a highchair with an icecream cone, and big sister with her super sweet disposition. When she showed me around her amazing house, with all of the colorful bedrooms I was ecstatic. Ok, maybe you think I’m gushing now but I’m really not, I was happy!
So,if you are looking for fun, contemporary maternity portraits and you live in or anywhere semi-close to Calgary – call me! I loved it and can’t wait to try again.
Here is Melanie and her 2 cuties. Melanie was 38 (ish) weeks pregant and as of yesterday is cuddling with her new baby boy!
