Red Umbrella Photography - Maternity shoot in Wellesley

Saturday afternoon I had the absolute pleasure of spending some time with Dan, Krista and her baby bump :)

I LOVE maternity shoots. I've said many times that it was seeing a maternity photographer featured on Oprah that first made me really want to pursue photography. With all my experience photographing bellies, I've never had this request: Krista wanted to do her maternity shoot outside in the middle of our bone-chiling Canadian winter!

I love a good challenge and was so excited to find ways to feature this beautiful mommy-to-be without letting her freeze. I love the shots we got and had such a fun time working with these two.

Can't wait to meet Baby Bergsma! Until then, here is a little sneak peak from Saturday's photo shoot.

Ontario is so beautiful. The big trees lining the roads country roads are perfect. It's one of my favourite streets to shoot on.

I love how much these two love each other. I couldn't help but smile, watching them together.

I think he's secretly hoping for a boy
This little baby is going to be so loved...and cuddled :)

Krista wears pregnancy so beautifully! Can you believe she's due in only three weeks?!

As soon as I saw this last photo it quickly became a favourite. I think it caught my eye because it has such a different look than I normally shoot. Love it.
