I had butterflies in my tummy and I was running on adrenaline cuz I really can’t eat in the morning and boy was this an early shoot.
I don’t get that much of a chance to do shoots like this but when it happens, I get beyond excited and almost can’t sleep the night before. After all what 8 month pregnant mom to be wants to wake up before dawn and get herself all pretty and head on down to the beach to take shots of her in front of the sun, who? Not many, I wish there were more, so you can understand how excited I was about this shoot.
Not only is Natalie beautiful and cute and a perfect prego model but she’s also family, my husband’s cousin and she lives all the way in Ottawa, and she drove 5 hours to come and do a session with me. I was so touched.
They were calling for rain on Saturday but I knew, I prayed and I knew that it was going to be ok, wether the sun came out or not. As we woke up at 4am and looked out we saw lots of clouds but clear spots and no rain, woo hoo. The only other thing was that it was just about FREEZING,lol. Only cuz it was so windy by the water did it make it feel like it was winter again,lol. Natalie and her hubby Jeff braved it out though and Nat fought the wind with all her might, a few times I thought she was going to be swept away by that gush of wind as she’s a tiny little thing, that didn’t happen fortunately,lol.
What did happen was awesome though, sun came out a little later than expected, but it came out and we got some wonderful and beautiful shots of this happy couple who are excitingly expecting their first and are waiting to find out if this is a girl or boy at the birth, now that’s patience.
I could go on and on about this session, but I’ll let the images speak for themselves, it was an awesome day and I can’t thank Nat and Jeff for driving all that way, waking up in the middle of the night,lol, and for allowing me to capture such a special time in their lives.
I have sooo many more that I want to edit, but I wanted to get a few out now and I will add a few more to this post in the next day or so.
