Winning Belly - Kanata Maternity Photographer

I had the pleasure of taking pictures of my belly contest winner and her family last week.  It's a good thing we did it when we did because her son decided to arrive 2 and a half weeks early shortly after the photo session!  I can't wait to meet the little guy and take his newborn photos!

isn't "big sister" a cutie?!

no wonder the baby came early...look at this beautiful family waiting for him!

52 Week Challenge - Week 12

This week's challenge was Spring.  I just love it when all the plants start to grow through all the dreary looking dead leaves and the landscape turns from brown to green...can't wait for the next couple of weeks when the flowers start coming out!  I've already noticed some crocuses at my parents' place.

If you would like to play along, next week's theme is "Planning".

52 Week Challenge - Week 11

This week's theme of "Underneath" was a lot of fun!  I was thinking of all these cool things to try then on Friday, I was having a blast playing with my God-daughter and she decided to crawl under her mom's legs which gave me the perfect pictures for my theme.  Sometimes spontaneous moments are even better than trying to plan something!

If you would like to play along, next week's theme is "Spring" (though around here it looks like we went straight from Winter to Summer :)).

Have a great week,

52 Week Challenge - Week 10

This week's theme was "Vegetables".  I decided to focus on a vegetable that we haven't seen much of in our house in the last several years until recently.  You see, my son has a bunch of allergies including an allergy to cucumber but recently we just found out that he's outgrown his cucumber allergy...woohoo!  Now i'm keeping my fingers crossed that his other allergies will disappear.

52 Week Challenge - Week 9

This weeks theme of "Spirit" was really challenging for me and I struggled to figure out what I wanted to take a photo of.  Fortunately, my son happened to have a Futsal game on the weekend which gave me some inspiration....Team Spirit!  For those of you that don't know what futsal is, it's very similar to soccer but it's much faster and it takes place indoors in a gymnasium.
