stephanie's maternity session

This maternity session is so special to me. Stephanie has been a friend ever since I photographed her destination wedding in 2013. I've watched her blossom into an incredibly talented business owner, we've worked together on so many projects, and now to see her quickly approaching's simply the best. 

I just know she will make the most wonderful mama to a gorgeous baby girl. Enjoy a few of my favourite photos from Stephanie's maternity session in her home!

intimate backyard barn wedding inspiration

While enjoying a delicious meal during a wedding last November, I had the pleasure of chatting with Melissa, an interior design guru turned wedding stylist. I loved hearing all about her visions for creating a dreamy set up in the backyard of her property. I told her immediately that I was up for anything. A few weeks later we set a date and I showed up to Mel's farm on a chilly Sunday afternoon, very unsure of what exactly I'd be shooting. 

She had three set ups ready to shoot and Tanya from Presh Floral was already working her magic with greenery and blooms to make it come to life. Mel had arranged for Cat from Cake Whisperer to create a masterpiece for the shoot and as soon as I heard that, I knew it was going to be an amazing afternoon. 

I'm very excited to share these images on my blog this morning. They're full of wedding inspiration for weddings of all seasons, and I just know my brides will love seeing these beautiful and intimate details. Enjoy!
