New River Beach Maternity Portraits // Abbie & Dalen

2014-07-03 PORTRAITS Abbie & Dalen B001

Two years ago almost to the day of their maternity session, I photographed Abbie and Dalen’s wedding. It was a beautiful day at the Ganong Nature Park and one of the most beautiful weddings I have photographed. It was also a defining wedding for me, making realize the kind of weddings and couples I find the most inspiring to work with. So when Abbie emailed me in the spring to tell me they were expecting a wee babe and asked me to photograph this wonderful new chapter in their lives I happily agreed. 

We met at New River beach on an overcast evening and magic ensued. Between their adorableness, stylish and oh-so-perfect wardrobe choices and the gorgeous light that filtered and at times peaked out through the clouds, Abbie and Dalen’s maternity session is one of the my favourite maternity sessions ever! Abbie and Dalen still look at each other like they did during their engagement session and on their wedding day, and they still tease and joke like best friends do. Everything I loved about working with them before remained. What was different however, was a new excitement that abounded as they enjoyed this time of anticipation. In September their sweet little nugget will be born and their lives will change forever. Their maternity portrait session was the perfect opportunity both to celebrate this new adventure while soaking in the still present “just the two of us.”

Enjoy these photos, and please get in touch if you are interested in collaborating with me for own maternity session!

Love & Sunshine,
