I love to shoot portrait photography! And the shot is always better when my subject is unaware that I am there. It's great fun and I am always honoured when asked to do it.

Samantha's & Ryan's maternity shoot.

I worked with Samantha at LaCachette restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
I was thrilled when she contacted me to shoot these portraits for her.
She was quite nervous when we first started. Actually, she was very nervous!
We took our time, had a visit, she relaxed and did a great job!
She is a gorgeous woman!

We shot everything with just available window light. My favorite way to shoot!

This shot with both Sam and Ryan is one of favorites! They're just an adorable couple.
He did everything he could for her during the shoot to make her feel more comfortable.
And...he was a great help to me! Held up my backdrops up for me.
Thanks Ryan!

The first time I walked into their home and saw the loft, I knew I wanted to use it.
We got some really cool shots from this angle.
Sam was quite 'comfy cozy' in these shots.
I told her to just melt into Ryan...and she did!
I think she would have been quite happy to shoot the rest right there in his arms.

Thank you Ryan and Sam for allowing me to capture this amazing time.
I am looking forward to meeting your little one...I'll be sure to bring my camera!
