As a Toronto Maternity Photographer, it can be quite a challenge to find new and interesting ideas for captivating maternity photography.
Martina joined me just before sunrise at my favorite downtown location to capture a morning pregnancy portrait on the rocks overlooking the water. It was a beautiful morning with a warm breeze and a perfect opportunity to take portraits for an expectant mother.
The clouds on the morning of our session were stunning and my favorite image is the silhouette picture we captured of Martina. It’s absolutely stunning don’t you think?
Maternity Photography and Working with Various Light Sources
The sun quickly came about and the light was harsh when not diffused by the clouds in the sky. We had fun photographing backlit portraits and waiting for the sun to hide behind the clouds giving us a few moments or minutes of pretty soft diffused light.
Using the sun can work in your favor as a Toronto Maternity Photographer adding creativity to your pictures by adding a highlight to hair providing your images with an artistic edge.
Shooting directly into the sun can yield the most captivating maternity photography images.
During our time together, I quickly connected with Martina. She has a pleasant demeanor and is very friendly. She is a photographer herself and I know she will do very well on her journey in photography.
We crossed the street to another locale I love; however, the sun was blinding providing us with little opportunity to capture the images I envisioned. There were some areas of long grass next to a marsh and we took some images there.
Toronto Maternity Photographer Sessions Offering Two Locations
My sessions over the spring and summer have offered clients with two nearby locations enhancing their experience by providing additional variety in backdrops and scenery.
In the evening, Martina and I met again at another location just before sunset. Yes, I love shooting photography sessions just after sunrise or just prior to sunset. That’s not to say that I won’t photograph at other times of the day, it’s just my preference.
The new tutu dress has been a favorite among many clients this season. This mom-to-be wore it well and we took some imagery at a historical downtown location with a beautiful landscape. The cobblestone laneway makes for fantastic pictures along with the wrought iron fence.
As the sun was just about to set, we seized creative imagery using the porch lights that had just turned on – I was in photographer’s heaven so happy with how the imagery turned out in black & white.
Thank you for spending the day with me Martina. I enjoyed our time together and I wish you the utmost happiness in your journey into motherhood.
The fall is upon us and I look forward to more captivating maternity photography with the colors of the season soon upon us. To book your session or to learn more about my services as a Toronto maternity photographer, call us today at 905.449.2200. Only a few spots remain for the fall season.
