Walking into this family's home for our maternity session was so much fun. The excitement was everywhere. I loved this session. There were so many beautiful moments. So many beautiful memories. A family of four, soon to become a family of 6. I look forward to meeting these lovely twins soon.

A few years back I had the pleasure of photographing this family's first pregnancy. Last month, with my personal assistant in tow (my 7 year old daughter) I was able to capture these wonderful moments for Gabrielle and Troy as they await their beautiful baby #2. I look forward to meeting this baby very soon.

We found out a few weeks ago and kept things hush. We finally got the okay and are doing a dance of joy! Mark, Jess and Evie are expecting a new little person early next year! Baby #2! A couple of weeks ago I was welcomed into their lives, camera-ready to capture loving moments. Here are a few from the series. I look forward to posting more images of Jess' growing belly, this baby's birth and onward.
How lucky we all are to know this kind of love. Thank you, M + J for allow
It was Mother's Day when we told everyone that we were expecting our third child. We announced it with this photograph above. This photograph used to announce our pregnancy was taken right after we told our children that they were going to have a new baby. They were overjoyed and from that day forward they kissed my belly everyday until their baby sister arrived. My husband and I thought about having a third baby for sometime. It seemed to make sense that having two healthy c
It seemed as though we waited for this little beauty for a long time. All of us anticipating her healthy arrival. Doug, Amy and Bea couldn't wait to meet Daphne, and neither could I. I have realized that with each pregnancy a woman grows wiser to the risks involved. She grows to truly appreciate the miracle that is a healthy life. We know how intricate our human body is and when we think about a woman's body making an actual life that works perfectly it can be overwhelming.
Upon arrival, camera ready, these sisters where ready for their photo shoot. The anticipation of seeing one another was evident. These two beautiful souls last met in person 4 years prior. Not only were they excited to see one another, but Kymberley was excited to finally introduce her sister to her son, Ira. Meeting their nephew for the first time, Stephanie and Micheal simply fell in love. As well, Ira was all cuddles with his Aunt and Uncle and his new baby cousin soon to
Awaiting this new arrival has been one of the most exciting times I've experienced. Anthony and Jacquelyn, a couple who share a deep friendship and a love that ignites a room await their first baby. I was welcomed into their home, with much cheer, nervous excitment and a sincere calm prescence. The photos from this session are so very sweet and Momma and Papa look so beautiful. I can hardly wait to meet their first baby. An exciting time. An honour to be a part of this new mi
Entering a home that is filled with anticipation and sheer excitement is one of my favourite things to do. As a photographer I get to walk into many homes that are filled with a ton of magic. Upon entering Ian, Annie and Norah's lives, I immediately felt welcomed. The magic that steers their love is deep, pure and full of so much ease. It was simply a beautiful pregnancy photo session. I truly love all of the images I captured from their pregnancy session with me. These photo
Your kids are somewhat grown and you feel like you've moved passed that baby-making phase of your life until you meet that someone else who allows you to see new life in their eyes. Linda and Jack met later on in life. Their story is romantic. One that is very sweet and hopeful. Having raised two girls of her own, the thought of a new little baby wasn't something that Linda thought much about. Worrying about her two girls; making sure they were okay was Linda's most important
The simple silence and calm entry into Augusta's world evoked incredible photographs of this adorable baby. She not only charmed my camera with her smile, but her simple calm nature and radiance really stole the show. This 5 day old baby rocked my world. I'd never met such a little person that was ready to chat, listen and be. Not really your typical sleepy newborn baby. I am thrilled to have captured these photos for this family. With Love: Jo xoxo #birth #photography #pregn
Since the development of my new site I have lost my online photojournal archive from my past sessions. I have opened up my vault and have found so many treasures. One of which is a true gem, Hazel Ruby and her family. The moment I met Hazel within her Mother's belly still growing, I could feel all the love that surrounded her and the nervous anticipation she would soon ease once she entered the outside world. Meeting both of her parents, photographing them pregnant, and simpl
Editing these images brought back the exact same feelings I had during the entire process while capturing these photos at different times of Everly's development. I am so privileged to have had the opportunity to be so close to this family during this beautiful journey. These photos are only a few of some very moving images.
Thank you. And, welcome Everly. #pregnancy #birth #photography #newborn #family #baby #love #photo
Mark and Jess, awaiting their first baby. These two people will be the greatest parents. I have known them for a very long time and watching them grow and change together in love has been a true gift. Our family will be so blessed to not only witness the both of them raise their family, but we get to know a very special person that is their child, and our soon to be niece. Thank you for thinking of me for this photo session. #baby #pregnancy #photo #photography #family #love
