Beach maternity session

{iona beach maternity photographer} - expecting Ashe

Tina & Jim are the sweetest.  That is all you need to know.

But I'll tell you more, because I like talking about this session, and because they're just so beautiful together.  Little Ashe was soon-to-be-born when I photographed this session (now he's 5 months old!  Which is crazy.) and his adorable parents were brimming over with happiness and excitement and, well, the fact that they are head over heels in love.  (It felt a little more like an engagement session than a maternity session - their love for each other was so tangible.  And I think that's absolutely awesome.)

This was February; no, you wouldn't think it to look at these photos, but yes, we were freezing the entire session.  And yet - that winter light!  It's entirely unlike the saturated summer light.  It's almost translucent.  A little bit magical.  It shimmers when it touches my lens.  I love it.

The blanket they wrapped themselves in was handmade by Jim's grandmother, and Tina's sweater belonged to Jim's dad.  It's my favourite thing when these small items have real meaning.

And not too long after this maternity session, their little Ashe was born!  HE IS VERY VERY CUTE.  I can't wait to share his newborn photos with you!
