Casual Ottawa Maternity Portraits

September 2, 2010 | by Chantal Benoit Comments

Julie, who is not my cousin even though we have the last name, is expecting her third child.  Her first maternity was done in the studio in the dark background the second was done in the light background so I proposed to Julie this time we do an outdoor session.

We went to Petrie Island which is a beautiful area in Orleans for photos.  Benoit and Vincent joined us for the session.  We walked around taking a variety of images.  We played with blocks, paint, baby sign and rocks. 

It always a pleasure to work with Julie as she is open to all sort of ideas and often has her own.  Julie had brought some paint so we could do a photo of a pair of feet on her belly using Vincent’s feet.  When she came in to see her proofs, she told me Vincent decided to play with the red paint at home by colouring his feet again and walked all over the carpet.

This photo is my favourite as it is candid, casual and captures a story.

Un gros merci de ta confiance encore une fois.
