Frost & Snowflakes Winter Maternity Session

Little Lamb Photography is back with another stunning gallery full of Wintery awesomeness. This session was taken at 32 weeks, which proved to be a great thing for this little family. Their little girl was born early just a few days later!

From the photographer:

This couple wanted an outdoor winter maternity photo session in the snow. The day we scheduled actually ended up snowing, which created such a beautiful winter wonderland background and well as beautiful snowflakes falling everywhere. It was a good thing we shot their maternity session when she was only 32 weeks pregnant, because their daughter was born a few days later–two months early! At least they have these maternity photos to cherish. Their preemie is now a healthy baby girl.

– Linda, Little Lamb Photography

 

I love, love snow on trees and this session is proof that natural backdrops are a great compliment to every shoot. What better way to celebrate your pregnancy than with a session like this?

Without further adieu …

Check out this pregnancy announcement!

From the mother shown in these photographs:

I had a feeling (and I was hoping!) that I might be pregnant as I was a few days late, so I purchased a couple of pregnancy tests. My husband David and I were packing for our summer vacation at the cottage, so I decided to take the test before we left for our trip. When the test came back negative, I was very disappointed, especially so as we had been trying to start a family for some time. I told David and he was disappointed too but he could also see how it affected me so he did his best to try and make me smile and move past the test result. We continued to pack for our vacation, and unbeknownst to David, I decided to pack another pregnancy test, just in case.

Fast forward five days into our vacation and I was still unusually late. I decided to take the other pregnancy test without telling David – I thought if I did let him know, I might jinx the result. After taking the test, the result flashed up – it was positive!!! My hands were shaking as I held the test – I just couldn’t believe it! I was so excited that I raced outside to find David. When I found him, I told him to close his eyes and hold out his hands. After reading the result, David was so surprised and extremely happy. He high-fived me (which I thought was hilarious) and then gave me a big hug and kiss too!

A few weeks ago, my cousin shared with me that she is expecting a baby in April and asked me for some advice on things she needed to buy to get ready for the baby. I told her that the baby gear industry is like the wedding industry – there is no limit to what’s available and it can be hard not to get sucked in by all the cute little things you think you need to buy. Knowing that, we didn’t go crazy buying stuff at all. As a close friend told me – you really don’t need much during the first few months. The really important things are love and attention, food, some clothes and a safe and warm place to sleep. Anything beyond that you can easily get later (stores are still open!) and having some time at home with your baby can really help you get to know each other better and help determine what other essentials they may need.

For us, we only got what we thought were the essentials, namely a car seat, a bassinet, a few clothes (onesies and sleepers), blankets for swaddling baby, diapers and a change pad. Everything else we purchased as needed or were received as gifts from family and friends and from my baby shower. Due to this approach, I can honestly say that there’s only one thing we bought that our baby didn’t really use – a bouncing chair – she just didn’t enjoy sitting in it!

Simple and timeless all in one photograph, this image is sure to be a keepsake.

Countryside Maternity Session by Little Lamb Photography

This is our FIRST ever maternity session submission and we have to say that we LOVED every second of the time we spent looking through these images. You’ll have to scroll to the bottom and follow the link to Little Lamb Photography’s website to see the whole gallery.

In the meantime, we have to say – just. wow.

Maternity photography is all about capturing a fleeting moment. New parents. New families. A whole new life. Everything about it is inspiring and beautiful and Linda not only captured it here, but we felt as though the images are timeless heirlooms that this couple and future generations will be able to look back on and gasp at the beauty of this mother and the love between these two in these photographs.

So without further adieu.

Linda Borrego from Little Lamb Photography shot this countryside maternity photography session around Wakefield, QC Canada. We fell in love with the location. Between the field of Queen Anne’s Lace, the covered bridge and the hay field, we can’t help but adore the organic feel of this session.

Linda had this to say about the session:

“This couple wanted to have their photos taken in a field of Queen Anne’s lace. After driving around a bit to scout locations, we ended up at this beautiful spot in the countryside. It had an old covered bridge, lots of farmers’ fields as well as this open field of Queen Anne’s lace. It ended up being a perfect spot on a perfect night. I love shooting during golden hour, so we shot this in the early evening. I especially love to include the partner in maternity sessions, since both people are involved in the love and care for the baby.”

We hope you enjoy this session as much as we did!

Can we just stop right here and say WOW! Look at the glow on this mama in the next picture. With the golden hour lighting and this beautiful field of Queen Anne’s Lace, this is a heirloom that will forever completely and beautifully capture this pregnancy for generations to come.
