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.

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?

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.
My favorite of the album, the snow covered tree and mama are absolutely stunning!
