Getting ahold of this lady was taxing at first as she's a busy bee and so am I but after a good amount of phone tag, we finally got her booked in and we did her session out in the mountains on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. It wasn't as cold as some of my other sessions had been so we seized the opportunity and the results were stunning!
Imagine my delight when this lovely lady messaged me one night to book a mountain maternity session & she told me she was from Edmonton. She hadn't been able to find anyone there to do what she was looking for and then she found me & was willing to drive down here to Calgary/Banff to have me do her maternity session. She had a dress already and I was so excited. She was already further along than I usually recommend but that just means her belly would be more full for photos which is always a good thing!
She messaged me the night before her session to tell me she was coming but felt contractions starting which had me freaking out given we were going to the mountains and in the Banff area there is no hospital that delivers, she would need to drive to Canmore & hopefully would make it. I asked if she wanted to cancel and she said no, she HAD to do this. So we carried on & I loaded my car that night, met my assistant in the morning and we headed to the mountains & found a great location in Bow Falls, in the heart of Banff.
When I met up with Monique, she was having quite heavy contractions but insisted we kept going & she just worked through them as we shot out on the snow and ice! What a trooper this mama was, my hero! We finished her session early because I was concerned she'd have her baby right on the snow there and she went to Calgary to be checked! Turns out she was in active labour and her sweet little boy came a few days later :) A beautiful story with a happy ending!
This was such a fun session! I have never met such a fun family! Ty messaged me only a couple weeks before her session was to take place and originally she wanted to just have a maternity session done in her home but soon changed her mind once she saw the mountain maternity sessions on my website. When we met in the mountains on this exceptional April day, it was love at first sight and magic was made! She was stunning in every dress I put her in and we laughed so much as she changed and the love between her and Jason was pure magic. I didnt have to tell them what to do or how to pose, they just set the stage with their emotions and it was amazing!
At the end of the session Ty had such a great time she asked me to shoot her baby's newborn session when she arrived and we did it just last weekend. Like baby B was absolutely perfect. Watch for her session on the blog in a couple weeks !
