I have been lucky enough to find myself living in one of the most beautiful places in Canada, photographing some of the sweetest people you could ever hope to meet – and this event had a LOT of wonderful people.

You all know my story, but it was interesting hearing everyone else and what they were hoping to gain from Fiona’s knowledge of studio based family, maternity & newborn portraits.

This is the maternity photo shoot that started it all – so it seemed fitting that they would be my first photo post. This is Jesse and Michelle’s first child and they wanted to capture that beautiful baby bump at its prime.
