Red Jasper Artistry Maternity Leave for Ottawa, Il Portraits and Lasalle County Weddings.

November 05, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

This week I officially called it.  I put myself on the sidelines, dusted off the bench, started shining my cleats, and massaging the pitcher’s arm.   I am officially not booking any sessions until further notice (most likely the spring of 2014).  Besides this ever growing belly (my maternity shirts have turned into belly shirts and don’t ask how I still manage to lay on the ground for certain shots!) I have had a few pretty normal but painful complications in my pregnancy.  These side effects make pulling off a portrait session pretty painful and dreaded.  Don’t worry, I am still fulfilling previously scheduled sessions and meeting with 2014 prospective brides and grooms!  I’m in high hopes that a few weeks of massages, chiropractor visits, and super duper gentle yoga that I’ll be back to normal (all midwife approved and suggested approaches) just in time to deliver this amazing baby!

I remembered that a few months back I shared our pregnancy announcement but never shared the full session.  These images are too cute and in light of my woeful announcement I’d like to bring a smile to your face with an adorable and playfully proud big-sister-to-be.  I can’t say enough how glad I am to have these images.  It was a super fun way to share with the world that we were in fact expecting and keeping great memories.  If we ever decide to bring another child into our family, I would without a doubt announce by photo again.  Since this announcement has made airwaves, I have had the wonderful opportunity to photograph two more unique and wonderful announcements.  If you are missing an idea, but want to book a session, I’d love to help (once I’m back from maternity leave that is)!

 

 

My lovely husband helped me achieve this montage of multiple images.  He helpfully took my camera after I had adjusted  all the settings and followed my every instruction on where tostand and hold the camera.  I think the results were outstanding!

At age 2 1/2 my little Ruby  is a bundle of energy and would rather have 10 diaper changes than sit down for 2 pictures.  Luckily her mama is pretty good at capturing her in motion.

We announced our little secret to Daddy using this shirt.  Ruby followed him from room to room asking him to look at the alphabets on her shirt.  He kept replying "Yeah I see it.  So what?"  He claims he thought it was a "thoughtful" shirt from Grandma.  hehehe.  Then he saw me through the mirror around a corner giggling.  I like to play tricks in this house, but this was a trick that he played on himself!
