Who else thinks Andrea is a glamour gal as an expectant mother? When Andrea called to chat about her session I envisioned her as on the cover of a mag and we discussed this look, with flowing fabric, and big hair.
I met Francine through her amazing makeup skills and we have work together in the past so when she asked if I would do her images I was over the moon thrilled. One thing about this mamma is the amount of faith she has and how much thought she put into her session. This is her second child and she made sure to have some little details to include her entire family. There were candles with 3 wicks to represent her growing little family, a henna tattoo done by Charcoal - Eclectic Artisan Emporium and Henna Lounge collaborated with her eldest daughter on outfit choice and styling (can you say awe) and had some pintrest ‘inspo’ on hand.
I picked her up at her home and met Sarah Bowman who agreed to create some BTS video footage (thank you so much), and we all headed out to one of her favorite summer swimming holes - Nanaimo River just out by Cassidy. We arrived and immediately spotted a berry bush of sorts that just screamed at us, it was so colorful, we had to play. After spending some time shooting we moved on down to the river stopping along the way to shoot with beautiful cedar trees and some candles. We finally made it to the river only to sit and stare at the rushing waters and enjoy a little moment of wonder. We finished our session by the river and headed back to the car to end the day.
