Being first time preggos and soon-to-be parents, we were more than thrilled to have our first pregnancy captured on film. Surprisingly, I haven’t really been capturing my pregnancy journey and thought that a maternity shoot might make up for it. Choosing a photographer was a no brainer. I’ve been creeping and following Whitney Heard for some time now through social media. Her photographs capture natural light and convey indescribable emotions. She took both digital and film photographs for us (you may see the difference below) and we were absolutely blown away by her talent! Personally, I find it hard to be in front of the camera but she made us feel comfortable during our entire photoshoot. This is not a sponsored post – we paid for the services Whitney provided and we were absolutely glad we took the time to capture a special moment in our lives. I also think it’s important to support talented people who are doing what they love every day!
Our very first stop was Chudleigh’s Farm in Milton, Ontario. It’s apple picking season, but we arrived to the orchard about an hour before close and there was absolutely no one in sight! Take about perfect timing for our photoshoot.
After the apple orchard, we got in our cars and hopped over to Andrews’ Scenic Acres to take in the dahlia flower field during sunset. If you haven’t already visited this year, you still may be able to see the beautiful dahlias and not to mention pick your own. I don’t know why I haven’t found this place sooner! I highly recommend it not only for the dahlias but for the corn and sunflower fields as well. We arrived within nearly 30 minutes to close and got stick in the field while the sprinklers went off for the evening! The sprinklers actually turned out to be great for our photos and not to mention super refreshing for this mama-to-be (it was nearly 30+ degrees that September day)! Some sweet workers on the farm also held some of the sprinklers for us so that we could get some shots in without being drenched.
Thank you again for being part of our journey. Everything is new and the experience can sometimes be overwhelming but we are thankful for it all. BIG THANK YOU to:
