A golden hour maternity session at Pipers Lagoon
I’m so excited to share Emma and Graeme’s maternity session at Pipers Lagoon in Nanaimo. Pipers Lagoon is one of my favourite local spots! It’s such a gem in the middle of the city and there are so many beautiful wild corners throughout the park. With arbutus trees everywhere, it screams Vancouver Island. Not to mention, the lighting in the evening is stunning.
It’s an extra special place for E + G too. Emma spent a lot of time here growing up, and they had their engagement photos taken in the same place a year earlier. They want to continue the tradition next year – with their little one! I love the idea of being able to look back on different years of your life (and some of your biggest milestones), all with the same backdrop.
A few more weeks as a party of 4!
Emma and Graeme brought their two adorable pugs – Winston and Wilbur – along for a few shots as well. After all, they were the first babies in the family! Winston and Wilbur joined us at the beginning of the session for a couple of photos, and then they got to relax for the rest of the shoot (being the world’s cutest models is hard work). This is always an option if you want to include your dog(s) in your photos, but you think they might be a bit of a handful for the entire shoot.
