Ottawa Photographer Samantha Danis Photography Maternity Winter Ottawa WeddingWhen this time of year rolls around, most wedding photographers have a lull in their schedule, myself included. Thankfully, I have beautiful friends and clients like Steph that like to get a lot of sessions done to commemorate all season of their lives. This session was something extra special for all parties involved. Steph has been my sisters friend for quite a few years now and she has been there for her through thick and thin. She has been so kind to our family and so giving to not just us but anyone and everyone she crosses. She has lived through heartbreak after heartbreak and her heart is honestly so big, the love just explodes from this girl. This pregnancy, although difficult, has been such a blessing for her and I am so so soooooo happy she asked me to capture it for her. A week before the maternity session we were discussing outfits when she told me the dress she had ordered hadn’t arrived in the mail yet. So I scrambled and ask my Ottawa friends if anyone had anything she could wear and the Lovely Samantha from Samantha Marie Photography offered up a few options. We ended up going with the forest green because I loved the deep colour and thought it would work well against a winter background. Steph’s friend had offered up their property for the session which was a huge field with an adjacent forest that we thought would be perfect for our surprise. When we got to our location day of, we realized pretty quickly the location probably wasn’t the best idea. The wind was insanely strong and it was crazy cold. We snuck into the forest to see if the wind calmed down, which it did, but the scene was no longer ideal and the wind was still too strong for our smoke bombs. So I quickly racked my brain to see where else we could go in Orleans and we settled on Princess Louise Falls. Luckily for us Steph works right across the street so we had parking and quick access. When we got to the falls I realized that the way down to the flat area had been worn down over time and was slippery and steep. I didn’t think it was a good idea for a very pregnant lady to make her way down a steep slippery hill in a long dress but she had something else in mind. Steph grabbed her tripod with her go pro, tied up her dress and climbed right on down like the true country girl she is. We were so happy with this location change because it was just so much more scenic then we had anticipated. We spent our time walking over rocks, climbing old ruined walls, sitting in the cold snow and watching me try not to die for the shot haha. After some gorgeous shots of Steph alone and of course of her and Dom we decided it was time to bring out the smoke bombs. We lined them up in a rainbow since this baby is Steph’s rainbow baby. So we set them up and Dom went at it lighting them! Sadly for us the green bomb failed, but luckily when yellow and blue mix, you get green! The red and orange picked up wind and eded up taking over a lot of the spaces, and then the wind shifted and blew everything the other way making the blue and purple more prominent. Although it didn’t turn out the way we had planned, I still think the photos are beautiful and hope they captured everything you ever wanted my beautiful Steph! We ended the session with Steph once again being crazy and climbing up these big ole rocks to go stand on the edge of the middle of the falls with Dom. Yes, he did help her thank god cause I think she would have done it either way haha. I am absolutely head over heels with this session and girl it was all for you. Thank you for being such an amazing person and soul ♥♥♥
