Melanie’s sister, Michele, contacted me via email regarding a maternity/newborn gift certificate for her sister. She told that her sister was expecting twin girls, I replied that I was also a twin, she then responded that she and Melanie are also twins! Too funny!
In late October I got together with Melanie and her husband, Jason, for the maternity shoot.
(Equipment Used: All photos were shot with my beloved Canon 85 f1.2L lens, unless otherwise noted.)
We started in the house, and captured this photo in the babies room (shot with the Canon 24–70 mm f2.8L lens):
We then moved outside for some shots:
Melanie & Jason live on the Danforth, so we walked over to a lookout which shows the downtown in the background (that’s the CN Tower at the edge of the photo):
We then went back to the house for a few more photos:
I pulled out my Lensbaby lens for a few shots, and this is one of my favourites:
Then we went out to the Danforth to finish off the shoot. I love capturing couples in their local spots, in their ‘hood, to celebrate the couple, their connection and their love. The next three are from a series I shot at their local coffee shop, as they sat at the window. I simply adore this series:
We wandered further along the Danforth, and I captured Melanie in this cool chair on the sidewalk:
At another stop along the Danforth:
Last photos of the shoot were in front of a local flower shop, love everything about this one, Melanie’s laughter and even the pigeon crossing in front of them, lol:
Thank you Melanie and Jason, and I’m looking forward to meeting your daughters soon!
