London Ontario Maternity Photographer | Brittany
I finally got this gorgeous woman behind my camera and boy was it magical!! Brittany is the talent behind Make-up By Brittany. I am just in awe of her work! I absolutely love her instagram feed! It’s full of goodness.
Brittany and Kennedy were such a great couple to work with! It was so easy! This post comes a little late since they already welcomed their little peanut Titus to the world but I am so thrilled I was able to document this stage in their lives!

|Gender of the baby:||Boy|
|Due Date:||Oct 22nd|
|Session Location and why you chose it:||Daria chose it and it couldn’t have been more perfect!|
|Weather Conditions on day of session:||Sunny with big clouds|
|How far along were you when you had your photo session? (weeks?)||I was 37 weeks!|
|How was your experience during your session?||We had so much fun! My husband is not super into getting his photos taken but he had a great time. Daria kept the mood light and kept us laughing all night! I was feeling very pregnant and Daria didn’t make me feel rushed or like I had to move fast, we went at my pace and I felt very relaxed.|
|What’s one piece of advice you would give to other expecting mothers for the session?||I might suggest booking in around the 32-34 week mark as opposed to 37 but then again I enjoyed how big my belly was! If you’ve got the stamina go for the big belly photos 😉 Also, bring a bottle of water and maybe some snacks for afterwards!|
|What outfits did you wear during our shoot, and why did you decide on those?||I wore a simple cotton dress that clung to my body showing off curves and belly, it was a dark orange red and went well with our fall theme! I also wore a beautiful fresh flower floral crown that picked up so nicely with Daria’s light capturing warmth and the changing leaves! I later changed into jeans and a mint green sweater for a more casual look. My husband wore the same outfit the whole time, a nice long fitted sweater and grey jeans.|
|What is something that dad has done for mom during the pregnancy?||He has basically catered to my every need. I can’t chalk it down to one thing. He brings me things in bed, goes out for late night cravings, makes meals, does house work and works! He helps me put my shoes on and even lifts me out of bed sometimes! Some of those more towards to end where I’ve felt less mobile. He has been the best partner, lover and best friend a girl could ask for.|
|What have been your favourite things to do while pregnant? Also, have you had any pregnancy cravings?||Hmm I’d say having baths. I’ve never had more baths then since becoming pregnant. During the summer months I really enjoyed floating in a pool or going to the beach. I’ve definetly felt cravings for ice cream more than ever, not a dessert I tend to go for normally, but I’ve been all about a good ice cream sundae! Oh and cheeseburgers.|
|Has your pregnancy gone pretty smoothly or has it been a tough one?||Wellll to be honest, pretty rough. My first trimester wasn’t so bad but I have been pretty sick on and off since the beginning of my second trimester. Nearing the middle of the third, I’ve had to deal with some pretty bad pelvic girdle pain and just general discomforts! It’s been a cool experience but not an easy one to say the least!|
|What kind of look were you going for in your photos?||Whimsical, warm, romantic, earthy, Mother Nature-esk!|
|Is there anything you were self-conscious about going into the session? If so, what?||Your basic things, not a huge fan of my arms or that pesky double chin that loves to show up in photos but with Daria’s reassurance and some help from my hair and makeup I felt like I princess the whole shoot!|
|Do you have a name picked out yet? What is it? How/why did you choose this name?||We do have a name picked out and we are SO in love with it! But it’s top secret until he is born 😉 not even our parents know yet!|
