A Sneak Peek from our Photo Shoot
I have been so excited to see and share photos from Saturday’s pregnancy, breastfeeding, and newborn shoot! (scroll all the way down to see them) It was truly an incredible day – we had the most gorgeous space in Leslieville, the sun shone through the windows (but DAMN was it cold outside), and the entire day was filled with a happy, sparkly vibe. And our models, come ON! They were fantastic. Every single one of them brought the most amazing energy to the photos and was so much fun to hang out with. Everyone was totally into whatever nuttiness we roped them into – get on a swing? Sure! Juggle clementines? Yep! Act out various emotions while staring at a laptop screen? Heck yes! We totally hit the jackpot with these models.
The amazing, creative, and easygoing Krista Fogel worked tirelessly, spending the entire day on her feet and with a very big pregnant belly and a smile on her face. She’s the best at making her photo subjects relaxed and happy and all the babies were totally gaga for her. I only wish we could have snuck her into a few shots – but then there would have been no one to take the pics, so…. Her photog (and also pregnant) buddy, Sara Desjardins, had great ideas and was indispensable at keeping us on track.
Thank you to everyone who entered. When we put the call out for models, we had no idea what we’d get and we were blown away by the incredible range of people who sent us their photos. Narrowing down from more than 70 entries was no easy feat and we so wish we could have brought everyone in. To show you how grateful we are, we sought out some prizes from our favourite local shops, classes, and services just for all our applicants. Make sure you enter for your chance to win one of these awesome prize packages.
Our Donors: Silly Goose Kids, SleepBelt, Attn2Detail Designs, Green At Home, Tenth Moon Mothercare, Lovenotes School of Music, Mommy Connections Midtown, Oaks n’ Acorns, and doula and fellow-mama, Jennifer Henderson who gifted a whole pile of Pampers!
Part of the proceeds of any sales that result from the day will be donated to the Red Door Shelter, helping homeless families and women and children fleeing violence.
We can’t wait to award these prizes to the winners!
Ok, enough with the words – enjoy a sneak peek at these gorgeous photos from our day!
