Amy and Zhendan wanted to have their maternity photo session taken in Banff National Park. Their pregnancy session took place at breathtaking Lake Louise a few days after the heavy snowfall in the Rockies in October.

Lake Louse winter maternity portraits

We chose Lake Louise during the sunrise as the backdrop. Lake Louise is the most beautiful and our favourite location for pregnancy photography as for other portrait shoots. When we met with Amy and Zhendan in the morning by the Lake Louise, we were charmed by the beautiful sunrise. We were surrounded by snow-capped mountains and trees. The morning mist was rising on the unfrozen lake. The peaks of the mountains turned golden from the rising sun. 

Amy looked absolutely amazing. The style of the dress were perfect for her and the surrounding winter scenery.

Maternity photography

As a Banff maternity photographers we offer a mix of both natural interaction and more posed pregnancy photos. Each couple that we work with brings their own energy and laughter to their session. Our maternity session was pretty fun, we were changing poses fast to keep Amy and Zhendan moving.

What is best time to do maternity session?

It is good to schedule your maternity photo session in your seventh or eighth month of pregnancy. Your belly will have a nice round shape during this time frame, perfect for taking photographs. If you’re counting by weeks, schedule your session when you’re around 30 weeks pregnant. If you take maternity photos after your eighth month of pregnancy, your maternity might be uncomfortable. You want to avoid taking photos when your belly feels too heavy, usually after 35 weeks.
