Often times being an Edmonton maternity photographer means that these sessions become family ones because of babes that the family already has, which was the case with the Fetter Family!
It was a beautiful, warm fall evening for Shoniece, Cam and their sweet daughter Naya’s session. They requested it be at the Edmonton Corn Maze, of which a part of me was skeptical going so late in the season, but the yellow stalks with the golden sun made for a gorgeous setting (great call!)
Now sometimes people ask me about outfit choices and colours for photos and so I’m going to take this post to share some of the things to consider.
When choosing outfits, you should be thinking about how the colours and patterns you’re wearing go together. Do they clash? Do they look too matchy matchy or are they complimentary to one another?
Usually deeper colours -burgundy, navy, mustard yellow, etc- are excellent colours, with neutral tones like browns, greys, blacks, working if that’s all you have. I’m not going to lie, google works great for helping with this. For instance, if you type in “burgundy colour palette”, it will give you a whole bunch of strips of colours that go well together. Just if you’re still at a loss!
In this case, the dresses that Shoniece wore mixed perfectly with her daughter’s dress as each one could be found on the pattern of it, and her straight colours against Naya and Cam’s patterns/neutrals worked great.
Now during this session this gorgeous mumma wanted to do some more natural photos, of which, let me tell you, if you ever want to get a little naked in a session with me, I am ALWAYS down. I love love love photographing people just being their human selves, and incredible pregnant mumma bodies is no exception.
I hope their love for one another makes you smile as much as it did for me.

p.s. if you’re on your mobile phone, turning it sideways is much better for these photos!
