My friends Jenn and Ian are expecting their first child in the very near future, so we met up for a maternity shoot when they were visiting from Ottawa. We wandered around Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood and took photos in the bright morning sun and very strong winds. It is always meaningful when I have the chance to photograph people at different milestones throughout their lives. Last summer, I documented their wedding in the mountains and have photographed them several times before when we were neighbours in Montreal. Each shoot is a wonderful new memory and a marker on the timeline of our friendship. Ian and Jenn, I am so excited for the arrival of your little one. I know you will be fantastic parents and build a beautiful life as a family.
