It’s so true when photographers say that their best referrals are not from huge marketing blitzes but from word of mouth. More and more, I’m finding that to be the case in my business as well and Nicole is no exception! She approached me at Jaclyn & Eric‘s wedding reception, quite pregnant and quite beautiful, and threw an idea out to me. She was expecting Diana, a girlfriend of hers and also very pregnant, to fly in from BC for a wedding in Toronto and wanted to surprise her with a maternity session. Oh the images that were flying around in my head!
When she told me which weekend it was… there was a momentary snag in the plans. Graham’s sister Charlotte was due to give birth around that weekend and there was a distinct possibility I would be heading up to the Soo for that weekend. Nicole was awesome enough to be on stand-by in case there was a delay in Char’s birth and in the end, everything worked out just fine! We never got the call for Char’s birth until later the following week (a healthy baby boy, in case you were wondering!) so it was a last minute call the day before our shoot date and Nicole, Diana and families were both totally up for it!
I had an amazing time with this session. It was Nicole, Diana, their loving husbands, a toddler each, both about the same age, and one big ol’ photo session! Incredibly enough, Nicole and Diana’s due dates are in the same month as well! It was so clear throughout the sesh that these two families meshed so well together and these two fantastic women shared a bond that was unmistakeably a friendship to last a lifetime.
Nicole, Diana: You and your families were a blast to photograph and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to shoot my first double maternity session! I sincerely wish you the best in your pregnancies and births and I’m so happy and thankful to have been a part of this amazing occasion. Much love and appreciation, Jenne.
The ever-lovely Nicole!
The beautiful Diana!
Love this image… look at the little feet sticking out!
These two are soooo cute together!
Two awesome, amazing families… one spectacular session!
