Maternity Photo Session Dresses for Montreal Moms | Pregnancy + Baby Photography by Carolina Hanna

Heeyyyy Pregnant Montreal Mamas!  This is for you!!!

My theme for 2017 has been How can I serve my clients even better?  Beyond creating images you will love, I wanted to make it simpler for you to have a maternity session you will be EXCITED for!!!!  Pregnancy is beautiful, but I know most of us don’t necessarily feel beautiful during pregnancy and who wants to go spend lots of money on clothes that you’re only going to wear for a few months, let alone spend money on clothes you’re gonna wear ONCE for a photos session?


So, as of now, when you book your maternity portrait and family session with me, you will have access to some beautiful, simple, timeless dresses!  I am so excited about offering this!!!!

And yes, you can totally use these for your newborn session too if you’d like to!

I currently have about a dozen dresses, and most of them should fit most sizes!  You’ll be able to select your favourites before your session and we can use as many or as few as you’d like!

Take a look at some of the dresses here and tell me what you think of these!  I can’t wait to get your feedback!  If this is a hit, I will be adding more dresses soon!

If you’re curious about booking a session, or how it works, I would really love to chat with you!  Get in touch today by clicking here, and let me know the best time to call you!

50+ ideas for your next family photos | MONTREAL FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Last time you tried to get your family photographed, at the mall studio, your littlest hurled THE.ENTIRE.TIME.

It was rough.

You are not doing THAT ever again.

I don’t blame you.  But your family portraits don’t need to be forced on your little ones.  Seriously! Your family portrait session should be about family time, going on adventures, and having FUN.

Yup.  It’s possible.

I am a family photographer who loves to photograph people in their home, however I know a lot of people would prefer to do something else, or wonder about what I would photograph for 90 minutes in their “boring” regular lives.  So, I have put together a list of 50+ ideas for your next portrait session.  Have more ideas?  Please leave a comment below and I will add them to the list!
