Mountain Maternity Session - Liubov - Airdrie and Calgary Maternity Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Mountain Maternity Session - Airdrie and Calgary Maternity Photographer

This mama wanted a warm weather and a sunny day for her mountain maternity session and we have waited and waited and I thought to myself that the baby will probably be born before the weather cooperates… but luckily we’ve just made it! We had this photoshoot on a Saturday and the baby girl was born the following Friday - almost a week after the photoshoot. This mountain maternity session was hot and sunny and full of love. This beautiful family is now complete with all the children being 7 1/2 years apart :-). The oldest sister has just turned 15 years old, her brother is 7 years old and now they have a brand new baby sister to love and spoil.

I love coming to Kananaskis Country for maternity photoshoots - I love seeing how the nature transforms each season. Last time I was in this location, the snow was still covering the ground and it was only a few months ago. It is amazing how fast the weather changes in Alberta, Canada. It could be cold and snowy one day and hot and sunny the next one. In fact they have a saying here: “If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes”

Rocky Mountains Maternity Photoshoot - Jennifer - Kananaskis Maternity Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

I absolutely love driving up to the beautiful Rocky Mountains for Maternity Photoshoots. We live in such a gorgeous province with a proximity to the most breathtakingly beautiful places on Earth such as Kananaskis Country , Banff and Canmore, Alberta Canada - it would be a shame not to use this opportunity and capture the Mom-to-be with the Mother Nature.

The Rocky Mountains, also known as the Rockies, are a major mountain range in western North America. The Rocky Mountains stretch more than 4,800 kilometres (3,000 mi) from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico. Kananaskis Country  is a park system situated to the west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the foothills and front ranges of the Canadian Rockies.

One of my most favourite spots to photograph all my gorgeous mamas is a place close to Canmore (Alberta, Canada) that features “The Three Sisters” mountains - a trio of peaks individually known as Big Sister (Faith), Middle Sister (Charity) and Little Sister (Hope).

This was an epic photoshoot as the weather was more than perfect - above 0C with some fresh snow, nice warm sun and no wind!!! I could not have wished for a better day to meet with my friend Jenn, Brett and Liam for Jenn’s Mountain Maternity session. Jenn is expecting two little girls - identical twins and since I have photographed her first pregnancy with Liam - it was super special to capture this pregnancy as well with Liam who is now 2 years old and can’t wait to be a BIG brother. He will be such an amazing big brother too - I just can’t wait to meet the twins and to capture their newborn session which will be featured here on my blog, stay tuned! Until then, enjoy this breathtaking session!

I wanted to do a maternity photoshoot in the mountains for a very long time. We are lucky to be living so close to the mountains, where the air is so crisp and pure, the view is breathtaking and you feel so connected to nature. Pregnancy is a very special moment in woman's life when your body is working on growing a little human being and you are full of anticipation and excitement to meet your new baby.  I believe that nature and the beauty of an expectant mother goes so well together. I was very lucky to have gorgeous Nataliya come with me to the beautiful Kananaskis country to model my new maternity gowns.  When I see Nataliya's pictures in the white dress, I think that this is probably how the "Mother Winter" would look like if she was a person - simply breathtaking!
