Brittany VanRuymbeke is a lifestyle wedding and family photographer servicing Southwestern Ontario. Scroll down to see Meg & Jake’s summer sunset maternity session on a family farm in Chatham-Kent, Ontario.
When we were planning Meg and Jake’s sunset maternity session I asked her “How do you feel about hanging out in a wheat field?” Her and Jake were totally down, and her grandparents who live on a beautiful farm in Port Lambton just happened to have wheat planted all around them this year. It was meant to be! Wed had the perfect summer evening where it wasn’t too hot and we weren’t chased away by mosquitoes the minute the clock struck 7.
You would never guess it, but Jake and Meg had never had professional pictures taken together. They were also recently engaged, so I made sure to include that part of their story as much as I could. We already knew each other going into the session and they were comfortable with me, but I reassured them it would be relaxed and fun.
We had some fun in the wheat field and around the farm and waited out the clouds for that glorious summer sunset we all spend our winters dreaming about. We ended up having a lot of laughs together and it went down as one of my favourite sessions from this year. Pregnancy isn’t always everyone’s favourite moment of life (thank you heart burn), but it is such a special time to document. Your life is on the brink of change, and your heart is full of gratitude and wonder.
Thank you Meg & Jake for hiring me to tell this tiny piece of your story. You are both wonderful parents to Scarlett and I can’t wait to work with you again one day (maybe for an elopement, Meg?!)
