Rebecca Clarke Emotive Photographer

Newborn baby boy

Being a surgeon is no joke. Long hours, time away from family, keeping up with education. It’s a lot. All of this, and also being a mom – takes a strong woman. J was so passionate about how it IS actually possible to do both, and you don’t really see images of surgeons with their babies. How could we not do an image like this one at F’s newborn photography session?

    Maternity photography dresses and bodysuits for photo shoots

    The final count down to baby can be a constant hurry to get everything done before things really change in your life. There’s all the “baby things” you need to buy, the work stuff you need to wind down, and possibly even a babymoon with your partner. I get it, you’re busy. It’s my job to make your maternity photography session easy-peasy so you have one less thing to worry about.

    Included with all of our maternity photography sessions is the use of our curated collection of gorgeous maternity gowns and bodysuits. I look for flowing fabrics, chiffon, lace, tulle, and items with lots of stretch. Everything flatters a range of sizes and complexions.

    Some of these haven’t made it to the Maternity Studio Closet gallery yet, or I’ve mixed and matched different pieces to make new sets. Here are a few of my favourites right now:

    Maternity photography photo shoot dress
    A simple lace off shoulder crop top paired with a tulle skirt and boy shorts.
    Extra long chiffon skirt and matching cross front crop top. Skin tone lining is removable. White fur trimmed cape for winter warmth!
    studio maternity photography session
    Black bodysuit with one shoulder ruffle.
    maternity photography bodysuit
    Mock-neck butterfly sleeve bodysuit in black.
    blue lace maternity gown for photo shoot
    Lined navy lace maternity gown and flower crown in rich red and blue tones.

      Baby boy newborn photos

      How sweet is this this baby boy? I knew he’d be the perfect little chunk after photographing his big sister a couple of years ago. He was feisty, but full of smiles, and it was fun catching up with these lovely people.

        Newborn session BTS

        Something new that we are playing around with is behind the scenes video clips during sessions. Baby L was very awake, but happy, and so so sweet. See what it’s like in the studio in this behind the scenes video.

          Halifax sunrise maternity session

          It was an early morning for Linoj and Anna, like getting up before the sun early. When we met at the Sir Sanford Flemming Dingle Park it was misty and damp. I was waiting with baited breath to see how the sun would greet us, if at all. It was one of those mornings where the sky just slowly gets lighter and grayer. We got very lucky with a 15 minute window of dark and dramatic clouds. It was like a beam of light came down from heaven and shone on these two for the first few minutes of their maternity photography session.

            Top 5 locations for family or maternity photos in Halifax

            As a Halifax photographer, I’ve had the chance to visit some truly beautiful locations around our province. Following is a list of my top 5 favourite locations in the HRM. There are many more hidden gems, but I keep coming back to these, time and time again when my clients don’t have a special spot in mind for their photo session.

            Peggy’s Cove

            Incredible wide open spaces beside the sea. Stick to the water, or venture among the fishing boats. This place is bursting with Atlantic Canadian flair.

            Point Pleasant Park

            Great if you are located downtown. It has a small sandy beach, some open grassy areas, as well as some forrest trails. It also has some old military fort walls. It’s a great all around location with easy parking.

            Cleveland Beach Provincial Park

            Located between Queensland and Ingramport. What’s not to love? A sandy beach, a lake, and warm sunsets lighting up the water.

            Oakfield Provincial Park

            Near Fall River, it has a lakefront beach, lovely large open grassy fields with foot paths, and trails through the woods.

            The Sir Sanford Fleming Dingle Park

            A paved walkway along the water, lots of trees and shade, a stone tower, and lots of benches make this spot a wonderful option near the Armdale Rotary.

            Runner up: The Frog Pond

            Also super close to The Dingle is the Frog Pond. Let’s call it our runner up! It features a hiking trail around a lake, that is stunning in the fall.
