Our Maternity Shoot

I was really on the fence about doing a maternity shoot but after doing it I am so glad we decided to go for it. We contacted our amazing wedding photographer Phyllis Schiavone (Family PhotoJournalist) and met her in a beautiful park in Hamilton. She took a TON of beautiful shots and here are a few of our favorites.
