Karyn came out to see me at a gorgeous heritage home in the West Gate area of Winnipeg - owned, operated and shared with me by a generous friend and patron of my art. It is one of the first homes built in the city, hailing back to the 1880s. A local treasure, and an absolute delight to shoot in - especially the gorgeous women that are my subjects. Karyn has been practicing yoga for many years, and is an instructor when she isn't spearheading her own business, galavanting through the rugged terrain on various nature excursions and, perhaps most importantly, together with her husband, raising her sweet toddler as the wonderfully gentle and attached parent that she is.
I documented her birth a few weeks after this session, and will be sharing that birth story in the coming weeks, but for now, I'd like to share some of my favourite shots from her maternity session we shot in mid-March. Her beauty is so striking, so pure, so natural. Her healthy outlook and countenance so palpable. Her kind and peaceful soul so evident through the gaze of her deep eyes. It was very difficult for me to pick this selection. Enjoy!
