Finir l’annee en toute beaute…

So came November 2010… I met a person who wanted to take the time to fix moments of her pregnancy onto a photographic paper…

I got an e-mail several weeks ago asking if I was available for a pregnancy photo session before she was too close from the due date. I happened to travel then, and I had to push out the session. I got to meet the mother (third time mother by now) an evening and I think it is safe to say we understood each other pretty quickly. She saw my previous work on my web and while we were going through my previous photographs together, I immediately realized I would do the thing I love the most in photography: work with a person who is genuinely interested in the art of photography and in herself. Indeed, I believe the time was right in her life to be proud of her soul and her body, to a point where she would be ready to look at her photographs and agree with herself she was simply beautiful. It takes some guts and a lot of wisdom to reach that point :-) .

We decided we would create pregnancy photographs with a twist of glamour, or “Charme”, I should say. Where I am from,”Charme” is not Glamour or Boudoir. “Charme Photography” is intimate but not too revealing. “Charme Photography” is appealing but never over the border. “Charme Photography” is soft and tender, much more Aubade than Victoria Secret.

The morning of the photo session was her morning. Her husband was kind enough to take care of the kids, and we worked just the two of us for about 4 hours. We had breaks, fun. We talked, we worked. I marveled at some of the photographs I was capturing, but I would not let her look at them :-) . Well, a great moment in my life. I was blessed enough that this person allowed me in her private universe. Thank you, deeply.

Bottom line, these types of session are like a spa experience for a woman: It is all about her, that day. Me, I’m just a witness of what she’s willing to give me. And all the rest is pure literature…

Before to conclude, let me wish you a happy and healthy year 2011 and many other good years!

So without further due, here are the photographs she kindly allowed me to share with you. Thank you.
