Val and Jesse planned to do a winter maternity session for their second pregnancy. We were a bit bummed because up until January Edmonton was not getting very much snow and they wanted a winter wonderland feeling. Fast forward to the day before their shoot and we woke up to three feet of snow and -30* temperatures before the windchill. I was worried that everyone was going to freeze but we shot Val and Jesse's winter wedding photos in the same freezing temperatures a few years ago and this couple is tough and determined! We shot photos and warmed up in the cars in intervals so everyone stayed as warm as possible, and then we headed to the Art of Cake to warm up with some hot tea and treats. The Art of Cake also did their wedding cake so the bakery was the perfect place to cozy and has special meaning to them, not to mention delicious cupcakes!
