Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of photographing my first Lucina Centre maternity photography session. Jacqueline, who is also a practitioner at Lucina, was my guinea pig. She is a Reiki and reflexology practitioner. You can learn more about her business, Azure Holistic Modalities here.
My studio provided the perfect setting for a few intimate photographs. The south facing window provides gorgeous back lighting. Jacqueline wore my favourite lace maternity gown and looked absolutely incredible in it. During our session, she mentioned that she is a former dancer. I think you can see it in the way she posed; the images are all graceful and filled with soul.
I’ve posted an image that we took inside below. Let’s be honest though. The garden at Lucina Centre is the perfect place for maternity or family images, so those photos really were the star of the show.
We spent most of our time photographing outside. The grounds at the centre are absolutely stunning. If you haven’t been out there, I really recommend it. There’s an amazing water fountain and walkway. There’s also an outdoor fireplace with seating area, a gazebo and if you follow the pathway, there is a hidden sculpture.
I have to confess that I haven’t spent much time outside. I will definitely be spending a lot more of it now. There are so many little spots to take pictures, I can see having many more sessions here. There are a number of little benches in the front that we didn’t even try out.
Here are a few of my favorite photos of the day. If you’d like more information on booking a session at Lucina, click here.
