Bump Photos with Charlotte Griffiths Photography

One evening a few weeks ago Jeff, Violet, my parents and I squeezed into our little car and made our way to Hirtle's beach. Have you been? The beach is tucked between Rose Bay (wouldn't Anne of Green Gables be tickled by that name?) and Kingsburg, just down the LaHave River from Bridgewater. Though the goal for the evening was a photo shoot, we made a night of it by stopping for supper on the way: mussels and pints all around (don't worry, Violet and I shared a pint...) The beach is a bit of a jaunt from Halifax, but it is one of our favourites and our lovely photographer, Charlotte Griffiths, just happens to live in the near by and equally lovely town of Lunenburg, so she was more than up for the trip.

I had mixed feelings about getting pregnancy photos taken, but we've worked with Charlotte on other occasions and we all love her and I totally trusted her to capture the beauty of my burgeoning belly. I'm so happy we went for it! Not only did we get some gorgeous shots of my belly, we got some pictures of Violet and Jeff and I that I would love, bump or no bump.

If you are looking for someone to take family photos I really can't speak highly enough about Charlotte. She is talented - the way she captures the light takes my breath away, but she is also the sweetest person with the ability to make parents feel at ease and kids feel like taking hundreds of photos is fun. I don't know how that is possible. Violet adores her and frankly, so do Jeff and I.

Check out her awesome work here (or below!):



{Nana and Papa even got in a picture - much to both of their chagrin!}


  1. Beautiful photos Em! I regret that I don't have ANY nice photos from my pregnancy - it wasn't something I wanted captured at the time, but now I think it would be nice to have that memory. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I felt the same way when I was pregnant with Vi -- I have precisely zero photos from that pregnancy. You'll have to wait for bump #2 for pictures (yes I am planning your family for you). Even though I was really hesitant to get these done I'm hoping I'll treasure them down the road. I will, right?!

  3. Grr, I have no clue what happened to my I will try again. They are beautiful photos!! You will be so glad you did this! I have very few photos of me while I was pregnant with my children, and wish I had done more. My daughter Robyn just had her first baby in February, and she took lots of baby bump photos, ( she loves photography) and they are amazing. I love to look at them now and it just makes me happy!
