Nicolette and Tyler’s Maternity Shoot by Chanel Bergsma


This was my first ever maternity shoot and so you can imagine how excited I was.  

I was privileged to photograph this lovely couple in the comfort of their beautiful home as this is where they would be most comfortable.

Nicolette and Tyler were very relaxed which made for photographs that truly reflected the essence of who they are.  

Natural light, moments of fun and detailed macro shots showing the details of the considered interiors are what made my first maternity shoot one to remember!

Donna, Craig, Calvin, Dylan & brand new Reece by Chanel Bergsma

This family has a special place in my heart - I have been friends with Donna since grade 1 and went to high school with Craig. These two high school sweethearts have created the most beautiful bustle of boys. They each have such playful personalities in their own right, but it was Reece who stole the show, after we let the older boys out to play and get dirty like boys do.

Barry, Ali and Olivia’s Family Shoot by Chanel Bergsma

I so enjoyed shooting this wonderful family of three, soon to be four!  We went to Summerveld to capture moments highlighted by the natural sunlight and surrounded by the magnificent trees. Olivia stole the show and the camera most certainly loves her!

Caroline, Johan with Sunni and Charlie. by Chanel Bergsma

It was a joy to do a shoot for my very special friend who was out from Sweden.  We took these pics at Caroline’s childhood home, and feelings of nostalgia ignited a sense of delight as we set out into the garden and had a ball!

We even got Johan to get his guitar out and they all sang as a family, sitting on the grass together.  

It was a precious moment, a moment that reminded me why I love what I do!
