Ultimate Maternity Session: Toronto_Oshawa_Maternity_Event_Photographer_Petra_King_Photography

So what if I told you that we held an event for expecting moms back in March that was “thee” Ultimate Maternity Session? What if I also told you that it was more than any of us imagined?

If you are a regular around here you will have remembered seeing my posts, hype and sneak peaks for this magical shoot. But then we kinda went dark about things… well there was a reason for that. I mean, after the buzz and sneaks via our Highlights on Instagram, the thank you’s to everyone involved both on and offline, business carries on. BUT…we knew it would take some time post production for everything to come together. The reason behind the wait is that we have been waiting for some footage to share with you as well as being published. If you are a photographer or work in editorial/media world, you will know that these things take time. To the general public most of us don’t understand how things work for publishing. Submitting your work to various companies is exciting and scary and can take a LONG time. I have always be one to let my work speak for itself, continuous learning and bettering oneself. My work, and passion for my business has never taken the “me first attitude…look what I did etc etc…” That’s just not who I am. On the other hand, I am well aware that you need to step up and own your business.. To share WHY you are different and what you offer and most importantly HOW you make people feel.

All that said… I am beyond thrilled to be able to finally share with you just what the heck transpired that day. LOL.. THANK YOU so much for your patience, for your messages and curiosity and congratulations!!! It’s been an amazing ride so far and I could NOT have made any of this possible if it was not for my amazing team and sponsors. More so my right hand girl, Lisa at Aspen Florist for being there from day one, right through till the last hour driving home. Thank you as well to Melanie for being there to assist too!

Our Ultimate Maternity Shoot was held down at Mint Room Studios in Toronto. Here is a little of what we got up to that day. Enjoy!

Sound ON….

A huge thank you to Kath Films for capturing everything for us that day. Event planning and organization is a lot of work. Deadlines, agenda’s, workflow, sequencing, technical, set up, tear down, transport, catering, audio, video, lighting, wardrobe changes, hair and makeup, floral arrangements, and a whole lot of muscle when you are a one woman show to set up on site lol! I am pretty sure I forgot a bunch of stuff in there too but you get the point. :) I’d do it all over again in heartbeat!

Here is a gallery snippet of some of the photographs we created that day!

Not all moms were able to share images online but we are happy to share these with you all….

Last but not least, I would like to send a HUGE thanks to all of our amazing sponsors and supporters who were not only generous with their products/services but with their time and platforms to help spread word for us.
