Lorene & Justin | Abbotsford Maternity Photographer

I absolutely love this couple and this shoot. Justin and Lorene are two incredible people with hearts of gold. Justin is a Chilliwack graphic designer and photographer and his wife, Lorene, is a journalist. Together, using their gifts they have created a wonderful project called Pockets of Change. They are currently putting together a book with photos and stories of life change from their travels across the world in Haiti and Mexico, across to the Ukraine and Africa.

Now, back to our shoot.. it is actually my first maternity shoot! I adore couples shoots and a maternity shoot, is just extra special. We were so delighted to get a sunny afternoon in between all the rain. A good thing we did too, because just six days later, their son, Isaac was born early!! :)

Lorene’s ’73 beetle made an awesome prop! Couples Photography AbbotsfordA beautiful mom-to-be and now mom! :)I love these next spontaneous ones – so cute!Oh how I love shooting in fields…Now this above photo is one of my favourites. What a sweet moment and light.At the time of the shoot, we didn’t know if it was yet a boy or girl, so we took photos with the girl & boy shoes. But it’s a boy, so here’s the boy shoes shot! :)My faves :)Congratulations Lorene & Justin. So happy for you both! :)

Great photos. lots of love in them :) :)

These photos are incredible! The light is just amazing. What fantastic captures. I especially love the second photo… er third photo? (The black and white one with the Beetle.) It just looks so timeless and classic, like it could’ve been taken in ’73. The composition, lighting and black and white treatment are all just spot-on perfect! Love it!

We are so happy with the photos Alyssa, thank you so much. And thanks for putting so much effort in to finding the right location – it couldn’t have been more perfect.


Awesome shots Alyssa! I love maternity shots. Mommies are the BEST to photograph because they are so happy and glowing.
I absolutely love the one of them inside the beetle <3


Super awesome photos, as usual!!
