It was December, and Theresia had her heart set on a snowy maternity session in the forest. When the day of their session arrived it just so happened to be the warmest December day possible. We had to trek through the mud to get to our locations, but let me tell you – it. was. worth. it. Not only are these two freakin’ models, but they’re so clearly in love which was apparent through their interactions with each other and the finished images. Oh, and the gorgeous sunset they had that day didn’t hurt either! It created a warm glow as they snuggled up, loved on each other and on Theresia’s growing baby bump.
Theresia & Ogie are the kind of people that you make instant friends with when you meet them. They came into our studio a few months ago to dream up their maternity and newborn sessions with us and we felt instantly connected with their kind nature and hilarious personalities. This connection carried over throughout our team’s entire experience with them. It’s our favourite when clients become friends and that is absolutely the case with these two.
Once their little girl arrived, they greeted me at the door as I arrived to photograph the newest addition to their family. Ariella snoozed away in her swing – the tiniest, sweetest little girl I’ve met in a long time. She is a miniature replica of her mom – with dainty features, the longest lashes, a button nose and beautiful curls. She barely made a peep as I photographed her nursery, her tiny frame in the big crib she had yet to sleep in, and snuggles with mom and dad.
Theresia & Ogie, thank you for trusting us to capture your growing family. These milestones are big ones, and we are honoured that you chose us. We’ve loved meeting you both (your hilarious emails are the highlights of our days ;) ) and can’t wait for future family sessions! Please stop by the studio with that beautiful darling girl soon.

“The experience my husband and I had with Manifesto Photography was nothing short of incredible. Kristle took our maternity and newborn photos and we were beyond happy with the photos we got back. She made sure that both experiences were amazing and you can see it through the photos she took. My husband and I loved working with her because she made us feel so comfortable, she was hilarious, and so very helpful. She loved on our daughter at her newborn shoot like she was her own and she was at attentive to all of our needs on both photo occasions. We cannot thank her enough. We are so grateful to the whole Manifesto team.”
