North Vancouver Baby Photographer - Seriously Beautiful

As excited as I was to see Miss A. again, the day was also a bit bittersweet. She's one of my "Watch Me Grow" package graduates and the year flew by oh so quickly! The tiny 4 week old girl I met last year turned into a beautiful young lady with the most captivating blue eyes! We had a blast though. This little girl is full of energy and as soon as she got comfortable with the surroundings, she was on the move, keeping me on my toes the whole time ;-)

Vancouver Newborn Photography - Baby Boy

Mr. S. was a pretty relaxed little dude which made for a really smooth session. He sure made things easy for me! And isn't he just the most precious sight? I could have snuggled him all day :-)

Surrey Child Photographer - Beautiful Girls

Back in September I had the pleasure of photographing a family with their two beautiful girls, and I was thrilled when the mom's sister contacted me a couple of months later to capture images of her gorgeous family. Like their cousins, these two girls were absolute joy to work with. Big sis was a pro at making her baby sister giggle.

Vancouver Photographer - Intrigue

Ahhh, Valentine's Day! The day to slow down, relax and focus on a softer, more intimate part of your life. Being a mom is not easy (neither is being a dad!) and many couples get lost in the day to day duties of being a parent, forgetting to take the time to just talk to each other. You know, the way you used to talk before you started worrying about the shopping list, who's turn it is to do the dishes, or which preschool will give your baby the best chance to get ahead in school.

Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to remind yourselves that you're not just parents. I challenge you to turn off your computer this evening. Forget about checking your phone, or what's on TV. Don't talk about your kids, or work, or chores. Just talk about you, what you like about each other, what things you like to do together, perhaps share a secret ;-)

I believe a little bit of time together, really communicating, means a lot more than a trinket or flowers. Don't forget the power of a compliment. Believe it or not, men often feel insecure about how they look too, so Ladies, tell your men how dashing they look. And when your husband tells you that you're beautiful, believe him! You may not notice it, but he sees all the intriguing things about you :-) The shape of your lips, the dimples when you smile, the way your hair falls on your neck; all the little details that make you the beautiful woman he fell in love with. And if you just can't see it, let me show you!

So many women get absorbed with being a mother, that they forget about themselves. I think that's the main reason women have a hard time believing when they're told they're beautiful. They don't believe the sensual, alluring woman she was before her babies arrived is still part of who she is.

Inspired by my gorgeous clients, I am happy to introduce the INTRIGUE session. A short and sweet session to showcase your natural beauty. This is available for a limited time only, so if you're interested, please contact me for more details.

I hope you have a fabulous Valentine's day and that you take me up on my challenge ;-)

Vancouver Pregnancy Photography - Radiant

I am so excited to meet their little boy! Momma was positively glowing with excitement and I just know he's going to be surrounded by love the moment he arrives. You could tell "big sister" knew she will have to share the spotlight when baby brother gets here, though I don't doubt the transition will go very smoothly :-)

Surrey Newborn Photographer - Sweet Cheeks

I love babies of all shapes and sizes. I adore tiny newborns with perfectly detailed features and ones with lean long limbs. I love round bellies and wrinkles on their backs. I love bald babies as well as ones with a head full of hair. And I think babies covered in peach fuzz are just the sweetest sight ever, but my real weakness is for squishy chubby cheeks. I'm quite certain I squealed when I laid my eyes on this little girl! I couldn't wait to get started and I was so happy that she was super laid back, too. I couldn't have asked for a better session!

Vancouver Baby Photography - Big Winner

I'm so excited to share last year's big contest winner. Mr. S. has grown up to be such a handsome young man! And what a happy little guy! He did not enjoy his newborn session much, but for his one year photos, he was full of smiles and giggles.

Vancouver Newborn Photographer - Models

As most of you know, Vancouver can get pretty dark and dreary during the winter months. I love the look of soft natural light, and have invested heavily into equipment that will allow me to capture beautiful images, even in low lighting conditions, but there are days where it's so dark that natural light alone is just not enough.

So back in December I had the pleasure of photographing three adorable newborns whose parents were kind enough to bring them by my studio while a photographer friend of mine and I tried out different lighting set ups to create lighting similar to my naturally lit images.

I'm pleased to say that we were very happy with our results and given how rainy January has been, the new techniques have come in very handy!

The awesome thing about shooting with another photographer is being able to work together on some of the more challenging poses. Leslie is a talented photographer from Williams Lake, BC, and it felt like she could read my mind ;-) So much easier with an extra pair of hands!

The babies were absolutely gorgeous and very cooperative only adding to the already fantastic day :-)

Loved all of his hair!

This little girl was so relaxed the whole time she was here.

This feisty little girl was unconvinced that sleep was truly the best idea, but with some rocking and cuddling she eventually gave it a try :-)

Vancouver Maternity Photographer - Introducing Mini Maternity Sessions

A baby is the ultimate expression of love! Not just the love parents feel for each other, but most importantly the love they share for the innocent life they're privileged to bring into this world.

February is the month of love with cupids, hearts and chocolate kisses reminding you to celebrate the feelings of romance and infatuation. As many expectant mothers will know (particularly those enduring morning sickness), romance is not exactly a high priority, but the feelings of infatuation are truly magical.

From sharing the news after getting the positive test result, to hearing the heart beat for the first time, to feeling the gentle flutters as your tiny miracle makes his presence known, pregnancy is by far the most monumental time in a woman's life. A time, I feel, deserves to be documented.

I cherish my own maternity images. They remind me of my own feelings, hopes and expectations I had at those times. That's the beauty of photographs. Just like a song, or a scent, an image takes you back in time to the memories you have of a particular event, person or place. Long after you fit into your skinny jeans again (or like me, you've given up trying); long after the first separation anxiety; and long after first steps, words, and toothfairy visits, images of your beautiful belly will transport you back to where it all begun. You'll be reminded of the tiny kicks and hickups, the prenatal classes, the sleepless nights filled with anxiety and expectations. Memories of who you were while your child grew safely within you.

I am happy to introduce the "Mini Maternity Session" add-on to your newborn session. Quite often I get inquiries about "just a few" belly shots, from clients who are shy or private, but who truly wish to have a handful of keepsake images to remember their pregnancy by. This option is also perfect for women who have done a full session for their first baby, and would love to add to their memories with their second or subsequent child.

The Mini Maternity Session costs $100 and lasts 20-30 minutes. The 5-7 images from this session will be shown together with your newborn photos.
