Vancouver Portrait Photographer - Mother's Day Special

Not sure what to get your wife for Mother's day? I might have something she'll LOVE!

Sure, us mothers ADORE the darling hand made things from our children. And a day at the spa, or a fancy piece of jewellery is always appreciated ;-) But the reality is, that what most of us are missing are photos of us WITH our children. Most moms I know are the ones behind the lens capturing every precious moment of their darlings' lives. They fuss and they prim making sure everyone looks perfect, but so often forget to pass the camera to someone else so that they can be in some photos, too. I have countless photos of my family having a great time. I just wonder if my kids will actually remember that I was there, too, lol. So for this Mother's Day, Mamique Photography is having a special just for moms. Details below.

Vancouver Newborn Photographer - Happy Easter

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I am excited to have the weekend off, but before my break starts I wanted to share just a super quick sneak peek from today's session.

Little man made me work hard! At one point, I was certain we wouldn't get any sleepy shots, but he did surprise me in the end, and I even managed to get this shot :-)

Lots of babies coming next week, so keep your eyes out for some more cuties!

Vancouver Baby Photographer - One Year Later

Whenever my tiny clients come back all "grown up" I am reminded of just how incredibly quickly time files. Miss S. had the most adorable chubby cheeks when she came to see me at just 6 days old

And look at her now! Pretty little ballerina :-)

Vancouver Newborn Photographer - Sweet Baby Boy

I couldn't get over what a grunter this little guy was. Yet for all the complaining he did, he posed perfectly for each shot. I guess he just really didn't like being disturbed. I'm also sensing he likes to call the shots, since he was in a big rush to see the world by coming several weeks early. He was surprisingly big for such a preemie, but still delightfully curly :-) It was such a pleasure meeting you guys! Enjoy your beautiful baby boy.

Vancouver Child Photographer - Handsome

I had the pleasure of meeting a very handsome young man today. Not even two years old and already so polite and well behaved. It was a welcomed change of pace from my usual sessions, and as always, I loved going outside for some variety :-)

Surrey Newborn Photographer - Snuggle Bug

This gorgeous little boy came to see me last week and was happy enough to let me play. We got to spend a lovely afternoon together. I can't wait to see him again in the Fall!

North Vancouver Pregnancy Photographer - Adored

Well, it's definitely boy season! This little guy is loved so much already by his whole family and especially mommy and daddy. He still has a few weeks to go, but I can't wait to meet him soon. By the looks of it, he's going to be gorgeous ;-)

Burnaby Maternity Photographer - Radiant

This stunning momma came to my studio a couple of weeks ago. The pressure was on, because she's good friends with a photographer friend of mine, Kristie Larsen who lives in Smithers, BC. I hope I did her justice, Kristie :-)

I can't wait to meet their baby boy. We have so many fun ideas for his shoot!

Vancouver Portrait Photographer - Clothing tips

"What should we wear?" is a question that gets asked frequently by my clients. And rightfully so. Clothes are an important part of the final product. They can either enhance your portrait or steal the show, or worse, they can make it look like a snapshot. Here is a quick comparison:

Sure, my daughter is cute, but admit it, you're trying to figure out what exactly is on her shirt, right? Now look at this handsome little man. His stare is captivating and I bet you didn't notice much else.

Here is a list of questions to ask about each clothing item you're considering:
  • Is it faded?
  • Has it lost its shape?
  • Is it pilling?
  • Is it wrinkled?
  • Does is have distracting patterns or wording?
  • Does it look old?
If you answered yes to any of them, don't bring it! You don't have to buy brand new outfits for your session, but one or two new pieces added to your best clothes can really pull things together and make you and your family look like a million bucks.


Now let's move onto the daunting task of coordinating your outfits. Let's face it, is a tough job. There is a reason why the industry of stylists, personal shoppers and shows about what not to wear is booming. The thing I see most often is clients giving up and everyone ends up wearing either white dress shirts or black t-shirts. There is nothing wrong with that, but here is how we can make it better.

If you want to go with the white dress shirt concept, why not have another person wear a cream sweater, and someone else a pastel coloured shirt. How about some ruffle or lace trim on a tanktop layered with a light coloured cardigan? By adding different textures and keeping the colours in white, cream and light pastels, you'll add dimension to your portraits and avoid having everyone blend into a big white blob :-)

Same idea with black. Try a dark grey t-shirt or sweater. Or perhaps navy or chocolate brown. Keeping all the colours darker will unify the clothing, yet give each person their idividual look.

Below is a clothing sample in my personal favourite colour pallete of mauve, brown and creme to give you an idea of a more stylized look. It's important to have each person coordinate with every one else, eg. dad with son, siblings together, mom and daughter, etc.

I hope you found this informative, and as always, I would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you put together your outfits when you come to your session :-)
