Vancouver Child Photographer - A Halloween Story

Today, I bring you a story filled with beauty, courage and a bit of devilish charm.

Once upon a time, there lived a happy, goodhearted pirate, who loved her life and the world around her.

She was famous for standing up to injustice and fighting hard for her beliefs.  She was never afraid to help those who were less fortunate.  Pirate Arrrtalie loved all the people around her, but most of all, she loved princess Belle, who was her best friend in the whole wide world.

Princess Belle was kind and gentle and cared very deeply for the people in her kingdom.  She was as polite as she was beautiful, and she always said please and thank you!  She was famous for anticipating people's wants and providing them with what they needed, be it hugs for the lonely, or a drink for the parched.  She was so lovely that the devilish and charming menace from a neighbouring kingdom decided to steal her away.

When pirate Arrrtalie heard the news, she got angry; VERY ANGRY!

"I will not let him get away with this!  No way!" she said.  "I will rescue the princess and teach Captain Yarrr a lesson he won't soon forget."

Pirate Arrrtalie caught up with Captain Yarrr as he was about to disappear with the princess forever.  She bravely fought the mean Captain until he had no choice but to release the princess.

Captain Yarrr tried hard to fight back, but he was simply no match for the strong and courageous young pirate.  When it became obvious that he was going to loose, he pleaded for his life.

Pirate Arrrtalie laughed.  She had no intention of killing the evil Captain.  She had a much better idea.

"Off with your hat!" she yelled.

"No, not my prized possession!" cried the Captain. "I'll give you anything else, but please let me keep my hat!" But pirate Arrrtalie had her mind set.

"Off with your hat!" she repeated, "and never bother people in this kingdom again!"

Captain Yarrr ran away and princess Belle was returned home safely where she could once again grace everyone around her with her beauty and kindness.

And pirate Arrrtalie enjoyed her newest treasure.  She was a pirate after all ;-)


I hope you enjoyed our family's little production.  Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Halloween!

Richmond Newborn Photographer - Cherished

I love it when I get a chance to photograph a brand new little one. This precious little girl was just 7 days old when her mommy and daddy came over for her portraits. She was so calm and so relaxed and absolutely perfect in every way!

And it certainly was no surprise that this little lady was totally gorgeous. Just look at her momma! She was positively glowing at her maternity session a few weeks ago.

I have to say, Vancouver sure has some stunning pregnant women and the sweetest little newborns. I'm sure lucky to be a photographer in this town :-)

Richmond Maternity Photographer - Ultimate Love

I love when my clients let their lifestyle and personality play a big part in their images! This couple LOVES to play ultimate Frisbee, so we had a little fun ;-) Lucky for us the rain held off long enough for us to enjoy the outdoors, before we came back in for a few more studio shots. I cannot wait to meet their little baby when he or she arrives in just a few short weeks.

Coquitlam Child Photographer - Beautiful Girls

Fall is in the air, and I've be super busy with family and child photo sessions the last few weeks, in addition to the usual newborn sessions. These gorgeous girls were so much fun to photograph :-) We played a bit in the studio and then headed out for some fun in the park.

Vancouver Newborn Photographer - Domo arigato

This little girl's auntie traveled all the way from Japan to meet her and newborn portraits were a gift to Miss B.'s parents.

It was such a lovely session and I really enjoyed chatting with auntie about photography in general. She happens to be a photographer in Japan and was curious how we do things here in Canada. Apparently newborn photography is not as big in Japan as it is here. After seeing how much time and patience goes into it, though, she said she'll have to think about it some more, lol. Truth be told, I am generally not a very patient person at all! It's the marvelous little beings that seem to put a calming spell on me. I guess that's why I just adore working with babies. They bring balance to my life; they're the yin to my yang :-)

Richmond Newborn Photographer - Calm and beautiful

Miss A. was a month old when she came to see me, but she slept like a newborn just barely a few days old. I think we finished in record time and got to do so many different set ups!

Her lashes, her smile, her gorgeous hair; I was smitten the moment I saw her :-) An the best part is, I will get to see her again in a few months for her 6 month portraits since she's one of my "Watch Me Grow" babies.

I know I say it way too often, but I absolutely LOVE what I do!

Vancouver Twin Photography - Room to stretch

After sharing a confined space for several months, these little two were happy to have some space to themselves. Whether she kicked him a few too many times, or he told too many knock-knock jokes, I don't know, but one thing was certain, they did not like to share the spotlight :-). Individually, they cooperated beautifully, but put them together and they were not having it. At 6 weeks old, sessions are challenging, with twins, mom had to work twice as hard at comforting them. That said, all the effort was worth it!

HO HO HO - Vancouver Christmas Mini Photo Sessions

Christmas may still be a couple of months away, but it will be here before you know it and it's time to start planning your holiday cards.

For the first time ever, Mamique Photography will be holding a day of mini sessions on October 29th this year. The sessions will be short and sweet (15-20 minutes) in the gorgeous fall colours mother nature has set up for us :-) Should mother nature decide to rain on our parade, the day will be moved to November 5th (and we'll do the photos in the studio should it rain that day, also).

The session fee of $200 will include the following:

15-20 minute outdoor shoot
5 fully retouched images to chose your prints from
1 8x10 print
set of 24 5x7 Christmas cards with envelopes

Additional card sets are $50 per set, and additional products/prints can be purchased at 10% off the a la carte pricing. Digital files are not included but can be purchased separately.

Reserve your spot by clicking on the button below. There is a very limited number of spots available and they are on a first come first serve basis.

I have a beautiful selection of Christmas card designs available in a variety of finishes. You will be able to see samples and select your favourite at the session.

What if you want Christmas cards, but would prefer to use an image from your past session? No worries! Cards are available at $100 for first set of 24, with additional sets at $50 each. And yes, envelopes are included! If you wish to see the various samples, just give me a call to set up an appointment. Please note, order deadline for Christmas cards is November 15th.

Vancouver Sibling Photography - Protected

I met this lovely family in August when they came for their maternity photos. Even before his tiny sister was born, it was obvious that this handsome young man was going to be the most loving and caring big brother a little girl could ever ask for!

Fast forward a few weeks, and he proudly showed off his baby sister and carefully posed for photos with her. They were such gorgeous and relaxed kids! Truly a dream to work with and such a pleasure for me to capture these precious moments for mom and dad :-)
