This sweet couple contacted me in the summer to book their maternity session for September. They knew that they wanted an outdoor session, and Deer Lake Park was the perfect choice with the variety of backdrops within easy walking distance. We had a great time strolling down the paths, and along the boardwalk, and I could tell that this couple were made for each other. They always had smiles on their faces.
She is just so stunning.
And then, at the start of November, exactly on her due date, little Mister N decided to show up. Full of a dark head of hair, 10 fingers, 10 toes and the perfect little mouth, baby N was a dream to photograph. He slept the entire time, and saved all his pee for after the session.
What a cutie. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I had the pleasure of photographing little Miss A last week for her newborn session when she was just 9 days old. I honestly think I might have the best job in the world, because not much compares to snuggling adorable little babies, like Miss A, capturing their smallness, their uniqueness and then getting to hand them back to their parents. I love the little yawns, the little smiles, and all the love that I can see in the parents eyes when they bring their baby to me.
Please enjoy your teasers…
I won’t lie… I love newborn sessions best when they are done in the first two weeks after birth. This is when babies tend to sleep the most, and are the squishiest, and usually have great skin. Miss A came to my studio a little after the ideal time, but honestly, I would have never known. She slept all the way through the session — even with my different bowls, buckets and stool props. She was a dream, and I love the images that we captured of her newness.
Can’t forget some pictures with her parents…
Little Miss E took her time getting here… our newborn session was planned out for the week prior, and yet, still no baby. She may have taken her time coming into the world, but she has lost no time in capturing the hearts of those around her.
Miss E made me work to get her to sleep, but once she was off into dreamland I was able to get her into many different poses and props. I am sure that some of the set ups were surprise for her mom and dad as well, since they were also able to catch up on their zzzzz’s during the session. I love it when the parents feel comfortable enough to fall asleep during the session and catch up on some much needed rest.
Enjoy Miss E’s sneak peek!
This sweet little girl came into the world at the start of February. Her parents and older sister had been waiting for this day eagerly, and it was quite the celebration when she arrived. Since they have opted for the Baby’s First Year package, I am looking forward to watching this little girl grow over the year.
Our session was so smooth… she slept like a dream, and snuggled in with her big sister for some great poses.
Here are some images from our newborn session:
It’s only the 3rd week of January but I’ve already been busy with quite a few sessions. But this sweet little girl was my first newborn of 2017. She was due to be born on Christmas eve, but had other plans. Despite mom wanting to meet her in 2016, she decided to wait until 2017 to make her entrance.
After seeing mom and dad there is no doubt that these two make gorgeous babies. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I got the call just last Friday that a new little boy had come into the world and the parents were looking for someone to take his newborn shots. Luckily, I was able to meet with them on Tuesday, when Mr. T was just about 2 weeks old, which is the perfect time for sleepy newborns.
Mr.T was a perfect gentleman, letting me pose him while he spent the morning dreaming. We also headed out to the trails around my home.. there will be some interesting photos coming up on the blog next week! Stay tuned, and in the meantime here is a sneak peek… enjoy!
Mr. E was a superstar at our session. He slept, well, like a baby, and enjoyed all the snuggles from big brother throughout the photo shoot. All that dark hair and squishy rolls… don’t get me started on what a heart-breaker this little guy is going to be! Mom and dad, you’re going to have your hands full with your two adorable boys.
I bet I say it every time — I love the Baby’s First Year sessions. I get to watch these amazing little newborns, fresh on this earth, grow into a little person, with such character by the time they are one.
Little Mr. A came early into the world, not waiting for his momma to get her maternity shots done. I got to capture the newness of him, the smiles, the adorable features, so perfect.
6 months later, he came back into the studio… sitting up, sticking his tongue out at me every chance he got, and just enjoying the life. Already his spunky character was starting to show through, and we had a great time capturing his goofiness, and spunky nature.
Fast forward to his 1 year session… this little man has so many expressions, and just takes life as it comes. The range of emotions flash across his face as he takes in the birds in the sky, the dogs passing by, and all the love and cuddles from mom and dad.
We had a fabulous session at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver, and the weather was gorgeous. (it could have been a bit warmer, but really, for March — it was awesome.)
It has been a pleasure watching this little man grow, and I look forward to future years!
I was so excited when Ashley and Cory asked me to do their newborn photos. You see, I have photographed a couple of their cousins newborns, and family sessions, plus Cory’s sister’s wedding this past September. I think this family is amazing. They are all so sweet, and truly capture the essence of family life — love and laughter.
Little baby J is going to be so well loved, and I hope that these photos captured just a tiny bit of his super cuteness.
