Before the Baby – Coquitlam Maternity Photographer

I love it when previous clients refer new clients to me, and especially when they are expecting their first new bundle.  I must say, this ridiculously gorgeous mama-to-be looked great in everything she brought and it was easy to capture her wonderful smiles.  I can’t wait to meet the baby and capture some more great moments for this family. Enjoy your teasers…

Sisters – friends for life – Burnaby Family Photographer

Each fall I have the pleasure of photographing a daycare in North Vancouver for a Friends and Family night. Last fall the A family was there with daughter little Miss S, and the mom expecting another bundle in the summer. It was so great to get to catch up with them again at the photogenic Deer Lake Park in Burnaby and meet the newest little sister, Miss E.  Alexander2 Alexander3 Alexander4 Alexander5

Sweet Six months – Burnaby Baby Photographer

I love it when families opt for the Baby’s First Year package… it gives them a newborn session, six month session and a one year session, along with prints and digital files of each session, a gallery wrapped canvas and an album detailing the first year with their little one.   (and selfishly, it lets me experience the wonder of how many changes happens in that first year).

Little Miss A was just over six months at her shoot, and I think she must have just discovered her tongue.  It was so cute how she stuck it out for so many of the photos.   I enjoyed our shoot, and I can’t wait to see them again in the new year to wrap up her year.

And baby makes 4! Coquitlam Maternity Photography

I was excited to get an email from a previous client checking on my availability for a maternity shoot… she was 38 weeks pregnant and wanted to capture the special moments with this baby before it was born.  I shot her maternity and newborn session with her first daughter and let me tell you, these people make cute babies!

The weather has been so hot, but Allice and her family were up for a stroll through the forests along the river to capture the serenity of the area.

Isn’t she positively gorgeous?

I can’t wait to meet her next little one… will it be another daughter, or a son?  Only a week or two left before we find out!

Squishy Baby Happiness – Coquitlam Newborn Photographer

I was so excited to hear from past clients letting me know of the birth of their baby boy.  I was looking forward to seeing their older son, Mr.R, that I had the pleasure of photographing 2 years prior.  I would get to see how much he had grown, from a wee baby to a little boy, and get to meet the next family member.

Baby S was 3 weeks old when I photographed him, and he made me work for his shots…. I still think he’s pretty cute, though!

Gorgeous Family with a gorgeous backyard in gorgeous light – North Vancouver Family Photography

Do you think I enjoyed this shoot?  Do you think I think it was gorgeous?!?  Well, it was.  When Melody contacted me to shoot her extended family in her North Vancouver backyard I was a little nervous about shooting such a large group in a location I’d never seen.  One look at her backyard and my nerves were calmed.  A huge sectional couch was an amazing backdrop, plus cedar hedges along the edge, and the coolest rustic fence ever. (I’ve been told that I can have the fence when they renovate, and I just might take them up on the offer! It had so much great texture!)

Here are some of my favourites from the session:

Little Miss Character – Port Moody Family Photographer

In June, Colleen and Dean contacted me to do a family session for them, incorporating the wonderful outdoor areas in which we live and their 18 month old daughter.  For weeks we would book a session and then it would rain, so we would postpone. Finally we decided to try an indoor session on a rainy Saturday, but Little Miss S was not having any of my tricks in order to get her in the studio in front of the light.  After 45 minutes and minimal success we decided to try again outdoors.  This time the weather was AMAZING.  The early morning light was perfect to capture all of Miss S’s character. She kept us all moving, and laughing.  Colleen and Dean, enjoy your sneak peek!
