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.
This stunning mama-to-be really wanted an outdoor session. Unfortunately our rainy Lower Mainland weather was not cooperating. After delaying a week to see if the weather was going to behave, we decided to do an indoor maternity session instead. It’s a good thing that we didn’t wait another week to see if the weather would turn for us, as S had the baby 4 days after our session! Talk about timing!
I think pregnancy suits her… such an awesome glow, and a gorgeous baby bump.
I don’t get twins in the studio very often, but when I do, I feel blessed. There is such a bond between twins, it’s truly amazing to see. It’s always more difficult when you add another tiny human into a photo session, but these two were superstars. If one was fussing a little, I would just add the other twin next to them, and it was an almost instant settling for both of them. I even managed to catch a moment of Mister M sucking on his sister’s nose for comfort.
I give kudos to parents of twins as well. I always said that I wanted twins. And then I had one baby. And I thought to myself, “How would I manage with TWO of them at the same time?” But twin parents just seem to have the knack for taking things in stride and making it work (and making it look easy while doing it.)
So, enjoy your precious little bundles… they won’t be so little forever.
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.
This little guy was so full of charm. He was such a happy guy for our session, and although I can find 2 month olds hard to predict, Mr. S was so laid back, and happy to do whatever we asked. Put him in a basket, yep, he was okay with that. Give him some tummy time… yep, still good!
I love capturing these moments, as in a baby’s first year they grow SO much.
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!
What can I say? Life happened. In the blink of an eye it went from being summer to starting a whole new year. Since my last blog post, school has started, the kids did skating lessons, it SNOWED in Vancouver, and stayed around for a long time (in face, as I write this mid January there is STILL snow on the ground.) We’ve had fun skating, tubing, sledding, snowshoeing, visiting family and friends over Christmas and getting back into the routine of things for January.
So, with getting back into the routine of things I need to blog quite a few sessions. I am aiming for one or two a week, so we’ll see how that goes! In the meantime, here are some snowy Coquitlam images from the past month…
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.
