From Inside to Out – Maternity and Newborn Photographer

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!

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.

The Beginning of Something New – Coquitlam Burnaby Maternity Photographer

This warm spring weather has been amazing for late afternoon photography sessions and I had the pleasure of capturing the special time for my friend as she creates a new life.  I love shoot pregnant mamas, as the human body is truly amazing, and I find it so captivating to photograph those special moments before a baby is born.

The Coquitlam River and forest was a gorgeous backdrop for our session.  Please enjoy the teasers:

Sisters make the best friends – Coquitlam Newborn Photographer

It’s so awesome when client’s refer me to their friends, as I love all my clients and have such a great time photographing their families that it really means a lot to have them pass along their experiences.  This was the case with Shannon, who saw her friend Jessica’s photos that I did last month of her new little guy.

I am so glad that Shannon and Johnny brought their lovely girls to the studio for a session, as both girls are just cute as buttons.

Older sister R was a little shy at first, but soon enough she was comfortable enough to get in front of the camera and give me some smiles.  She sure does love her sister, and that bond is going to be so special throughout her whole life.

Here are some teasers.. enjoy!

Waiting on an October surprise – Coquitlam Maternity Photographer

I and A are so excited to be welcoming a little girl into the world sometime in the next few weeks.  If they are anywhere near as prepared for the birth as they were for our maternity shoot, this little girl’s entrance is going to be smooth sailing!  Mom-to-be had so many amazing outfits, and great ideas for our shoot… I especially loved the gum!

Enjoy your teasers, and I can’t wait to meet your little one….

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…

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.

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!
