You're pregnant and already have about one million things to do! While setting up the nursery may be high on the priority list, you don't have time to find a great printer, upload photos, pick out frames that match the room and create albums. That's why I do this for you, and you can order your gorgeous wall art or album straight from your online gallery. I'll even help you measure the space during our session so you know the perfect size to order!
That tiny little strip turned pink!🎉 Whether you've been trying for a month, for years on end, or this baby comes as a total surprise, this is such an exciting time! And now, you wait.
If you're impatient like I am, you'll likely wish time would speed up, until you finally hit the third trimester and think "I need to savour this!"
That's where I come in! As a Vancouver Maternity Photographer and mom of three, I help new parents preserve memories of this season of waiting and growing and preparing for baby because I know how beautiful, but short this season is. Motherhood can be a wild ride, and my lifestyle approach to maternity and newborn photography captures your experience as it is. I help you celebrate this new life in an unposed, relaxed way that captures the emotion and love in your family.
Sound amazing?! let's chat! >>
Timely and Informative Communication: I aim to give you all the information you'll ever need for our session to be relaxing and enjoyable result in gorgeous images.
An Experienced Guide: So many of my clients say "I'm awkward in front of the camera!" I'm here to gently guide and prompt you throughout the session to bring out natural and authentic emotions, so we can get those unposed images that are true to your life!
A Beautiful Baby Gift: I am so freaking excited to be part of your journey into parenthood, and I firmly believe you should never show up to a new parents home without a gift for baby and the parents! So, as a thank you, I'll show up with a fun surprise for you and baby!
Storybook Images that Capture your Family's Unique Relationship: This one explains itself. It's my aim to deliver you a collection of images that capture the beauty in your family.
Optional Virtual Photo Reveal and Ordering Session: If you prefer help in choosing and ordering your images and products, we can set up a virtual ordering session a week or so after our session to show you your finished images and help you choose frames or design albums. If you prefer to do this on your own, I'll send a digital proofing gallery for you to order from!
I so clearly remember the moment each of my sweet children were laid on my chest and I looked into their tiny face for the first time and thought I would explode with love, despite what they had just put me through. I also remember well waking up from a stupor of sleep-deprivation, night feeds and dirty diapers when my baby was about 5 months old and thinking... how did she get SO BIG?! That's why I help new parents preserve these early memories as a Vancouver Newborn Photographer.
My lifestyle approach to newborn photography means you get unposed, real images of your new family. I come to your home to do it, so you don't have to rush to get everyone dressed up and out of the house while you're one week post-partum. I capture your new life as it is: unposed, raw, real.
Yes I do! Traditional payments are 50% due at the time of booking (within a week) and 50% due 24 hours before your session date. But, if it's easier for you, I can split payments in three or four equal parts. Just let me know what you prefer, and we can make it work!
Newborns are tiny for such a short time that I HIGHLY recommend celebrating this sweet season with it's own session, right in your home. I come to you in the first three weeks of baby's little life, and we make some magic happen. Because I feel they're so important, I gift you 2 matted 8x10 prints from each session when you book your maternity and newborn sessions together. So, at the end, you have the perfect gallery wall for the nursery!
I absolutely do! In fact, I have a full blog post about what YOU can do to make sure your photos turn out perfectly (you can find it here). I also offer a small client closet of dresses that suit the lifestyle genre, which you can choose to use for any session. If you prefer to use your own clothes, I'm happy to provide styling tips and outfit suggestions prior to our session should you like them!
I do! Your photos are like personalized art. They aren't meant to be stored on a computer where no one looks at them, but to be displayed in your living room, made into an album for your coffee table, or put on a Christmas card to send to friends and family. Because I know how busy life gets, I offer custom packages based on how you want to display your images, or you can order additional prints and products online, straight from your gallery with the click of a button.
Travelling is my first love, and I'm thrilled to do it for your session! Whether it's the Island, the Okanagan, or even further afield, I want to be there to capture your day. However, for locations more than 2 hours outside Vancouver there will be a travel and lodging fee if applicable.
