While having kids tends to add a new sweetness to life, it's also known to make to-do lists long, organization difficult, and priorities clear. You're a new mama, whether for the first or fifth time. You don't have time to find a great printer, upload photos, pick out frames 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!
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?!
As a Vancouver Lifestyle Newborn Photographer and mom of three, I help new parents preserve these early memories because I know how quickly they pass. 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 only to arrive and find baby has pooped through the onesie you picked. I capture your new life as it is: unposed, raw, real.
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 Understanding and Patient Photographer: As a mom of young ones myself, I understand how babies can be. You'll never be rushed in our session but I'll make room for you to soothe your baby and meet their needs during our session, without stressing about camera time.
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!

Yes I do! Traditional payments are my session fee due at the time of booking (within a week) and your package price 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!
Maternity sessions are so much fun and are such a great chance for us to get to know each other better and celebrate this beautiful season of waiting. I highly recommend them, and for that reason, I gift you with 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 your 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.
Babies are fragile, and I totally understand that you might be concerned about your child's safety. Because my style is unposed, I don't wrap or pose baby in any way that might be dangerous to them. In fact, during our sessions, I may give you a hand with a nice tight swaddle, but generally I touch baby as little as possible. I let you and your partner snuggle your little one, ask you to lay them on the bed or in the position I'm looking for. I also never enter a home if I'm unwell. Your little ones immune system is still developing, and it's better to delay our session than risk passing along a cold.
Back in May, The Provincial Health Officer gave the go ahead for photographers and other professionals to enter their clients homes. Of course, it's my first priority that you, your family, and particularly your baby, stay healthy. Because of this, all sessions are postponed if either you, someone in your family, I or someone in my family shows any signs of sickness. On top of this, I'm taking extra precautions to make sure you and your family are safe. I wash my hands upon entering all my clients homes; I wear a mask to all my in-home sessions; I wash all swaddles and newborn outfits in my clients closet prior to and after each new session should you choose to use these; I do not touch baby unless I absolutely must, but ask you or your partner to swaddle and place baby. If you still aren't sure you're comfortable with an in-home session during this pandemic, I do offer outdoor lifestyle newborn sessions as well!
