West Vancouver Maternity photography at sunset with a sweet mama and dadda-to-be!

There’s nothing more exciting, terrifying and beautiful as becoming a parent. Especially for the first time. And there’s nothing I love more than capturing that season of joy, expectation and lots of transition for new parents. I still remember the journey into parenthood extremely well and remember counting down the days until I got to hold my first baby. This West Vancouver Maternity Photography session was a perfect way to commemorate this season of waiting for J and A.

J and A have been together for ten years and have been on all sorts of adventures together, but in July they’re in for a whole new one as they welcome their first baby girl.

Maternity session for first time parents at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver

Much like parenthood, this West Vancouver maternity photography session didn’t quite go as we had meticulously planned. When A and I were chatting through session details, she mentioned she was hoping for some beach and city views in Vancouver. Of course being aware that we’ve all been stuck in our homes for three months, we though an 8pm session would both give us a great sunset and also mean some of the crowds would have dispersed. We decided on Third Beach in Stanley Park, but of course, it never occurred to me that we wouldn’t be able to access it due to COVID regulations. It wasn’t until I had driven past the blocked entrance that I received a call from A saying they couldn’t enter the park from the Vancouver side. So, in a scramble, we decided to cross the bridge and head into West Van to Ambleside Park to still try for the city and beach views she was wanting!

I’m happy to say, we did in fact get both, as well as a gorgeous view of the Lion’s Gate Bridge. Though the park was much busier than we had hoped for, we were able to skirt around most of the beach-goers and take in the sunset as J and A walked along the beach and I made them rate their awkwardness on a scale of 1 to 10! I’m happy to say it only reached around a 4 despite all the people on the beach watching us.
