I’m so excited to share baby Silas newborn photos here! I had an awesome time with this lovely family and I love all images of them that I was able to capture. It’s amazing to create such beautiful memories for families and know that they will cherish these images for generations. I can imagine how magical must be when these kids grow up and share these moments with their own children.

Silas was 7 days new when he came to my studio in Richmond for his newborn photo session. Sweet big sister Miriam was a little bit shy and serious at the beginning, but soon she got more comfortable an did an amazing job! This session was definitely a lot of fun!!

With love,

Can you guess how old sweet Zoe was at her newborn session? She had to stay a little bit longer than expected at the hospital and she was definitely the oldest newborn that I’ve ever photographed. I set mom’s expectations about poses and told her that we might get only awake and wrapped shots. Little Zoe surprised us and did an amazing job on her first photoshoot! I was very impressed how curly and sleepy she was during the time she was at my studio. I’m so happy (and proud) with her gallery and very excited to share it here! Oh, and if you are curious, she was 8 weeks old 🙂

With love,

Clara is perfection! I’m so happy that I had a last minute opening and I was able to capture Clara’s first moments. She was only 6 days old when I met her and I’m totally in love with her! I love her hair, her blonde lashes, her lips and little fingers.

If your baby is already born, don’t hesitate to contact me! I might have a last minute opening and I would love to create beautiful memories for your family, just like the ones you see here, on my website 🙂

In many eastern countries it is common to celebrate when babies turn 100 days old. The reason varies from country to country and it can range from celebrating the end of the fourth trimester or that baby survived his/her first 100 days.

Megan is 100 days old and SO adorable! She really enjoyed the tummy time pose and she loves to make eye contact. Megan slept for a few minutes during her baby photo session and I was able to capture her little toes and chubby cheeks.

It is very important to celebrate this special date with a professional photographer specialised in baby photography. These memories will last forever and there is no best feeling than showing to Megan a few years later how she enjoyed this photo session.

With love,

April is definitely a special month for me and my career.

April of 2013 I attended to my first Newborn Photography Workshop and decide that I would like to do this for the rest of my days.
April of 2014 I opened my dream studio in my hometown (Florianopolis – Brazil). I was so happy and I thought I would work in that studio for so many years! Funny how life changes everything..
April of 2015 I attend to my first international Newborn Photography Workshop with 2 of my favourites newborn photographers in the entire world!
April of 2016 I built my second studio and restarted my business in Canada.

I can’t wait to see what life reserved for me this year… lol

I’m so happy to finally share Bennett’s gallery here! He was 11 days of perfection!

How to choose a newborn photographer?

Expecting a baby is truly the most exciting time of your life and you definitely want to capture the first moments of your little one’s life. With so many options out there, you must be wondering how you should choose a newborn photographer.

1. Style. Go through their portfolio, ask to see an entire gallery of a newborn session. Make sure you love the photographer’s style, colours, accessories, props, etc. Hiring a photographer is a very personal experience, so choose for images that speak to you. This is such a unique moment and it won’t be possible to create these memories again, so take some time to search and search, until you find someone that you absolutely LOVE.

2. References. Ask for references and testimonials about the photographer. Look for reviews at google or at photographer’s website. Newborn sessions last 2-4 hours, so having a great experience is equally import as having perfect poses and images.

3. Experience. Ask how long they have been in business. Did they attend to newborn photography workshops/classes? They will be handling the most important person of your life, and safety must be always photographer’s number one priority. An experienced newborn photographer knows all the secrets about posing, lighting, soothing and of course, he/she must be very patient.

These memories will be in your family for years to come. Your family will enjoy them together when your children get older and even when expecting their own baby. Choose a professional newborn photographer that will provide you with an amazing experience and stunning images.

Sweet Renee was 10 days fresh when I met her and she was my first newborn of 2017. I love all of her little features! I was so happy to have the opportunity to create those beautiful memories for her family.

“I brought my baby in for a session when she was 10 days old! Amanda did an amazing job! She was super friendly, and professional at the same time. The photo came out so great that I couldn’t resist buying more selection! Would definitely recommend to everyone, and looking to have my photo done at other milestones as well.” – Mandy L. {Renee’s mom}.

Sweet Fateh, 28 days new and cute as can be. I was so impressed that he was making eye contact already, and at the beginning of the session he didn’t want to miss anything. I’m so glad that we got those sleepy poses with him, even that he was a little bit older. Fateh did an amazing job on his first photography session and I had a great time with him and his family 🙂

Best Time to Book a Newborn Photo Session

I know that once baby is born you will have a lot on your mind, and choosing a newborn photographer might not be the first thing on your list. That’s why it’s best to book your little one’s photo session a couple months before your due date. After completing the online agreement and a deposit, I will add your estimate due date on my calendar, and once baby arrives we schedule the newborn session within 2 weeks. Newborn photography session should be booked ideally within the first 5-10 days of life, at this age babies are more sleepy and curly. But I’m always happy to work with older newborns, so if your baby is already born, don’t hesitate to contact me, I might have a last minute opening and I’d love to work with your family!

With love,

I’m so happy to see that baby Yilin is getting cuter and cute everyday! She was such a perfect baby on her newborn session and it couldn’t be any different at her 100 days milestone photo session, she is SO adorable! She loves to smile and I love to capture that!

Babies at this age can wave their arms and kick their legs. They are responding even more and even give you smiles! Babies change so much in so short time and it’s so important to capture each and every milestone of them! I would love to meet your family and create beautiful memories of these moments, just like I did for Yilin’s family.

I offer ‘Tummy Time Session’ for babies from 3-5 months of age that are able to hold their head up. You can find more information about this kind of session at our Info & Pricing page under the “BABY SESSION” section.

With love,
