Happy Holidays | Year of 2017

As the holiday season is upon us, I find myself reflecting on the past year and those who have helped to shape my photography business. It’s been a wonderful year! I hope that 2017 has been just as memorable for you and your loved ones. I would like to express my sincerest appreciation for the trust all my clients have placed in me and I feel very honoured to have documented so many milestones and special moments for those families.

Here are some of the babies I photographed this year:

Vancouver BC Baby & Family Photographer | Armaan

What’s the best age for baby pictures?

The age of your baby can make a difference in what type of poses you are able to position them in and whether they will like it or not. All babies are different, and it’s not to say that one baby will be easier to pose over another based only on baby’s age, but generally speaking, the age of the baby can dictate how the session will run.

If you want to have your baby’s entire first year documented, I recommend the following milestones:

  • Fresh 48 Session: Held at the place of birth, within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever, including siblings meeting the baby, first bath, breastfeeding (optional), bonding with family, etc.
  • Newborn Session: The best time to schedule a newborn session is within 2 weeks after birth. At this time babies are more sleepy and curly and we can get most of the cute poses you see here on my website.
  • Tummy Time Session: For babies from three-months-old to five-months-old that are able to hold their head up.
  • Sitter Session: For babies that are able to sit up unassisted and crawl, but doesn’t yet walk, usually between six-months-old to ten-months-old.
  • Cake Smash / First Birthday Session: This is a great and exciting way to celebrate baby’s first year!

Baby Armaan was almost 6 months old when he came to my photography studio in Richmond BC for his photo session. Big brother and sister also enjoyed participating in the photo shoot and we had so much fun together!

Richmond BC Newborn Baby Twins Photo Shoot | Emily & Elizabeth

Is there anything better than a fresh newborn baby? yes, TWO fresh newborn babies! Emily and Elizabeth are fraternal twins and they were born to bring even more joy to their family. Mom and dad have now 3 beautiful girls to be proud of. I had so much fun creating those beautiful memories for them and I absolutely love their entire gallery. Emily and Elizabeth were dream babies and they did so well in their first photo session. I’m very happy to share my favourite newborn photos of these sweet baby girls!

Vancouver BC Women’s Hospital Fresh 48 Photography Session | Lara

I know it’s been a while since my last post here, but this is the busy season and what I’m doing all day is shooting, editing, editing and did I mention editing? haha!

Your little one changes so quickly in those first few days, so don’t miss this opportunity to capture those sweet details and introductions to the family. Between pain, exhaustion, visitors, and the constant stream of nurses and doctors, the first couple of days in the hospital are usually a blur, but they are also some of the most amazing moments with your new baby. You have waited 40 long weeks to meet your baby and once they are finally here, you want to soak up every amazing detail. Booking a Fresh 48 allows you to relax knowing that all of these details will be captured for you. From the way their ears are still folded all the way to their wrinkly toes, everything will be documented and preserved for a lifetime.

Save $100 when booking Fresh 48 + Newborn Session

This sweet family welcomed their baby girl Lara to the world a month earlier and I’m sure Lara was so excited to meet her parents that she couldn’t wait anymore.. haha! Those first hours of baby’s life is just so special, the connection between new parents and a fresh baby, this new feeling inside your heart and so much LOVE.

Contact me today and book you Fresh 48 session!

Vancouver BC Newborn Baby Photographer | Bellamy

It’s literally snowing outside and I’m still posting photos from last spring.. haha! I took advantage of the tulip season to use some of them during Bellamy’s newborn session. This sweet baby girl was 9 days fresh when I met her on her first photo shoot. Big brother Charlie was so proud of her and they are both SO adorable!!

Bellamy’s mom has this amazing youtube channel about mom’s life, maternity, beauty, etc. Check it out:
