One of the most important decisions you have to make during pregnancy is to find a perfect name for your newborn baby. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in December and we spent hours talking about names and discussing all the options. Although we live in Canada, we were searching for a name that fit both English and Portuguese (since we are from Brazil and our whole family live there) and that didn’t give us many options. We had a list with baby names in our fridge and every day we look at it and day by day we were scratching one or two names from the list. After we found out baby’s gender (it’s a boy!) our job got a little bit easier and we finally decide to name our baby LUCAS!
Here are the top 20 Canada’s most popular baby names in 2017:
Working with newborn babies, I see different names every day, from all different parts of the globe with different and special meaning.
This lovely family named her little girl Isabella, meaning “devoted to God”. Isabella was 7 days old at her newborn session in Vancouver BC. She was so sweet for me during her newborn photos and I was even able to capture a cute smile. Her big brother couldn’t be more proud and he did an fantastic job posing for me during the family shots. At the end of the session baby Isabella was wide awake and I got amazing expressions and different poses. Those natural sweet moments are wonderful to capture and they create cute memories of baby’s first big milestone. Enjoy some of my favourite images from Isabella’s gallery.
