2 Months Old Baby Photography Session in Richmond BC | Leo

Baby Leo came to my photography studio in Richmond for his first photoshoot. He was 8 weeks old and considered “too old” for newborn photos. However, he slept at the end of the session and I could some newborn style poses as well. Even if you miss the newborn window for photos (which is ideally under 2 weeks of baby’s life), I’m still able to capture beautiful memories of your little one. You want to capture how small they are, their tiny little features and cute expressions. I offer baby sessions for babies from 2 months old and all packages include family photos as well. You can learn more at Baby Session Info page.

I also offer “Grow With Me” package which includes mini sessions during baby’s first year of life.

Contact me and book your baby’s photo session today!

5 Theme and Colours Ideas for Cake Smash Photo Session

Over the last 7 years, I’ve done hundreds and hundreds of cake smash sessions to celebrate baby’s birthday. Not only when babies turn one, but this session can be done for older kids too. When they are two-years-old, three-years-old and older, the session can be a lot of fun as the child is more aware of what is going on and usually enjoys the cake even more! I offer a variety of sets and backdrops to choose from and I always open to suggestions as well.

Below you will find 5 THEME IDEAS FOR CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION. Cake smash sessions are done in my studio in Richmond BC.

Unicorn cake smash was definitely the most popular theme for girls in 2019. I provide to my clients a unicorn outfit and headband to coordinate with the rest of the setup. We used the colours purple, pink, blue and gold for this one but the are other combinations that work well too.


Circus or Carnival theme cake smash is a lot of fun! It works for both boys and girls. I added some (real) popcorn and animals such as an elephant and a tiger to bring more of the circus vibe. The cake just brings the whole set together and I loved how it turned out.


Can you tell mint, pink and yellow are my favourite colours?! For this cake smash, we used gold balloons instead of the yellow and I also added some flowers. I love how the tutu and baby necklace match everything else. Definitely a very popular theme for cake smash for girls.

pink-mint-gold-cake-smash-amanda-dams-photographyMint and blue? Yes, please! I love how clean and colourful this set is at the same time. The owls were a special request from mom. The cake from Ela The House of Cakes was perfect for this neutral cake smash for boys. Note that I used some patterns for this setup, the polka dot balloons, candle and the chevron pompom paper flowers.


How adorable is this Panda cake smash session? Pink, black and white together just make everything pop! The outfit and headband perfectly match the set and I made all the custom banners myself.

Vancouver Newborn Photographer | Kaya

I absolutely love to include personal items into my setups and create images with special meaning to my clients. Newborn photography is my passion and there is no better job in this world than cuddling cute babies all day! Mama bought a beautiful piece she wore at her wedding and the colour palette hot pink and navy blue just suits baby Kaya perfectly. Of course, we had to do a special photo for daddy too, as you can see, he is a big fan of Blue Jays.

Newborn babies are best photographed under two weeks of age if possible. Dates fill very fast as we take on rebookings for one-year milestone sessions up to one year in advance! Booking in advance is a must, otherwise, you could miss out or be put on a waitlist. Contact me and book your session today!

Newborn sessions are done in my studio in Richmond and serve clients from Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey, Delta and New Westminster. I provide all the props and accessories for the baby. I would love to have the opportunity to work with your family and create beautiful memories for you just like the ones I created for Kaya’s family.

Christmas Mini Session | 2019

Christmas is my favourite time of the year! Christmas mini sessions are very popular and every year they are booked so fast. In 2019 we had 16 beautiful families in the studio and I had so much fun seeing repeated clients and meeting new ones too. Christmas photos are the perfect way to celebrate the Holidays, create beautiful memories of the family and these photos make amazing Christmas cards to send to family and friends. These magical photos are done in my studio in Richmond and I receive, every year, clients coming from Vancouver, Surrey, Delta, Langley, North Vancouver, Burnaby, etc.

I love to create a different setup every year and I can’t wait for next year’s mini sessions!

Newborn Photography Pilot Set | Reyan

When baby Reyan came to the studio for his newborn photos, mommy had a few requests and I’m always up to a challenge. This beautiful family was just moving from Dubai to Vancouver and I bet the expectations were high!

Reyan was such an adorable and loved rainbow baby, and for that I made sure to create a beautiful image for him. Reyan’s dad also had the dream of being a pilot, and I couldn’t help but using my props to make Reyan looking like a pilot!

And last but not least, mommy had the most amazing maternity photos at Seymour Mountain, while snowing during winter (you can see it at my Instagram page)
