Baby Jacob | 6 days | Richmond Newborn Photographers

Working in this artistic industry has always been such a gift to my soul.  The creative minds that often come together and help each other out always makes you feel a part of a community.  A while back I needed some help to learn more about videography and was able to spend the day with Desy of RF Weddings.  So it seemed only fitting that as they were waiting to meet their first born, that I offer to help with their newborn photos.

We had a really great time in the studio, two cameras going as of course little Jacob’s Daddy wanted to get a few of his boy as well.   Jacob at only 6 days was the perfect little model for us and was happy to sleep through the entire session.

I’ve included a few photos that Desy captured of me working as well as I don’t often see that perspective 🙂  It also gives you a little glimpse at the studio and set up for the day.

Welcome to the world Jacob!!  I trust this will not be your last photo shoot 🙂

Georgia | 10 days | Whiterock Newborn Photographer

Meet precious little Georgia!

I have had the honour to photograph each of the 3 babies from this awesome family… and Georgia is the first girl.  There are times that a home session just makes more sense for a family, and this time was one of them.  With two energetic young boys running around and a newborn to pack up for, it was much easier that I came to them.

We captured a few images of this precious little girl and then some with everyone.

Here are a few from our afternoon!


Winter Maternity | Langley Portrait Photographer

I haven’t been on the blog for many months, but what better session to start back with!!!  This is my beautiful cousin, ready to welcome her first born to the family.  I can’t wait to meet this lucky little girl/boy (ps I think it’s a girl).   We had talked about a few ideas to do some maternity photos, but then the weather shifted and we got a few days of snow.

I’m so glad we went out on this beautiful morning.  Just a dust of the frosty white stuff and beautiful blue skies.  Daddy was at work, but we got a few photos with one excited Gramma to be 🙂


HENRIETTA | A Birth Story | Birth Photographer

Earlier this year I was so excited to share in such a beautiful birth story.    It started in the fall when I met everyone.  This was to be my first surrogate family capturing a live birth and we were all very excited about the journey ahead.    As this little angle was to be born in BC, her Dad’s wanted to have some maternity photos captured in the place she was born, so what better than on a fall day to head into Maple Ridge and find some water, forrest and mountains.

It seemed like no time at all before they were back in town and ready for her arrival!   After only a few days of being back in BC, I got the call… we were all sure it sounded like labour and rushed into the hospital.  After all of us spent countless steps going up and down stairs to try and keep labour progressing… it was best we just waited.  It was a few days later that this time was it… she was on her way with great hope that she would be able to be delivered naturally.  Several long hours of labour and a whole lot of oxytocin to get to the next stage, it was decided the best thing would be to go to the OR.

We had already suspected this might happen and had asked the staff if I were to be able to come in and photograph – but were told no, there were already going to be two Dad’s in there… too many people.   I followed everyone down the hall as far as I could go and waited outside the operating room doors.  To my surprise, our nurse came out quickly and said “hurry… go find some scrubs and you can come in!!”  In a flash, I was back and ready!

What an honour to be present during something so life changing, so precious and magical.  The love, the bond is instant and they are now a family of 3.

Welcome little Henrietta!!!

Morning Sunrise Maternity | Surrey Maternity + Newborn Photographer

Not too long ago I received an excited message from a previous client.  I love seeing someone’s name pop up that I haven’t seen in a while… I can usually guess what it means.  ANOTHER BABY 🙂

I was right.  This family was waiting to welcome their second baby and were so excited to capture this journey.  We really wanted to use the same location that we had for their first born’s maternity … but changed it up this time to start in the morning.

The entertainment of this session was trying to keep young Georgia in the frame!  She was more excited to run past me and all around me than to actually be in the pictures, but it sure made for some fun images and lots of laughs.

I can’t wait to meet this little bean and capture another in home session with this family! Stay tuned!!
