Squamish Newborn Photographer | Six Weeks Old

What a lucky little lady to be born into a home with two adoring older sisters. Two older sister to look out for her and for her to look up to. I can almost hear the giggles and laughter that will fill this home in the years to come.

It was a pleasure to spend a very rainy morning photographing this new family of five. I really loved witnessing the beautiful interaction between these three girls. Their newborn sister was almost 6 weeks old which may be one of my new favourite ages to photograph. She was the perfect balance of sleepy, alert, content and full of personality. Her older sisters were so gentle and loving with her.

It is often said that newborns are best photographed in the first two weeks of life. This may be true but older newborns are just so full of joy and you start to see the emergence of their personality. Lifestyle newborn photography is really about a new family and is focused on natural interactions. Having a baby under two weeks of age become less important.

This is particularly helpful for Mothers who contact me once their newborn baby is over that magic age for traditional newborn photography. I have also found that photographing families when baby is a few weeks old allows older siblings some time to adjust and connect with their new baby. Just because a baby is a little “older” it no longer means you have to miss out on those precious newborn moments!

Squamish Newborn Photography | Baby Makes Four

Last Fall my family and I relocated to Squamish, BC. It is beautiful, has outdoor recreation opportunities literally out our front door and is full of young families. I’ve heard that it is one of the fastest growing municipalities in BC. We have settled in, met plenty of great people and are starting to put down roots in our new community. We are really loving it here. Most of my clients are in Vancouver and that’s no problem because it’s only a short drive away!

It was nice to meet one of Squamish’s newest residents in his loving home. This Squamish newborn photography session was held entirely in their two bedroom apartment. From personal experience I know just how hard it can be to leave the house with a new baby. That’s why my very favourite place to photograph newborns is in the comfort of your home…I bring the studio to you!

Some clients are worried that their home won’t be a photogenic setting for a portrait session? Don’t. A good photographer experienced working on location will quickly be able to find the best locations in your home. They won’t need much space and can easily shoot around any problem areas. I promise you, your house IS beautiful!

This session was photographed throughout their two bedroom apartment. We used the living room couch, carpet, the master bed and this last series of images were all shot against a bare wall in the kids bedroom. Yes, there were toys and some clutter around but we just moved things as needed!Squamish Newborn Photography

Displaying Family Photos | Print Your Art

This little wall at the top of my stairs makes me smile from ear to ear. I call it my wall of happiness. My own family captured and displayed in a simple, modern and smile-worthy way. Are your walls this happy?

This is the second in a series of posts I will share throughout the year around the theme Print Your Art. You can click to read more about my favourite photographic keepsake. In this digital age it is too easy to forget to print our images. I am guilty of this and I am sure some of you are too. We let them sit on our hard drives collecting imaginary dust. But the thing is…images look so much better in print!

Being a newborn and family photographer in Vancouver and the Sea to Sky Corridor (Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton) brings a lot of joy to my life and a lot of joy to the lives of the families I have the pleasure of working with. Awesome families hire me to capture their lives and to create amazing keepsakes or wall displays for their homes. Now don’t get me wrong, I do sell digital files from my photography sessions. In fact, digital files are one of my most popular products. Even so I like to ensure my clients leave their custom photography session with some printed items.

I strongly encourage you to print your images. When hiring a professional photographer choose one who can create a wall of goodness like this for you and smile every morning as you walk past it. Not only will it make you smile but it will make your children feel special, loved and important. They will love to pause to see the images, name all the people and notice how much they have grown and changed. It really is an investment you will treasure forever!

Vancouver Relaxed Newborn Photography | Hugo

It was a very rainy Vancouver morning when I arrived at little Hugo’s home for his newborn session. Inside it was so warm, peaceful and cozy. His Mama gave me a tour and together we selected the master bedroom as the place where we would capture most of the images. With beautiful north facing widows the bedroom had the most beautiful light.

We began with images of the new family of three. I love watching new parents love on their new baby. It is such a beautiful thing to witness. Sitting together and admiring their new son. Baby kisses, family snuggles and relaxing together we created genuine photos full of love. Of course we did capture some smiling at the camera shots for Grandma but the images filled with interaction and emotion are always client favourites!

I then focused on little Hugo in his soft organic cotton sleep sac. I love how small he looks both in his parents arms and on their bed. After a quick feed Hugo was swaddled in a muslin swaddling blanket. This time I focused on all the tiny details. His tiny little ears, his precious fingers, his full head of hair and his beautiful lips. These are the type of images that I want to capture for you during a Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session, so you can remember those details forever.

I was so glad Grandma + Grandpa dropped in for a few photos. He is the first grandchild on both sides which is something special to be documented. I have a feeling little Hugo is one extremely loved little guy!

Vancouver Newborn Photos | Quinn

I first met this beautiful family before the birth of their first child. We celebrated their pregnancy with a maternity session and then met soon after for their newborn session. They are really laid back, fun and loving with each other. Such a great family and we always get the best photos. The images we created during their most recent family maternity session are some of my very favourite.

I love the images we were able to capture at home of this sweet little newborn at only nine days old. Newborn photos captured at home can be so relaxed, peaceful and personal. In those early days after you welcome a new baby your home is your world – where you spend your time together, where you are most comfortable. It allows me to focus on creating images that show the new connections and bonds your family shares. It also allows us to incorporate elements from the home. The antique cradle shown below was Dad’s when he was little and the bright and fun button rug was found in big sister’s playroom. I believe images that show your families connections and elements of your space are the images that will mean the most years from now.

The images we created together work to tell the story of this amazing and special time in this families life. I will be creating an heirloom keepsake album for them very similar to the one we created when their first born arrived. It is my hope that these books become treasured family keepsakes to pull out, cuddle up on the couch and remember. I imagine that someday these two will be sharing their albums with their own children remembering how little they were, how young Grandma and Grandpa looked and how much their own newborn baby resembles them.

For now let us step back into the present and celebrate the arrival of Quinn. Welcomed home with love.
