Vancouver weather in the Spring can be a little…well unpredictable! Beautiful sunny days that have you sporting your flip flops and pulling our the sun screen followed by rain, rain and more rain. I am a Vancouverite born and raise so I do love the rain just not so much on session days!

Because I work solely with children and families and have for many years, I know that flexibility is key. A portrait session is not an every day occurrence and I want your images to be perfect. If we have an outdoor session planned and the weather looks uncooperative, I will contact you to coordinate a different date. We rescheduled this session once because it was really rainy and more importantly cold. Cold + Vancouver Baby Photography = not the best idea.

This relaxed family really wanted to go ahead with their rescheduled date even though the weather was call for a little rain. This time it was much warmer out and I’m so glad we went ahead with our shoot as planned. I love the images we captured of their little guy both inside and outside the family home. Mom is a Librarian so incorporating the book case full of books was a natural fit. The home had the most beautiful bay window with the most beautiful light. Grandma loves her garden and it provided such a beautiful backdrop for our shot right outside their home.

There little man was just perfect. Sitting strong, with those beautiful eyes, teething and yet still smiling. Cuteness!

Sometimes simple is the best.

I always ask my clients to think about locations that have meaning to your family – do you have a favorite park? A route you always go for a walk along the beach? Locations that are important to you and your family are the perfect spot to capture you in an authentic way. For this family it was part of the Valleycliff Dyke they adventure along often. This is where to they take their dog for a walk, run off their energy and explore the river. The perfect spot to spend some time celebrating, connecting and capturing this very special family. This is their outdoor playground and it is BEAUTIFUL!

This family came to me through the Tiny Light Foundation. A fabulous organization that connects professional photographers with children and families that have been faced with a life-altering diagnosis. It is one of my favourite ways to give back to my community. Capturing everyday moments like these are so important because no matter how big or little, how strong or weak, how sick or healthy, this moment should be remembered.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Lani aka Squamish Baby and her sweet family. When we moved to Squamish last Fall I stumbled upon Squamish Baby and was so happy I did. It is such a great resource for all things family in Squamish.

This Maternity Session was really just a relaxed walk in the forest behind their home. The goal was simple to capture their excitement for the new addition and to celebrate their family as it is right now. Beautiful light, fantastic location, natural smiles and a gorgeous baby bump. Not a bad way to spend a morning!

My all time favourite product combined with a fun family maternity session + relaxed newborn lifestyle session!

I will never get tired of telling people just how much albums mean to me. They are a timeless way to showcase all the beautiful images from your Vancouver baby photography session. I believe strongly in offering tangible, high-quality products to my clients to preserve their images for many years.

If there is something I wish for my children to have in a future where I may not be here, it would be albums full of their childhood memories. Albums they could perhaps share with their own children and grandchildren. Tangible printed pages that they can turn and relive like a good book. Images and moments that will remind them of how wonderful it is to be a child and show them just how loved they are.

Your Keepsake Album will hold all of your must have images and tell the story of this time in your life. You will be able to easily share with family and relive this moment over and over again. Designed to last a lifetime, your children will someday share this treasure with their own children…a true family heirloom!


Let’s all make a promise to each other that we will make it a priority to print our images. There really is no excuse as to why you only have your images on your phone or computer!

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!
