This is the first in a series of posts I will share throughout the year around the theme Print Your Art. 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!

Now don’t get me wrong, I do sell Digital Files from my photography sessions. In fact, Digital Files are my most popular product. Even so I like to ensure my clients leave their custom photography session with some printed items. This is why I offer a number of beautiful, archival quality boutique products. Each digital file purchase also comes with a Digital File Care Card outlining how to get your Digital Files off your computer and into your life.

One of my favourite products to showcase the images from your photography session is an Heirloom Keepsake Album. These stunning 10×10 albums are custom designed to suit each clients needs. The interior pages are real photographic prints that lay beautifully flat. These albums will hold all your favourite images from our time together and are designed to last a lifetime. Imagine your little baby showing her own baby this album many years from now.

Thirteen fabulous new linen covers to choose from. I Love the texture and variety of colours now offered. Hard to choose just one!Print_Your_Art_03
Seventeen luscious new full-grain leather covers available. These 100% natural leathers have been selected for their grains, texture, strength, and quality. They are simply STUNNING!Print_Your_Art_04

Super excited to participate in a new personal project with a group of super talented photographers! Each month throughout the year we will be posting one image on a particular theme. This month the theme is reflection. Seems fitting for the first month of the year where I always find myself reflecting on the year gone past and looking forward to the fresh start a new calendar year brings.

This post has me reflecting back to a trip we took last Fall to Tofino, BC. Ahhhhhhhh Tofino I think I love you. Actually, I know I love you. You are one of my very favourite places to visit. I could spend all day on your beaches rain or shine. I will call this first image “Reflection” and because I cannot limit myself to just one image I will add a few more…just for good measure!

I had the pleasure of photographing this couple a few years ago when the were pregnant with their first baby. Can you believe this newborn is now this beautiful, funny and energetic soon-to-be big sister? I really do love watching couples as they welcome a new addition. I love seeing those same babies grow up and become big brothers or sisters. I can’t wait to a meet the newest addition to this family…any day now!

Vancouver Maternity Family Photography
Pregnancy is an amazing time in your life, whether you’re expecting your first baby or your fifth! Maternity family photography sessions are your chance to show off your gorgeous baby bump as well as capture your child’s excitement for the new addition. I love the images of Mama with her big girl especially the image where big sister is showing me where her baby is.

Holding your maternity session outdoors is such a great way to include the beauty of the West Coast. For families with older siblings it is a great way to capture their energy and spirit. I love the images of big sister with her big belly laugh and being tossed in the air by her daddy. Moments I’m sure she will look back on with love. This family is planning to create an heirloom session album with the images from both this session and their newborn session. I will be sure to come back and highlight some of my favourite spreads from the album in a future blog post.
