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!

Check out a few of my favourites from our time together and then hop on over to Squamish Baby and enter to win a Simplicity Session with me (details below)…just in time for Mother’s Day!

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.

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!

  • Catherine Lawton - Thanks so much Haley – the giggles have started already! Your approach with the girls (all three) was fantastic – they were so excited to see images that looked so natural. Just looking at the collection made them laugh. These images have preserved a very special time for us – to remember, and reflect on the early weeks of life and adjustments within the family circle.

  • Tahlia Wood - So heartwarming and special to capture all of this, great photos!

  • Carla Santos - Great photos! beautiful family xx

  • Kelly Maple - Great photos Cathy, four beautiful girls.

  • Danna Walker - Wonderful….Just lovely beyond words. :)

  • Chris Rutherford - So precious! A house full of girls is so much fun. Look out Aaron!

  • Patricia Currie - I love the photos! It feels as though I have actually had a visit with my great friend and her special family! Thanks for capturing the shots in a way that help me to feel close to them…even though I’m on the other side of the country!! Trish

  • Jayde Quilty - Beautiful, all 3 are lucky girls! Growing up with a sister is the best!

  • Jenn Rutherford-Moffat - Gorgeous girls…can’t wait to meet her next weekend!

  • Taylor Wood - Now wishing that I had done a newborn session, but my ‘little’ guy never really looked like a newborn. Hoping to get something in the works for a family session this summer.

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

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!
