What to Expect and What to Wear for Your Outdoor Photo Session

WHAT TO EXPECT

1. Lots of fun and laughter. Our goal is to get you laughing. Laughing photos are my favourite.

2. We shoot rain, shine, cloudy or snowy. As long as it’s safe, we will photograph you. Some of the best sessions happen in the craziest weather. How can you not laugh at the torrential downpour in the midst of sunshine. With the constant changing elements, we’ve learned to make it great in all conditions. Don’t worry I don’t mind running for cover or having my assistants hold umbrellas over your head. 281A0191.jpg

3. There might be puddles and there might be puddle jumping.

4. If the sun is in your eyes we can work with that! 281A0171.jpg

5. If you really really do not want a rainy day session…. please tell me and I will do my best to accommodate. Last minute cancellations will have a fee.

THE WARDROBE:

A) If you wear really busy patterns, people will see the patterns before you face.

B) Co-ordinate your wardrobes so they compliment each other. 281A0432.jpg

C) Bring an umbrella and or a raincoat. This is rainy country!

D) Bring secondary shoes in case of lots of walking, climbing or puddle jumping

E) White can wash out many skin tones. If you wear white, consider adding a colourful accessory to your outfit.

F) We love props. Do you have things you love as a family that you want to include? Bring it! 281A9876-Edit-Edit.jpg

G) The Vanelles are our merchant for props and knits for our newborns and toddlers. If you have something in mind let me know and do our best to make it happen! Fees may apply.

Remember these are just my suggestions from my experiences. You can do whatever you want!

Maternity Styled Shoot || Granville Island

A year and a half ago I had a baby, and as I changed and joyfully walked blindly into the newness of motherhood, I knew my business had to change with me. I was different - the miracle of pregnancy and child raising let me enter an exclusive club of motherhood - I didn’t even know existed. I still can’t even comprehend that in one moment my baby was in womb and then he was out. There are no words to describe it. Instead of speaking the words that are amiss - I photograph life. Babies, newborns, families and expectant moms (and dads) - both adoptive and biological. That is my business. The miracle of life. When I planned this shoot a year ago, I knew I wanted Claire to be my Momma-to-be - her natural beauty and gorgeous eyes and incredible joy and excitement to enter motherhood were the perfect combination. As long as I have known Claire, she has wanted a family. Before motherhood she was a fierce businesswoman (award-winning kitchen designer extraordinaire), and now she has taken on the role of Motherhood with grace. Claire is a playful, take life and run with it kind of girl. She also loves things to look beautiful; I wanted her playfulness and her love for beauty to shine amongst her beautiful baby belly. So enter Claire and her precious soon-to-be-born baby girl (now almost one year old), to the playful and colourful Granville Island, a gem in the heart of Vancouver overlooking False Creek and the Burrard Street Bridge.

Four Friends, Four Moms, Four Babies: Langley Maternity Photography

Being pregnant is a blessing, but it can also be very challenging. What a beautiful thing it is, when you get to have a friend to share it with. Well these lovely ladies each had three friends. As the seasons changed we documented them together, before each birth, and again once all the babies were born. As you might notice, the order changed at the end and we are missing a photo because dear little baby M decided to join us early and baby A decided (much to his momma's dismay) to come really late. Thus the last two babies entered this world only days apart. What a celebration. Four babies in almost four months. Welcome to the world you beautiful babies. I just know you'll all be friends.

Waiting for you: Adopting from Haiti || Maple Ridge Maternity Session

Two years ago, around the time I met Candice, she and Kevin started filling out the daunting piles of paperwork, required for the adoption process. They had decided to adopt from Haiti and Haiti allows you to adopt siblings so they might even be able to bring home TWO little ones. Candice and Kevin, they are ready. They are excited. At the beginning of the process Candice wrote a beautiful letter to her baby(ies) .

To my Baby,

There are so many things I want to say to you. I cannot express the excitement and anticipation that Daddy and I have for you. We talk about you every day. Although we don’t know your name or if you’re even born yet, we are extremely excited to meet you. We love you already and have never experienced so much love for a person we’ve never met before. Daddy talks about you constantly… it is the sweetest thing in the world. I fall in love with him all over again when he talks about you and our future together as a family. He is so excited for the day that you will be in our arms, as am I. I dream about that day every day. I wonder what you will be like. I dream about the trips we will take together and the experiences we will have as a family. I know that I will never want to let you go when I first hold you in my arms.

I love you so much already.

Love Mommy.

I am so excited for Candice and Kevin. They are on an incredible life changing Journey. Being a parent, is truly one of God’s beautiful miracles and they will get the joy and privilege of raising a baby (or two) who may have otherwise spent their whole life in an orphanage, or worse. They get to give their babies love and to teach and raise their babies to know a life of love and laughter.

Congrats Candice and Kevin!
