Newborn In Home Lifestyle Session - Adoption

The Gift of Love.

It's only been a week and as you can see Baby A's parents adore her as if they spent 9 months carrying her. Their journey may have been different, but the love is just the same. They got to meet a birth Mom who needed them, who choose them. The butterflies in your stomach as they prepared to adopt, the worries and fears and anticipation and joy, it's all the same. This beautiful girl is celebrated. She is as much of a gift to her parents and they are to her. Adoption is love. Welcome to the world Baby A.

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!

A Walk Along False Creek || Vancouver Family Photos

When I first met Johnny and Kelly about 6 years ago they declared themselves, “Just friends.” We all knew better. Meet Johnny and Kelly and their sweet little girl. Kelly and Johnny love the city and hoped for photos that echoed their love for it. Photographing this family was easy, they were so relaxed and ready for anything. Even baby L was on board with our adventure. Johnny and Kelly have entered into parenthood with a calm grace. Baby L is a blessed little one. 281A0296.jpg 281A0299.jpg 281A0307.jpg 281A0321.jpg 281A0362.jpg 281A0381.jpg 281A0385.jpg 281A0405.jpg 281A0426.jpg 281A0432.jpg 281A0458.jpg 281A0464.jpg 281A0494.jpg 281A0528-Edit.jpg 281A0535.jpg 281A0548.jpg 281A0597-Edit.jpg 281A0628.jpg 281A0638.jpg

Much Gratitude to Michelle from The VanElles for her lovely knit pouf to Joey from Joey Armstrong Photography for all her help and to False Creek Ferries for the amazing ride along False Creek. The sites don’t get any better than the view from the water.

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.

Pretty in Pink: Vancouver Newborn Portraits

I can't think of a better gift to start off the new year! This beautiful little babe was born on New Years Day. Like her Momma, she already loves all things bright and pink! Or at least she will if her Momma has anything to say about it! Baby L was 6 days old the day of our shoot and she rocked her session with a few shut eye moments. Welcome to the world Baby L. You are so loved. Your Momma just can't get enough.lproofs-2.jpg lproofs-11.jpg lproofs-13.jpg lproofs-12.jpg

Welcome to the World Baby K || Abbotsford Newborn Session

This soon-to-be Toronto Blue Jays fan just melted my heart. An obvious Daddy's girl already, Baby K is 6 days new and what a precious bundle she is. Don't worry little girl, mommy will make sure you get to do girlie things too. What a life you'll have, your parents adore you.

No More Waiting: Introducing Joshua

One week ago our beautiful baby boy made his grand entrance. We named him Joshua, after Joshua in the Bible. Years ago in Bible study, my Pastor gave me a verse. It reads, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 - This is our prayer for Joshua.emily dickinson, joshua 1:9, Bible names, no more waiting, baby, family, friends, c-section, labour, delivery This little boy is perfect to us. We are joined with him in joy and happiness. He is our miracle baby, our gift from God. There were many odds against him during labour but he pulled through, strong and healthy. It was a very long labour that ended in c-section. We prayed for a normal delivery but God new better than we did. A c-section it was, and all of it now, is a blur. People have been telling me for about 9 months that all the trials of pregnancy and labour would become a blur, once I met my little man. I am sort of stunned that this has been true. I can’t believe how fast I fell in love with him. I love love love being a mom. The joy in my heart just wants to burst out and tell the whole world that mommy-hood is the best. We are so happy the waiting is over and that parenthood is here. emily dickinson, joshua 1:9, Bible names, no more waiting, baby, family, friends, c-section, labour, delivery Joshua in all his cuteness, has all sorts of faces that tell us what he wants. The hungry faces are the best! Oh he is so precious. Joshua is a daddy’s boy already. As soon as Jason holds him, he snuggles right in - crying ceases. I love their bond, it is so beautiful. emily dickinson, joshua 1:9, Bible names, no more waiting, baby, family, friends, c-section, labour, delivery emily dickinson, joshua 1:9, Bible names, no more waiting, baby, family, friends, c-section, labour, delivery emily dickinson, joshua 1:9, Bible names, no more waiting, baby, family, friends, c-section, labour, delivery emily dickinson, joshua 1:9, Bible names, no more waiting, baby, family, friends, c-section, labour, delivery Last April my step mom gave us a card with a beautiful handwritten quote “Hope is the things with feathers that perches on the soul, and sings the song without the words, and never stops - at all. “ - Emily Dickinson. Such a fitting quote, as we hoped for Joshua for so long and now here he is.

Warmly,

Sherri, Jason + Joshua
