Dance Photographer Vancouver | Getting Dirty in the Studio!

Just had to post a few photos of this awesome session. I had so much fun, even though it was so much mess! Since I’m doing more and more creative dance sessions, I wanted to explore some new options. This one was so much fun! Thank you to my very talented dancers for running with this idea and doing such a fantastic job! Thank you Melissa Swatez from Dance Effect, Carolyn Schmidt, and Owen Selkirk for your beautiful dance skills!

Newborn Photographer Surrey | First Newborn of 2015..

My first little newborn of 2015! This teeny tiny cutie was born Christmas Eve and was under 5 pounds. Such a little peanut! And she slept fantastically through all her prop shots and transfers, and successfully had her diaper off most of the session without mess. That’s a great way to start the new year!

Newborn Photographer White Rock | Princess A

This little girl has had her Mama’s lips from the get go!! Move over Angelina this one’s giving you a run for your money!

This little dream slept through her whole session, as did her mom for a bit! At just under a week old this little one rocked her session and let me do all sorts of fun stuff with her. I cannot wait till her 6 month session as she’s one of the most perfect, adorable little babies. My friends make cute babies! 2 more on their way for early 2015 too! Although I love working with my regular clients, there’s something unique about being able to capture special moments for the people you know and have known for some time. Thanks to my friends for choosing me to capture such a precious important moment in their babies lives, and I look forward to watching these girls grow!

Newborn Photographer White Rock | Sweet Baby S

I’ve been very lucky to have gotten to capture so many baby girls this year that belong to several of my closest friends! It’s not often my friends get to see me when I’m working and I think they’ve all developed a new appreciation for newborn photography! The patience, the time….the heat in the studio! But all of it is so worth it to have these precious memories for this adorable little one that i’ll get to watch grow up!

I’m sure her next photo session will involve some interesting props! Mom and I had an awesome time watching baby pee on daddy too … maybe it was more then pee. Either way we were laughing too hard to help him out. I just kept taking photos anyways because she was looking very pleased with herself.
