Milestone Session Photographer White Rock | Pretty in Pink

newborn baby girl photos roses rosee petals

Having done her maternity photos, we welcomed this beautiful momma back into the studio for her third baby’s newborn photos. With 2 beautiful boys already, the new addition in this family was a gorgeous baby girl. We were happy to go all-out girly with this indoor photo session.

Mom loved using our large collection of newborn headbands and hats. We used our infamous peacock prop and our ever-popular rose petal newborn set up. We have a large selection of props and set-ups and can coordinate with you ahead of time via email if you have any specific requests for specific colour schemes, props, poses, or have certain dislikes. You’re also welcome and encouraged to bring in any items you’d like to include. Some possible suggestions: • stuffed animals • personal blankets • sports memorabilia • hats • wedding rings or personal items (veils, jewellery, ring pillows, wedding saris, etc).

We are in love with how these beautiful baby girl’s newborn photos came together!

If you are considering your own newborn photo session, there are a few tips to keep in mind in order to make the day run more smoothly. In preparation for your newborn photos, it is best if you pack your bags the night before so everything is ready. The prevents panic before the session where it’s easy to forget something. Make sure to remember your black shirt or t-shirt for yourself for the baby-in-arms photos. Don’t forget to pack food/snacks for yourself or others attending the session (siblings etc). There are plenty of options for food located around our studio and you’re welcome to step out if you need anything. If other children are attending, it is helpful if you bring entertainment for them or have a helping hand to keep them occupied or to take them home.

We encourage you to be as relaxed as possible to ensure a stress free environment for baby. Newborns can react to a parent’s mood, so sessions may go less smoothly if you’re stressed and anxious. Once we start the session it may take several minutes for me to soothe baby into a sleepy state.

We welcome you to view our portfolio of other newborn sessions and then contact us to book your newborn photo shoot.

Milestone Photographer Surrey | Brave Mama!

outdoor-maternity-photos-winter-snow

We met this momma and her wonderful family last winter for her maternity photo session. She went all-out to capture baby number three’s belly photos by booking our maternity package that included both indoor and outdoor sessions as well as a milk bath session. We started the session with family photos in our South Surrey studio and did several photos featuring some of our maternity gowns by Sew Trendy Accessories. Milestone sessions refers to Baby’s First Year packages to mark milestones in your child’s life  – starting with maternity, their birth, 6 months, and a first birthday cake smash session. 

Many new moms-to-be hesitate to book maternity photos, and yet by the time they have their second or third baby, they are more comfortable with pregnancy and wish they would have captured images when expecting their first children. Maternity photos are a lovely way to document this special time in your life, that you may not ever experience the same way again. We are well-versed in posing expectant moms-to-be and have a wide variety of wardrobe and prop ideas in order to create gorgeous photos that you will treasure after your baby is born. 

We then ventured outside to Elgin Heritage Farm in South Surrey to brave the cold to capture some striking pregnancy photos of just mom and dad in the snow. No matter the time of year, rain, snow or sunshine, shooting outdoors takes advantage of natural light which makes for dreamy photos. After posing the client in the snow, we went indoors to our studio location in South Surrey, to warm up with a relaxing milk bath session for this mom-to-be. Surrounded by beautiful flowers she was able to relax in a huge bath of milk!

We truly captured some unique images and memories for this mama’s third pregnancy. Visit our portfolio page on our website for more ideas for your maternity session and feel free to contact us to book a milestone session for your family.

Dance Photography South Surrey | Talented Dancers

professional-dance-photos

Several months ago, I had a booth for Gemini Visuals at the first Dance Xpo in New Westminster put on by Just Dance Magazine. The beauty of setting up a booth at trade shows or events that are in a different location than our South Surrey Studio is that we get to meet new faces and tell more people about our creative dance photography packages.

As part of this expo, we offered a free creative dance session as a door prize to one winner. Surprisingly, the winner traveled all the way from their home in Kelowna for this dance photography session! She’s a talented dancer, and we had a great time capturing her marvelous jumps and acro poses. Each person brings their own experiences and techniques to their dance photography session, and sometimes we are able to create an abundance of photos and poses that we haven’t done before, simply because of what the dance brings to our studio.

Working with young talented dancers has long been a passion of Adrienne’s, a former dancer herself. Take a look at our Instagram account for stories of our most recent dance photoshoots, and our portfolio to see exactly what can be achieved in our Surrey Studio for a dance photography session. 

Contact our studio to learn more and book your own creative dance session. With flour or fabric, outdoors or indoors, we are open to creating beautiful art that you or your dancer with cherish for years to come.

Professional Dance Photographer Surrey | Ballet Photos

What do you do, when one of your assistants is also a talented ballerina? Ballet photos of course! Some days you just have to get into the studio and do something creative, and I’m lucky to have so many talented dancers in my life. We had so much fun with this session, and she did an amazing job working with my various maternity gowns from Sew Trendy Accessories, and our beautiful maternity tutu. Meghann dances at Richmond Academy of Dance, and we met when she was just a little girl! It’s been awesome to watch her grow up, and become such a beautiful talented young woman. Many of my clients will recognize her as my toddler whisperer. She’s talented and great with little ones! She’s a valuable asset to Gemini Visuals.
