session information and pricing
If you are here to consider newborn photography and expecting a baby soon, I'd like to congratulate you with the beautiful upcoming changes in your life! That's extremely exciting!
I will be honoured to be a part of your story and to meet you for a newborn photoshoot in Vancouver, North Vancouver or area! I shoot both at my home studio in West Vancouver or homes (for lifestyle in home newborn photography).
Having experience with over 100 babies, I’ve been trained in newborn posing and safety to ensure your newborn is in safe hands. I take the whole process seriously but for you and the baby it will be easy and fun!
Please feel free to contact me if you can't find what you are looking for or have specific questions.
I look forward to meeting you for newborn photography in Vancouver and capturing the story of your family!
When to book a newborn photoshoot?
Ideally the newborn session should be booked during pregnancy. It's necessary to secure your spot and to have enough time to plan your session ahead. The recommended time for the newborn photography is the first two weeks after birth.
How to prepare for a newborn session?
Special instructions and a Questionnaire are sent to parents to ensure the best experience during the photo shoot. They include clothing advice and tips on how to prepare the baby.
How is the session going?
The session lasts up to 3 hours and includes nursing, cuddling, changing and putting the baby to sleep. To ensure baby's comfort it is very warm in my Vancouver home studio. I usually take the baby after feeding, comforting him before he finally falls asleep. Newborn photography takes a lot of patience and time. I always make sure the baby is happy and safe and that families get the most beautiful images of their little treasures.
Do parents need to help?
No, they don't. Usually I do everything myself and parents are welcome to relax on the sofa, have a little nap or read. Sometimes I ask parents to assist for certain prop shots.
What to expect?
Images you may expect and request: simply the baby (sleeping and/or awake, swaddled and/or undressed), the baby in a prop (a nest/a basket/a bowl/a bed), the baby and siblings, the baby and mom, the baby and dad, family.
When do you get your images?
Within first 48 hours after the session you will receive a link to the private proofing gallery. You will be able to choose your favourite images for further retouching. The link to the finished gallery will be sent in two weeks after finalizing your choices.
