12 Day Old Newborn Charmer

Oh, boy! Look at all the cute faces this little man gave me. What a charmer! He won me over, that’s for sure. We did loads of blue, brown and grey set ups to capture him in his first few days in the world. Just 12 days old and already winning over the ladies. Wow, what a guy:)

Photographing “Older Newborn” Babies

Ever heard of an “older newborn”? Don’t worry if you haven’t, it’s not a common phrase. In fact, I probably invented it!  An “older newborn” is a baby more than 2 weeks old. As a photographer, I have been trained to get these tiny humans into the studio as soon as possible after birth. The younger they are the sleepier they are.  Younger babies are easier to mold into adorable poses for photos. Unfortunately, many new mommas didn’t realize this important fact. They didn’t realize this has been a prerequisite for newborn photographers for years.  So, in the last while, I’ve changed my views a lot on this issue. I had so many new moms contact me in dismay.  They didn’t realize they had to book so early and didn’t know they had to come so soon!  They just desperately wanted a few photos of their little ones!

In response to that desperation, I began to say yes to these moms.  It made me sad they wouldn’t have beautiful moments of their tiny baby’s life professionally documented. And when I began to say yes, a strange thing happened. I loved the photos we captured! Most importantly, the moms and dads loved the photos too!  Soon I couldn’t tell the difference between some 6 day old sessions and some 4 week old sessions.  I no longer fret about capturing these “older newborns” completely naked and/or molded into angelic poses.  Even so, I’ve been able to capture their adorable smallness and even their smiles and wide eyes. So, the doors are now open to “older newborns”. They are more than welcome. Just be prepared to spend a few hours at the studio. But, don’t worry, it’s pretty comfortable. Just ask these babies below!

2019 at Perfect Moments Photography

This is what 2019 looked like for Perfect Moments Photography. Below are the 168 sessions – 117 outdoor and 51 studio – for our biggest year yet!  It was my desire to grow this business after a conversion I had with my husband in late 2018. Our kids are getting more and more independent and my husband has arranged his life to have additional time at home. This has given me extra time to focus on my passion and career.  Since 2016 I’ve transitioned from wedding photography to family & newborn photography.  This frees up some time to be with my family on weekends while still having plenty of time to photograph clients.  I believe this is what they call work/life balance and although it can still be challenging (as all small business owners know) we are doing it the best we can.

I want to say a huge thank-you to all the clients who put their trust in me to capture their memories.  Those who know me know I don’t take this lightly. I am often checking out locations, checking and rechecking weather, pondering poses,  thinking of options and rearranging my schedule to make sessions come together as best they can. I care deeply that I am producing work people can cherish and memories that bring them joy. So, thank-you!!  Thanks for coming back again and again. Thanks for referring your friends. I am truly grateful for this opportunity and am very excited about what 2020 will bring.

Picture-Perfect Siblings

How lucky am I to capture these picture-perfect siblings?  This darling baby girl and her very proud big sister created a magical studio session.  When awake, baby was captivated by my movements.  She watched me intently for a while.  Unfortunately, she found me boring and she went back to sleep.  She doesn’t know yet how entertaining I can be jumping around to capture the shot!  Don’t worry dear girl, there’s plenty of time for you to learn as I watch you grow.  Just ask your big sister!  Asleep or awake, you are both still picture-perfect siblings.

Ever heard of IGTV? Neither had I until…

Okay, I’ll be honest. I might not be as in the know as I used to be. I might be slipping on my social media jargon. But, you’re never to old to learn, right?! Here I am learning something new and it’s pretty fun, I have to say. I’ve just uploaded my first Instagram TV video. Yup, you’d be right, this is IGTV. Not sure where this will go but I’m having fun. My channel will have lots of behind the scenes clips, business and photography tips and perhaps a few personal things as well. The photos below are the result of the behind the scenes video just posted. Have a look here and stay tuned for the next time.

Down In The Woods Today

When I went down to the woods today, I found a big surprise.  This darling girl was having a picnic.  A picnic with a birthday cake!  Beneath the trees, where nobody sees, she played hide and seek as long as she pleased.  Cause that’s the way, this darling girl had her picnic.  Thankfully, there were no bears, teddy or otherwise, down in the woods today.

Baby Boss – Abbotsford Newborn Photographer

The babies are in charge. We all know that. These tiny, perfect little creatures come into our lives and the next thing you know, there’s a new boss in town! The same thing happens in my studio. I may think I’m in change and have all my plans figured out but, in the end, I know these little people are making the rules. This miniature boss was a pretty nice little lady to have in charge.  She approved of all my wardrobe choices and then dozed off for most of the session. Nice working with you beautiful girl!  Welcome to the world:)

One Year Old Princess Session

Every moment in my new studio feels like such a blessing. I’m so grateful that I am able to continue working at my passion and now I get to do it in a space that inspires me daily. Also, because of the additional space, I’m able to start acquiring even more props. This means I can now offer fully decorated cake smashes. I did my first one last week for this little doll. I couldn’t have been more excited when her momma requested the princess theme and liked my pink and gold colour scheme. We started off with some classic photos and then spent a little time in our fairy tale land. I could not have asked for a better princess to photograph. She is a truly delightful little girl. Happy first birthday little lady!

6 Day Old Bentley

This little guy made his entrance into the world a little early. I’m sure that made his momma happy. He was so tiny and perfect and even smiled for me a few times, too. We did a little rock-a-by and ahh, how I adore those baby snuggles so much!

Newborn Baby Boy

I’m really enjoying my new studio and the babies that come to play. This little man was wide awake most of his session and gave us the most adorable expressions. Such a little ham! He’s going to love these photos when he’s a little older and can appreciate the personality he brought to his first photo session.
