During the session relax and have fun! Your baby will sense your mood. Feel free to bring along books, iPad, laptop or any drinks or snacks. Parents and siblings shots are done at the beginning of the session. I have plenty of experience working with newborns and you should always expect the unexpected. Pee, poop will happen and don’t panic or be embarrassed, it’s a normal part of the newborn photography sessions and it happens all the time. I wash all used blankets, wraps and outfits after every session and the studio is always kept very clean. Baby will also have fussy moments, and that is just fine. You won’t be rushed through your session, and we will have plenty of time to cuddle, change, feed and relax your little one. A newborn session can take up to four hours and we will respect all needs of your baby.
“We just finished our newborn photoshoot and I’m so impressed with Rachel! Our little boy was super fussy and didn’t want to sleep but Rachel had unconditional patience and such a loving touch with our 5 days old boy.
I highly recommend her to anyone interested in beautiful photos with an outstanding photographer.” – Shauna

>> Prices & Packages It is very important to schedule your session before baby arrives. I know that once your baby is born, you’ll have a lot on your mind, and selecting a photographer might not be the first thing on your list.
That’s why it’s best to book your baby’s photo session a couple months before your due date. I will add your estimated due date to my calendar and once your little one arrives we will schedule your newborn session within the first two weeks.
I only book a few sessions a month so my calendar is very flexible. Even if baby arrives before or after your due date we will find a date and time that work for both of us.What if my baby is already born? I’m always happy to photograph older babies with the understanding that we might get only awake and wrapped shots.
If your baby is already born don’t hesitate to contact me, I sometimes have last-minute openings!
We have visitor parking with plenty of spots in our parkade. From the parade to our studio, it is stroller accessible with no steps.
We are centrally located to serve clients in the Greater Vancouver area. Our studio is east of Boundary Road on Canada Way, just off Highway 1. From most places in Greater Vancouver, we are less than half an hour drive.
Congratulations! It must be an exciting time for you and finding a newborn photographer to document your baby’s first days must be a very important decision as it can be done only once. Newborn photography is more than beautiful images. Newborn photography is for capturing the emotion and the connection to your tiny little newborn baby so you can preserve the memory for the lifetime. Newborn baby images are only possible because your baby is so tiny. Your baby will grow much faster than you will want them to. We are so happy that you are here to capture these precious moments while they are still tiny! Our newborn photography packages start at $375.
We can promise that during your newborn baby photography session, you and your family will feel right at home!
I offer a complete set of props and accessories, you don’t have to worry about anything. If you would like to do some family shots, we will do those at the beginning of the session.
Our studio is not in a pet friendly building, however, we have allowed clients to bring their dogs to sessions in the past. Because we photograph newborns in our studio and provide a hypoallergenic space, they cannot shed. They must also be well behaved and if they can be commanded not to bark, that is very helpful. Ideally, they should be brought into the studio with a leash and in a kennel.
Are you ready to book? Contact us if you want to proceed with your booking to secure your spot. We are known for professional services. Find out our work flow from the moment you contact us to the finish.
When you bring your newborn baby to our studio, you don’t have to worry about what to buy. We have everything! Lots of hats, headbands, wraps and blankets. We continue to bring in new props as well.
We are available by appointments only. We do not take walk-ins.
After the session, we will meet again for your View&Order appointment where you will select your favourite images from your session and I will assist you in designing artwork specific to your unique style. The View&Order appointment can be at the studio or at client’s home (no travel fee). The editing process will take about 3 weeks after your selection. A USB drive with selected edited high-resolution images and all products from your package will be shipped to your home.
We also provide many outfits and props for 3 months (100 days), 6 months, and 1 year old babies. Our outifts are unique and make your baby look so adorable for the photo session. Most of our outfits are made for studio photography and cannot be found at stores.
