TSAWWASSEN MATERNTIY PHOTOS | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SOUTH DELTA | BOUNDARY BAY

This was such a special one for me! Jess and Geordie are having a baby! And I had the honour of capturing their maternity photos in Boundary Bay! They’re some of my closest friends and have been in my life for many years! I met Jess in grade 5 at English Bluff Elementary in Tsawwassen. We were immediate besties from day one. We played sports together, travelled together, celebrated holidays together, got into trouble in high school together. Over the years, the only time we EVER had a disagreement was in grade 5 when we couldn’t decide who was going to be Sporty Spice :)

Jess and Geordie met in highschool, and although they never dated until afterwards, our whole friend group saw this couple in the making a mile away. And we were all so HAPPY when they finally figured out they were perfect for each other :)

The evening of their maternity photos can only be describes as dreamy. It was one of the first warm nights of the year and clear skies in the forecast. We headed down to Boundary Bay for their shoot. Jess was totally prepared with a gorgeous red Minca blanket, and Geordie (bless him) came with Four Winds beers to share, with me, not Jess ;) Their sweet pup Bodhi added such a fun and candid element to their photos!

At sunset, we headed to the dyke for gorgeous photos as the skye was changing from blue, to purple to pink. A perfect way to end a maternity shoot.

Jess and Geordie, I know I’ve said it a million times, but I’m SO happy for you guys! You guys are going to make the most amazing parents and I can’t wait to raise our kids together! xoxo P

The story of how WE met

Janelle (the beautiful mamma to be in these photos) and I go WAY back. Back to grade one at Beach Grove Elementary, here in Tsawwassen. She’d moved from Toronto and we became fast friends. She was bright, had a big imagination and was FUN. After one of our first play date, my Dad came to pick me up. He noticed a family photo sitting on the counter. He asked her Mom “Hey! How do you know Don?!”. My dad (who also is also from Ontario) had recognized one of his high school friends, which turned out to be Janelle’s Uncle.

This realization blew both of our 6 year old minds. We decided, since MY dad and HER uncle used to be friends, WE must be related.

The funny thing about this story? 25 years later, we still tell SO many people THIS story. Even if they want to hear it or not..

ABOUT THE MATERNITY SHOOT

Holy smokes I don’t think I have EVER been so cold taking photos. I was bundled to the max (scarf, boots, multiple layers) and I was FREEZING! SO you can imaging how cold Janelle must have been! In a dress, in December strutting her beautiful pregnant belly up and down Centennial Beach. She made the photos not look like winter, but a beautiful spring day! We had an absolute blast, as we always do :) If you scroll to the very end of the gallery you can see some behind the scene pics!

Janelle and Steve, the way you have chosen to live your lives with joy, music, adventure and love is such an inspiration to those around you. I can’t wait to come to Calgary and meet your little bundle of joy!


CENTENNIAL BEACH MATERNITY PHOTOS | TSAWWASSEN | TSAWWASSEN PHOTOGRAPHER

I am so thankful to live in Tsawwassen and be able to have so many fabulous locations to take photos. My hands down favourite is Centennial Beach. It is the perfect backdrop for family photos. Centennial has a balance between flora and the beach. The sand is the perfect reflector to make dreamy, creamy skin tones. 

This beautiful South Delta Family are expecting not one but TWO babies. Momma Nicole looked absolutely stunning in her Aritizia dress. Sweetheart Brielle enjoyed the beach and snuggles from Mom and Dad. She is taking it all in as the only child before she is promoted to big sister.

K + D WHYTECLIFF PARK MATERNITY PHOTOS | WEST VANCOUVER | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SOUTH DELTA

I generally stick close to sunny Tsawwassen for my photoshoots. However, I'm always up for an adventure to take photos at a new location around the Lowermainland! I was really excited when Kim and Dimitri asked me to take their maternity photos at Whytcliff Park in West Vancouver. A quick google search proved this location to be a stunner and when I arrived it did not disappoint!
