Welcome Baby Levi | Calgary Newborn Photos | Community Photography South Delta

I’ve known Janelle and Steve as a couple for a long time. 8 years to be exact. They both love hiking, the outdoors, travelling, music, they both LOVE life and making the most of every day.

They moved to Calgary about a year ago. The last time I had seen them was over the Christmas holidays when they came to Tsawwassen so we could take their Centennial Beach maternity photos. When I gave them a hug goodbye at the end of the weekend, I knew the next time I would see them, they would be parents.

Baby Levi was born in January. I booked my flight for the end of February to Calgary so I could meet her and take her newborn photos. When I arrived in Calgary it was -17’C (that was a high, it went down to -25’C at night). Janelle pulled up at the airport with baby Levi in the back seat. I got in the car (I rode in the back, with Levi, of course) and saw this little human I had only met over Facetime. She was a perfect mix of both her parents.

I spent the weekend with Janelle, Steve and Levi. Its the coolest thing to see friends, who I’ve known for years, take on their next adventure of being parents. The new love for this little human was extreme. If you couldn’t tell they loved the child by the way they interacted with her, you would know it by Janelle telling Levi she loved her a few times in one hour. I’ll also have to give poppa props to Steve. This guy is breaking the barriers of a hands on dad. Bottle feeding, changing diapers, rocking her, he even took her for a couple hours while us went for a local dinner.

Janelle and Steve, thanks for letting me take these photos of Levi. I loved capturing this time in your lives. She is a doll and I can’t wait for our kids to grow up together. Hopefully they’ll be a little less wild than we were but I hope they live life as full as we did/do! Love you guys and can’t wait to see you!

WELCOME BABY MARLOWE | AT HOME NEWBORN PHOTOS | TSAWWASSEN | COMMUNITYPHOTOGRAPHY SOUTH DELTA

The cutest baby with the cutest name! MARLOWE! Love love love! I feel like I got lucky to be able to capture newborn photos for another DREAM baby in Tsawwassen. As a South Delta photographer I love connecting with families as they welcome a new family member home.

BABY ISLA NEWBORN PHOTOS | TSAWWASSEN | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SOUTH DELTA

DREAM BABY ALERT!!! It was SUCH a pleasure taking newborn photos for the Sherry’s as they welcomed the newest member of their family baby Isla to their tribe. The family recently moved to South Surrey so as a Tsawwassen photographer it was a nice commute to meet up with this family in their new home.

At home newborn photos are oh so special. I love taking photos of families in their natural environment cuddling, loving and making memories together.

WELCOME BABY MICHAEL | NEWBORN PHOTOS | SOUTH DELTA PHOTOGRAPHER

As a South Delta photographer I LOVE taking photos of newborns. What I love even more is when an expectant mom books her maternity session with me and a newborn session. When I take maternity photos in Tsawwassen it allows me to connect with the mom so when the newborn shoot rolls around you already have a common ground. It is SO cool to see the transition from pregnancy to motherhood, and in Olena's case a second time Momma.

The nursery of this photoshoot was my DREAM nursery to take photos in. Minimalistic, pure, white with beautiful pops of color. Big bro George did splendid and we tired  him right out, he fell asleep mid shoot :) That is what I love about at home newborn photos, you go with the flow :)
