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 CHARLIE | AT HOME NEWBORN SESSION | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY TSAWWASSEN

I am the luckiest photographer around that I can spend my days with sweet Moms and adorable babies. Photographing babies is so special. My sweet baby girl is already 4 months old and when I photograph a 2 week old baby it really makes me realize how fast they grow. 

 

AT HOME NEWBORN PHOTOS | WELCOME BABY JAMES | DELTA, BC

These baby photos were taken on a typical Vancouver day - rainy, cold and dark. My typical bright, light photos turned contrast and romantic. The newborn photos allowed for the new parents to snuggle baby James in the warmth of their home. I love taking photos the first month after baby arrives, capturing couples with the newest member of their family in their natural environment.

Thank you to this beautiful family for allowing me to photograph their new baby in his first couple weeks after arrival.
