I am so glad you are here! My name is Roberta McLean, a Family Photographer in Vancouver B.C.

I am grateful to be a photographer working with families, newborns and maternity sessions on the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh first nations. As a Family Photographer in Vancouver B.C. its been a part of my creative journey to capture all the beauty to be found here.

I grew up in a small rural town in the interior of British Columbia, making friends and building community has been very important to me since childhood. My hope is that you will find a friend and storyteller here, not just a photographer.

Photography has allowed me to be the fly on the wall, only coming down when someone needs direction but then getting right back up and quietly witnessing the most profound moments life gives us.

My style is candid, sometimes posed photos that are captured and edited to give a nostalgic feel to the final image. I want you to be reminded of the photos of your grandparents and parents that you hold dearly, and hope you will get to look back at the images I take with the same fondness.

Most of the time you will get to hear me practice animal sound skills for one or two photos, trying to get a child to smile. I always try to get everyone looking at the camera in one or two photos (it’s not impossible I promise) my favourite photos are always the ones in-between, the candid real-life.

When the day ends and you get to sit back and take a peek at your photos from our time together, I want you to be able to see yourself and your loved ones in a candid, real way… void of trends and unauthentic moments.
Sharing in life’s most precious seconds and documenting all the steps along the way. I am super excited to memory build with you!

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
