Maternity Session Stanley Park-Vancouver B.C.
When my family and I first moved to Vancouver and I began the process of moving my photography business from one city to another, I attended a local group for entrepreneurs focused on community over competition in creative industries.
It was there that I was first introduced to Naomi, also a local Vancouver photographer. Our friendship grew and over the next few years we took turns capturing each of our families growth for one another. I have had the pleasure of second shooting with Naomi for her wedding work over at https://naomiphillipsphotography.com/ .
We decided to pick a location for the Maternity session that reflected home and the love that Naomi and her partner Ryan, who live in the West end of Vancouver share. Stanley park and the seawall were the perfect spot for us to explore that sunny winter evening, and Third beach is still one of my favourite shooting locations here in the city.
It allows for the full city-meets-rainforest-meets-ocean experience and you honestly just can’t beat that view! I often tell future clients that the location you choose for maternity, newborn or family sessions, is chosen to reflect your personality and story will often produce the most authentic natural images.
This can be anywhere you love from your favourite coffee shop, to your favourite place for a Saturday morning stroll or the first place you fell in love. If outside isn’t your jam and you feel most comfortable in your own home, lifestyle maternity sessions are the best option! And it is always an options to include two locations (or three!) or outfits in your session if you just can’t decide on a casual our formal wear.
Ultimately reflecting on what you enjoy to do the most will be the groundwork for documenting this moment in your life perfectly tailored to you.
