Studio Maternity Photo session – Vancouver

I am swooning over this maternity session done at my Kitsilano studio. Mom was just glowing and the lighting was perfect that day. In my maternity sessions I tend to use 2 to 3 different set ups and a couple of gown changes. One set up is more natural and airy using the windows and the other setup is more posed and using my studio lighting.

This mom to be chose to bring one of her gowns and she used my White Lace long sleeve gown for her second look, both ordered form SewTrendyAcccessories. We are using a flower crown in one of the shots which is handmade by me and available for maternity sessions.

Mom and dad both were very relaxed and we had a lot of fun during the session. A studio maternity session is a great choice for the rainy, cold season and the result is amazing. We are able to get elegant posed shots as well as more natural poses and lighting.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Winter Maternity Session at Cypress Mountain

Aida Miri Photography offers outdoor maternity sessions as well as in-studio sessions for the Winter season. We really enjoyed this winter session with snow on Cypress Mountain. This beautiful mom was very brave to wear a dress in the cold and pose in the snow! But it was totally worth it for these gorgeous images. For winter outdoor sessions I try my best to be quick and have warm jackets ready to help mom keep warm. This does not mean that we will get less images by any means. You will still receive a beautiful variety of photos.

FAQs

 

What can I bring into the event?

Please be dressed up and ready to start upon arrival. Holiday attire is recommanded! It is always a good idea to colour coordinate and match. Whites, greys, reds and greens are good options. There will be some Christmas props ready but if there is something specific you have in mind ie. balloons, Santa hats, scarves, signs, etc. please bring your own and consult with the photograph prior to the session aidamiriphoto@gmail.com

 

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Send an email to aidamiriphoto@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.

 

What’s the refund policy?

The sales are final and NON_REFUNDABLE. Please make sure you pick the right time and arrive 10 minutes early. Session fee will not be refunded if clients are late and/or miss their session. If you arrive late, that time will be deducted from the 20 minutes that is booked for you.

 

Can I wear shoes?

Outside shoes are not allowed in the studio due to hygenic reasons. If you like to have shoes for your photos please bring clean pairs with you and put it on for the session. No outside shoes please.

 

Can we change outfits?

It’s a good idea to bring two outfits for the children to get a variety if there is enough time. Unfortuntely due to the short nature of the session adults will not have time to do an outfit change.

 

How do I receive my images?

Families will receive an online proofing gallery between 5-7 days after the session. You can choose your favourite images from the gallery and the final edits will be sent to you between 10-14 days after your selection is complete.

The final gallery will include your high resolution images and you can have them printed at a printing shop.

 

 

 

Vancouver newborn studio photography – Baby R

Baby Raphael was a true angel! I enjoyed photographing this little bundle of joy a lot. Mommy is in the same industry and it felt great to create images for someone who does photography too. Parents decided to not use a pacifier, which is an essential for every newborn session, so daddy was very helpful with letting baby suck on his finger to settle.

 

We always honour parents opinions and decision. I want everyone to feel comfortable at their photo session and not feel pushed at all. I will never use a pose that is not safe for the baby and parents are not comfortable with and I will never insist on using a pacifier if parents are absolutely against it, even for a few hours. The session is about you, and your new baby and I want to create beautiful memories for you, both through the photo session and through my imagery.

 

Vancouver newborn photographer – Aida Miri Photography – Baby James

Vancouver studio newborn photo session:

I loved working with baby J and his family. Big sister was such a sweet girl. She was very cooperative and helpful. I could see the love and care she had for her little brother in every little touch or kiss. I always enjoy getting both sleepy shots and open shots of newborns. It allows for a variety of beautiful images for the parents to remember these moments by. And baby J was such adorable with those big curious eyes. Enjoy this selection of my favourites. Send me an email for session info if you’re expecting soon and want to get memorable images of your baby’s journey.

 

 

Vancouver Maternity Photo Session – Stanley Park – Newborns by Aida

Aida Miri Photography maternity session in Stanley Park:

I feel so blessed to be able to capture parent’s love for their baby. First time parents are the cutest. The patience, the unconditional love and the excitement is so raw and real. These special moments will be frozen forever and your baby will cherish them so much when he/she grows up.

I love it when moms bring one outfit of their own to the photo shoot. They feel comfortable in their own style and it’s just amazing to capture.

Stanley Park is one of my favourite spots to photograph moms and families. We were very lucky with the beautiful summer sunshine. This mommy was very brave with getting in the water, and it was all worth it in the end. Here is a selection of our final shots.

Newborn Photo session Vancouver – Baby Ben

This photo session was perfect by all means. The parents were very relaxed and excited. Even though it was only 7 days after delivery and mom didn’t have the smoothest labour, they were happy to come to the studio and create these unforgettable memories. Baby Ben was one of the best babies I’ve photographed. He was very cooperative, slept almost through the whole session and we were able to get everything done sooner than usual!

 

I really want to emphasize the importance of doing a newborn session sooner than later. It might be difficult to get of the house that early, but when you see the results, it’s so much worth it. When you do the session in the first week or so, we are able to keep baby asleep for the most part. Babies are easier to pose when they’re sleeping, so the cute little poses that you’ve been saving on your Pintrest, we can take them only if baby is sleeping. Once they’re awake we can still get nice images with open eyes, but we might not be able to do most of the cute poses ( babies don’t like to stay on their belly, they move a lot, they like their hands in their mouth, etc.) The bigger and older the babies are, the more difficult to get them to pose the way we want for photos. I definitely recommend that if you are able to move around and get out of the house, book the session for the first week.

 

Here is some of our favourite shots from baby Ben with all his different expressions:

 

 

 

 

In-home Life Style Newborn Session – Baby J – Newborns by Aida

I just love doing in-home sessions! This gorgeous mom originally wanted to do a studio session but things got busy and we never set up a date for a newborn session. When she called me back after a month to do an in-home session I was very excited to be able to fit her in the schedule.

I explained how this session will be more like a life style session and it’s a perfect way to tell their family’s story. She was on board with my ideas. Baby J was 1 month old and doing the usual newborn posing would not be a great idea. So instead we worked around baby’s natural poses, bundling him, dressing him and placing him in his everyday environment. We got beautiful shots of baby and parents using natural light and the comfort of their home. Their two puppies were very fun to work with as well. The nursery didn’t have natural light so we ended up taking most of our shots in the parents’ bedroom. Baby J was very cooperative and I got to capture some memorable moments for his lovely family to cherish forever.

If your baby is more than 2 weeks old and you’d like to capture these moments without the hassle of forcing baby into poses that he/she is not comfortable in anymore, a life style session is your answer! You just have to make sure that your home gets lots of natural light. It’s best to consult with your photographer. Some time we think we get lots of light through our windows but it might not be an enough source for creating beautiful photographs.

I hope you enjoy these images. You can contact me for more info on in-home life style sessions.

 

Vancouver Newborn and Maternity Photographer – Baby Aria

I’m absolutely in love with this newborn session done at my home studio using natural light. Aria was such a sweet baby. She slept through out the whole session and looked adorable for all my shots. She was born a bit smaller than we expected so we had to wait for 2 weeks to get the photos done, but it was all worth it. She was a true angel with cute, chubby cheeks

Newborn photo session baby S – Vancouver

I had the honour of photographing this beautiful family with their newest addition to the family. They are very dear to me and spending time with this cute little girl in her second week in the world was just so rewarding. I hope you enjoy the photos. Baby S was perfect in her Newborn photo session.
