Newborns by Aida – Jaana’s Birthday Session – Jericho Beach Park

As a photographer you have to always be prepared, to improvise. Some shoots just don’t go the way you’ve planned and you have to always be ready to make the best of what you are presented with.

I definitely had to challenge myself during this birthday shoot we had with this lovely family. We were all very excited and we had spent so much time planning and organizing and deciding on the right time for the perfect golden hour. But things don’t always go according to plan! Do they? We had to start the session later than we had planned and the perfect light was gone. So I had to be really quick with everything, we were running to different sections of the park, fixing the cake, carrying the balloons and figuring out the right camera settings and positioning of the subjects.

But Jaana was the sweetest little girl and when you have a model who cooperates perfectly you just forget about all the difficulties and focus on her. My goal was to produce memorable photos for the family so that they can cherish Jaana’s 2nd birthday forever no matter what the circumstances were. And with everyones’s help we could achieve that.

We all had a good time and photos turned out great!

Looking forward to photographing her for her next birthday.

Newborns by Aida – Newborn Session for Baby Rose

Baby Rose was a true angel! This newborn session was very special to me. I first met the parents last year when I was the second photographer at their wedding. They were a gorgeous couple and their wedding was a fantastic day. When I realized she was pregnant with a baby girl I was very excited to see her again after a year. We had a great date at the park on a lovely sunny day. We chatted and caught up as I took her maternity photos ( those require a separate blog post! ) I could not wait to meet this little girl of theirs, and the day I did meet her was a very emotional day for me. It is very rewarding to be a part of such a great journey as a photographer. To witness the magical love of this couple flourish into a little, cute angel named Rose is all I could ask for. When mom asked to bring her wedding gown to include in the newborn photos I agreed without hesitation. It was a brilliant idea and the result was the most beautiful thing.

I feel truly blessed to be able to be a part of different stages of my clients’ life and achievements by being a versatile photographer. I can’t wait to have baby Rose back in the studio for her 1 year birthday!

Newborns by Aida – Maternity Session in White Rock

This was the perfect maternity session! Mom to be was very excited and took every one of my suggestions to the next level. She wanted to make the outfits herself and we were both worried about them turning out, but the result was perfect! Can you believe she made these gowns herself?! With her great sense of style she added matching accessories to each look. I mean who needs a stylist when your model is this good!

The weather was great and both mom and dad (to be) were full of new ideas and open to trying different locations. This was my first time shooting in White Rock, and I’m definitely going back.

Winter Bloom

 

It was a cold, foggy January day, but no rain! So we got together with this gorgeous girl and did this quick winter shoot. This is as close as we got to snow this year in Vancouver.

Wool, lamb and wilderness

 

I have been meaning to do this post for a while now. This editorial shoot dates back to the spring of this year when Sara Gheydy had just finished her final pieces for Blanche Macdonald’s Spring 2015 graduate show. I am so glad I got to be a part of her amazing journey and see her designs flourish from the initial sketches to the final garments. Here is a little bit about Sara’s ideas behind the creative process in her own words.

“My inspiration came from the Middle East, with a focus on Iran. In the south of Iran, they use Mongolian Lamb’s wool in clothing and hats. I centered my collection around this material, imagining and playing with design elements to highlight the wool during my time sketching. I am attracted to fabric; I always buy my fabric first, and my process is then inspired by the chosen  material. ”
