Family and Personal Photography
Serving Vancouver and the Lower Mainland

Angela's interaction with your child and family prior to each session helps create a relaxed and comfortable environment.

This way the pictures capture your child's personality, emotion and spirit. Angela avoids forced poses, seeking, instead, natural every day expressions.

To enhance the outcome of the photo session you may choose an environment that is more welcoming for your child and family (ie. your home, a park or at the beach).

Family photo sessions follow Angela's same philosophy. She understands the importance of capturing the natural family dynamic without losing the individual's importance within that family.

Sessions are not timed and can last anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours, depending on the mood of the child or family interactions.

Angela sticks to a "no limit" with the number of photographs taken, ensuring that you get that 'perfect' picture. All photos include editing and retouching as required. Black and White, Sepia and Splash imaging is included at no extra charge.

 

 

Capturing Childhood Magic

WHAT AGE:
When exactly to bring your baby is a personal choice as each stage in a child's development has its own special magic. At two weeks old you get that very newborn look which fades at around week 4, and by week 12 the smiles are very plentiful.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR BABY:
Ideally, your baby should have a sleep and a feed just before coming. There is time in the shoot for a feed, so please don't disturb your baby's sleep to feed before coming.

WHAT TO WEAR:
Black clothes for both parents (no logos or badge-type buttons).
Plain, solid-colour clothing for the child (You want the child to stand out; not the clothing).
Bring a couple of changes of clothing.
Soothers, nuks, diapers and a bottle (as necessary).

BOOKING DEPOSIT:
When you book your appointment, we will require a 30 percent booking deposit. There are different packages to choose from, so please give Angela a call and book your appointment today!

 

 

Children's Clothing Tips

Strong primary colours or contrasting black and white colours are NOT good as they tend to overpower the focus on the child's face. As a rule of thumb, put light colours together and darks together. Midtones can go with either light or dark. Patterns are fine if they are very subdued. A strong pattern competes with your child for attention. Avoid bold stripes, plaids and big emblems or designs. Shoes are optional. In most cases, bare feet are preferable.

Family Photo Session Clothing Tips

Decide on a formal or casual look, then choose the wardrobe accordingly. Solid colour long-sleeve tops and long pants work best. Dressing identically works, but is not necessary. If you choose light tops, then everyone should be wearing light tops. If you choose dark pants, then everyone should wear dark pants. The very best wardrobe choices seem to be single tones for both tops and bottoms. Avoid bright colours such as bright white and avoid logos and bold patterns. Light clothes look better on light backgrounds and vice versa. For variety you can bring both light and dark clothing depending on the backgrounds we go with. Make sure clothing is not wrinkled. Wear clothing you feel good in and flatter you.
