A few weeks back, Andrew Phung and his lovely wife Tamara sent an email asking if I was available to document their second son’s newborn lifestyle session. It’s always an honor to see how much a family has grown, especially their first son who likes to chatter away and run around pretending he’s Batman! Andrew is part of a successful comedy sitcom made in Canada, Kim’s Convenience (link to see it!). If you haven’t watched the sitcom, it’s about a Korean-Canadian family with hilarious moments dealing with the cultural generation gap between the parents and the kids. Growing up with immigrant parents myself, I was mentally checking off, “Yep, that’s what my parents would say, my Dad would do etc.”

Baby Mateo was almost night and day compared to his big brother’s newborn session (link here). Took awhile to rock him to asleep before we could get those cute sleeping shots. About 20 minutes later, he was wide awake and wanted to be free of the wrap! Ah well, you work with the baby’s schedule but none the less, I got what I wanted and moved on with the rest of the session.

There were so many images and I had a hard time narrowing down which highlights to showcase. Congratulations to the Phung family on the newest addition to their family!

Miss K was just 8 days fresh when she had her first photo session in my studio. She looked identical to her older sister when I photographed her 14 days new, almost 2.5 years ago. It’s amazing how big the older sister is now, and even her hair color has changed. When I photographed her older sister, she was wide awake 99% of the time, and she gave me a good run for my money to try and lull her to sleep. Miss K was very tired at the beginning, and we got some beautiful sleepy images. But soon Miss K, just like her older sister, woke up and gave me wide eyed looks the rest of the time.  Even though Miss K didn’t snooze through the entire three hours session, we got a variety of sleepy and wide eyed images.

Introducing Miss K to the world!

Another newborn baby girl arrived on the scene in early August in Calgary! Summer’s are always busy with wedding season but it’s always a refreshing change to photograph newborns in the mix.  Newborn sessions photographed at the studio with the curled up posey look, are generally held when newborns are five to ten days new.  As a result, the newborns retain their flexibility to stay curled up longer so it’s much easier manipulating them into different poses.

Baby K was four days fresh when she came to see me in the studio. Mom wanted a princess girly color theme since her nursery was airy, bright with pastel colors. Sorting through my collection, we decided pastel purple and a pink would be the predominant colors with accessories, such as headbands and tutus, to compliment the look. It was a refreshing change to bring out the girly colors because I’ve had a string of newborn baby boys!

Beautiful family photo of Baby K with her two older brothers and parents. She’s definitely going to be protected with two older brothers looking after her.

I’ve known the Steiner’s for over 15 years. I met Yen in University first, and then Ian when we all started dragon boating.  We’ve remained close friends over the years from playing a major role in each others weddings to family vacations together. I was honored when I was asked to photograph Alyssa’s first photo session.  I wasn’t able to photograph Alyssa right away, so at nearly 4 weeks old, she had her first photo session.  I thought it would be mostly lifestyle because older newborns don’t stay asleep for long and don’t like being curled up. But Alyssa was very much like a brand new baby, and snoozed through the entire session while I moved her around. No doubt it must be Yen’s love of sleeping that got passed down to her!

Congrats on another beautiful addition to your family! I look forward to seeing what kind of personality she will have as she gets older.

The newest addition to Jenn, Norm and Theo’s family is here! Introducing 8 days old little Jasper, and already he looks so different from his big brother who I photographed two years ago (link here). It’s amazing how fast he’s here already, when I felt like I just finished Jenn’s maternity session (link here) with all the pink blossoms.

I was hoping J would snooze the entire way like his big bro, but of course, that would make my job too easy 😉 With some snuggles, J eventually fell asleep and we got a variety of poses with different colors.  Perfect timing J woke up as big brother came back to pick him up, and I persuaded him to sit down next to the basket for a siblings shot.

Congrats on the newest addition to your family!
