THESE WILL ALL BE MEMORIES SOMEDAY

Vancouver-Family-Photographer-Meliza-Orellana-Photography
But with photos, they can be memories your family will keep.

One day, as you carry your child to bed, you’ll pass your favourite portrait of them on the wall, and realize they’re twice as big as they were in the photo.

Your little one's favourite bedtime story is that beautiful, heirloom album you had made.  You flip through together at bedtime and you tell and re-tell the story about how their whole body fit into both of your hands, "just like this."

You deserve to have this time together captured in a special way.

HOLD ON TIGHT,

breathe in deep

When the hard part is over, when you get to hold a new little life in your arms, when the feelings are too big for words…

Your job is to just be here and soak it in.

Smell the top of their head.

Trace their perfect little button nose.

Feel how they fall into you.

There’s nowhere else you’re supposed to be.

My job is to freeze it in time and give it back to you, so you never have to let it go.

“Meliza’s casual approach really put us at ease. We were able to be ourselves and just enjoy spending time with our newborn while Meliza captured every moment. Truly the best photography experience we have had.

Jodi // Langley, BC

a note about families:

NO TWO ARE THE SAME

(and that’s a wonderful thing)

All types of families, and all identities, are welcome in front of my lensWhatever love looks or sounds like in your family, I want to photograph it 🌈

LET'S CAPTURE YOUR FIRST MEMORIES TOGETHER

In the place they mean the most - home

// where your arms are open for hugs

// where having a dance party in the living room is the best Saturday night you can imagine

// where sometimes the laundry and the dishes pile up, but that’s okay because parents are busy doing the most important job in the world

You don’t have to make your house look “Pinterest-worthy” to get beautiful pictures with your family.

I’ve got a process that makes getting beautiful photos feel easy.

HERE'S TO THE CUDDLES, THE CHAOS

and the love you share through it all

You don’t have to change a thing about your home or your family to be “photo ready”.

When you have a newborn, you’re on baby’s timeline, and that’s okay.
