Casual Maternity Photoshoot-Pitt-Meadows

put your mind at ease.
this is what you need to know:

it's an easy-going photography experience

There's no pressure to have a Pinterest ready home or a perfect dress. 

you are perfect

just the way you are

A maternity portrait session is 100% guided by your comfort. Want to wear a flowing gown? Want to wear a bra and jeans? That's up to you. You and I will work together to plan your session to ensure you get the portraits you've been dreaming of. I'm here for you.

not your first rodeo?
is this baby number 2, 3 or 4?

  1. I will take time at the beginning to build rapport with your toddler before taking photos. They usually enjoy the experience more when it's 'their friend' taking the pictures!

  2. Sibling and family photos happen right at the start because the sibling may lose interest in taking photos quickly! Toddler attention spans are about as big as they are ;)

  3. Have no major expectations for toddlers and never force them into doing anything they aren't comfortable with. 

  4. Prepare your kiddo(s) for your photo shoot by telling them that a friend is coming to visit and take some pictures of your family.

  5. Pro-tip for toddlers: share my social media with them. If they know my face they are more likely to warm up faster than if they didn't know me at all!

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.
