Maternity portraits are a fabulous way to capture your changing body as you await the arrival of the new addition to your family. Pregnancy is not always glamorous but my job as your Kelowna maternity photographer is to make you look and feel amazing.
Maternity sessions typically take place around 30 to 34 weeks; however, I am happy to document your pregnancy at the time that you feel the most comfortable. The timing of the session is dependent on when you feel your best.
Every maternity session with Amanda V Photography lasts approximately one hour in the studio or at a location of your choice within Kelowna. A selection of maternity gowns are available for you to use if you wish. Your partner and children are welcome to attend this session.
Becoming a parent is truly the most important and rewarding job you will ever have. As much as we hope our babies will stay little forever, they grow up in the blink of an eye. Those first few weeks become a fleeting memory, but as your Kelowna newborn photographer I will help you remember the pure innocence of your brand new baby with heirloom prints and products that you will treasure forever.
Newborn sessions are usually scheduled during the first two weeks of your newborn’s life. The session will take approximately 2-3 hours at my in-home studio in Kelowna. Everything you need for your session is provided; bring your sweet baby and relax.
Parent and sibling images are encouraged. The newborn session is focused on the baby, but the connection between parents and siblings is important to photograph as well.
These sessions are a perfect way to document the milestones that happen in your baby's first year of life. Every baby hits milestones at different times throughout their first year so book a session for your baby at any time you want to capture their sweet personality. There are a few outfits in the Kelowna studio that are available for your baby to use for the session.
Every milestone session is approximately 45 minutes to one hour in studio or at a location of your choice within Kelowna. This is a great opportunity to capture the essence of your baby - chunky rolls, bare bums, toothy grins.

Why am i a newborn photographer?
When I was younger and my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I told her I wanted to be a mom. Fast forward a bunch of years and my husband and I were ready to have a baby! Sounds simple, but it wasn't. Month after month of negative pregnancy tests and we decided to seek help from a fertility specialist in Kelowna. We were diagnosed as having unexplained infertility, with less than a 5% chance of conceiving. I was heartbroken, afraid I would never be a mom, afraid that I would not get to be the one thing I wanted most in the world. Thankfully, after many tests, procedures, and a lot of time we finally became parents. We now have two beautiful children who are the biggest joys in our lives.
The love a parent has for a child is more than can be put into words. We are lucky to be parents. Some people, unfortunately, do not get the chance. My journey through infertility has helped shape me into the person I am today, and my heart lies with the love a parent has for a brand new baby.
From your beautiful belly to your newborn’s tiny fingers and toes to your little one’s cheeky grins, I will help you remember these special moments in your life.
As a full service boutique photography studio in Kelowna, my goal is to ensure you have an amazing experience and to turn your story of images into heirloom quality prints and products that will be treasured for a lifetime.
