Vancouver Maternity Session with Mylène & Dave

I was thrilled when Mylène asked me to be her doula and photographer! Both her and her husband Dave are world travellers. They’ve visited and lived in many different parts of the world but their journey together started in the beautiful city of Vancouver. For their maternity session, it was important to both Mylène and Dave that their love for Vancouver be evident in the photos. They wanted to have shots of places they frequent such as the Olympic Village, Gastown, Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park and finally sunset photos at English Bay. I was slightly nervous about this photo session initially because we had to move from one place to the next rather quickly to ensure that we reached English Bay on time for the sunset. This photo-shoot ended up being one of my favorite sessions thus far! I loved the thrill of having to move from one place to the next so quickly. I also enjoyed the dynamism of the session itself. The different lighting and landscapes put my skills and creativity to the test on a whole new level. I look forward to being present at their birth – not just as their doula but also their photographer.
