Congratulations on your upcoming addition! As you prepare for the welcoming of your child, plenty of expectant families do plan for a photoshoot to document this life changing moment in your story. These images will show your child how much they were loved even before coming into the world. For the best turnout, we recommend booking your maternity session between 28 and 36 weeks (7th or 8th month). During this time frame, the belly has a nice round shape and you should still be relatively comfortable for a session. Because we're working with limited timeframe, we would definitely encourage you to book early in order to secure your session for optimal results.

Although it may not show, Terence has been a photographer for the last decade, and thanks to his Asian genes, keeps looking young while he's at it, but he likely might be just Photoshopped anyway. With a background in studio work, Terence is masterful in helping his clients get comfortable in front the camera, whether it be babies or large groups of people. Focusing on genuine expressions and capturing memories, his skills have evolved since then to cover weddings, engagements and portraits, and he always carries the fundamental value that it is more important to click with the person than to click that shutter. When he's not behind a camera, Terence enjoys spending time with his wife on food adventures and forced hikes after recently getting married in July 2018. He also has a passion for personal electric vehicles (PEVs) and can be found riding the streets of Vancouver on his electric unicycle. Terence is also one of the official photographers for the graduation ceremonies of UBC, Douglas College, and Capilano University, and has led the official photography team for the BMO Vancouver Marathon, Rock n' Roll Marathon, , Granfondo Marathon races in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.
You're about to become a mother and you have been wanting to document this special time but just aren't sure where to go or who to choose as your photographer. You want someone who will make you feel comfortable and take care of all the details, someone who will make the session an enjoyable experience AND take great photos. Well, you've come to the right place! I'm here to give you an enjoyable experience out in nature, while also capturing images of you in this special time in a natural and beautiful way! Together we will take a walk through a natural outdoor location. We will find the most photogenic spots where I will help direct your poses or let you get creative and see what happens ;) Ultimately, you will walk away from purchasing this package with the memory of a fun walk through a park, making a new friend (me!), and 5 beautiful shots capturing your pregnancy in an authentic and natural way!
Life is short, time is fast, no rewind, no replay, so enjoy every moment as it comes. Motherhood is such a precious experience. As a photographer, it's my pledge to capture the beauty of this special moment. With each maternity session I shoot, I aim to preserve the moment exactly as it was: all its quirks and bursts of beauty. My camera has followed me everywhere for over nine years. My style as a photographer is to look for the little moments: when you're gazing into your loved one's eyes, or feeling your baby's little kicks and dreaming of all the wondrous years ahead. With me, you can rest assured that those priceless moments won't go missed -- and you'll be able to keep reliving them long after your little one has arrived and your family has grown.
