learn about the process

I count it an honour to photograph the seasons of life, delivering photos and heirlooms that will forever live in the homes of my clients and their families. If you feel drawn to my work, please contact me about packages and portrait sessions, and tell me a bit about yourself. I would love to meet you. 

I believe that timeless photos begin with meaningful relationships and trust, and I’m deeply committed to ensuring that my clients feel relaxed, at ease, and happy throughout every aspect of our shoot.

why choose me?

the details

As part of a typical photo session, you can expect to receive a custom edited gallery. I like to provide you a variety of lifestyle shots as well as moderately posed shots where I coach you into various positions that create beautiful works of art. I don’t like to "over pose" though and believe that even with direction, the client needs to be comfortable or it shows, and it truly is my goal for your gallery to be unique and filled with absolutely beautiful heirlooms.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I’d love to learn more about you and how I can help you capture those special moments that will last a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our commercial studio is located in South Surrey, BC in Campbell Heights Business Park.

Phone Number: 604-862-2145

Mini Newborn: approx 1.5 hrs. please allow extra time if adding on parent/sibling/family poses.
Full Newborn: approx. 3 hrs
Should your baby need to take a break for feeding or for extra cuddles then a session can go as long as 3.5 - 4 hours. 

Newborn sessions are ideally done at 6-14 days of age (unless there is a medical reason to delay the session). We want baby to safely able to squish into those adorable poses while fast asleep. Sessions can be done past two weeks with the expectation that baby may be more alert. I believe beautiful images can be created at any age. So I will gladly accept newborns past 15 days old.

The first trimester is ideal. I have a set amount of spots on my calendar each month for newborns. The only way to guarantee a spot on my calendar is to pay your deposit early.

I basically reserve your due date (with a $100 deposit) and that guarantees you a session when baby is born. I only reserve a certain amount of due dates a month as we don’t know when these little babies decide to arrive and that way I allow enough availability in my schedule for you to choose from. If you wait until after baby is born to book your session I most likely won’t have availability.

I recommend booking 6-8 weeks in advance to ensure you get the date requested. Especially if you are wanting a weekend date. As I only book on Saturdays. Sundays are spent with my family.

I will email you a newborn session guide once your deposit is paid. It will detail everything you need to know as far as what to bring and what to wear.

I have a vast collection of gorgeous knit bonnets, hats & wraps in an array of colours. Beautiful, dainty headbands & custom newborn outfits.
The only thing you need to bring is your beautiful baby.
The studio is kept very warm to create a comforting atmosphere to keep baby relaxed & content. I recommend bringing a light shirt or tank top to change into after the family photos are taken.

Please bring a water bottle & snack. As the sessions can be long.
I do have water and snacks on hand if needed.

If you are within 20-30 drive to my studio please give baby a full feed right before you leave the house. If you have a further drive you will be able to feed baby when you arrive. The goal is to have baby in a deep sleep (milk drunk) This is best for being able to pose the baby.
Please keep baby awake as much as possible in the morning before your session. A bath usually helps with this. 

If you use a pacifier for your baby please bring it to the session.

Between 28 – 34 weeks along is a good time for a maternity photography. 

Try to book during your first trimester to secure your preferred date. Weekends will fill in advance.

Unfortunately, I do not provide Maternity dresses. I do recommend a gown rental company located in Cloverdale, BC (please inquire)

Please e-transfer your deposit to lindsay@violetrosephotography.ca

For payment: I accept e-transfer. Or in the studio: credit, debit & cash.

Newborn session: please allow 2-3 weeks 
 
All other sessions will be delivered within 2 weeks from your session date.
 
You will be emailed a private online gallery that you will be able to download to your desktop or mobile phone. You will be provided high resolution images for printing & web sized images.

Cancellations must be made at least 7 days in advance. Sessions can be re-scheduled up to 2 days in advance.

I recommend choosing outfits that compliment each other rather than matching. Try to choose a colour palette with a main colour and add 2 muted ones. For example: Main colour is blue paired with a soft blush pink & grey.

Please refrain from choosing any busy patterns or logos. As this can be very distracting and take away from the people in the photos. You may choose a pattern like florals or plaid. But choose only one person to wear the pattern. Everyone else should be in a solid colour.

You'll hear from me shortly.

thank you!
