Newborn Family Photographer — Golden, B.C.

Pamela, Cole & Logan

There were several wonderful things about this session and I wish they could all be this soulful and honest.

It was an early smoky morning in Golden B.C. when I showed up to photograph Pamela, Cole, and their six-week old baby, Logan. They are originally from Golden and came home to visit their parents and escape the city for a few days. Pamela and I are old friends since elementary school and it was special to reconnect over a photography session.

Pamela and Cole didn’t say if they felt like natural parents, but the way they moved and watched their baby it would seem so. The two of them worked together as a team in a constant sway of snuggling, changing, and feeding little Logan. There were a few moments where the new parents snuck in a quick kiss or hand-hold in between tending to their little one. Everything about Pamela, Cole, and Logan was very real.

There were no apologies for his tears or fussy moments, there didn’t need to be. These are moments that come and go and you never know when the last time you soothe your little baby will be. My heart swells knowing that Logan is going to grow every day and that Pamela and Cole now have their beautiful memories documented forever and ever.

For part of their newborn family photography session, Pamela and Cole held their baby in the same spot that they exchanged vows last Summer. I told them to take a moment to really sink into this moment of holding Logan where, only a short time ago, they were committing to becoming a family. The three of them seemed to melt together and hold each other as they thought of where they were at this point in their lives. It might be a year before they come back to this place and Logan will be running around the yard exploring instead of sleeping squished between his parents.

“We can’t wait to see the photos because we feel like we don’t remember everything…”

This is something a couple actually said to me earlier this month.

After each photo session, once every photo is enhanced and perfected, I put them all together in a beautiful slideshow to show them to my clients for the first time. It is always an emotional event, full of happy tears and many thanks. Delivering photos is one of the best parts of my job.

A few weeks ago, as I sat down in their home to set up the slideshow, the couple confessed that they were very eager to see the photos because everything went by so quickly that they felt like it didn’t even happen. Obviously, they know it did happen, but the brain can play tricks on you sometimes during a big event and memories can become blurred. It has happened to me before, as I am sure it has happened to you.

“The day just went by so quickly after we spent so long planning for it. It felt like everything was over in an instant.”

Since meeting with this family, other parents have shared this feeling as well. They felt like the day was never going to come and then all of a sudden it was here and gone. Suddenly you have this child you are responsible for and can barely remember them arriving. Photographs are a powerful tool that can ground you and bring you back to an event. It is a very special thing if you have a photograph to help you remember one of your biggest life events.

As they watched their slideshow, there were happy tears and laughs throughout the whole thing. There were many moments of ‘I forgot that even happened’ and ‘I am so glad we can look at this memory forever’. We designed a book for them to relive their special day and show it to their friends, then they picked their favourite image for a large framed print to look at every day.

As a Photographer, I see this happen all the time. I work with couples who are so thankful that somebody pushed them to get photos done, even though they were busy. I work with parents who save up for photos because they know how quickly their baby will grow. Everyone loves to relive their memories and I feel so lucky that it’s my job to help people save them. Once that image gets printed and hung up on the wall, it’s always worth it.

Have you ever been so in the moment for an event that you have a hard time remembering it after? I would love to hear your stories and experiences, please share below!
