Vancouver Baby Photography to seize those monumental milestones in your little one's first-year adventure!

Wondering when to capture more adorable moments of your baby after the newborn stage? It's a question we get a lot! We recommend three delightful stages – 100 days, sitter, and the big 1-year milestone.


Celebrate the remarkable 100 Days milestone, filled with adorable baby smiles, tummy time, and that irresistible full-of-expressions charm. Whether you missed the newborn session or not, this stage is a treasure trove of smiles and curious eyes, perfectly captured around the 4-month mark.


Sitter stage – the most inquisitive phase of your baby's first year. With the newfound ability to sit unsupported and perhaps start to explore crawling, this is when their curiosity and happiness take centre stage. Most babies absolutely love the attention during this period, ensuring we capture heartwarming and adorable images that you will cherish forever.


Brace yourself for the 1st Year milestone, captured around 10-12 months as your baby embarks on the adventure of cruising and walking. Consider adding a playful cake smash session, capturing the sheer joy of this momentous occasion. These are the memories that will fill your heart with warmth and your photo album with joy! Check out some of the adorable Cake Smash Themes.


Refusing to miss a single milestone? The Baby's First Year Bundle could be your perfect match! The exclusive bonus with this bundle is a one-of-a-kind book created solely for your precious little one (included at a $400 value).

Welcome to our Baby-Friendly Haven! Here, your little one will be enchanted by a world of delightful toys, a mini kitchen, and the most adorable stuffed animals. We have crafted an environment that feels more like a playground than a typical studio—because who wants a session that feels like a visit to the doctor's office?


Dress your baby in the cutest outfits in town! We not only provide adorable baby outfits for every milestone but also offer options for older siblings. Combining our baby wardrobe with your little one's own outfits gives you a delightful array of choices, ensuring your baby shines in every look.


Explore a Wonderland of Sets: Over the past decade, we have gathered an assortment of props and backdrops to offer a diverse range of looks for each of your baby's milestones. It is not just about variety; we love incorporating seasonal sets to add an extra touch of magic to each session. Every set is meticulously designed to make your images stand out; creating unique and flourishing memories. Check out some of the adorable Cake Smash Themes.


Meet Our Baby Whisperers: Our baby photographers are true experts, understanding the nuances of connecting with babies at every milestone. What works for a 4-month-old might not for a 1-year-old, and vice versa. Fear not! We have all the tricks up our sleeves to ensure your baby feels completely at ease and has a blast during the session, because capturing these precious moments should be as joyful as the moments themselves!

It depends on what you are looking for.

Imagine the sheer delight of capturing those precious milestones and crafting a lasting keepsake!

Beyond the adorable newborn stage, your baby's first year is sprinkled with three major milestones that are just begging to be captured! First up is the 100 Days session, happening around 4-5 months when your little one is mastering tummy time. Following that is the sitter session, typically around 7-9 months when your baby can sit unsupported. The grand finale is the cake smash or 1-year session around 10-12 months when your little explorer is standing and cruising around.

To ensure we capture these precious moments perfectly, we recommend booking your baby sessions about 1-2 months in advance.

Interested in capturing all three milestones? Dive into the Baby's 1st Year Bundle, packed with exciting perks!

After we craft the perfect session during our phone consultation, the next exciting phase is styling! A studio visit is the ideal opportunity to plan your session, explore outfit options from our adorable baby wardrobe, and dive into theme selections. While we offer a range of outfit choices, we also love it when clients bring their own personal touches if they have specific preferences.

Feel free to bring along items that bring comfort and joy to your baby – cherished toys, attention-grabbing toys with sounds, and anything else that keeps those smiles coming. And for those delightful cake smash sessions, don't forget to pack the cake smash outfit – it will get a bit messy!

Baby sessions are all about celebrating the whole family! Don't forget the importance of those sweet family photos and adorable sibling moments. Coordinating outfits in a harmonious tone is the secret sauce to capturing that perfect shot! Avoiding logos, characters, or super bold patterns is a good call – simplicity is the name of the game.

Moms, feel free to glam up your look with some of our fabulous maternity gowns, and we've got equally charming dresses for older siblings, from toddlers to 8 years old. Let's ensure everyone not only looks fantastic but feels comfortable too! It's all about making memories that shine, and a coordinated look adds that extra touch of magic.

We're delighted that you're such an amazing planner! Let's get this journey started with a phone consultation. Following that, a studio visit is the perfect next step to hash out all the exciting details of your session – themes, baby outfits, and even chat about the wonderful products that will hold those precious final images. This way, you won't find yourself in a panic just before the session.

And bring your adorable little one along for the studio visit! It's a great way for them to get familiar with the space, so come session day, our studio won't be a new and unfamiliar place. Let's make every step of this experience as comfortable and fun as possible!

Imagine a custom-made cake stealing the show, perfectly matching the theme you've chosen for those adorable cake smash moments. We work with talented cake makers who specialize in crafting cake smash cakes – these delights are not only delicious but also baby-safe, with no chemical coloring used.

Here's the cherry on top: we'll take care of ordering the cake for you, and it'll be ready and waiting at the studio on your session date. That means one less thing for you to juggle on a day when you're already managing a million things for the session.

However, we totally get it if you have a specific diet in mind for your little one or if you're keen on baking that 1st birthday cake yourself. Feel free to bring your homemade masterpiece along – after all, it's all about making this celebration uniquely yours!

Your investment's true worth isn't found in unfinished work. Raw and unedited files are akin to the uncooked, unused meat in a restaurant kitchen—seldom requested by customers. Just as your fine dining experience thrives on expert service and impeccably presented dishes delivering delectable flavors, your exceptional newborn photography experience hinges on superb service, meticulously crafted images with the final touch, and top-notch products that showcase those images in the best possible way. It's all about creating a memorable and delightful experience for you!

Our products aren't sourced from generic stores or online shops with unrealistically cheap deals—no London Drugs specials here! We've partnered with top-notch professional labs that collaborate with skilled photographers. If you're treating yourself to a luxury photography experience, it only makes sense to invest in products that truly complement the quality your images deserve.

While the digital images we provide can be printed up to 11x16, we strongly recommend ordering prints through us. It's a fantastic way to see your precious images come to life and truly shine on your walls. Let's make your space as beautiful as your memories!

It all kicks off with your phone consultation, where we dive into designing your session based on how you envision enjoying the images. Choosing the perfect products might involve a studio visit, giving you the chance to see and feel the products, letting you imagine how they'd complement your baby's photos. Don't worry; we're here to guide you every step of the way.

Had a change of heart after the session? No problem at all! Maybe you initially planned for an album, but after seeing that one standout image, you're now thinking of a large print for your baby's room. That's completely fine! The final tweaks to your chosen products happen after you've seen the final images. You can add, swap, or remove any products you originally had in mind, making sure everything is just perfect for you. Let's make it a seamless and enjoyable process!

After your session, we put our heart into carefully selecting and softly editing the images. You can expect to see your personalized gallery online within just a couple of days! From there, you've got about two weeks to make your selections. Quick tip: the sooner you dive into selecting, the more you'll feel the magic in those images, making the process even more enjoyable.

Once we receive your selections, it takes around 3 to 4 weeks for the final images to be ready. After the products are designed and finalized, we place the order, and usually, they arrive at our studio within 3 to 4 weeks. We'll then deliver the finished product right to your home, allowing you to relive the magic not just once but for years to come.

Feel free to reach out with any other questions! You can contact us through phone, email, or direct messages. Alternatively, jot down your questions and bring them up during the phone consultation. We're here to help!

Hear it from those who've experienced the magic!

Rachel is an amazing photographer! She's always so patient, organized and resourceful. The location is very convenient as its just a few minute drive from lonsdale quay and parking was reserved for us when we got there. The studio was clean and well supplied. There were so many cute outfit, we wish we could have had her wear all of them. We will definitely be coming back for other milestone professional photos.
I've had the pleasure of working with this studio 3 separate times now and each time was amazing. The last one was my daughter's smash cake photos session. There were so many cute photos taken that we had such a hard time narrowing them down to a few favorites! All in all, a fantastic studio to trust with all the most precious moments you wish to keep for a lifetime!
We did a newborn session with Rachel Yoon Photography and our positive experience led us to rebook our daughter's cake smash for her one year celebration. It was a pleasure to work with Vanessa. She kept our daughter happu and cheerful during the cake smash session. We highly recommend Rachel's studio. Thanks again for helping us create memories!
