Top 10 Family Photo Session Locations Around Port Coquitlam

Capture the beauty of life in your family photos with professional family photography in Port Coquitlam. I will help you capture the unique personalities and moments that make your family so special.   Capturing the phases of life from newborn to senior years, I will work with you to create stunning family portraits that will become cherished memories for generations to come.

I specialize in natural light, and candid photography and love to capture families in their everyday environments. I have many photo locations around Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, and the Tri-Cities, however, I am also available for studio sessions in Port Coquitlam if that is what you are looking for.

No matter where we take your photos, my goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed so that I can capture your true selves.   I want you to have fun and enjoy the experience!

It's a good idea to have a professional family photo session done every few years.   In fact, many of my clients book a session each year.  Photos make great gifts, or also can be used to make a family photo album or wall collage.

What to expect during a family photo session

When you book a family photo session with a professional photographer, you can expect a fun and relaxed experience. The photographer will work with you to capture natural and candid moments of your family interacting and spending time together. You may be asked to do some posed shots as well, but the focus will be on capturing your family’s personality and connection. 

What to wear for a family photo session

When it comes to what to wear for a family photo session, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you want to dress in clothing that is comfortable and that you feel good in. You also want to avoid clothes with busy patterns or logos, as these can be distracting in photos. Instead, opt for solid colours that will complement each other and help you all look cohesive. And finally, make sure everyone’s clothes fit well and are free of wrinkles or stains.

How to prepare for a family photo session

In addition to choosing the right clothes, there are a few other things you can do to prepare for your family photo session. First, make sure everyone’s had a snack and a drink so that nobody is cranky or Hangry (hungry + angry). You’ll also want to make sure everyone has used the restroom before the session starts. And finally, try to relax and have fun! The more fun you have, the better your photos will be. 

Why family photo sessions are important

Family photo sessions are important for a number of reasons. First, they capture a moment in time that you can look back on and cherish for years to come. They’re also a great way to document your family’s growth and changes over time. And finally, family photo sessions are a great opportunity to spend some quality time together as a family and create lasting memories.
