He is lucky enough to have an older brother named Lucas! My eldest son is also Lucas, so there was some comical exchange there between the two of them!! They played together while I did some work with Greyson and his Mommy. 

I went into this session with some trepidation, as he was already 4 weeks old at the time of his session (Most of you already know that for sleepy babies its best to be done between 5-10 days.) I prepared his parents that we might not be able to get too many sleepy shots, but I was absolutely amazed at how well he behaved! And he had GORGEOUS skin. I was a little jealous!

Also, I just purchased a new logo design, and I am eagerly awaiting the results! I'm looking forwards to an overhaul of my site to go with the new logo and create my own brand!

Beautiful Baby Boy Twins- ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2014/3/beautiful-baby-boy-twins--abbotsford-newborn-photographer Good Morning!

Back in February I had posted a model call looking for twins, as I'm currently working on my PPOC application specializing in newborn photography. It requires 10 unique images of newborns, and it requires two twin images! I was so happy when Raelene volunteered her boys, Greyson and Kale. They were exceptionally well behaved. Like these boys woke up to nurse, and went back to sleep, the end. I've never seen anything like it. It was a pleasure to photograph them and their beautiful Momma.

Valerie-Rose Newborn Session- ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2014/2/valerie-rose-newborn-session--abbotsford-newborn-photographer Hello Internet,

For every newborn session I do, I always try to personalize and custom tailor the session to each family's tastes. I have done Canucks setups, very girly glam setups and now a saddle setup. This little girl's mom is a cowgirl at heart. Her family keeps horses at their home. She was such a good girl, but she had to come back for a second visit specifically to get the saddle shot. She wasn't sleeping deep enough for me to safely put her on the prop on the first day. It is a composite image, her safety is always the most important thing.

Here's some images from our special time together:

Bowen's Cake Smash Session - ABBOTSFORD BABY PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2014/1/bowens-cake-smash-session---abbotsford-baby-photographer I have had a busy weekend with baby showers and cake smashes and haven't had much of a chance to prepare a blog for tonight.

I'm going to show the growth of one of my best friend's sons, Bowen. I will do a more in depth blog about your cake smash session once I'm done editing through his photos.

I have seen him for all his milestone sessions: newborn, six months, and then yesterday his one year birthday cake smash. He's sooo cute! You can tell her really loved his cake from Creative Cake-A-Tiers.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOWEN!

Meet Miss Avery-

She was such a lovely girl. I know every parent wants to hear that their baby should be a model, but this little girl really should be. She was a little Zoolander baby. She had the best hair and the blue steel look down pat.

Bree's Newborn Session -ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2014/1/brees-newborn-session--abbotsford-newborn-photographer As I continue to get caught up blogging on my newborn sessions, we have reached Miss Bree. I saw her mom Christina for her maternity session back in October.  In the start of our session, Miss Bree was so perfect, we had her in the wire crate. Once we finished up that prop shot and tried to position her on the beanbag, she made the decision to not sleep. After lots and lots of work, we got her back to sleep and did some Christmas themed shots for her mom's Christmas cards. We were able to squeak in a few shots at the end on the Red colored drop, as it was a special request from mom to match her nursery.

As I am continuing to get caught up on the blogs, here is a session from December with the Lovely Miss Lucy, and her sister Stella. We did a few Christmas shots, since it was December after all, and then a few sibling poses along with the rest of the regular newborn session. This is Danielle's daughter, do you remember her from her maternity session? She's one hot momma!

Here's some pictures from our session:

More Blog Catching Up - ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2014/1/more-blog-catching-up---abbotsford-newborn-photographer Well here I am finally getting these blog posts done. Better late than never! This entry is about a beautiful baby boy named Dominic. He is the first child of our very close family friends. He was SO tiny, born at an astounding 5lbs 2oz. I think he may have been the smallest baby I have worked with! He had such wonderful white milky skin! 

I am going to be doing a photography project for myself, taking a photo of my newest born son once a month, for each month. I will also be doing that with Mr Dominic, since I will be seeing him at least once a month anyway! I have already taken a few shots from the 1 month session, but I will blog those when I get caught up!

Here are some pictures form our time together at his newborn session:

My First Twins Session - SURREY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2014/1/my-first-twins-session---surrey-newborn-photographer I put out a casting call back in November looking for some twins! I had 3 responses, and this is the first set that I shot. Two beautiful baby girls named Avery and Brooklyn. (A and B, I see what you did there mom) The session was a LOT of work, but so worth it. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and my hubby came as my assistant. (I figured I would need all the help I could get.) 

This session was shot back in November before I had my most recent son, Elijah. I am approx 6 blog posts behind, but I'm working on getting caught up now. Thanks for your patience!!

Here are some images from the twins session:

So, until next time,

Danielle's Maternity Session - LANGLEY MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2013/11/danielles-maternity-session---langley-maternity-photographer Hey Everyone,

I had the pleasure of photographing one of my former bosses in her beautiful pregnant state. I have known her for about five years. This is her second child, another girl! She's so lucky! Although I think her daughter is also very lucky, since Danielle is a fashonista, and always makes sure everything is looking beautiful. This girl wears insanely high heels even though she is 9 months pregnant. She employs her style on her daughter, who is always looking glam. I look forwards to doing some sibling pictures of Stella with her new baby sister! I'm looking forwards to taking Danielle's personal style and translating it into her newborn photos come December. Here's some images from Danielle and I's time together:

DIY Maternity Dress http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2013/11/diy-maternity-dress Hello Everyone!

I recently tried my hand at making a maternity dress and thought I would share the tutorial with anyone who wanted to know how to make one for themselves. I plan on making a variation of this out of stretchy lace in the next few weeks.

Here's a few pics of it in use:

As far as materials go, I used approx. 4 meters of white chiffon fabric I picked up at a local fabric store. And some white thread. That's about it!

Firstly, I cut two lengths of chiffon to make the bottom of the dress that hangs over the belly. I made them just over 1 meter long, to me it doesn't matter if the material pools on the floor and I wanted it to be versatile so I could use it on all heights of women. Then, I ran a lose running stitch along the top of one length, pulling at the end to make it gather at the top. I did this to each piece.

Then I took 1.5 meters of fabric and folded it into a tube (in half twice so it wasn't see through but was wide enough to cover the breast area.) Make sure this is big enough to cover momma's chest (which is usually larger during pregnancy.) I pinned the unfinished edges together and ran it through the sewing machine. 

Then I hand stitched down the center of the top piece loosely and pulled it so it bunched up to make a sweetheart neckline. 

Next, I pinned the two bottom pieces to the top, starting in the middle section, so that the fabric can part to show momma's tummy is desired. I hand stitched these pieces together (my sewing machine is old and i was worried about it having issues bunching and whatnot.)

You now have the barebones of the dress. I left the ends of the top unfinished so that it ties up in the back to make it adjustable. 

 

Now You can leave it like this, but i found that it made the chest area too flat for my taste. I cut another piece of chiffon slightly wider than the chest panel and hand stitched in a twist in the middle.

I also hand stitched under the armpit area of both sides to give it volume. I just tie this part over the chest if I feel it needs it.

Here's the chest area with the piece on top:

Hope this helps! 

If you tried to make this, I would LOVE to see your pictures!!

Thanks for reading.

Kim.

This is her second child, and first girl. Her son Chris is very excited to meet his new sister, and will be joining us in studio for her newborn session. Christina was amazing to photograph and let me do any setup I desired. By the end of the shoot we were both pretty pooped. Christina and I are due the same week.

Mike and Tamara's Save the Dates- LANGLEY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2013/10/mike-and-tamaras-dave-the-dates This is a more personal post for me, as I did a Save the Date session for my long time family friend Michael and his beautiful fiancee Tamara. I have known Michael since I was brought home from the hospital, so he is like my brother. I had the honor of taking the photos for their Save the Date cards, which I felt privileged that he asked me, since Michael himself is a photographer. He specializes in automotive and aviation photography. You can check out his work at Michael Wimmer Photography.  http://michaelwimmerphotography.com/

Hope you can forgive me =) I had a wonderful time shooting a return client Mandy's daughter Hannah's 8 month old session. I saw her when she was still in her mommy's tummy, and then again when she was a newborn. Its so fascinating to watch her grow into the beautiful little girl she is now. Here's come collages from our session. I'm trying out a new blog format so we will see how it goes.

They are expecting their son in December, the same week that my husband and I are due with our next baby boy. I'm sure they will be very close friends growing up. Here's some pictures from our session together at Redwoods Golf Course, where they had their wedding. It was very appropriate and romantic to use the same location.

Until next time,

Glamour 2.0 with Miss Haylee http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2013/9/glamour-2-0 This glamour session went fabulously! The beautiful Miss Haylee was in my studio last Friday and I must say, she was a knockout! We had some delicious Indian food for supper, and then spent the rest of the evening shooting. Her pictures turned out great, and I think we are both very proud of the finished product. I recently purchased the course by Sue Bryce from Creative live, and I was feeling very inspired for this session. Unfortunately for me, there were too many good images to choose from. So, for the time being I have edited 15 for her, and I will continue to work on the rest when time allows. 

Here's a collage of a few of my favorites:

 

 

I have an outdoor maternity session that I have just begun to edit for Josh and Kate. They are looking fantastic so far and I cant wait to get a look at the rest.  Also, today I have the lovely Miss Mikayla coming into my studio for another glamour session. She has a great sense of humor so I'm sure it will be a blast. I just hope I can get her huge personality into the photos! 

Until next time,

Kim.

A Country Wedding Affair... http://www.kimgimsonphotography.com/blog/2013/8/a-country-wedding-affair These pictures are from Nikki and Jordan's wedding in July. We had a great time at the event, in beautiful Oliver, BC. From desserts in mason jars, to antler decorations and burlap lined tables, it was a country themed affair. This is an album post for my family to see the memories we captured while we were there.  Please feel free to share the link with anyone who was there, and if anyone would like copies, please contact me.

And they lived happily ever after...

Until next time,

Kim.
