This sweet girl was one of the cutest babies Ive ever photographed. Not only is her hair magnificent, she was  a dream to photograph sleep wise. Mama requested yellow, which is my absolute FAV to use these days. Maybes it’s the lack of sunshine this winter is producing. Either way, I hope for more yellow requests AND sunnier days.

Take a look at sweet baby girl and all her perfection<3

I think my favourite thing about this session is the fact that we have two sets of images, that look completely different, yet shot in the same day. The casual fun loving images of the two of them together really allow them to be themselves, showcasing their love for each other. Then we also have the maternity prop dress in use, creating what I think, looks like some type of enchanted ice queen gloriousness.  The snow, the fog, the dress. Love!

It was my absolute pleasure to meet and photograph Chilliwack’s first baby born in 2018! She is the sweetest girl, and has THE BEST lips and cheeks ever.   While we still used pink and neutral tones for her session, I was super excited to use yellow. I wanted to show people how gorgeous it looks in images. I think a lot of people tend to gravitate towards those neutral tones or the classic pink and blue. While those are nice, its always nice  to switch it up a bit.  What do you guys think?

You know the saying “save the best for last”? Well that could not ring more true with this session. Taking place on new years eve of 2017 I could not have wished for a better baby to photograph or clients to meet.

So many amazing things could be said about these guys, and their sweet girl. Instead of rambling I’ll let the images do the talking.

So nice meeting you Nico and Jenessa, your girl is seriously perfection, and so lucky to have you for parents<3

One of my 2018 business goals was to try and blog more. So lets get started with my first entry of 2018! Sweet Baby B!

I know I say this a lot but seriously this sweet girl is pretty much perfection!  She wasn’t overly into sleeping for her session, but we were able to get enough to fill a gallery with a great variety of awake and sleepy shots. Mom loves pink, and I think it compliments her milky soft skin tone perfectly.

I really did want to just snuggle this sweet girl the entire session. Its the hard part of this job… all work no snuggle. JK I always sneak in a snuggle or two …or three ha!

Is there really anything more adorable than a baby with a full head of hair? Its my absolute favourite.   Check out a few of my favourite shots from sweet A’s newborn session <3

While I love BC for its beauty, the weather can sometimes make it difficult to get outside for sessions. I like to keep my images simple and timeless without a lot of add on props or crazy colours. That being said, I came up with this simple bright airy setup for indoor intimate maternity sessions.  Yay for staying warm, and still having gorgeous images <3

Nicole and Bryce were a delight to photograph. If I had an award for most beautiful couple of 2017, they would surely win haha I can’t wait to meet their sweet girl in the coming weeks <3

Oh hey! Remember me!? Ya, I am the photographer that used to blog each session. Then I ended up getting behind  (only like… 7 or 8 sessions, no biggie *gulp*) and well.. I feel non existent in here! Disappointing because I love writing on my blog/website! I think its important for people that may not know me to get a better idea of who I am as a person, and not just a photographer.  If you don’t already,  follow me on instagram! @melissahopfnerphotography . Im pretty active on there, and I try and post behind the scenes stuff, and well.. me just being me. (insert oh oh face here)

Anyways, lets get to the good stuff. Sweet Scarlett <3  Sending this gallery off tonight, and honestly, I’m going to miss editing this adorable little face.
