A note from Jen

 

Hi and welcome! My name is Jen and I love babies. I mean, don't we all?

But let me explain...

Growing up, my friends' bedroom walls were covered in posters of teen idols, the latest boy band with acid-washed jeans and matching jackets ... typical right? 

My bedroom looked a bit different. Adorned with Anne Geddes baby artwork; photos of babies in little planter pots and asleep on the neck of a guitar. Back then, I just LOVED the beauty of tiny newborns and Anne Geddes was at the height of her career. It wasn't a thought in my mind that one day I might be able to create that kind of photo art myself because back then, the typical "newborn picture" was just a mug shot in the bassinet at the hospital the day you were born. It wasn't a niche of professional photography for the every day family yet. So I took every opportunity I had to hold babies, and fulfilled my creative side with a career as a Graphic Designer for many years after university.

But then, I became a mom.

And right in front of me, I had this tiny subject - my own beautiful baby and I wanted to capture every moment. This was 2004 and it would be still 5 years of practicing with my babies and friends' babies, really learning everything there was to know about the art of newborn and maternity photography before I took the plunge and started to make a living at something I loved. 

And Eyeris Photography was born in 2008.

Documenting the fresh faces of little ones and those milestone moments in child's life, I feel honoured to provide timeless portraits for parents as they grow their families. I meet the most wonderful families! Another big perk of this job is getting to know all of you. 

I have been fortunate enough to photograph now over 1200 babies and children in Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. No two sessions are the same, just as no two children are, even twins! Based out of my Langley home studio, I come to you with expertise, a passion for photography and the ability to create fine art by capturing the unique beauty in every child I photograph. 

I look forward to meeting and working with you!
