casey’s {modern glam} experience | vancouver glamour and maternity portrait studio

Casey found us through a contest we ran with Sex and the Suburb.  She won a runner up prize back in February and was so excited she booked right away.  Then she found out she was pregnant and wanted to postpone her {modern glam} experience until she had a nice little bump.  Fast forward 6 months and we had the pleasure of having Casey and Mitch in.  These two are SO in love and can’t wait to meet their newest family member.

Here is Casey’s {modern glam} experience in her own words:

I’d like to share a special experience with everyone that I feel very fortunate to have had. After booking a photo shoot with phoTobin I was extremely excited. Being 6 months pregnant, you don’t get out much let alone feel sexy, or look much better than mascara and hair thrown up in a messy pony tail for the most part. For me, applying makeup or doing nice hair were never a strength of mine so getting dolled up is an extremely rare occurrence for me.

When it came to that magical day, I had become very nervous. Yes I was going to get all glammed up but did I know what I was doing?  Would I be able to take a picture without a double chin or grinning funny (thoughts that crossed through my mind all morning) Fortunately, after about 5 mins of meeting Sarah and Tobin I chucked all of those thoughts out the door. These two could not have been more warm and welcoming and downright comfortable to be around.

We started with my “before shot” which is a brilliant idea because it is so nice to see how much you can evolve. Next we went through my outfits that I brought, and then Sarah turned this no makeup, pony tailed mom-to-be into a beauty queen. Confidence level rose about 100%.

As Sarah was making me up, Tobin was setting up the shoot, mapping out in so much detail, what I was going to wear, how I was going to pose, what back drops or props were needed. He had so many great ideas; it was like creative genius at work. You can tell Tobin puts so much thought into his work, that everyone’s photo shoots are designed specifically for them, not everyone is going to have the exact same experience and photos.  Basically all I did was show up, literally, and the professionals took over.

When it was time to shoot, he guided me and gave me great tips on how to take the best photograph. It was so smooth and comfortable and I had Sarah at my side helping with the minor details making sure there were no wardrobe malfunctions and that everything was perfectly in place.

Getting to know them, the whole time, seeing this couple and how happily in love they were, it made them the best team I could imagine. They really know how to capture a moment. I took a few pictures with my other half, and I don’t know how they did it but I could just feel the love pouring out of these pictures.

They captured some really precious moments for me. I would definitely recommend them to everyone. Like I said, all I had to do was show up and they did all of the rest. I felt like I had such a high when I walked out of the studio at the end of the day, I felt like a million bucks. Not only did I have a blast but my boyfriend did as well. For a guy who bores easily, I couldn’t believe how into this he was. He and  I would definitely love to do this again.
