Welcome Baby Justin :-) | Montreal Newborn Photographer

Let me start by saying that I don’t have children.  It’s not so much that I never wanted children it’s more that I am a complete sissy and the thought of childbirth scares the crap out of me.  Seriously, I need to lie down when I get a blood test and I have to take […]

OK, reading about this has made me wish you could have been there for all three of my babies births… what a beautiful story to capture in pictures, because it all goes by so fast…

What beautiful work Victoria! And it was very brave of you to be there. You put yourself in a totally new experience and captured the love of the moment, not the pain. Congratulations for being brave and taking a risk. It was worth it.

Désolée d’avoir pris autant de temps avant d’aller voir… mais wow, les photos sont tellement belles! J’en ai les yeux pleins d’eau, c’est tellement intense que ça me permet de ressentir les émotions de mes accouchements…beau travail Victoria….et Karine et Kam aussi!!

What a beautiful gift you have given this family. I am honored you were inspired by my work. The moments I have been present at a birth are some of the best moments of my life. No words really do the experience justice…that’s why your images are so powerful. Great work.

A great photojournalistic story.

Stephane Brazeau - November 26, 2010 - 7:35 am

Superb story Vic! The images you got there are quite impressive. I really like how you were able to capture those key moments that many parents don’t necessarily see while giving birth.

On a technical side, you BW process rocks!

Amazing pictures! I kinda wish I had known you when my #3 was born. I aadore the one of Kam holding Karine’s hand… beautiful!

Debby - November 26, 2010 - 5:52 am

Victoria, these pictures are all great! The couple will have a wonderful set of pictures to remember the birth of their son with. Great job!!

Melissa - November 26, 2010 - 12:56 am

Being a mom of two, these pictures make me remember my own labours with my boys and I wish… I WISH.. I had you in the room to document them like this. All the photos of this journey are spectacular but my absolute favorite was the shot of Karine and Kam’s feet. It’s such an expressive shot and you can just tell there is a pause for contraction… and I sooooo remember THAT part! I’m sure these pics will be treasured by the family forever!

Motti Bembaron - November 25, 2010 - 11:58 pm

Hi Vic, very nice idea. Beautiful and candid moments that they will cherish forever.

Elisa - November 25, 2010 - 11:08 pm

Victoria, these are magnificent.How wonderful for Karine, Kam, and Justin to have such beautiful photos of one of life’s greatest experiences. Bravo! To Karine and Kam- Congratulations!And finally, to Justin- Welcome, Little One! Thank you all for sharing these.


The past month has been an absolute whirlwind of activity for me and looking back at all that I’ve accomplished – and the path I took to get here, it struck me how sometimes the universe, or God, or Karma or whatever you believe in, just has a way of making things happen in a way that is […]

I agree with Motti. You have always given 110% to everything you do and everything you do reflects that. Once again I’m so proud of you!!!!

Susan - November 18, 2010 - 5:08 pm

Love this! I’m a believer! Such a great shot! Job well done Victoria.

Motti - November 18, 2010 - 2:05 pm

Very well done! Someone once said that LUCK is spelled W.O.R.K and that the harder he worked the luckier he got.

You are right, we have to be open to opportunities and be open minded.

Keep up the great work!


MOrrie Portnoff - November 18, 2010 - 12:30 pm

Nothing like a little hard work and talent.

Frederic Hore - November 18, 2010 - 11:18 am

A superb post Victoria, from an affable and positive thinking person. Well done!

I was really impressed with the natural looking fox photo you took at a nature park in Montreal, which garnered you a top 10 position from more that 700 photographic submissions at the SPPQ (Société de Promotion de la Photographie de Quebec) photo competition a few years ago. This appeared to set you on the road to success.

Then we worked together on a photo shoot in May of model Scarlet James at the Hera Bell Studios, where you brought along a simple prop of a luscious red strawberry, that put your images… over the top!

Your inspired creations, are truly creative! I love looking at your work.

Best regards and good luck in your future endeavours.

Great, positive entry Vic! And I stole your quote 🙂

Nicole - November 18, 2010 - 10:17 am

Your recent post goes to show you that you never know what is in store for you & the littlest thing may lead to a huge blessing.

Tamara Stimpson - November 18, 2010 - 9:08 am

Victoria not only is it fate, but your incredible talent and drive to learn more about your profession. Without ALL of these elements, none of this would have happened. You are an amazing woman and photographer and I’m proud to call you a friend!! Keep up the amazing work and keep posting your awesome photos – they inspire all of us (including me…one of the most amature photographers I am sure you know!!!)

Stephane Brazeau - November 18, 2010 - 8:58 am

Nice post Victoria! You are extremely talented and I am so glad we tag along on some of our shoots. There are no doubts your dedication to the craft plays THE major role in your success. The fact you decided to jump head 1st into it shows you have what it takes. When ever I see the images you pull out of our sessions, there are always many of them I wish I would have thought of myself.

I am looking forward for our next outings and feel honored to be considered as part of some of your success.
