Best of Vancouver Newborn Photographers: The First Two Finalists
At the beginning of February we asked you to submit your nominations for the best of Vancouver newborn photographers. Newborn babies are magical, and those first photos of them are so precious. You want to make sure you’re trusting the right person to capture the perfect shot. Our judges reviewed all of your nominations, and narrowed it down to the top 10. We’ll be profiling them here, and then we’ll be asking you to vote on the very best. Without further ado, here are the first two finalists, which are presented in no particular order.
Photos by Kathryn
Kathryn Langsford creates classic, timeless, and elegant portrait-style black and white photography that reveals personality and authenticity. She views portraiture as the art of character expression, a true reflection of natural charisma. She aims to capture the many sides of her subject’s personality – either on location or in her Vancouver studio. Shooting her subjects in a friendly, relaxed manner, Kathryn’s focus is on the comfort and enjoyment of those she photographs. Years of working with and photographing people, and a keen and artful eye has honed her ability to create beautifully unique, artistic portraits.
Of all the types of portraits Kathryn is asked to create, newborn photography has always been a favourite. She says, “A newborn’s fleeting, ethereal beauty only exists for a few short weeks and it is an honour to be a part of that time in my client’s lives.” A self-taught artist and entrepreneur, Kathryn is sought after by the most well known of Vancouver families – as well as many international ones who make the trip to have their family captured annually.
