This was our third baby, and the thought of getting everyone ready and sitting in someone's studio was just too much. I had only recently found out about Penelope's work, and when she mentioned that she would come to us, we knew it was the right choice. I am so thankful that we chose Penelope to take our newborn's photos. She allowed us to choose not only the location, but also the date and time that would work best for us. Before the session, she emailed thorough details about what to expect and how to best prepare, and she offered us numerous choices on props and colors. When she arrived, she transformed our house into a studio. She was just amazing with both our newborn and our toddlers, and seemed to have endless supplies of props, including headbands for the older two. My newborn would not settle for pictures, and that was making this mommy very nervous, but Penelope was so patient that I never felt rushed, and was able to take my time to settle her. We also had a few special requests, and Penelope was flexible and happy to get these in as well. We are absolutely in love with our photos, and it was a bonus that the process was so simple. If you are deciding who to choose for your newborn photos, I entirely vouch for Penelope.
I am glad I intuitively chose you as our baby photographer after researching online portfolios of various local photographers. Your gentle, patient, calm natural baby whisperer vibe adds to your creative photography skills. You are forever a part of our sweet parenthood narrative. We love our maternity & our newborn photos of both our babies.
We loved every minute of working with Penelope! Couldn't be happier that I chose her for our little sweetie's newborn shots. From booking to the moment we said goodbye, it was such a great experience. Our son slept through most of his shoot but for the slight moments between prop changes when he woke up Penelope was amazing with him and was able to soothe him on her own. It was such a special experience for us and we'll never forget how much fun we had watching these photos get done! We highly recommend Penelope and will be telling all of our friends and family about her! Thank you so much Penelope and we look forward to working with you in the future.
I just can't get over how amazing the photos turned out. My entire family is just in awe of your talent! You captured such a special time in our lives. You came eager and prepared with an amazing amount of props! I couldn't believe how much effort you put in our pictorial. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we will definitely be using your service again soon for some family pics. I will recommend you to all my family and friends!
Penelope just finished a mini new born session with our little darling angel Samantha. Mentioning that she has excellent skills and mad passion for what she does would be an understatement. She took over and our baby was just so comfortable with her. She knows her stuff and she brought tons of accessories and the likes. Penelope you are a gem. Thank you for making it easy for us.
We got a mini newborn session done for our baby girl. She is almost two months so she was more awake and aware which didn't make it easy for Penelope, but she handled her so beautifully. The few other things I love about her is that she is punctual, has a lot of patience and is very creative with her ideas. We will definitely be seeing her again!!!
Penelope Slack is an extraordinary photographer. She is professional, kind and flexible, and has fun, unique ideas. She knows the most beautiful locations in Vancouver for wonderful family photographs. Penelope is great with kids, and was able to perfectly capture the personalities of both our boys with ease. We love all of our photographs and would highly recommend her to anyone!
Penelope took newborn pictures of our son in fall 2014. She arrived eager and armed with props and a seemingly limitless arsenal of ideas. The photos turned out nothing short of angelic. Of course, as his mom, I am biased, but Penelope’s work captured the precious innocence of new life on earth. They are so adorable, and we will cherish them forever. We were so impressed with her work that we had Penelope take family pictures of us a couple months later. Again, she exceeded all expectation. Penelope is constantly thinking of the best angle, pose and lighting to get the shot just right. Penelope’s photographs perfectly encapsulate the joy and adoration we feel as new parents. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional and talented photographer.
We are very glad to have Penelope take maternity and newborn photos for us, capturing the most special moments of our lives so beautifully. Not only is she a hardworking and talented photographer, she is also a sincere and nice person who is very good with babies and children. She is punctual, well-prepared with lots of props and extremely patient even when our newborn wanted to feed constantly. She does her research and has many good ideas for poses, and asks for our input too. We love our photos and have received many compliments about them from our family and friends. Thank you so much, Penelope!
I would highly recommend Penelope Slack to capture your life's precious moments. Penelope came to my house to snap some pictures of my newborn, 5 day old, son. He wasn't so coopertive at first, as we could not get him to sleep. In total, Penelope ended up being at my house for just over 5 hours. She was very patient and took her time to ensure she got the right shots. I could not be any more pleased with how my photos turned out. I will cherish them forever.
We had the pleasure of working with Penelope this past summer. We approached her for some photos of our newborn boy. We had some very sentimental and specific requests as he is a surviving twin, his brother sadly passed away shortly after birth. We had some ideas of how to include his late brother in the shots and Penelope helped us narrow them down. She was very respectful and really paid attention to detail. When one of the shots didn't quite turn out how we envisioned due to how sentimental it was to us, Penelope did not hesitate to offer a redo. This is our 4th newborn photo shoot as we have 3 other children and this was by far our best experience. Thank you Penelope.
