Michelle Cervo- Family and Newborn Photographer » Mission, Abbotsford, Fraser Valley portrait photographer, specializing in authentic family and newborn photography

One of my main hold ups with blogging is knowing what to write. Finding the words to truly describe the wonderful families that I capture, I worry about sounding insincere, or cheesy.  It’s funny, because  in “real-life”  you can’t get me to shut up.

Anyway, y’all  (I’m watching Fixer Upper) don’t care about my words, you care about images. So without further ado, the Grewal Family.




Oh this sweet family, from the moment they all go out of the car, I knew we’d have so much fun.  They were carefree, and just wanted to have a fun afternoon with the girls.

I cannot stress this point enough, having fun at a session is our goal. Getting beautiful images, that’s just the bonus from an enjoyable, stress free (or minimal stress) session. Those genuine laughs, tummy tickles, gentle cuddles, and soft chubby hand holding, those are the everyday moments that I aim to capture.

Now, enough about that, let’s see the images! You may recognize these sweet twins from Once Upon a Time (Season 5), or, if you’re like me, you’re about 4 seasons behind in any show (or up to date on some after a few binge watching weekends).


Sometimes everything just clicks (no pun intended), the people, the light, the images. This was one of many sessions that I’ve shot for the Smid family, and they just keep getting better and better. I love capturing their family, and documenting the growing kiddos.

Already looking forward to our next session xoxo



The first step is to admit you have a problem, “I, Michelle Cervo, am a terrible blogger”. I attempt to blog, and then I just get caught up with editing, and emails, and the general craziness of motherhood. But, I’ll be working on sharing a few sessions from the past, well, 8+ months.

I met Pavi and Rick in Abbotsford, at one of my favourite locations (which I won’t share publicly because I’m only 70% sure we weren’t trespassing 😉 ).

They were such naturals, and we had such a beautiful evening capturing their growing family.

Birth is such an amazing thing to witness, the raw emotions, joy, happiness, pain is so real.
The birth of Baby Charlotte was no different, we laughed, we cried, and we rejoiced.
