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

SadieisONESadie, I can’t believe a year has passed since you were born.

We fell in love with you the moment you arrived, all 9 pounds 5.5 ounces of you. And how could you not fall in love with all of that chub, and HAIR!

After the first couple of weeks, you became the hardest little babe, and earned  the nickname “Sadie Monster”, which seems to have stuck.  You’re sister thinks it’s your actual name, she proudly introduces you as ” my baby sister Tadie Monster”. You’ve grown out of your Colic, and turned into a hilarious little imp, full of smiles, and energy.




You have been such an amazing light in our lives, so clever, so MOBILE, so independent.  I’m so thankful that you’re a part of our little family, and as I type this out, with tears welling in my eyes, I want “future” Sadie to know just how loved you are, how special you are, and how much love and light you’ve brought to our whole family. 

Happy first birthday to my baby girl.

xoxo Mom

Oh Abby, she is my fave. She’s such a loyal FACEBOOK follower. I can always count on a few Facebook likes on the pictures I post, from her, which is SO appreciated. I was so excited when I got her email about booking a maternity and newborn session.

I met David and Abby one of of my favourite location in Mission, and started shooting. They both seemed a little tense at first, but I reassured them that I would be bossy, and they would look great. And they did! You can tell just how excited they were to meet their little baby boy..I tried to coax their baby name out of them, but they wouldn’t bite. They both looked amazing, Abby was sporting a fabulous cardigan/shawl,  that she purchased at Spruce Collective in downtown Abbotsford, and she brought some adorable moccasins. The moccasins happen to be made right here in our backyard. Amanda and Jeff Penner are the talented duo that make Minimocs right here in Abbotsford B.C. be sure to check them out.

I can’t wait for their newborn session, when I get to meet this baby boy. I can feel how loved he is already! I’m sending you some positive birthing energy, and lots of love over the next few weeks.

Oh this sweet family. I just love them. Rahel and I met when we both worked at Boston Pizza, years ago. We bonded over our  use of memos, and complicated salad orders.. and maybe a little wine. We’ve now entered motherhood together, and can bond over our sleepless babies, messaging each other at 11pm, laughing that our little “M’s” are still up being crazy.

It was such a pleasure photographing these guys. The winter light was amazing, and baby toddler M was way too cute.

Rahel is now an amazing Real Estate Agent, so if you’re looking for a new home, you know who to call! You can check her out on her Facebook Page or her Website

Monica contacted me about shooting baby Q’s newborn session a little later than the “posed” shots allow. Things with two kids can be crazy, and all of a sudden, Q was a month old. I was invited out to the farm, and I was in heaven. The South East end of Abbotsford has some amazing farmland, nestled  in the Fraser Valley between the mountains. It was so fun to wander their property, and captures their growing family.

When Natalie contacted me to shoot her family session I was so excited. Her eldest son Landon has the most beautiful eyes, and baby Baine has the best curly hair. They are such a nice family, and the whole time I was shooting, I was thinking that Landon and my daughter would get along so well. We got a few wiggles out, some fruit snack bribes, and some tickles later. We shot at one of my favourite locations in Mission,  I always get the best sunset images there.
