Al – Professional Photographer
Al has been a professional photographer for over 25 years; beginning with wedding photography, then specializing in baby photography. Al was previously the National Director of Photography for Canadian Baby Photographers. He has trained over 100 photographers across Canada and has photographed over 30,000 babies.
One of the most rewarding things about being a baby photographer is connecting and interacting with the baby, and seeing the reaction of mom and dad when they see their baby smile for the very first time. Al’s experience with handling babies allows him to be patient and calm with the baby. He has often been called the “baby whisperer” by our satisfied customers. Al enjoys meeting the families and providing a physical memory that will last forever.
When not photographing babies, Al enjoys being outdoors canoeing, hiking and camping with his family.

Andrew – Professional Photographer
Andrew discovered his love of photography while growing up in Scotland. He spent two years studying photography at Lauder Technical College in Fife before embarking on a five year spell as a cruise ship photographer, where he met his wife to be, subsequently starting a family here in Canada.
He soon started working as a baby photographer, and has brought his warmth and sense of humour to the role for more than 12 years. He joined The Baby Photographers in November of 2017, and hopes his unique perspective on life and photography will allow him to help the company become a household name.
When he’s not holding a camera, he’s usually found catching up on his beloved Liverpool Football Club, listening to his extensive vinyl record collection or annoying his two children with rubbish jokes.
“Andrew is really awesome and does such an amazing job. Very professional and polite, he is patient and makes the photo shoot a fun experience. Would definitely recommend the company to anyone needing photos. Thank you so much.”

Darrell – Professional Photographer

His career began during his time at Fanshawe College’s photography program in London, Ontario. Darrell has since spent 33 years with Canadian Baby Photographers, and since 2017 he has been a part of the team at The Baby Photographers serving London, Southwestern Ontario and Ottawa.
There is no greater satisfaction for Darrell than when he captures an expression or smile that the parents have yet to see. Darrell is extremely patient, courteous and professional. Babies’ faces “light up” when they see his smiling eyes and hear his contagious laugh and buzzing baby noises.
Darrell’s other interests include music, nature photography, collecting vintage cameras, reading and spending time at the lake.
