Specializing in Belly to Baby & Empowerment Portraits.

My name is Marianna Batkin and I am Va Va Zoom Studio photographer. I specialize in capturing women of all ages, their families and newborn babies. I truly believe that every woman is beautiful and deserves to be celebrated no matter the occasion, whether it is her pregnancy, arrival of a new baby or simply her want and need to feel sexy, confident and amazing.

My goal is to create not just pictures but timeless memories that you will hold in your hands and will cherish for generations. Not comfortable in from of the camera and don't know how to pose? No problem. I professionally light you, pose you and guide you through your session. You don't need to be a model to look amazing in your photographs. I am experienced working with all body types and I know what angles are most flattering. My client closet has a wide selection of incredible couture gowns from renown maternity designers. My Hair and Makeup stylist is a miracle-maker. I promise you that you will feel like a Queen on the day of your photoshoot and you will love the end result.

I work from my cozy studio space, centrally located in close proximity to HWY 1 in Coquitlam, BC. I do not offer outdoor sessions at this time.

A little bit about me.

I am a wife to a wonderful man and a mother of two adorable boys. My family is my world and I would not have it any other way. 

My professional background is in creative advertising & design and photography has always been a big part of my life. With 18 years of experience, I worked as graphic designer and art director for several agencies and even had my own successful graphic design & printing business. As far as direct photography background, I photographed commercial real estate projects and also weddings, only discovering my passion for newborn photography after the birth of my first son in 2015. I am professional and easy to work with and I love making my clients happy.

My Newborn photography style is Boho inspired and I love using colors that are found in nature. For my Maternity and Boudoir portraits I enjoy creating both neutrally inspired and colorful images for my clients, and I try to bring a graphic element to overall composition in post production. I offer both traditional maternity photography as well as boudoir maternity portraits and you are welcome to combine both styles in your session. I have a large collection of maternity gowns, dresses, fabrics and outfits in my client wardrobe for you to choose from. I pride on retouching all images myself and I strive to keep them fresh, clean, contrasting and modern through my post-production process.

My retouching style is a mix of high end magazine retouching and fine art. Both color and artistic black & white conversions of images you purchase are always included in your final gallery.

In my spare time, I like to travel, garden, work out and spend time with family and friends. I dedicate majority of my time to my family.

We had such an amazing experience by getting both our maternity and newborn photo session done by Marianna. I just love photographs and how she makes the photography session so relaxed and fun. Thanks for everything Marianna. You made everyone feel very relaxed and we really enjoyed the photography session. You are the best Marianna. Always looking forward to see you in future for photoshoot. Thanks a lot.


Easy 5 stars for Marianna Batkin of VaVaZoom Studio. She was prompt to reply on a last minute inquiry and was very accomodating for all of our family's needs. We were very comfortable and felt well taken care of during our session with her and she always informed us of what was happening to make us and our newborn feel safe. She was amazing!


We had a newborn photoshoot with Marianna and it was such a great experience! Marianna was so gentle with our baby and very professional. We loved the result and ordered additional photos. Highly recommended!


Marianna took our maternity and newborn pictures. The pictures were gorgeous, just as we wanted for a treasure memory. Marianna was very professional, and she was able to guide us through the photoshoot with ease while being open to our ideas and vision we had for the photos. She also gave us great ideas that resulted in beautiful shots. Thanks so much Marianna!


The best! I cannot recommend Marianna enough. She did our new baby sessions for our two kids and the pics were STUNNING! She’s indeed a family member by now and we will always refer to her.


Marianna was wonderful to work with, gave all the directions and had all the dresses and props for my photoshoot. The photos turned out amazing, would definitely recommend Va VA Zoom to everyone!


She is amazing in what she does. Full of patience and extremely professional. She did the photoshoot of our twins and i am more than happy with the results. Highly recommend her to create beautiful lifetime memories.


Working with Marianna during our newborn shoot was fantastic. She was patient with our very awake little guy and her creativity produced some beautiful photos!


I had a newborn first photoshoot of my baby from Marianna. She is very professional for her job. I just love her service and her beautiful photographs pictured for my baby. Would love to book her for future coming photoshoots.


I loved doing photos with Marianna. She's got a special touch with babies and such an eye for beauty and simplicity in her photographs. She really listens to what you want out of your photo session and delivers. I drove a distance to see her particularly as I love her work so much. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
