Edmonton & Area Maternity Photographer {Brittany} Sneak Peek

Yes! Spring is finally here and I think I can finally put my winter coat and boots away (fingers crossed!). Spring means booking season for me and my summer and fall 2018 are booking up incredibly fast - you all seriously blow me away with your support - thank you. If you are expecting this year, looking to have family or extended family photos this summer or fall, now is definitely the time to book. If mini sessions are your jam, I have a few more cherry blossom  spring mini session openings;  to see openings or book your spot visit the link just below. I am so looking forward to getting back outside for more sessions, I seriously live for golden light and now is the perfect time of year to enjoy it before the mosquitos arrive and the nights get too late for little ones. 

I met this gorgeous family a couple weeks ago now, hard to believe there was still snow on the ground. Brittany was absolutely glowing and had just the most perfect little baby bump I think I've ever seen, and big brother to be was such a little charmer, I can't wait to photograph him with his baby brother or sister. The early spring sunset gave us the most beautiful light and made up for the bare trees and the snow covered ground in one of my favorite spots for sessions, Devon Voyageur Park. Brittany and Adam, thank you so much for having me capture this special time for you. Looking forward to the arrival of your little one later this spring. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Fresh 48 Photographer - Brand new Baby Oliver

Well it looks like by the end of this week we might finally see spring..after more than 168 days of winter it is definitely about time. Since spring is officially here, now is definitely the time to book you 2018 session with me. Weekends are 75% booked between June-October {wow!}, so if a weekend spot is important don't wait!  If mini sessions are your jam, spring mini sessions are booking now and are happening May 6 & 29. I am also hosting cuddle mini sessions for mamas and their babies on April 29th in studio - there are still a couple spots left, but I am sure they won't last long; you can find more info by joining my VIP group.

Fresh 48 sessions, oh if I only could pick one type of session to shoot these would be it. Those first days in hospital after baby arrives are so full of awe, emotion and love and I am so moved when I get the opportunity to capture such an absolutely magical and special time for families. I am so lucky to call this beautiful mama a friend, and I was so thrilled when they asked me to capture the story of their first baby's arrival with a maternity session, fresh 48 and newborn session. Little Oliver took his time arriving in this world, but I am 100% sure he was worth the wait. The pureness of a brand new baby, their curled up toes, little yawns and stretches is almost too much sweetness to handle. Trinity and Hugh thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to capture this fleeting time for you, enjoy those baby snuggles and the amazing adventure of parenthood. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Milestone Photographer {Miguel is One} Sneak Peek

Hooray, it's April and this long winter is hopefully going to end very soon. I am so excited to announce that my home studio is officially open and that I am booking 2018 newborn and milestone sessions now! To celebrate I am offering $100 off any April newborn session (session to take place in April). Newborn sessions can now take place in the comfort of your home or in my cozy in home studio located in Devon, Alberta, about 20 minutes southwest of Edmonton. You can see my updated pricing for studio and in home newborn sessions here. I also offer milestone mini sessions for babies 6 months, 1 and 2 years old, contact me for more info. 

 

I absolutely love when my newborn families come to see me for their little one's first birthday photos, now offered in my home studio for easy set up and clean up. Little Miguel was the sweetest newborn, so I couldn't wait to see how much he had grown, and oh my, he is just the most handsome one year old little man now, all that hair! He wasn't the biggest fan of his cake, but the bubble bath at the end of the session was a hit, especially since mom and dad thought to bring bubbles, so much fun. Fedilisa & Marvin, it was so wonderful seeing you again, wishing you all the best and hope to see you all again soon. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Jack} Sneak Peek

Happy Easter everyone. I hope those of you that have school aged kids are enjoying spring break. Spring break for me is a preview for the summer, laid back days full of fun and time with my kids. I am so lucky that being self employed as a photographer I get to spend days like these with my girls, days that if I worked a 9-5 job I wouldn't get. Some exciting news to share. my home studio is now open for business. I did my first round of Easter minis last weekend (so much fun)  and you can expect more themed minis throughout the year. I am also booking 2018 studio newborn mini sessions and milestone sessions for babies 6 months to 2 years. You can find all info and pricing here. I will be releasing some mom and me cuddle minis in time for Mothers Days soon, be the first to know by joining by VIP group. And don't forget to book your spring mini session, limited openings available. 

Sometimes the stars align and a last minute booking ends up being one of your favourite newborn sessions - that was the case when I met this beautiful family last week. Rebecca and John welcomed baby Jack just a few hours shy of his due date, just in time to celebrate Easter with their new baby. I had the most gorgeous home to shoot in, every room so full of light even on a very dark and cloudy spring day. Jack was so content wrapped up and in the arms of his parents, who were so obviously smitten with him it melted my heart. For his posed photos I definitely had to keep him wrapped up to keep him happy, but he was such an angel and I even got a couple sweet Easter themed images to share just in time for the holiday. Rebecca and John, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special fleeting time. Wishing you all the best as a family of three. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn & Maternity Photographer {Trinity} Sneak Peek

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. I had a very busy one, teaching a Lightroom class Saturday and today welcoming nine beautiful families into my home for Easter Mini sessions in my brand new in home studio. There is still some work to be done, but with the help of my amazing husband I was able to get my studio just ready enough for this weekend. I will continue to offer on location in home newborn sessions and family sessions as always, but am happy to also offer milestone mini sessions, mini newborn sessions, winter maternity sessions and special edition mini sessions in my studio space; watch for more details soon, as well as a grand opening celebration some time this spring. If you are expecting this summer or fall and would like more information (including pricing) on my studio newborn sessions please contact me. I have spent the last several months educating myself on newborn safety and studio posing and I can't wait to do my first newborn session in my studio. I will be announcing a model call very soon on in my VIP group, so be sure to join and add your friends who are expecting a little one soon too!

I have been lucky to know Trinity for many years, we worked at two companies together before I started my photography business and she started her own company Hoot Events, so I was so happy to hear the news that her and her husband would be expecting their first baby this spring. I always like to book sessions on daylights savings as I seem to luck out with the most gorgeous light every time, and I got lucky once again last weekend. Trinity was absolutely glowing and baby was really active the whole time which made for some really sweet moments. We started the session cozy inside the Mosaic centre then trudged through some deep snow for some outdoor shots in the golden light, so worth it! Trinity & Hugh thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special time. Looking forward to meeting your little guy in a few short weeks. All the best. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Vinh} Sneak Peek

Late post tonight, sometimes technology fails me at the worst possible time! This month has been so busy behind the scenes. My new in home studio space is coming together and will be ready just in time for Easter Minis happening this Sunday...I can't wait. I have to thank my amazing husband who has spent so many hours sanding, painting and helping me build my dream in home studio, I am such a lucky lady. I am hoping to have my new website and packages that include in home, on location and studio pricing ready soon! Be sure to join my VIP group on Facebook though for the latest announcements as well as special introductory pricing and studio model calls. 

I can't believe it was almost two summers ago that I first met this beautiful family to capture little Dresden turning one. I was happy to have the opportunity to photograph their growing family again with the arrival of baby Vinh, such a sweet baby boy. I am so lucky to be invited into families homes to capture such a special time, a fleeting time that passes so quickly but is so full of love and moments that you will want to hold onto forever. At just 5 days old, little Vinh was so sleepy for most of the session, so content in the arms of his mom or dad or snuggled up with his brother. Stephanie and Kevin, thank you for inviting me into your beautiful home to capture this special time, it was so nice seeing you all again. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Extended Family Photographer {Ng Family} Sneak Peek

March is right around the corner, which means spring is almost here, almost! As much as I love winter, there usually comes a point in February where I've just had enough. I can't wait for warmer weather and longer days when I can get out and do more sessions outside. Spring mini sessions in the cherry blossoms will be happening in May again this year, be sure to join my VIP group on Facebook for the first chance at bookings, last year's sessions sold out in hours. My summer availability is also booking up really fast, so don't wait to book your grad photos or summer family photos.

I met this beautiful family a couple weeks ago, after Sarah contacted me to photograph her family while she was in Edmonton visiting from out of province. It was too cold to head outside,  but luckily her parents have a light filled front room that was perfect for some family portraits. Sweet little Ella wasn't too sure about being the centre of attention, but nothing a few gold fish crackers couldn't fix. 2018 is going to be an amazing year for this family, with a new baby due in the spring and a summer wedding. Ng fmaily, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture your family. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Sirjanna} Sneak Peek

There are so many exciting things coming up for Kelsie Kelly Photographer I can hardly contain my excitement. My new in home studio is coming together beautifully and I am finalizing a date for a grand opening soon! With the new studio space I figured it was also a good time for a little bit of rebranding, so a new website is on the way soon too. I am so lucky that I have had this opportunity to grow my business, thank you to everyone for the amazing support. 2018 is going to be awesome. Have you joined my VIP group yet, lots of giveaways and model calls are coming up soon, don't miss out!

I met this beautiful baby girl earlier this year during one of my busiest months of newborn sessions. Sirjanna's mama contacted me after she arrived and I was so happy that I was able to fit them in last minute - sometimes you don't realize how special and fleeting those early days with baby are or booking a newborn session is the last thing on your mind when you are busy preparing for baby's arrival, but sometimes it's not too late. This little sweetheart had just the sweetest chubby cheeks, but was definitely happier in her mama's arms once she woke up, I definitely had to work hard for those sleepy shots.  Baljeet & Nirmaljit thank you so much for inviting me into your beautiful home to capture this special time. Wishing you all the best as a family of three. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Milestone Photographer {Mathias is One} Sneak Peek

Is it spring yet? I had to buy myself some tulips today to remind myself that winter is almost over. Earlier this week this winter got really long when I took a bad fall on the icy sidewalks and hit my head hard enough to knock myself out. Found out I have a pretty bad concussion, so I will be taking it easy over the next couple weeks. Something I am really looking forward to is to finally officially open my home studio in beautiful Devon. The painting was finished last week and new wooden backdrops will be going up soon! I am hoping to host an grand opening party sometime in March or early April, watch for more details in my VIP group on Facebook.

This adorable cheeky little guy has been stealing my heart since his newborn photos last winter. I was so happy to have him be one of the first to test out my new studio space and even have a bath in my kitchen sink, something I miss now that my babies are almost all grown up. Mathias wasn't a big fan of the mess of his cake smash, but was all smiles for bath time. Another baby will be joining the family later this year, such exciting news for such a beautiful family. S & F, thank you so much for sharing Mathias's first year with me. Happy 1st Birthday sweetie pie. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Rowan} Sneak Peek

January was one of my busiest starts to the year ever, so I am looking forward to a bit of a slow down this month to catch up on editing, do some learning as well as a bit more teaching. Also, getting my new in home studio ready to start booking newborn and milestone sessions beginning this spring! My husband (how did I get so lucky?) has been busy painting this week, you can follow the progress over on Instagram. I can't wait to blog a studio tour once it is all done! If you are interested in knowing more about my in-studio pricing and looking to book from mid-March on, please contact me. Hoping to have my all new packages listed on the website soon! Also if you haven't yet, be sure to join my VIP Facebook group where I will be announcing a newborn model call soon, as well as some special giveaways, photography tips and more.

I met this beautiful family just before Christmas for Lisa's in home maternity session, and was so excited to hear that they welcomed a baby boy in the new year, Rowan, a little brother for big sister Maci. I don't think I have ever had an easier family to photograph, their love for each other just poured into every shot and they are all so laid back in front of the camera, such a joy to capture. Seeing the bond between siblings grow so early on is so precious and little Maci sure adores her brother; I am so lucky to be witness to such special moments in families lives. Lisa & Byron, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this fleeting time. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}
