Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Lyla} Sneak Peek

Wow, babies, babies and more babies. Just like May was, July has been a very busy month for me when it comes to newborn sessions. I only take on 4-5 newborn sessions a month (2-3 in the fall) but it never fails - even if due dates are spread apart, babies always arrive within days of each other. If you are thinking about booking a newborn session for anytime this year, I would highly recommend booking very soon as those spots fill up quickly.

I met this sweet family earlier this summer for Jasmine's maternity session. The babies gender was a surprise, so I was so excited to hear that she had a baby girl to join big sister Camille; there is just something special about the bond between sisters. We started the session with big brother Oliver giving his baby sister a bottle; such a sweet candid moment. After some family shots I got little Lyla all to myself, and she was a absolute dream. I could wrap, unwrap, tuck here and there and she stayed fast asleep the whole time, such a little doll. Jasmine and Neil, thank you so much for having me photograph this special time for your family. Wishing you all the very best as a family of 5. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton + travel photographer {Kelli Senior Photos} Sneak Peek

I am so lucky to have family that live in the beautiful state of Montana, and even better family that asked me to photograph their gorgeous daughter for her senior year. Earlier this month we travelled down to Montana with our three girls and spent the most fun filled days over the July 4th holiday. It was hotter than we could have imagined, about 38 degrees the whole time we were there, but nothing some visiting in the shade or jumping in a pool couldn't fix. On our last night I had the pleasure of photographing my husband's aunt's oldest daughter, who will be graduating high school this year; hard to believe she was the same age as my little Taylor the first time I met her! We took photos on a gorgeous ranch that she works at part time, then back near her home with her beloved horse. I was seriously in photography heaven! Amazing light, stunning girl, a barn and a horse, I felt like I was shooting a country star, it was awesome. Ober family, it was such an honour to capture this special time for you. Kelli you are a smart, kind and beautiful young woman and I am excited to see what the future brings for you, only good things I am sure. Auntie, I will come back anytime to capture your wonderful family again. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Milestone Photographer {Brooklyn 6 months} Sneak Peek

Baby's first year goes by so fast and I am honoured to get the opportunity of capturing this fleeting year for so many families. 6 month sessions are some of my favorites, because they are full of sweet smiles and little milestones like touching toes and rolling over. 

 After braving some light rain in the pretty green space behind the family's home, I incorporated some props from Brooklyn's newborn session into some shots in the family's newly finished walkout basement, such a beautiful space. Little Brooklyn was so full of smiles, such a tiny little thing but still reaching all the sweet 6 month milestones like reaching for her little toes. I can't wait to see this family again in the fall and again early next year for Brooklyn's 1 year session. Sarah and Mark, it has been so nice getting to know you, thank you for having me capture these precious memories for you. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Laila} Sneak Peek

 I am slowly getting all caught up on session galleries and blog sneak peeks. Summers are when I like to spend some quality time with family, so some editing time gets traded in for some fun in the sun while schools out. If you are still waiting, thank you so much for your patience.

I feel like I have known this beautiful family for so long, Chelsea felt like a longtime friend from the time I met her for her maternity session earlier this summer after all of the chatting we did leading up to her session dates. Little Laila made an early arrival and had to spend an extra few days in the NICU which unfortunately made it impossible to do a fresh 48 session we had planned; I was so happy to hear when she was home and I could finally meet her. This session was so full of pure love, so many hugs and kisses, my heart was just melting with every shot. And when we moved onto some simple posed shots, Laila was an absolute doll. Chelsea and Tareq, thank you both so much for the opportunity to capture your family during this very special time. Wishing you all the best as a family of 4. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Milestone Photographer {Georgia First Birthday} Sneak Peek

I was so thrilled to meet these three girls, probably because I am a mom to three girls too! The adorable baby sister was about to turn one and it was time for first birthday photos and a cake smash. All the girls were so ecstatic to be in front of the camera, which made for such a fun session. Little Georgia didn't want to sit still for long, until the cake came out. Not a big mess, but you can sure tell she has a bit of a sweet tooth. 

Miss Georgia I hope you had a wonderful birthday earlier this week. The first year goes by way too fast! Dmytruk family thank you for the opportunity to capture this special milestone. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Family Photographer {Stuart Family} Sneak Peek

Well we made it home from a quick family trip down to beautiful Montana. We were able to visit family and enjoy some record breaking heat! I also got to photograph my first senior portrait session for my husband's cousin that I can't wait to share on the blog next week. All in all a great time! Now that we're home I have tons of blogging and editing to catch up on! Good thing the kids are off to camp next week. Thanks to everyone waiting for your patience.

I met this family a couple weeks ago, on a gorgeous summer night. Little Eleanor lit up the whole session with her sweet personality and smile. She will be one this month, so we took some birthday photos at the end with a big pink balloon! I just love incorporating props into family sessions. Megan and Jordan just adore their sweet baby and it showed in every single shot. Thank you both for having me capture your beautiful family. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Charlotte} Sneak Peek

Wow, June flew by! I can't believe school is out and it's officially the beginning of summer. Trying my best to get all caught up on blog sneak peeks this weekend as we are heading out on a little family vacation tomorrow morning..8.5 hours in the car with 3 kids, but it will be worth it when we get there. 

June was one of my busiest months of newborns. I met this sweet family for Ashley's maternity session when she was a couple days over due. This little one was not in any hurry to get here, as she made her mama wait almost 2 weeks before she arrived; I think she was just waiting for her grandma and auntie to arrive to visit from out East. Sweet little Charlotte was definitely more happy in mommy or daddy's arms, but after lots of snuggles she was ready for her posed shots.  Ashley and Brad, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special time. Wishing you all the best as a family of three. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Milestone Photographer {Alena 8 months} Sneak Peek

I have had the pleasure of getting to know so many families that have me capture their baby's first year. I get to see families about every 3 months, so I get to see baby at all of the fun stages that happen in the first year, as well as parents getting more comfortable with their new role as mom and dad. It always amazes me how fast the first year goes by! Seems like yesterday I was meeting little Alena for the first time, and now she is on the move, crawling away from every shot, an adorable busy little 8 month old. 

Brittany and Aaron, it has been so much fun getting to know you both and watching Alena grow this past 8 months. Hard to believe the next time we see each other she will almost be one and I will be putting together her first year album. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Jackson} Sneak Peek

Babies, babies and more babies. Our wonderful country turns the big 150 tomorrow so what better time to start blogging some of Canada's newest and cutest little citizens. June was an absolutely amazing month of meeting new families and their precious newborn babies. 

Little Jackson was just over two weeks old when I met him. He was the most bright eyed little guy, wide awake almost our entire session but not fussy at all; I don't think he even cried once, just a furrowed brow concerned little look every few shots that was so cute. I love some music in the background and I think mom and dad's awesome play list made for a really fun and laid back session. Kelsey and Cory, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to photograph this special time. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy your first Canada Day as a family of three. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Lauren} Sneak Peek

I met Jennifer last year when she had me photograph her extended family, so I was very excited to hear that she was expecting another little one and wanted me to do her maternity and newborn photos. When we did Jennifer's maternity session in the spring she had such a perfect little baby bump, so I was surprised to meet sweet baby Lauren, almost 9 pounds. and already with adorable chubby cheeks. Big brother Austin was obviously smitten with his baby sister, but not quite comfortable with holding her yet; We still managed to get some adorable shots of the two of them though. Jennifer and Mark, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special time. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}
