Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Evan} Sneak Peek

After a busy June so far I still can't believe that tomorrow is the last day of school for my kindergartener and there is only one week left for my 8 year old. Summer holidays is really when we can have the most fun as a family and I am looking forward to lazy mornings at home and afternoons spent outside. I take a bit of time off in July and August. so now is the best time to book your summer family session or newborn session. Summer is a great time for extended family sessions as you usually have family visiting or it's easier to get families that have kids usually busy during the school year together over the summer. July and August sessions are now 50$ off if booked before June 30, contact me for more info and availability.

Sometimes I have to pinch myself. I can't believe how lucky I am to get to photograph some of Edmonton's most beautiful families. I met this family a couple years ago after their first daughter was born and was thrilled when they hired me again to photograph their brand new baby boy. Little Evan was born just in time for me to get home from a long weekend away in Montana and photograph his fresh 48 session. Capturing those first days in hospital is such a joy for me as I know I am capturing such fleeting memories that fade as your babies grow.

I saw this gorgeous family again when Evan was just a couple weeks old and everyone was starting to get settled at home. Big sister Ayla was as sweet as always and just smitten with her baby brother. Little Evan was nice and sleepy for his posed photos but eyes wide at the end of the session, looking so grown up already, so adorable. I absolutely love photographing this family as their home has such beautiful natural light, it is really easy to shoot anywhere in the house, such a treat. Alison & Justin, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special time for you, looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Enjoy. {K}


Chase is One!

One year ago I had the honor of capturing my dear friend Michelle's first born son when he was just hours old. There is something so special about Chase. A big reason I decided to launch my photography business was because Michelle asked me take those first photos of Chase, giving me the final push I needed to believe in myself and officially put myself out there as Kelsie Kelly {Photographer}. It is so hard to believe that it has already been a year since I took these photos in the hospital where Chase was born.

Chase turns one today and this past weekend I had the privilege of capturing his beyond adorable birthday party. Thank you so much Quinton & Michelle for having me capture these special moments in Chase's life. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Kira Fresh 48} Sneak Peek

I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful family earlier this summer for Angele's Maternity session so I was delighted to hear when baby Kira finally arrived - 17 days late. A Fresh 48 session is the perfect way to capture those first days at home that become a complete blur in your memory so quickly. Seeing Kira's three big sister and brothers ask for their turn to hold the baby brought back so many memories to when my baby brothers were born, surrounded by so much love. Coming from a big family myself, my fondest memories are of my baby sisters and brothers coming home. Seeing Angele show her raw emotions brought me back to the first few days with my babies.

Angele and Steve, thank you for inviting me into your home to capture your family. I hope you can look back at these images and remember those special first days at home with Kira. Enjoy. {K}
