Edmonton Maternity & Newborn Photographer {Baby Logan} Sneak Peek

Hope everyone is enjoying the last weeks of summer, we sure are, and the countdown is on for our big Disney vacation in September! 28 days until we can finally surprise our girls with a Disney Cruise from Vancouver to San Diego! So far they just think we are spending a weekend in Richmond visiting friends..hahaha. I am sure ready for a bit of time off after what has been an incredibly busy summer full of beautiful families and sweet newborns. The time crunch is on to try and get all caught up before we go away for 10 days - hopefully my faster new I Mac will help a bit with my productivity; I finally had enough of my slow 2010 Macbook Pro earlier this week and headed to the Apple store to get a new system. The 21.5" screen and 4K display is probably my favorite feature so far, I am seeing colors and details I couldn't see before. You might have noticed above that I am going away in September...yep I know, the busiest time for family photos. While my availability is very limited, there are still a handful of September dates open, even a couple weekend spots I believe. My fall inquiries have definitely picked up this week, so now is definitely the time to book your fall family. Click the button below to book using my easy online booking tool.

This was my first of two baby Logan's I was lucky to photograph back in July. I met this beautiful family for the first time last summer and was so excited to hear they were expecting a second baby this summer. We had the most gorgeous summer night for Miss M's maternity session, here is a little sneak peek since I am soooo behind on blog sneak peeks!

I got to photograph little Logan when he was just a couple weeks old, such a handsome little guy like his big brother. He definitely enjoyed being snuggled and swaddled up, but sometimes a baby that needs a little more soothing is a nice change; I wouldn't be a newborn photographer if A - I wasn't patient and B - I didn't love the feeling of a baby in my arms. M & J, thank you so much for inviting me into your beautiful home to capture this special time for your family. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Mariah} Sneak Peek

Rare afternoon blog post because my husband and I are off to VEGAS for the weekend and I am planning on shutting off social media so we can enjoy this time together, out first trip away alone in four years. We are so grateful to have family close that supports us in so many ways, the girls are looking forward to a fun weekend with their grandparents and we are so lucky not to have to worry about them when we are away. This was one of my only weekends left this summer, once we get back it will be go go go, lots of newborn, maternity and family sessions and even some teaching. I will release my limited remaining 2018 openings when I return, se sure to join my VIP group so you  don't miss out.

I met this gorgeous family earlier this spring for Brittany's maternity session during the tail end of our long winter. They weren't sure if a baby girl or boy would be joining big brother Liam, so I was excited to hear that they welcomed baby Mariah, a little sister. Little Mariah definitely made me work for each shot, but after some cuddles she slept like a dream most of the session. Big brother on the other hand was an absolute dream and was just delighted to have his photo taken with his new baby sister. I am so lucky to now be able to offer newborn sessions in my Devon home studio to cater to families specific needs, this family was still in the process of finishing their new home so a studio session was the best option for them. Brittany and Adam, it was so nice meeting you and capturing this special time, wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity & Newborn Photographer {Baby Leslie Sneak Peek}

Wow, June is here and as usual this year is flying by fast! 2018 has been such an exciting year for me and I am so lucky to have most of 2018 booked up already, with so many families I am getting used to seeing every year. I love summer, when the kids are out of school we spend so much time outside enjoying the beautiful river valley and parks close to our home, and I love photographing families in the gorgeous evening light. My summer and fall availability is already very thin, especially weekends, but I am going to be launching an easier way to view my available dates and book your family session with me, watch for the announcement in my VIP group soon and book your 2018 session soon. 

Maternity and newborn sessions will still need to be booked via email. I have very limited spaces available from now until the end of the year, so I definitely encourage you to book as early as possible, ideally in your second trimester. Sessions can now take place in the comfort of your home as usual or in my brand new home studio located in Devon, just 20 minutes SW of Edmonton. 

I was so lucky to meet this beautiful couple earlier this spring for a maternity session in the most gorgeous light in downtown Edmonton. They were anticipating the arrival of their baby boy and I could just feel their love, joy and anticipation in every shot, such a magical session. I was so happy to hear the news that their baby arrived, a bit early but healthy and ready for his newborn photos. The love that surrounds a new baby is so precious and the fact that this boy has two moms to love him (and make him a next generation Harry Potter fan!) makes him just as blessed as any baby I photograph with a loving family. Sweet little Leslie was just an angel for his session, I wrapped and unwrapped him and he opened his eyes just a few split seconds at a time, not bothered at all, a newborn photographer's dream. Samantha & Megan, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special time, wishing you all the best. Enjoy. {K}

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 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 Maternity Photographer {Lisa} Sneak Peek

Where did this month go? Seriously, just over a week away from Christmas and so close to a new year. If you are still looking for a last minute perfect gift (I sure have a lot of shopping still to do) the gift of photography is the perfect option for your parents, your wife or a sibling expecting in the new year or who is due for family photos. Gift certificates are available in any denomination, will be packaged beautifully and delivered in time for Christmas, and are 15% off..until tomorrow. I have two more sessions and a handful to edit, then I am on holidays starting on the 23rd while my girls are on break from school. Thanks so much to everyone who has made this year on of my most successful, I sincerely love being your family photographer.

This month has been back to back to back maternity sessions, which is so exciting because it means I will be snuggling lots of squishy little babies in the new year, the best job ever especially over our long cold winter. Lisa was absolutely glowing when I met her and her sweet little family earlier this month. I recently added some maternity gowns to my props, and Lisa was the first to wear the beautiful white lace gown, which looked just stunning on her. She was seriously goddess like when I shot the images of her in the bath tub, completely over the head adorable little Maci who was definitely wondering why mommy was wearing a dress in the tub! Lisa and Byron, it was so lovely meeting you all. I can't wait to hear the news baby has arrived in the new year and see if Maci has a little sister or a little brother joining her. Wishing you all the best and a very merry Christmas. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Jyoti Sneak Peek}

I can't believe we are already half way through September (and on another note that we have already seen snow) My busiest time of year is here and that means lots of sneak peeks from fall mini sessions on Facebook and Instagram, but less blog posts as I take on less newborn and maternity families in the fall. If you are expecting this winter though, or are looking to book winter family photos or an in home lifestyle session in winter 2017, now is definitely the time to book. I will be releasing winter mini session dates soon!

This gorgeous couple is expecting their first baby and I am so excited to have the opportunity to also do a fresh 48 session and newborn session for them very soon. I can't wait to hear the news that their baby boy has arrived. Jyoti looked absolutely stunning in her final weeks of pregnancy and the love between her and her husband was so beautiful and easy to capture, I can just imagine the joy in their eyes when they are looking at their new baby. Thank you both for this amazing opportunity to capture this special time in our lives. Wishing you all the best as you prepare for baby's arrival. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Jasmine} Sneak Peek

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day. I made a huge breakfast for my wonderful husband then left him the mess and our three girls so I could rush to a session; it was the thought that counted right? In all honesty, my husband is an amazing dad and he is a big reason why I get to do what I do; I love and appreciate him so much.

 The weather has posed some rescheduling issues for me as of late, but a couple weeks ago we had a gorgeous string of weather when I met this wonderful family for a sunny morning maternity session. Baby number three is on the way this summer, and Jasmine was absolutely glowing in her final weeks of pregnancy. Big brother Oliver and soon to be big sister Mille were the sweetest little subjects, I just melted when they gave each other a little hug without even being prompted. I can't wait to see if they have a little brother or a little sister joining them. Wishing you all the very best as you prepare for your newest little one to join the word. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Chelsea Maternity} Sneak Peek

It seemed like I had been chatting with Chelsea a lot since she booked a maternity, fresh 48 and newborn session with me, so I was really excited when I finally got to meet her for her maternity session last weekend. We were so lucky that after it rained pretty much all day, the sun came out just in time for our session. Chelsea was absolutely glowing in her beautiful cream and light pink dress surrounded by her two loves who just clearly adore her. I can't wait to meet her baby girl this summer. Wishing you both all the best in the coming weeks as your prepare to welcome your little one into the world. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Jennifer} Sneak Peek

It doesn't look much like spring this Easter weekend, but last weekend when I met the wonderful Graff family for Jennifer's maternity session the sun was shining and it felt amazing to finally get outside and kick off my busiest time of the year.  Jennifer was absolutely glowing surrounded by the love of her husband and son who are getting ready to have a little lady join the family later this spring. Big brother to be Austin was all smiles the whole session - I can't wait to capture that first big brother and baby sister shot once she arrives. 

Jennifer and Mark, wishing you all the best in the coming weeks. I can't wait to hear the news that your baby girl is here. Enjoy. {K}
