Edmonton Maternity & Newborn Photographer {Baby Emma}

Hard to believe it is nearly October. This month always flies by fast and before I know it I will be busy preparing for Christmas. Thank you so much to all the wonderful families who chose me tho photograph their families this fall, it has been my busiest ever and I am so happy that the fall colours cooperated this year, even if it has been a bit on the chilly side. I have a feeling we are going to have a lovely October, so if you are looking to book a last minute fall session I still have a few October openings - check out my convenient online booking page here. With the snow in the forecast this past weekend my winter and studio Christmas minis are starting to book up, book your spot now!

Now is when I start to think about the coming year and there are a lot of exciting changes to come in 2020! I am always looking at ways to make the experience you have from the time of booking to receiving your photos better and ensure that you are receiving the highest quality service and products. I would love to keep you posted, you can sign up for my brand new newsletter that will be going out soon. You’ll receive session tips, styling ideas, news and first chance at booking mini sessions and 2020 family sessions right in your inbox quarterly.

I met this sweet couple in Mill Creek Ravine this summer who were eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby, not knowing yet if they would have a boy or a girl. Little Emma arrived soon after and the biggest surprise of all was her gorgeous full head of hair. As a mama to babies who were born with peach fuzz I am always amazed when newborns are born with so much hair, my curly haired 4 year old still hasn’t had her first haircut. Emma was just a little doll for her session, and looked so beautiful in my favorite color purple. Ben and Kristie, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special time for your family. Wishing you all the best as a family of 3 (or 4 with Miss Lucy). Enjoy! {K}

Edmonton Maternity | Fresh 48 | Newborn Photographer {Baby Kaya}

It’s officially summer and the kick off to a very busy 5 months for me! My summer newborn openings are nearly full and summer family sessions are booking fast - and PS only ONE September family session opening left! I would love to see your family this year and give you an amazing photography experience. Contact me today or visit my online booking page to book your 2019 family session. So many July babies coming soon but first a quick family trip down to beautiful Montana to celebrate July 4th with our American family and photograph my beautiful cousin’s senior portraits! Can’t wait to share my favorite moments when we get back! Loving the new Squarespace app that is giving me the opportunity to write this post on the road, so flippin’ convenient!

June was the month of tiny tiny babies! Miss Kaya was one of three healthy 5 lb. newborns I was lucky to photograph this month; I wonder if the streak will continue in July! So so teeny tiny! The Sotto family has been with me since welcoming their first son a couple years ago and I was so happy when they asked me to capture their baby girl. Big brother Miguel and baby Kaya sure made me work for every shot but with patience I created some lasting memories for this gorgeous family. Fedilisa and Marvin, thank you so much for choosing me as your family photographer and having me capture the beautiful story of welcoming Kaya to the world. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. 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 {Jill Maternity} Sneak Peek

Pretty soon fall will be over and so will my busiest time for family photos. Starting in November though I get back to my regular newborn session ability which is 4-5 openings a month. I currently have one opening left in November, 2 in December and 3 in January. If you are looking to book a maternity, newborn or fresh 48 session now is the time to book as bookings made after October 31, 2017 for 2018 due dates will be subject to my price increases.

Winter maternity sessions can be done outdoors in our snowy wonderland, or in the comfort of your home. Newborn sessions as always are done in the comfort of your home and include lifestyle and posed images of baby - I bring the props. My newborn sessions are fun and laid back, not stressful like they can be when you have to pack everyone up and head to a studio - stay warm this winter and let me come to you.

I met this beautiful family earlier last week on a just gorgeous fall night; they will soon by welcoming a baby girl, a sister for Kate and brothers Ben and Will. Having grown up in a big family, and having three kids of my own, I just love capturing families with three or more kids. I can't wait to see all of the amazing love that will surround the new baby when I do her newborn session in November. Jill & Boris, wishing you all the best, thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special time for your family. 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}
