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 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 & 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}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Now offering Fresh 48 Sessions}

As a mom to three beautiful girls, some of my most precious memories are of the day they were born. After a very long 9 months of anticipation the moment I met each of my girls was one of pure love and emotion and one that I will never forget. The days and weeks that followed though, those emotional, tiring weeks, are a blur. The days that I became a new mom, a mom to two, and a mom to three, the sweetness of my baby girls when they were brand new. What I would give to go back and have some of that time captured.

I am happy to announce that I will now be offering {Fresh 48} Sessions exclusively to my maternity & newborn clients. What is a {Fresh 48} session? Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. Shots of your little one’s tiny toes, first yawns, sweet details and those quiet moments between you and your new little one. I will come to your place of birth within 48 hours.  Not meant to replace a traditional newborn session, no props or posing, it will just be me capturing your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way.

{Fresh 48} are offered alone or to clients that book a maternity &/or newborn package for an additional $250

. The sessions are 30-60 minutes at your place of birth and include 15-20 fully edited high resolution images.

Due to the fact that I will be on call for these sessions, I can only offer a very limited number of bookings per month, so it is best to contact me and book early. 

Here is a snapshot of a {Fresh 48} session I was honoured to photograph this spring. Enjoy. {K}
