Alberta Newborn Photographer {Baby Everette}

Happy Mother’s Day. I am writing this post super late in the evening as this Mother’s Day was a busy one, from spending the morning with my mom, to coming home, seeing my husband off to work, then doing my best to be present for my girls while trying to get all caught up because this time tomorrow I will be in Vegas! Typical day, motherhood is just that, juggling a million things all the time, even on our special days. Another word that resonates with me when I think of Motherhood is “fleeting” - My oldest daughter will be 10 this summer and my baby just turned 4, and every year seems to fly by faster than the last. Getting in the frame with my girls is the only way I know I will be able to hold onto to this beautiful season of my life. This Mother’s day treat yourself with family photos that I know you will cherish as your children grow older. 2019 family session dates are booking up fast, click on button to see current openings and conveniently book your family session online today.

What kind of Mother’s day would it be without featuring a brand new gorgeous mama on the blog. I met sweet baby Everette earlier this week and oh my gosh what a little doll she was. I am so lucky to call Aryn and Hayes family and I was so excited when they asked to photograph their baby girl. Little miss Evie was born on Easter Sunday, a bit earlier than expected, so a very tiny 6 lbs. of pure sweetness. I photographed this new family in their gorgeous home, so full of natural light and the nursery has to be one of the most beautiful I’ve seen, such a treat. I am always blown away how amazing parents can look during the throughs of early days with a newborn, and Aryn was no exception, such a stunning new mom! And both parents just beaming with love for their little one, it doesn’t get much better than that. A & H thank you so much for having me capture this special time for your family. I can’t wait to see you all again soon and watch little Everette grow up. Wishing you all this best as a family of three. Enjoy! Love {K}.

This summer is quickly coming to an end. It'y my oldest daughter's 9th birthday tomorrow and the rest of the year seems to fly by after that, before we know it it's my birthday, Halloween, my middle ones's birthday in November and then boom it's Christmas! It is so amazing how fast time and the years fly by when you become a parent. I remember sitting in my daughter's finished nursery before she arrived thinking is this baby ever going to get here and here I am nine years later and it went by sooooo fast, too fast! This is why newborn and family photography is so important and why I feel so lucky every time I capture such fleeting moments and memories for families, your babies are only babies for so long and you only get so many years with your children. If not for yourself, give your kids the gift of images of them wrapped in their mother's arms or being tickled by their dad, my girls love looking back at our old family photos and remembering how little they used to be and how young their mom and dad used to look, how life was when their was just one, two then three of them. If you are looking to book a 2018 session my newborn and family openings are booking up fast now. Please contact me to book your 2018 or 2019 newborn session.

July was a full month of sweet squishy little newborns, including two little guy's named Logan. The second Logan I was lucky to meet was the 100th newborn I've photographed, and what  perfect timing as this little guy is very special. This beautiful family has been wanting to start a family for many years and after 5 years on a waiting list they finally received the most amazing news, a baby boy would be theirs through the love of adoption. I couldn't imagine the joy and happiness they must feel and did it ever show when I finally got to meet them, you couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces, just pure love and joy.  This tiny 5lb. little guy had to travel a few hours home and I couldn't stop imagining what it would be like to bring a baby home after waiting so long, the anticipation to finally get home and start your life together! For his newborn session he was so wide eyed and smiley to start then a sleeping little angel for me once I posed him, the kind of session newborn photographers dream of! Michelle and Brendan, it was such a pleasure meeting you both and capturing this very special time for your family. Wishing you the very best as a family of three. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Oliver} Studio Session Sneak Peek

Such a beautiful day today, taking advantage of the weather and heading out with my husband to hit up a patio later tonight, something we don't often find the time for with three kids that keep up busy. This is such a beautiful time of year and really a great time for family photos. Golden hour is the most beautiful time of day for photos, but the summer months make it difficult for families with younger children who can't stay up until 10pm for photos. In spring though a 7:45pm session has gorgeous light and doesn't push bed time too late for little ones. I have a few last minute openings in May if you want to take advantage of the early sunsets for your family photos. Spring mini sessions are now booking too, visit link below for more info and to book. 

I was so lucky to meet little Oliver when he was just hours old for his Fresh 48 session earlier this month; it was such an honour to capture such a fleeting and special time for one of my dear friends, witnessing new parents just look at their brand new baby with so much awe and love is so beautiful to me and always brings me back to those days with my girls.  When he was 12 days old it was time for his newborn session which we did in my Devon home studio. He definitely wasn't a fan of being undressed, but once I got him swaddled up he slept like a dream. Trinity and Hugh, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your beautiful baby boy, it was so wonderful seeing you both. Wishing you all the best on the amazing adventure of parenthood. 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 & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Reagan} Sneak Peek

Happy new year everyone! I hope that you all had a nice relaxing Christmas and were able to spend time with the ones you hold dearest. After what was the worst flu season for our family in early December, we had a wonderful Christmas, especially Christmas Day which we spent all alone at home in our pjs all day...and drinking a few coffees with baileys. I am so excited and optimistic about 2018, and am looking forward to photographing so many families again this year. Very soon I will be announcing the opening of a new home studio, as well as some new newborn packages, and hopefully by February a brand new website. Also offering $100 off in home sessions booked for this January and February - spaces are booking up fast so book your spot soon!

My last session of 2017 was of just the most adorable family of five, who just like me, now have three sweet girls. Little Reagan joined the family just in time for Christmas, a Christmas that I am sure they will hold dear in their hearts for years to come. Mom warned me that her babies are always wide awake for their newborn photos, but after a few wide eyed shots little Reagan drifted off to sleep and was just a doll for me. The love that surrounds a new baby, especially in the comfort of home, absolutely fills my heart with so much joy, I am so thankful to get to do what I do. Robyn & Mat, thank you so much for inviting me into your beautiful home to capture this special time. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Newborn Photographer {Baby Lincoln} Sneak Peek

The summer of adorable newborns continues. I have had the pleasure of photographing more newborns this summer than I ever have, and I just seem to fall more in love with these sessions every time.  There is just something about the love that surrounds a newborn that I just find intoxicating, and because all of my newborn sessions are done on location in my newborn families homes, families are always so relaxed, making the sessions seem really effortless the more I do them.

This session might be one of my favorites of all time. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by the most gorgeous family in a beautiful light filled home. Little Lincoln was a surprise baby boy, so we promptly took him out of the pink blanket he was in and wrapped him up in a blue one. Big sister Jemma proudly showed me her big girl room and her favorite stuffies, one of which made his appearance in some shots because, why not? Sometimes those stuffies are really part of the family. Mom, who looked absolutely stunning after having a baby just 5 days earlier, had the cutest ideas for some sibling shots in Lincoln's nursery, and it really turned into the sweetest moment when Jemma read her baby brother a few stories in the cute little canvas tent. After some lifestyle family shots, Lincoln was a dream for me when it was time for his posed shots, so curled up and sleepy. I seriously didn't want to go home. Jill and James, thank you so much for inviting me into your beautiful home to capture this special time. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Arianna} Sneak Peek

I met this beautiful family on a gorgeous summer day a couple of weeks ago now. When I arrived Grandma was busy chasing around big brother Matthias and mom was feeding little Arianna while dad finished getting everything ready, a typical morning when there is a new baby. Little Arianna arrived at a very busy time as her aunt was to be married the coming weekend. Such a joyous time for the whole family.

Once everyone was ready to go we hopped onto the master bed for some family shots. Matthias was so sweet and gentle with his new sister, and so full of smiles for me. Little Arianna drifted off to sleep just in time for some shots with mom and dad and on her own. We got through the first few posed shots of her and then that was enough for this little lady. You never know if baby will last a whole session after one feed, or need to be fed a few times to settle, which is why I always allow 2-3 hours for my newborn sessions. In the end we got some sweet shots of mom and Arianna in her gorgeous nursery and memories I hope that this family will cherish for years to come. Michael and Amanda, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to photograph this special time. Wishing you all the best as a family of four. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Weston} Sneak Peek

I met this beautiful couple earlier this year for a pregnancy announcement photoshoot, so I was thrilled when they asked me to do their newborn photos. Handsome little Weston was bright eyed for the first hour of our session, gazing into mom and dad's eyes, but a sleepy dream the rest of the session letting me get some sweet shots, especially the one in dad's stetson. Having been an RCMP family, I have a soft spot for these sessions, even if after my husband always gives me a hard time for not getting the same sweet shots with any of our three girls! The session ended with some Christmas music and some fun little Christmas shots that put me right into the Christmas spirit, so much that I decided to finish my Christmas shopping on the way home! A & A, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture this special time. Have a wonderful first Christmas as a family of four. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton & Area Newborn Photographer {Baby Taylor} Sneak Peek

Slowly getting caught up on all the sneak peeks and sessions; Thank you to all of you who are patiently waiting. Sweet baby Taylor arrived a bit early just as her mama expected when we did her maternity session back in August and I was lucky enough to meet her when she was just minutes old. I had hoped to capture her arrival, but she was in a hurry to meet the world. I just love the raw emotion in these images, so much love. 

Luckily I had time to take her newborn photos at 8 days old just before I left for Click Away 2016 in Seattle. Seeing big brother Carter with her was so sweet, and brought me back to when I brought my second baby home. She sure made me work hard for the sleepy poses, but was perfectly content as soon as I laid her next to her big brother. Amanda and Brad you have a beautiful family, thank you so much for inviting me into the hospital and into your home to capture this special time. Enjoy. {K}
