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 {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}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Sam} Sneak Peek

We have been so lucky to have a somewhat mild winter this year in Edmonton, so I have gotten to shoot more gorgeous golden hour maternity sessions in the snow than usual. Sam looked absolutely stunning for expecting a baby boy in just a few short weeks and Ryker the dog looked all set to take on big brother duties. I always get asked if it's ok to bring pets to your sessions and the answer is always 100% yes! Pets are part of the family and always add so much charm to a session, plus I love getting a few belly rubs in at the end. Getting a dog to look at the camera is {not surprisingly} easier than getting the attention of most toddlers! S & C it was so wonderful meeting you all. Wishing you all the best as you welcome your first baby. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Alicia} Sneak Peek

Alicia was the lucky winner of my maternity session giveaway back when I had my 12 days of Christmas in December. I don't get to do many outdoor winter maternity sessions since our winters are generally so cold, but Alicia was a trooper and embraced -20 temps for the quickest maternity session I've ever shot! Luckily we were rewarded with some fresh snow and a beautiful Alberta winter sunset in exchange for our cold fingers and toes. Alicia, you looked absolutely stunning against the snowy backdrop. Wishing you both all the best in the coming weeks as you prepare to welcome your little bundle of joy. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Souphatra} Sneak Peek

I was thrilled when Souphatra contacted me to take some last minute photos of her in her very last weeks of pregnancy and asked if we could do the session in her home. Of course I was happy to be inside as it was a very chilly weekend, but being in home gave us the opportunity to do some bare belly shots that turned out simply beautiful - Souphatra you were absolutely stunning. I can't wait to meet your baby boy in the next couple weeks. Wishing you both all the best as you prepare to welcome your first born. Enjoy. {K}

Edmonton Maternity Photographer {Melanie Maternity} Sneak Peek

This post is way overdue, but what would the holiday season be without a bout of the flu! Finally feeling back to normal and ready to get all caught up just in time to spend some time with my little ones and family over Christas. Since Melanie's session fell during a long December cold snap that saw days and days below -20, we were forced inside for most of her session. Luckily, the Mosaic Centre in south Edmonton is full of gorgeous light and beautiful architecture, the perfect spot for this session. We had limited space to work with as there was a little event going on all around us, but this sweet family was getting awww's from everyone once they snuggled up on the stairs together, and little Averly did great in between shots waving hello to everyone as little ones that age love to do. After we got some shots inside, Melanie bravely let me put her in a long red dress and pose her outside in the freezing cold - we were outside for mere minutes, but the results were amazing, Melanie looked absolutely stunning against the winter backdrop. Hartwig family thank you for the wonderful session. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and all the best in the coming weeks, I can't wait to meet your little one in the new year. Enjoy. {K}
