      Newborn Photography Sessions | Edmonton Newborn Baby Photographer | St. Albert Newborn Photographer

      I have been specializing in newborn photography for over 14 years out of my St. Albert home studio. I have won many awards for my artistic images and many can be seen on display in the St. Albert Sturgeon Community Hospital, and the St. Albert Public Health Center!   It is important to book your newborn photo session before baby arrives to ensure I have a spot available.  Sometimes I get last minute openings, but you don’t want to leave it up to chance.   My style of baby photography is soft, modern and sophisticated with a pop of color.  My clients come from all over the Edmonton area; Morinville, Spruce Grove, Fort Saskatchewan, Stony Plain, Sherwood Park, Leduc, Gibbons, Beaumont, Devon, and Nisku.

      Maternity Sessions | Edmonton Maternity Photographer | St. Albert Maternity Photographer

      My passion for photography doesn’t stop at newborns…I also photograph your beautiful maternity/pregnancy photos.  Maternity Sessions are usually scheduled within the 7th and 8th month, when you belly is like a basketball, not too big and not too small.  It is also a time where Mom’s feel their best, energy is up, and you haven’t started to retain water.  My pledge to you is to make you look stunning and glowing in your photographs.  All of my maternity sessions are held in my home studio, located in St. Albert, Alberta, or on location.  My goal is to make you feel comfortable and at ease during your pregnancy photography session.   I will use my studio lights to light my subjects perfectly.  During my outdoor pregnancy sessions, I will use the natural light from the sun.

      Child Photo Sessions (any age)| Edmonton Children Photographer | St. Albert Child Photographer

      I also offer children photography sessions for all ages.  The next best time to photograph you child after they are born is the “sitter stage”.  This is around the 6-9 month mark, where your child is sitting up unassisted.  This session will allow me to photograph your child’s unique personality, with many great expressions, but they will not crawl away from me!!!  I also photograph ANY age of your child…you can never have too many photos of your children, don’t look back and regret not taking enough.

      Cake Smash Sessions | Edmonton Cake Smash Photographer | St. Albert Cake Smash Photographer

      Over the last few years, having a 1st birthday photography session has grown in popularity!  The photography world has labeled this a “1st Birthday Cake Smash”   What is that you ask?  Well it is a photo session where you dress you little sweetheart who is turning one in a fun outfit, buy a cake, and bring them to me to do the rest!!!  I will set up a fun set with balloons and tissue pom poms and any other fun props that will coordinate with your cake and outfit, and we let you toddler explore or SMASH the cake!  Surprisingly it is easier said than done!  Most babies are NOT interested in eating cake or getting messy.  There is usually a lot of coaxing and manipulating the scene to get the little ones to have a little fun with it!   Don’t get me wrong, there are some babies that go to town on that cake and LOVE IT, but that would be the exception.  Dawn offers a couple options for a milestone birthday.  First, you can simple do a mini cake smash session, or you can do a full session with several outfit changes and backdrops with a cake smash at the end.  This is a great time to celebrate your child turning one and capturing their little expressions before they move into the toddler years.  It is absolutely adorable to see them with their cake, asking them to dig in when all we have done in the past view months, is try to teach them not to be messy!  Such a fun time!

      I also provide headshot / model photography.  I will make you look beautiful and help you stylize your session to suit the needs of your audience.  I typically work out of my home studio but can also do on-location sessions as well.


      I am so glad you are here!   My home photography studio is located in St. Albert, Alberta where I focus on fine art newborn, maternity, and baby portraiture.  I am often told you must LOVE photographing newborn babies, and my answer is YES, YES, YES!  To be a professional full-time newborn photographer is the ultimate dream job.

      After newborns, I love to capture the “Sitters” stage, babies between 6-8 months old, and then the 1st birthday celebration cake smash at one year!

      I have photographed over 1500+ families to date, in business since 2001, and is experienced  in keeping newborns sleepy and calm, toddlers happy and smiling, and families having fun!  I would love if you give me the opportunity to photograph your beautiful baby bump, your tiny newborn, your toddler, or your beautiful family.
