If you’re looking for a professional photographer to capture your baby bump(maternity photos), your newborn baby (6-10 days), sitter stage (6-9 months), first birthday cake smash, and your family as it grows through every stage, then you have come to the right place! I want to build a relationship with you and your family to create lasting memories year after year for you to cherish over a lifetime.
NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY EDMONTON
I have been specializing in newborn photography for over 15 years out of my St. Albert home studio. I will create for each of my clients unique stunning baby art once baby arrives within the first 10 days of life. I will provide all the props, outfits, flowers, hats, etc. all you need to do is bring baby to the studio, I will do the rest!
It is important to book your newborn photo shoot 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 infant photography is soft, modern and sophisticated with a pop of color. My clients come from all over the Edmonton area including Morinville, Spruce Grove, Fort Saskatchewan, Stony Plain, Sherwood Park, Leduc, Gibbons, Beaumont, Devon, and Nisku.
Over the last few years, having a 1st birthday photography cake smash 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 work with you to decide on a theme that suits your child’s personality. I will then 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. 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!
My passion for photography doesn’t stop at newborns…I also photograph your beautiful pregnancy photos. My maternity portraits try to convey the beauty of a woman’s body. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman’s body creating another life. We need to embrace our natural beauty and I know I can make you look at yourself it a different light with my artistic poses and beautiful maternity gowns that you are welcome to use from my personal collection.
Maternity Sessions are usually scheduled within the 7th and 8th month, when your 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 outside all year round. 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.
I also offer children monthly photos 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 type of 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.
I also work with families all over the Edmonton Area to create beautiful artistic personalized artistic images that you will cherish forever. Dawn loves to take photos on location in the outdoors! It is the best lighting for family photography. Dawn’s sessions are relaxed and fun and allow your child to explore his/her surroundings and provide the most natural environment to capture their little personalities and the dynamic of your family!
EDMONTON HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER / EDMONTON MODEL PHOTOGRAPHER
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!
