      Since 2005, when my first child arrived, I’ve been devoted to newborn photography in Edmonton. Focusing on capturing those initial 14 days of life, my goal is to produce beautiful and timeless baby portraits. I aim for a soft, modern, and sophisticated style, with pops of vibrant color to add interest. Each image is carefully crafted to be unique and unforgettable, ensuring they’ll be treasured for generations to come.

      In recent years, the trend of celebrating a child’s first birthday with a cake smash photography session has skyrocketed in popularity. This session, often referred to as a “1st Birthday Cake Smash,” offers a fun-filled opportunity to capture cherished memories. It involves dressing your little one in adorable attire, providing a cake, and joining me to capture the magic!

      Together, we’ll select a theme that perfectly reflects your child’s personality. The set will be embellished with balloons, tissue pom poms, and various props to complement the cake and attire. While some toddlers enthusiastically dive into the cake, others may need a bit of encouragement to embrace the mess. Nevertheless, it’s a joyous way to commemorate this significant milestone before they transition into the toddler years.

      Witnessing their priceless expressions as they interact with the cake is heartwarming and serves as a delightful contrast to our efforts to maintain cleanliness in previous months. Don’t miss out on capturing these precious moments before they outgrow them!

      Transitioning beyond newborns, my photography journey delves into the exquisite beauty of pregnancy. There’s nothing quite as remarkable as witnessing a woman’s body nurturing another life. Embracing this natural beauty is essential, and I’m dedicated to showcasing it through artistic poses and elegant maternity gowns from my personal collection.

      Edmonton Maternity Photography Sessions are ideally scheduled during the 7th and 8th months, when your belly resembles a basketball – not too big, not too small. It’s a time of heightened energy and before water retention begins. Rest assured, my commitment is to capture your radiant glow, ensuring each photograph reflects a newfound appreciation for your incredible journey.

      After the newborn stage, the “sitter stage” emerges as the next opportune moment to capture your child’s precious moments. Typically occurring between 6 to 9 months, this phase sees your little one sitting up unassisted, brimming with newfound independence and curiosity. During these sessions, I aim to encapsulate your child’s distinctive personality, capturing a plethora of heartwarming expressions and candid moments. Unlike the newborn stage, where they’re often swaddled and asleep, this stage offers a glimpse into their emerging character and individuality. Best of all, they’re unlikely to crawl away, allowing for a more relaxed and enjoyable photography experience. However, I don’t limit myself to specific ages – I’m equipped to photograph children of any age.

      As an Edmonton Child Photographer, every milestone, every fleeting moment deserves to be preserved in timeless images. After all, you can never have too many photos of your children; don’t let the opportunity slip away and regret not capturing enough memories to cherish for a lifetime.
