HELLO. My name is DAWN WEIR and I’m a




      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.

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

      Dawn Weir’s passion for photography doesn’t stop at newborns…she also photographs 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.  During my St. Albert studio sessions, 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 prefer my sessions to be held close to sunrise OR sunset.  Once you have booked your maternity session with me, I will provide you detailed instructions on what to wear, bring, makeup, and hair.

      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 Dawn to do the rest!!!  Dawn 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!
