Dawn Weir’s passion for photography doesn’t stop at newborns…she also photographs your beautiful maternity/pregnancy photos and all your babies milestones.  Maternity Sessions are held within the 7th and 8th month, and typical baby photo sessions are around the 6 month mark, (sitting up but not crawling), and the 1st year birthday and cake smash session!


Dawn works with families all over Alberta, including the Edmonton Area, St. Albert, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc, Beaumont, Spruce Grove, Legal, Morinville, Sherwood Park, Stony Plain, Devon and as far as Fort McMurray 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!


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!
