“OUR LIFE TOGETHER HAS JUST BEGUN. YOU’RE PART OF ME, MY LITTLE ONE”

01. Edmonton Newborn Photographer

Congrats on your new bundle of joy!

THE BOND

The arrival of a newborn brings an indescribable sense of joy and wonder, marking the beginning of a unique and precious bond between parent and child. This special connection has tender moments, from the gentle caress of a tiny hand to the soothing comfort of a lullaby. Edmonton Newborn Photography offers a beautiful way to capture these fleeting moments, preserving them in timeless images reflecting the love and affection shared between you and your baby.

DETAILS

Every detail is carefully crafted in my St. Albert studio newborn to highlight the delicate features and expressions of your little one. I will capture the softness of their skin, the peacefulness of their sleep, and the innocence in their eyes to create stunning portraits that celebrate the beauty of a new life and the profound emotional connection that is already forming.

LASTING MEMORIES

By capturing these early days with a professional Edmonton photographer, we will create a lasting keepsake that will bring back the warmth and love of these moments for years to come. Each photograph tells a story of tenderness, devotion, and the beginning of the lifelong journey together.

It was worth every penny to be able to have these precious memories forever.

02. THE PROCESS

EXPERIENCE MATTERS: TRUST IN A FULL-TIME PRO!

As a mom of two and a seasoned photographer with over 24 years of experience, I bring knowledge and expertise to every session. I’ve perfected my skills through countless workshops, conferences, and collaborations with fellow photographers. When you choose me, you choose reliability and professionalism from a trusted photography business established in 2001.

WHEN DO I BOOK A NEWBORN SESSION?

Ideally, the best time to book an Edmonton newborn Ideally, the best time to book an Edmonton newborn photography session is right after your 1st trimester. The sooner you book, the better to ensure you get a spot. I typically book a minimum of 3 months in advance. I will need a $100 non-refundable deposit to book a session to secure your place. The balance of the package is due on the day of the session.

WHEN DO YOU TAKE PHOTOS OF YOUR NEWBORN BABY?

Most newborn photo sessions are done within the first 14 days of life as your baby is still sleepy and can curl up into certain positions.

CONSULTATION

I will have you provide information to help me figure out your style and the colours your eye is attracted to. I will then give you all the details to prepare for the day.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR SESSION:

After you receive your confirmation, we can start planning the theme, style preferences, and what you are trying to achieve with your milestone session. I will help you select the cake and coordinate the outfit preparations. Additionally, I will provide tips to ensure your child is ready for a successful cake smash session.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING: CAPTURING BABY’S ESSENCE!

I prefer photographing newborns within 6-14 days of life, ensuring those adorable sleepy poses and curled-up moments. If the baby arrives early or late, give me a shout, and we’ll adjust the schedule accordingly. Your comfort and convenience are my top priorities!

WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS: WELCOME TO MY STUDIO!

Step into my cozy home studio in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada (Oakmont area), where creativity knows no bounds. Equipped with top-notch props, backdrops, and studio lights, I create the perfect ambiance for capturing your baby’s beauty. Please sit back and relax while I work my magic with your little one.

ARRIVAL

When the baby arrives, you will be greeted with a very warm temperature, soothing sounds from my baby sound maker, and my gentle “baby whisper” hands. I will take the baby from you at the door so that you can relax and enjoy refreshments and snacks from my coffee bar.

SAFETY FIRST: YOUR BABY’S WELL-BEING IS MY PRIORITY!

At our studio, your newborn’s safety is our absolute priority. With extensive safety training and years of hands-on experience, I am committed to providing your little one with a safe and comfortable experience. Each pose and prop is handled with care, ensuring your baby’s well-being at all times.

DURING THE SESSION, PATIENCE IS KEY!

I’ll guide your baby through various poses and setups, capturing every tiny detail and sweet expression. From naked shots to wrapped snugly in blankets, I’ll take my time to ensure perfection. And don’t worry if the baby needs a break – I’m all about flexibility and catering to their needs.

A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE: FAMILY LOVE CAPTURED!

We’ll wrap up the session with heartwarming family photos that portray the love and joy filling the room. This entire process typically takes 2-3 hours for a full session, but I’m not one to rush. Mini sessions take about 1 hour. Your comfort and satisfaction are my top priorities, so we’ll take all the time we need to create magical memories together!

AFTER THE SESSION?

Within two weeks after your session appointment, you’ll receive a link to a preview of your online gallery from your newborn session. From here, you choose your favourite images based on the package you selected. You have an option to purchase additional photos if you wish.


Hey there, soon-to-be parents! Get ready for a photo session like no other – a chance to capture your newborn’s uniqueness in stunning portraits. Once you’ve secured your spot with a non-refundable deposit, I’ll send you a detailed guide to prepare for the session.

05. GOT SOME QUESTIONS?


Hey there, future parents! When do you book your newborn photo session? The answer is simple: the sooner, the better! While there is no such thing as booking too early, it can lead to missed opportunities. Newborn sessions tend to fill up fast, often months in advance. To secure your spot and ensure priority scheduling, booking as early as possible is best.

Newborns are at their sleepiest and most flexible during the first 14 days of life, making this the perfect window for capturing those adorable, curled-up poses. Aim to schedule your session between days 5 and 10 after delivery for the best results. This timeframe ensures sleepy, cooperative babies and helps avoid any potential baby acne that may start to appear around the two-week mark.

All newborn sessions take place in my cozy home studio in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada. I serve Edmonton, Leduc, Fort Saskatchewan, and surrounding areas, and my studio is conveniently located within an hour’s drive of these locations. After booking your session, I will tentatively schedule it for approximately one week after your due date. It’s important to be flexible, as babies don’t always arrive on time. If the baby arrives early or late, please call or email me, and we will adjust the timing accordingly.

Plan for your newborn photo session to last around two hours (unless it’s a mini newborn session, expect 1 hour), allowing plenty of time for feedings, cuddles, and soothing breaks. I never rush sessions and only book one per day to ensure a relaxed, comfortable environment for both baby and parents. And don’t worry about props—I’ve got you covered with a wide array of blankets, wraps, headbands, and more.

To help things run smoothly, keep your baby awake for an hour or two before the session and bathe them beforehand. It’s also a good idea to feed the baby before you arrive and remember to bring along a bottle of formula or pumped milk and a pacifier to soothe the baby. And remember, less is more when it comes to clothing – a simple zipper sleeper is all your newborn needs to look picture-perfect.

I will accommodate all requests for unique newborn photography shots with siblings. Please see the pricing for additional charges. Remember that small children are challenging to work with when we add a newborn into the mix. I take the newborn’s safety very seriously; depending on your older child, it may or may not work out.
