A simple studio.
Being in Alberta, we often witness snow one minute, then sun, then rain, then snow, then sun again! Well, maybe not dramatic, but with all the changes in conditions, it makes having a beautiful, consistent environment to photograph in, very important to me. And so my new studio was born!
Let’s spend some time together.
Your journey with me often begins with you first booking a maternity session. I have an ever growing maternity gown wardrobe that helps mom simply arrive with hair and makeup done, and I take care of the rest. We even offer custom floral headpieces that can be added to a maternity session or milk bath addition.
Next up, are the newborn photos. Hooray! Baby is here! A newborn session is best booked within the first fourteen days of baby’s birth, while they are still tiny and sleepy. I photograph newborns in a natural and unposed way that allows the baby to shine, with no need for buckets or gigantic headbands. I want my clients to proudly display my timeless images on their wall for generations to come. Big brothers and big sisters are very proud to show off their new family addition, so even to capture a quick kiss on the forehead is an accomplishment for some two year olds!
Over Three Months
When baby is over three months, they begin to show some real personality. Those big smiles, frowns, funny faces and tummy time is a favourite milestone to photograph. Parents and siblings are always welcome in any baby photo session.
On to the next big milestone! Sitting! I advise parents that if baby is at the six month mark or older, it’s best to wait for photos until they are sturdy sitters! Having a little one sit on my studio bed or even in a vintage high chair makes for some classic images grandparents are proud to share. We’ve recently began introducing baby milk bath sessions complete with flowers and greenery to add even more of a Vintage Duck nature inspired signature look. See more photos from milk bath here.
Let’s eat some cake! One year old session are a popular time for the entire family. We start with some sweet cuddles with mom and dad, portraits for the birthday girl or boy and then the messy cake smash often ending in the tiny tub! Check out a recent one year old session video here.
Our friendship doesn’t end here!
After spending a year of getting to know each other I will be there for your updated fall family photos, mini sessions during the holidays and limited edition sessions available throughout the year.
