Who am I?

My name is Katie and I am a maternity, newborn, baby, cake smash, child and family photographer servicing Edmonton, Alberta and area. I have a cozy and comfortable home studio in the west end of Edmonton that is fully stocked with props, accessories and backdrops of every kind. I also offer outdoor sessions or on-location lifestyle sessions in my clients homes. I have studied under some of the best newborn photographers in Canada, have many years of experience, and always make safety my first priority.

During a session with me, whether outdoors, in my home studio,  or in your home, I can guarantee you will find yourself relaxing and having fun in no time. While there will always be a bit of posing/directing involved, I also focus on taking images of you acting naturally which is when I feel that your true spirit and personality shines. I would describe my style of photography as pure, natural, and timeless. I am attracted to all things vintage, but I like to add a modern touch through the use of colour as well. I think this combination is what gives me my unique perspective and style.

Photographing babies and children is my passion, and I would love to capture that new, raw, and powerful love for your baby so that you can treasure those photographs for years to come. I am a mom myself, and I think that gives me an added advantage to relating to what my clients are going through and taking good care of their precious little ones during a session with me.

Photography is something I have always loved, as it very much goes hand in hand with graphic design, and I have been a graphic designer for over 10 years and a professional full-time photographer for over 5 years.

So that’s the business side of me… but what about the fun side? I love to go to the movies with my hubby or for walks with him, our son, and our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. In fact, if you come to my home studio for a consult or session, you will likely meet my dog Lucy who is the calmest, sweetest, loving dog you will ever meet. I also love to read late into the night on my Kindle (when I am not editing that is!), and hang out with friends. I love animals of all kinds and my vices include Diet Pepsi, chocolate covered pretzels, and spending wayyy too much time on social media. My favourite TV show of all time has to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I have read the entire Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon at least 4-5 times. So yeah, I’m definitely not afraid to embrace my inner geek.
