A Bit About Us


Hi there! We are Shauna and Gareth Roughley – the husband and wife photographers behind Roughley Originals Photography. We have been photographing maternity and newborns for a long time, but we truly understand the magnitude of these sessions now that we are parents. When we became parents, everything changed, and our whole view of how we needed to photograph our sessions became clear.

We’re a team in every aspect of the word. We’re married, we’re raising two amazing boys, and we both work full time in this crazy photography biz.

Roughley Originals About Us

Maternity


You’re creating a life. Growing your family. Your body has done more than you ever imagined it could. Maternity photos are about capturing this fleeting time in your life. Your body has changed and transformed for the child you’re bringing into the world.

We encourage dad and siblings to be part of the session. This is all about family!

Newborn


We’re parents too. We get it. This tiny baby is brand new, you’re still getting the hang of things, you’re nervous and not sure what to expect. These photos are all about the connection in the family. Welcoming this brand new person into your fold. About capturing this fleeting transition time. This is why we choose to work on the family photographs first. You and your baby – your family, your connection, your kinship.

Parents are a must for our sessions. Siblings as well. We want to show the family, the love, intertwined and together. The photos from your session will be something to treasure for years to come. It is so important to have the family in the photos. I know it’s hard to fathom how you’re going to get your hair and makeup done, but trust me you’ll be happy you got some photos with your new baby. It’s your first family photo. We love sibling shots too, so they will be a part of the session as well.

Newborn sessions typically last between 2-4 hours. Every baby is different, so we give you tons of time to give your baby what they need.

The ideal time to photograph your newborn is 10-14 days old.

During your session your baby will probably:

  • Eat a lot more than normal.
  • They might be fussy.
  • We keep our studio hot so they might sleep the whole session.
  • They might not sleep at all.

They’re newborns! We work with what they need to do. 

Trust me, we’ve been there. We have photographed so many newborns now, nothing surprises us. There will be messes. I might get peed on. Chances are our blankets will get dirty. Don’t worry about it. Sit back, relax on the couch, and let us do our thing.


Choosing Your Session Style


Roughley originals Photography offers two kinds of sessions for documenting this unique moment in your child’s life. Choose between a lifestyle portrait session or a posed studio session. 

Studio Sessions

Posed newborn photos take time, fineness and patience. There are tons of small details we watch for, tons of little adjustments we make to ensure the photos are perfect. The props we use are minimal, so the focus stays on your baby. We provide all of the blankets, hats and headbands we need to make your photos gorgeous, but you are more than welcome to bring sentimental objects to your session. Your studio session will take 2-4 hours to get those beautiful, perfect newborn photos. You just have to show up with your baby, and your outfits (a change of clothes is a definite suggestion!). We’ll take care of the rest.


Lifestyle Sessions

Casual lifestyle portrait sessions in your home last anywhere from 2 to 3 hours

We find that lifestyle portraits are an ideal way to portray the raw emotion of the moment. Candid images, unposed, artistically capture things just as they are; real moments frozen in time for you and your family to enjoy over and over. We encourage the whole family to be involved, with shots of mom and dad, siblings, and even the family pet interacting with baby! Lifestyle sessions do not require as much time as a posed session, and are ideal for fussy babies who have difficulty falling asleep. A typical lifestyle session lasts anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, depending on baby.

If you’re having trouble deciding which type of session you’d like, please contact us with any questions – we’ll be happy to work with you one on one to create beautiful and meaningful heirloom imagery!

Kind Words from Our Clients


Melissa

We were so impressed with Shauna and Gareth! They did our newest little one’s newborn photos as well as some family photos. I was so grateful for the way in which they were patient and creative with our toddler. They made something that I was originally anxious about, (trying to get her to sit still and smile), actually fun! Also, watching them position and work with my newborn was amazing…they were so gentle and skillful about the way they cared for him during the experience. Shauna and Gareth were professional and quick to respond to emails in the follow up. Most importantly though, our photos turned out beautifully. They captured our precious littles and our family in a way that I’m so grateful to have for the future.

Jenna

Incredible! We had newborn and family photos with Shauna and Gareth and they really blew us away with our session. This was our first time meeting them, but they instantly felt like old friends. They were so great with our very busy toddler and the whole session was very relaxed and comfortable. They gladly incorporated some very personal touches for us and we are thrilled with our photos. You can really tell that a whole lot of love goes into what they do. Highly recommend!

Jessie

We booked with Roughly Originals for our Maternity, Newborn, 6 month and 1 Year photos. Shauna and Gareth are incredibly talented and easy to work with. They made us feel comfortable and have great open lines of communication. Our photos are beautiful and unique. We will use them for all family photos from this point out. They also shoot beautiful weddings and engagements. Highly recommend in Edmonton and Area
