When some of our very best friends have a baby, and they ask us to document her arrival into their amazing family, you better believe I squealed! I was SO excited to photograph Nora’s Edmonton newborn session, for so many reasons. First off, just because I love them so much! Quality time with this family is always welcome. Second, I knew the older girls would be so easy to work with. Third, since we were all just hanging out with friends, it gave us the chance to try some new lighting techniques, and just play around a bit with posing. Nora’s Edmonton newborn session was so relaxed and such a nice catch up time!
We love you all so much, and Nora already has all our love too! Thank you so much for coming to the studio to hang out, for trusting us to document your wonderful family, and for being the absolute best friends.

Some common questions we get asked about newborn photography:
- When should we book newborn photos?
The sooner the better! Especially in the summer, when our season is busy, it can be hard to squeeze in last minute inquiries. We typically get bookings anytime from 12 week-30 weeks. And sometimes after baby is born! We will always try to accommodate everyone, but to guarantee a booking, please inquire before baby is born.
- How can we book a date when we don’t know when baby is coming?
We choose a tentative date based on your due date, to make sure you are you in our calendar. Once baby comes, then we confirm the day, change it if we need to, and get you booked in.
- When should newborn photos be done?
Newborns are best photographed between 7-15 days old. As they get older, they are less sleepy, more alert, and less mouldable. Things happen though! We understand that – so if we need to book in a bit later than that, we will!
- Can we request poses or colours for our session?
Yes, absolutely! We do ask for understanding that all poses are based on baby – sometimes some poses just don’t work out. But we will absolutely try our best!
- Are family photos included in the session?
Yes! Our full newborn sessions include family photos, sibling photos, just mom and dad. Those family photos are SO important – they’re your first family photographs!
