Booking Your Newborn Session Watch Me Grow Photography 》Calgary Newborn and Family Photographer


This is such a special time of life and no doubt the coming year will be filled with amazing experiences and precious moments as you welcome a new little one into your family!

Bringing home a new baby, your whole world changes. The phrase "moments are fleeting" takes on a new meaning as you begin to understand just how quickly time passes with your precious little one. Babies change and grow so quickly - especially in those early days of their life.

I recommend booking your newborn session as far in advance as you can. Typically these sessions are held when baby is between 7 and 14 days fresh.

I am so excited and incredibly honoured that you are considering booking your newborn session with me. Booking a newborn session will help you capture those moments in time ..... moments that you will never get back. These are more than just photographs, these are pieces of artwork for your family that will grow in value. It brings me so much joy to know that you and your children will be able to look back and treasure these memories for years to come.

Your Session Experience

Watch Me Grow Photography doesn't just provide family’s with their moments frozen in time but also an experience! One that mimics going out for coffee with an old friend, or game night giggles with the family. It’s a time for you to shine and be treated as a VIP.

My goal with each session is to make things as seamless as possible for you. The days following a birth can be a whirlwind of activity and emotions - so think of your newborn session as a time to slow down and savor some quiet moments with your new baby.

Personalized Service

I believe that when you hire a photographer, it should be someone who you connect with ..... feel comfortable with - that's what I strive for. When you decide to work with me, you will receive the highest level of client care and I also hope that you will see me as a friend through this experience.

Most importantly, leave the stressful part of putting together a workflow to me! The studio is stocked with plenty of high quality props, blankets, wraps, outfits, hats, tie-backs, floor drops and accessories. (I am always on the look out to add more to my collection) I co-ordinate each session to correspond with the colors of your home, nursery or families portrait outfits. All you have to worry about is what you and your family are going to wear.

"Simple Portraiture"

My style is simple and relaxed. If you are reading this, chances are you have already had an opportunity to view my portfolio, and that something spoke to you about my style. As a newborn photographer, I absolutely LOVE capturing images that are fresh, clean and timeless

I am not one to force baby into un-natural / trendy poses. I follow the cues baby is telling me. If my style of photography resonates with you, then I just might be the perfect photographer for your newborn session.

Please note, I only book a small amount of newborn sessions each month to ensure you receive the maximum of my time, attention and ability. These spots fill up fast as I am typically am booked a few months in advanced.
