Calgary, Alberta Lifestyle Family Photographer

Family, Maternity and Newborn Photography

Your family is beautiful. There is nothing better than the way you naturally interact with your children, the way you hold them and look at them. You are beautiful, and I will always encourage you to embrace your natural beauty.

And this is what lifestyle family photography is all about. Real life, real moments, real emotions captured in photos that you truly recognize yourself in. And none of those fake smiles for the camera!

Family and Newborn Sessions From the Blog

Olivia

An in-home lifestyle newborn session filled with so many sister snuggles and puppy kisses! And a great example of what you can expect from your in-home newborn session.

Tash and Joe’s Family

A gorgeous extended family session in the Kananaskis. And with a little creativity, we created some really beautiful group portraits, while maintaining proper physical distancing between cohorts.

Mountain Family Session

When this family and I got to Kananaskis Country, we were greeted by the most beautiful fog that turned everything teal. It was the perfect morning for a lifestyle family photo session in the mountains.

“Love Val’s work, her sense of style and her great eye for capturing genuine moments in a beautiful shot. The experience with her and the photos after are a testament to her great skills as a photographer. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for photos in and around the Calgary area.”

The Girl

Behind the

Camera

I started off my photography journey hiking to mountain tops and traveling with a point and shoot camera in tow. Years later, my passion became a career, and now I get to follow families through life, capturing their most important memories.

I will get to know you, learn to follow your cues and guide you with a strong attention to detail to make you feel comfortable, look your best and capture genuine photos that reflect the true beauty and uniqueness of your family. I am a very dynamic photographer and love creating images filled with lively interactions. Which is usually a hit with the kiddos since I am all about exploring and having fun for real, and none of that pretending to have fun for the camera!
