Your Story

is beautiful

portrait of photographer Kristen Holm

Calgary Newborn & Family Photographer

Hello! I'm Kristen

I get it. The time we have with our children is never enough.

The days can be incredibly long and yet the years seem so short. One day, they are tiny babies in your arms and the next you are sending them off to school. They grow up so fast. You want to remember it all. Those rosy little cheeks, chubby thigh rolls, soft baby curls and wide eyes filled with childlike wonder. 

My personal experience with motherhood has inspired me to focus on photographing families, newborns and small children. I am a sentimental romantic who loves life’s little luxuries. Alone time, fresh flowers, date nights with my husband, handmade gifts and strong cocktails fill my life with joy.

Let’s capture this exciting moment in your family’s story and turn it into art you will cherish for years to come.

If any of this sounds good to you I’d love to get you some more information. Simply click the button below to get instant details/pricing on a photo shoot with me sent straight to your inbox.

Documenting the time when your kids are small is something you will never regret

I'm here to help you slow down, drink it all in and appreciate life with small children. I shoot simple, candid and honest family photos. Instead of asking you to smile and look at the camera, I will capture real connection, authentic emotion and lots of family snuggles

It would be my honour to take my family's photographs. Let's document this exciting time in your life and create portraits that tell your family's story. I know these photographs will become heirlooms that you and your children will cherish for years to come. 

Let’s Capture Natural Newborn and Family Photographs

Together, we will document your life in the spaces and places that are most significant to you. I love photographing families at home. In your favourite sunny corner, on your front porch, in your kids bedrooms or under that lilac tree you love in the back yard.

We could also venture further afield and spend some time out and about in Calgary. I’d love to check out your regular brunch or coffee spot, the park where your kids run free or maybe explore a favourite hike or family cabin.
