Michelle Jackson Photography
Edmonton Newborn Photographer
I am an Edmonton newborn, maternity, baby, cake smash, and family photographer with over 8 years of professional experience. I have been offering custom photography since 2012.
I have completed years of training in newborn safety, posing, lighting, and editing to provide my clients with the high-quality custom work they deserve. If you are searching for a custom newborn baby photographer in the Edmonton area, I would be happy to discuss my process with you!
I have been trusted for many years by families in the Edmonton area to capture their precious newborn. My passion has allowed me to photograph over 300 newborns! I absolutely adore each session and the honour that comes with being chosen to capture such a special time in my client’s lives. My newborn baby sessions feature styling, posing, and props that are colorful and vibrant, yet timeless. The posing I do with babies is very natural. My goal is to have the imagery complement your beautiful newborn and not distract with enormous props or awkward posing that overwhelm the baby. I focus on the tiny and fresh features of the baby, the bond of the new family, and the excitement to be beginning a new chapter together.
It’s important to capture the family together in the first few days! Older siblings are always welcome to join in the session and be photographed with their new brother or sister. My Leduc in-home studio is stocked with beautiful props for my clients to choose from, as I feel it’s incredibly important to include the parents in the styling of the newborn session. There is comfortable seating to relax in while I focus on capturing all the tiny, adorable features of your new baby! After your baby is photographed, my custom hand editing and portrait retouching is applied to each photo to make each image a work of art you will be proud to display in your home for years to come. Celebrating the birth of a baby is one of life’s most precious moments! Please contact Michelle Jackson Photography today to book your newborn’s custom photography session.
EDMONTON MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER
I specialize in maternity photography in the Edmonton area. My maternity photography sessions focus on the excitement of the baby’s arrival, the undeniable beauty of the mother during this special time, and the love shared between the expecting parents. Maternity photography captures a fleeting moment in time before you meet your child, and these photos of your pregnancy are very special. My style is rich and vibrant, with a mixture of posed and candid imagery.
Maternity sessions occur outdoors to capture the beauty of the season that you welcome your baby into the world. I offer these sessions year-round in winter, autumn, spring, and summer. Maternity clients are welcome to use any of the maternity gowns in my collection to complement their beautiful belly. Siblings are always welcome to join in, as it’s an exciting time for them as well!
EDMONTON FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
Photos of your family are a treasure that you will never regret investing in! Whether you are just starting out as a young family, or whether your children are all grown, the images I create will bring a smile to your face as you enjoy them for years to come. My family photography sessions are fun and relaxed, and the images produced are classic, timeless, and beautiful depictions of a moment in time shared by your family. I have photographed all sizes of families-even up to 40 people at once! I am available for large extended family sessions, as well as sessions for new families just starting out.
Family photo sessions occur at various parks in the Edmonton area. I have a list of locations that I provide to my clients so that they can select their favourite spot for the session. I typically photograph families as close to sunset as possible so that we can get the most flattering golden light for your session. Most young families have children with early bedtimes, so an autumn family session is best for them, as the sun sets early at that time of year. For families with older children, I can offer a spring or summer family session when the sun sets much later in the evening. I also offer winter family sessions for the adventurous family looking for something more unique for their photos!
EDMONTON CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHER
Let’s celebrate your child’s first birthday in style! Happy birthday to your baby! I offer custom cake smash photography with many options and themes to choose from to suit your needs. I offer a wide selection of backdrops and themes to choose from for the cake smash session. There is also the option to have a completely custom cake smash with a theme of your choosing. There are options to include formal ‘clean’ portraits of your birthday boy/girl, family and sibling photos, and a bubble bath for clean up after the cake smash. If you aren’t sure whether your child will enjoy cake, we can do a smash centered around pancakes, watermelon, or spaghetti. The options are endless! We could even do a non-edible theme featuring your child painting on a canvas. A cake smash photo session often brings joy for years to come as you look back at the images when your child is no longer a baby. These first birthday cake smash sessions are available to clients in Edmonton, Leduc, Sherwood Park and surrounding areas. Sessions will occur in my in-home studio, located in Leduc.
EDMONTON BABY MILESTONE PHOTOGRAPHER
I also offer in-studio milestone sessions for babies! These baby milestone sessions are great for babies aged 6-12 months old. My clients select backdrops and props from my large collection to style the session with. I love photographing children and I enjoy creating images that the entire family will love to look back on!
