katt van den Oever
I'm Katt! I specialize in Newborn photography, serving the Central Alberta area. Most of my clients come from Calgary, Airdrie and Red Deer. My studio is located in Carstairs, AB. I am about 40 minutes North of Calgary and 40 minutes South of Red Deer!
My favourite moment to capture is just hours after birth in my Hello, baby! sessions. Although, yes. It's an odd time for parents and families to have a complete stranger in that hospital room during such an intimate moment, I am always so honoured to be there to document it for them. Those first few hours are moments you will never get back. Your baby will never look so fresh and new again.
On the other end of the spectrum, posed newborn photography is also something I am really passionate about. I obsess over the little details in making everything perfect. Every set up and pose takes lots of time and patients to get just right. I love earthy and neutral tones with lots of texture and soft moody light.
Outside of photography, you will likely find me at home or out and about with my own babies (who are not babies anymore) I love nothing more than spending time with my family. My husband, daughter and son. As well as our three fur babies!
I look forward to working with you and your family in capturing your own memories to share for years to come.
“I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.” - Anne Geddes
