Hello, I'm Kristyn! I'm a wife to my wonderful husband, proud dog-mom to Millie the labradoodle, a lover of all things classic, gold and neutral. Oh, and I absolutely adore documenting families and the beautiful moments they share. After years of dreaming about a bright, beautiful studio space to call my own, I finally had the opportunity to bring this dream to life in 2020 when we built our new home in south Calgary. Studio Lumiere is an in-home studio space that is flooded with natural light and filled with charming decor and stylish accessories. I have been photographing newborns for 4 years, and recently also fell in love with documenting milestone sessions like cake smashes, intimate maternity sessions and "sitter" sessions. Having the studio has given me the opportunity to photograph families year round and establish Studio Lumiere as one of Calgary's top newborn & milestone photography studios. If you're looking for light, classic portraits to cherish for a lifetime, Studio Lumiere may be the right fit for your family.

I truly believe that family is the greatest gift there is - that is one of the reasons why I became a newborn and family photographer. There are so many important and wonderful moments to document... the anticipation of your baby's arrival and then finally becoming a parent, the way they fit so perfectly into your arms once they arrive, your fingers entwined with their tiny fingers and toes. They say the days are long but the years are short, and all of the sudden your tiny newborn is laughing, crawling, and showing their unique personality. You blink a few more times, and somewhere in between the never ending diaper changes, sleepless nights, moments of doubt, they're a year old and digging their little hands into their first birthday cake. There are so many special moments and milestones amongst the busyness of every day life, and I want to help you to document them. I also know that the last thing new parents have time for is shopping for picture-perfect outfits, creating albums, the list goes on! I am here for you, every step of the way.

TELLING THE STORY OF YOUR FAMILY

kind words

We had such a lovely experience working with Kristyn! She was so organized, very professional and most importantly, her photographs are absolutely beautiful! She scoped out the best spots for gorgeous lighting on a summer evening and was incredibly patient and sweet while capturing the most precious moments with our newborn twins. The photos are timeless and classic and we are so thankful to Kristyn for doing such a wonderful job!

Desiree - new mom of twins

Not only is Kristyn one of the most talented photographers in the industry, I've been privileged to get to know her as a friend. She is so sweet, kind and professional - not to mention patient (especially with little ones). It was our first time having professional family photos together and she made the whole process so enjoyable - we had no nerves whatsoever. We had SO much fun and I was overcome with emotion when we got our photos. Thank you, Kristyn, for being so lovely and for capturing these precious memories for us!

Kristyn has done our engagement, wedding and newborn photos. She has not only done exceptional work but also has been very professional, kind and patient throughout all of our shoots. Her photography has a soft and romantic feel and we've have received many compliments on all of our photos. I highly recommend trying her as your photographer!
