Calgary Family, Maternity and Newborn Photographer

Who is behind the camera

Hello! My name is Lana.

I am a portrait photographer based in Calgary, specializing in all types of family-oriented photography. This includes Newborn photography, Maternity photography, Family photography, Baby Milestone sessions, Cake smash sessions, Holiday mini sessions. I help families press the pause button on this beautiful and messy thing we call life to document the connections, joy, and laughter in everyday moments.

  • Being a mom shapes my work with understanding, extra care and attention. It's not just taking photos; it's sharing the beauty of being a parent.

  • Photography is my true passion, and it has always been a part of my life.

  • I turned my passion into a thriving heart-centered business in 2017 after one-on-one mentoring sessions, numerous courses, and a great shooting experience.

  • I received training as a newborn photographer through multiple professional courses held by industry experts, including Kelly Brown and Sue Bryce in baby safety and studio posing, as well as Emily Lucarz in in-home newborn session flow, among others.

Photo style


Storytelling is my most favourite form of documenting life.

I believe that the moments that happen when you are not looking are more authentic and that you'll love those captured moments forever because they show real connections and mood! But I also understand how important those posed or looking-into-the-camera shots can be. These portraits are perfect for printing and sharing with loved ones, and holiday cards. My sessions include both candid and posed photos, as long as it is needed and possible without disturbing your children's play.
