project 12 post #1 | Calgary photographer

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

This year I decided to jump in a project with a few other awesome photographers. The goal? Shooting one photo a month based off a word for ME. It’s something fun, something inspiring. I love seeing everyone’s interpretations of the same word. It is really neat to see how one word means so many different things to everyone.
Our first word was fresh.

Nothing says fresh to me like a beautiful sunrise. Every day we are given the opportunity to start fresh. We start out with a clean slate for the day the moment we wake up. And if we are lucky, we wake up to proof of that right out our front door. What a beautiful start to a day.

Now check out Heather’s take on fresh…. it’s pretty cute!

Newborn session special~Calgary newborn photography

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

I am so excited to delve even more deeply into the amazing world of newborn photography. I love everything about those squishy little bitty newborns. And I absolutely love creating beautiful photographs of tiny miracles to be treasured forever. There is something just so amazing about those few first days. The newness of it all. The joy. The love. The bonding. And I want to capture those moments, those feelings.

So I am offering 8 newborn sessions at a very heavily discounted price :) To get in on this special you must be due in Feb or March. The session must be booked with me to hold your spot when baby is born. The session has to take place when baby is 10 days or under.
The details:
$200 – full newborn session in my studio. 10 images full resolution of your choice from gallery on disc. All the images in your gallery can be purchased for an additional $150. This is big savings! Huge! So please… if you are looking for newborn photos shoot me an e-mail kjongstra@telus.net.
If you know someone expecting please send them my link for this special or

Just a few of my most recent session…. they are just so beautiful!! So thankful to be trusted with memories to last a lifetime. It is the best job in the world!

out to steal hearts | Calgary newborn photography

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

This little man is definitely out to steal your heart. He is so very cute, I could hardly stand to let him leave my house!!! He’s going to have people wrapped around that little thumb in no time!! You could see he already has Mom and Dad – hook line and sinker :) Such a beautiful family, so glad I had the pleasure of meeting you and the newest member of your family.

This has to be one of my favorite fabrics I have gotten recently. It looks amazing… the perfect baby boy blue :)

Mom brought this hat… isn’t it cute!! Bet it looked great for Christmas!!
