Are you expecting soon?  A HUGE congrats to you on your impending arrival!  It’s such a busy time for you, not to mention all the preparation that goes along with the changes that happen to your busy, your lifestyle and your emotions! You have a lot on your plate and perhaps a maternity or newborn session is one of the things you’d like to do.  Whether this is your first or last pregnancy, it’s like no other.  Overwhelmed?  It’s natural, don’t worry, but know that I am here to help make things as smooth and amazing as possible for you.  While I can’t help in the running to the bathroom department every few minutes I CAN let you know that deciding to do a custom photography session in home is one the the most unique ways you can share and document this milestone in your life.

This little lady was documented recently in the comfort of her own home.  She was wide awake, and going through a growth spurt.  She loved being held by mom and dad and sung too. Which was amazing to watch her new parents dote over her, to see the connection and watch her curiosity in her new environment.  Welcome Nellie.

We are more than half way through January. A new year brings a lot to our plates. A fresh start, new outlook on life both personal and in business and time to reflect on what your goals are for the upcoming year. How has your January been treating you?  Did you start it off with a bang? Or are you more the type to take things as they come?
Me you ask?  I am a planner.  Borderline OCD at times lol!  Those that know me know I am a perfectionist at heart.  Speaking of heart…this is why I do what I do.  I lead with my heart and know that all I do, is because I am a strong believer of putting others first.  Building that trust, taking the time to get to know you and your wants and needs and this resonates in WHY I do what I do.

The clarity, confidence and passion I have for my business will be shared with you.  So if I am lucky enough to photograph you or your family, know that I will evoke emotion during the session and after through lifelong heirloom photography.

The session below was such an amazing calm, beautiful newborn session that we made grandma cry!  🙂 All good of course annnd you can bet that I gave her a hug as I passed her some tissues 😉

Meet Savannah at 9 days old.  8lbs of adorable curious sweetness.  This baby girl is so loved already and I can’t wait to watch her grow.  Thanks to mama and grandma for loving her newborn experience and gushing over all the details throughout her time in studio. Shannon, enjoy. You are a natural new mom and simply radiant.  Remember to be kind to yourself and embrace all the new “firsts”days ahead!



“If you could make one wish for your baby, and you knew it would come true, what would it be?”

    ?? I can’t even express how I feel about our photos you really are amazing at what you do Petra .. I love them so much I can’t wait to see the rest my baby girl is just so perfect thank you again

What makes you happy? A smile? A hug or kiss?  The way someone makes you feel?

Whatever it is don’t let it go unnoticed.  Life is too busy these days but there are moments in time, pages in a book or beautiful photographs that really speak to our soul.  Soul mates that get you…no matter wherever you are in your life.  Tell them how you feel. Connections are so important for me.  It’s equally important to get to know my clients.  So that no matter what they hired me for, I want them to forget about being in front of the camera and prompt them to be in the moment.  Or to relive moments together (new birth, baby clapping or expecting a new arrival) all on their own while I am quietly capturing milliseconds of their life.

Thank you all for your kind words.  It’s WHY I do what I do.  I don’t do it to be in the spotlight, but rather to know that I have made someone happy.  I don’t like to boast or spew out every win…instead I prefer to be humble and so very blessed to be able to pursue my passion and love of Photography and my business.

Hello everyone!  So…how was your Christmas holidays?  Exhausting but good?  Yep…me too.  I am looking forward to getting back into a routine. Okay…who am I kidding I have already started for myself anyhow.  Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE Christmas but this year was especially busy.  New home (we moved back in October) and as always lots of entertaining and way too much food.

During this time though it’s allowed me to focus and dive into some new projects for 2017.  It’s also pushed me to do some soul searching. To get back to my WHY.  But that’s a whole other blog post all on it’s own. 🙂

Today’s post is about social media.  We are all on it (to some degree) and it’s everywhere.  The ease of finding information at your fingertips is so important. Especially in a world as fast paced as ours.  In case you didn’t know, Petra King Photography can be found on some of my favourite platforms.  You can find me on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.  If you are already following…Thank you!  I LOVE having you along with me in this journey.  I also LOVE seeing you and watching you and your families grow too.  As always…welcome!  Here is to a wonderful 2017!

Thanks for your love and support on a daily basis. You really are my inspiration!
