From planning your session to hanging your artwork,
I am there with you through every step of the process. You're in great hands.

The days are long,
but the years are short...

As a mom of two beautiful girls, I know how busy life can get and how easily portraits can get put on the back burner. But time doesn't stop for anyone and they will grow up quicker than you think.

+ Not sure what everyone should wear?
+ Overwhelmed by the whole process?

The next questions are how much will it cost and when can you schedule a session.

I get it, trust me. Not only do you want to leave with images you love, but it's important to print them, so they can be enjoyed for years to come.

Tips & investment

Meet Kristin Gowan

When I was a kid, I remember going to Olan Mills in Kitchener multiple times to have professional portraits done. We only ever had 8x10 inch or smaller prints framed or in an album but it still made me feel special and loved. When my sister passed away in August of 2021 from brain cancer and being a breast cancer survivor myself, I realized even more so how important having these memories really are. 

My goal has been to provide others with a full-service experience that may be "old school" to some, but the reality is the digital world is taking away the beauty of tangible artwork. We can hold them, frame them and hang them on the walls of our home. Showcase them in stunning heirloom albums to be passed down for generations. We can't touch a digital file and we never know how long before it is deleted or lost for good. Think of all the other technology that has become obsolete after the last several decades... but tangible artwork will never be one of them. Do we really only want our images as a screensaver or social media profile pic? 

I have been capturing milestones of my family, kiddos and pets for the last 10 years and my walls are filled with memories. This is something I can honestly say I will never regret.

Every photo session we have done with Kristin (2 newborns, 2 cake smash sessions, family photos etc.) has been a fun activity with our children. I can't imagine going with anyone else at this point.



I’ve continued to book with Kristin because she makes us feel at ease, so comfortable.. especially for a family like us, who find it hard to get even ONE decent photo! Kristin is a kind and genuine person, which makes her photography sessions so much fun! She’s patient and always meets us with amazing ideas for each photo session we’ve booked! So thankful she’s been able to capture such wonderful memories, I’ll be booking with her again soon!



Kristin was amazing to work with, and her ability to make my daughter comfortable and have fun during the photo session shows her talent and professionalism.

Cake smash


I have hired Kristin numerous times for family photos and also child portraits. Both had incredible results and were a great experience. Kristin was able to connect with camera shy people and get them out of their shell. The photos are all fantastic!



Kristin did an amazing job with both my newborn and 1 year cake smash photos. My daughter was not very cooperative but you could not even tell by the amazing photos!
