Thanks for stopping by!  I am family, maternity, and newborn photographer Mikelle Allaire. My studio is located in the beautiful town of Invermere, just above Columbia Cycle. I offer sessions in my studio or on location in the Columbia Valley region of the East Kootenays. This includes the communities of Radium Hot Springs, Fairmont Hot Springs, Edgewater, Canal Flats and more. I also love to travel, so if you are interested in booking something beyond these areas please let me know! I'd be happy toarrange it!

What's it like to come in for a newborn photo session at my studio? During the session you are welcome to come right into the studio where all of the pictures are taken. There is also a small but comfortable waiting area just outside the door. I encourage parents to bring snacks and drinks since a newborn session takes a bit of time. Most of the time we start a newborn session with the "baby only" images, and finish up with the family portion of the session if that is what you have chosen.

The first few weeks with a new baby are such an exciting time. I try to make sure that the process of coming to my studio for these pictures is just another amazing experience during this special time for parents and families. If you would like to learn more about what is involved, check out the details here: newborn sessions. Feel free to contact me here: contact Mikelle. I would be thrilled to hear from you and discuss the options that are available!

The baby only images include those taken on a beanbag that is specially designed for posing newborns, on one or two fabrics we choose, as well as some of the props I have in my studio. Newborn posing buckets, bowls, tiny beds, baskets and a few other items may be used for your newborn session. Although I do try to capture a wide variety, we will not use too many of the props, as it is most important to take the time to capture each pose perfectly. We can discuss in advance what is most important to you so that we make sure to focus on that first!
