Kelsy Nielson Photographer – Blog » Recent Edmonton Wedding Photography from Kelsy Nielson

Masthead header

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Kelly and Cam Talbot’s adorable twin babies at 8 months old. I first met them last October when they were only a few days old, and now these sweet little twins are hitting new milestones- like sitting up and crawling all over!  Our recent session got me thinking that it was time to share their lovely newborn portraits on this blog.  Last October seems like forever ago… but strangely it also seems like just last week. Time is funny like that, especially when you have young kids.

The twins, Landon and Sloane,  made headlines in Edmonton when their Dad, Cam, kept on winning big games in net after their birth. They ended up being quite possibly the cutest lucky charms The Oilers have ever seen.   They also got their own adorable hashtag #talbottwins, and how many babies can say that?

Thank you Kelly and Cam for having me in your home to photograph your sweet babies. You’re both some of the kindest, most genuine people I’ve met.  I have loved getting to know you and I’m looking forward to seeing you again for the next big milestone.




How could we resist a picture with Dad’s helmet or the puck from his first big win after their birth? And those tiny jerseys? All the <3

I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with Paula and her family while we were camping in Jasper National Park last summer. They didn’t mind me smelling like campfire, and I certainly didn’t mind having the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop for their family session. It worked out perfectly.  I love photographing families in new places and new spaces- especially when we can coordinate it with my travel and summer camping schedule.  I have a few travel dates that still have room for one more family session. If you are interested in any of the locations below just send me a message to inlove(@) and let’s chat dates!


But back to Paula and her family.  Thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph your family in Jasper and be a small part of this momentous life occasion. I can’t wait to share your newborn session with sweet baby Quinn soon. The road to becoming a family of four was filled with challenges you never expected, but now things are perfect and just the way they were meant to be. And I can’t believe Quinn is almost a year old (I guess that means I have A LOT of blogging to catch up on!).

Lots of love to your family,


Any time I get to photograph a family in a place that’s near and dear to them it makes my heart so happy. I was lucky enough to photograph the Packford Family out at their cabin on Wabamum Lake on a warm summer evening. We roasted marshmallows, played in the water,  created some art and just hung out in their favourite place. It was one of those perfect summer evenings. Kayla even made me the most delicious, melty s’more you could imagine.  If every session could be as fun (and tasty!) and I’d be one happy photographer.

If you’re thinking about booking a family session for this summer, let’s connect and chat about all the places your family loves. I’m sure we can create some magic together.

    Beautiful photos and what an amazing way to remember such a special place. Great work as always.

I first met Kassey & Alex a few years ago when I photographed their beautiful wedding and engagement session. I’m so happy they’ve now become friends and I’ve been able to watch their family grow. Like I’ve said before, it’s a honour to be a continual part of my clients lives.  Kassey is the face behind the blog The Lovely Ordinary and I love following along with their family adventures through social media. Recently their family grew from three to four….okay so not so recently since little Emma is now one (hides face in shame from my lack of blogging over the last year).  But regardless, their little girls are adorable and this family makes me smile every time I see them. There were so many moments I loved from this session, particularly when big sister Thea decided she wanted to hold baby sister….only to change her mind 2 seconds laters. Yep, I love toddlers 😉

Thanks again Kassey and Alex for having me in your home again to photographed another beautiful baby girl. Looking forward to documenting many more big family moments with you all <3





Spoiler alert- Holly and Bill had a beautiful baby girl who just turned one last month!  But that’s not stopping me from sharing how beautiful Holly looked while Pregnant with little Miss Hayden. While I may be behind in blogging, how could I not share these frosty trees and this adorable belly?  I also loved this session because we were able to shoot inside the nursery-to-be as they were building their dream home. Being able to capture different parts of my clients lives- through the transitions and times of anticipation- is one of my very  favourite parts of my job.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon,
