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

Masthead header

I nearly jumped out of my chair in excitement when I received an email from long-time client, Courtenay, saying she was expecting twins. ย I’ve loved photographing this family so many times, starting years ago with their engagement session. It’s been amazing watching them grow into the family they are today. ย So when I found out the big news, I was thrilled to hear that they would be adding 2 more to their family . Of course, the twins are adorable. I was smitten with them from first glance- like come on, check out those perfect round faces. Little Hannah was adorable too- in fact she may have stolen the show more then once ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks again M family for having me over to document another giant life event. I’m already looking forward to our session this summer to see how much they’ve grown.

Hugs,

Kelsy

    We love having you photograph our family Kelsy! Thanks for the memories of our tiny twins and two year old Hannah!

  • Shirley Mayowski - March 4, 2017 - 9:48 pm

    Still admire the amazing wedding photos you took of Trev & Court at the Wndspeare and powered through the day after reacting to a hornet bite the day before. You continue to do amazing work capturing special images of our Grandbabies!

Katherine and Stephan are a couple of awesome people. I laughed all through their engagement session and even more throughout their wedding. ย The pink blossoms were the perfect touch for this springtime session in Edmonton and I’m so glad we could take advantage. The apple blossoms are so pretty but oh so fleeting in our northern city. ย I also love when couples add in their own personal touches, like adding Katherine’s bike for a few images. ย  Combine a beautiful flowering location along with some setting sun, an adorable bike, ย two awesome people, and lots of laughs, and you’ve got a perfect evening. Thanks Katherine and Stephan for sharing it with me.

xoxo

Kelsy

The love that they shine on me is immeasurable.

    Nothing brings greater joy than hearing Millie squeal with delight whenever her big sister comes into the room. And when Tenelle isn’t there, shes squealing, literally looking for her, ducking her head about. And hearing Tenelle say so proudly, I’m her big sister. She’s my little sister, and she’s my best friend. And watching them hang out in the crib together… that’s pretty good for a smile and a laugh and a heart-melting moment too.

  • Kellee - February 2, 2017 - 12:05 pm

    Being with my family makes me happy, especially playing games and seeing our *mostly* friendly competitiveness come out. Photos of being happy with loved ones also make me happy

    Congrats Kelsy, on 10 years of doing what you do the best! There are many things that make me happy but since I am answering this question to enter a contest to win a family session with you, I will write something related to this. The maternity and newborn photos you took of us, make me very happy. “Take care of all your memories, for you cannot relive them”- Bob Dylan. Luckily, we have been able to relive ours because of the beautiful photos you took. I have used those photos to say a lot of things here and there.. as you may have seen it on my FB or IG. Thank you, for being a great photographer, friendly conversations during the sessions, beautiful photos and commendable after session service!!! Good luck with this year and I look forward to entering more contests like this!

    Happiness is… Watching former students grow into amazing adults who follow their dreams and bring joy to others ๐Ÿ˜Š

    What makes me happy is doing things as a family. Seeing the silly smiles on my kids faces as we all enjoy something we do. I love watching my kids grow and learn.

    Taking time – it’s so hard sometimes. Especially when our kids grow and change so fast, it seems as though we are always ‘busy’ and don’t just take time to ‘be’. As a working mom – who recently went back to work after baby #3, I seem to be in the ‘constant exhaustion’ phase – but know that it’s all for the best things in my life. Our family is happy – and busy – but good…so recognizing that seems to be captured here and there in those tiny moments. I am happy. And lucky.

    What makes me happy? My kids๐Ÿ’• I didn’t know that a heart could hold so much love until I had my kids. Their tears, their smiles, their look of concentration when working on something , the sound of their laughter – all of it and so much more make my heart full and make me happy to have been blessed to be their mom.

    Setting dreams and achieving them makes me happy. Feeling free to be me, makes me happy. Watching my kids laugh together makes me happy. Spooning makes me happy. Your pics make me happy.

    My kids make me happy!

I first met Claire and Lucas when I photographed their engagement session on the Alberta Prairies. I was then lucky enough to be able to capture ย their incredibleย ย weddingย on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia. Then came sweet Baby Jamesย and his session in their Calgary home. But unfortunately for me, this lovely family moved across the country. Howeverthey came back this summer for a visit, and I was able to meet up with them in Kananaskis Countryย for a family portrait session with their adorable boys.ย ย We dodged the rain and had fun exploring one of the most beautiful places in Alberta.

Claire and Lucas, fingers crossed our paths can cross again sometime soon. I absolutely adore your little family.

Hugs,

Kelsy
