While they are still little…

Our kids are the most valuable things that we ever have. Time flies and before we know it they grow out of their baby clothes, cute kiddy styles and start to behave like a grown up. Before this happens, you want to make sure their innocent, silly-cute, curious, and adorable states are recorded in the form of beautiful candid images.

Kids photography sessions are only for the children from all ages from toddlers to teens. Kids are funny, curious and so imaginative. I like to show their personality, innocence and their playfulness in my images. Be it a creative still pose in the studio or an action shot outdoors, the focus is genuine and beautiful portraiture of your children.

As a mom of two, I pride myself on connecting quickly and easily with my littlest clients. I reassure my clients that no matter what their child’s mood or temperament, they will have beautiful memories of their family from our time together.

Kids Session Info

Kids Sessions

Kids photography sessions are designed for the children of all ages from toddlers to teens. Sessions are average 45 minutes long. We have in-studio and outdoor options for your little ones. If it is a studio session, your backdrops and props are custom designed for you before you arrive for your photo shoot. If it is an outdoor session, you can choose one of the beautiful Calgary parks for your photo shoot and we meet there with or without props. We will be discussing all details during our pre-session phone meeting.  We love creative settings. If you have a fun idea for your kids photo shoot, you can communicate it to the photographer during the pre-session phone meeting and it can be arranged.

School Portraits

If you would like to get your own school pictures for your child and be involved during the photo shoot, this session is for you. It is a 15 min session that yields lots of different poses to choose from.

We have on-locaion student portraits offerings for preschools each year in September.  Please contact us for details.

Pinar was so easy to work with. She definitely did an excellent job and made our photo shoot fun and interesting, especially for kids. Our little daughter loves working with Pinar. As a result of her professional work our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful!

Pinar is able to get beautiful shots from the wildest of subjects. She is patient, creative and energetic. A very talented photographer!

Leah Kirkpatrick

Pinar from Alpina Photography took our daughters school photos and she did a fantastic job – we had a hard time narrowing down our favourites! Our daughter really doesn’t like the camera but someone Pinar managed to capture her little personality and some of the best photos ever taken of her. We are very happy. Thanks Alpina Photography!

Kat Lowe

Pinar is an absolute joy to work with! She is amazing with kids, getting down on their level, being silly, and engaging them. The whole process was smooth and enjoyable, not usually the case with my rambunctious boys! Highly recommend Alpina Photography!

Jessica McPherson

She arranged to put together a Christmas package for my daughter. When we received the pictures my family and I were very impressed with the quality of work and the time frame in which the project was completed. She is a professional, creative, talented, very reasonable, and so easy to work with.I also have to say Pinar is very kind, personable and she adapts to and treats all clients as if they were her only clients. She will make you feel comfortable during the photo sessions and is a joy to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other people as I know you will be very happy with the results.

Baloon Voyage

I always found hot air balloons fascinating. The big deep baskets that Home Sense sells just gave me a great idea and I decided to make a hot air balloon photo prop. I sew sand bags from canvas and filled them with styrofoam beans and attach them to the basket.

A Day In The Fall

It’s Calgary, as everybody knows we don’t have lengthy falls and winter can show it’s face any time with a surprise snow storm. Before this happens, I wanted to capture the beautiful colors of the fall and chose this Saturday as our photo shoot day. I had a dress from my 20’s.
