Hello! Edmonton Newborn and Family Photographer | Pause Photography

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Rona-Marie Harvey, and I hope this is a place where you can get to know me.

Since the birth of my daughter in early 2012, I have been focusing on family portraits, lifestyle sessions and newborn photography. It's nice to always have access to a willing model at home!

When not making portraits, I also work as a graphic designer. I love having family time at home with my husband, daughter and son. Coffee, walks, going to the playground with the kids and anything chocolate are things I enjoy on a daily basis.

If you'd like to connect with me, feel free to drop me a line at any time.

Thanks to Jaleen Lessard from Sweet Life Photography for my portrait with Parker.

Documenting my children in their every day activities is something I need to do more often. I love looking back through these images and seeing them as they really are – totally engrossed in finding ants, breaking sticks, digging in the dirt and being just plain silly. They don’t give me long, as they would prefer if I played “real” games with them instead of chasing them around with a camera in hand.

They are usually the first ones I practice new techniques on. In a few of the images below, I broke away from perfectly sharp and focused images for some slightly whimsical and artistic images with some tilt shift – I love how it turned out! These are the pictures I’ll treasure as our family grows older. The ones that show a little behind the scenes of our lives together.

I am planning on making the most of our next few weeks together. In September, my daughter starts Kindergarten. This mama is having a hard time coming to terms with that. I’m sure I’ll be pulling out pictures of her to look at while she’s away in school. Any other mamas out there sending their littles off to school for the first time? How are you managing with the upcoming transition? I feel my babies are growing up just a little too fast for me. The days are passing us by at whirlwind speed.
