Calgary Family and Newborn Photography

Welcome to my blog!  This is where I post my favorite photos from my most recent family, newborn, and baby photography sessions.  

About Me.jpgMy name is Alnaar Harnish and I am a photographer based in Calgary, Alberta Canada. But more importantly, I am a mother of two precious little children - Leanna and Noah. Leanna just started Kindergarten and Noah is two years old. I can’t believe how fast they are growing and I am so glad that I have been able to capture professional photos of them at each stage of their lives so far. I decided to specialize in photographing children and babies after having my own children and realizing how precious their photos have been to me.  It makes me so happy that I can provide beautiful photos to families that they will cherish for generations to come.

Below are some of my favorite photos from a recent photo session of my very own family!

I am a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. The NAPCP is an association whose mission is to promote and support the artistry and integrity of professional child photographers. To accomplish this mission, NAPCP provides the most comprehensive resources for its members, bringing together a community of passionate artists committed to growth in their skills, their artistry, and their businesses. 

As for my style, I work with both studio and natural light.  I have a home studio in my Aspen Hills home in South West Calgary.  I love to use my studio when photographing newborns as I have a variety of backdrops and props to provide a unique and customized session for each client.  It also comes in handy for Calgary’s unpredictable weather.  That said, I find that natural light can provide a breathtaking image.  I have a few locations that I use for outdoor photography in our beautiful city and am always open to suggestions!

Lynch Family - Calgary Family Photographer

This family was so much fun to work with!   Being able to capture special moments between the two sisters reminded me of why I love photography, especially family photography.

What to Wear? - Calgary Family Photography

I often get asked for advice from my clients regarding what to wear for their family photo session.  Finding the right outfits can be very challenging for many families.  My advice is to start with an outfit for a family member that you know you definitely want to use and then coordinate the rest of the outfits around that one.  The colours don’t have to match exactly, as long as they compliment eachother.

Here are some clothing combinations that I put together to give you some inspiration in choosing your family’s outfits for your family photo session. 






Owen - Calgary Newborn Photography

Owen was so sweet and sleepy for his newborn photo session.  He pretty much let me pose him however I wanted.  Here are some of my favorites!
