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!
