About Pause Photography | Edmonton newborn, child, family and wedding photographer

Hello! I am Rona-Marie Harvey. I am based in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada).

I specialize in photography for awesome people, especially if those people have babies or families who like to have fun. Getting married? Wahoo! Let's chat about how I can help make your wedding day memorable. My favourite pictures to create are emotive, clean and organic portraits that make families feel they can stop time (even for a moment!) and strenghen the bonds that pull their family together.

I'd love to have the opportunity to get to know you and tell a part of your story through pictures. Interested in getting to know me a little more to see if our personalities and styles mesh? Let me tell you a little bit more about myself.

Time spent with my husband and two adorably ridiculous children are some of my happiest moments (enhanced even more when I have a cup of coffee in hand!). I never really appreciated just how quickly life flies by until I had my babies. It's true what they say - be present and enjoy this season of your life while you can, because they grow up so fast!

Other things I love: coffee, images that draw me in, writing that makes me see in colour, locally made, coffee, hand drawn perfect imperfections, using a pencil and paper instead of always a computer, time spent with my family and friends, babies, coffee, dogs, chocolate and yoga. Did I mention I love coffee? I struggle with overusing the word "love" and exclamation points. But you might have already noticed that.

I began specializing in newborn, child and family portrait photography when my daughter was born and haven't looked back since. I'm so thankful I have a wall full of pictures to document how our family has grown over the years, and to be able to provide the same for all my clients.

In addition to professional photography, I am also a graphic designer. I love being able to combine my creative skills and training into a career that leaves me feeling excited about my work.

I love when I capture moments in time that represent who you and your family are - whether that’s goofy, serious, quiet or full of non-stop energy. Before your session even takes place, we will talk about what your portrait goals are and how you want to display the art we make in your home. My goal is to provide you with a variety of images from your session, from some that are posed, to others that are completely organic. No matter the situation, my desire is to capture a glimpse through my lens of you and your family’s genuine personalities.

If you're still reading, I think that's a good sign that we will get along! Get in touch so we can start making some beautiful pictures that will tell your family's story and that you'll love to display in your home. I am looking forward to telling your story.
