"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind
My name is Kerry Peterson, photographer for Take A Little Paws Photography. I am a Canadian Military wife, and the mother of two beautiful young children. I love watching our two small children experience things for the first time. After my love of family comes photography. Chasing my husband and children around with my camera is a daily occurrence. I specialize in capturing military life events from maternity, birth, family portraits, pre-deployment boudoir, weddings and so much more. When a service member is away, often all we have to hold onto during tough times is a photograph and a memory.
Photographing people and telling their story through the lens of my camera is my passion. I love hearing my client's unique story, and learning what makes their relationship special. I want my clients to be completely relaxed to capture their inner beauty. I’m not a fan of rigid, uncomfortable posing, nor ‘forcing moments’.
Canada is a spectacular country, and I love being able to incorporate it's beautiful outdoors in my work. Many of my clients feel awkward posing in a stuffy studio with equipment they do not understand. Where possible, I like to take my clients to a gorgeous outdoor location where they can relax and be themselves. I’m always exploring and finding new areas and angles to give each session a unique look. Whether my clients would like a natural, outdoor shot, or a more traditional style, I’m happy to accommodate their wishes. During our long, cold winters I utilize my studio, making clients as comfortable as possible. There I use rich, natural colors with an outdoorsy, natural look.
Capturing precious moments and providing timeless memories is my passion.
I am based out of Lancaster Park, Alberta but I'm happy to travel anywhere.
