Hi, my name is


Photo of Katie Crane with a wide smile taken by Toronto Wedding Photographer, Melista Bahlar Photography.



One of my favorite parts about being a wedding and lifestyle photographer is the unique opportunity to step into seasons of life. Getting to know my couples (their personalities, their passions, their journey) allows for a personable experience that often develops into sweet friendships even beyond the wedding day!

My hopes and dreams are that your photos will not only be beautiful, but that they will be a reflection of your authentic relationship, they will remind you of how you felt during each part of your day: bursting with emotion, excitement, joy, and happiness.

When you look through your wedding album in 50 years, I want you to feel the love, and remember the sounds of laughter.

I always say I have the best “job” in the world because it has hardly felt like work. Every person I have been able to meet on the other side of my camera has changed me for the better in one way or another, and I hope I can do that for them too.

I want you to be able to show up completely as yourself, with hearts wide open. I want you to feel comfy, be yourself, and be the beautiful person you are. I want you to be able to be free and present on your wedding day, and together we will create endless stories. Let me help you remember it for always. And this is where my heart begins to beat. So before we begin, I’d love to share a bit more about myself to be sure we’ll be a fit!


Some Fun Facts!



  1. I met my husband, Kyle, at a park when I was 17!  We dated for eight years, got engaged, and have been married now for over seven!
  2. The best part of our lives these days is our daughter Paityn! She is the greatest gift I have ever received. Yes! She was named after one of my favorite quarterbacks heehee.
  3. We have an adopted cat named Dixie who is 21 years old that we love way too much!
  4. My clients describe me as: having a heart of gold, passionate, and having a hilarious cackle.
  5. I live for a good country song. I like to belt everything out on the dance floor.
  6. I don’t want to live a day without my amazing family (and maybe....a good cup of coffee and chocolate!)
  7. I have a secret obsession with Hallmark Christmas movies heehee!
  8. I love shooting in beautiful light, but so much more I love the couples that this business has brought into my life, and the joy of serving them on one of their sweetest days!

An Everlasting Legacy



A photo isn’t just a physical interaction of light through a lens.

It is an eternal memory and a glimpse into the past.

It's what others will hold onto as they stitch together the pieces of your story

My belief is your session is not just about the ability to take pretty pictures. But, it's the ability to listen, to be a guide, and to develop an emotional connection with each other.

It's ensuring you have a personable experience. It's making you both feel comfy and at home; at the same time making sure everyone else around you feels the same. This is so incredibly important to me.

When the memories fade, and time surpasses. I want you to be able to look back through your gallery and feel like you are reliving your day.

So together let's create an everlasting story and friendship!

What is included in your newborn photography packages?

In my newborn photography packages, you can expect a pre-session consultation, the newborn session itself, a set number of edited digital images, and access to an online gallery for viewing and downloading your images. Additionally, I offer print packages and album packages, which provide discounts and savings for those who prefer to bundle their prints or albums with their session. However, you are more than welcome to purchase prints and albums a la carte at a later date to suit your preferences.

How far in advance should I book my newborn session?

It's best to book your newborn session during your pregnancy, ideally in the second trimester. This ensures availability and allows me to plan for the session accordingly.

What should we expect during the newborn session?

During the newborn session, you can expect a relaxed and comfortable environment where I focus on capturing natural, candid moments of your baby. I'll provide gentle guidance on posing and styling to ensure beautiful portraits.

How long does a typical newborn session last?

A typical newborn session lasts around 1.5 hours... however depending on some babies it can range from 2-4 hours to allow ample time for feeding, soothing, and capturing various poses and setups. So, I always like to say block off a few hours :).

Do you provide accessories for the newborn session?

Yes, I provide a variety of wraps and accessories to enhance the newborn session and create a personalized look that reflects your style and preferences. However, I also encourage couples to incorporate items that are meaningful to them, as it adds a unique touch to their session and helps tell their story. Whether it's a special blanket, toy, or heirloom item, using personal items can make the session even more special and meaningful. I'm here to help you create a session that captures your individuality and love in the most authentic way possible.

Do you offer both studio and in-home newborn sessions?

Yes, I offer both studio and in-home newborn sessions to accommodate your preferences and needs. Studio sessions provide controlled lighting and props, while in-home sessions capture the natural environment and intimacy of your home.

Each image is expertly edited and retouched to maintain exceptional quality and authenticity.

Where are you based and do you travel?

Yes, I'm based in Scarborough but am happy to travel within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Durham region. I love exploring new locations for photography sessions! Please note that if your session requires travel outside of these areas, a travel fee may apply. Let's discuss your photography needs and location preferences to ensure we capture your family's story beautifully.

What measures do you take to ensure the safety and comfort of the newborn during the session?

Safety is my top priority during newborn sessions. I handle newborns with care, ensuring they are comfortable and secure at all times. I follow safe posing techniques and maintain a clean and sanitized environment. It's important to note that I take on more of a lifestyle approach with my posing. This means that my poses are natural and reflective of real-life moments, such as baby on the bed or mom and dad holding the baby. I do not take on an "Anne Geddes" approach, which involves elaborate poses or using props like buckets or baskets. My style focuses on capturing authentic and genuine moments that reflect the beauty of your family's story in a natural way.

Can we schedule a consultation to discuss our vision and preferences for the session?

Absolutely! I encourage scheduling a consultation to discuss your vision, preferences, and any special requests you may have for the session. This helps me tailor the session to your specific needs and ensures we capture the images you'll cherish forever.

What happens if my newborn is fussy or uncooperative during the session?

It's completely normal for newborns to be fussy or uncooperative during sessions. I understand the importance of patience and flexibility in these situations. I allow plenty of time for feeding, soothing, and breaks as needed to ensure your baby is comfortable and happy throughout the session. My priority is to create a relaxed and enjoyable experience for both you and your newborn.

As a fellow parent, I empathize with the challenges of caring for a newborn. If you and your baby have had a rough night and didn't get enough sleep, I am more than happy to reschedule the session for a time that works better for you. Your comfort and well-being are important to me, and I want to ensure you have the best experience possible.
