You want to document your young family in photographs.
A photograph reminds you to pause, breathe and enjoy. It reminds you of what matters. Because this moment, right here, right now. This is meaningful to you.
I'm Karen Byker, a professional photographer in Niagara, Ontario since 2005. I would be overjoyed to create beautiful, long-lasting memories for you.
"You were able to capture our family in such a beautiful way and we're so thankful. We're so in love with them!"
- Sarah Dietz
“Karen came recommended to us by our previous family photographer. Karen is both extremely professional and extremely caring. She only had our best interest at heart. She wanted our family photos to be meaningful and cherished for years to come and she achieved this easily. The big reveal of our photos brought me to tears…” - Loredana Pijl
“I can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of us right from the beginning. Your kind emails walked us through every step of the process before we even had our scheduled time together. So grateful you care enough about your customers to spend time up front so that we get the pictures we want. Thank you!” - Kerrin Norman
“Karen gave me a call & we chatted on the phone at length so she could get a feel for what my husband and I would like out of our session. We did not feel posed at all or pressured to “perform” for our photos. I would highly recommend Karen for anyone looking to get maternity, family or newborn photos taken.” - Nicole Khoshaba
“What instantly attracted me was Karen’s clean, crisp style. However, after our maternity session together I can say she is so much more than a photographer... she is a storyteller that creates and captures true family moments in her beautiful studio. Karen made me feel more beautiful than I have felt in a long time.” - Michelle Freel
“Everything is extremely organized right from the time of booking - from selecting times, deciding what to wear and how to prepare for the sessions to the review and ordering process. She offers tons of support and recommendations which make the process easy and stress-free. Karen is amazing, both with newborns and children.” - Jennifer Jones
“Karen is amazing! Karen photographed my little one and was so kind and patient with him. She captured incredible memories that I will cherish forever and the quality of her work is outstanding. Working with Karen is simple, stress-free and easy. She makes your session and overall experience enjoyable and fun.” - Kayla Zuidersma
“She made the whole process very easy from then beginning. Communication was great. Her studio is beautiful and I loved that she supplied a wardrobe, not only for me but also my kids. It made life so much easier after just having a baby and a cesarean. While at her studio as well, she took good care of us and my kids.” - Shayna Aasman
“Karen has photographed two of our newborn sessions and a first year’s session for our youngest. She is incredibly professional and so amazing with children. Our photographs are nicely displayed throughout our home and everyone comments on how stunning the quality of her work is. The only regret I have is not finding her sooner.” - Carlin Friedrich
“Anyone who is planning on baby or family photos please make an appointment now. I was really nervous about my 3.5 year old actually smiling and looking at the camera. My worries were soon forgotten once we got into the studio, a warm, clean, inviting, beautiful lighting and most importantly a calming atmosphere for children.” - Jennifer Grebenc
“We loved our experience with Karen. She made us feel welcome and ready to enjoy the (naturally awkward) process of having our photos taken. Karen goes above and beyond to make her clients comfortable and relaxed and even paused the photo shoot to allow me to nurse my fussy 6 month old. :)” - Laura Gillis
“Working with Karen is an absolute pleasure from start to finish; her calm spirit makes the entire experience relaxing and enjoyable. We recently completed our fifth photo session and couldn't be happier with the experience and final product! Her photos capture the intimacy of a family, making them truly timeless and priceless.” - Stephanie Hopkins
“Karen was phenomenal. She brought out the best of me and my family. Her sway with my newborn was even more touching. When we went back for the review, it was an even better experience. She is professional, detailed and literally the best at what she does. You won’t regret using her service.” - Archie Eastwood-Anaba
