Xx, krista hawryluk

My four children are the reason why photographs mean anything to me. They are a constant reminder of how quickly time moves and how important it is to live in the present. 

Photography started as a creative outlet, after being flooded with Post Partum Depression. But it soon blossomed into this thriving business and completely changed the trajectory of my life. It is now a life full of PURPOSE, EMOTION, ART, MEANING,  CREATIVITY, IMPORTANCE, and LOVE.

My work is filled with human connection, feeling, light, adventure and composition, These are the values of my business and within my art. I am aiming to tell your story though a cinematic lens - an honest story full of heart. 

Just like no two people are alike, no two sessions are ever the same. Bring forward your individuality and your unapologetic selves, and in-turn you will receive images that speak to you as a human being that you will cherish beyond belief. 

I'm Krista, And I'm so happy you found your way here

HELLO friend!

fun facts

we wanted someone adventurous and who would bring even more joy on our special day, and that was definitely Krista.

kaylee and Sebastian

She truly cares about you beyond being her client, you become her friends! Our wedding day was so fun and a huge part of that was Krista's personality. She kept us and our bridal party laughing all day long while capturing breathtaking images that we hold so dear to our heart. Multiple members of our bridal party said how taking photos at our wedding was the best part of their day due to Krista's contagious laugh and outgoing personality!! Since our wedding she has photographed a wedding, a family session AND a newborn session for just our siblings alone! She truly has become a member of our family and tomorrow she'll be photographing our very own newborn session! We can't say enough amazing things about Krista, do yourself a favour and book your next photography session with her! We promise you won't regret it!!

Krista has photographed some very precious memories in my life and for that I will be forever grateful. She is a kind, approachable and professional photographer. During our wedding, we loved every step of the process working with Krista. Her passion and skill for photography was evident through our conversations, engagement photos and then our big day. She always put our needs first and ensured she kept our wedding vision in mind. In 2020 she captured some beautiful newborn photos for us as we grew our family. She helped us feel comfortable as new parents and captured special memories of us with our son. We love having Krista in our lives to document these big moments and truly consider her a friend.

Lauren and family

 She captured the essence of our family on our home turf so incredibly beautifully. We were blown away at her professionalism, speedy delivery, quality of photos (we loved her creative vision) and most of all how comfortable she made our kiddos feel during the photo shoot! It was as though they were hanging out with a new friend! She had them show her their rooms in the house, and got them to take her around our property on a tour. She even got them involved in the photo shoot by playing some little games, which they loved! we really love the family photos she captured. We will cherish these forever, a moment in time we don’t want to forget in our new family home as a family of 5 with our new puppy, and cow at the time!

little love notes

No one saw that coming. 
TWINS?! While I had a 4 year old and a 1 year old?!
Well.. it happened, and these two little boys have brought so much love and light and calmness into our lives. It forces us  to learn how to be even more present, and enjoy the everyday and raw moments. This skill has transferred over into my business. It is a true gift!

sURPRISE, twins!!!!

present

2020 brought all sorts of drama, including our second born (the firecracker) and the coronavirus.  A lot changed this year as we spent a lot of time together as a family. My priorities shifted and I learned how to balance my work life with my family. The importance of documenting our lives and the lives of others through photographs only increased and I am so happy for that. 

Another Baby... and the Rona...

2020

For a while, I tried to juggle being a new mom, a full time job, and a full time side photography business. It was clear what needed to be done, and I wanted to give more of myself to my clients and to grow this passion fueled business. I quit my corporate job and I've never looked back!

I QUIT corporate!

2018

After the birth of my first child, like most new moms, I took on a new identity as a a mother.
But...who was Krista? I had lost who she was. I started diving into photography as a creative outlet to help with my Post Partum Depression. With the encouragement of my husband, I turned my outlet into a business and my passion, creativity, and love for photographs flourished. 

Passion, determination, and pinch of depression
