About the photographer

Hi there and THANK YOU for stopping by!

My name is Mila, I am on location photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, baby and family portraiture, serving Airdrie, Calgary, Chestermere, Cochrane and surrounding areas in beautiful Alberta, Canada. The word “Milashka” is loosely translated from Russian as “cutie” or “sweetheart” as that is often how we see our newborns. It's with this sense of playfulness, joy, connection, and light heartedness that I will always approach our photography sessions and shoots together. I promise your session will be a wonderful and satisfying experience.

Since opening my business in 2014, I have been continuously improving and perfecting my skill set with training from world renowned photographers. I have extensive experience handling newborns and babies of any age so you can have every confidence that your little one will be happy and safe with me during our session. My business is fully licensed and insured. I photograph with natural lighting and studio lighting. I offer a variety of quality props, outfits, gowns and backdrops to choose from.

I have been certified as a Qualified Newborn Photographer (QNP) with the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI), placing me amongst an elite group of photographers worldwide who currently hold QNP certification. I am also an approved and certified Newborn photographer with Professional Newborn Photographers Association, and I have won multiple awards for my images with Baby Photo Awards as well as AFNS.

Newborn Portraits

“Because They’re Only Little for a Little While”

The newborn photo session should be scheduled in the first 2 weeks of your baby’s life. Please contact me in advance with your due date, so that I can reserve you a spot on my calendar.

I am ON LOCATION photographer, which means that I will come to YOU! My portable studio system and experience will ensure we capture the most beautiful images of your brand new baby with the least amount of disruption to your household and the most amount of parental enjoyment possible.

A maternity photoshoot should be scheduled anytime between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy. I offer a wide variety of beautiful maternity gowns to choose from.  You will have an option to have an indoor maternity session at the comfort of your own home or an outdoor maternity session at a local park. I also offer Milk Bath sessions and Mountain Maternity Sessions in the Kananaskis country.

Baby Milestone Portraits

Baby milestone session could be any session to capture your baby's journey during the first year.  It could be a 3, 6 or 9 months milestone. For this session I will come to your residence with my portable studio, props, outfits and we will create timeless portraits in the comfort of your own home!

Cakesmash Portraits

This is a fun and extremely memorable photoshoot. Usually we schedule this session close to your baby's 1st birthday. I will come to your house with my portable studio and all necessary props. All I need from you is a cake. We start with a few family / sibling shots, followed by a few pictures of the baby by him/herself, cake smash and finishing with a bubble bath or milk bath.

Family Portraits

Family photoshoot is all about capturing connection, love and togetherness. I prefer to take family pictures outside (weather permitting), at any location of your choice around Calgary, AB.

Calgary Photographer - Investement

We’ve hired Mila to capture our precious life moments on five separate occasions and will continue to do so. Her calm manner makes everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and her meticulous patience with the newborn shoots is something I’m in awe of. She’s also incredibly timely in getting our photos back to us and we’ve been so happy with them every time!

Mila is fabulous! Words cannot express how much I love and cherish the work that she did with my newborn. She captured such a wonderful and intimate time in our lives and I am so grateful for her mastery. She is a baby whisperer without a doubt. As a first time mom I could have been nervous having a stranger handling my newborn, however not with Mila. She worked with such class, sensitivity and kindness that she put all of my worries at ease. I am looking forward to having her capture more of our family moments throughout the years. She’s kind, trustworthy, gentle, honest, and exudes professionalism. I have happily recommended Mila to friends, family and colleagues.
