Rezika Zurch Photography – Newborn Baby Infant Child Maternity Family & Children's Photographer Edmonton Alberta | Capturing the moments that matter most » ....capturing the moments that matter most

I do not really Blog much about me nor do I like being on the other side of the camera but lately I have been teaching my husband some tricks and he  has been trying to get better with his skills. We love taking pictures and often I find that I never take enough of myself or my kids. I have lot’s of him…he is so photogenic! But this is me…

My dad is Croatian so I get my bright beautiful eyes from him. They change with my mood and the light and I love accentuating them with my different eye shadows. I am a Mac girl and love Sephora. When I was in Vegas for WPPI me and Kim From Studio 9 Photographics and Jill from J Shantz photography went shopping at Sephora and I got this wicked triple threat tattoo eye liner by Kat Von D. OMGoodness–it’s Amazing and I love it! I promise one day I will take more pictures of me. But this brings me to my babies. I love photographing newborns and I feel I just don’t share enough of my sessions. I would have to blog daily to share them all. SO here are a few more of the latest and greatest.

  • Greensboro Newborn Baby Portrait Photographer - beautiful babies, beautiful you…love your work! : )

My youngest daughter doesn’t really take well to other children and maybe it is because she is so close to us. But putting her in preschool at woodvale has really opened her up. The programs are amazing and the teachers are top knotch. I blogged one of her teachers session here. The great thing is, we are finally doing play dates and she has taken well to her new little friend. These girls both have older sisters so they seem to connect really well. It was our turn to host the play date so we had a princess tea party and then I took them for some pictures. I added some head bands from pooks and lulu to add a little fancy to their shoot. My daughter has the blue head band on and wouldn’t take individual photos for me, but thats not anything new. It was just nice to have fun with the girls and take time out of my day to enjoy the little things. “Happy Girls are the Prettiest – Audrey Hepburn”

What’s great about what I do is I get to see people that I haven’t seen in years and it’s nice having that loyalty of friends and even mentors. Believe it or not I have a Honours Degree in Molecular Genetics at the University of Alberta. I was doing my Independent Research Project in Dr. Heather McDermids lab and right across the hall was Brians lab (the father of this sweet girl). Brian had the pleasure of being a mentor for me in a few of my courses but most notably I picked his brain in my GENET 375 class with his professor. It was honestly the hardest challenge of my life and I loved it. Then Brian and his wife Jess got to be my teachers in another one of my labs and they were honestly the best TA’s out there. They taught me so much and even took extra time to help when needed. Not surprisingly Jess went on to become a Doctor and they chose me to photograph their little bundle of joy. They even drove all the way from sylvan lake. I feel so lucky to of been able to pay them back a bit for the hard work they put into me. See more of my Newborn work in my galleries.

Their is one prop I have that my clients ALL want to use. Yes, it is the wagon. We got it at The Old Strathcona Antique Mall which is owned locally by a good friend and her mom.Can you believe I purchased this gem for only $7 and it has lasted me a good 3 years. I love it and I love posing newborns in it too. As a newborn photographer you have to be unique and you have to set yourself apart from others and by shopping at unique stores like an antique store you can find props that no one else would have. It’s a start and shopping for newborn props has turned into an obsession at times. Sometimes I find myself spending $200 a week on new things but it is so worth it and I love seeing my newborns in them.

Another thing I love about my job is that I get to see these babies through out their growth. I even sen this little guy with his mom at an exercise class I attend. Awee.. I love what I do!
