“From the moment we met her, Kim’s passion in working with newborns was clear. With her gentle, patient, and most caring approach, Kim was able to capture the heart and personality of our little one. She made us, as new parents feel at ease and through her incredible photos, has gifted us with memories for a lifetime.
Kim, we can’t thank you enough and we look forward to the next time!”

“Kim, is the baby whisperer!”
“I researched and compared 10 to 15 newborn photographers before selecting Kim Mlekuz. Kim’s photos were, by far, the most natural, creative, high quality images. Also, she managed to make every newborn, in every photo, look absolutely adorable and peaceful.
During our consultation meeting, Kim told us that it is easiest to photograph babies before they are 10 days old. Unfortunately, our daughter had a rough birth and needed to wait until she was at least 2 weeks old for her photo shoot. Kim was very accommodating with regards to moving the photo shoot, even though it meant working on Easter weekend. We were nervous about how things would go given our daughter’s “older” age and active temperament, but Kim had lots of tricks up her sleeve to keep our little one happy and sleepy. We were amazed at how gentle and patient she was and at how she managed to get our daughter into all sorts of adorable poses.
The pictures turned out so well that we had difficulty deciding which ones to enlarge! Luckily Kim offered to help us narrow it down.
We would highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks for an incredible experience and fantastic photos Kim! We can’t wait to work with you again.”

“Kim was such a pleasure to work with and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have newborn photos taken. She was accommodating to our schedule, so gentle with our newborn and such a genuinely nice person. We were truly thrilled with our newborn photo experience. As a mother of two, this newborn session was so pleasurable and Kim made our entire family feel relaxed. We had a lengthy session, didn’t feel rushed as I was able to feed/change my baby as needed and it was fun! Lastly we were thrilled with the final products after the shoot. These photos have captured memories for a lifetime. Thanks again Kim!!”

We are so thankful that we found Kim, she has captured many beautiful memories of our children and that, to us, is priceless. Kim is becoming a regular at our family’s milestones so we don’t ever have to worry about missing that special moment.

“It was amazing to see Kim in action behind the camera and how patient she was in getting the perfect shot. She was really great at calming Piper back to sleep each time she woke, which was a lot. I was so in love with all of the pictures that I couldn’t decide which to get, so I had to buy them all! What a great way to preserve Pipers first few days of life. Thank you Kim for such an amazing job. Can’t wait to have you to do our Fall family pictures.”

Not only did she make a new mom feel very comfortable, she was very patient with my squirmy little one and was able to capture the most beautiful pictures that we will cherish for years to come. I highly recommend Kim for your newborn pictures. She is professional, talented and creative.”

“We had such a great time having our little girl photographed with Kim. It was quite obvious that she loves working with children. She was fun, friendly and patient.

“Our daughter Sophie was born early, at 32 weeks. This was an emotionally volatile time in our lives. We felt blessed to be able to bring her home earlier than first expected due to how well she was growing and developing. We knew we had to do something preserve this moment in our lives. Kim was able to come into our home to help us encapsulate this moment in our history. When people see the pictures that she took they can tell by the look Kim was able to capture in Sophie’s eyes how vulnerable yet strong she was (and still is!). We were so impressed with how the photo shoot turned out that we have gone back to Kim on a few occasions to commemorate special moments in Sophie’s life, such as her first Christmas and Valentines Day. We have and will continue to highly recommended Kim to our friends and family. Her peaceful and pleasant demeanour kept both Sophie and I engaged throughout the photo shoots. The pictures that she has taken for us highlight moments in our lives in a way that snap shots could never capture.”
Thank you Kim! You are a very talented woman.
~ Denise Bechara ~ Burlington, ON
“Kim is extremely patient, artistic and talented. She created a very warm and comfortable setting for my 4 day old baby girl. The pictures she took were the “talk” among my family and friends because they turned out so amazing. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone that is interested.
When I saw the finished product, it took my breath away! I cannot thank you enough for capturing Naiylah’s first moments. Not a word of a lie, these are the most amazing pictures I have ever seen!”
~ Kartral ~ Oakville, ON
I LOVE the photos!! They are awesome!!! My daughter has so many expressions and you were able to capture all of them! The edits really do make such a difference. I always wait with such anticipation to see your work because I know they’ll turn out amazing- thank you!! I cant wait to share them with everyone!
~ Adrienne ~ Burlington, ON
“Being a new mother after years of praying for a miracle is a very emotional and thrilling time not only for me but for my entire family. With that in mind, we sought out a professional to take photographs of our daughter Olivia in a family heirloom gown. When we saw Kim’s website, we were instantly drawn in at how beautiful yet simple her pictures were and we knew she was the right photographer for us. Not only did she capture gorgeous pictures of our amazing angel baby in her Christening gown (which brought my mother in law to tears), we had a little fun and got an amazing picture of our baby as a ballerina! She looks tu tu cute!
Kim’s approach to me as a mother was very calming as she listened to what my needs were. She was also gentle and captured my daughter’s attention which lead to MANY beautiful pictures. Most importantly, I did not feel rushed or pressured. Kim takes her time and lets you be with your child and lets your child be themselves.
We had an amazing experience with Kim and HIGHLY recommend her. Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts Kim for the amazing gift you have given us that we will always cherish.
We will be seeing you again soon!”

“We were so lucky to find Kim to do our photos for us. She was absolutely fantastic and we have nothing but great things to say about the whole experience.
First, she came over to our house when our little dude was just born which really made it easy for us as new, sleepless parents. She was so patient while she was there as our little guy being brand new wasn’t on any kind of schedule at that time, thus needing to be fed often and was a bit fussy at the start. Her patience was important to me as a new mom. We felt very, very comfortable with her as she is very approachable and easy going which made it easy for everyone.
Kim was also extremely particular with her shots and fussed until she got it just right. This is obvious when you see her work – the photos were amazing and the colours so vivid. I can’t believe she was able to get the shots that she did while still keeping our guy asleep! Wow! Kim also really went out of her way to make the shoot unique to our baby and made sure to come up with some new poses/shots just for him which we really liked. And her poses were very modern, unique and not cheesy like a lot of photographers.
Another great thing was that Kim was very quick with her edits which was important as it meant we got our announcement cards out as soon as possible. I was also impressed as she was very organized and had tips we could use before our guy was born to make the whole process for the announcement cards even more efficient. She also took photos of my belly when I was pregnant and they were just what I was looking for, and again, ready so quickly for pick-up that we got the photo hanging in the baby room before he arrived.
She really is a person who will work with you to meet your needs. We had a great experience with Kim and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a baby/pregnancy photographer.”
~ Carley Grigg ~ Oakville, ON
“Kim was fantastic before, during, and after our indoor and outdoor family photo shoot. The day was cold and the kids were tired, but Kim found a way to make it fun for them and for us. People consistently comment on how beautiful the pics are. We are already looking forward to the next photo session!”
~ Mike & Priscilla ~ Oakville, ON
“It was a pleasure working with Kim and I would highly recommend her for your newborn photos. My husband and I are absolutely in love with the photos she took of our son, and will be able to look back at that special time in our lives through these wonderful images.”
~ Kirstyn ~ Brampton, ON
“Kirstyn and I had the privilege of having Kim take the first pictures of my new grandson ‘Sawyer’. Kim captured some amazing shots of him! She was patient, caring, creative and professional.
I highly recommend Kim, you will not be disappointed.”
Thanks again Kim you are one talented woman!

“I was the lucky recipient of Kim’s photography package at the 2011 Oakville Birth and Baby Show, but little did I know just how incredible and amazing the experience would turn out to be, from the preparation beforehand, to the studio session, our story on her website, and all the way to receiving our gorgeous photos.
Kai was just 9 days old when Kim photographed him in her studio. As a new mom, I learned a lot about being calm, quiet, patient and slow with my baby just by observing Kim’s gentle manner with him. We had no idea how he would behave during the shoot, but Kim was so relaxed and professional, and she went with his flow. She captured so many wonderful moments in her photos of Kai and of us as a family that we will treasure forever. They are a lifelong preservation of not only how tiny and beautiful he was, but also of the monumental experience and feelings we had at that time in our lives.” THANK YOU KIM!
