Hello! I am Dominique McKeil!
I am your Newborn and Pregnancy Photographer for the Fredericton and surrounding area! To say that I adore babies, would be an absolute understatement but, for the sake of this introduction, that is the best word I can think of!! I have developed a true passion for capturing these tiny beings in their first days of birth!
But, who am I? Well, I am Dominique Martine McKeil and I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and I am the youngest of seven siblings. I know...YES - SEVEN! I'm not entirely sure how my Mama did it, but she is such an inspiration!
My life brought me to New Brunswick in ‘97 and by this time, most of my siblings were graduated and off attending college, so I finished up my high school, post-secondary and later met and married my incredible husband, Jonathan. We have one son, Jase and we are the proud fur parents to three beautiful rescues: Rylee (15), Nikka (3), and Oliver (2). We just love them all to pieces.
Now, my journey with photography has always been ongoing but was somewhat in the background for many years. Over the last 14 years, my primary career has been in the legal industry, with the Province of New Brunswick as a certified Paralegal and I continue to work at present with the Province as a Court Stenographer within the Department of Justice and Office of the Attorney General. With my full-time career, I didn’t begin to devote notable time to my photography passion until after our son was born in March of 2014. Since that time, I have been working hard to provide a professional experience to my clients that they will always remember and cherish. An experience full of relaxation, comfort and of course, timeless beautiful captures that will last a lifetime and ones you can proudly display in your home! Both in my professional and person life, I pride myself on being consistent, detail oriented and feeding my creativity. I take those extra minutes during our sessions to perfect the details: the pose, the light, the backdrop and place those fingers and toes, just so, and brush away those tiny hairs from babe’s face. These are the details that refine a portrait to me.
I cannot wait to hear from you and can not wait to meet and capture your very own exquisite creation!
