Jennifer Kapala

Based in Calgary, I am a multiple award winning child and family photographer and the 2014 National Association Child Photographer of the Year and am a NAPCP Ambassador. Always seeking to improve my craft, I maintain an active membership in the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) and a Craftsman Member of the Masters Photographers International. Teaching and sparking a light in others is a passion of mine and I have taught photography courses at  Babyf in Madrid, in Santa Barbara at the National Association of Professional Child Photographers Retreat, and various local camera clubs.  Underwater family and child photography is both a love and a niche and out of wanting to build a community, I founded UnderwaterKids to offer education and resources to the growing field of underwater photographers.

Hello! I have enjoyed 11 years as a professional photographer in Calgary. My main focus is newborn, child and family photography with lots of corporate work thrown in for fun as well. I continue to develop my art attending workshops, learning online and creating personal projects. I have a huge passion for travel & culture that encourages me to seek out opportunities beyond Alberta. I have enjoyed photography assignments that tell the stories of organizations abroad in Nepal, Hawaii, St Lucia, and Tibet. I receive huge amounts of joy teaching others how to express themselves through this fascinating medium. I work with kids with my ‘Photography Through Literacy’ programs in schools and my Kids Photography Academy online. And of course, I love teaching adults too and I look forward to meeting you soon!
