This week we shine our business spotlight on Paige Koster Photography, located at # 2 4942 – 46 St. in downtown Red Deer. A local and very talented photographer, Paige absolutely loves what she does, and it shines through in her incredible work. We were happy to meet up with Paige so we could hear more about her thriving business.
What is your business?
At Paige Koster Photography we specialize in maternity and newborn photography, but we also offer milestones, cake smashes, family and weddings. Basically, anything that falls under photography events we will do.
When did your business open?
I photographed as a hobby for as long as I can remember for friends and family, on the side and just for fun. After my maternity leave in 2017, my husband encouraged me to do it full time. So, we took the plunge the first year and in November 2017 we were registered and ready to go. A year after that we had the studio and its been a year since we moved in!
What makes your business unique?
Our biggest focus is to be able to offer solutions to every parent. We can offer customized packages and all-inclusive packages including payment plans. For example, a cake smash all-inclusive package would mean mom just brings baby and we supply everything such as the decor, the cake, anything that is needed. For a maternity package, we can supply the gown and a hair and makeup team. Weddings are obviously a little different, but we will provide an assistant on the day for no extra charge. We strive to make it as easy as possible for the client and customize it to their needs.
What are some products/services that you offer?
Newborn and maternity are our main services and we focus mostly on newborn. With the newborn, portraits and 1st-year packages we offer tier pricing so it can fit every budget. It basically comes down to what the person wants, and we can customize to that.
Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?
It is a central location, close to my home and most importantly we wanted to be somewhere that was easy for people to find and everyone knows where everything is in Downtown Red Deer. We personally love downtown in general so there really wasn’t much thought that went into it.
What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?
I think its all the things we do for Downtown Red Deer. I lived in Oshawa, Ontario and I don’t remember events happening as they do here such as the Downtown Farmers Market. That to me is amazing. I love the shops downtown, they are so cute, quaint and historical which I like.
I love Downtown Red Deer because… I love everything about Downtown Red Deer! I love that it is unique, quaint, small and historical portions. I think the DBA puts a lot of effort into maintaining it and striving to bring beauty back to the city.
Paige Koster Photography is truly a gem to have in downtown Red Deer. Paige’s professional and caring nature along with her ability to put her clients at ease have made her a favorite among Moms and Dads in Red Deer!
