Every year I get to photograph this beautiful family and we often do the session in the Kehler's backyard.  This year it was a little cold outside so since their next door neighbours have a gorgeous home we decided to take advantage of this have a fun indoor session next door and then end it with a few fun photos in their own backyard. I always look forward to photographing this family, we have been friends for a long time and life has taken us in different directions so this photo session often becomes our annual visit.

Let's start this post by saying how much I love winter family sessions!  There is just something so fun and beautiful about taking photos in the snow!

Here is another gorgeous family I photographed back in the fall!  This family was so much fun to hang out with; this made it so easy to capture so many great moments between them!  The day was a little chilly and drizzly but everyone managed to stay warm as we trekked through the park and found some great backgrounds.  Here are some of the highlights from the Dopko family :) 

Meet the Davis Family.  I got to photograph this beautiful family over the Thanksgiving weekend which was perfect as their daughters were home.  This family lives out at Sandy Beach which was such a perfect location for photos, plus it helped that Ken knows the area so well so he had some great spots that I would have never found.  I had so much fun photographing this family and I loved that they included their fur babies for a few shots.  Here are some of the favourites from the session. 

Meet my beautiful friend Brittany, who recently celebrated her 30th birthday!  

This girl has such a great energy and is so much fun to be around that it only seemed right to do a cake smash photo shoot to celebrate! Brittany is one of my closest friends and it was so awesome getting to celebrate with her and even more awesome watching her chug champagne and smash her homemade birthday cake!  I can't even begin to describe how many laughs were had at this fun shoot!  Definitely one of my favourite photo shoot's I've done :)

Every year I look forward to photographing this beautiful family, that I am so happy to also be able to call them friends, and I was really excited this year as they decided to mix it up a bit and instead of having their session in the summer out at Loon Lake, they chose to do it in the winter.  I love winter sessions, with the snow and evening light they are some of the most beautiful sessions to photograph.  As always I had so much fun photographing the Krauss Family, it was a little chilly out but everyone was awesome and such good sports about playing in the snow.

Meet Maryann + Patrick a super cute couple who were looking for something different and fun for their couple's session.  Having gone to the UofA with Patrick we were Facebook friends and when he saw a recent shoot I did for myself he reached out and wanted to get his fiance a photo session for her upcoming birthday.  He mentioned they've never had professional photos done together and weren't into a 'traditional' couple's shoot but thought it would be fun to have some great photos taken of the two of them showing their personalities and interests they share.

Every year I am so lucky to photograph this beautiful family.  I have been friends with Josh for over 10 years now since we were both in photography school and it's always such an honour to photograph another photographer's family.  This family is awesome, they are full of so much love and energy and it's always a good time with them!  Here are some of the favourite images from The Kehler family's 2016 lifestyle session :)

Meet the Bennett family, this family is so much fun to photograph.  Not only are they a gorgeous family, their youngest daughter is such a spitfire and has the most amazing and entertaining personality that she keeps everyone laughing and having a good time!  Here are some of the favourite images from the Bennet's Family Lifestyle session :)

Meet the Masterman family.  

I first got to know this beautiful family when I photographed their youngest daughter's wedding a couple years ago.  I love photographing this family, there is so much love between them and even more laughs; they definitely know how to have a good time together!  This was definitely a fun photo session on what was such a gorgeous evening!  The lighting, the trees, everything was so perfect for photos.  Here are some of the highlights from the Masterman's family lifestyle session :)
