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.

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 :)

Sarah + Logan actually met at my annual May Long cabing weekend.  Sarah is one of my closest friends and a mutual friend came over with some of his buddies one of which being Logan.  As Sarah says it was an instant connection! Fast forward two years and these two love birds now have beautiful twin boys and are getting married next summer.  It's always so wonderful to see your close friends meet their soul mate and see how happy they are!  When Sarah asked if I would take their engagement photos of course I said yes; I love photographing my close friends.

Here is the Walden family lifestyle session; this family has so much together and so many laughs were had while photographing them :)

My beautiful friend Olivia booked a family session for her, her daughter, siblings, and nephew this past May as a birthday present for their mother.  I love when clients book sessions for presents as photos are such a great gift especially when it's been years since this group has had a professional photo taken of all of them together.  I had so much fun at this photo session, the kids are so adorable and gave some of the best expressions in their photos! Plus what a gorgeous family!

The Kehler's are another super fun beautiful family that I am so lucky to photograph every year!  Josh and I attended photography school together and it's always a privilige to photograph another photographer's family!  I always have so much photographing this family, and it is so cool to see how much their young children change from year to year.  This year they decided to keep it simple and have the session right in their backyard!  I loved this idea as they just finished the yard this summer and the kids had fun being able to play on their backyard swing/play set!

Meet the Gerlinsky's, a super cute family with the most adorable two boys.  For a November session the weather was incredible, although the family had hoped for snow, I mean who would have thought that there would have been no snow at the end of November, it was still so beautiful outside for photos! I had so much fun photographing this beautiful family :)

The MacDougall family's beautiful fall lifestyle session is featured on the blog today!  I am so lucky that I get to photograph so many amazing families and the MacDougall's are no different.  This family is so super close and so beautiful inside and out!  I loved getting to capture some of the sweet moments between the grandparents and grandkids.  The little ones were just so so cute together!
