Edmonton Winter Portraits

Love the winter? We’re totally up for winter portrait sessions!!

Edmonton photographersWhile most families and couples want to get their portraits during the summer months, There are still a few brave souls who embrace our winters. Shooting a winter portrait in Edmonton can be challenging. Here are some of the things we want on the day we shoot the session:

  • Warm (relatively) weather. Even minus 10 can be challenging for everyone. Red noses and cheeks aren’t the most attractive (unless that’s the look you’re going for!). Batteries in the equipment don’t last as long. It can just get uncomfortable if it’s too cold!
  • Clear, sunny skies. We want one of those gorgeous clear sky winter days for your session. If it grey and gloomy, or even foggy, we’ll probably want to reschedule for a nicer day.
  • Fresh snow. We love to shoot right after a snowfall, when everything is white. It isn’t very pretty if the snow is two weeks old, dirty and half ice. We want beautiful snow!

Sometimes we end up rescheduling a time or two waiting for all the conditions to come together for the best portraits possible. But believe me, the results are worth it!!

Tarena and Dan in Jasper

Jasper provides some stunning scenery for portraits, and that’s why Tarena and Dan selected this world-class location for their engagement pictures.



Amanda and Chris – Our Last Winter Engagement session for 2012

Since Chris and Amanda are getting married in June, they thought an engagement session with a winter theme would be a nice contrast to their spring wedding memories.

Finding a winter day that isn’t too cold to be outside for a couple hours can be challenging – but we did it, and created some fun portraits!


Danny and Krystle

Krystle wanted some portraits of her with her son Danny, who turned out to be a great model!

Our kids grow up so quickly and great portraits throughout childhood just get more valuable as time goes by. Both Krystle and Danny were a joy to photograph, and we’re proud of the fun pictures we were able to create for them!

Krystle, we hope to capture more of you and Danny as he continues develop into a young man.


The Baier Family

Fall family portraits are some of the most beautiful, and when you have great subjects like the Baier family, the results are magical!


Paul and Deb

Sherwood Park continues to be one of our favourite places for outdoor pictures. Paul and Deb’s pictures turned out wonderful!


Amanda’s Grad Portraits

We stopped by Amanda’s home before the big celebration began and created some amazing portraits of a very beautiful young lady. Turns out she’s a budding photographer, too!


Leanne and Darren

Leanne was really close to her due date, but we got some great shots  her husband Darren with her before the baby was born.






Scott and Rhonda’s baby Rebecca was a joy to photograph! She’s a real doll and we got some wonderful newborn pictures for her proud parents.
