Golden BC Family Photography

Welcome to Golden BC, you and your family are going to love it here. Golden BC is for the adventurous, the community-oriented, and the slow-livers. Our little mountain town has a lot to offer and we welcome your family.

Something I highly recommend to do while you are here amongst the mountains is to update your family portraits. As a born and raised local and Professional Photographer, I can tell you with confidence that there is no place more beautiful for family photography than Golden BC.

Golden BC is home to the intersection of three mountain ranges and two glacial rivers. There is no shortage of beautiful locations for your family photography. While you and your family are here, make sure to set aside a morning or evening for family photography. In just one hour, we will create beautiful portraits of your family and celebrate this special time in the mountains. Even better, your family portraits will be printed out and waiting for you when you get back home.

★★★★★ — “Jena’s work speaks for itself. She captures stories with her professionalism and talent, as well as her open mind and heart. We treasure our family portraits and are so happy we had them done.”

The beautiful home to three mountain ranges and two glacial rivers.

Golden BC is home to three mountain ranges — the Selkirk, Purcell, and Rocky Mountains — and the confluence of the Columbia and Kicking Horse rivers. There are ancient cedars, alpine lakes, and wildflower fields here. I feel incredibly lucky to have been born and raised here. Now as a Professional Photographer, there was no doubt that I would run my portrait photography business here. With endless beautiful locations, it is such a treat to create portraits here.


The perfect place to update your family portraits.

I grew up here in Golden BC and continue to live here. Mostly because it’s so beautiful and the community here is incredible. When I am not being a Photographer, I can be found mountain biking, walking the dog, or downhill skiing. Anything that involves exploring the mountains here in Golden, and I down.

My hobbies have actually led me to some stunning locations that I frequently use for family photography. If you and your family have a particular location that you love, great! If you are not familiar with the area though, I always have a few great locations for your family photography on hand.


It’s OK, I am an expert with kids.

First of all, congratulations on traveling with children. I know it ain’t easy. As a family photographer, I have become an expert at photographing children.

As a rule, I never expect them to sit perfectly still or be perfectly behaved. What I mean is that during your family photography in Golden BC, I encourage your kids to explore and be themselves. Throughout my years of being a family photographer, I have discovered what works best with kids. We will find a location that they can explore, go on scavenger hunts, and play games. These are all ways that we will engage your kids and create beautiful candid portraits. Your children get to have a fun time, you don’t have to worry about them, and we create your beautiful family photography. It’s a win-win-win.


Then lifestyle photography is for you.

Playing games with your children, talking about favourite memories, and moving around is how we create great candid family photography. It’s actually called lifestyle photography. This is my favourite type of family photography to create for several reasons.

First, lifestyle family photography takes the pressure off of you. There won’t be any standing and posing. I will tell you where to be and give you gentle direction when you need it. After that, we will talk, share, and play with the kids all while creating your family portraits. Even the most camera shy individuals find that they can settle into lifestyle photography. Everyone becomes comfortable when they are just being themselves and spending time with the people they love. It’s easy, I promise.


You’re on the move, take advantage of same day turn-around.

Since you are probably on the move, traveling through the Rocky Mountains, you have two options for your family photography.

Same Day Service: If you and your family would like to see your portraits on the same day that we photograph them, great! After we create your family photography in Golden BC, I can have your portraits ready to view later that day or the next morning. You can select your favourites and I will finish your portraits while you continue your vacation.

Wait Until You’re Home: Or if you and your family would rather see your portraits after you are settled back home, that is fine too. We will organize a video call so you can see your family photography at that time.


While you finish your vacation, I will design, print, and ship your portraits to you.

I always take family photography one step further by helping you print your images. Not only are we going to create beautiful family portraits for you, but we are also going to print them.

This means that after we take your portraits, we will get together one more time — either in person or via video call — so you can select which images you’d like to print out.

In general, the majority of my clients select their absolute favourite image that they want to see every day for hanging up on the wall. Since Golden BC is so beautiful, it’s like having a gorgeous landscape print on your wall, but with your family in it.

After that, the remainder of your family photographs can be printed as a storybook in the Heirloom Album.

None of this requires any extra work by you. The only thing you have to do is tell me which images you would like to see up on your walls. While you and your family finish their adventure in Golden BC, I will do all of the work for you. This means that I will design, print, and ship your images right to your home. This way, your Golden BC family vacation will be enjoyed forever. Your printed family photography will be there to remind you of this favourite trip each time you look at it.


The sooner, the better.

To guarantee that I am available on the dates that you are here in Golden BC, make sure to get in touch as soon as possible. In general, our area is very busy during the Summer months. For this reason, get in touch as soon as you know when you are coming!

If you aren’t sure which dates you will be in Golden BC, get in touch anyway. I can get you on my calendar and we can always refine the dates when you know more about your family vacation.

I can’t wait to hear from you and work together.
