Rocky Mountain Family Photographers
Why Golden BC is the ideal place for your mountain family portraits.
Golden BC is home to the rocky mountains and many great photographers.
Welcome to Golden BC. I love living and having my photography business here. Each year, many travelers visit our area to enjoy the rocky mountains and the outdoors with their families. There is something here for everybody and we love having you here to visit the mountains.
No matter what inspired you to visit Golden BC/Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, I always recommend documenting your trip with photographs. The Town of Golden is a small ski town nestled at the intersection of The Rocky, The Selkirk, and The Purcell Mountains. Golden BC is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. I think that your visit here is the best time to book Candid Family Portraits or Your Baby’s First Year sessions in the mountains.
The Town of Golden is nestled right in the Rocky Mountains (and two other mountain ranges) and is home to Kicking Hores Mountain Resort. It is truly is one of the most beautiful places in the world and the best time to book family portraits.
Here is everything you need to know about Candid Family Portraits and Your Baby’s First Year sessions in the Rocky Mountains:
1. Before your Rocky Mountain portrait session:
Our first step together is to find a date/time for your pre-consultation. Normally, this appointment happens in your home and lasts between 1-2 hours. If you are located outside of Golden BC we can easily schedule a video call. The goal of your pre-consultation is so that we can begin to get to know each other and so you can tell me all about what you are looking for. During your pre-consultation, we will go over location ideas, wardrobe, and how you want to display your photographs afterward. The pre-consultation is an important step to creating candid and authentic Rocky Mountain family photographs.

2. During your Rocky Mountain Family Photography:
During your mountain photo session is your time to relax and enjoy time with your loved ones. Sessions are easy-going with lots of chatting and movement. Rocky Mountain family photographs are perfect for families who feel at home in the mountains and embrace the outdoors. If you are a bit nervous in front of the camera, there is no need to worry. Photography sessions are designed to make you feel comfortable, create authentic moments and to capture real emotions. Your Photographers job is to help you relax and be yourself. Part of feeling comfortable is being prepared for your outdoor photography session. I have a great article about everything you need to know for outdoor photography sessions!
*Parent disclaimer: Kids are encouraged to run around and have fun during photo sessions. They are free to be themselves and you are free not to have to worry about them sitting still. We play lots of games and move around a lot so they are entertained and having fun while also creating beautiful portraits without even knowing it. That being said, if things really go south and the kids are in full meltdown we can try your photo session again the next day at no extra charge.
3. After your photo session:
After we finish taking portraits in front of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, we have one more appointment together. Next, we will meet up or schedule a video call for your Viewing and Ordering Appointment. This is where you will see your beautiful portraits for the first time. At this appointment, I will help you select which images you would like to purchase. I have a beautiful line of print and display products for you to choose from and everything can be easily shipped within Canada and the US.
As your Rocky Mountain Family Photographer, not only do I love to create stunning portraits for you, but I also love to help you print them out. In my experience, most families love the majority of their portraits. Typically, my clients select one or two favourite images to display as Wall Art and purchase the rest in a Book/Album or Digital Package. Each photo purchased for print comes with the identical digital copy so you can share with everyone online too. You can have your digital images right away on an engraved wooden USB and your printed products will be drop-shipped to you back home (for Canadian and U.S. residents only).
*Same Day Service Available:
In most cases with enough notice, I can offer your family the same or next-day service. This means that you can see your photos a few hours later or the next day. This is ideal for families who are only visiting Golden or Kicking Horse Mountain Resort for a few days. Or if you would prefer to wait until you are back home we can arrange a video call once your trip is over.
