This family knew that while they were on vacation in Banff, they wanted to advantage of the stunning landscape and book a family photography session. A visit to the Banff National Park and Rocky Mountains is one to remember forever and definitely a great occasion to create beautiful family photos.

Family Photography in Banff

The Fossum family knew they wanted a family photography session in Banff. They hadn’t updated their family photos in years. It had been so long that their youngest child was just a baby in their last photos. Every few years they enjoy a family vacation together, so this year they chose Banff. Since they would be visiting one of the most beautiful places in the world, they decided to book a family photography session with me. When we chatted about their family photos, they shared that they wanted candid and relaxed looking family portraits in the mountains.

We chose the Mt Norquay Lookout for their family photography session. This is a great photo location because of the beautiful mountain / valley view, is easy to get to, and has loads of room to move around. I met them at the lookout just before sunset to create beautiful family portraits for them. We spent time got to know each other, explored the area, and took in the beautiful Banff mountain view.

This family is full of so much love and playfulness, they made my job too easy. As a family photographer, my approach is always to let your family dynamic emerge naturally. This is my favourite way to create family photos that are candid and genuine. This is especially great for families with older children as they can share stories with me. These three kids were so lovely during their family photography session. They shared family memories, funny jokes, and their favourite hobbies and foods with me. We all agreed that exploring the mountains and eating great snacks were some of our favourite things ever.
