Banff Family Photography

Lifestyle photography for Families who want candid photos in the mountains

A trip to Banff National Park is the perfect time to update your family portraits. As you enjoy time in the mountains with your loved ones, consider the value of capturing these moments forever. Our Banff family photography sessions are designed to document your family candidly and authentically against the stunning backdrop of the Rockies.

These photos aren’t just snapshots; they’re a timeless testament to the joy of your family adventures. Because, before you know it, those tiny hands and feet gripping rocks and exploring the wilderness will soon be replaced by the fast-paced adventure of your kids growing up right before your eyes.

You’re looking for a family photographer who can capture the real, unscripted moments. We go beyond cheesy, stiff poses to create images that show off your real love and connection.


Combine our local Banff National Park location knowledge with lifestyle family photo expertise and you’re guaranteed beautiful images. Make the stunning Banff landscapes a lasting part of your family photos—an ideal way to remember the beautiful memories of your time spent here.


Your family photography session is tailored to your preferences and what suits your family best. Since most of our clients travel from abroad, our goal is to be flexible and adapt to your family’s needs, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

My business is based in Golden BC. Other locations that we work in frequently (for no extra travel fees) are Revelstoke, Invermere, Banff National Park, Canmore, and Calgary.

Please do — we can add a modest travel fee or waive it entirely if there are multiple bookings in your area.

Usually between 45-90 minutes depending on group size and ages.

A little bit of bad weather looks great in photos. Clouds in the sky or a storm on the horizon add depth and interest, some of my favourite sessions have been on moody days.

In general, sessions will go ahead through most weather unless we decide it’s too extreme. In that case, we reschedule to the next day.

This is my most asked question — included with your booking is a guide to get you started and then I will personally help with this.


Definitely — our furry friends are part of the family too. They unfortunately don’t get to be with us as long as we would like (forever) so it’s nice to include them in photos.

Let me know if you would like to bring them so I can plan a dog-friendly location for us.

Yes, your photos will be edited in a timeless style that prioritizes true-to-life skin tones and I have experience working with people from all backgrounds.

My photography business usually books in advance and is very busy, but occasionally can accept last-minute bookings, please reach out.

No, there is a lot of value in taking our time to let everyone settle in and create candid images. Our sessions are normally 45-90 minutes.

I am partnered with multiple professional printing labs across the world, including in the US, GB and AUS. Your print products will be ordered from the closest lab possible to keep shipping costs down.

“We had an exceptional experience with Jena from start to finish. We are a family of four that came from out of town, she gave us suggestions on what to wear before we even left our home. She was very patient with our girls, a very shy three-year-old and a mobile one-year-old.

She captured family photos we could only dream of, and the beautiful landscape was incredible.

We have had family photo sessions before, but this exceeded our expectations by far. We wish we lived closer to work with her again.”
