Emerald Lake is one of the most beautiful places in the world. A visit there is also a great time for a family photography session. With the stunning mountain range and iconic green lake colour, it really is an incredible location. It was such a pleasure meeting this family at Emerald Lake for a photo session with their six-month-old daughter this Spring. During their road trip through the Rocky Mountains, they wanted to update their family photos. We all agreed that Emerald Lake would be the perfect location for their family photography session.

Family Photography at Emerald Lake

At Emerald Lake, there are endless lakeside and mountain view spots for a family photography session. It's such a great photo location because there is room for small children to explore and there are beautiful views in all directions. This means that we can take a casual stroll around the lake and create beautiful family photography at the same time. Since there is old forest, mountains and lake views, your family photos will have lots of variety and natural scenes. A family photography session at Emerald Lake is a great way to create candid, mountain portraits.

The Price Family Photos

I met the Price family through an online Facebook group. Sara is a super talented photographer and mentioned that her family was on a road trip through the Rocky Mountains. They knew they wanted to update their family photos while on this trip and I recommended Emerald Lake. I live just west of Emerald Lake in Golden BC and photograph families there all the time. Since it's very easy to get to and incredibly beautiful, it is definitely one of my favourite family photo locations. We met up at Emerald Lake one evening for their photos.

Myself, Jo and Sara, and their six-month-old daughter strolled around the lake until we found a quiet little spot for their photos. Once the sun starts to set at Emerald Lake, you can see a beautiful reflection of the mountains in the water. We chatted about their trip and created some beautiful family photography for them. It was a really beautiful evening.
