We are based in Edmonton but also cover Spruce Grove, St. Albert, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc, Devon, Sherwood Park, Stony Plain and many other towns in Alberta. We also serve the Kitchener Waterloo area.
So why would you choose us to capture your families portrait? Well for starters we are parents of two small boys that take our own photos every year. If we can make it through this, we can handle any family on the planet.
We consider it a challenge when parents say "good luck on getting my kids to smile." I have to be completely honest when I say that this is Jackie's specialty. She hasn't met a child that she wasn't able to make smile. Another concern of parents is when the children are too busy to sit and smile. We love this time because we can take some candid photos of them running, laughing, and just having fun. These are usually our clients favourite images of a family portrait session.
There is no greater piece of art to hang on your wall than a family portrait, and that is why we specialize in printed products. We want to create a masterpiece that hangs on your wall for years and makes you smile every time you walk past it.
We understood a long time ago that the secret to a happy life is surrounding yourself with people that you love. Both Jackie and I come from large, tight knit families and I think this is why we love photographing families so much because family is everything to us.
Our family portraits can be extended families with up to 20 people or a small group of 3. We are completely comfortable with large or small groups.
We love photographing families at all times of the year. Fall family portraits in Edmonton are usually the most popular because the colours are so fantastic, the summer holidays are officially over, and the kids are back in school and routines are a little more structured. With that being said summer family portraits in Edmonton is another great time to capture your memories. The leaves and flowers are in full bloom, the sun sets much later in the evening so the light is always incredible. It takes a certain family to get winter family portraits but if you are up for it we are definitely on board! The cool thing about winter is the option to use Christmas lights as a backdrop. The Legislative grounds always has so many beautiful lights up as well as City Hall. It creates a festive look that cannot be duplicated at any other time of the year.

Photographs of families become cherished heirlooms.When was the last time you had a nice family portrait? We love asking people this question because the answer is usually "so long ago I can't remember" For all of these people family is the most important thing to them but they struggle to find the time to book a family session. We suggest booking as soon as school is out for the summer, for an amazing Fall portrait session.
