A milestone birthday is an excellent reason to get the family together. When the celebration weekend also includes extended family photos at Big Hill Springs Park…well, that really is super!! Fortunate for me, I was the one they chose to photograph their wonderful family! It was great to get to know them and we enjoyed our time out west too.
A change of plans came days prior to the shoot with much of their family needing to travel to England. Which meant changing the location from the parent’s home further north in Alberta to a location around Calgary. The first spot that came to mind was a park I used to photograph at starting my business in Alberta. Big Hill Springs worked great!! The water was flowing and we had a couple waterfalls for backdrops. Thankfully it wasn’t too muddy and we had fun getting to know a new family in these pretty surroundings. They enjoy to spend time outside, have a great sense of humor and it was entertaining watching them tease and joke with one another. Their sweet crew of kids did amazing on a cool, early spring afternoon. They were cute little explorers! Happy to find sticks and play by the stream.
Thank you to the Pearman extended family for all your efforts to make this session fun and enjoyable! Being with you all that day energized me and I didn’t want to pack away my camera at the end. Enjoy the many memories, thank you all so much!!
Also thank you to my husband for being my favorite guy to have along at photo shoots, the timing worked well that he could be away from work.
