I Love Multi Generational Family Shoots with Grandparents!

I shot The Paulson family last fall on a cold windy day. We fought an approaching rain storm the entire shoot but they were troopers and the results were awesome! So when their extended family wanted to do some photos, including Grandpa and Grandma, they thought of me. I was so flattered and couldn’t wait to do it!

Well…. the entire day it poured RAIN! LOL As the time came closer for the evening shoot I was hoping, praying, chanting, burning sacrifices, trying anything and everything to get the rain to stop, all the while looking for another location for the shoot. Then 30 minutes before the shoot the rain stopped! YYYYIPPEEE!!!! I love the Rundle Ruins in downtown Calgary, such an amazing backdrop for a portrait session.

Thanks guys, you were all so much fun!!!

50 years of wedded bliss!

Now that’s a long time. If he keeps this up she just might end up keeping him! 

Shooting a large group can be intimidating but if you think of them as a smaller size and not 15 people, slow down, look at everyone’s pose, face, and shoot multiple image of each set up just to make sure you get at least one shot with everyone’s eye open you’ll nail it.

paulson family session

I’ve known this family for a few years so I was thrilled when they asked me to shoot their family portraits.  We had a cold windy evening, in Fishcreek Park and we were praying the rain would hold off for us and it did.


They were so much fun, everything I wanted them to do, including the “super slow-mo walk, while pretending you’re having the time of your life”, they nailed.


Just look at mom and dad’s amazing matching blue eyes!
