The Cote’s Family Mini Session Photos at the River Avenue Bridge in Cochrane

A Perfect Fall Afternoon over the Bow

Over the Mighty Bow River along the River Avenue Bridge

When Rene called for her family session it was only a couple days away and we were already booked for a session out in Kananaskis. However her family was in Cochrane and that was on the way home from Kananaskis and we would be arriving right at the start of Golden hour. Talk about perfect timing, and it worked for her family too.

The family was hoping to have their photos take at the Historic River Avenue Bridge that crosses over the Bow River in Cochrane, Alberta. It was originally constructed in 1926 by the Dominion Bridge Company which was once an industrial juggernaut, a giant in the industry with factories all across Canada.

As the sun began it’s decent to west with it’s rays beaming across the river below, we captured a beautiful series of shots with their family along the bridge. Some individuals by the wrought iron railing, with the river at their backs and finally in some long grass with the bridge behind them.

For a session that almost didn’t happen it was really spectacular.
