A Perfect Sunny Day at Fish Creek Park
We met the Gough family on a beautiful sunny day at the Glennfield Area A of Fish Creek Park. The week before, while bike riding around the park, the family came across a lovely red shale path, which would become the backdrop for our session.
We roamed east of Glennfield Area A to reach the path and began the session with some walking shots of the group. Sarah, Brad, and their children Jesse (11), Brianna (9), and Afton (6), roamed up the shale path together. We then moved into individual portraits.
There was plenty of activity in the park on such a gorgeous day, including a science class from the local school. The area buzzed with activity and created high energy for our shoot. The beautiful fall colors, coupled with the perfect lighting amongst the trees, gave us a fabulous canvas on which to photograph the family.
We had some fun goofing around with the kids and therefore captured some great candid moments with the family. They also brought along their dog, who was the perfect subject. She was a little shy at first, but quickly learned to look at us on cue, and paid attention during the entire shoot. She was incredible!
The family wanted a photo for their Christmas card, and preferably against a background that wasn’t seasonal. We searched around and found a beautiful wall against which to photograph the group portrait. The wall had a few circle cutouts in it, so the kids excitedly filled the space with their faces!
We had a fun day in the park with the Gough family, and we hope they love their images as much as we enjoyed taking them!

An online gallery of all their images is available for the next 14 days. From the online gallery you are able to favourite images, order prints and share the gallery with your family and friends. The gallery can be accessed via the link below and you can contact Sarah and Brad directly for their secure password.
We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph the Gough family and we look forward to capturing more of their memories in the future.
