On a beautiful spring day I visited Brad and Yuliya at the home in South Calgary. Throughout the months of March and February we had been experiencing huge snow storms followed by Chinooks that melted or turned what didn’t melt into ice. This was as typical for this cycle as we had just recently had a snow storm and mother nature was busy melting it all away. In their home we used their living room, fireplace and the Jakes nursery for their shoot. For the shoot baby Jake was all smiles which was perfect for the family group photos.
We meet with Justine, Time and little Logan at the Angel’s Cappuccino and Ice Cream shop on the north side of the Bow River Pathway. Crossing the bridge takes you over the the Edworthy Park Picnic Area where they have all these beautiful rows of trees. Justine brought along a water proof picnic blanket and we brought a rustic brown blanket for the family to sit on. Nestled under the sweeping branched of the Edworthy evergreens we went to work photographing Logan and his parents.
