A Beautiful Autumn Morning for a Family Session
The Portrait Session at Carburn Park
For their session, we met the Uppal family at Carburn Park in southeast Calgary. Carburn Park is a lovely riverside nature area that features three large man made ponds and several walking trails. We had delightful weather that morning for the session: the sun was warm and the pond was still.
We spent nearly two hours with Nick, Kamal, and their two boys, Nihall and Sobha. Both boys are very young and adorable: Nihall is just 3 ½ and Sobha is only 20 months. We used a bunch of props for the shoot, including a wooden chair, a picture frame, and an orange blanket to reflect the fall colors all around the park. The boys even got into a little mischief toward the end and started to bring some sticks into the shoot!
We started with a few classic group shots, and then had some fun with a bunch of different poses. Working with children is always fun, and it’s often just better to see where the shoot takes us instead of trying to force strict poses. So, needless to say, we got a few adorable shots of the boys together in the leaves and lounging in the chair, wearing their matching Batman shirts.
The great weather brought tranquil water, which meant that reflections were clear and pristine. We shot a bunch of poses of the family in front of the glassy pond, with birch trees and yellow leaves bouncing up off of the surface. We then walked down a leaf strewn path with the family, all hand in hand.
Near the end of the shoot, Nihall decided to cover his little brother in lots and lots of leaves! This looked really cute for photos, but by the end poor Sobha was covered in dirt and foliage!
We had a really wonderful morning with the Uppal family, and I hope everyone enjoys their photos as much as we did capturing them.

We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph the Uppal family and we look forward to capturing more of their memories in the future.
