Welcome to Angle of the Month where we highlight one of our favorite sessions of the month. We will take you behind the scenes and show you a unique story from A Different Angle.

Each month we will give you a brief look into what we saw and felt with each session. A picture is worth a thousand words. We hope that the pictures that we show in our Angle of the Month will tell you the story of the people that we met throughout the year.

Happy February!

We have chosen one of our favorite family sessions of 2021 to mark Family Day in Alberta this month.  We photographed Carolyn and Mike’s wedding 9 years ago.  Subsequently, we  have taken their family photos every two years with an addition to the family each time!  Check it out!

  • We are a locally based team that will capture every moment
  • We know all the best locations for photography
  • We know when the lighting will be the best for your photos
  • We can help recommend hotels and restaurants
  • We would be happy to answer any questions that you have about Jasper in general

Spontaneous Family Photo Session in Jasper

We walked into the session ready for the family portrait session, we left after nearly 3 hours of having captured the true reality of what a family is all about: laughter, screams, sword fights, and cat impersonations. We didn’t know if we were coming or going, but we knew that this is the whole reason we love photography. It is not about the perfectly posed photo- seriously does a young family just perch on a log and smile and look at the camera? Do we walk through life looking perfectly composed? No, we are messy and raw. We as photographers hold up a mirror to life- the good, bad, ugly, and beautiful. A truly spontaneous photos session in Jasper can result in pure magic!

We met up with Caroline and Mike and their 4 kids with one goal: have some fun!

We started the family session at the beautiful Pyramid Island (which is perfect for family photos by the way!!). While Caroline and Mike surveyed the scene calmly, …possibly thinking, “Oh please don’t destroy anything right now…” these kids were ready for an adventure. David and I were hovering around making sure that no one ended up in the lake. We kept our cameras up to our eyes the whole time. Because you never know when that moment is going to happen.

And then it did happen…they started sword fighting with sticks, and we captured a behind-the-scenes look into their family life. Caroline and Mike were brave enough to let us capture them as they really are with their kids: strong, loving parents who are fun too! Yes these pictures may be unposed but they tell the truth about these people, this family; that’s what matters most in all of this mayhem.

The family photo session was a blast!

The kids were constantly on the move, climbing trees, running through the forest, and finding new things to explore. We followed them around as they led us on an adventure. Every time we thought we had them posed for a shot, they would quickly break out into laughter or start goofing off. It was pure chaos but it was “REALfamily” life.

These are the moments that we love to capture- the in-between moments when nobody is quite posing correctly and life is just happening.

At the end of the session, we had captured many photos- both posed and candid. We were so excited to share them with Caroline and Mike. We are so grateful that they entrusted us to photograph their family once again- this time, capturing the unposed moments of life.
