Stephen Avenue Family Session: Adam + Catherine

Stephen Avenue Family Session: Adam + Catherine

Stephen-Avenue-Family-Photoshoot-5.jpg

 I had such a great time photographing this family - they were so laid back and fun to hang out with! Despite the cold wind and snow that fell in the morning, it cleared up just in time for our session on Stephen Avenue. I don't often get to shoot downtown Calgary, so I was excited for the change of scenery!

And seriously.. have you ever seen a family's outfits be more perfectly coordinated? I think I should hire Catherine to be my official outfit coordinator...

Inglewood and Fish Creek Park Engagement: Katie and Geoff

Inglewood and Fish Creek Park Engagement: Katie and Geoff

150611_KatieGeoff-71.jpg

Katie & Geoff.. oh man. These two are the best. I first met them at Cafe Beano on a Friday morning and from the moment we met, I knew I was going to be a big fan of these two.

My fiance Eric laughs at me because I always tell him how I secretly want to be friends with all my clients, and I can certainly say that about these two. Katie & Geoff were just as interested in getting to know me and about my recent engagement as they were about their own.

While they were both nervous at the thought of an engagement session, they absolutely rocked it. We met in Inglewood and then finished our session down at Fish Creek Park. The gorgeous light and adorable couple made for some of my favourite photos to date.

Katie & Geoff, thanks for being such good sports and putting your trust in me as your photographer. I had so much fun with you guys and cannot wait to document your big day in August!

My second shoot dedicated to supporting The School Sessions was with my beautiful cousin Andrea! Andrea came down all the way from Edmonton to support this cause and I'm so glad she did! Despite the very, VERY chilly wind that Calgary brought, Andrea toughed it out and we got some beautiful photos of her and her nieces down at Sandy Beach. Thanks again Andrea for supporting this awesome project!

Prince's Island Park Session: Alyssa & Stuart

  The day has finally come! My sister and I finally live in the same city again! And am I sure loving having her back in Calgary - especially when she asks if I can take some pictures of her and her husband Stuart for their Christmas card (which I designed for them and will blogging about as soon as we get them back from the printer!). We snuck in a quick session during Stuart's lunch break at Prince's Island Park downtown Calgary and then promptly headed back to the car to warm up. Thanks for toughing out the cold weather you two! Welcome back to Calgary!

I love walking through life with people and witnessing the joys that life brings - I love it even more when I get to document it with my camera. You may have seen my past post about Aletha and Byron's engagement session and then again about their wedding. Well I am so excited to share with you photos with the newest addition to the Brooks family - little Max! We met on a sunny day at the end of September near their home and I have to say - it's never difficult getting a good picture of these two. Add on an adorable little boy and you get the photos below.

These two are just the cutest. And no, I'm not biased - I would still think they were cute even if one of them WASN'T my cousin. I had asked these two if I could take a few photos of their adorable selves, and they happily obliged. We met at Alouette lake, and even though they swore they would be awkward, it only took a couple photographs for the awkward to fade away and their love for one another come through.

I had so much fun shooting with you two! Thanks for being such willing and lovely subjects :)

Enjoy!

Yes, that's right. Their names are Eric and Erica. It doesn't get much sweeter than that. These two were an absolute joy to work with. They are both such lovely people, and the photos we got from our Gastown engagement session turned out perfectly. DeannaCupido- EricErica-1 DeannaCupido-9982 DeannaCupido-0076 DeannaCupido--3 DeannaCupido--4

Lexxie and Bryce are the perfect kind of people to photograph. We arrived at Deer Lake park and took about 3 photos before it started pouring rain. As they hid under my reflector, I asked them if they still wanted to get their photos done. They did, and luckily we were close to the Burnaby Heritage Museum, so we decided to head over there to get out of the rain. I'm almost glad it poured that day, because otherwise we wouldn't have ended up with these sweet photos! Thanks Lexxie and Bryce for sticking it out and letting me take your photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

A few weeks ago, these two lovebirds came to visit for a couple days on their vacation. Knowing that they make for wonderful subjects, I asked if I could take a picture or two of them as practice for my portfolio. Because they are beautiful people, inside and out, they of course said yes. Thanks for waking up early and toughing it out in the rain Alicia and Brad! I hope you love these photos as much as I do!

I was blessed with the opportunity to catch up with these two gorgeous people over the Christmas break. Even though we were originally just going to meet for coffee, I found myself in a bind and needed to photograph an assignment for school, so these two came to the rescue! I wanted to photograph "signs of affection", and this is what I got (it really wasn't all that difficult as you can probably tell). Thanks Jess and Dan for helping me out!

I'm so happy I was able to spend Christmas with this wonderful family over break. I miss these guys so much, so it was nice being able to catch up and take some photos. It was also Frank's first time experiencing snow, so of course we had to take pictures of that. 2013-Braun-6129 Copyright 2014 Deanna Rachel Photography-3 Copyright 2014 Deanna Rachel Photography-2

I originally had this photoshoot booked for the middle of the summer in Calgary, however complications arose and we had to postpone. With myself moving to Vancouver in September, we thought that we had missed our chance to do a shoot, but when it was decided that I would be spending Thanksgiving in Canmore, Nicole and I jumped on the opportunity to get their photos done out there! I'm so happy that our paths crossed and I could see this family again. This was their second shoot with me, and this time, Sean's sister's family and their parents were added to the mix! Despite the brisk October mountain air, I had so much fun meeting new faces and snapping photos of their adorable children (seriously... so cute!!).

A few weekends ago I was up in Leduc visiting Eric's parents with some of my favourite people, including little Frank (Eric's nephew). A lazy afternoon, a new camera (yay for me!) and an adorable little boy was the perfect equation for an impromptu photo shoot. I love the faces this kid can make...

I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing my best friend and her wonderful boyfriend Brad on a freezing winter's day in Calgary. Despite the -20°C temperatures and an impulsive shopping trip to buy a memory card, I thoroughly enjoyed snapping the following adorable photos of these two. Their photogenicness (is that a word??) made them very easy subjects, and I still can't believe how cute these photos turned out to be. Enjoy!

This was my very first family portrait session, and I was very pleased with the results! I've babysat these kids and been friends with the Sean and Nicole for a couple years, so it was very special to have them be my first subjects.
