Penticton Family Photography

As a Penticton family photographer, my job to help your family relaxed and be able to be yourselves. In order to authentic portraits of your family, you need to be able to feel free to act naturally. I use prompts and suggestions to help your family tune into your own relationships. I’ll make sure that you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and hopefully, you’ll even start to forget that I’m even there taking pictures and you enjoy your time together as a family.

While I do make sure we get at least one or two “smiling at the camera” shots, I put more emphasis on capturing the real life moments that portray who your family really is.  The kids get to play, run, laugh and have fun. I’m here to make it as easy and effortless as possible.
I capture a variety of different combinations to make sure you have a photo of each, special relationship in your family. Some of the different combinations I include are:

  • the whole family
  • just the kids
  • each child
  • just mom & dad
  • mom with all the kids
  • mom with each child
  • dad with all the kids
  • dad with each child
  • mom and dad, with kids playing in the frame
  • family spending time together (candid shots)

Penticton is the perfect backdrop for family photos.

Penticton has the most amazing variety in scenery. I am an avid hiker, camper and backpacker along with my own family. I have explored every nook and cranny of this gorgeous valley. If you have a vision for the kind of backdrop that you want for your photos, I have a location to match. I can take you to hidden gems that you will end up returning to on your own! Whether you would like your family photos taken at a lake, in the mountains, in a forest, in a field, or in rolling hills- I have the perfect location for you.

I photograph families from Osoyoos to Kelowna, but if you live further away and would love a session, get in touch and we will make it happen!

Penticton Family Photography- Extended Family Sessions

Extended family sessions are so much fun! I love working with multiple families, grandparents, siblings, cousins, and more. There is so much energy and history that makes for really genuine and authentic portraits. These photos will be so precious to you as time goes on. The family grows together, which means your photos become snapshots of this stage of your family’s life. I will help your family coordinate outfits for the most beautiful, frame-worthy photographs. Don’t wait for a wedding to get professional photos of your extended family!

From Digital Files to Framed Prints & Canvases

There’s nothing that brings me more joy than seeing the photographs I took on my client’s walls! My photograpy is warm, light & airy. It goes with any type of decor. It has the right balance of warmth, color & neutrals to be very appealing on walls as art. The real connection that you’ll feel with your family will shine through in your photos, making you feellove for your family every time you look at them. I have partnered with one of the best printing companies in Canada for color accurate printing with quality that always impresses. Right from the online digital gallery which I send you, you can order:

  • prints
  • enlargements
  • framed prints (so easy to just order and hang!)
  • canvases
  • acrylics (my personal favorite)
  • cards

I also have partnered with a luxury photobook company. Pick your favorite photos or let me choose, and order designed-for-you, flat-lay photo books and heirloom albums. These albums are incredible works of art themselves. I always recommend ordering a photobook or heirloom album for each annual family photo session so that when the kids are all grown up and having children of their own, you can look back with them upon these fond memories. It just feels different to have your photos in your hands. These photobooks will not fade or change over time, making them an incredible investment.

Your Penticton family photographer

I would love to be your Penticton family photographer! With plenty of experience photographing families as well as raising my own children, I get that families want quality photos in a fun, stress-free manner that showcase the bond between the family over all else. I photograph the details that you don’t want to forget. I capture the real smiles and connections. My families love the Okanagan landscape, cherish each other, and value their time. I work efficiently to get every combination you can imagine as well as many candid shots (my favorite!).
