kathryn and chad are from saskatchewan… they were vacationing out in the beautiful columbia valley this august and contacted me about getting some photos done while they were in the area. as an original prairie girl myself, i know how amazing it is to come out to this area and enjoy the purcells and the rocky mountain ranges in every direction. when you don’t get to see it every day it’s always such a treat when you pass calgary headed west and that distinct horizon line appears. it’s such a beautiful place and the bankowskis know it pretty well. they come a few times every year to golf and ski with their two kids and often some extended family.
the bankowski’s are pros when it comes to portrait sessions, they’ve done a few and daughter avery is especially eager to have her photo taken. her brother noah would rather be out on a golf course, but did an awesome job of doing everything i asked. it was really sweet when avery said she wanted a photo of just her and her big brother… we took a few. avery was helpful with the posing and we took a special shot just of her at the end. (noah passed on the offer for his exclusive.)
kathryn’s ombre dress looked amazing against the natural setting of the grass and all of the colors that this family was wearing worked perfectly together. the mountains were gorgeous on this particular evening and we definitely took advantage of the views. thanks for a fun evening bankowskis!
