  • Janelle Awe Photography

    I am a Central Alberta Photographer located in Bowden...between Calgary and Red Deer. Janelle Awe Photography came about when I decided to use my camera skills from school to get out of the house. My amazing husband and I had 3 babes in 17 months and I was loving being at home with them but needed a creative outlet. Capturing my family made me fall in love with lifestyle photography, newborn, toddler and family photography. I have also had the opportunity to photograph a number of weddings and I have to say, spending such an important day with a couple truly in love is amazing! ...and travel? I love to travel so call me if you are planning your destination wedding!

Central Alberta Family Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Early Morning Dickson Water at Glennifer Lake

My family is so lucky to live only a few short minutes away from this amazing body of Dickson water at Glennifer Lake. I love coming here during the summer to camp with my family or capture photos of other families.

I decided this would be a fun spot to meet Ina and her boys. Ina has been blessed with this amazing little guy in her life who is super busy and this lake was the perfect location for him to explore and for me to capture it.

Ina and I first met while attending the fashion program at Ryserson University in Toronto. I love it when she comes home to Alberta and asks me to spend some of this special time with her and her family…

I love being able to photograph this amazing family they’ve built.

Central Alberta Wedding Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Melissa and Doug Montana Ranch Wedding

Saturday’s bride…a very amazing and talented lady who I was so lucky to have taught at Olds College and even luckier to have captured at her wedding! Melissa married a man with a personality that you are drawn to. They are that couple that will always be surrounded by so many friends and tonnes of love.

They were not only surrounded by supporting family and friends, but also by mountains, trees, horses, and pure beauty. They tied the knot at the Bar W Guest Ranch in Montana.

Thank you Melissa and Doug for inviting me to spend some time with you on this special day…

A few shots from this wedding. A gorgeous location, fun group, and amazing couple…

the anticipation…

    Hi Janelle,

    Just wanted to drop you a note… It was so nice to meet you at Melissa and Doug’s wedding on Saturday. These pictures are amazing! I can’t wait to see the rest of them.

    Thank you a thousand times for capturing the beauty of the day!ReplyCancel

Central Alberta Newborn Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Baby Nash and his pup

I have to say that since I’ve changed my ‘studio’ style newborn baby photography to more of a ‘lifestyle’ type of shooting, I have really fallen in love with it.

There is less stress ~ baby can stay home sweet home.
Everything is there for Mom and Dad including baby wipes, food, and TV for those moments when Dad can take five!
It allows me to capture the baby room and special gifts.
But my favorite part of all is getting those surprise shots you don’t get in the studio like Nash’s dog, Finn ~ just making sure everything is okay with his new friend ~ so sweet.

Olds Alberta Family Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Rosehill Family on the Farm

Growing up in Olds, I’ve known Jay and his family for quite a while and have just recently gotten to know his wife, Dale. We headed out to the farm where Jay grew up just outside of Olds. We managed to get quite a few images in just a short time. Their little guy was performing perfectly with tonnes of smiles! Not long after we started, the rain came and it came fast with enormous drops!

Thank you Jay and Dale for letting me capture this amazing little family you’ve started. I can’t stop smiling at all of the images from that evening!

Central Alberta Wedding Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | A Calgary Nose Hill Park Engagement Shoot

One of my favorite things about my clients is how they select where they want their photos taken. Sometimes it’s a place of meaning, sometimes it’s the view or the style of the location. Nose Hill Park in Calgary was the beautiful backdrop for my latest engagement shoot. We had trails, ravines, gorgeous light, lovely greenery, and a little bit of wild life topped off with the perfect couple.

Leanne and Alex are tying the knot this weekend in beautiful Canmore!

After capturing them in Calgary, I anticipate driving west to record this special day for them. I can’t wait!
