  • 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!

Alberta Wedding Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Rustic Country Stylized Shoot

Although wedding photographers shoot lots of weddings in a wedding season and have the opportunity to second shoot for tonnes of other amazing photographers, it’s still one of my favorite things to do ~ to create and photograph a stylized shoot. It allows me create a look and style that I love to capture. It helps to attract the clients that I want to capture. It helps my clients and potential clients see what I love to photograph. It also gives me the opportunity to work with amazing local vendors.

I absolutely loved the flowers and the arrangements created by a local shop in Olds called The Lady Bug Studio. I can’t wait to work more with this store. They love being creative using the vintage and rustic style that I am totally drawn to. It amazes me when I can give a few ideas to a vendor and have them create a product that makes me smile and get anxious to get shooting! LOVE LOVE LOVE…

Thank you to my friend and my hair and make-up artist, Kelly Pollitt. She is so fun to hang out with, a talented HMUA and a talented photographer.

And lastly, thanks to my amazing models…I love capturing you two! Desirae and Jaydon…thank you so much for spending this evening with me!

This was one of those shoots that I had to rearrange a few times because of rainy weather…this evening was also pretty dark with clouds but we decided to go for it! I love the purple skies that evenings like this provide…we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area.

I am so lucky to be able to capture it.

Central Alberta Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Paisley Ann Photography Raw and Creative Workshop

I was thrilled to be picked up at the airport in Minnesota by the super talented photographer of Paisley Ann Photography, Kayleigh Alberts! I had been anticipating learning from this lady filled with inspiration, ideas, and so much skill. I decided to attend her Raw and Creative Workshop in June. This workshop shares how to capture raw emotion and how to be creative in a natural setting.

A few of the best things I took away were:
1. You can find beauty anywhere…look for the light, shoot in places you would never think to look.
2. Plan ahead…Kayleigh is amazing at working with her clients prior to her shoots and the details…ahhh…I love her for her details! So inspiring!
3. Experiences are only given to those who go for it…I was so glad to go for it and take this workshop, to meet Kayleigh. Not only did I learn a tonne, I had a blast! Just like her images, she spends time perfecting the details and experiences for her workshop attendees. We were treated at the most gorgeous tea house for a delectable high tea experience. If you’re ever in Anoka, check it out, The Mad Hatter.

She is holding another workshop in Anoka, Minnesota October 25th and 26th also called the Raw and Creative Workshop which I know will be nothing short of amazing! I highly recommend attending any workshops taught by this fun and extremely skilled artist…you won’t regret it!

Central Alberta Family Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Sunday Morning Sunlight

With such a busy schedule and the odd rainy evening, I have had to reschedule and work on what I have labelled my ‘family’ day. This beautiful morning was spent with the most fun family.
With two kids much like my own I felt like it was my family!…a little guy interested in everything around him ~ except the camera, and a little princess perfectly posed for the camera.

The thing I love most about families is capturing who they really are…facial expressions in only a few frames can really share the personality of one little person to the world.
Thank you to the Miller family for sharing this gorgeous sunshiny morning with me!

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…
