Melanie L's Birthday + Friends Session | Edmonton Portrait Photographer

When Mel (my friend who works with my husband at Transcend Coffee) first asked me if I wanted to take photos of her and her closest friends to celebrate her 26th birthday I immediately said “Absolutely!” We started to talk about what she wanted and I knew that an urban setting and fun shots would be exactly what I needed to capture. I told her what I had in mind and we got pretty excited about it. An hour before the shoot on Sunday afternoon downtown was hit with pouring rain and hail and we even heard our first cracks of thunder. Hmm…I told her I was sure it would clear up by 4 and sure enough the sun came out and we had a great time walking around downtown shooting. I even did an HD movie clip of her kidnapping. I’ll explain below. :)

Since the entire group of friends all grew up together and have been great friends since they were teenagers it was a hoot to hang out with them. Thanks for spending time with me. I had a lot of fun! Enjoy these images from the session.

Here is one image from Mel’s “kidnapping”. I filmed her getting “drugged” and then dragged over to the van where the kidnappers (her friends) were going to load her in. It was pretty hilarious!! It is probably one of those things where you had to be there for it to be funny…

Here are some silly shots…

Fun in the park!

There was a wide open U Haul truck we found in a parking lot…awesome!! Mel decided to go for a drive. No not really…
