St. Albert, Alberta Family Fall Photography Locations
1. Sturgeon River Valley downtown St. Albert
I am blogging on different spots to take your family fall photos within the St. Albert and Edmonton area! Today I am going to show you the versatility of the St. Albert Sturgeon River valley. These photos are only taken on the North side of the river across from St. Albert Place and close to the Children’s walking bridge. The location has so much variety to off you and your family, it will definitely not disappoint! There are lots of trees, railroad tracks, old wooden trestle bridge for trains to cross, walking paths, obviously the river with tall grasses, large trunk trees you can sit on or stand beside, benches, open grass fields, and the walking bridge that is red and blue in color! This place is so much fun, probably one of my favorites for the variety it has to offer for family photography sessions.
2. Grandin Pond, St. Albert, Alberta
This location is a little gem within St. Albert for family photo sessions. It has a large open grassy area with a few benches, paths, lots of tall trees that turn yellow in the fall and a mini bridge among the trees. You can go deep into the woods or stay out on the paths. I even use the picnic tables with the pretty yellow leaves in the background for taking photos of families or small children. The best time to take your photos is about 1 hr before sunset as it offers the best natural light! Other places this location has to offer is a bunch of old wooden trellis with benches that offer lots of variety and good lighting on at least one of the 4 corners depending on where the sun is. There is also a pond that you can use in your backgrounds which is absolutely stunning! I just love to photograph families and children in this location! Grandin Pond St. Albert has so much variety to offer for your photos!
