HOME SWEET HOME SESSIONS
Alpina Photography has launched a new photography offering for those who just bought their new home or completed a big renovation and want to celebrate it with a fun photo session in front of the new home. We are also offering this in the form of a gift certificate for your friends, family or real estate clients! For more information, go to home sweet home page
In celebration of the gradual reopening of Alberta after a 2-month lock-down, Alpina Photography ran a giveaway contest on May 4-6 on Instagram and Facebook. Two lucky Calgarians each won a 1hr photography session and 15 high resolution digital images with professional retouching. $500 value each.
Congratulations Courtney and Matthew!
Courtney’s choice is an outdoor family session.
Matthew is a personal trainer and he would like a professional portrait to reflect his business.
We are in this together! We are all happy with the first steps taken towards getting our economy back on track, but we will continue practicing social distancing and protect our families until we make this virus a history.

Today I had a cake smash session with little Owen who just turned 1! Like most 1 year olds, he didn’t taste much of sweets until his birthday. He was quite skeptical about the cake when we first introduced it to him. Later when he put some in his mouth, he kind of...read more
