_CR27442When we have the chance to get away from our busy life, we make sure that we are doing something active together. If we are not shooting clients, we are out in the mountains enjoying the view.

Taking some time off from work to do something different, rejuvenates your senses. And it is very important for us, creative people.

So here are some snaps we took on our three day trip to Banff & Lake Louise, AB a week ago. Also we did our first snowshoeing this season. We will sure be doing some more!

Happy Holidays and be safe wherever you will be this holiday season ~ Love, Chiqui & Ian

Rowley, AB – a Ghost Town

We recently visited a small ghost town located just 2 hours north of Calgary, the location was perfect for our engagement session that we were planning to do. Here’s a little bit of history review for all of you who are not familiar with this town.

It was established at the late 1920’s when it used to boast 700 people way back 1910 but after the Great Depression took a toll on the locals the town was abandoned and left Rowley with rows of empty houses and businesses were closed.

Sorry, I lied. Except for every last Saturday of every month, Sam’s Saloon opens for some pizza and drinks. It’s a must to visit and experience this ghost town, comes alive once in every month.

Now the buildings left standing are banks, schools, train station, saloon, funeral homes, community centre, grain elevators (still working!) are furnished with vintage and old collections of various types from the locals. At the present time, Rowley is a tourist attraction from people coming from US and Canada.
