Even in the rain Lake Louise is unreal! For our last night in Banff we are staying at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and it is right on the lake. It is just as pretty as all the photos I saw, if you ever get a chance to come here you definitely should. But don’t make the rookie mistake like we did and wait til the last day to do the classic canoe ride! We had bad weather our last day so they weren’t doing any canoe rides. Probably a blessing in disguise for me because while I was really wanting to go, it kept making me uncomfortable thinking of being on there with Atticus! Falling in the water with a life vest in Bora Bora or somewhere where its shallow (and warm!) is one thing but to tip over when the water is ice cold and I have no idea how deep it is, is really scary to me. So I am kinda glad we didn’t, that wiggly worm of mine is unpredictable!

There are also a ton of really cool hikes that overlook Lake Louise but they are pretty long and I started to get sick our last day and also being pregnant I just didn’t feel up to it 🙁 (wimp!!)

We are headed home tomorrow morning and I am excited to see our pup and sleep in our bed! xo

  1. These photos (and the rainy day photos from the same trip) are my all-time favorites from your blog. I have pinned them incessantly and always come back to them as I venture into my own photography. I think I’ve figured out what camera/lens you used for these shots, but I would love a post or video on your photo editing tips. Do you use lightroom or photoshop? These photos have such a stunning, mysical quality I’d love to try to replicate! Would love some more photo tips from David – I’ve watched his tutorials many times and find them so useful!

  2. Hey Amber, I am thinking about a similar trip. I will be pregnant 22 weeks then. Did you have any issues with the altitude or long driving? It looks too good to be true so I don’t want to miss out on the trip only because of the pregnancy. Thanks*

  3. oh sorry I didn’t mean to comment it twice it said it couldn’t post the comment so then I added my last initial and it let me but apparently it already posted it as just Kelsey sorry about that

  4. I love your being and floral long sleeve, do you know if they make it in non-maternity??? if so where is it from because it is so cute!!!! (btw sorry I’m kinda stocking your blog so if you see like a million comments from me I swear I’m not a weirdo I just LOVE your style!!!)

  9. Love your blog Amber and these pictures are amazing. I’ve been wanting to take my family to Lake Louise but find it hard to get to. Were you able to get a direct flight to Calgary and then rent a car and drive? We are in Washington DC area and even with 3 large international airports close by it is difficult. Good luck with your pregnancy.

    1. Thanks so much Kathryn!! And you should definitely go, you would love it!! Yes, we flew to Calgary and then we got a rental car. I hope that helps! And thank you love!! Everything is going great 🙂 xo

  10. Amber! Your pictures are always so stunning! I would love to know all your tips on how you get such awesome pictures. What camera and lens do you use? What do you use to edit your pictures? I am a wannabe photographer who wishes my vacation pictures turned out as awesome as yours. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Deanna!! We use a canon 5d mark iii and we typically use a 24-70 lens but we used a wide angle lens for these pictures. We use a photo editing program called Lightroom. I hope that helps!! xo

  17. Oh my gosh Amber! Atticus is so freaking adorable, I just can’t even! Your photos are gorgeous… I read somewhere you use Lightroom? I’d seriously love a post on how you photograph and how you edit! I’m just starting to use Lightroom (Photoshop is too confusing for me!).

  23. I’ve always wanted to visit Banff and Lake Louise! The colour of the water is absolutely amazing! Canoeing sounds absolutely amazing too, but I’d be pretty freaked out by it just by myself nevermind with a little one haha! It looks like you guys had such a great time!

  24. The colour of the lake looks so unreal, it’s so blue! The pictures were also so beautiful taken!

  26. You are a champ for exploring as much as you did while you are pregnant! It all looks like a dream…the clothes, the scenery and your beautiful family. Just beautiful 🙂

    1. Thank you Dawn!! We absolutely LOVED visiting 🙂 You are lucky to live in such a gorgeous place!

  28. How do you feel good enough during your pregnancies to travel so much?

    1. I feel good but I definitely get tired much easier 🙂 I don’t get very sick during my pregnancies so far, so luckily, it makes it easier for me to be out and about.

  29. Gorgeous photos! Do you have any advice for editing photos in Photoshop (or whatever program you recommend)?

  30. Banff looks absolutely incredible! I was in Canada just this past Summer and fell in love. All of the pictures of Atticus are just so cute too! I hope you all had a lovely trip! ☺️ Banff may be on my list of places to go now too. ????

  31. Lake Louise looks so calm and serene. And the view is absolutely breathtaking! I have enjoyed reading your posts and looking at all of your photos from Banff. I feel like I just took a breath of fresh air by looking at them haha. I love your sweater, btw. I’ve been eyeing that Joie sweater for like a year now, maybe it’s time to get it.

    1. Thanks so much!! I am so happy you enjoyed the posts 🙂 And oh yes!! You need it! I love it so much!! xo
