Through the teenage lens

Photos by Kayla Schellenberg

Fall 2022


Editor’s Note: Aspiring photographer Kayla Schellenberg, 15, spent five weeks this summer capturing images on her camera for airdrielife. We selected a few to share here and you can see more online at

“I really liked this assignment due to the energy Airdrie has during summer. You can really feel the excitement in the community and I’m glad I could showcase that in my photos. I really wanted to put the spotlight on things that mostly go unnoticed in our city. There are small details that pull the community together that no one really notices. Whether that be the wildlife we have, the peacefulness, or the talented people throughout the community.”

Kayla uses a Canon EOS Rebel T7.

Thanks, Kayla, for approaching us and sharing your passion.


If you are an aspiring photographer under 18, we’d love to see your work. Maybe it will end up on a future page in the magazine!
