Lethbridge Four Generation Newborn Photos [Zenaya]

December 7th, 2017

Lethbridge four generation newborn photos

Zenaya was welcomed into the world by a line of strong women and her arrival celebrated with Lethbridge four generation newborn photos. Her mom, grandmother, and great grandmother all took part in her photo session and wrapped her in traditional blankets while she was happy to receive the snuggles! Zenaya did amazing at her session, drifting in and out of sleep and never making a fuss. Her mom was the only victim and received a poop explosion during bare bum time!

Lethbridge Santa pet photos

This year Santa and I teamed up with Pet Valu West Lethbridge for special Christmas photos with all kinds of pets!

Thanks to everyone’s generous contributions, we raised nearly $400 for A Better Chance Animal Rescue!

David the Scavenger in the Post-Apocalyptic Burnt Countryside

December 3rd, 2017

post apocalyptic world creative portraits

While the tragedy of the local wildfires continued into the autumn, I wanted to turn the ashes into something beautiful and planned out more ideas in my post-apocalypse inspired series. David was kind enough to be on call for nearly two months while we waited for the unexpected early snow to dry up, and we found a perfect single day window of opportunity. We made use of the aftermath of one of the Lethbridge grass fires (this one had been started by an out of control camp fire during the summer).

David put together an amazing outfit and totally fit the part. He even came prepared with weapon and tool props! It’s not often you have a conversation like this…
Subject: I brought an axe.
Photographer: Oh good, I can save the hammer and meat tenderizer for another model.

I’m loving this series and I hope to keep it going! (You can check out the first post-apocalypse photoshoot with Jenn here!)

West Lethbridge Fall Family Portraits [Annelies and her parents]

November 30th, 2017

West Lethbridge fall family portraits

Every couple years I get to hang out with Annelies and see how big she’s getting! This year for her West Lethbridge fall family portraits she showed me all her new dance moves she’s learning and had a great time joking around with me. The absolute funniest thing to her was when we pretended the ducks outside got poop on my camera. Anything to get a smile!

Her mom is a huge Kill Bill fan and lightly worked that theme into their photos. She started with the iconic shoes and went with a vibrant yellow motif around them, and we recreated a few photos of Beatrix with her daughter BB. What a fun idea!

Pavan Park Summer Family Photos [Lucas & Shayna]

November 23rd, 2017

Pavan Park summer family photos

We had a bit of trouble getting things going for Lucas and Shayna’s Pavan Park summer family photos with their parents. The first day we were ready to go in the parking lot when a thunder storm hit! A few weeks later we tried again and had a beautiful evening in the river bottom that wasn’t too hot. :)

I last saw Lucas when he was a couple years old. He’s pretty happy to have a little sister to play with now! He’s well on his way to teaching her important life skills like blowing raspberry sounds. They both had a great time chasing their big dog Bear around Pavan Park. He is so patient with them and loves exploring with his family. At our last session, he ended up going for a swim halfway through the photos. This time we managed to keep him dry ;)

Frosty Lethbridge Landscape Photography [The West Side]

November 21st, 2017

frosty Lethbridge landscape photography

I always joke that I only take photos with people (or animals!) in them, but I’m always jealous of all the amazing photos landscape photographers take by getting up before sunrise. I did not get up before sunrise, but I did get up early enough on one of our recent foggy days to actually catch the hoarfrost and fog! I set off bundled up to take some frosty Lethbridge landscape photography.

Quickly I learned that it was only foggy for several blocks around my house and everywhere else was bathed in winter sunlight. Luckily the frost still clung to the trees so I wasn’t left cursing being out in the cold for nothing!
