Lethbridge Indoor Winter Family Photos [Shyanne & Darren]

February 26th, 2015

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portrait photography

Shyanne and Darren came to visit family in Lethbridge and took the opportunity to do their indoor winter family photos during their stay, thanks to an awesome gift from Shyanne’s mom. I met up with them and their two boys, Royce and Dominic, at the University of Lethbridge. This was a very special place as it’s where Shyanne and Darren first met!

Dominic was super giggly and cuddly while Royce was full of so much happy energy; in between photos, he had a great time bouncing around on his rubber ball! Their grandma sang all kinds of songs to get Dominic’s big grins, but soon he figured out there was a catch and was a little more watchful of us ;)

Gorgeous Lethbridge Boudoir Session [Carisa]

February 24th, 2015

gorgeous Lethbridge boudoir session

After properly meeting Carisa a few months ago, I was excited to finally get to do some photos with her! Carisa happens to be a very talented local burlesque artist so she was perfect for doing a gorgeous Lethbridge boudoir session with. I loved all of the soft pink details in her home decor and her lingerie choices, which created such a feminine color palette for her photos.

Carisa was a natural in front of the lens and was such a pleasure to work with!

Note: With the personal nature of boudoir photography, you do not need to worry about your images being shared online if you want to keep them private. Carisa gave special permission for her photos to be shared :)

Product Feature: Luxury Album for Weddings

February 19th, 2015

Lethbridge wedding album product photo, Luxury Album

One of the most popular albums I offer with weddings is the Luxury Album, a coffee table style high end album with a faux leather cover, beautiful silky finish on pages, and impressive display case. Kayla and Jeff’s Crowsnest Pass summer wedding featured a soft color scheme of white, pink, and light gray so I went with a bright design for this album, using a prominent palette of white with subtle accents of pink and gray. The landscapes in the mountains made for amazing full page spreads!

This sample album was a variation of the actual album Kayla got with her wedding. I was so in love with the design that I needed a copy to share with other people!

Fun Calgary Engagement Photos [Jori & Shawn]

February 17th, 2015

fun Calgary engagement photos

It was so great to finally meet Jori and Shawn! We’ve been doing all of their wedding planning long distance from two different cities but I was able to make the trip up for their really fun Calgary engagement photos, which happened to fall on our record breaking warm “Junuary” weekend.

At first the two of them seem a little shy, but give them a few moments together and they are openly silly and adorable together! I lost count of the number of times Shawn made Jori burst out in laughter during the photos. This session had so many fun surprises: cats, dinosaurs, and acrobatics! We started out the session in their house then wandered over to Jori’s favorite playground where she got to show off her impressive skills, which you will see below :)

I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

New Product! USB Presentation Box

Lethbridge portrait photography images on USB with wooden box

I’m excited this year to be offering a new way to receive your digital files… custom wooden USB boxes! Now that so many computers are being produced without CD-roms, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for wedding couples and anyone purchasing their digital images from their sessions to access their photos afterwards.

This new box has an image etched in the lid and the USB drive itself is wood with custom engraving. It’s such a great keepsake for your images when you prefer digital!

Indian Battle Fall Family Photos [Mary & John]

February 10th, 2015

Indian Battle fall family photos

Mary and John came to Lethbridge over Thanksgiving weekend to visit their kids, Kendra and Cameron, and took some time out of their schedule to get some updated Indian Battle fall family photos. The leaves were such an amazing color that weekend with rare splashes of orange everywhere. They brought along their senior dog O.D. who was so full of personality despite his hearing and vision problems. He must have known how to smile at the camera even when he couldn’t hear me!

This family was hilarious and joked their way through the whole session. It’s good they are such positive people because we had a bit of trouble with the rain… every so often, despite it being a beautiful day, we’d be hit with pouring rain and even a little hail! We had to run for cover a couple times during our session (including a 10 minute car break when it got really bad!) but luckily it passed every time and we could keep going.

Thanks for braving the rain with me, guys! ;)
