Night To Shine 2018 in Lethbridge

Night to Shine 2018 in Lethbridge at the Victory Church

Night to Shine is a huge party held for special needs people so they can feel like celebrities! From the moment they enter on the red carpet, they are met by the paparazzi and cheering fans. Once inside, they are treated to complimentary hairdressers, makeup artists, shoe shines, delicious food, and endless dancing. The event is only held in select cities so it was wonderful to have it in Lethbridge for 2018!

Myself and several other photographers volunteered our services for the evening. Once the limo rides (graciously donated by California Dream Limo) started up, I was on limo duty and had so much fun cruising around the parking lot with everyone! Back inside, the dance floor was constantly packed right up until the last song. I loved seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces!

Outdoor Lethbridge Winter Family Photos [Kristen & The Boys]

outdoor Lethbridge winter family photos

Kristen was the lucky winner of a gift certificate in support of the YMCA and used the opportunity to get outdoor Lethbridge winter family photos with her boys for Christmas. In keeping with the Christmas theme, it was perfect that there was so much fresh snow and that it had finally warmed up enough that they didn’t have to be bundled up for our harsh Canadian weather.

Her boys were hilarious, having no problems making silly faces on command and racing each other through the snow. It’s also obvious how much they love their mom and loved taking breaks from playing together to snuggle with her.

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos [John & Beatrice]

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos

John and Beatrice were ecstatic to have their whole family together for Christmas! Once the holiday excitement died down a few days later, I met up with them for Lethbridge indoor three generation family photos at the University. We had hoped to do the photos outdoors, but with wind chills that week of -30C and colder, the University was a very appropriate backup!

The kids were a little iffy about having to hug their siblings, but the adults gladly grabbed onto each other for tight squeezes! They are definitely a closely knit family :)

Lethbridge Live Music Performance Photos [Rockuronium]

Lethbridge band photos of Rockuronium

Rockuronium had a special live music performance at a party for many of their friends and peers, and their guitar player treated them to some live band photography! I love how the band gives all the members a time to shine. Despite there being so many people on stage, they frequently took turns singing and rotating members to the front. The band is totally made up of doctors and health care workers and their name is a medical pun – I always appreciate a good pun! :) I loved being able to crash the party and watch them perform.

Be sure to check out Rockuronium on Facebook to see when they’re performing next!

Lethbridge in home newborn photo session

Branegan arrived right on schedule for his family just before Christmas! They celebrated his arrival with an in home newborn photo session while the other kids were out at school. Branegan was so laid back during photos and even though he didn’t really sleep through the session, he trusted us enough to rest his eyes, as long as we kept our promise not to change him. He was happiest every moment he got to snuggle with his mom and dad.

Crowsnest Pass Winter Maternity Photos [Jena & Daniel]

Crowsnest Pass winter maternity photos

A few months before their due date, I travelled down to Jena and Daniel’s mountain home for their Crowsnest Pass winter maternity photos. It’s so exciting to see them starting their family! Rufus, who has grown a lot bigger since their wedding, also got to be included in a bunch of photos. While he waited his turn, he got to excitedly zoom around in the snow outside.

Once we finished all the warm indoor photos, Jena got brave and headed outside in just a dress! She had a gorgeous flower crown to match the red, which looked so striking against the snow. Her and Daniel snuggled close to stay warm in the freezing temperatures and we loved the big fluffy snowflakes that fell around us.
