Helen Schuler Nature Reserve Family Photos [Callie]

Helen Schuler Nature Reserve family photos

Callie and her mom and dad met with me for their Helen Schuler Nature Reserve family photos this autumn. What a happy kid Callie is! Her mom warned me in advance that Callie was your typical two year old… ready to do her own thing and go on the war path if we suggested otherwise. Instead, she spent the whole session happily following all the instructions, watching for bunnies, and throwing leaves in the air!

We started at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre then made our way into the reserve to find all the amazing colours. Callie loved spending this special time with her parents and had so much fun!

Twin Sibling Western Photo Session [Bradley & Allison]

twin sibling western photo session

Bradley and Allison got to have their twin sibling western photo session at their grandma’s house just outside of Lethbridge. Grandma’s house had such pretty spots but more importantly, it’s where their mom and dad keep their horses boarded and we got to bring them out for photos too!

This session was made possible by a donation through the Lethbridge Twins & Triplets Club and I was excited waiting to see which twins (or triplets!) would come my way! Twins Bradley and Allison have such distinct personalities already, which was most notable when Allison told us how done she was and Bradley watched her with curiosity, wondering what ever could have made his sister so upset :) The twins looked so cute in their miniature western wear, especially Allison’s little pink cowboy boots.

Waterton Extended Family Photos [Janet & the Kids]

Waterton extended family photos

Janet planned a wonderful trip with her children and their families over the long weekend. The whole family spent their weekend visiting Waterton and while there decided to have extended family photos done.

We started out our session at the Prince of Wales Hotel cliffs where “windy” doesn’t begin to describe the gusts that day! (I think that was our trade-off for narrowly escaping the forecast of rain.) We made our time there short so the children wouldn’t hate us too much… just enough time to get a few photos with the amazing view :)

The rest of the portrait session was spent at the gorgeous Cameron Falls, where we managed to sneak in right at dinner time when all the tourists were disappearing. The kids LOVED chasing the many chipmunks there so even when they got tired of photos, they had some good stress relief. It was amazing to see the love between Janet and her family. They are so special to her and she was so elated having everyone together.

Mom and the Girls Photoshoot [Amanda, Mia, and Nova]

mom and the girls photoshoot in Lethbridge

For Amanda’s birthday, she treated herself to a mom and the girls photoshoot with her daughters Mia and Nova. These three blonde girls are so gorgeous!

It was so fun to photograph Mia again since I haven’t seen her since her newborn photos and now she’s a feisty two year old! Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge was such a fun location for Nova who loved looking at the deer and picking dandelions. We all had to team up to chase her around (including Mia’s friends she brought along), but Nova definitely insisted on doing her own thing. Luckily we were able to trick her into a bunch of photos by playing off what she thought she was choosing to do on her own ;)

Spring Morning Family Photos [Carly & Andy]

Lethbridge spring morning family photos

I’ve worked with Carly many times for photography, but that was all for her job… this time her and her family got to be in front of my camera! She celebrated Mother’s Day with spring morning family photos with her boys at Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge. However, her littlest guy didn’t get the memo that it was Mother’s Day and wasn’t fully cooperative after a while! Our photos slowly evolved more and more into playing with sticks and swinging him in the air to get him excited again ;)

Indian Battle Park Morning Children’s Portraits [Audrey]

Indian Battle Park morning children's portraits

Each time I take photos of Audrey, I hardly recognize her from the last time! She has grown so much in the last two years and this time around has added a puppy friend to her life. This was actually my second time working with Minnie because she helped us out at Halloween with our Windy City Canine Rescue, and just a short time after that, Audrey’s family adopted her.

Audrey was such a sweetheart for her Indian Battle Park morning children’s portraits and had such a fun time playing with and feeding snacks to Minnie.
