Park Lake Multi-Generation Family Photos [Peggy & Lourens]

Park Lake multi-generation family photos

To celebrate Lourens’ 50th birthday, his children all got together for Park Lake multi-generation family photos. The family coordinated so well for their blue color scheme and even the little kids matched! This was a wonderful idea for his wife Peggy to put together :)

Even as their children grow and move on to start families of their own, the closeness between them remains strong. The siblings interact no differently in their joking and teasing each other than if they were still kids living under the same roof!

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.

Hillcrest Mines Family Photos [Fleurie]

Hillcrest Mines family photos

When I first visited Fleurie for her newborn photos, our plan had been to focus on her in her home then go outside to get scenic photos with her mom and dad. That didn’t work out when it poured that whole weekend! We figured we’d have better luck waiting a little later into the summer, but sure enough it happened to rain again. The weather did not seem to like us! However, everything worked out perfectly by waiting till the next morning for their Hillcrest Mines family photos. We had beautiful weather, were sheltered from the wind down in the trees, and the grass seemed to grow inches taller after all that extra water.

Fleurie was not as excited about the weather as we were. She took a little offence to being awoken from her nap, but luckily we knew how to calm her down from last time. With the right amount of bouncing and a soother on hand, the problem was solved!

Crowsnest Pass Baby Girl Session [Fleurie]

Crowsnest Pass baby girl session

It was wonderful to meet Fleurie for her Crowsnest Pass baby girl session! We didn’t get to spend part of the session outdoors in the mountains as we hoped for thanks to the rain, but I got to hang out with her and her parents at home under the supervision of their dog Gus. (Gus doesn’t show up in these photos but he’ll be in their eventual outdoor family photos.) Fleurie was a little uncertain about what was going on and needed frequent bouncing breaks, but we managed to say just the right things to her in between crying for her to switch to her curious face. Her mom and dad learned a few new things about her that day, like that she LOVES soothers and that she is much happier if she gets to lay angled upside down.

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.

University of Lethbridge Convocation Photos [Bert]

University of Lethbridge convocation photos

I met up with Bert, his wife Geraldine, and their five beautiful children for his University of Lethbridge convocation photos immediately after his graduation ceremony finished. Bert’s family was buzzing with excitement over his accomplishment, and his sisters were so excited they couldn’t stop hugging him! To celebrate his achievement, we wandered around the U of L campus that afternoon for family portraits. It was such a beautiful day, though that’s not the kind of day you want to be wearing a heavy black robe ;)
