Snowy Winter Lethbridge Engagement Photography [Aamee & Jason]

Snowy winter Lethbridge engagement photography

Aamee and Jason ended up choosing quite the chilly day for their snowy winter engagement photo session here in Lethbridge; we were expecting warm weather and instead got a blizzard! It definitely worked out in our favor because even though it was too cold to stay outside for very long, the snow made their outdoor photos look so dreamy and bright. I’m sure their cute pooches King Kong and Batman were also happy that they got lots of hugs and got to be packed around instead of stuck in the cold snow!

We started out the session in the much warmer indoors of the University of Lethbridge and had such great bright light coming in from the snow outside. Aamee and Jason are so cute and sweet together, so of course my favorite photos of them were when they got right in close and cuddly. Aamee also brought along a few really fun props we were able to use in their engagement photos!

I’m sure we will have much warmer weather for their Norland Bed & Breakfast wedding this June!

Lethbridge Winter Adult Family Photos

Just in time before the blizzard! Keltie, Heath, and Jasmyn got together with me for their Christmas family photos this past winter and brought along their fur babies Louie and Sophie. The family was so wonderfully coordinated and looked gorgeous :) They picked such a great color scheme of red, gray, and black to pop out against the subdued winter landscape, and the University of Lethbridge lake was a perfect spot.

Even though the dogs were over-excited by visiting a new place, I was happy to find they thought all of my sound effects were very interesting and were easy to get looking at me! They had a few frightful moments (I AM pretty big next to a Chihuahua!) but were pretty easy to calm down with cuddles. (more…)

Pavan Park Autumn Couples Session [Lisa & Trent (with Coco!)]

Pavan Park Autumn Couples Session

Lisa and Trent decided to have a late autumn couples session done with their fur baby Coco in Pavan Park and I had such a great time with them. They are such genuinely nice people and were a joy to be around. I love seeing couples who are so perfect for each other like the two of them are.

Coco has soooo much energy and luckily they brought her favorite ball to keep her distracted throughout photos… all we needed to do to get Lisa and Trent on their own was throw the ball! Sometimes the best way to get Coco involved in a photo was to just let her photo bomb the pose, and she was pretty good at knowing exactly where to stand. By the end, her pace was noticeably slower and her tongue hung out a mile :)

Crowsnest Pass Mountain Maternity Session [Erika & Josh]

Crowsnest Pass winter maternity session

It is always so amazing watching the people I grew up with move through such huge milestones in their lives. Erika and Josh’s wedding was a big one for me, and now they have had their first baby! I am so happy and excited for them and it was obvious they are feeling those same things; they were radiating so much positivity at their Crowsnest Pass mountain maternity session. Even as we walked between locations, they couldn’t help but discuss big plans for their little girl (like how she totally needs a tree house to play with her dolls)!

I’m so excited to get to meet little Molly very soon!

Young woman with brown horse in Lethbridge

Just a few days after her sister’s wedding, I got to photograph Carissa again but this time with her beautiful horse Ruby Tuesday. We already had to reschedule once because of the crazy wind, so we were very lucky on our second try with beautiful weather! Ruby was energetic and all about doing her own thing, then ironically calmed down when we took her in the stables with all the really excited horses; she must have been trying to set a good example for them :) (more…)

photo of adoptable pet dog in Lethbridge

We had to deal with a LOT of snow for Phoebe’s adoption photos (and I think we even lost her a few times in it!) but it was worth it, even with the wind, for how cute she is! She’s still learning to trust people but she’s still tiny and has lots of time to do that. I love how fluffy her ears are :) (more…)
