Lethbridge four generation newborn photos

Zenaya was welcomed into the world by a line of strong women and her arrival celebrated with Lethbridge four generation newborn photos. Her mom, grandmother, and great grandmother all took part in her photo session and wrapped her in traditional blankets while she was happy to receive the snuggles! Zenaya did amazing at her session, drifting in and out of sleep and never making a fuss. Her mom was the only victim and received a poop explosion during bare bum time!

West Lethbridge Fall Family Portraits [Annelies and her parents]

West Lethbridge fall family portraits

Every couple years I get to hang out with Annelies and see how big she’s getting! This year for her West Lethbridge fall family portraits she showed me all her new dance moves she’s learning and had a great time joking around with me. The absolute funniest thing to her was when we pretended the ducks outside got poop on my camera. Anything to get a smile!

Her mom is a huge Kill Bill fan and lightly worked that theme into their photos. She started with the iconic shoes and went with a vibrant yellow motif around them, and we recreated a few photos of Beatrix with her daughter BB. What a fun idea!

Pavan Park Summer Family Photos [Lucas & Shayna]

Pavan Park summer family photos

We had a bit of trouble getting things going for Lucas and Shayna’s Pavan Park summer family photos with their parents. The first day we were ready to go in the parking lot when a thunder storm hit! A few weeks later we tried again and had a beautiful evening in the river bottom that wasn’t too hot. :)

I last saw Lucas when he was a couple years old. He’s pretty happy to have a little sister to play with now! He’s well on his way to teaching her important life skills like blowing raspberry sounds. They both had a great time chasing their big dog Bear around Pavan Park. He is so patient with them and loves exploring with his family. At our last session, he ended up going for a swim halfway through the photos. This time we managed to keep him dry ;)

Lethbridge Fall Family Photos in Indian Battle Park [Jennifer & Trevor]

Lethbridge fall family photos in Indian Battle Park

When we needed to hide from the wind, retreating into the Helen Schuler Nature Reserve for Jennifer and Trevor’s Lethbridge fall family photos was the perfect solution! The weather was kind enough to have a few leaves on the trees stick around. The leaves that did fall left a beautiful blanket of autumn colors over all of the sidewalks.

This family was a dream to work with. All four of their children were so well behaved and loved playing together (the end result being an epic leaf throwing battle). I’m sure they have normal sibling fights at home, but they kept it a secret from me ;)

Lethbridge Band Photos [Alyssa McQuaid and Coyote Junction]

Lethbridge band photos of Coyote Junction

You might recognize Alyssa from her solo performances, or from her wedding photos I did a few years ago. She’s been busy this year with her band Coyote Junction and I got together with them in Lethbridge to update their band photos to use in promotional materials. Since they are a country rock band, we went with a look that was rustic (but not dilapidated!) and there were so many great textures to fit this look where we wandered around. The neighbourhood we chose happened to be full of people who knew members of the band, so we had to take a few breaks to say hello! It was like they had an entourage following them ;)

You can hear music from Coyote Junction by checking out their Facebook page!

Barnwell Family Pet Photos [Tayler]

Barnwell family pet photos

Tayler had a new addition to add to her annual Barnwell family pet photos this year… their adorable Husky Winter! Winter joined their family a year ago and is a perfect companion to the other seasonal dogs, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Winter fits right in and loves playing with her fur siblings! I love coming out to Tayler’s house every year for her portrait session and hanging out with her, her mom, and all of their adorable critters. This year we had to work a little faster because it kept raining. This came as a surprise as it was one of the very few days it rained all summer! Luckily most of the animals didn’t mind being outside when it was damp. The cats were the exception, but it was a little easier to round each one up for a special portrait with Tayler when they were all hiding inside in the dryness ;)
