Lethbridge late autumn family photos

It’s been a delight watching Avery grow up this year as I’ve photographed her family at various milestones. I can’t believe she’s already sitting up on her own and having some cute little teeth pop out! This time we got to focus on her for Lethbridge late autumn family photos with her mom and dad at the university. The photos may have been intended for Christmas cards, but we sure didn’t have Christmas weather (and I am not complaining!). She took a little more coaxing than normal to smile, but once we got her going, she couldn’t stop bouncing and grinning.

Indian Battle Park Fall Morning Session [Amber, Ian, & the Kids]

Indian Battle Park fall morning session

I have been happily watching Amber and Ian’s family grow since I photographed their wedding my very first year I started my business. I feel like it wasn’t that long ago, but how big the kids are getting tells me otherwise! The kids have grown up so much since the last time I saw them and they’re now at the perfect age to follow all the directions I throw at them for photos. We met down in the river bottom for their Indian Battle Park fall morning session on a beautiful day and had a bit of time left over at the end for a playground party.

Indoor Family Christmas Photos [Elora, Thomas & Darby]

indoor family Christmas photos

It was great to see Elora, Darby and Thomas again for their indoor family Christmas photos at their home in Lethbridge. This will be the last family session with just the three of them as they are welcoming baby number two into the house in a couple months. Thomas joked that not only have I documented their family growing, I have also documented his hair growing! I insisted he better have a waist length beard the next time they do family photos ;)

Elora was adorable in her pretty red dress, which looked so great against their Christmas tree. She was so tolerant of all the silly ways we were propping her up but when she did get fussy, a little bit of singing from her dad and cuddles from mom cheered her right back up.

Young Boy Birthday Portraits in Lethbridge [Stefan]

young boy birthday portraits in Lethbridge

One of my favourite annual traditions is photographing Stefan each year around his birthday, and now that he’s getting more tolerant of the cold weather (though not that cold for December!) we got to do most of the photos outdoors at the University’s lake this time around. That being said, his mom and I were still pretty cold. ;) Stefan’s jumping, sliding, and running around definitely contributed to keeping him warm!

His personality has really opened up this year, going from being quiet and a little shy (though always rocking silly face photos) to telling me all kinds of stories and being totally up for jumping in the air as many times as I requested. His mom and dad joined him for a few photos this time too!

Lethbridge University Lake Couple’s Session [Davina & Jonathan]

Lethbridge University Lake couple's session

Davina and Jonathan chose an almost summer-like day for their Lethbridge University Lake couple’s session in the late autumn. We hardly even had wind! This was a great thing as Davina has recently moved to Lethbridge from out of province and is still adjusting to our “breezes” we regularly get here ;)

While Davina has relocated here for work, her boyfriend Jonathan is still back home and he came to Lethbridge for a special visit with her. I really appreciate them taking a moment out of such an important week for a few photos! They brought along their adorable dog Lyndee, who has the cutest ears with curly hair. Lyndee loved sniffing around at the university but was easy to distract when we gave her bag of biscuits a good shake!

Indian Battle Park Snowy Family Photos [Danny & Sacha]

Indian Battle Park snowy family photos

When Sacha hoped for snow for their session, we kept our fingers crossed extra hard – you just never know with the weather in Lethbridge – and we ended up so lucky (as I write this one day later, almost all of the snow has melted)! It was even a fairly warm day for November, unlike at my first photo session with them where it was barely -20C outside (this is one tough family). Danny and Sacha got the Indian Battle park snowy family photos they had hoped for and the kids were such great sports about it, as usual!

I can’t believe how big Midnight has grown since I last saw them, from not being able to hold his head up to his big brother Jayden having to wrangle him in as he runs away! We explored just outside of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and the boys had so much fun playing in the snow and jumping around to stay warm.
