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.

Lethbridge City Hall Autumn Family Photos [Lynn & Dennis]

Lethbridge City Hall autumn family photos

Lynn and Dennis got their children and grandsons together for their Lethbridge City Hall autumn family photos, and despite it being the end of October, it was a warm day, there were still leaves on the nearby trees, and there wasn’t a gust of wind! They have such a good looking family who are so close to each other. The cousins act like siblings and the in-laws know how to dish out the jabs just as much as everyone else does :)

I was really excited when they wanted to use an urban setting. The City Hall building is one of my favorite photo spots in Lethbridge with its great architecture and the way it reflects the sky and the weeping willows that line the street in front.

Lethbridge River Bottom Anniversary Portraits [Charleen & Chris]

Lethbridge River Bottom anniversary portraits

It was great to catch up with Charleen and Chris again for their Lethbridge river bottom anniversary portraits. I love so much that they keep up this tradition of updating their photos every few years for their anniversary, and keeping it close to their wedding date makes it so great for reflecting on how their relationship has grown. Even though they’ve been together a while, they are still giggly like newly weds and have no awkwardness about cuddling and being close to each other.

We spent a beautiful evening exploring behind the Helen Schuler Nature Centre for their anniversary session. The fall colours have been so amazing this year and I loved the colours Charleen and Chris chose to wear to go with it. It’s especially impressive when they put their wardrobes together at the last minute between having colds and being busy with work! ;)

Late Autumn Indian Battle Park Couples Photos [Orlena & Wayne]

Late Autumn Indian Battle Park Couples Photos

It was so great to finally get Orlena and Wayne in front of my camera! Between illnesses, family emergencies, and rain (just to name a few things!), it seemed like it might not happen but finally the stars aligned… and we managed to do it before the snow stayed for good! I was surprised how much colour we were able to find in the river bottom after all of the snow, rain, and wind that took place the week before. We had a perfect early evening for late autumn Indian Battle Park couples photos by the high level bridge and any chilliness was negated by how cuddly Wayne and Orlena were together. I loved how squishy their hugs were and how much Orlena grinned every time Wayne kissed her :)

Indian Battle Park Fall Family Photo Session [JJ & Shaun]

Indian Battle Park fall family photo session

JJ and Shaun probably expected their girls to calm down a bit as they got older, but I think Maddie and Taylor are the very definition of “firecrackers!” I always know it’s going to be a hilarious time with their laughter, crazy expressions, and super tight hugs. At the very least, photos are easier for their mom and dad year after year because even though the girls’ energy has no limits, they still listen when they are supposed to (especially with some grandparents helping out in the background!).

This year we chose to do an Indian Battle Park fall family photo session since we usually stick to the west side and the girls loved being in more of a nature setting with all the trees to climb on and deer to spot in the bushes.

Indian Battle Park Autumn Family Session [Lucas]

Indian Battle Park autumn family session

Lucas is getting so big! I last saw him for his newborn photos and now he’s running around and being adorable all over. His family visited Lethbridge to have an Indian Battle Park autumn family session and Lucas was READY. As soon as I greeted them, he flashed me an ear to ear grin and not once during photos did he lose that smile. Well, towards the end he got a little more serious but a few perfectly timed fart sounds definitely fixed that. It’s amazing to see how much joy he brings his mom and dad and I’m excited to see their family growing!
