Dia de los Muertos [Tuezday Sugar Skull Photos]

sugar skull, Dia de los Muertos photos in Lethbridge

As a personal project before Halloween, I recruited model Tuezday Kabel & makeup artist Jill Renner for a Día de los Muertos themed photoshoot with sugar skull face painting. These ladies rocked it! We coordinated the skull paint with the autumn colors outside and found the most colorful splashes we could in Indian Battle Park.

Lethbridge Outdoor Fall Portraiture [Mackenzie]

Lethbridge outdoor fall portraiture

Mackenzie rocked these photos! We had such amazing saturated colors during the first round of autumn leaf changes here in Lethbridge and I was so eager to capture them in some outdoor fall portraiture. Mackenzie was a perfect model, especially since her favorite dress color complemented the foliage so perfectly. It was awesome to catch up with her since she just moved back to Lethbridge and she was such a dream to work with!

Terrifying Tami, the Scary Clown [Personal Project]

Terrifying Tami, scary clown photos

It’s my favorite time of year, Halloween season! Not much is scarier than a creepy clown (at least in my opinion), so I felt some scary clown photos were in order this year!

When I saw Tami do a cartwheel at a previous modeling collaboration, I knew we had to do something creepy and weird, and the clown thing just fell into place. With Katt Panic’s magic touch, Tami transformed into a clown much scarier than I could have imagined. (I loved Tami’s reaction when we finally showed her the finished face!) I love that Tami has such colorful hair as it was the perfect touch to complete the look.

Corlin is a young, up and coming musician in Lethbridge and needed some portraits to use with his recordings. We set out downtown to get some creative head shots and brought along a keyboard as a prop. Corlin totally nailed these photos! :)

Galt Gardens Grad Photos [Jarred]

Galt Gardens Grad Photos

I can’t believe how much he’s grown up! I first met Jarred for his family photos around 6 years ago, and now that he’s graduating high school, he’s gotten a little older! Jarred has become quite the model and was so photogenic I barely had to do any directing for his photos. His mom made sure to keep some distance from the photo shoot so she wouldn’t cry too much ;)

We started out our session in Galt Gardens on a beautiful, warm evening, then headed over to Casa for some indoor grad photos. The blues in Jarred’s suit (and socks) looked so great with all of our locations.

Park Lake Mermaid Portraits [Miss Marin]

park lake mermaid portraits

As a treat for Marin’s 10th birthday, she got to transform into a beautiful mermaid! Park Lake was a perfect backdrop for her mermaid portraits that evening with its gorgeous views of the water. The docks and rocks against the lake were perfect for a mermaid to come out onto land and Marin was all for climbing on everything! She had some pretty great skills in hopping around with a fin on, while her dad helped her with the more difficult terrain :)

Her mermaid tail was so fun to play around with and I’m sure she’ll get lots of use out of it this summer. It definitely deserves a few more swims!
