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]

November 9th, 2017

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]

November 2nd, 2017

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 ;)

Coaldale Family Farm Photos [George & Sharon and the kids]

Coaldale family farm photos

Due to some travel delays amongst their children, George and Sharon hadn’t been able to get a proper family photo at their daughter’s wedding last autumn. They made up for it this summer with Coaldale family farm photos at their beautiful home. Most of the kids don’t like having their photo taken, but I think they did a pretty good job getting through it to make their mom happy :)

Pincher Creek Cabin Family Photos [Barry & Linda]

October 19th, 2017

Pincher Creek cabin family photos

It’s been a few years since both of their children’s weddings so it was great to get together with Barry and Linda’s family again! They were spending the weekend at their cabin in Southern Alberta and figured it was time for some updated family photos while everyone was together. Barry built the cabin near Pincher Creek himself and it’s been a treasured family getaway spot over the years. As the family has grown with marriage, they’ve only added more laughter and love to their weekends away. Although the mountain views from the property were obstructed with smoke, the view from on top of their hill was still incredible!

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2017

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2017 in Galt Gardens

The last few zombie walks have taken place on Saturdays during wedding season so I’ve missed way too many of them. This year it took place on my first Saturday off! The compromise is that it was late in the fall and it was COLD. Despite the wind, the turn out was pretty great and we all had fun “attacking” the victims who came to watch :)

A huge thanks to Katt Panic for organizing the event this year!
