2017 Lethbridge MS Walk

2017 Lethbridge MS Walk

It was fantastic to return to volunteering for the 2017 Lethbridge MS Walk in support of funding for multiple sclerosis research, held by the Lethbridge MS Society. This year it was held at Henderson Lake instead of the river bottom, and what a fantastic day to hold it! They are normally worried about snow and instead were greeted with a beautiful, calm sunny day.

This year we were able to split up duties so I could focus on candid photos of the walk itself. One of the kind volunteers carted me around Henderson Lake in a golf cart all morning :)

Thank you to everyone who walked and helped raise money! There was another great turnout this year.

Coleman, Alberta Maternity Photos [Ashley & Scott]

April 27th, 2017

Coleman, Alberta early spring maternity photos

Ashley and Scott celebrated the upcoming arrival of their baby with Coleman, Alberta maternity photos just before the Easter weekend. Ashley was a stunning mother to be in her white lace dress, which showed off her tummy so perfectly. Her and Scott are so romantic together from the quiet way he holds her to the gentle way he kisses her hand. They’re going to be amazing parents.

We started out the session on the Miner’s Path in Coleman. Even though the leaves aren’t quite out yet for spring, the evergreen trees and abundance of moss gave us enough color. We just had to be careful to avoid the little patches of snow that were still hanging around! After that, we went over to “Scott’s mountain” (the one nearest his home town) and their dog Josie finally got to be included. Josie is a big softie despite her size (choosing to sit in my lap for a moment) and was so excited to smell all the interesting things in the field. She was so excited by the smells that it took a good 5 minutes before she cared about the silly noises I usually make for dogs!

Lethbridge Newborn Indoor Baby Photos [Conrad]

April 20th, 2017

Lethbridge newborn family photo session

Conrad was recently welcomed into the world by his parents and big brother Carson and got to spend one of his first afternoons doing Lethbridge newborn indoor baby photos at his brand new home. The last time I got to visit was just after Carson had arrived and his family had just moved into the house. Just a few years later it is so full of life and you can tell it has been filled with so much happiness. It’s amazing how much personality shows up already in the first month; I could already see such a contrast between Conrad and his brother. Conrad is the more mellow of the two, but I think Carson will keep up the excitement in the house to even things out ;)

Taber Newborn Baby Girl Photos [Olivia & Her Family]

Taber newborn baby girl photos

Remember smiley Lucas from last autumn? He’s back, and this time he has a baby sister! Olivia was welcomed into their family early in the new year and Lucas is already a doting big brother, carefully watching her and giving her endless forehead kisses. It was such a fun morning in Taber doing her newborn baby girl photos when he was so giggly. Their family is so joyful with their new addition. Olivia is quiet and watchful, and I think she’ll be as big a giggler as her brother.

Waterton Winter Elopement Photography [Terri & Craig]

April 4th, 2017

Terri & Craig, Waterton winter elopement

Terri and Craig got away from the city for the weekend for their Waterton winter elopement. It was a beautiful private event with just them, myself, and the marriage commissioner… very few guests were even in the park that day! It was so romantic to keep things so intimate. Their day will be so memorable not just for the intimacy, but for the weather. I think that was the craziest wind any of us have ever experienced! We managed to find enough shelter for photos and Terri’s shawl kept her mostly warm :) There was also the memorable fact of Terri having some wardrobe malfunctions with her dress, but luckily her shawl was there to save the day!

To get a break from the wind, they booked a room at the Waterton Lakes Lodge to have their wedding ceremony. They still got to have their mountain views through the window even if they couldn’t have an outdoor ceremony!

Congratulations, Terry and Craig!

Lethbridge Casual Couples Portraits [A & J]

March 28th, 2017

Lethbridge casual couples portraits

J’s mom wasn’t able to get all of her boys together for a photoshoot and instead gifted her photos to him and his gorgeous girlfriend A. J and A were so adorable together for their Lethbridge casual couples portraits. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so hilarious! A lot of their humour revolved around J making some ridiculous claim followed by A smacking him in the arm ;)

We did their session at Aperture Park at the U of L on such a warm, sunny early evening.
