Children’s Lethbridge Indoor Photo Session [April’s Family]

December 28th, 2017

children's Lethbridge indoor photo session

April contacted me with a fun top secret photo project: her children and nieces were going to surprise their grandma for Christmas with a collage of the four kids! The cousins got all fancied up and snuck away for their indoor photo session at the University of Lethbridge while they were visiting for Thanksgiving. They were so cute and each of them was so well behaved when it was their turn.

It was pretty cold that weekend so we mostly stuck inside (and enjoyed the fun elevator ride in between photos!) but the children were brave and whipped off their coats for a few quick photos in the autumn leaves.

Indoor Lethbridge Christmas Family Photos [Mieke & Bob]

indoor Lethbridge Christmas family photos

I have been photographing Bob and Mieke’s family for nearly a decade now but haven’t seen them in a while as some of their children have moved away. This year they had everyone return come home for an early holiday celebration and called me over to the house to capture the event through indoor Lethbridge Christmas family photos. Some of the kids were much bigger since the last time I photographed the family, plus there were a bunch of new little faces! The cousins love spending time together while Mieke and Bob beam with pride over their grandchildren. Thank you for bringing me into your home and letting me capture your family’s memories after all these years!

Lethbridge Comic Book Shop Family Photos [Oliver]

Lethbridge comic book shop family photos

Oliver made his mom and dad come in to work a little early for their Lethbridge comic book shop family photos. They are the awesome owners of local game store Kapow and their shop made a cute backdrop for the session. Seeing as how he had a superhero theme to his baby photos, it was only fitting to do that again to celebrate his second birthday!

Oliver has turned into an energetic and bubbly toddler! He loved posing and taking breaks to organize the products his parents carry in the store :)

Lethbridge four generation newborn photos

Zenaya was welcomed into the world by a line of strong women and her arrival celebrated with Lethbridge four generation newborn photos. Her mom, grandmother, and great grandmother all took part in her photo session and wrapped her in traditional blankets while she was happy to receive the snuggles! Zenaya did amazing at her session, drifting in and out of sleep and never making a fuss. Her mom was the only victim and received a poop explosion during bare bum time!

David the Scavenger in the Post-Apocalyptic Burnt Countryside

December 3rd, 2017

post apocalyptic world creative portraits

While the tragedy of the local wildfires continued into the autumn, I wanted to turn the ashes into something beautiful and planned out more ideas in my post-apocalypse inspired series. David was kind enough to be on call for nearly two months while we waited for the unexpected early snow to dry up, and we found a perfect single day window of opportunity. We made use of the aftermath of one of the Lethbridge grass fires (this one had been started by an out of control camp fire during the summer).

David put together an amazing outfit and totally fit the part. He even came prepared with weapon and tool props! It’s not often you have a conversation like this…
Subject: I brought an axe.
Photographer: Oh good, I can save the hammer and meat tenderizer for another model.

I’m loving this series and I hope to keep it going! (You can check out the first post-apocalypse photoshoot with Jenn here!)
