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! ;)

Norland Bed and Breakfast Wedding Album [Joshua & Christina]

Joshua and Christina Lethbridge Norland Bed and Breakfast Wedding Album

I love big chunky albums like this! I could barely lift the box with this Norland Bed and Breakfast wedding album when the courier delivered it to me :) Christina and Josh had such a beautiful wedding at the Norland this summer and I loved going through the photos they selected as their favourites. The album beautifully covers the timeline of their day and all the happiness they experienced with their children, family, and friends.

This is an example of the Modern+ Album, one of the albums offered specially for weddings.

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]

November 17th, 2016

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]

November 15th, 2016

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!

Waterton Anniversary Portrait Session [Louis & Laurie]

November 10th, 2016

Waterton anniversary portrait session

Louis is a true romantic. For his 50th wedding anniversary with Laurie he surprised her with a trip to Waterton, a stay at the historic Prince of Wales Hotel, a fun weekend filled with exploring the park, and a Waterton anniversary portrait session.

I met with them at the hotel where we decided against the overlook photos in the original plan… because my goodness, was it windy! Instead we found shelter lower down at Linnett Lake and within the townsite by the docks, and luckily didn’t run into any of the bears that have been frequenting the town. (Though we were told we missed a bear visit by 15 minutes!)

Don’t let the fact that they prefer to be serious in photos fool you… throughout the session, Louis and Laurie constantly made each other laugh and are obviously still so in love after all these years. I wish them another happy 50 years together :)
