West Lethbridge Fall Family Portraits [Annelies and her parents]

West Lethbridge fall family portraits

Every couple years I get to hang out with Annelies and see how big she’s getting! This year for her West Lethbridge fall family portraits she showed me all her new dance moves she’s learning and had a great time joking around with me. The absolute funniest thing to her was when we pretended the ducks outside got poop on my camera. Anything to get a smile!

Her mom is a huge Kill Bill fan and lightly worked that theme into their photos. She started with the iconic shoes and went with a vibrant yellow motif around them, and we recreated a few photos of Beatrix with her daughter BB. What a fun idea!

Pavan Park Summer Family Photos [Lucas & Shayna]

Pavan Park summer family photos

We had a bit of trouble getting things going for Lucas and Shayna’s Pavan Park summer family photos with their parents. The first day we were ready to go in the parking lot when a thunder storm hit! A few weeks later we tried again and had a beautiful evening in the river bottom that wasn’t too hot. :)

I last saw Lucas when he was a couple years old. He’s pretty happy to have a little sister to play with now! He’s well on his way to teaching her important life skills like blowing raspberry sounds. They both had a great time chasing their big dog Bear around Pavan Park. He is so patient with them and loves exploring with his family. At our last session, he ended up going for a swim halfway through the photos. This time we managed to keep him dry ;)

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 Coulee Maternity Family Photos [Melissa]

Lethbridge coulee maternity family photos

I met Melissa’s family a few years ago when they were expecting and now I was excited to hear baby #4 is on the way! We went for an adventure in the beautiful landscape where the kids often play near their home for their Lethbridge coulee maternity family photos. Even though it wasn’t technically autumn yet, everything had such a beautiful golden glow! The three children have so much fun together skipping, jumping, and searching for insects in the grass. They’re going to love having a new friend to go exploring with!

Intimate Southminster United Church Chapel Wedding [Mandy & Chris]

Mandy and Chris, Intimate Southminster United Church chapel wedding

Mandy and Chris had an intimate Southminster United Church chapel wedding in the evening. They included so many unique touches in their ceremony. In place of a sand ceremony, they poured their favorite gummy candies together with their boys, and at the end served their guests champagne in custom flutes with a toast to their friends and family.

After the ceremony, we went out for photos with them and their boys. The boys had so much fun exploring the coulees that their clean suits didn’t stay that way for very long! All it did was add to the realism of what daily life is like ;)

Despite the smokey air, Mandy and Chris were in amazing spirits and so elated to be in each other’s company. Mandy was constantly bursting into happy laughter whenever Chris held or kissed her!

Congratulations, Mandy and Chris!

Henderson Lake Family Photos [Amara, Cyndy & Austin]

Henderson Lake family photos

Cyndy and Austin are always a joy to photograph, and it’s even better now that Amara is included! This was my first time meeting their cute little girl and she was so fun to work with. They came down to Lethbridge for Henderson Lake family photos and brought along Amara’s cousin and uncle.

Amara is going to be tall like her mom. She already rivals her cousin Liam in height even though he is a couple years older than her (and he even shares those tall genes!). The kids love playing together and share a strong interest in Paw Patrol ;)

Amara is more the quiet, giggly type, while Liam is all about finding where the action is happening. He had a great time in the park running between the trees and letting his dad swoop him up!
