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!

Henderson Lake Summer Family Photography [Freya & Kol]

Henderson Lake summer family photography

Freya and Kol’s mom planned a special photoshoot for them with their grandma and grandpa, aunty and uncle, and “cousin” Corb the dog while everyone was in town for the weekend. After a very quick surprise rainfall, we were able to capture beautiful sun-kissed Henderson Lake summer family photography.

It was so fun to see this group again, especially because Kol is such a new addition and I hadn’t seen Freya since she was a baby! They are such cute kids and everyone in the family is so in love with them. They loved the attention so much, it was hard to do any photos that didn’t involve grandma or aunty!

Extended Family Indoor Session in Lethbridge [Egidio & Betty Lou]

Lethbridge extended family indoor session

Egidio and Betty Lou had all of their family come down to visit for Easter and decided it would be a perfect time for an extended family indoor session (especially considering the crazy wind outside!). We escaped the breeze by going to the University of Lethbridge, a fitting location as most of the adult family members had attended school there at some point!

This group is a blended family, but you’d never know with how close they all are to each other. The cousins act more like a large group of siblings and the family is so caring and warm with each other, with a healthy dose of silly.

Prairie Tractor Club Family Reunion [Mary & Jack]

Prairie Tractor Club family reunion

Mary and Jack held their Prairie Tractor Club family reunion to celebrate their wedding anniversary. All four generations travelled to Picture Butte to be there with them! The Tractor Club (aka Coyote Flats) has so many great spots to take photos; with everyone already there for dinner, it made it easy to have everything all in one spot! We had quite the variety of weather, having to run for shelter to a barn halfway through as a thunder storm rolled through. Once the rain stopped, we only had a few minutes before the sun was in our eyes and we had to find shade!

Mary and Jack were so elated to see all of their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren in one place. Mary drifted from family to family with a giant grin on her face! Their marriage is so strong after all these years and he still makes her giggle :)
