Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding [Robert & Carla]

Robert and Carla, Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding

Robert and Carla made sure family played a prominent part in their Waterton Bayshore Inn autumn wedding. Their wedding party was mostly made up of siblings, their small guest count gave them more time to visit with family members, and most importantly, their adorable girls were a highlight of the day and got to enjoy their own special dance with Rob in the evening. They made it obvious what their priorities are in their life together :)

They chose such a gorgeous day at the end of the season in Waterton to hold their wedding. Their orange and red colour scheme perfectly complemented the fall colours and the dwindling tourists meant we got to visit a mostly empty Red Rock Canyon!

Carla and Robert were a joy to work with. They are madly in love and busted out hilarious jokes every few minutes. Their wedding party members were so warm and generous too, so it really must run in the family.

Congratulations, Robert and Carla!

Fort Macleod Backyard Wedding Ceremony [Cameron & Morgan]

Cameron and Morgan, Fort Macleod backyard wedding ceremony

Morgan and Cameron travelled south to Morgan’s family acreage to hold their Fort Macleod backyard wedding ceremony. Their perfect sunny day really made the cotton candy pink and blue color scheme pop! I loved how they mix and matched the colors throughout the wedding party and their children, with their daughter lucky enough to get the most colorful poofy dress that was a mix of both.

They kept their wedding very small with immediate family, which made the day so special and intimate. Their DIY touches were put together so well… Morgan made the bouquets and flower girl dress herself!

After all the years their relationship goes back, the deep intimacy and comfort they share together was obvious.

Congratulations, Cameron and Morgan!

Waterton Extended Family Photos [Janet & the Kids]

Waterton extended family photos

Janet planned a wonderful trip with her children and their families over the long weekend. The whole family spent their weekend visiting Waterton and while there decided to have extended family photos done.

We started out our session at the Prince of Wales Hotel cliffs where “windy” doesn’t begin to describe the gusts that day! (I think that was our trade-off for narrowly escaping the forecast of rain.) We made our time there short so the children wouldn’t hate us too much… just enough time to get a few photos with the amazing view :)

The rest of the portrait session was spent at the gorgeous Cameron Falls, where we managed to sneak in right at dinner time when all the tourists were disappearing. The kids LOVED chasing the many chipmunks there so even when they got tired of photos, they had some good stress relief. It was amazing to see the love between Janet and her family. They are so special to her and she was so elated having everyone together.

Mom and the Girls Photoshoot [Amanda, Mia, and Nova]

mom and the girls photoshoot in Lethbridge

For Amanda’s birthday, she treated herself to a mom and the girls photoshoot with her daughters Mia and Nova. These three blonde girls are so gorgeous!

It was so fun to photograph Mia again since I haven’t seen her since her newborn photos and now she’s a feisty two year old! Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge was such a fun location for Nova who loved looking at the deer and picking dandelions. We all had to team up to chase her around (including Mia’s friends she brought along), but Nova definitely insisted on doing her own thing. Luckily we were able to trick her into a bunch of photos by playing off what she thought she was choosing to do on her own ;)

Spring Morning Family Photos [Carly & Andy]

Lethbridge spring morning family photos

I’ve worked with Carly many times for photography, but that was all for her job… this time her and her family got to be in front of my camera! She celebrated Mother’s Day with spring morning family photos with her boys at Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge. However, her littlest guy didn’t get the memo that it was Mother’s Day and wasn’t fully cooperative after a while! Our photos slowly evolved more and more into playing with sticks and swinging him in the air to get him excited again ;)

Indian Battle Park Morning Children’s Portraits [Audrey]

Indian Battle Park morning children's portraits

Each time I take photos of Audrey, I hardly recognize her from the last time! She has grown so much in the last two years and this time around has added a puppy friend to her life. This was actually my second time working with Minnie because she helped us out at Halloween with our Windy City Canine Rescue, and just a short time after that, Audrey’s family adopted her.

Audrey was such a sweetheart for her Indian Battle Park morning children’s portraits and had such a fun time playing with and feeding snacks to Minnie.
