Extended Family Christmas Photos [The Major Family]

Lethbridge extended family Christmas photos

It means so much when families invite me into their homes during their limited reunion time together. The Major family had all of their children and grandchildren down in Lethbridge for the holidays and decided it was a great time to get some extended family Christmas photos. This family is hilarious and I loved all the goofy photos they wanted to do (each serious photo needed a goofy equivalent, of course!). Their interactions are so amazing and they really feed off each other’s creative energy.

Lethbridge Indoor Autumn Family Photos [Bernie & Barbara]

Lethbridge indoor autumn family photos

I can’t believe how much Annelies has grown! It feels like just yesterday we did her one year photos but she just recently celebrated her second birthday. Her grandma and grandpa were excited to get the whole family together for portraits that week in Lethbridge. We started out with their indoor autumn family photos to avoid the leftover chill that hung around from the day before, plus to get a few photos in peace from the usual Lethbridge wind :) Their wardrobe color scheme looked so great in Markin Hall at the university!

Annelies had so much fun being the center of attention and especially loved getting chased by her dad when she tried to run away. Barbara and Bernie love doting on their granddaughter and she had the biggest smiles the whole time. She’s such a well behaved two year old that it was even easier to photograph her now than when she was one! Maybe she just hasn’t learned the word “no” yet ;)

Lethbridge Children’s Sister Portraits [Kennedy & Kaia]

Lethbridge children's sister portraits

Kennedy and Kaia’s mom surprised their dad with children’s sister portraits of the girls for his Christmas present. While he was briefly out of town, the girls and their faithful dogs visited me at the University of Lethbridge lake. Kaia is still a little too young to understand the concept of secrets so we had a backup story of me being a friend practising photos to avoid any spoiling!

The last time I photographed the family was before Kennedy could walk on her own so it was incredible to see how much they have grown! Even the dogs, Jake and Digger, are much more white than they were last time, though they still have the full energy of golden retrievers. We made sure to focus on their senior dog Digger who is getting quite up there in years so they can have some beautiful photos of him.

Casa Indoor Kids Portraits [Stefan]

CASA indoor kids portraits

Each winter for the past few years I have photographed Stefan as he turns one year older and I can never believe how much he has grown since the last time I saw him. Even though he has gotten a little more shy, he has kept his goofy personality and is awesome at making silly faces. This year we chose to do Casa indoor kids portraits to keep out of the wind where he was able to show me his superhero moves.

Lethbridge outdoor newborn photography

Daniel’s family welcomed him into their home as baby number three and celebrated his arrival with a photo session. Daniel got to be the center of attention while we waited for his dad and older brother to come home, and he had quite the power nap which made him so peaceful and easy to work with :)

When the family was rounded up, we headed to the river bottom for Pavan Park newborn family photos. The older siblings had so much fun playing in the leaves and I’m sure they can’t wait until their little brother can join them!

Nicholas Sheran autumn children's photos

While their family was visiting Lethbridge, Lilly and Sunnie swung by for some Nicholas Sheran autumn children’s photos. Their mom found them such cute outfits that arrived just in time for their portrait session and we had such a beautiful afternoon at the lake. These two are such great little models and could throw on the most natural smile on command. They had so much fun running around the park and throwing leaves in the air.
