Christmas Pyjama Family Photos in Lethbridge [Elaine & Floyd]

indoor Lethbridge extended family photos

Floyd, Elaine, and their family invited me over during the Christmas weekend. They wanted some fun Christmas pyjama family photos before they headed to their ride on the Polar Express train! Each family wore a cute set of matching holiday PJs and festive hats. The kids were buzzing with Christmas excitement even though it was still a few days away and loved having a chance to play with their cousins and grandparents.

We started out the session in their home with some more classic portraits, and their beautiful red walls that we used as a backdrop really tied together the Christmas theme.

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos

John and Beatrice were ecstatic to have their whole family together for Christmas! Once the holiday excitement died down a few days later, I met up with them for Lethbridge indoor three generation family photos at the University. We had hoped to do the photos outdoors, but with wind chills that week of -30C and colder, the University was a very appropriate backup!

The kids were a little iffy about having to hug their siblings, but the adults gladly grabbed onto each other for tight squeezes! They are definitely a closely knit family :)

indoor Lethbridge Christmas family photos

I have been photographing Bob and Mieke’s family for nearly a decade now but haven’t seen them in a while as some of their children have moved away. This year they had everyone return come home for an early holiday celebration and called me over to the house to capture the event through indoor Lethbridge Christmas family photos. Some of the kids were much bigger since the last time I photographed the family, plus there were a bunch of new little faces! The cousins love spending time together while Mieke and Bob beam with pride over their grandchildren. Thank you for bringing me into your home and letting me capture your family’s memories after all these years!

Nicholas Sheran extended family photos

This family photo ended up being downsized a little… Enough of Jenny and Herb’s grandchildren fell ill the weekend of their Nicholas Sheran extended family photos that they decided to just do photos with their children, bringing our 250 person session down to 22! Despite the lack of children, I still had to make some silly faces to get smiles out of a few of the men :)

Herb and Jenny are such a sweet couple and show so much kindness towards their family. All of the siblings are hilarious together and I got to enjoy an hour of teasing banter as they hassled each other. It was wonderful to have their children get together for their 60th wedding anniversary!


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 :)
