Picture Butte Coyote Flats Family Portraits [Rick & Mary]

Coyote Flats family portraits

Rick and Mary celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary by having Coyote Flats family portraits taken with their children and brand new grand daughter. I hadn’t seen their eldest son and daughter in law since their wedding so it was wonderful to see them again with an adorable baby!

The Prairie Tractor Museum is always such a great location to use because of all the different backdrops it has. Everything looked fantastic with the gray and coral colour scheme the family picked out for their clothes. I loved how well coordinated they were! Our only issue was that the photos took place the day before the big wind storm and it was already pretty gusty… we had to hide behind a lot of buildings and time the photos perfectly for the girls’ hair! Despite the wind everyone was in great spirits to celebrate this special day for their parents.

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.
