Indian Battle Park Summer Family Session [Vince & Brenda]

Indian Battle Park summer family session

I met up with Vince and Brenda for their very first Indian Battle Park summer family session, a great way to celebrate the arrival of the (fairly) recent addition to their family! The girls are already such great sisters and it was so adorable to see their smiles every time they sat together (at least until hair was being tugged on).

The Lethbridge coulees were like a lush green jungle when we went there and it couldn’t have looked prettier.

p.s. Sure his smiles on command are great, but I think their Chihuahua is extra cute just because his name is Michael Jackson :)

Waterton Baptism Photos [Heidi]

Heidi Waterton Baptism Photos

I first met Erin and Renzo for their Waterton wedding two years ago and I was excited when they contacted me again for their Waterton baptism photos. It’s always an honor to follow families as they grow, and even more so when they are traveling from so far away for this important moment in their new baby girl’s life!

Their little girl Heidi is absolutely adorable with her bright blue eyes and infectious smile. She was in a great mood all day, even in the wind, and loved all the attention she was getting! Erin and Renzo’s full immediate families came along on the trip, making it that much more special.

The baptism was performed at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Waterton, which is the same church and priest from their wedding. :) Heidi was on her best behavior during the baptism and didn’t even cry once!

Lethbridge Evening Maternity Session [Sacha]

Lethbridge evening maternity session

I met Sacha and Danny a couple years ago for their family photos, and this summer they will be welcoming a new baby into their family! Before the baby arrives, they got together with the kids for a Lethbridge evening maternity session at the university’s lake. Sacha looks radiant and the whole family is so happy and excited for the baby’s arrival.

The last time we did photos was one of the coldest days of that year while these photos were on one of the hottest, so hopefully our next session will be somewhere in between :) Like last time, they were amazing at posing through the extreme weather!

Henderson Lake Summer Newborn Portraits [Evelyn]

Henderson Lake summer newborn portraits

I love seeing childhood friends starting their families. This summer was Andrea’s turn when her and Tylor welcomed their brand new baby girl Evelyn into their home! Just a little while after Evelyn arrived, we met up for Henderson Lake summer newborn portraits on an absolutely gorgeous evening in Lethbridge. Evelyn was adorable in her pretty white dress and was one of the sleepiest babies I’ve ever worked with, though she did open one eye at me for a moment to check out what I was doing :)

Andrea and Tylor are so in love with her and radiating so much happiness. It’s wonderful seeing them together. I can’t wait to see how adorable she will be dressed at their wedding next year… with Andrea’s amazing wedding planning skills I know it will be super cute!

Summer River Bottom Family Photos [Lily, Emily & Travis]

summer river bottom family photos

The evening is a perfect time for summer river bottom family photos during a heat wave! Lily came down to Indian Battle Park in Lethbridge with her mom and dad for their family photos and had so much fun exploring the coulees. She loved running through the trails and having her parents pick her up to swing her, but probably her favorite thing of all were fake sneezes. The bigger your fake sneeze, the harder she would laugh! She even got pretty good at faking her own by the end of the session :)

Stanley Park Family Photos [Linda]

Stanley Park family photos

I met Linda waaaaay back in university and when we recently reconnected, we discussed how fun it would be to get together to update her family photos. Since her mom lives in Calgary, the timing worked out perfectly when I was passing through to make a stop in Stanley Park for their family session with her son Teagan, her mom, and Teagan’s dad.

Teagan was promised only a few serious photos and then he was able to let loose! I was pleased to find the whole family is goofy like this and made the BEST silly faces for photos (I think everyone learned from Grandma, the master of silly faces!).
