Indian Battle Park Fall Morning Session [Amber, Ian, & the Kids]

Indian Battle Park fall morning session

I have been happily watching Amber and Ian’s family grow since I photographed their wedding my very first year I started my business. I feel like it wasn’t that long ago, but how big the kids are getting tells me otherwise! The kids have grown up so much since the last time I saw them and they’re now at the perfect age to follow all the directions I throw at them for photos. We met down in the river bottom for their Indian Battle Park fall morning session on a beautiful day and had a bit of time left over at the end for a playground party.

Indoor Family Christmas Photos [Elora, Thomas & Darby]

indoor family Christmas photos

It was great to see Elora, Darby and Thomas again for their indoor family Christmas photos at their home in Lethbridge. This will be the last family session with just the three of them as they are welcoming baby number two into the house in a couple months. Thomas joked that not only have I documented their family growing, I have also documented his hair growing! I insisted he better have a waist length beard the next time they do family photos ;)

Elora was adorable in her pretty red dress, which looked so great against their Christmas tree. She was so tolerant of all the silly ways we were propping her up but when she did get fussy, a little bit of singing from her dad and cuddles from mom cheered her right back up.

Young Boy Birthday Portraits in Lethbridge [Stefan]

young boy birthday portraits in Lethbridge

One of my favourite annual traditions is photographing Stefan each year around his birthday, and now that he’s getting more tolerant of the cold weather (though not that cold for December!) we got to do most of the photos outdoors at the University’s lake this time around. That being said, his mom and I were still pretty cold. ;) Stefan’s jumping, sliding, and running around definitely contributed to keeping him warm!

His personality has really opened up this year, going from being quiet and a little shy (though always rocking silly face photos) to telling me all kinds of stories and being totally up for jumping in the air as many times as I requested. His mom and dad joined him for a few photos this time too!

Indian Battle Park Snowy Family Photos [Danny & Sacha]

Indian Battle Park snowy family photos

When Sacha hoped for snow for their session, we kept our fingers crossed extra hard – you just never know with the weather in Lethbridge – and we ended up so lucky (as I write this one day later, almost all of the snow has melted)! It was even a fairly warm day for November, unlike at my first photo session with them where it was barely -20C outside (this is one tough family). Danny and Sacha got the Indian Battle park snowy family photos they had hoped for and the kids were such great sports about it, as usual!

I can’t believe how big Midnight has grown since I last saw them, from not being able to hold his head up to his big brother Jayden having to wrangle him in as he runs away! We explored just outside of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and the boys had so much fun playing in the snow and jumping around to stay warm.

Indian Battle Park Fall Family Photo Session [JJ & Shaun]

Indian Battle Park fall family photo session

JJ and Shaun probably expected their girls to calm down a bit as they got older, but I think Maddie and Taylor are the very definition of “firecrackers!” I always know it’s going to be a hilarious time with their laughter, crazy expressions, and super tight hugs. At the very least, photos are easier for their mom and dad year after year because even though the girls’ energy has no limits, they still listen when they are supposed to (especially with some grandparents helping out in the background!).

This year we chose to do an Indian Battle Park fall family photo session since we usually stick to the west side and the girls loved being in more of a nature setting with all the trees to climb on and deer to spot in the bushes.

Indian Battle Park Autumn Family Session [Lucas]

Indian Battle Park autumn family session

Lucas is getting so big! I last saw him for his newborn photos and now he’s running around and being adorable all over. His family visited Lethbridge to have an Indian Battle Park autumn family session and Lucas was READY. As soon as I greeted them, he flashed me an ear to ear grin and not once during photos did he lose that smile. Well, towards the end he got a little more serious but a few perfectly timed fart sounds definitely fixed that. It’s amazing to see how much joy he brings his mom and dad and I’m excited to see their family growing!
