Waterton Extended Family Photos [Janet & the Kids]

Waterton extended family photos

Janet planned a wonderful trip with her children and their families over the long weekend. The whole family spent their weekend visiting Waterton and while there decided to have extended family photos done.

We started out our session at the Prince of Wales Hotel cliffs where “windy” doesn’t begin to describe the gusts that day! (I think that was our trade-off for narrowly escaping the forecast of rain.) We made our time there short so the children wouldn’t hate us too much… just enough time to get a few photos with the amazing view :)

The rest of the portrait session was spent at the gorgeous Cameron Falls, where we managed to sneak in right at dinner time when all the tourists were disappearing. The kids LOVED chasing the many chipmunks there so even when they got tired of photos, they had some good stress relief. It was amazing to see the love between Janet and her family. They are so special to her and she was so elated having everyone together.

University of Lethbridge convocation photos

I met up with Bert, his wife Geraldine, and their five beautiful children for his University of Lethbridge convocation photos immediately after his graduation ceremony finished. Bert’s family was buzzing with excitement over his accomplishment, and his sisters were so excited they couldn’t stop hugging him! To celebrate his achievement, we wandered around the U of L campus that afternoon for family portraits. It was such a beautiful day, though that’s not the kind of day you want to be wearing a heavy black robe ;)

Mom and the Girls Photoshoot [Amanda, Mia, and Nova]

mom and the girls photoshoot in Lethbridge

For Amanda’s birthday, she treated herself to a mom and the girls photoshoot with her daughters Mia and Nova. These three blonde girls are so gorgeous!

It was so fun to photograph Mia again since I haven’t seen her since her newborn photos and now she’s a feisty two year old! Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge was such a fun location for Nova who loved looking at the deer and picking dandelions. We all had to team up to chase her around (including Mia’s friends she brought along), but Nova definitely insisted on doing her own thing. Luckily we were able to trick her into a bunch of photos by playing off what she thought she was choosing to do on her own ;)

Spring Morning Family Photos [Carly & Andy]

Lethbridge spring morning family photos

I’ve worked with Carly many times for photography, but that was all for her job… this time her and her family got to be in front of my camera! She celebrated Mother’s Day with spring morning family photos with her boys at Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge. However, her littlest guy didn’t get the memo that it was Mother’s Day and wasn’t fully cooperative after a while! Our photos slowly evolved more and more into playing with sticks and swinging him in the air to get him excited again ;)

Lethbridge Morning Family Session [Kevin & Sarah]

Lethbridge morning family session

It’s hard to manage the separate activities of five children, so I really appreciate Kevin and Sarah taking a moment out of their busy day for their Lethbridge morning family session… even if it meant they had to rush off to their next activity! This family is so sweet together and I couldn’t get over how well behaved and ready for the camera the little ones were. They were definitely a family of perfect models!

Nicholas Sheran spring family photos

I’ve known Sarah and Kyle for quite a few years now but this was the first time I got to meet their adorable kids! Josephine and Levon had a fun time playing in the grass at their Nicholas Sheran spring family photos. The kids are a perfect mix of their mom’s sweetness and their dad’s silliness :) That silliness came in handy from both parents when they had to act ridiculous behind me to get bigger smiles out of the children!
