Rural Alberta Extended Family Photos [Luke & Lammie]

rural Alberta extended family photos

Before one of their children moved away, Luke and Lammie wanted to get the whole family together for a big summer portrait session. Their own farm made the perfect spot for their rural Alberta extended family photos. We had no shortage of locations with their beautiful garden rows, huge trees, and nearby fields… with just a few ant colonies to watch out for ;)

All of the siblings had so much fun goofing around together and after Lammie stuck her tongue out at Luke, you could tell where the kids get it from! The little kids were absolutely adorable and loved spending time at grandma and grandpa’s house for the afternoon.

Taber Newborn Baby Photos [Lucas]

Taber newborn baby photos

I was so excited to hear that another of my past wedding couples recently welcomed a baby into the world! I drove out to Taber for newborn baby photos of Lucas with his mom and dad, who were a little sleepy from their constant wake ups but so happy to have their little boy home. Lucas is normally a heavy sleeper but was fascinated by getting to be a model and carefully watched us through the whole session. He was happiest when snuggled by mom or dad so we were able to get lots of great photos of them embracing him :)

Aperture Park Autumn Family Photos [JJ & Shaun]

Aperture Park autumn family photos

It was wonderful to get together again with JJ, Shaun, and their girls for this year’s round of Aperture Park autumn family photos! Since we had also used the university’s lake for their last family session, I made sure to stick to all different spots this time around and this led us to the best pile of leaves for the girls to throw. Their leaf throwing got to be their reward for lasting through the photos ;)

The girls are so full of energy that I could barely keep up, but letting them make all the silly faces they needed helped them to pause once in a while. They are so cute together and I love their intense hugs that make them almost tip over.

Prairie Arbour Family Photos [Melissa & Schuyler]

Prairie Arbour family photos

It was wonderful to see Melissa and Schuyler again for their Prairie Arbour family photos. I last photographed them when their baby was born, and she’s running away from everyone now! They wanted to make use of the beautiful landscape around their new house for their session; they had amazing coulee views just a short walk across the road from their house, and it was a beautiful, calm, sunkissed morning. The kids especially loved exploring the coulees and making ladybug friends :)

Autumn Farm Family Photos [The Perry Family]

autumn farm family photos

As a gift for their mom, the Perry family went with photos! Mom used her certificate for autumn farm family photos at their acreage near Chin, Alberta and our timing worked out great in that we were able to do the photos on their wedding anniversary. After photos, everyone was ready to party :)

The wind that day was insane, but incredibly the trees at their farm blocked most of it and we barely noticed a thing! They had a beautiful property with no shortage of photo locations and lots of cute critters wandering around to keep us company. The family was so giggly and cute together!

West Lethbridge Outdoor Newborn Session [Midnight]

West Lethbridge outdoor newborn session

Considering what a dry year it’s been, it was shocking how many times we needed to reschedule these photos because of rain! I finally got to see baby Midnight and meet up again with Danny, Sacha, Rainy, and Jayden for his West Lethbridge outdoor newborn session. We went to the university’s Aperture Park again so we could recreate a few of their maternity family photos with Midnight this time. To show the transition they cleverly chose the same wardrobe as last time :)

Midnight already has a gorgeous full head of hair and was super laid back during his first photos, only fussing at the end when he got fed up of not getting milk while being snuggled.
