Beautiful Lethbridge Autumn Portraits at the Nature Reserve [Mishaela]

beautiful Lethbridge autumn portraits

Each fall, Mishaela and her sister have their photos taken together for their parents to display in their home. This year marked a break in that tradition while Mishaela was away for school, but she couldn’t let her mother’s wall go empty! She surprised her parents for Christmas with beautiful Lethbridge autumn portraits of herself. I can’t believe the day we chose – Mishaela got the absolute best of the fall colors two days before the snow and wind knocked them all down!

To celebrate her time away at school, Mishaela incorporated props from her education into a few of the photos. Once in a while her stethoscope, textbooks, or flute would make an appearance. She chose just the right number of textbooks to be the perfect height to lean onto! Mishaela has such a positive, upbeat personality and was so much fun to work with.

Gem of the West Wedding Ceremony [Kelti & Matthew]

Kelti & Matthew, Gem of the West wedding ceremony

Kelti and Matthew held their Gem of the West wedding ceremony on the cusp of autumn with the most important people in their lives in attendance. Kelti is heavily involved in the community so choosing a venue with so much historic value was such a perfect fit.

Kelti, Matthew, and all of their wedding party got ready at the Charles Street Suites, which is conveniently decorated in their wedding colours! They kept to separate floors so that they could share a first look on the staircase before heading out for photos.

Kelti and Matthew both give off so much positive energy and had us laughing all day. It was clear to see why they are so amazing together while watching them interact; they bounce that energy off each other nonstop and hardly ever quit smiling. They, their siblings, and their wedding party were constantly hilarious and never took anything too seriously – even when tackle chases gave way to ripped pants early in the day.

Congratulations, Kelti and Matthew!

Lethbridge River Bottom Anniversary Portraits [Charleen & Chris]

Lethbridge River Bottom anniversary portraits

It was great to catch up with Charleen and Chris again for their Lethbridge river bottom anniversary portraits. I love so much that they keep up this tradition of updating their photos every few years for their anniversary, and keeping it close to their wedding date makes it so great for reflecting on how their relationship has grown. Even though they’ve been together a while, they are still giggly like newly weds and have no awkwardness about cuddling and being close to each other.

We spent a beautiful evening exploring behind the Helen Schuler Nature Centre for their anniversary session. The fall colours have been so amazing this year and I loved the colours Charleen and Chris chose to wear to go with it. It’s especially impressive when they put their wardrobes together at the last minute between having colds and being busy with work! ;)

Lethbridge river bottom family photos

Jantina and Allen were in the area visiting family and decided to take advantage of their time down here by doing Lethbridge river bottom family photos. Their girls have such cute blonde hair and striking blue eyes, and the littlest was just about to celebrate her first birthday so it was the perfect time for photos! We started out at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and wandered through the park looking for bunnies and playing with leaves. The girls did so good for their age and made it through the whole session like perfect little models.

Helen Schuler Nature Reserve Family Photos [Callie]

Helen Schuler Nature Reserve family photos

Callie and her mom and dad met with me for their Helen Schuler Nature Reserve family photos this autumn. What a happy kid Callie is! Her mom warned me in advance that Callie was your typical two year old… ready to do her own thing and go on the war path if we suggested otherwise. Instead, she spent the whole session happily following all the instructions, watching for bunnies, and throwing leaves in the air!

We started at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre then made our way into the reserve to find all the amazing colours. Callie loved spending this special time with her parents and had so much fun!

Tess & Rae | Lethbridge Sister Portraits

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

I’ve known Tess for a few years through dance, and when her sister Rae was recently in town, they decided to have a photo session together. We had to fake a bit of the “sisterly love” but I’m sure mom will be happy about that :) (more…)
