Frosty Lethbridge Landscape Photography [The West Side]

frosty Lethbridge landscape photography

I always joke that I only take photos with people (or animals!) in them, but I’m always jealous of all the amazing photos landscape photographers take by getting up before sunrise. I did not get up before sunrise, but I did get up early enough on one of our recent foggy days to actually catch the hoarfrost and fog! I set off bundled up to take some frosty Lethbridge landscape photography.

Quickly I learned that it was only foggy for several blocks around my house and everywhere else was bathed in winter sunlight. Luckily the frost still clung to the trees so I wasn’t left cursing being out in the cold for nothing!

Morrígna the Post-Apocalyptic Warrior

post apocalypse warrior portraits

With heavy smoke in the air late this summer, unusually high temperatures, and crunchy vegetation from the lack of moisture, Southern Alberta was looking like the setting of a post-apocalyptic storyline. Since that is one of my favorite sub-genres of fiction, I jumped at the chance to create something out of it! Jenn loved the concept and immediately organized this amazing outfit for an epic female warrior out in the wastelands to become Morrígna. Once her outfit was finalized, she pooled together her resources (aka her amazing friends) and came up with a whole arsenal of weapons fit for a brutal post-apocalyptic lifestyle. I can hardly believe the crossbow is a children’s toy! (It’s from Europe… they do toys a little differently there!)

Jenn is a fierce, confident woman and was so perfect in this role. She managed to hide how sweet she actually is in real life and came across as someone you don’t want to mess with!

p.s. Jenn did her own makeup too! Here’s some background on why she chose her warrior name.

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!

Heritage Hall Autumn Wedding Ceremony [Trent & Dominika]

Trent & Dominika, Heritage Hall autumn wedding ceremony

Trent and Dominika planned a Heritage Hall autumn wedding ceremony and reception and worked beautiful fall colours into their wardrobe, flowers, and décor. Despite a morning of rain, the day turned beautiful right after they said their vows and we were able to go find all the autumn colours they had hoped for.

As Trent’s father so perfectly put it during speeches: “As long as you two keep giggling together all the time, you can get through anything.” I don’t think that Trent and Dominika will ever tire of each other’s company with how much they joke and make each other laugh. They were hilarious and since their first date involved a visit to a liquor store, we even stopped by that same store for a few silly photos on the way back.

Their daughters were so adorable in their little white dresses and probably had more fun than anyone else with how much they danced at the reception! The cupcakes definitely helped them make it through the long day they had :)

Congratulations, Trent and Dominika!

Helen Schuler Nature Reserve maternity session

I love hearing from my past brides and grooms and finding out they are growing a baby bump! Emily and Jeremy are starting their family and we were able to get together for a Helen Schuler Nature Reserve maternity session on a gorgeous spring evening.

We met up at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and made our way to the High Level Bridge, stopping at every gorgeously lit spot along the way. Emily is an absolutely beautiful mother already and it was wonderful to see the bond between her and Jeremy again. They are so excited to meet their little one!

Fort Macleod Spring Wedding [Henry & Kari]

Henry and Kari, Fort Macleod spring wedding

After an entire day of torrential downpour, the clouds cleared and left behind gorgeous, lush green colors for Kari and Henry’s Fort Macleod spring wedding! We met up with the couple for their first look in the Fort Macleod Wilderness Park, where Henry couldn’t stop smiling hearing Kari approaching him. Once they had a few extremely happy moments alone, we went down by the river and the landmark green bridge with their wedding party (with their family helping out controlling traffic!).

After family photos in the park and their early afternoon ceremony, we met back up with them at the Galt Museum for the rest of their photos. They are so happy together and their friends seemed absolutely excited for them, making our job so easy!

Congratulations, Kari and Henry!
