Teen Girl Portraits in Taber [Tayler]

teen girl portraits in Taber

I’ve known Tayler for a little over a year from dance and always thought she was one of the nicest people I have ever met. Now that I have visited her family and witnessed their love of animals, I see I was right! I was able to photograph the beautiful Tayler this autumn for her yearly photos and we spent all our time playing with their horses, dogs, and many rescued cats, all of whom loyally followed us around looking for love and attention.

Her family has a beautiful acreage near Taber full of awesome old trucks, large trees, and plenty of room for the animals to play. Tayler was such a natural in front of the camera that I was able to keep throwing cats at her and still keep a good pace ;)

Lethbridge Fantasy Night Portraits [Elizabeth]

Lethbridge fantasy night portraits

I had so much fun doing Elizabeth’s costume photos last year so I was really excited when she contacted me again this year to do another fantasy concept shoot. This time the theme was around light based magic, inspired by a book series she is reading, and night portraits involving light painting were the perfect way to pull it off.

We found a flat spot near Lethbridge’s Pavan Park to get lots of wide open sky just after sunset and started with her blue and white fan veils she has been learning. The nice thing about fan veils is you don’t need to wait for the wind to make them look really cool :) We did a few ghosting photos with those, then it was finally dark enough to pull out the light painting tools!

Elizabeth was awesome at holding still while I ran around her and we all dealt with a swarm of mosquitoes :)

girls wearing masks in Lethbridge barn

I’m so glad for this impromptu photoshoot with models Rachel Kieper and Pandy Duplessis at the October photographer/model collaboration. I wanted to photograph each girl, and their outfits and masks came together perfectly as I started picking out their wardrobe. They did an amazing job being both eerie and beautiful in the old abandoned barn location.

Zombie Girl Portraits Lethbridge [Hope]

zombie girl portraits Lethbridge

Hope was adorable for her portrait session… but I think something may have been wrong with her? Maybe she wasn’t feeling well that day? ;)

I worked with Hope as part of a Halloween themed photographer/model collaboration and wanted to take some gory but lovely zombie girl portraits of her. Of course I had to go as traditional and cutesy as possible for her portrait poses to juxtapose all the blood and gore she had going on! Hope did a fantastic job on her own makeup and managed to keep her contacts in despite the crazy wind making them shift :)

sugar skull, Dia de los Muertos photos in Lethbridge

As a personal project before Halloween, I recruited model Tuezday Kabel & makeup artist Jill Renner for a Día de los Muertos themed photoshoot with sugar skull face painting. These ladies rocked it! We coordinated the skull paint with the autumn colors outside and found the most colorful splashes we could in Indian Battle Park.

Model: Tuezday Kabel

Lethbridge Outdoor Fall Portraiture [Mackenzie]

Lethbridge outdoor fall portraiture

Mackenzie rocked these photos! We had such amazing saturated colors during the first round of autumn leaf changes here in Lethbridge and I was so eager to capture them in some outdoor fall portraiture. Mackenzie was a perfect model, especially since her favorite dress color complemented the foliage so perfectly. It was awesome to catch up with her since she just moved back to Lethbridge and she was such a dream to work with!
