Lethbridge Winter Coulee Pet Photos [Tanya & Will]

Lethbridge winter coulee pet photos

Tanya was in need of updated professional headshot photos and her house made a great studio! She collects artwork on her travels and it added such great pops of colour in the background. By the way, doesn’t she have a great name? ;) Even her dog Will got to update his headshots while he waited for her to switch outfits.

After her headshots, we finished the session with Lethbridge winter coulee pet photos. Tanya regularly goes cross country skiing with Will. There wasn’t quite enough snow at the edge of the coulees to actually put her skis on, but we brought them along to pose with.

One sign of a good photographer is being able to photograph black pets and still have details show. I think it is an entirely new challenge to photograph a white dog in the snow! In a few spots the snow was a little deep for Will but he had so much fun bounding through the powder!

Snowy West Lethbridge Engagement Session [Christine & Joe]

snowy west Lethbridge engagement session

Christine and Joe didn’t quite have the engagement session we were expecting! We had booked their photos many weeks in advance to take place over the February long weekend. Our plan was to drive out to the Crowsnest Pass, and we hoped there would still be some snow left. The last two Februarys have been a little dry here, so we didn’t want to get our hopes up too much! As their photography date approached, we heard tales of daily highway closures. Then it came: yet another heavy snowfall warning on our travel day! In the end, they had a very snowy west Lethbridge engagement session just as the huge snowfall began its descent.

As a substitute “forest,” we met at Aperture Park on the west side and hiked through snow that ranged from one inch to two feet deep. Christine and Joe were such amazing sports about it! Christine feels the same way about winter as I do (which is not favourably), yet they perfectly acted like everything was warm and fine. Even while being pelted by snow, they were so lost in each other. Joe couldn’t resist nuzzling into her and making them both break out in huge grins.

Coaldale Lifestyle Family Photos [Lydia and the Kids]

Coaldale lifestyle family photos

It was on an important one year anniversary in their lives that Lydia and her four children invited me into their home for Coaldale lifestyle family photos. Lydia wanted to capture what their life is like at this moment in time – what their house looked like, the activities they loved doing together there, and the personalities of the kids at their current ages. We started out with a snugly story time on the couch before each of the children gave me a tour of their awesome bedrooms and favourite activities there. After a game of Jenga, we went outside for hockey and bike rides. The kids loved bouncing between so many activities and having tickle fights on the bed.

Christmas Pyjama Family Photos in Lethbridge [Elaine & Floyd]

indoor Lethbridge extended family photos

Floyd, Elaine, and their family invited me over during the Christmas weekend. They wanted some fun Christmas pyjama family photos before they headed to their ride on the Polar Express train! Each family wore a cute set of matching holiday PJs and festive hats. The kids were buzzing with Christmas excitement even though it was still a few days away and loved having a chance to play with their cousins and grandparents.

We started out the session in their home with some more classic portraits, and their beautiful red walls that we used as a backdrop really tied together the Christmas theme.

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos [John & Beatrice]

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos

John and Beatrice were ecstatic to have their whole family together for Christmas! Once the holiday excitement died down a few days later, I met up with them for Lethbridge indoor three generation family photos at the University. We had hoped to do the photos outdoors, but with wind chills that week of -30C and colder, the University was a very appropriate backup!

The kids were a little iffy about having to hug their siblings, but the adults gladly grabbed onto each other for tight squeezes! They are definitely a closely knit family :)

Lethbridge In Home Newborn Photo Session [Branegan]

Lethbridge in home newborn photo session

Branegan arrived right on schedule for his family just before Christmas! They celebrated his arrival with an in home newborn photo session while the other kids were out at school. Branegan was so laid back during photos and even though he didn’t really sleep through the session, he trusted us enough to rest his eyes, as long as we kept our promise not to change him. He was happiest every moment he got to snuggle with his mom and dad.
