Coleman, Alberta Maternity Photos [Ashley & Scott]

Coleman, Alberta early spring maternity photos

Ashley and Scott celebrated the upcoming arrival of their baby with Coleman, Alberta maternity photos just before the Easter weekend. Ashley was a stunning mother to be in her white lace dress, which showed off her tummy so perfectly. Her and Scott are so romantic together from the quiet way he holds her to the gentle way he kisses her hand. They’re going to be amazing parents.

We started out the session on the Miner’s Path in Coleman. Even though the leaves aren’t quite out yet for spring, the evergreen trees and abundance of moss gave us enough color. We just had to be careful to avoid the little patches of snow that were still hanging around! After that, we went over to “Scott’s mountain” (the one nearest his home town) and their dog Josie finally got to be included. Josie is a big softie despite her size (choosing to sit in my lap for a moment) and was so excited to smell all the interesting things in the field. She was so excited by the smells that it took a good 5 minutes before she cared about the silly noises I usually make for dogs!

Snowy Coleman Engagement Session [Meaghan & Chad]

winter Crowsnest Pass engagement photos

Meaghan and Chad got so lucky with a snowy Coleman engagement session. When they booked weeks in advance, we had no idea what December would give us and just managed to miss the -20C temperatures! We started at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre parking lot for beautiful snowy views of the rock slide, but this proved to be the chilliest spot of all (it’s almost like being on an exposed mountain surface makes things windier! ;) ) and made our final stop at the Miner’s Path a very welcome warm visit.

They were very committed to their photos and willing to strip down to just sweaters, which looked so cute! I made sure they got to stay extra snuggly and warm their chilly hands up on each other as often as possible. This was definitely no challenge for them as being snuggly comes very naturally! I can’t wait for their wedding next summer, which should be a little easier when we aren’t in big coats and mittens ;)

Miner’s Path Family Photo Session [Tennille & Jim]

Miner's Path family photo session

It’s definitely official at this point: Tennille and Jim make cute kids! This was my first time meeting their newest addition, Owen, and he’s just as cute as his sister Ava! For his first photos we met for a Miner’s Path family photo session in the Crowsnest Pass and I loved watching Ava interact with her new brother. This time they brought their adorable dogs along who did a lot better than expected, but were still super excited to see other dogs along the way :)

Crowsnest Pass Autumn Engagement Session [Brittany & Sam]

Crowsnest Pass autumn engagement session

Brittany was a bridesmaid in one of our favourite past weddings so I was elated when she contacted me for her own wedding! Her and Sam will be getting married in Calgary next year, so for a change of scenery beforehand we planned out a Crowsnest Pass autumn engagement session. We weren’t sure if there would be green leaves, fall colours, or a blanket of snow – you never know with the Pass – but we lucked out with a fairly calm day and AMAZING colours… we definitely picked the right weekend to do this!

Sam and Brittany love vacationing in the Pass and knew of a few good spots I’ve never checked out before (I always joke about how I never explored until I moved away from the area!). I was very glad to make use of their expertise :) Brittany and Sam have such a quiet calm about them and are so comfortable around each other. I loved watching what a great match they are.

Coleman Winter Engagement Photography [Erik & Alena]

Coleman winter engagement photography

Though Erik and Alena are from Calgary, they are passionate about the mountains and want everything about their wedding to be based on that majestic landscape. We decided to start out with Coleman winter engagement photography as their first session, hoping for the heavy snow that is typical of February. Imagine our surprise when February rolled around with record highs! Luckily the Miner’s Path is tucked away enough with little sunlight during the winter and the creek was still completely frozen. With some careful angles we made it look like winter never really left!

Crowsnest Pass Winter Engagement Photography [Jena & Daniel]

Crowsnest Pass winter engagement photography

Jena and Daniel are getting married in Kananaskis next summer and I finally got to meet them in person for their engagement session. I love having a chance to do Crowsnest Pass winter engagement photography; the snow stays so thick all winter and the beautiful streams in the area turn such a gorgeous blue. I was thrilled when they wanted to go to Miner’s Path for the first part of their photos because it’s so pretty there this time of year. Jena was home from school for the weekend and it was a perfect time to get photos from a different season than their wedding will be. They are so ridiculously adorable… I can’t wait to see how amazing they will look when they aren’t pretending to enjoy being in freezing wind ;)
