Lethbridge Autumn Pet Family Photos [Irene & Jed]

Lethbridge autumn pet family photos

Some dogs love eating couches and Cricket is no exception! When Irene and Jed added her to their family to be Finnegan’s sister, their beloved couch did not survive the new addition. They wanted to commemorate their couch in pictures before sending it away so we had a lovely autumn pet family photo session with them, the dogs, and the old furniture in their backyard. The dogs thought we were having a party and loved zooming around in between poses, but still listened perfectly when it was time to look at me.

After our time in the yard, we took them on an adventure to Lethbridge’s Pavan Park where they got to smell all kinds of other dogs :)

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 :)

Late Autumn Lethbridge Wedding [Trevor & Andrea]

Trevor & Andrea, late autumn Lethbridge wedding

It’s been quite a few years since I met them for his sister’s wedding, but I finally got to see Trevor’s family again when it was his turn to tie the knot! He and Andrea got married near Park Lake and had the whole family meet at the farm for photos. It was quite windy that day so we’re lucky no one blew away ;)

The farm has such beautiful, rustic spots for photos and I was thrilled to be able to shoot there again. The old barn is far enough away from everyone that Trevor and Andrea were able to have some romantic alone time (well, as romantic as it can be with two photographers spying on them!).

When we were finished at the farm, they headed to Lethbridge in the awesome old truck they borrowed. It very conveniently matched their wedding colors! Trevor and Andrea picked beautiful colors for late autumn Lethbridge wedding photos, choosing gray with bright orange accents.

We had fun with the bridal party at the Galt Museum, then they had a moment of not-so-fun when the truck wouldn’t start… but luckily it came through for them and we made it down to Pavan Park to take advantage of the autumn colors :)

Congratulations, Trevor & Andrea!

Pavan Park engagement photos

It was great to finally meet Heather and Garrett after our email exchanges, and I’m so excited for their Waterton wedding next summer! They are super cute and hilarious so we spent the whole time laughing through their Pavan Park engagement photos. We had beautiful golden light down in the river bottom (even though it’s starting to look like autumn, yikes!) and this couple was so easy to photograph.

I can’t wait to see them again next summer!

Pavan Park Autumn Couples Session [Lisa & Trent (with Coco!)]

Pavan Park Autumn Couples Session

Lisa and Trent decided to have a late autumn couples session done with their fur baby Coco in Pavan Park and I had such a great time with them. They are such genuinely nice people and were a joy to be around. I love seeing couples who are so perfect for each other like the two of them are.

Coco has soooo much energy and luckily they brought her favorite ball to keep her distracted throughout photos… all we needed to do to get Lisa and Trent on their own was throw the ball! Sometimes the best way to get Coco involved in a photo was to just let her photo bomb the pose, and she was pretty good at knowing exactly where to stand. By the end, her pace was noticeably slower and her tongue hung out a mile :)

Pavan Park Morning Family Photos

I’ve been doing Noah and Zoe’s photos each year since Zoe was born, but whenever we’d try putting the kids together, crying would usually ensue. This year things were almost magical and they actually loved being around each other, including hugs and kisses! What a difference just one more year makes :)

We headed to Pavan Park for their morning family photos in the autumn, and though it was a little chilly, the touches of sunlight were gorgeous and we just made sure hands stayed in pockets in between photos.

It’s so fun seeing them grow up and they are such a cute family, so I’m always so delighted to get to work with them again.
