Bayshore Inn Outdoor Yard Ceremony [Peter & Monika]

Monika and Peter, Bayshore Inn outdoor yard ceremony

Monika and Peter love the outdoors so it was no surprise that Waterton was the perfect fit for their wedding. Their Bayshore Inn outdoor yard ceremony took place in such gorgeous weather with their closest friends and family in attendance. All day they were surrounded by so much love!

They subtly worked a couple of their geeky interests into the wedding with superhero socks, cufflinks, and even underwear, plus a Star Wars wedding band. The rest of their theme had a romantic look with subdued colors and beautiful white wild flowers.

Videography that day was provided by their adorable dog Brian. I’m not sure they’ll be hiring him again after he missed part of their ceremony by rolling upside down ;)

I loved watching Monika and Peter interact with each other. They are so comfortable together and naturally melted into each other’s arms for every photo.

Congratulations, Peter and Monika!

SpringBreak Flower Farm Wedding [Travis & Stephanie]

Travis & Stephanie, SpringBreak Flower Farm Wedding

When Stephanie and I rode the school bus together many years ago, I never imagined I’d one day be rolling around in the damp grass photographing her wedding! Her and Travis had a gorgeous SpringBreak Flower Farm wedding and though their ceremony was forced inside from the threat of rain, we were lucky to be able to do all their photos outside. We were especially lucky seeing as how the day before there were tornado warnings!

It was amazing watching the interactions they had with their friends and family as they got ready for the day. I can’t count the number of times people almost broke out in tears, but always managed to catch themselves just in time not to wreck their makeup ;)

One very special part of the day was the inclusion of their dogs (their babies, of course!) Lucky and Luka. The dogs even had a special part in the ceremony as they walked down the aisle inside of SpringBreak garden centre and stood alongside the wedding party.

This was such a happy day for them and their wedding party was so energetic and happy, so they never had a chance to stop laughing.

Congratulations, Travis and Stephanie!

Lethbridge late spring maternity photos

I’m so excited to see Ross and Erin’s family growing! After knowing them for many years and photographing their wedding, I’ve come to know them as super sweet people with great senses of humour and know they will make amazing parents.

They brought along their adorable dog Lazer for their late spring maternity photos at Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge and I can already tell he’s going to make a great big brother ;) It was such a beautiful evening for photos and almost felt like summer.

Indian Battle Park Morning Children’s Portraits [Audrey]

Indian Battle Park morning children's portraits

Each time I take photos of Audrey, I hardly recognize her from the last time! She has grown so much in the last two years and this time around has added a puppy friend to her life. This was actually my second time working with Minnie because she helped us out at Halloween with our Windy City Canine Rescue, and just a short time after that, Audrey’s family adopted her.

Audrey was such a sweetheart for her Indian Battle Park morning children’s portraits and had such a fun time playing with and feeding snacks to Minnie.

Lethbridge Children’s Sister Portraits [Kennedy & Kaia]

Lethbridge children's sister portraits

Kennedy and Kaia’s mom surprised their dad with children’s sister portraits of the girls for his Christmas present. While he was briefly out of town, the girls and their faithful dogs visited me at the University of Lethbridge lake. Kaia is still a little too young to understand the concept of secrets so we had a backup story of me being a friend practising photos to avoid any spoiling!

The last time I photographed the family was before Kennedy could walk on her own so it was incredible to see how much they have grown! Even the dogs, Jake and Digger, are much more white than they were last time, though they still have the full energy of golden retrievers. We made sure to focus on their senior dog Digger who is getting quite up there in years so they can have some beautiful photos of him.

Captain America Themed Newborn Photos [Oliver]

Captain America themed newborn photos in Lethbridge

Oliver has arrived! Kallie and Wallie have the best comic book store connections for super hero merchandise and chose to go with Captain America themed newborn photos for Oliver’s first session. Not only were his clothes and toys on theme, but their d├ęcor and own clothing choices were perfect compliments!

Oliver is really chill and laid back so far. Other than an occasional eye peering at us, he slept through most of the session and was pretty pleased about his naked time. I love seeing how excited his mom and dad are about him!
