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!

Mountain Summer Wedding [Drew and Alyssa]

Drew and Alyssa, mountain Alberta summer wedding photos

Alyssa and Drew had such a beautiful wedding in Lethbridge surrounded by so much love from their families.

The couple originally wanted a mountain summer wedding but with so many relatives who couldn’t make the trip, they decided to keep the party in Lethbridge and just drive out to the mountains for their portraits in the afternoon. After a beautiful drive out to the Crowsnest Pass, Drew and Alyssa got to spend time in the forest and under the mountains, giving them the landscapes they love so much.

Alyssa is a very talented country singer so it was a natural fit for their wedding to have country-inspired themes and involve lots of music! Alyssa even performed at her own reception, which was such a fun touch. I’m so glad we could bring one of her guitars out for photos!

Congratulations, Drew & Alyssa!

Jim & Tennille, Crowsnest Pass wedding photos

Tennille and Jim’s wedding was a very special one for me, not only because it was held in my home town, but because I have known Tennille since we were in grade 2! The day was spent with people I’ve known most of my life so everyone felt like family. Tennille and Jim are such a great match for each other and I love seeing them together with their daughter Ava.

They held their ceremony at the Springbreak Garden Centre in Hillcrest, and luckily it was just warm enough to have it outside as they originally planned. It was so beautiful with the mountains in the background and the leaves changing color. Ava totally stole the show with all the peekaboo she played with Tennille’s dress during the ceremony.

We had such a great time at their reception and it was wonderful to catch up and dance with everyone! Andrea at Elegant Weddings and Events did a great job organizing everything.

Congratulations, Tennille and Jim! (more…)

CJ, Tara, and Shane | Crowsnest Pass Family Photos

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

After a couple solid days of rain, the clouds lifted just in time for little CJ to get some family photos done! I met up with Shane, Tara, and CJ, along with their little “foxy” dog Nikko by the river in Hillcrest. It was such a beautiful spot, I wish I could do so many more photos there! CJ really wanted to display her independence, but we found a few tricks to keep her interested in the photo session. (more…)
