Barnwell Country Portrait Session [Tayler]

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Barnwell country portrait photography

I loved working with Tayler again this year for another Barnwell country portrait session with her and all of her adorable animals. Tayler has a huge passion for dance, but I think she’s at her most natural when she’s snuggling her cats, grooming her horses, or rounding up her energetic dogs. Her love of animals is really admirable.

I went out to her family’s place again and we found all new spots from last time for her photos. It’s so beautiful there and they have so much character with their vintage trucks and colorful barns. Tayler was gorgeous and was so easy to photograph again :)

Beautiful Lethbridge Violin Portraits [Julianna]

Lethbridge violin portraits

It comes as no surprise with my passion for music that I love photographing musicians with their instruments! Julianna was prepping for her graduation recital and needed some photos with her violin, so we headed down to the river bottom in Lethbridge to capture some violin portraits. Her mom was also pretty excited to get some new photos of her daughter! ;)

Julianna was so photogenic (look at that smile!) and chose great outfits to fit with the golden early spring colors in Indian Battle Park. The subdued colors really accented the richness of the violin’s wood!

Spring Apple Blossom Portraits in Lethbridge [Katt]

spring apple blossom portraits in Lethbridge with Katt Panic

As soon as the beautiful pink spring apple blossoms appeared, I quickly called up Katt Panic (the amazing local makeup artist) for some portraits. Between Katt’s trademark pink hair and her gorgeous pink cherry blossom arm tattoo, she was a perfect fit to stick up in the blooming trees! Katt of course did her own hair and makeup (even if the wind fought the look she aimed for) and was a wonderful model. It was great to finally get her in front of the camera instead of only doing behind the scenes work!

Drunken Sailor fashion photo shoot

This was such a fun project to be a part of! Drunken Sailor, which is hands down one of the best and most unique stores in Lethbridge, was putting together a magazine editorial with some of their everyday wearable looks and I was able to take part in their fashion photo shoot. Our gorgeous models were given fabulous pinup hair and makeup from Catwalk Salon and Katt Panic, a perfect compliment for the vintage inspired clothing they were modeling.

Lethbridge Graduation Photos [Chantal Graduates!]

Lethbridge graduation photos, girl with balloons

Chantal finished her nursing diploma and wanted to celebrate with some super fun photos with her family on her convocation weekend, so we headed out to Indian Battle Park for her Lethbridge graduation photos. The only problem was that the wind that day had insane gusts and Lethbridge was covered in a giant dust cloud! Aside from some intense balloon wrangling and averting our faces the few times we were pelted with rocks, I think we excellently pulled through! Chantal had some adorable motion in her hair (though Chantal is always adorable!) and the balloon situation gave us a LOT to laugh about. :)

Congratulations on your convocation, Chantal! (more…)

Goddess of the Woods [Personal Project with Thea]

Goddess of the Woods, Lethbridge personal creative photo project

I was so happy to finally do this conceptual photoshoot after having the idea building up for it since last autumn! No one else could have been my goddess of the woods – or maybe she’s a fairy :) – but Thea and she totally rocked the role.

As usual, Katt perfectly captured the concept I had for makeup and did an amazing job!
