Dia de los Muertos [Tuezday Sugar Skull Photos]

sugar skull, Dia de los Muertos photos in Lethbridge

As a personal project before Halloween, I recruited model Tuezday Kabel & makeup artist Jill Renner for a Día de los Muertos themed photoshoot with sugar skull face painting. These ladies rocked it! We coordinated the skull paint with the autumn colors outside and found the most colorful splashes we could in Indian Battle Park.

Lethbridge Outdoor Fall Portraiture [Mackenzie]

Lethbridge outdoor fall portraiture

Mackenzie rocked these photos! We had such amazing saturated colors during the first round of autumn leaf changes here in Lethbridge and I was so eager to capture them in some outdoor fall portraiture. Mackenzie was a perfect model, especially since her favorite dress color complemented the foliage so perfectly. It was awesome to catch up with her since she just moved back to Lethbridge and she was such a dream to work with!

Terrifying Tami, the Scary Clown [Personal Project]

Terrifying Tami, scary clown photos

It’s my favorite time of year, Halloween season! Not much is scarier than a creepy clown (at least in my opinion), so I felt some scary clown photos were in order this year!

When I saw Tami do a cartwheel at a previous modeling collaboration, I knew we had to do something creepy and weird, and the clown thing just fell into place. With Katt Panic’s magic touch, Tami transformed into a clown much scarier than I could have imagined. (I loved Tami’s reaction when we finally showed her the finished face!) I love that Tami has such colorful hair as it was the perfect touch to complete the look.

Casa Grad Session [Hanna]

CASA Grad Session

Hanna was such a treat to work with! We had her Casa grad session on a beautiful summer evening and lucked out with no rain so we could also go outside. She had such a stunning, perfectly fitting white gown, as well as a classy scarf to change things up (complete with a gorgeous brooch from her aunt). Hanna is so charismatic and has such a wonderful huge laugh, making her super easy to photograph.

Casa made the perfect backdrop for the beginning of her photos. The warm colors there really made her dress pop and it looked fantastic for the Audrey Hepburn, classic vibe she loves. Galt Gardens, conveniently across the street, had such beautiful sunlight by the time we went outside!

Jenni on Film [Personal Project]

Lethbridge film photography portrait session

Finally, a new film photography session! I started trying to use up my film two years ago with Beth, and somehow the time got away from me! This means the film was expired by an extra two years and thanks to my camera eating the first roll of film, I ended up switching to 800 ISO. Oh, the grain! I’ve toned it down a bit after scanning but the age of the film is starting to show. Maybe by the next session I do like this we’ll start seeing some awesome color distortion :)

My model this time was Jenni. I’ve danced with her for a few years now and thought her tribal bellydance outfit and steampunk costume would be awesome to capture with film. We timed things perfectly to get the tail end of the canola fields being in season in Lethbridge and I’m so happy with how the film captured the colors. Jenni did a great job and I so appreciate her patience when the first roll of film died on us.

Natural Lethbridge headshots

Joanne was in need of a new photo for her company’s website and wanted a more natural look to her headshots, so we went out for a some outdoor portraits in downtown Lethbridge. Joanne was great in front of the camera and I loved her clothing choices!
