six month baby photos in Lethbridge

Ostara got all dressed up for her six month baby photos with a special flower crown designed by BLOOMdiggity. We did the photos down in Indian Battle Park where the bright colours in her crown really popped against the lush spring greens. Ostara loved getting hugs and kisses from her mom and dad. She totally embraced being adorned in a crown!

Lethbridge nature center family photos

Serena and Dave’s family took a break from their busy schedules to update their personal photography collection. We met on a warm summer evening for their Lethbridge nature center family photos. They were a blast to work with when every few minutes, at least one of them would burst into being silly!

Outdoor Lethbridge Newborn Photos [Addison & Her Parents]

July 23rd, 2020

outdoor Lethbridge newborn photos

The summer of outdoor Lethbridge newborn photos was off to a great start with the first babies who arrived post-lockdown. Addison’s aunt and uncle bought her this session as a gift before she was born and I got to spend a warm evening out in nature with her and her mom and dad.

Under normal circumstances I love doing newborn photos outdoors anyhow when it’s warm, even if it’s a little less convenient than being in the baby’s home. I think that chilling out in a basket in the forest is pretty adorable ;)

Addison was not pleased about being set down for very long, so we got lots of great photos of her being snuggled by her mom and dad. Anytime she could hold onto their sleeves or look at them, she was instantly calmer and felt safe.

She watched us carefully for the first part of photos and showed off her beautiful big eyes, then finally passed out after enough feedings and cuddles.

Lethbridge summer family photos

When Janet and Alvin celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, their children gifted them a photo session for Indian Battle Park family portraits. It was the perfect time to update their photos while each of their children’s families were back in Lethbridge.

Their family is adorable and cares for each other so much. With each hugging embrace for photos came huge smiles from everyone involved. Alvin and Janet themselves snuggle and grin like newlyweds even after 40 years!

Dwell Urban Venue Wedding Photography [Kit & Tristian]

July 16th, 2020

Kit & Tristian, Dwell Urban Venue Wedding

Kit and Tristian managed to keep their wedding almost exactly as planned, other than having guests sit a little farther apart than they normally would! Their Dwell Urban Venue wedding was full of emotion and huge smiles (and social distancing).

Dwell was where Kit had originally wanted to propose to Tristian, but unfortunately it hadn’t been available for booking that day. It was therefore an obvious choice to be their wedding venue and totally matched the vibe of their wedding. After their morning ceremony, their guests were served treats while we took the couple to the Lethbridge river bottom for photos.

I had so many great opportunities to get adorable sneaky photos of Tristian and Kit. Anytime they thought they weren’t being photographed, they would continue holding hands, laughing together, or even trying out dance moves! I am so grateful to have followed them in this journey from proposal to union and to have seen their bond grow stronger in that time.

Congratulations, Kit & Tristian!

Lethbridge Research Centre Family Photos [Dan & Sheila]

Lethbridge Research Centre family photos

Dan and Sheila were gifted a portrait session for Christmas and waited until we had gorgeous weather and their granddaughters were visiting. Wanting something a little off the beaten path for the city, we decided on Lethbridge Research Centre family photos. The centre’s Fairfield Gardens are one of my favourite and most under-utilized locations here so I was thrilled when Dan was the one to suggest it!

The family made their session so much fun by constantly goofing around together, teasing each other behind the camera, and not being afraid to roll around with Aspen the dog on the ground. Aspen was quite the show stealer with his energetic antics and the team work from the family that it took to have him hold still for only a few photos at a time.

Unfortunately Aspen unexpectedly fell ill not long after this photo session so this post is in his memory. I’m so thankful we were able to get these amazing moments of him with his family.
