Edmonton Pioneers Cabin Wedding [Francine & Clayton]

September 24th, 2020

Francine & Clayton, Edmonton Pioneers Cabin Wedding

Francine and Clayton are such an amazing couple for how easily they rolled with the changes thrown their way! Their wedding was originally planned for Castle Mountain Resort, but once the event size and distancing rules started being announced, they decided to scale back and keep their wedding small and local to them. That meant a roadtrip was in store for us! Their new plan of an Edmonton Pioneers Cabin wedding turned out beautifully and they were able to keep all of the important parts of their day.

It was so cute seeing how nervous each of them were while they got ready, but that soon melted away once they saw each other at their ceremony. We explored along the edge of Nellie McClung Park for their portraits and didn’t have to go far to get the Edmonton cityscape in the background.

With the size of the venue, they were able to have the fun reception they had always wanted with lots of space for dancing.

Congratulations, Francine and Clayton!

Virtual Assistant Branding Session [Brooke from Out of Sight Online]

September 22nd, 2020

virtual assistant branding session

For this virtual assistant branding session, it was all about the woman behind the business! Brooke is the owner of Out of Sight Online and for this photoshoot we focused on her and her personality she brings to her clients.

Brooke used to be a general purpose virtual assistant but has recently shifted her business to focus primarily on podcasters. This was where she found her passion for what she does and her favourite clients!

The great thing about being a virtual assistant is the ability to work from anywhere (which usually means at home), but this also meant Brooke didn’t have a proper “office” space for us to use for her at work images. For that we turned to Jonny Bean Coffee in Lethbridge, whose bright and modern space was perfect for Brooke’s brand. (Plus we got to have tasty drinks during that part of the session.)

For Brooke’s branding photos we wanted to show that she gets things done, is approachable, and offers a very one on one service. I kept everything bright and airy while pulling in the blue and gold accent colours from her website and logo, while Brooke found a perfect wardrobe to match.

Coaldale Backyard Family Photos… with a Grad! [Anita & Darcy]

September 17th, 2020

Coaldale backyard family photos

When Anita called me to book her Coaldale backyard family photos, she was in a hurry. One of her sons was ready to travel back to Germany the moment flights reopened and one son had just graduated high school but missed out on the big ceremony. To keep her session easy for the boys to prepare for and make it more personal, I visited them in their beautiful backyard.

We spent the first half of the session focusing on the family, and the second half was dedicated to Steve’s grad photos. Luckily he had been able to borrow a cap and gown from his school, but I think the best photos were of him rocking his suit. You could tell he felt extra confident in it. It definitely “suited” him (sorry I will see myself out).

High Level Bridge Multi-Generation Family Photos [Chris & Richard]

High Level Bridge multi-generation family photos in Lethbridge

Chris and Richard planned for High Level Bridge multi-generation family photos while their family was visiting for the weekend. These photos were long overdue since it had been 13 years since their last family session!

Many family members have moved away from Lethbridge, but still have a fondness for the city’s biggest landmark. The river bottom along the Lethbridge Viaduct was therefore the best place to choose for photos.

Their family came prepared with lots of fun props, including the big picture frame they could use to show off their children and grandkids!

Coaldale Newborn Session [Baby Adelita & Her Family]

Coaldale newborn session

Baby Adelita has arrived! (Which means Groot the dog is a big brother now!) I got to meet her at her Coaldale newborn session and loved seeing how happy her parents are every time they look at her. Adelita was used to company by now because her grandmother was visiting to help the first time parents out.

Aperture Park Maternity Session in Lethbridge [Kelsie & Scott]

September 8th, 2020

Aperture Park maternity session

I was so excited to hear from Kelsie and Scott a few years after their wedding when they were expecting their first baby! We patiently waited through a few snow-postponements for their Aperture Park maternity session. Kelsie had picked out such a vibrant green dress to wear and didn’t want to lose it by bundling up in winter gear!

They brought along their fur baby Groot, who had a blast at the park. Despite their best efforts to run off his energy earlier that day, the new smells were just too exciting! Groot, however, was on his best behaviour and paused from bouncing around any time he was needed for a photo.
