Waterton Winter Maternity Session [Vanessa & Robbie]

February 25th, 2021

Waterton winter maternity session

I love seeing my past wedding clients growing their families! Vanessa and Robbie made a day trip down for their Waterton winter maternity session. This was one of the rare times I got to photograph snow this winter, so I appreciated it despite the freezing temperatures! Vanessa herself was super brave to strip down to her dress and no coat a few times. It helped that they came prepared with mochas to warm up on!

We adventured through what was open in the park. Luckily we were able to access nearly everything since Waterton didn’t yet have snow up to the rooftops! We set up a little mocha picnic on one of the snowy trails and confused a few hikers.

River Bottom Baby Photos in Lethbridge [Xavier]

February 17th, 2021

Lethbridge river bottom baby photos

Xavier arrived right in the heart of social distancing so I had to wait a few extra weeks to meet him. By that point he was still little enough to fit in my basket! We waited for a beautiful summer evening for his Lethbridge river bottom baby photos.

Xavier started out his session great, arriving completely passed out. He wasn’t about to let us off easy though! He quickly woke up and made sure we knew about his displeasure with having a photoshoot. He made his parents really work for it and after ample swinging and bouncing he was ready to resume. Plus it helped that we tricked him into photos between each swing in their arms ;)

Couples Boudoir Session in Lethbridge [R & S]

February 9th, 2021

Couples Boudoir Session in Lethbridge

R & S had just finished a major bedroom redecoration in their home and wanted some sexy but personal artwork to add to their walls. A couples boudoir session in that very same room was the perfect fit!

Their bedroom made use of a bold white, black, and red colour scheme, so they picked out a wardrobe to match. Their passion for each other was apparent from the beginning of the session. One thing I love about couples boudoir is how much it helps soothe the initial nerves to have someone you know and trust there, especially when that person can help you adjust your lingerie!

Snowy River Bottom Family Photos [Henriet, John, & Eric]

While I wish the fall colours could last forever, they look so pretty when we get early snow along with them! Henriet and John got to make use of the first snowfall of the season for their snowy river bottom family photos. John pointed out that their autumn family photos on Christmas cards would look a lot different than everyone else’s!

Eric had a great time in the snow, even if he thought I was totally not funny. (Luckily his mom behind me worked for getting smiles!)

This session was a thoughtful gift from John’s sister, who was invited to stay with them when certain family members needed more space for COVID safety this year. I think she was just as excited to see these photos of her nephew as his parents were!

40th Anniversary Family Photos in Lethbridge [Barbara & Larry]

40th anniversary family photos in Lethbridge

What’s the best way to celebrate 40 years of marriage? Barbara and Larry chose to celebrate by telling their kids they were making a one hour detour before dinner to do 40th anniversary family photos!

Barbara has seen many couple start their lives together in her time as a marriage officiant, so it was wonderful to see her celebrate her own marriage! I’m so grateful to constantly be included in their family’s milestones for photos.

This session was lots of fun now their grandson is old enough to pose and make silly faces on command, though I think his uncle was even more of a ham in front of the camera! We spent this warm evening down in Lethbridge’s river bottom, and even got to visit some goats at the end.

Newborn Puppy Photos in Lethbridge [Siberian Husky Puppies]

Lethbridge newborn puppy photos

I have been wanting to give newborn puppy photos the human baby treatment forever, so when I found out Tayler’s Siberian Husky Winter was about to have babies, I was so ready for it!

Winter had a litter of seven adorable puppies. I had to wait until they were just big enough that they looked more like dogs and so their eyes wouldn’t be hurt by the flashes, then brought all my baby posing props over for an adorable photoshoot.

The puppies are still at the super sleepy age, but a few were starting to get very rambunctious (if you’re wondering why some photos have only 6 sleeping puppies out of 7). They are all so sweet and soft and it was hard to go home without one at the end!
