Best of 2018 – A Year of Portraits from Photography by Tanya Plonka

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

best Lethbridge portrait photography of 2018

Part 2 of the year in review features the portrait side of things! This year marked a few firsts, including my first bunny session and my first family dressed in Batman costumes. I had so much fun with every group I worked with. Thank you for letting me bring your personalities out in your photo sessions!

This year for portraits I stayed pretty local in Lethbridge, but also took a few special trips to the Crowsnest Pass, Waterton, Claresholm, and Magrath. The yearend marks a very special occasion – the 10th anniversary of when I started my business! So many of the people in these photos have been with me for years and I couldn’t have made it this far without their love and support.

I hope you enjoy looking through our best portraits of 2018 as much as I liked choosing them!

Lethbridge Indoor Family Newborn Session [Arya]

Lethbridge indoor family newborn session

After the blizzard left mountains of fresh snow outside, Arya stayed warm and toasty in her new home for her Lethbridge indoor family newborn session. She was wide awake the whole time but totally fine with any of the modelling we made her do! Her big sister Evelyn was so excited for their first photoshoot together and brought along her biggest grin. Both girls are so sweet and their mom and dad are so happy to see their family grow.

Everyone dressed in blue to match the colors in their new home, which made all the blue eyes really pop!

Fort Macleod newborn family photos

At just under a month old, Cashton got in front of the camera for his Fort Macleod newborn family photos with his parents, brothers, and adorable dog Django in the River Valley Wilderness Park. His family is so in love with him that everyone was begging for a chance to hold him in the photos (with the exception of Django). It was a beautiful day for doing outdoor newborn pictures and Cashton was on his best behaviour for his very first photoshoot.

Lethbridge in home newborn photo session

Branegan arrived right on schedule for his family just before Christmas! They celebrated his arrival with an in home newborn photo session while the other kids were out at school. Branegan was so laid back during photos and even though he didn’t really sleep through the session, he trusted us enough to rest his eyes, as long as we kept our promise not to change him. He was happiest every moment he got to snuggle with his mom and dad.

Lethbridge four generation newborn photos

Zenaya was welcomed into the world by a line of strong women and her arrival celebrated with Lethbridge four generation newborn photos. Her mom, grandmother, and great grandmother all took part in her photo session and wrapped her in traditional blankets while she was happy to receive the snuggles! Zenaya did amazing at her session, drifting in and out of sleep and never making a fuss. Her mom was the only victim and received a poop explosion during bare bum time!

Crowsnest Pass Outdoor Newborn Session [Parker]

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Crowsnest Pass outdoor newborn session

It was lovely to meet brand new Parker for his Crowsnest Pass outdoor newborn session at the Miner’s Path in Coleman. We went back to the same location where his mom and dad did their maternity photos and got to capture the changing of the seasons as they waited for his arrival.

Parker’s parents are so in love with him and can’t stop showering him with kisses. He loved hanging out with them in the forest for the morning and even though we were all eaten by mosquitoes, he was lucky and they left him alone! He was so mellow about the whole experience. Parker’s only complaint was that he had to start out in little animal booties and he definitely prefers to be barefoot and feel nature ;)
