Spring Lilac Family Photos [Sarah, Kyle, & the Kids]

spring lilac family photos

Our spring lilac family photos finally happened! Sarah was super stoked to make use of the pretty purple flowers for their spring blossom mini-session and even did the location scouting for me. Right when it was time for photos, a HUGE storm came in – our first hail and lightning storm of the season!

We rescheduled for the week after and crossed our fingers – both for the weather and that the lilacs would hold out! As photo time approached, the forecast didn’t look good. Sarah and I strategically texted back and forth throughout the day and rushed out to do photos a little earlier than planned. Success! Indian Battle Park was still full of lilacs and the day was lovely, although a little chillier than we had gotten used to.

Sarah and Kyle are some of the loveliest people I know from my university days so it’s always great to catch up with them again. The last time we did photos, Josephine was a lot shorter, and Levon was barely standing on his own! They now giggle wildly at each other and love exploring the nature reserve as a family.

Spring Blossom Family Session [Jennifer, David, & The Kids]

spring blossom family session

Each time I photograph Jennifer and David’s family, it seems to increase by one! This last year we welcomed Adelyn into their spring blossom family session. Big sister Kalina had already honed her baby sibling holding skills the year before with Erwin, and it was a little easier this time after a whole year of growing taller! Erwin loved hanging out with his sister and even wanted to be included when it wasn’t his turn for a photo.

Their family was massively taken out for a while with the kids passing colds back and forth to each other, so we just about missed the spring blossoms but caught the last of them just in time! (The kids survived their session thanks to lots of goop being wiped out of eyes between shots.) After being stuck at home for a week, they were all so excited to be outside playing! Luckily photos hide the fact that most of them lost their voices ;)

Children and Pet Photography in Lethbridge [Jacey and Her Dogs]

children and pet photography in Lethbridge

Jacey’s early Christmas gift from her parents was a pet session with her dogs, Stella and Gia. Stella, the tan coloured dog, happens to be Gia’s mother. Despite the age difference, Gia was the one on her best behaviour while Stella had the excitement of a puppy exploring Aperture Part in west Lethbridge.

We started out with more classic posed portraits while we still had the dogs’ attention. Once our safe photos were finished, it was time for action shots! Each dog has her own set of special tricks (Stella’s “gopher” pose and Gia’s dancing were the cutest from each). Jacey’s parents described her as “the dog whisperer” and she was able to get the dogs to do everything we needed for photos!

At the end of the session, both dogs got to let loose with rolling in the leaves and chasing sticks. They did so great considering how crazy the wind was that day. The only signs of it were in their wind-swept ears!

Late Autumn Pavan Park Photos [Danyel & Kim’s Family]

late autumn Pavan Park photos

Better late than never! Danyel and Kim had to postpone their annual family photos because of all the crazy weather this year. We finally got lucky with late autumn Pavan Park photos. Everything dried out enough that it looked mostly like fall again for a day!

The kids were great sports putting up with the cold temperatures. By the end of the portrait session, they had mastered the art of removing winter coats, smiling, and then quickly putting them back on.

It was great to catch up with Danyel and Kim again after their wedding a few years ago and meet their cute kids!

60th Birthday Celebration Family Photos in Lethbridge [Patty & John]

60th birthday celebration family photos

When both parents turn the big six-oh in the same year, you throw a party! Patty and John had their three generations come together for their 60th birthday celebration family photos. I was so excited to return to their beautiful farm for this session. All of their grandchildren had a great time playing together, with the adults, and on the swings (my favourite part every time!). We finished the session with some super fun props… they asked me if they would be too cheesy, and I insisted it was just the type of cheese I love ;)

University of Lethbridge Indoor Grandparents Photo Session [Bob & Linda]

University of Lethbridge indoor grandparents photo session

It’s a big deal when Bob and Linda come to visit! These sweet grandparents live in northern Canada, but their grandson and his family and sister are in Lethbridge while he completes his degree. Bob and Linda planned a special trip to see their great grandchildren and have a family photo session while they were in the city.

We picked the University of Lethbridge as our backdrop both because of the wind and because the location is meaningful while Ken goes to school there. (Usually my clients get a little worried about getting lost on campus, but Ken easily knew his way around!) We explored the new Science Commons building and the kids loved all the elevator rides!

Bob’s great grandson is named after him, so he brought along special matching embroidered hats for the two of them to wear. I’m only disappointed the elder Bob didn’t have bright green hair like his great grandson ;)
