Shi Chi Go San photos at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden in Lethbridge

Children’s sized kimonos get twice as cute when it is for twins! Lear and Noah’s family came to visit Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden in Lethbridge for their Shi Chi Go San photos just before the garden closed for the autumn season.

From Britannica:

Shichi-go-san, (Japanese: “Seven-Five-Three”), one of the most important festivals for Japanese children, observed annually on November 15. On this date girls of three and seven years of age and boys of five years of age are taken by their parents to the Shinto shrine of their tutelary deity to offer thanks for having reached their respective ages and to invoke blessings for the future.

The boys had gorgeous nearly matching kimonos and especially loved the ceremonial swords they got to carry. Nikka Yuko was such a perfect location for this and we caught the early fall colours in the garden.

Crowsnest Pass Autumn Family Photos [Charlie & His Family]

Crowsnest Pass autumn family photos

There is way too much cute in this photoshoot! Charlie never stopped grinning during his Crowsnest Pass autumn family photos. He loved giving his dog Riley hugs, being swung around by his parents, and playing with his grandpa and grandma in the forest along the Miner’s Path in Coleman.

We hiked along the path towards the creek and bridge, finding Charlie lots of rocks and logs to climb on. His grandparents were so great for encouraging him along his adventures. It probably felt more like a one hour play time than a photoshoot to him!

Lethbridge River Bottom Fall Family Photos [Avery, Ashley & Cody]

Lethbridge river bottom fall family photos

Cody and Ashley with their daughter Avery had such a beautiful day for their Lethbridge river bottom fall family photos. Everything was perfect for climbing logs and twirling around in the leaves, and the golden colours in Indian Battle Park were amazing! The family did such a good job coordinating their clothing colours just from raiding their closets and using what they already had.

Avery was so creative with coming up with silly faces and poses, that I definitely preferred those to her just smiling at the camera! Her mom and dad were happy to take her posing suggestions ;)

autumn mother son photos in Lethbridge

Raylan got a special photoshoot all to himself with his mom! Kenzie set up their autumn mother son photos on one of the most beautiful days we had last fall. Right from the beginning of the session, Raylan was one of the most smiley kids I’ve ever photographed! While he was usually happiest playing games or being swung around, he also had such sweet grins when he cuddled close to his mom.

Lethbridge Autumn Family Photos With Twins [Andrea & Blake]

Lethbridge autumn family photos with twins

Blake & Andrea wanted to celebrate their family being “complete” with the arrival of their twins, who were just shy of one year old for their photos. We did these family photos with twins in the Helen Schuler Nature Reserve on a warm autumn afternoon with lots of vibrant colours. Their big sister Ana especially had a blast during photos. The girl is a total extrovert and had tons of stories to tell me! I didn’t want all the focus to be on the twins and her be left out, so she got lots of time to twirl and dance, and throw leaves in the air.

Indian Battle Park autumn extended family photos

Jen and Tim got all of their adult kids and grandchildren together for three generations of extended family photos. We hit the perfect date in autumn where the first batch of leaves in Indian Battle Park had turned orange, which doesn’t last for very long! They brought along the family dog Cooper, and their son and his partner even brought along their adventure cat!

Most of the session turned into an hour of playing for their two grandkids who were doted on by everyone there :)
