Lethbridge Twins Candid Photo Session [Iker & Enara]

Lethbridge twins candid photo session

Abuelo Alfredo was visiting all the way from Spain, and this trip was his first time meeting his grandchildren. What an amazing trip! This Lethbridge twins candid photo session was so adorable with the kids playing with their abuelo. (We did try to get more posed photos, but the twins were NOT having it!)

We went to the Galt Museum for their family photoshoot so the kids and their abuelo could run around free and not worry about the cold and winter coats. They loved looking out the big windows together and playing tag, plus a lot of fun rolling around on the floor :)

I definitely got my exercise chasing them around, as did Alfredo and their mom!

golden hour family photos in Lethbridge

Heather’s family had a very non-wintery set of Christmas photos for two years in a row now! We were able to make use of a rare windless day for their Pavan Park warm winter photos. Braxton had just as much fun as last year, especially since I got him to do all kinds of action shots! He even insisted on wearing sneakers to the session in case I made him run (which I totally did). That kid knows what’s up!

Henderson Lake Winter Mini Session [Mandy & Chris]

Henderson Lake winter mini session

It was so great to see Mandy and Chris again at their Henderson Lake winter mini session! I hadn’t seen them since their wedding and they’ve since added to their family. The older boys really had their work cut out for them with wrangling their little brother, and we soon found a magical stick that convinced him to take photos.

We were lucky this year that their Christmas family photo actually got to have snow in it!

Writing On Stone Family Photos [Violet & Her Parents]

Writing On Stone family photos

Robbie and Vanessa were up for another family adventure after their maternity photos in Waterton. We met up for another trip a few months after their daughter Violet arrived, this time for Writing On Stone family photos. Vanessa grew up in the area so the provincial park is very special to her. The hoodoos are such a unique landscape that it definitely sets their photos apart from most family sessions!

We arrived early in the morning to beat the crowds, while the smoky sky that day kept away the summer heat. Hoodoos are definitely best photographed so it looks like no one else is there, like some foreign planet ;)

I got to hear the family’s full setlist of both consoling and enthusiastic children’s songs. That was all that made Violet excited! It was definitely easier to get her to smile with one of her parents singing behind me, seeing as how I didn’t know the songs (and she probably wouldn’t have been very happy with my singing voice anyhow).

Shannon Terrace Family Photos in Calgary [Melissa & Schuyler]

Shannon Terrace family photos in Calgary

I was pretty sad to learn that one of my favourite Lethbridge families was moving to Calgary. However, things still managed to align during their first year in their new home and we were able to schedule a session while I was passing through the city! Melissa suggested Fish Creek Park as a potential location and I got to work researching what would be the best spot in this large nature reserve. Once I found the beautiful forest backgrounds, I knew we had to do Shannon Terrace family photos!

This part of the park looks like a forest in the mountains. I was shocked that this existed right in Calgary. Everywhere we wandered we found huge trees, views of the creek, and fun fallen logs to climb on. The kids may be hitting age ranges where they have more disagreements with their siblings than affection, but they could all agree that the exploring was still fun to do together :)

Warm Autumn Afternoon Family Session [Bobbi-Jo & Ryan]

warm autumn afternoon family session in Lethbridge

Bobbi-Jo and Ryan celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary last year and decided that would be a great time to update their family photos! Like most families, they started spacing out regular photos once their babies turned into bigger kids, so it’s been a few years since I last saw them. I can’t believe I’ve been photographing this family since their oldest was a baby. How did the kids all get so big??

Their warm autumn afternoon family session was a bit of a miracle after we had to move their photos around several times trying to avoid the snow that was on its way. This gorgeous sunny session took place mere hours before the blizzard moved in!

It was wonderful to catch up with them again and the boys had so much fun having races and climbing on the bridge in Indian Battle Park.
