Tecumseh Road Family Photos [Dee & Rich]

Tecumseh Road family photos

Now that’s a view! When I arrived at their home, I wasn’t at all surprised why Dee and Rich decided to use their Christmas gift from their daughters for Tecumseh Road family photos in their own backyard. Their patio area had a perfect view of the mountain range and the river just past the highway in the Crowsnest Pass. They also had a cute little forest that hugged all the homes in their neighbourhood. We almost did this session in the winter but I’m so glad they waited, because the fresh spring green colour in the trees contrasted so nicely against the mountain vistas.

We included the girls’ partners in lots of the photos, but also focused on the original crew, including recreating a photo Dee had of the girls when they were young. Everyone had a great time, especially their dogs once they got to join in on the excitement!

Pavan Park Spring Grad Photos [Teddy & His Family]

Pavan Park spring grad photos

Graduations may still have been smaller in scale for another year in a row, but there’s nothing in the way of still having a fun session to celebrate! Teddy had his Pavan Park spring grad photos with his parents and brother right after all the green came out in the river bottom. Pavan Park was gorgeous that evening. Even the new, loud swarms of bugs left us alone.

This family has such great energy together and made each other laugh through the whole session.

Teddy and his younger brother love mountain biking, so they brought their bikes along to use in the photos. This was the first time either of them had tried biking in formal wear, and it went surprisingly well! The true question is whether that will be the last time they bike in suits. :)

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!

Lethbridge Indoor Winter Family Session [Gord & Kathy]

Lethbridge indoor winter family session

With some careful schedule planning, Gord and Kathy were able to get all three of their kid’s families to celebrate Christmas together, and squeeze in a Lethbridge indoor winter family session at the same time. All of their grandchildren are getting quite big so they were definitely overdue for some photos together!

This set of cousins has such a great time together and spent every moment they could between photos playing with each other and their grandparents (the parents were a little forgotten about). To keep up the fun, the session ended with a flossing dance off (mostly between the adults).

p.s. A huuuuuge thank you to Vicky at Honkers Pub for letting us use The Nest Event Space when it was below -20C and everything else was closed for Christmas.

Pavan Park Warm Winter Photos [Braxton, Heather & Bradly]

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!

Late Autumn Extended Family Photos [Shirley & Richard]

late autumn extended family photos

It was such a great year for families finally being able to get together, and that meant many opportunities to photograph multiple generations. Shirley and Richard managed to get a whopping FOUR generations together for their late autumn extended family photos in Lethbridge’s river bottom.

We had such a perfect golden hour while the weather was still warm at the end of fall. It gave the little kids a perfect opportunity to run around on adventures between photos, and give their dads chasing them some exercise.
