Lethbridge birthday family reunion

Steva celebrated turning 90 in a very special way with a combination birthday family reunion. With family members coming from out of town, everyone was able to reunite to celebrate this special lady’s momentous birthday.

The family all joined me in Indian Battle Park on this beautiful evening, and we took the opportunity to photograph each individual family as well as everyone together. Four generations got together for this birthday family reunion. Steva was able to get cute photos with her and all of her great grandchildren together.

Happy birthday, Steva!

Lethbridge river bottom family photography

Anna and John managed to get their whole family together for one weekend and celebrated the rare occurance with Lethbridge river bottom family photography. John received the VIP treatment as he had recently injured his foot and was wheeled from location to location by his grandchildren. All of the kids loved playing together and being able to spend time with their cousins, while the aunts and uncles taught the kids silly nicknames for each other. I was so happy we were able to organize everyone at the last minute for photos in Indian Battle Park!

Multi-Generation Photos in West Lethbridge [Debbie & Larry]

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

multi-generation photos

It’s been nearly 7 years since Larry and Debbie rounded up the kids for family photos, so a lot has changed since then! The biggest change is that “little” Luca went from being a giggly toddler to a talkative big kid. Plus, a whole bunch of doggies have been added to the collection! I went into the session clearly knowing which dogs belonged to which family because I was given each dog’s full name (dog name + family name) on the family’s intake form. (It’s important you know that one of the dogs is named Schlubby, and he was such a Schlubby they couldn’t possibly have given him another name.)

We carefully timed these multi-generation photos to take place in between rain storms and knee surgery. Luckily crutches were easy to toss to the side when it was time to pose! Aperture Park provided a gorgeous backdrop and gave the dogs lots of trees to sniff, and Luca lots of things to climb on.

It was great to catch up with this family, especially because they have so much fun when they are together and the joy is contagious!

Waterton Family Photography Session [Bev & Dwight]

Waterton family photography

Waterton is a special place for Bev and Dwight. Over the years, they’ve returned to the national park as their family has grown, first by children and then grandchildren. Bev spent some of her time reminiscing about how her and Dwight used to go there when it was just the two of them! This year they added a Waterton family photography session to their visit.

It was so adorable seeing how much their grandchildren loved spending time with them. Everyone vied for seats in their vintage car between photo locations!

We went on lots of fun adventures in Waterton, starting with the cliffs behind the Prince of Wales Hotel and then exploring along the beaches (with just a touch of rock climbing!). It was a beautiful day in the park and luckily all the storms just missed us.

Everyone got to follow up their photoshoot with lunch and beach time!

Early Morning Henderson Lake Family Photos in Lethbridge [Baby C]

early morning Henderson Lake family photos

Baby C was adorable at her photoshoot with her big blue eyes and toothy grin! We started with an indoor photo session in their home where Baby C is happiest. She loved rolling around on their big bed and grabbing her toes. Once she had her fill of kisses from mom and dad there, we headed outside for early morning Henderson Lake family photos. Not only was I in love with her smile, but I loved watching the joy she brings her parents when they interact with her. Their grins are even bigger than hers!

Lethbridge Scottish Highland Ball family photos

Fiona and David’s family love celebrating their heritage. One of their favorite ways to do so is with the Scottish Highland Ball that is held in Lethbridge.

The dance, put on by the Lethbridge Scottish Country Dance Club, is a big affair including a grand march led by a piper, dancing to a live band, and a delicious dinner at the Sandman Signature Hotel.

For the event, everyone dresses in full kilts and ball gowns. Even the little kids take part! This makes the day a perfect opportunity to update their family photos.
