Mahlia, Chrysline & Michael | Lethbridge Maternity Photos

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

I love following this family! Though I have photographed their siblings, cousins, and friends, it all started a few years ago when I did Chrysline and Michael’s maternity photos. Now Mahlia is getting pretty grown up, and they are adding a set of twins into the family in a few months! I think Chrysline is double-glowing as a result :)

I was so happy we had a beautiful evening for photos and there were just enough leaves left on the trees. (more…)

Joan & Erwin – A Baby on the Way | Lethbridge

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

It was so great to see Joan and Erwin again! They are also expecting their first baby just next month, and I’m so happy for them :) Their little girl is going to have a lot of other babies to play with because there have been a bunch of other little ones in the family recently, including some twins coming up! This is definitely going to be one cute baby; Joan and Erwin were just as adorable as I remember them :) (more…)

Amanda’s maternity session, Lethbridge

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Amanda’s second baby is on the way soon, and she wanted to do a stylish photo shoot to celebrate! We turned her house in a mini-photo studio and she picked out an amazing, flattering wardrobe to show off her tummy. I’m also proud of her for balancing in her high heels because that can be challenging enough when you aren’t packing a little person along with you :) (more…)

Maternity photos with the dogs! – Lethbridge

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

I love doing photos with Sara, so I was thrilled to have another session with her! She and Michel are expecting their first baby in a couple months, so they wanted to get some family photos with their dogs Goldie, Riley, and Buddy before the baby comes. After the dogs decided that photos were absolutely out of the question and it was only time to play fight, we finished off the session with some maternity photos with just Sara and Michel. They are so cute together! (more…)

Maternity photos with a Vegas twist

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Last year when I went to Vegas to attend WPPI, I was standing in line waiting for Jerry Ghionis’ platform class and started talking to the girl in front of me. What a small world it was; she was from Calgary! I hadn’t seen Stephanie since meeting her then, but we agreed we’d definitely get together in Vegas again this year (don’t worry, I’ll have a post coming about that soon enough!).

This year found her with a baby in her belly, so we decided some Vegas maternity photos were in order! The Vegas strip has a million fantastic photo locations that always get the gears in my head going, but I just couldn’t make it past the hallway to the convention center at MGM! The colorful walls called to me…

Stephanie was willing to strip down in front of all the other photographers walking by, and it was fun stopping for everyone who was chimping the back of my camera to see what we were up to! It was so much fun and challenging working in a totally different environment for maternity photos; usually I prefer to use a lot of natural light and give the photos more of a soft feel, but if you’ve been in any of the casinos in Vegas, you know they are very dark and very dramatic! My mom acted as my lighting assistant with my single strobe (I wanted to travel light – no pun intended), which made the shoot much easier, seeing as how I didn’t have a light stand with me ;)

Check out what a cutie Steph is… (more…)

Maternity photos with Amy and her family

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

This afternoon I met such a sweet family! Amy, Tarek, little Zak, and big fuzzy Captain are expecting baby #2 next month and invited me over to take photos of their family just before the new addition comes. Amy and Tarek are a darling couple, Zak is adorable and full of energy, and of course I loved Captain because I loooooove big dogs! Needless to say, I had a great time! (more…)
