Animal Rescue Dog Photography [Twister from AARCS]

animal rescue dog photography from AARCS

I’m always so excited to do animal rescue dog photography to help our four legged friends find their forever homes. One of the last dogs I got to photograph was gentle giant Twister. Her and her foster family met me at Park Lake for her adoption profile photos. She didn’t mind one bit that there were other people and dogs at the lake. She was too focused on all the awesome sticks and my funny noises!

Twister was very quickly adopted through the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).

Cat Photo Session in Lethbridge [Ralphie & Lady]

cat photo session in Lethbridge

Ralphie & Lady’s human mom Taelynn booked her girls a cat photo session. Taelynn cited “cats being adorable” as their special occasion for the photos, and I couldn’t agree more! Both kitties are 10 years old but still extremely playful, especially once catnip gets brought out. You need to work with cats in ways where they are always comfortable, so there was a lot of chasing as we bounced from one piece of their favourite furniture to another.

We mostly focused on the cats, but Taelynn was on hand to jump in for a few photos and offer assistance wildly waving toys around (her hand made it into a lot of hilarious action shots). I had so much fun playing with the kitties!

Santa Paws Photos at the Bone & Biscuit Lethbridge 2021

Thursday, December 9th, 2021

This year we had very ambitious goals for Santa Paws! With the opening of The Bone & Biscuit’s second Lethbridge location on Mayor Magrath this year, we decided to do two days of Santa visiting pets. It’s a good thing we had the extra space available because even with doubling the number of appointments we took per hour from last year, we filled every spot and had to turn many pups away!

We saw the return of many familiar faces (and whiskers), some of which added new members to their family, and we made lots of new friends. So many more kitties came to see Santa this year, and everyone was on their best behaviour. Santa got lots of kisses but hardly got de-bearded, and never got knocked over once. We did hit a new record with 4 potty accidents on one day though!

Money was raised for Wag-A-Muffins Animals Rescue and we thank everyone who brought their pets for helping support this rescue.

Autumn Family and Pet Photos in the River Bottom [Claudette & Marc]

Lethbridge autumn family and pet photos

Claudette and Marc had plenty of things to celebrate and combined it all for autumn family and pet photos. The couple were recently engaged so it was a perfect time to update family photos with the boys, as well as get a few cute engagement photos.

They also wanted to celebrate their older dog Stella while she’s still full of energy (the river bottom brought out extra energy). While Stella is in her senior years, little Monte is a brand new addition to the family!

After some cute photos with the dogs, they were put back in the warm vehicle so things could be a little more chill for the human members of the family.

We had to work quickly… after a gorgeous autumn week, Claudette and Marc’s photoshoot was scheduled just one hour before the first big snowfall of the season started! It was MUCH colder than these photos let on! ;)

Lethbridge spring blossom mini session

The spring blossoms in Lethbridge in 2020 were amazing, and I think we may have had the nicest May long weekend ever! Piper’s family took advantage of this perfect spring and their extra time together during quarantine for a spring blossom mini session. We found tons of beautiful pink flowers only a block from their house. They walked over with their dog Poppy for their cute family session.

Newborn Puppy Photos in Lethbridge [Siberian Husky Puppies]

Lethbridge newborn puppy photos

I have been wanting to give newborn puppy photos the human baby treatment forever, so when I found out Tayler’s Siberian Husky Winter was about to have babies, I was so ready for it!

Winter had a litter of seven adorable puppies. I had to wait until they were just big enough that they looked more like dogs and so their eyes wouldn’t be hurt by the flashes, then brought all my baby posing props over for an adorable photoshoot.

The puppies are still at the super sleepy age, but a few were starting to get very rambunctious (if you’re wondering why some photos have only 6 sleeping puppies out of 7). They are all so sweet and soft and it was hard to go home without one at the end!
