Late Spring Maternity Photos [Erin & Ross]

Lethbridge late spring maternity photos

I’m so excited to see Ross and Erin’s family growing! After knowing them for many years and photographing their wedding, I’ve come to know them as super sweet people with great senses of humour and know they will make amazing parents.

They brought along their adorable dog Lazer for their late spring maternity photos at Aperture Park at the University of Lethbridge and I can already tell he’s going to make a great big brother ;) It was such a beautiful evening for photos and almost felt like summer.

Indian Battle Park Morning Children’s Portraits [Audrey]

Indian Battle Park morning children's portraits

Each time I take photos of Audrey, I hardly recognize her from the last time! She has grown so much in the last two years and this time around has added a puppy friend to her life. This was actually my second time working with Minnie because she helped us out at Halloween with our Windy City Canine Rescue, and just a short time after that, Audrey’s family adopted her.

Audrey was such a sweetheart for her Indian Battle Park morning children’s portraits and had such a fun time playing with and feeding snacks to Minnie.

Pavan Park Fall Family Photos [Sandra & the boys]

Pavan Park fall family photos

I’ve danced with Sandra for many years now and loved having a chance to see her so happy with her two boys for their Pavan Park fall family photos. The last year has brought very unfortunate changes to their family as Sandra’s husband passed away earlier this year, but these photos were done in his memory to honor the connection they still have with him. They have always been a tightly knit family and continue to be one :)

They brought along their two sweet dogs Vadie and Dash, who were striking in their pink vests and had so much personality!

Barnwell Country Portrait Session [Tayler]

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Barnwell country portrait photography

I loved working with Tayler again this year for another Barnwell country portrait session with her and all of her adorable animals. Tayler has a huge passion for dance, but I think she’s at her most natural when she’s snuggling her cats, grooming her horses, or rounding up her energetic dogs. Her love of animals is really admirable.

I went out to her family’s place again and we found all new spots from last time for her photos. It’s so beautiful there and they have so much character with their vintage trucks and colorful barns. Tayler was gorgeous and was so easy to photograph again :)

Lethbridge Spring Engagement Photos [Kristen & Andrew]

Lethbridge spring engagement photos

Kristen and Andrew are getting married in a few months and we set out as soon as spring arrived for some casual photos. The two seem so comfortable together like best friends and I love the warmth you can feel between them. Plus they have such great smiles and were super easy to photograph!

They brought along their fur baby Hudson for their Lethbridge spring engagement photos in Indian Battle Park and we started out the session with some “family” pictures :)

I’m glad the wind made us reschedule the week before because it gave the river bottom time for the green spring buds to start coming out!

Indian Battle Fall Family Photos [Mary & John]

Indian Battle fall family photos

Mary and John came to Lethbridge over Thanksgiving weekend to visit their kids, Kendra and Cameron, and took some time out of their schedule to get some updated Indian Battle fall family photos. The leaves were such an amazing color that weekend with rare splashes of orange everywhere. They brought along their senior dog O.D. who was so full of personality despite his hearing and vision problems. He must have known how to smile at the camera even when he couldn’t hear me!

This family was hilarious and joked their way through the whole session. It’s good they are such positive people because we had a bit of trouble with the rain… every so often, despite it being a beautiful day, we’d be hit with pouring rain and even a little hail! We had to run for cover a couple times during our session (including a 10 minute car break when it got really bad!) but luckily it passed every time and we could keep going.

Thanks for braving the rain with me, guys! ;)
