Indian Battle Park Fall Photos [Nic, Robin, and the Kids]

Indian Battle Park fall photos

Nic and Robin got lucky this year! They scheduled their Indian Battle Park fall photos two days before the blizzard hit us, meaning they are my only family who truly got the fall colours.

Each year I love seeing how much they have grown. At last year’s photos, Olivia wasn’t even walking yet. Now she was chasing after big brother Lucas and easily keeping up with him! These two are so adorable and made sure to make their mom and dad laugh whenever they were behind the camera with me.

We had lots of fun in the river bottom climbing on the logs and running through the grass.

Outdoor Newborn Session in Indian Battle Park [Zach]

outdoor newborn session in Indian Battle Park

Zach’s family celebrated his arrival with an outdoor newborn session in Indian Battle Park. As soon as I met his family, the first words out of big brother Joseph’s mouth were, “This is my baby!” That love for his new brother came out in every photo. Joseph may be one of the most excited big brothers I’ve ever met! Even when we spent a few photos focusing on Zach, Joseph would jump back in for a moment to give his baby brother a quick hug.

Their family session was full of huge smiles and lots of action shots (including the hilarious gross variety when Zach spit up mid-photo!).

Diamond City Couples Photos [Andrew & Nicole on the Cattle Ranch]

Diamond City couples photos

Andrew invited me out to the cattle ranch where he works to have Diamond City couples photos with his girlfriend Nicole. I first met Andrew and Nicole two years ago when their close friends got married and we visited this same cattle ranch for photos. This time we weren’t constrained to where a limo could take them and got to off-road a bit!

The ranch is gorgeous! Coulees and the river form a U-shape around the ranch, giving us river access with tons of yellow wildflowers leading the way to the water. The cows curiously watched us for a few minutes then got bored. This posed a challenge when Andrew and Nicole actually wanted photos with the cows, but the animals all turned their backsides to us!

Nicole and Andrew are adorable together. This would have been a great date night if I hadn’t been the third wheel ;)

Lethbridge River Bottom Photos [Corrine, Albert, and the Kids]

Lethbridge river bottom photos

This year I’ve done a bunch of giveaways to celebrate my 10th year in business. Corrine was one of the lucky winner’s of the year’s first giveway! We waited for nice weather, then her and her family decided to do summertime Lethbridge river bottom photos.

Although the family was briefly photographed by me at Corrine’s sister’s wedding, this was the first time in a long time that the focus was on just them! It seemed fitting that this 10th business year celebration coincided with 10 years since they’ve had proper family photos done.

We started out around Lethbridge’s high level bridge in Indian Battle Park, then headed to the river. The kids loved playing there with all the rocks to throw and trees to climb in!

Lethbridge Newborn Photoshoot [Mathias]

Lethbridge newborn photoshoot

Mathias was surrounded by family and love for his Lethbridge newborn photoshoot. Not only did he get to snuggle his mom in photos, but all of his extended family was there! Mathias is the second grandson in the family (after his cousin) and his abuelos radiated happiness around the two boys.

He started out his session a little sleepy (minus many snack breaks) and then woke up to make the most adorable faces! I especially had a weak spot for this family being Disney fans and including that in the photos :)

Henderson Lake Extended Family Session in Autumn [Marg & Craig]

Henderson Lake extended family session in autumn

It seems to be becoming a tradition that when Marg and Craig get their family together for photos, the wind comes along too! We first experienced this in a big way for their daughter’s wedding in Waterton. A couple years later, the wind arrived just in time that morning. Luckily this left us with tons of leaves on the ground for the kids to play with during their Henderson Lake extended family session and the big trees at the park provided just enough shelter.

Marg and Craig’s children and grandkids traveled from around Alberta to be there for their morning photos in Lethbridge and everyone had so much fun playing together! The kids couldn’t decide if they should play with each other, with their aunts and uncles, or with Grandma and Grandpa, all of whom were showering them with attention.
