Smoky Indian Battle Park Engagement Session [Isabelle & Andrew]

Smoky Indian Battle Park Engagement Session

Isabelle and Andrew probably hadn’t quite planned on a smoky Indian Battle Park engagement session, but we worked with what we had! The smoke from the BC wild fires wasn’t too terrible that day and cast the High Level Bridge in a dreamy haze. They are both such kind people and could not be happier when they look at each other. It took no effort to make them giggle together and they snuck way more kisses in than I gave them permission for. ;) It was great to finally meet them after conversing from a distance and I can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Lundbreck Falls Autumn Engagement Photos [Lindsay & Terry]

Lundbreck Falls autumn engagement photos

Lindsay and Terry love spending time outdoors, especially if it means visiting the Crowsnest Pass. Since their wedding is taking place in Lethbridge, they wanted to include this favorite destination of theirs in their engagement session instead. It’s always so tough to narrow down the scenic locations there! They decided on Lundbreck Falls autumn engagement photos, which was a perfect time of year as nearly all the tourists were gone. We got so lucky with the weather too! Despite a heavy snowfall warning, down below the mountains the fall landscape held on in gorgeous red and yellow tones. Only the mountain tops were dusted with a coating of snow to show the seasons colliding. Terry and Lindsay did an amazing job pretending it was warmer than it was (behind the scenes I was in a poofy parka!) and we were pleased to discover how much warmer it was at the base of the falls!

Pavan Park Late Autumn Family Photos [Lana & Jamie]

Pavan Park late autumn family photos

Each day in October last year was a total surprise for what the weather would do. The day before Lana and Jamie’s session we had snow, and for theirs it warmed up at the cost of a wind warning! We tucked ourselves deep into the river bottom to escape the wind and found the last few leaves before the wind took them all away. Their Pavan Park late autumn family photos had just enough colour left and tons of leaves to throw in the air for some fun action shots. Lana and Jamie have raised such a friendly family and they were so easy to work with. Being close to each other comes so naturally to them!

Urban Lethbridge Yoga Portraits [Sarasponda Yoga]

urban Lethbridge yoga portraits

This has been a few years in the making! I have been wanting to do photography that contrasts the human shape with architectural shapes. Lethbridge has some amazing architectural details, some of which are famous like the high level bridge while others are the neat little nooks downtown. For a long time I thought I wanted to do the photos with a ballet dancer, but soon started realizing we have such amazing yoga talent in our city. The project thus turned into urban Lethbridge yoga portraits!

It was a perfect fit to connect with Sarasponda Yoga and combine our visions for this project. Sarah is so talented at her yoga practice and I highly recommend taking classes from her. She completely rocked the vision I had and did amazing work while doing yoga poses barefoot on concrete and steel.

Pavan Park Autumn Morning Family Portraits [JJ & Shaun]

Pavan Park autumn morning family portraits

I love our annual tradition of photographing this part of my family. Nothing shows how much the girls have grown than comparing their photos side by side each year! Now that they’re both school age, they are awesome little models and rocked their hip attitude poses. We ended up doing gorgeous sun-kissed Pavan Park autumn morning family portraits after rescheduling from rain earlier in the weekend. It was such a fun morning, and their grandparents came along for a few photos at the beginning too!

Lethbridge Summertime Playful Family Photos [April & Tom]

Lethbridge playful family photos

April is a total sweetheart who I know through dance, and I was honoured when she asked me to photograph her family. They wanted the photos to be representative of the years they have lived in Lethbridge so we chose the High Level Bridge as a backdrop. It was also important to capture playful family photos with a lifestyle feel and April went all out! Her, Tom, and the boys came equipped with pool noodles and loaded water guns, ready to battle it out at the end of the session. I love all of the joy that came out during those photos!
