Lethbridge Winter Engagement Session [Micah & Steven]

Thursday, January 12th, 2023

Indian Battle Park engagement photos in the snow

Micah & Steven had a very chilly Lethbridge winter engagement session in November. With enough warm car breaks we were able to take full advantage of the winter wonderland that was the coulees that day! The snow around the river bottom looked so beautiful, and especially magical in the golden hour we lucked out with on this sunny day.

Their dog Korra came dressed in the finest formal wear a dog can have, and lasted for a little bit before the cold tippy taps started. (The couple wisely brought a dog wrangler along so Korra could hide out in the car earlier.)

The three of them make such a cute family and I’m glad the snow couldn’t stop us from having a fun outdoor photoshoot.

Congratulations, Micah & Steven!

Wintery Family Photography [Braxton, Heather & Bradly]

wintery family photography in Lethbridge

They finally got snow! For two years in a row, Braxton’s family had tried to do Christmas photos in November and it always ended up being a beautiful fall day. This year they were finally able to send out appropriately themed wintery family photography for the holidays!

We went through photos quickly so they could be without coats in the snow for as little time as possible. Braxton is always so good in front of the camera, so it’s no surprise he was able to pull out his acting skills and not show how cold he was. Snuggling Mom and Dad definitely helped!

Late Winter Extended Family Photos in Lethbridge [Kennie & Josh]

late winter extended family photos

Kennie and Josh had some of their family members come along for their late winter extended family photos. This way their son Lochlan could get photos with lots of his favourite people! Lochlan had a great time with his grandparents and his aunty and couldn’t decide who he wanted to hang out with more. (Hint: it was usually someone different than who was supposed to be in a photo with him at any given time.)

After getting through his shy spell, Lochlan loved doing photos. He made sure we got lots of action shots and took over my job of posing everyone by the end!

We made use of the high level bridge to add some character to the background since it was still before the spring greens arrived.

Galt Museum Family Photos [Karen’s Three Generations]

Galt Museum family photos

After two family weddings with Karen’s children, it was time to get the family together for a new photoshoot now that a few new members have joined the crew. The Christmas holidays were their first time all being together since the newest baby arrived! We opted for Galt Museum family photos since everyone was visiting during the coldest week of the year.

It was so awesome to see everyone again and meet the new family members!

Galt Museum Extended Family Photos [Larry & Val]

Galt Museum extended family photos

COVID travel restrictions kept a lot of families apart for way too long. Val and Larry weren’t able to see their son’s family for long time with them living in the US. Finally at Christmas they were able to make a surprise trip to Lethbridge to visit the rest of the family! Val and Larry’s daughter, being in on the surprise, made sure to schedule Galt Museum extended family photos during her brother’s visit to help celebrate their much anticipated family reunion. These photos were even more special since they hadn’t had them done in 8 years!

Even though it wasn’t cold out yet, we opted to do the photos indoors at the Galt Museum in Lethbridge to avoid the wind. Val and Larry were so obviously excited to see all of their grandchildren together again, and the cousins were having a great time with the visit. We got through the photos super efficiently so they could go back to their Christmas celebrations sooner (and so we wouldn’t overextend any of the teenagers’ patience).

Indian Battle Park Autumn Extended Family Photos [The M Family]

Indian Battle Park autumn extended family photos

Don’t let the warm colours in Meredith and Guerrino’s Indian Battle Park autumn extended family photos fool you. It was starting to snow during their October session and that may have been my fastest extended family shoot ever to get them back to warmth!

I have photographed their son’s family-in-law a bunch of times, so it was great to meet his side this time. All of their children and grandchildren were able to be there and despite the cold, it was so pretty in the river bottom that afternoon.

Thank you for freezing with me, everyone! :)
