West Lethbridge Winter Family Photography [Nathan]

West Lethbridge winter family photography

I rang in the new year with west Lethbridge winter family photography of this lovely couple. I photographed their engagement session a few years ago and they’ve now added little Nathan to the family! Nathan is such a huge smiler. Any silly sound and face I made behind the camera had him squealing with delight!

We timed our session perfectly between the beautiful snowfall and wind that carried it away. A herd of deer were enjoying Aperture Park during our visit and Nathan loved watching them. One even joined our session!

River Bottom Winter Maternity Photos [Christina & Layne]

Lethbridge river bottom winter maternity photos

Christina and Layne chose a beautiful sunny day for their river bottom winter maternity photos. I absolutely love golden hour at this time of year with how much the warm tones glow in the sun. We only had a bit of snow to deal with in the background! Christina radiated joy for her baby arriving soon.

She and Layne also brought along their first child, JackJack. JackJack is a very small dog with a blonde mohawk! I have never seen such a unique dog before! He wasn’t so sure about what we were up to but he was a good sport about the whole thing.

Indoor Baby Girl Newborn Session in Lethbridge [Adalyn]

indoor baby girl newborn session

Adalyn’s parents were full of joy as they welcomed her into their household. A few weeks after her arrival, I came over to visit for her indoor baby girl newborn session. It was important we capture the connection between their family so we did lots of snuggly photos. Adalyn was a fantastic model for her first ever photoshoot. She slept through nearly the whole session, making adorable cooing noises and sighs the whole time. If she continues to masters those sounds, she’s going to hold a lot of persuasion over her mom and dad!

Batman Themed Maternity Session in Lethbridge [Thorin, Tricia & Colin]

Batman themed maternity session

Tricia and Colin always love to work their geeky interests into their photography sessions. For a while, they were stuck on what theme to pick for their maternity photos for their second baby. Dinosaurs? Harry Potter? While teaching their little boy Thorin about where his new brother or sister is, he repeatedly pointed to Tricia’s belly and exclaimed, “Batman!” I am thus convinced they are having a Batman, and so they decided to go with a Batman themed maternity session!

Equipped with capes, masks, and custom made shirts where they each wear the emblem (including the Bat Baby), we kept warm inside at the university for their photos. Thorin loved looking at all the art sculptures there and getting to fly around (we didn’t have the heart to tell him Batman can’t fly on his own).

Since then, their new superhero has joined their family!

Waterton Winter Anniversary Photos [Kord & Jenny]

Waterton winter anniversary photos

Kord contacted me to do surprise Waterton winter anniversary photos for himself and his girlfriend Jenny on their third anniversary. What a fun gift idea! Jenny was so happy with this perfect gift that she had a lot of trouble putting away her smile. Whenever I’d ask her to be serious for a photo, she would try then exclaim, “I can’t, I’m having too much fun!” (Good thing I’m fast… I got a few serious ones in there!).

This was a rare year that Waterton hasn’t yet experienced its snowpocalypse. We were very flexible in where we could do photos and even had trouble finding snow in a few places! The usual Waterton wind made things a little difficult on the cliffs and shoreline (as in I could barely stand up). On the plus side, we missed the hurricane force winds a few days later and the ridiculousness of the wind made Kord and Jenny laugh even harder as they tried to casually pose in it!

They are such a cute couple and I had a blast exploring Waterton with them. I wish them many more anniversaries!

Henderson Lake Winter Grandchildren Photos [Betty & Doug]

Henderson Lake winter grandchildren photos

Betty has never had photos taken with just her, Doug, and their grandchildren. Her daughter surprised her with a special Henderson Lake winter photo session to do just that! I was told she was so excited even early on in the process when she started planning their outfits. It was pretty cold out in the snow but they braved the weather just along enough to go coatless for their photos. We had so much fun and the Lethbridge park was a perfect winter wonderland.
