Beautiful Spring Blossom Women’s Portraiture [Sadie]

beautiful spring blossom women's portraiture

I was really excited about my locations for spring blossoms this year and wanted to test them all out before my mini sessions started. (Plus I love any excuse to take photos in the flowers!) Why not spend a morning doing some beautiful spring blossom women’s portraiture? I’ve been wanting to work with local model Sadie for a while and she happened to be available right when I wanted to schedule these. Double win! Sadie was amazing to work with and brought along a fantastic wardrobe to go with the spring colours.

Lethbridge Indoor Family Newborn Session [Arya]

Lethbridge indoor family newborn session

After the blizzard left mountains of fresh snow outside, Arya stayed warm and toasty in her new home for her Lethbridge indoor family newborn session. She was wide awake the whole time but totally fine with any of the modelling we made her do! Her big sister Evelyn was so excited for their first photoshoot together and brought along her biggest grin. Both girls are so sweet and their mom and dad are so happy to see their family grow.

Everyone dressed in blue to match the colors in their new home, which made all the blue eyes really pop!

Outdoor Fort Macleod Newborn Family Photos [Cashton]

Fort Macleod newborn family photos

At just under a month old, Cashton got in front of the camera for his Fort Macleod newborn family photos with his parents, brothers, and adorable dog Django in the River Valley Wilderness Park. His family is so in love with him that everyone was begging for a chance to hold him in the photos (with the exception of Django). It was a beautiful day for doing outdoor newborn pictures and Cashton was on his best behaviour for his very first photoshoot.

Lethbridge Winter Headshot Session in the Snow [Leslie]

Lethbridge winter headshot session

Leslie is happiest when it snows, so when her friend treated her to a headshot session as a Christmas gift, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! We planned her Lethbridge winter headshot session at the very last minute (the snow was falling that night and would melt within two days) and headed over to Aperture Park on the west side with Leslie’s favourite winter coats in tow. Leslie is a talented author and a joy to be around, so I wanted to make sure her new book portraits matched her personality.

Coalhurst Outdoor Ice Rink Hockey Photos [Denise & Craig]

Coalhurst outdoor ice rink hockey photos

Last winter, Denise and Craig had an awesome idea to do Coalhurst outdoor ice rink hockey photos, but there was no snow! Winter kind of skipped us that year. Luckily (for their concept, not local travellers), 2018 was the year of snow! The ice rink was well maintained and surrounded by heaps snow, perfect for the winter look they wanted. They put on their favorite Oilers jerseys, grabbed their hockey sticks, and set out onto the ice for their couples photoshoot.

Their cute little dogs Sadie and Piper came equipped with their own matching jerseys. It was their first time “skating” and they did surprisingly well! I think their low centers of gravity definitely helped. The only challenge was figuring out how to run on the ice, but the snow banks surrounding the rink made that part a little easier. Piper especially loved sliding down the packed snow.

Men’s Fashion Portrait Session in Lethbridge [Ray]

men's fashion portrait session in Lethbridge

Ray contacted me when he was in need of a men’s fashion portrait session to build up a talent portfolio for himself. We decided on the University of Lethbridge so that Ray could easily change between his different looks. I’m glad we did because it was COLD outside! Luckily one of his looks was made for the cold weather and we started the session with some winter fashion. Don’t let the autumn colors fool you – it had been snowing a few minutes earlier!

Ray is just getting started with modelling but he was already a natural in front of the camera. I think he’ll have a good career ahead of him!
