Lethbridge River Bottom Family Photography [Anna & John]

Lethbridge river bottom family photography

Anna and John managed to get their whole family together for one weekend and celebrated the rare occurance with Lethbridge river bottom family photography. John received the VIP treatment as he had recently injured his foot and was wheeled from location to location by his grandchildren. All of the kids loved playing together and being able to spend time with their cousins, while the aunts and uncles taught the kids silly nicknames for each other. I was so happy we were able to organize everyone at the last minute for photos in Indian Battle Park!

Rustic Engagement Photos in the Crowsnest Pass [Nancy & Brett]

Crowsnest Pass rustic engagement photos

Nancy and Brett had their hearts set on the mountains for their session while still capturing rustic engagement photos. Coleman in the Crowsnest Pass had just the right feel for everything! After some woodsy vibes at the Miner’s Path, we went to the wide open valley that overlooks the mountains and then to downtown. They had one of their first dates in downtown Coleman near where we did the later portion of their photos. As soon as we arrived, they started smiling and reminiscing!

Despite having to get up early for the drive to the Crowsnest Pass, Nancy and Brett were so cheery and energetic. Their adoration for each other is almost contagious. Only a few minutes into our session, Nancy apologized: “Sorry if we’re kissing too much; we just can’t stop!”

Multi-Generation Photos in West Lethbridge [Debbie & Larry]

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

multi-generation photos

It’s been nearly 7 years since Larry and Debbie rounded up the kids for family photos, so a lot has changed since then! The biggest change is that “little” Luca went from being a giggly toddler to a talkative big kid. Plus, a whole bunch of doggies have been added to the collection! I went into the session clearly knowing which dogs belonged to which family because I was given each dog’s full name (dog name + family name) on the family’s intake form. (It’s important you know that one of the dogs is named Schlubby, and he was such a Schlubby they couldn’t possibly have given him another name.)

We carefully timed these multi-generation photos to take place in between rain storms and knee surgery. Luckily crutches were easy to toss to the side when it was time to pose! Aperture Park provided a gorgeous backdrop and gave the dogs lots of trees to sniff, and Luca lots of things to climb on.

It was great to catch up with this family, especially because they have so much fun when they are together and the joy is contagious!

University of Lethbridge Masters Degree Convocation Photos [Martha]

University of Lethbridge Masters Degree Convocation Photos

Martha is a very dear friend of one of my favorite university professors that I’ve ever had. I’ve seen so many photos of her and heard so many of their adventures that I almost felt like I knew her before I met her! As part of her graduation gift, Martha’s friend treated her to convocation portraits. This year Martha accomplished the huge achievement of graduating with a University of Lethbridge Masters Degree in Environmental Science.

We did the photos at the University of Lethbridge to honour the hard work she put in on campus. However, Martha was feeling a little done with her studies by that point so we stuck to more of the natural landscape around the university rather than looking at the buildings. The lilacs are amazing this year and were still in bloom on campus so we took full advantage of them.

Upon meeting Martha you can immediately sense how kind and positive she is. This was even more apparent in how happy she looked wearing several layers with her cap and gown in the heat! It was super hot that day – unbelievably so! – but Martha was full of smiles and laughter.

Congratulations on your graduation, Martha!

Waterton Family Photography Session [Bev & Dwight]

Waterton family photography

Waterton is a special place for Bev and Dwight. Over the years, they’ve returned to the national park as their family has grown, first by children and then grandchildren. Bev spent some of her time reminiscing about how her and Dwight used to go there when it was just the two of them! This year they added a Waterton family photography session to their visit.

It was so adorable seeing how much their grandchildren loved spending time with them. Everyone vied for seats in their vintage car between photo locations!

We went on lots of fun adventures in Waterton, starting with the cliffs behind the Prince of Wales Hotel and then exploring along the beaches (with just a touch of rock climbing!). It was a beautiful day in the park and luckily all the storms just missed us.

Everyone got to follow up their photoshoot with lunch and beach time!

Early Morning Henderson Lake Family Photos in Lethbridge [Baby C]

early morning Henderson Lake family photos

Baby C was adorable at her photoshoot with her big blue eyes and toothy grin! We started with an indoor photo session in their home where Baby C is happiest. She loved rolling around on their big bed and grabbing her toes. Once she had her fill of kisses from mom and dad there, we headed outside for early morning Henderson Lake family photos. Not only was I in love with her smile, but I loved watching the joy she brings her parents when they interact with her. Their grins are even bigger than hers!
