Alberta Cattle Dog Rescue Photos [Millie]

July 3rd, 2018

Alberta cattle dog rescue photos

What a sweetheart! Millie was found left behind when her family moved and didn’t bring her with them. Taken in by AARCS, this sweet cattle dog was soon sent to her foster home in Lethbridge. Within a week, Millie’s confidence sky rocketed! She quickly learned (or re-learned) how to walk on a leash and became a sucker for love and attention. She was so easy to photograph with her laid-back personality. She’d sit anywhere for a treat and stay there until she decided she needed snuggles again. She is such a well-behaved dog that we did these photos at the Dragon Boat Festival and it was no big deal to her! With her adorable spotted coat and attentive pointed ears, I don’t think she’ll be looking for a forever home for long.

Millie is available through the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).

Prince of Wales Wedding Ceremony in Waterton [Jennifer & Scott]

June 28th, 2018

Jennifer and Scott, Prince of Wales wedding ceremony

It’s amazing to live so close to such a beautiful national park. While most of my wedding clients who get married in Waterton live nearby or at least within Alberta, we have a few each year who make a long journey to take in the beauty of the mountains. Jennifer and Scott travelled all the way from the United States to have their wedding here!

With the threat of rain storms looming overhead, they decided on an indoor Prince of Wales wedding ceremony rather than use the bluff overlooking the lakes. Their ceremony took place in the morning so there were very few tourists in the hotel spying on the event!

Jennifer and Scott had their children stand up with them as their wedding party and only travelled with immediate family, making their beautiful wedding that much more intimate. We had to hold off on family photos because what started as one person in happy tears quickly spread to half of their guests!

We were excited to discover how easy going Scott and Jennifer were. No rain could stop them from getting photos in the beautiful Waterton landscape! They were even willing to brave the rain without the umbrella, which was quickly handed in and out of the photos. Their amazing attitudes let us visit Cameron Falls, the fields full of wild flowers, and the burned trees at the edge of town (almost all in the rain). Despite the cold, they were still full of smiles at each other and lost in each other’s embrace.

Congratulations, Jennifer and Scott!

Lethbridge Spring Blossom Maternity Photos [Andrea & Jeff]

Lethbridge spring blossom maternity photos

I went to university with Jeff back in the day so I was excited to hear he and Andrea were expecting a baby this spring! I took them out to my favourite location with pink flowers for their Lethbridge spring blossom maternity photos. Andrea was just glowing and chose a fantastic dress for showing off her baby bump.

We did these photos in a bit of rain because time was of the essence… Andrea was right at her due date and we couldn’t risk postponing! (Luckily she didn’t go into labour during the session!)

Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park 2018

Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park 2018

This year I was invited to have a booth at the annual Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park and despite the rain, it was so much fun! So many people came out in support of Windy City Canine Rescue and braved the weather for a hot dog and visiting lots of puppies. A Better Chance Animal Rescue was at the event with their newest litter available for adoption and the puppies loved the attention! One was an escape artist who kept the volunteers on their toes through the entire event. Many Muddy Paws did a fun demo showing off their students’ running, jumping, and tracking skills.

Cameron Falls Wedding Elopement [Karah & Steve]

June 21st, 2018

Karah & Steve, Cameron Falls Wedding Elopement

Karah and Steve came all the way down to Waterton for their Cameron Falls wedding elopement with their immediate families for a beautiful, intimate ceremony. If their wedding day is any indication, they will have a very lucky marriage! After a week of intense wind leading to a day of thunder storm warnings, we were met with a calm and dry afternoon until just after photos finished.

We were able to go to the Prince of Wales Hotel without blowing away, stop in the wild flower fields, and then take a quick detour out of Waterton to get some amazing views of the mountains away from the wildfire damage.

Their families were so sweet, and completely bursting with excitement the whole day. Karah and Steve have such an amazing support network around them. The couple were so cute together, constantly transitioning from quiet romantic moments to silly faces and poses!

Congratulations, Karah and Steve!

Lethbridge Pet Rabbit Photography Session [Button, Eliza, and Théoden]

June 19th, 2018

Lethbridge pet rabbit photography session

Full disclosure: this was my first ever Lethbridge pet rabbit photography session. These three adorable angels made for an amazing first experience with bunnies! Going in, I knew that whatever their personalities were like, anything would be easier than multiple cats. Despite a bit of defiance from one of the rabbits, I was not wrong!

When I arrived, Button, Eliza, and Théoden were all hanging out in their home for a lazy afternoon. I was immediately greeted by Théoden and Eliza, curious to check out this stranger in their home. Button meanwhile was super chill and just wanted to lounge around. Button continued to lounge around for his photo session while we inserted other, more energetic rabbits around him. He was our photo foundation!
