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

December 29th, 2022

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.

Santa Paws Photos at the Bone & Biscuit Lethbridge 2022

December 23rd, 2022

Santa Paws at Bone & Biscuit in Lethbridge, 2022

Last year was so much fun doing Santa Paws photos at both of The Bone & Biscuit’s Lethbridge locations that we decided to do it again this year!

The outfits just keep getting cuter. We had way more doggie-sized Christmas sweaters this year, a beret-wearing Chihuahua, and a full on gingerbread man/dog with baker! I love seeing the same families year after year and meeting the new ones. It’s especially great when families have grown by a dog, kitty, or (to quote mom) a “skin puppy.” ;)

Money was raised for Wag-A-Muffins Animal Rescue and we thank everyone who brought their pets for helping support this rescue.

As usual it was so hard to narrow it down, but this year had some of the funniest bloopers like doggie tantrums and our first full on howl!

Galt Museum Family Photos [Karen’s Three Generations]

December 20th, 2022

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]

December 15th, 2022

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).

AARCS 2023 Calendar Photos [Lula & Jarvis]

December 1st, 2022

AARCS 2023 fundraiser calendar, Lula and Jarvis dog photography

This year I was asked to photograph Lula and Jarvis for the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) annual fundraiser calendar and much to our surprise, Lula made the cover of the calendar! Lula is the perfect poster child/puppy for a rescue success case, going from being found with a leash lacerated into her neck, to being the happiest dog with her forever family. Her fur brother Jarvis came from a similar background, making them such a perfect match to be together. Jarvis was honoured with his own special appearance in the calendar too, and this pair had fun getting lots of treats at their photoshoot.

Calendars can still be purchased through AARCS, so get one while you can for this great cause! Rescues are really struggling this year so any help makes a huge difference.

Learn a little more about Jarvis and Lula’s stories here.

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

November 29th, 2022

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! :)
