Magrath Autumn Family Photos [Trish and John’s Family]

Magrath autumn family photos

Magrath has such a beautiful nature park, so I was totally on board when Trish and John asked me to come visit them closer to their home for their session! We had a beautiful evening for their Magrath autumn family photos. The timing worked out perfectly between that and having all their kids home at the same time!

The park is a favourite spot for the family to explore, so the kids came ready to climb the awesome big tree that grows over the water. Everyone was so great about following me through bushes and ditches for the best spots!

Colourful Lethbridge Fall Photos [Madison and Mom & Dad]

September 23rd, 2021

colourful Lethbridge fall photos

Madison’s family chose a great day to have their session to take advantage of getting amazing colourful Lethbridge fall photos. The colours last fall were incredible!

It had been two years since I last saw them and Madison had gotten a lot taller since then, but still had her same adorable smile and charisma in front of the camera. She was a little shy to start, but quickly had a great time jumping around and getting piggy back rides from her parents.

Outdoor Lethbridge Men’s Portraiture [Katon]

September 21st, 2021

outdoor Lethbridge men's portraiture

Katon was in need of some new headshots and professional but casual portraits when he contacted me to do his photoshoot. It’s not super often that I get to do a session that is exclusively men’s portraiture, but I love this change from working with families!

I love taking photos at the University of Lethbridge campus because it offers such a great mix of urban and nature locations right next to each other. The urban look was more of what Katon was going for and primarily chose in the end, but I couldn’t resist how great the foliage looked with the autumn colours.

For individual portraits, I always recommend bringing at least two outfits. Katon chose a great contrasting set, including both a more formal dressed up look, as well as a casual look that showed off his tattoos.

Aperture Park Fall Family Session [Danyel & Kim’s Family]

September 16th, 2021

Aperture Park fall family session

The year before last, Danyel and Kim missed their window of opportunity for autumn photos because of the early snow. We ended up doing a belated session that was very chilly. Luckily last year balanced things out! Their Aperture Park fall family session was on such a beautiful, calm morning. Instead of shivering children, their three kids got to run around, twirl, and throw leaves in the air.

The kids had such a fun time exploring the west Lethbridge park that they didn’t even want to go home! It was way more fun to keep climbing things there :)

Personal Branding Top Up Session [Renae from Beautiful Inside Academy]

September 14th, 2021

Lethbridge personal branding top up session

Last fall I had another fun personal branding top up session with Renae from Beautiful Inside Academy.

While Renae is usually about cool neutral colours and a crisp, clean look, she needed something more seasonal she can use in the autumn. We picked a gorgeous day when the colours were vibrant to have some fun throwing leaves, playing on the swings, and hanging out in Pavan Park.

The background may not fit Renae’s brand, but the photos still show her approachable, warm personality and positive outlook. You may also remember her awesome sunglasses from her last session!

Willow Drive Outdoor Wedding in the Crowsnest Pass [Sheridin & Ian]

September 9th, 2021

Sheridin & Ian, Willow Drive outdoor wedding in the Crowsnest Pass

Sheridin and Ian based their wedding around the mountain landscape of their hometown. Their Willow Drive outdoor wedding, entirely held at Ian’s brother’s place, provided sweeping views of the mountains in the Crowsnest Pass and made it easy for so many family members to be there.

This wedding was a celebration of the life Sheridin and Ian have already built together. After meeting in high school, education and work pulled them in different directions for many years while they successfully maintained a long distance relationship. They have finally been able to build a home together and were ready to have a party to celebrate that fact!

After getting ready at their own home and having a backyard first look, we headed to Willow Drive for portraits. Having their wedding there made it so easy to hop between the amazing views in the field and at the Starcreek Falls trail.

They really wanted to center the reception around their love for their families. The heartfelt speeches resulted in so much laughter and crying (sometimes both in the same breath).

Congratulations, Sheridin and Ian!
