Santa Paws Pet Photos at the Bone & Biscuit Lethbridge West 2020

December 24th, 2020

Lethbridge Christmas pet photos with Santa

Our Santa Paws photos looked a little different this year with Coronavirus, but we found new ways to make it work! Santa came to visit us at the Bone & Biscuit location in Crossings in west Lethbridge wearing a very festive mask. We safely spaced out all of our pet families with appointment times, and loved it so much that we’ll do it again! Our more anxious dogs got to have more time to sniff Santa without a bunch of other dogs waiting and watching.

This year all money raised was in support of Windy City Canine Rescue. We were visited by 60 dogs, 4 cats, and broke our average of one dog peeing on the floor with more than 3 accidents! Luckily, Santa did not get peed on this year, and thanks to his mask, you couldn’t tell if a dog had tugged on his beard a little too hard. (However, Santa WAS knocked out of his chair at least twice by excited pooches.)

We saw the return of quite a few favourites from last year (including the small crying boy who, sure enough, still cried at the sight of Santa), and hope to see everyone again next Christmas!

Fresh Snowfall Family Photos in the River Bottom [Melissa & Schuyler]

December 22nd, 2020

fresh snowfall family photos in Lethbridge

Melissa and Schuyler usually get autumn family photos every year, but between quarantines and blizzards, this year they had a very different look in their photos! Their fresh snowfall family photos gave the kids a chance to check out all the animal tracks in the untouched snow and have fun snow fights with each other.

Their youngest was full of laughter through the entire session, so I think he’ll grow into loving winter activities the most out of his siblings ;)

Designed To Dwell Family Photos [Henk & Joanne’s Anniversary]

December 15th, 2020

Designed To Dwell family photos in Lethbridge

Blizzards and shutdowns couldn’t keep this family apart for their parents’ 35th anniversary celebration! Henk and Joanne’s children planned out a special celebratory reunion weekend, part of which included Designed to Dwell family photos.

The beautiful venue definitely came in handy to keep everyone warm during the blizzard that swept through Lethbridge that weekend. Despite the bad roads, everyone was able to make it down to visit their parents. Even luckier was being able to have their reunion before we all went into self-isolation across the province!

Personal Branding Photo Session [Renae from Beautiful Inside Academy]

December 1st, 2020

Lethbridge personal branding photo session

Renae’s personal branding photo session was such a blast! Renae is the brains and heart behind Beautiful Inside Academy, which empowers young women. After our New York trip in December, we started brainstorming some ideas for her session and were finally able to get together in the summer after all of the quarantine upheaval.

The focus in Renae’s work is her connection with her clients and sending a message of self-love, so it was important for the photos to focus on her and show that level of confidence and happiness. Her branding – both business and personal – is based around a strong white and black colour palette, with splashes of pink. I chose a number of white and grayscale backdrops for us to use to really make Renae pop!

Pavan Park Graduation Photos [Eve’s Belated Grad Session]

November 24th, 2020

Pavan Park Graduation Photos

Eve’s graduation wasn’t quite as she expected it to be with how our year played out, but she was still able to celebrate in less traditional ways! Her class had an outdoor event to celebrate their accomplishment, and it was better late than never for her photography session! We did her Pavan Park graduation photos late in summer instead of our original plan for spring. Once her hair stylist and makeup artists were open again, they had a bit of a waitlist to catch up on!

Her dark blue gown made for such a dreamy look among the bright colours in the mid-afternoon, and still looked amazing in the darker shade of the trees. Plus it had just enough volume for some fun twirling photos!

Eve’s mom and little brother came along to help with her photos and were able to enjoy the gorgeous afternoon outside together. She wasn’t technically a university student yet, so it still counted as being a high schooler ;)
