Indian Battle Park Extended Family Photography [The R & G Family]

Indian Battle Park extended family photography

This Indian Battle Park extended family photography session was a Christmas gift that was meant to take place outdoors back in December, but it was -30C the entire time the family was together! They made the wise decision to postpone until spring when everyone could actually be happy and comfortable in the photos. After a heavy rainfall earlier that day, everything was so green and fresh in the river bottom!

Three generations got together for this family session. The middle generation are part of a blended family, so they had both sets of their parents involved. Without my handy list of how everyone is related, it would have been impossible to tell sibling from cousin, sister from step sister, etc. Even all of the people who married into the family get along so comfortably with everyone that it’s hard to tell who is the sibling and who is the spouse! Everyone makes up one tightly knit family despite moving away, having children of their own, and seeing less of each other. This was such a great environment for the little kids who were happy to run to anyone there for comfort!

Alberta Mountain Engagement Photos [Kristine & Kenneth]

March 14th, 2019

Crowsnest Pass winter engagement photos

Kristine and Kenneth decided that Alberta mountain engagement photos would be a fantastic idea. Neither of them are originally from Alberta and this landscape is one of our most defining features! We traveled to Coleman and Sentinel so we could take advantage of the forest along the Miner’s Path and the mountain vistas along Crowsnest Lake.

We were surprised with COLD. We were supposed to have one more day until the polar vortex swept through our edge of Alberta but it decided to come earlier! Despite the early spring look of everywhere we went, Kristine and Kenneth had to keep hiding their hands in each other’s pockets. At least it gave a perfect excuse for more snuggling!

They are so adorable together. Kenneth needed no direction to shower Kristine in cute kisses. All I really had to tell them was to keep looking like they were actually warm!

Lethbridge proposal photos at Casa

My clients already put a lot of trust in me, but there is no trust quite like being in on a big secret! I was so excited when Kit contacted me to capture Lethbridge proposal photos of this important moment in her life. She planned to ask her girlfriend Tee to marry her on their anniversary. Kit decided on the Casa art gallery downtown with the ruse that they were simply having couples photos taken.

Lethbridge Newborn Baby Photography Session [Kysen]

baby boy Lethbridge newborn baby photography

Kysen did great at his first ever photoshoot! The newborn baby boy slept through the first half of his photography session and then watched with attentive bright eyes at the end. He loved getting snuggles from his mom and dad. A quick cuddle would instantly calm him down whenever needed. This worked out perfectly in our favor to get him juxtaposed with his dad’s tattoos!

Galt Museum Winter Wedding in Lethbridge [Jordanna & Deiter]

February 28th, 2019

Jordanna & Deiter, Galt Museum Winter Wedding

When Jordanna and Deiter booked their Galt Museum winter wedding, they had their fingers crossed for a white wedding. You never know when you’ll get spring in February in Lethbridge! Even though it was cold, they missed the worst of our winter cold snap and were treated to a beautiful fresh coat of snow on the ground.

Jordanna wore a gorgeous red cape to stay warm in her wedding dress in the snow. Her dress itself was stunning, and a very proud internet order success story!

You’d never know by their faces how cold they were. Everyone was full of huge laughter all day and were incredible at tolerating the cold to get outdoor photography. Jordanna and Deiter were even more cute together than at their engagement session. This was especially true during their ceremony where they quickly switched back and forth from tearing up to huge grins.

After our very chilly photos outside, they warmed up with drinks at Italian Table before their reception back at the Galt Museum.

Congratulations, Jordanna & Deiter!

warm Lethbridge winter family photos

To celebrate Shirley’s birthday, her children planned a much needed update to their family photos. We ventured out in the warm Lethbridge winter air (warm, at least, for January) in Indian Battle Park, braving the mud and wind from the week’s Chinook.

Her and Kevin’s family is adorable. I appreciated how welcoming they were of the million times I made them hug each other! Shirley and Kevin were even willing to kiss in front of everyone!
