Indoor Winter Baby Photos in Lethbridge [Maskeen]

indoor winter baby photos in Lethbridge

Most people go for newborn photos of their babies, but babies get so fun when they can sit up on their own! Maskeen had just hit that age when his parents scheduled his indoor winter baby photos at their house.

Maskeen took a little while to warm up to having a stranger in his house but once he did, his big smiles that he’s known for came out! We cycled through all of his cute outfits before getting him toasty in his blue tracksuit and going for a quick visit to snowy Henderson Lake.

Taber fall family photos

Darlene and Stuart had all of their kids come home so they could update their wall portraits with all their new grandchildren for their Taber fall family photos. The morning was chilly but everyone came ready in long sleeves and coats just out of the frame (behind the camera I was dressed for winter!). The MD Park in Taber looked gorgeous that weekend and all of their grandkids were so cute together (especially when they held hands!).

Lethbridge Acreage Fall Photos [Deb & Larry]

Lethbridge acreage fall photos

You don’t need to go far for photos when you have this in your front yard! Larry and Deb made use of their classic pickup truck as a feature piece in their Lethbridge acreage fall photos. Both of their sons’ families came to visit for the family session and after a few bad weather reschedules, we ended up with a beautiful warm morning at the end of October!

Their acreage provided ample opportunities for posed and action photos, with lots of fun things for their grandsons to climb on (the best of which was obviously the trampoline where they could show off their acrobatic skills). These two cousins have such a great time together that I would have guessed they were brothers if I hadn’t been told!

Countryside Barn Venue Wedding Album [Rebecca & Aaron]

February 2nd, 2023

Countryside Barn Venue wedding album design

Some weddings just work so well as album designs, and Rebecca and Aaron’s Countryside Barn Venue wedding album was definitely one of those. The earthy tones of the brown aviator leather spine and oatmeal linen bag perfectly complemented the rustic vibe of their barn wedding. They went with a 20 page Modern+ album featuring highlights from throughout the wedding day at the Countryside Barn Venue. They let me choose the photos for their design, which always gives me a good feel of the challenge couples go through making those decisions. It’s very hard to narrow photos down!

An Explosion of World Dance and Music, 2023 Lethbridge Show!

January 31st, 2023

World Dance & Music poster Ammena Dance Company 2023

It’s time for another Ammena Dance Company production of An Explosion of World Dance & Music at the Yates, which also means a new poster design!

This year’s theme is “All You Need Is Love” to highlight how inclusive the studio is and how we have supported each other through the relationships built there. The theme proved challenging once Lise-Anne realized it was hard not to make it look Valentine’s themed and we both had to really brainstorm for the poster. My mind kept returning to the Beatles but Cam warned me not to go too far in that direction or else people would be very surprised when we don’t put on a 60s style show! I tried to let Yellow Submarine vibes come into the process without spending too long looking at Beatles art to go too far in that direction.

The Beatles style definitely came into play with the multiple image idea. Lise-Anne doesn’t like having her photo taken, and yet I somehow talked her into a concept that involved four photos! (By the time I pointed this out to her, it was too late! Ha!)

We have a big show anniversary coming up and Lise-Anne has displayed all of the past posters in the studio. After noticing how often we went with a dramatic dark or red accented theme (red is probably the most used dance costume color!), I had so much fun doing something so colorful and different!

Galt Museum Evening Wedding [Jillian & Keith]

January 26th, 2023

Jillian & Keith, Galt Museum evening wedding

Jillian and Keith held a Galt Museum evening wedding on what turned out to be an almost spring-like winter day. Jillian rocked a vintage movie star look while Keith let his personality out with a plaid suit and red shoes. The marriage represented the official joining of their families, so it was only fitting that their kids were the wedding party!

After a first look at their home and a couple portraits with their dogs, we took everyone to the coulees near their home to make use of the view in golden hour. Next we headed to The Galt Museum to get portraits around the museum’s architecture before their ceremony.

Their night time ceremony and reception was a beautiful tribute to the life they are building together and they were surrounded by the people who are most special to them.

Congratulations, Jillian and Keith!
