Norland Winter Wedding Album [Kaylene & James]

June 4th, 2020

Norland winter wedding album

Kaylene and James had me design their Norland winter wedding album from the ground up, starting with selecting all of the images. I have just as much trouble narrowing down the photos as my couples do, so trust me, this is quite a task!

The album uses a clean white design with monochromatic details to match the gray, silver, and black colours that were used in James and Kaylene’s 1920s inspired wedding at the Norland Historic Estate.

This is an example of the Modern+ Wedding Album with a charcoal leather spine and a black fabric bag.

Lethbridge Industrial Photos [Tradesman Manufacturing]

Southern Alberta commercial photography

Last year Tradesman MFG contacted me to update their staff photos for their website. I set up my mobile studio in their company break room and each employee was sent up for a photo, only disrupting their day by a few minutes.

Once the staff was done, I ventured out to the factory floor for industrial stock photos personalized to the work that Tradesman Manufacturing does. Donning my hardhat, I received a tour of their whole facility and was able to photograph both their products and their employees hard at work.

Lethbridge Cat Session [Franklin and Audrey’s Birthday]

Lethbridge pet photography

To celebrate the shared first birthdays of kitties Audrey and Franklin, their human mom treated them to a Lethbridge cat session. Each cat got a special birthday outfit. Franklin looked dashing in his sparkly bowtie, while Audrey turned heads with her purple tutu.

The kitties were very excited to have me visit their birthday party, though Audrey quickly decided the camera was super scary (I was totally fine, it just wasn’t allowed to cover my face!). We had to use some trickery to get photos of her, while Franklin was much simpler to please. For him, a well placed toy led him anywhere we wanted!

Indian Battle Park Anniversary Family Photos [Peggy & Lourens]

Indian Battle Park anniversary family photos

Peggy and Lourens celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary last year and thought that would be a great time to get the gang together for anniversary family photos! The group has grown by quite a few little members since our last session, which meant a lot more dancing around and silly songs by the adults this time.

The little kids did great considering they all wanted to run around and explore the nature park instead of pose (especially the littlest ones who had just learned to walk), but many aunts and uncles came to the rescue.

To switch things up from last time, we visited Indian Battle Park in Lethbridge. One thing that was like their last session was the risk of being rained out again! We had better luck though and no umbrellas were needed this year :)

It’s been such an honour watching this family grow, and I hope to follow them through their next 30 years of anniversaries!

Lethbridge River Bottom Maternity Photos [Ashley & Jon]

Lethbridge river bottom maternity photos

Before they planned to do maternity photos, Ashley and Jon went on one final adults only trip to Disneyland to celebrate the chapter of their lives that was just the two of them. They used the park’s “do not ride while pregnant” signs to cleverly announce their pregnancy to their friends.

Ashley and Jon are guaranteed to never forget what this pregnancy was like after their trip! Not long after arriving home, we were all ordered to self-isolate and the couple had already scheduled a move. All of that on top of expecting a baby is a lot!

We now had the added difficulty of how to do photos while keeping our distance from everyone and everything…

Lethbridge Commercial & Event Photography [Western Financial Branch Opening]

April 30th, 2020

Lethbridge commercial photography

I was able to provide both commercial and event photography last year when Western Financial Group opened their new branch on the west side of Lethbridge. Prior to their big public opening, I visited the location to do on-site portraits of their manager and staff.

Later that month, they had a grand opening event where they invited the other branches to check out the new space. Mayor Spearman came along to help with the ribbon cutting. Their marketing person managed to track down a pair of those ridiculous over-sized scissors for the special occasion, and the scissors were a huge hit with the attendees! I floated around the event capturing candid photos of the guests, as well as a few portraits with stakeholders.
