Quintina & Mike, Readymade Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

During a rare weekend off last summer, I had the opportunity to second shoot for Melanie at Photo Expressions Photography for Quintina and Mike’s wedding. Quintina and Mike had a Readymade outdoor wedding ceremony followed by portraits around the Coaldale area. They were such a happy couple with just as happy friends and spent the whole day smiling and laughing! Even better, they brought their puppy along for the whole day.

Congratulations, Quintina and Mike!

Christmas Pyjama Family Photos in Lethbridge [Elaine & Floyd]

March 1st, 2018

indoor Lethbridge extended family photos

Floyd, Elaine, and their family invited me over during the Christmas weekend. They wanted some fun Christmas pyjama family photos before they headed to their ride on the Polar Express train! Each family wore a cute set of matching holiday PJs and festive hats. The kids were buzzing with Christmas excitement even though it was still a few days away and loved having a chance to play with their cousins and grandparents.

We started out the session in their home with some more classic portraits, and their beautiful red walls that we used as a backdrop really tied together the Christmas theme.

Waterton Lakes Summer Family Photos [Julia & Her Abuelas]

February 22nd, 2018

Waterton Lakes summer family photos

Julia got to experience some very special Waterton Lakes summer family photos when both of her abuelas came from Brazil to visit Canada! Her family wanted to show them some of the best Southern Alberta had to offer during their stay and it’s hard to beat the beauty of Waterton.

We started our photos at the Prince of Wales Hotel where it was just as windy as usual! Julia thought the wind was fun and constantly made airplane arms into it. Julia had so much fun playing with her grandmothers. I’m not sure who made the other smile more! They were so joyful to spend time with their sweet little grand daughter, doing all kinds of singing and dancing together.

Night To Shine 2018 in Lethbridge

February 20th, 2018

Night to Shine 2018 in Lethbridge at the Victory Church

Night to Shine is a huge party held for special needs people so they can feel like celebrities! From the moment they enter on the red carpet, they are met by the paparazzi and cheering fans. Once inside, they are treated to complimentary hairdressers, makeup artists, shoe shines, delicious food, and endless dancing. The event is only held in select cities so it was wonderful to have it in Lethbridge for 2018!

Myself and several other photographers volunteered our services for the evening. Once the limo rides (graciously donated by California Dream Limo) started up, I was on limo duty and had so much fun cruising around the parking lot with everyone! Back inside, the dance floor was constantly packed right up until the last song. I loved seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces!

Outdoor Lethbridge Winter Family Photos [Kristen & The Boys]

outdoor Lethbridge winter family photos

Kristen was the lucky winner of a gift certificate in support of the YMCA and used the opportunity to get outdoor Lethbridge winter family photos with her boys for Christmas. In keeping with the Christmas theme, it was perfect that there was so much fresh snow and that it had finally warmed up enough that they didn’t have to be bundled up for our harsh Canadian weather.

Her boys were hilarious, having no problems making silly faces on command and racing each other through the snow. It’s also obvious how much they love their mom and loved taking breaks from playing together to snuggle with her.

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos [John & Beatrice]

Lethbridge Indoor Three Generation Family Photos

John and Beatrice were ecstatic to have their whole family together for Christmas! Once the holiday excitement died down a few days later, I met up with them for Lethbridge indoor three generation family photos at the University. We had hoped to do the photos outdoors, but with wind chills that week of -30C and colder, the University was a very appropriate backup!

The kids were a little iffy about having to hug their siblings, but the adults gladly grabbed onto each other for tight squeezes! They are definitely a closely knit family :)
