Lethbridge late autumn family photos

It’s been a delight watching Avery grow up this year as I’ve photographed her family at various milestones. I can’t believe she’s already sitting up on her own and having some cute little teeth pop out! This time we got to focus on her for Lethbridge late autumn family photos with her mom and dad at the university. The photos may have been intended for Christmas cards, but we sure didn’t have Christmas weather (and I am not complaining!). She took a little more coaxing than normal to smile, but once we got her going, she couldn’t stop bouncing and grinning.

Indian Battle Park Fall Morning Session [Amber, Ian, & the Kids]

Indian Battle Park fall morning session

I have been happily watching Amber and Ian’s family grow since I photographed their wedding my very first year I started my business. I feel like it wasn’t that long ago, but how big the kids are getting tells me otherwise! The kids have grown up so much since the last time I saw them and they’re now at the perfect age to follow all the directions I throw at them for photos. We met down in the river bottom for their Indian Battle Park fall morning session on a beautiful day and had a bit of time left over at the end for a playground party.

Lethbridge University Lake Couple’s Session [Davina & Jonathan]

Lethbridge University Lake couple's session

Davina and Jonathan chose an almost summer-like day for their Lethbridge University Lake couple’s session in the late autumn. We hardly even had wind! This was a great thing as Davina has recently moved to Lethbridge from out of province and is still adjusting to our “breezes” we regularly get here ;)

While Davina has relocated here for work, her boyfriend Jonathan is still back home and he came to Lethbridge for a special visit with her. I really appreciate them taking a moment out of such an important week for a few photos! They brought along their adorable dog Lyndee, who has the cutest ears with curly hair. Lyndee loved sniffing around at the university but was easy to distract when we gave her bag of biscuits a good shake!

Lethbridge Halloween Themed Wedding [Paul & Stephanie]

Stephanie & Paul, Lethbridge Halloween themed wedding photos

Halloween is my favourite holiday so I jumped at the opportunity to second shoot for Melanie at Photo Expressions when she told me a Lethbridge Halloween themed wedding was in the works! Stephanie and Paul definitely agree with me about what an awesome holiday it is :) They loaded up on decorations last year when the Halloween stores had clearance in preparation for their big day the next year.

They started out the day in traditional wedding attire but chose Halloween colours as their accents. We had a gorgeous day to do photos out at Nicholas Sheran Lake, and even managed to find a few leaves left at the end of the month! Stephanie and Paul make each other laugh so hard that they almost collapse. There were very few moments when either of them didn’t have a huge grin on their faces.

Their reception was a costume party held at the Lethbridge Hungarian Club, and nearly every guest got in the spirit and dressed up! There were so many amazing costumes and everyone was so happy and energetic (I’m sure the Halloween candy bar helped with that).

Lethbridge City Hall Autumn Family Photos [Lynn & Dennis]

Lethbridge City Hall autumn family photos

Lynn and Dennis got their children and grandsons together for their Lethbridge City Hall autumn family photos, and despite it being the end of October, it was a warm day, there were still leaves on the nearby trees, and there wasn’t a gust of wind! They have such a good looking family who are so close to each other. The cousins act like siblings and the in-laws know how to dish out the jabs just as much as everyone else does :)

I was really excited when they wanted to use an urban setting. The City Hall building is one of my favorite photo spots in Lethbridge with its great architecture and the way it reflects the sky and the weeping willows that line the street in front.

Lethbridge River Bottom Anniversary Portraits [Charleen & Chris]

Lethbridge River Bottom anniversary portraits

It was great to catch up with Charleen and Chris again for their Lethbridge river bottom anniversary portraits. I love so much that they keep up this tradition of updating their photos every few years for their anniversary, and keeping it close to their wedding date makes it so great for reflecting on how their relationship has grown. Even though they’ve been together a while, they are still giggly like newly weds and have no awkwardness about cuddling and being close to each other.

We spent a beautiful evening exploring behind the Helen Schuler Nature Centre for their anniversary session. The fall colours have been so amazing this year and I loved the colours Charleen and Chris chose to wear to go with it. It’s especially impressive when they put their wardrobes together at the last minute between having colds and being busy with work! ;)
