Waterton Family Photo Session [Cheryl, Larry, and Their Boys]

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020

Prince of Wales family photography

Vacationing more locally has surged in popularity (which is no surprise considering our circumstances!). Cheryl and Larry wanted to create special camping memories for their family, so they packed up their RV with their boys and headed south to Waterton. On one of their trips to the national park this summer, they made time one afternoon for a Waterton family photo session.

The family met me at the Prince of Wales on their bicycles. I’m sure all the tourists thought I was insane as I yelled about birds pooping on my head, but I’ll do whatever the kids find the funniest! The boys were also supposed to watch for the ghost behind me (they are currently into Scooby Doo in a big way, and if there’s going to be a ghost in Waterton, I’m sure it would live at the Prince of Wales).

High Level Bridge Multi-Generation Family Photos [Chris & Richard]

High Level Bridge multi-generation family photos in Lethbridge

Chris and Richard planned for High Level Bridge multi-generation family photos while their family was visiting for the weekend. These photos were long overdue since it had been 13 years since their last family session!

Many family members have moved away from Lethbridge, but still have a fondness for the city’s biggest landmark. The river bottom along the Lethbridge Viaduct was therefore the best place to choose for photos.

Their family came prepared with lots of fun props, including the big picture frame they could use to show off their children and grandkids!

Picture Butte Farm Photos [Chris and Len’s Family]

Picture Butte farm photos

To celebrate their parents’ 40th wedding anniversary, Chris and Len’s children and grandchildren made a special trip back home. This would be a great time for photos! They spent some time debating where to do their session, and finally decided on Picture Butte farm photos at the family’s home. This meant an easy day for the grandkids not needing to travel, adding an extra layer of sentimental value to their photos, and having the beautiful grove of trees as a backdrop!

The kids resisted the lure of the play area just long enough for the groups we needed, mostly thanks to help from their moms to keep them occupied and happy in between poses. As soon as they were out of the frame, the kids could be found jumping around and climbing on the trees.

Chris and Len beamed with pride watching their family play. They wouldn’t have wanted to celebrate their anniversary any other way!

Lethbridge nature center family photos

Serena and Dave’s family took a break from their busy schedules to update their personal photography collection. We met on a warm summer evening for their Lethbridge nature center family photos. They were a blast to work with when every few minutes, at least one of them would burst into being silly!

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!

Spring Lilac Family Photos [Sarah, Kyle, & the Kids]

spring lilac family photos

Our spring lilac family photos finally happened! Sarah was super stoked to make use of the pretty purple flowers for their spring blossom mini-session and even did the location scouting for me. Right when it was time for photos, a HUGE storm came in – our first hail and lightning storm of the season!

We rescheduled for the week after and crossed our fingers – both for the weather and that the lilacs would hold out! As photo time approached, the forecast didn’t look good. Sarah and I strategically texted back and forth throughout the day and rushed out to do photos a little earlier than planned. Success! Indian Battle Park was still full of lilacs and the day was lovely, although a little chillier than we had gotten used to.

Sarah and Kyle are some of the loveliest people I know from my university days so it’s always great to catch up with them again. The last time we did photos, Josephine was a lot shorter, and Levon was barely standing on his own! They now giggle wildly at each other and love exploring the nature reserve as a family.
