Shannon Terrace Family Photos in Calgary [Melissa & Schuyler]

Shannon Terrace family photos in Calgary

I was pretty sad to learn that one of my favourite Lethbridge families was moving to Calgary. However, things still managed to align during their first year in their new home and we were able to schedule a session while I was passing through the city! Melissa suggested Fish Creek Park as a potential location and I got to work researching what would be the best spot in this large nature reserve. Once I found the beautiful forest backgrounds, I knew we had to do Shannon Terrace family photos!

This part of the park looks like a forest in the mountains. I was shocked that this existed right in Calgary. Everywhere we wandered we found huge trees, views of the creek, and fun fallen logs to climb on. The kids may be hitting age ranges where they have more disagreements with their siblings than affection, but they could all agree that the exploring was still fun to do together :)

Warm Autumn Afternoon Family Session [Bobbi-Jo & Ryan]

warm autumn afternoon family session in Lethbridge

Bobbi-Jo and Ryan celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary last year and decided that would be a great time to update their family photos! Like most families, they started spacing out regular photos once their babies turned into bigger kids, so it’s been a few years since I last saw them. I can’t believe I’ve been photographing this family since their oldest was a baby. How did the kids all get so big??

Their warm autumn afternoon family session was a bit of a miracle after we had to move their photos around several times trying to avoid the snow that was on its way. This gorgeous sunny session took place mere hours before the blizzard moved in!

It was wonderful to catch up with them again and the boys had so much fun having races and climbing on the bridge in Indian Battle Park.

Magrath autumn family photos

Magrath has such a beautiful nature park, so I was totally on board when Trish and John asked me to come visit them closer to their home for their session! We had a beautiful evening for their Magrath autumn family photos. The timing worked out perfectly between that and having all their kids home at the same time!

The park is a favourite spot for the family to explore, so the kids came ready to climb the awesome big tree that grows over the water. Everyone was so great about following me through bushes and ditches for the best spots!

Colourful Lethbridge Fall Photos [Madison and Mom & Dad]

colourful Lethbridge fall photos

Madison’s family chose a great day to have their session to take advantage of getting amazing colourful Lethbridge fall photos. The colours last fall were incredible!

It had been two years since I last saw them and Madison had gotten a lot taller since then, but still had her same adorable smile and charisma in front of the camera. She was a little shy to start, but quickly had a great time jumping around and getting piggy back rides from her parents.

Aperture Park Fall Family Session [Danyel & Kim’s Family]

Aperture Park fall family session

The year before last, Danyel and Kim missed their window of opportunity for autumn photos because of the early snow. We ended up doing a belated session that was very chilly. Luckily last year balanced things out! Their Aperture Park fall family session was on such a beautiful, calm morning. Instead of shivering children, their three kids got to run around, twirl, and throw leaves in the air.

The kids had such a fun time exploring the west Lethbridge park that they didn’t even want to go home! It was way more fun to keep climbing things there :)

Picture Butte Extended Family Photos [Joanne & Frank]

Picture Butte extended family photos

Frank and Joanne got their three children and their families together for Picture Butte extended family photos at their farm house. Each set of little kids was so excited to spend a morning playing with their cousins. When it wasn’t their turn for photos, they could be found running around with each other.

The family farm was such a meaningful location to do their photos. In addition to growing up there, most of the family lives very close by so they have a lot of special memories at the farm. Frank and Joanne are so proud of the life they have built for their family and it really showed in their interactions with their grandchildren.
