Newborn Baby Session in Lethbridge [Barrett & Family]

Lethbridge newborn photography

Barrett arrived for his newborn baby session just before Christmas. This was a perfect excuse for his grandparents to visit for an early holiday! They were great helpers in the background, assisting with changing him and taking care of his big sister Addison when she needed a break.

I visited their home for his newborn photography. Each family member got to take turns snuggling him in photos, though Addison quickly decided it was more fun to go party with grandma and grandpa downstairs. Barrett flashed us his big, vibrant eyes through the whole photoshoot.

playful Aperture Park maternity session

Kristen celebrated the upcoming arrival of her second child with an Aperture Park maternity session. The whole family came along for photos. Even though Kristen was supposed to be the centre of attention, big sister to be Addison and their dog Rupert kind of stole the show. These two little ones were so adorable and so excited to be spending a nice autumn evening in the park!

Nicholas Sheran Family Reunion Photos [Bonnie & Her Family]

Nicholas Sheran family reunion photos

For Bonnie’s birthday, her family traveled from far and wide to celebrate. After Ribfest changed their original location plans, they decided to have a Nicholas Sheran family reunion on the west side. Since much of the family is from south of Lethbridge, visiting the lake was a new experience for many of them and they were so happy with their choice!

After a picnic lunch, everyone changed into their photo clothes for a big group photo. Bonnie was thrilled being around her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren! She is so proud of her family. She definitely enjoyed being the focus of the party! Everyone made sure a steady stream of homemade cookies came her way.

After photos it was back to playtime and I stuck around to take candid photos of the family having fun and enjoying the super hot day at Nicholas Sheran Lake.

Children and Pet Photography in Lethbridge [Jacey and Her Dogs]

children and pet photography in Lethbridge

Jacey’s early Christmas gift from her parents was a pet session with her dogs, Stella and Gia. Stella, the tan coloured dog, happens to be Gia’s mother. Despite the age difference, Gia was the one on her best behaviour while Stella had the excitement of a puppy exploring Aperture Part in west Lethbridge.

We started out with more classic posed portraits while we still had the dogs’ attention. Once our safe photos were finished, it was time for action shots! Each dog has her own set of special tricks (Stella’s “gopher” pose and Gia’s dancing were the cutest from each). Jacey’s parents described her as “the dog whisperer” and she was able to get the dogs to do everything we needed for photos!

At the end of the session, both dogs got to let loose with rolling in the leaves and chasing sticks. They did so great considering how crazy the wind was that day. The only signs of it were in their wind-swept ears!

Late Autumn Pavan Park Photos [Danyel & Kim’s Family]

late autumn Pavan Park photos

Better late than never! Danyel and Kim had to postpone their annual family photos because of all the crazy weather this year. We finally got lucky with late autumn Pavan Park photos. Everything dried out enough that it looked mostly like fall again for a day!

The kids were great sports putting up with the cold temperatures. By the end of the portrait session, they had mastered the art of removing winter coats, smiling, and then quickly putting them back on.

It was great to catch up with Danyel and Kim again after their wedding a few years ago and meet their cute kids!

60th birthday celebration family photos

When both parents turn the big six-oh in the same year, you throw a party! Patty and John had their three generations come together for their 60th birthday celebration family photos. I was so excited to return to their beautiful farm for this session. All of their grandchildren had a great time playing together, with the adults, and on the swings (my favourite part every time!). We finished the session with some super fun props… they asked me if they would be too cheesy, and I insisted it was just the type of cheese I love ;)
