Lethbridge Christmas pet photos with Santa

Our Santa Paws photos looked a little different this year with Coronavirus, but we found new ways to make it work! Santa came to visit us at the Bone & Biscuit location in Crossings in west Lethbridge wearing a very festive mask. We safely spaced out all of our pet families with appointment times, and loved it so much that we’ll do it again! Our more anxious dogs got to have more time to sniff Santa without a bunch of other dogs waiting and watching.

This year all money raised was in support of Windy City Canine Rescue. We were visited by 60 dogs, 4 cats, and broke our average of one dog peeing on the floor with more than 3 accidents! Luckily, Santa did not get peed on this year, and thanks to his mask, you couldn’t tell if a dog had tugged on his beard a little too hard. (However, Santa WAS knocked out of his chair at least twice by excited pooches.)

We saw the return of quite a few favourites from last year (including the small crying boy who, sure enough, still cried at the sight of Santa), and hope to see everyone again next Christmas!

pet photos with Santa in Lethbridge

It’s always wonderful when Santa Paws comes to town! We continued our new annual tradition of pet photos with Santa at the Bone & Biscuit location in Crossings in west Lethbridge. This year we raised $700 for Misty Creek Dog Rescue!

We had a few repeat visitors from last year, plus lots of new whiskered faces. Our smallest visitor was Buttons the hamster, while our largest (and by far the most terrified) was the Great Dane puppy. We only had one hissing cat (pictured below), one crying child (also pictured below), and one potty accident (fortunately NOT pictured below).

Thank you to everyone who came to visit Santa and support this great cause!

Christmas Pyjama Family Photos in Lethbridge [Elaine & Floyd]

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.

indoor Lethbridge Christmas family photos

I have been photographing Bob and Mieke’s family for nearly a decade now but haven’t seen them in a while as some of their children have moved away. This year they had everyone return come home for an early holiday celebration and called me over to the house to capture the event through indoor Lethbridge Christmas family photos. Some of the kids were much bigger since the last time I photographed the family, plus there were a bunch of new little faces! The cousins love spending time together while Mieke and Bob beam with pride over their grandchildren. Thank you for bringing me into your home and letting me capture your family’s memories after all these years!
