Indoor Family Christmas Photos [Elora, Thomas & Darby]

indoor family Christmas photos

It was great to see Elora, Darby and Thomas again for their indoor family Christmas photos at their home in Lethbridge. This will be the last family session with just the three of them as they are welcoming baby number two into the house in a couple months. Thomas joked that not only have I documented their family growing, I have also documented his hair growing! I insisted he better have a waist length beard the next time they do family photos ;)

Elora was adorable in her pretty red dress, which looked so great against their Christmas tree. She was so tolerant of all the silly ways we were propping her up but when she did get fussy, a little bit of singing from her dad and cuddles from mom cheered her right back up.

Lethbridge extended family Christmas photos

It means so much when families invite me into their homes during their limited reunion time together. The Major family had all of their children and grandchildren down in Lethbridge for the holidays and decided it was a great time to get some extended family Christmas photos. This family is hilarious and I loved all the goofy photos they wanted to do (each serious photo needed a goofy equivalent, of course!). Their interactions are so amazing and they really feed off each other’s creative energy.

Family Christmas Pet Photos [Taylore & Kelly]

family Christmas pet photos

Taylore, Kelly, Maid Marian the cat, and Bjork the Icelandic Sheepdog (perfect name, right?) were due for their family Christmas pet photos and rather than trying to wrangle the dog and cat themselves, I got to help them out this year! They are a cute little family and the animals were awesome sports in wearing their Christmas sweaters, even if it took a bit of wrestling to make it happen.

Bjork and Marian have such different personalities; Bjork is outgoing and exceptionally friendly to everyone, and Maid Marian is cautious and worried, but the two of them are still the best of friends. I was told Bjork is more of a favorite than the humans are!

Lethbridge Christmas family photos outdoors in winter, hillbilly theme

So fun! Lori and her family decided to do a hillbilly theme for their Christmas photo session once everyone made the journey into Lethbridge. I loved their moonshine bottles, the old style slingshot, and their creative hats (with some Santa hats and tiaras thrown in for good measure)! (more…)

The Annandale House | Lethbridge Christmas Photos

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Over the next few months, I’ll be posting some of my favorite photos I took during my contract with the City of Lethbridge. Though I always loved looking at this house, last year was the first time I actually stopped, got out of the car, and took photos of it! The Annandale House on 13th Street South is actually a Lethbridge Historic site, so this was a learning experience for me. Driving by does not do it justice as their yard is filled with numerous Christmas decorations that you can only see from the sidewalk. There is such a great presence around this house at Christmas :) (more…)

Desi and Chelsea, silly Christmas photos

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

I’ve been dying to post these photos, but since they were a surprise Christmas gift I had to wait till now. Desi and Chelsea came to me to do some cheesy Christmas photos, Sears style. Since I used to work there for a few years while I was in school, I knew just the poses they needed. This was the most fun I think I’ve ever had on a photo session! We could barely get through the session because we were all laughing so hard. Both of them hit up the thrift stores beforehand to get some tacky sweaters, and practiced the cheesiest smiles they could come up with for days before. I especially love that Desi parted his hair down the middle. (more…)
