Fun Coaldale Couples Session [Marianne & Tom]

Fun Coaldale couples session with couple holding owl

I can now say I’ve done portrait photography involving eagles and owls! Marianne works at the Alberta Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale and with it being off-season we had special access to the whole place to do a fun Coaldale couples session with her and her boyfriend Tom.

They were so easy to work with and the centre made for an amazing backdrop, plus it didn’t hurt that Marianne’s not afraid to handle giant birds of prey! We were first able to pick out a gorgeous Bald Eagle, and then visited the owl sanctuary for a Great Horned Owl. The eagle showed off his awesome wingspan, though the owl was a little more reserved and decided it was better to watch out for the resident cat who followed us around for attention. Tom was very brave taking a turn holding the large bird! (more…)

Claire | Lethbridge Baby Photos

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Now here’s an independent baby! Even though she’s only a few months old, cutie Claire is already trying to roll around, push herself up, and do things her way. She definitely let us know when she wasn’t pleased with us, but a few cuddles from mom and a glimpse out the window always gave her the encouragement to get through the next set of photos.

Claire’s momma is super talented and has knitted all kinds of cute things for her to wear! This baby likes being warm, so her favorite seemed to be her big colorful booties :) (more…)

Valerie & Jonathan’s Coaldale Wedding Reception

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Valerie and Jonathan, who you might remember from their engagement session last autumn, had an intimate wedding in Cuba this winter and then returned for an evening reception with their local friends and family. Cam and I came along to capture the spirit of the event and take some family photos, since most of their family had been unable to attend the wedding itself.

They held their wedding reception in the Coaldale Community Hall, which is just so delightfully white and crisp looking – a gorgeous contrast to their purple wedding colors. Everyone was a lot of fun and let me kidnap them for most of the time for photos :) (more…)

Chelsey & Eric

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

This last very beautiful Saturday I got to shoot the wedding of Eric and Chelsey (Julie’s bridesmaid) and had such a great time…. I anticipated it would be so much fun, and I was not let down at all! These two are young, totally in love, and (my personal favorite) a little bit silly, which all amounted to such great moments for me to capture! We worked super fast to fit in all the wonderful ideas we had, and ran totally on time all day – they even had time for a few spins on the ferris wheel!


Birds of Prey Centre

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Last year we were asked in Photo Club to donate any photos of “Albertan animals” to the Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale for a photo exhibit they were putting on. My gopher photo was one of the images chosen, so I was given a free guest pass for this year, which I finally used recently.

I wasn’t as intrigued as last year, as I exhausted the photos I could take that time around (opting to take more “noble” looking photos of the birds), so I spent much less time there on this visit. It didn’t help that I felt too impatient to wait for the flight demonstration, after which I could hold an owl again! However, I was pleasantly surprised with some of the photos I captured… all animals can be quite amusing if you watch them long enough!
