Coleman Summer Family Photos [Gerda & Jonathan]

Coleman summer family photos

Gerda and Jonathan wanted to go on a day trip adventure with their kids, so we decided to do Coleman summer family photos instead of sticking around the Lethbridge area! It was a really big deal to me to get to photograph them again and keep following as their family grows. The couple was celebrating their 11 year wedding anniversary and were one of the very earliest weddings I got to photograph!

Their family loves the Crowsnest Pass, so we travelled to the Miner’s Path to get beautiful forest shots. The location is very dog friendly as locals walk their dogs there, so it was perfect for their dog Bella the puggle to come along! The kids loved climbing on the fallen logs, finding the best sticks the pathway could offer, and chasing each other to get those sticks.

Surprise Maternity Announcement Photos [Jessica & Tyler]

surprise maternity announcement photos

Jessica and Tyler wanted to announce their pregnancy to Jessica’s family in a very memorable way. These surprise maternity announcement photos were disguised as a family session with Jessica’s parents. A few friends joined at the end to supposedly help with a photo for the couple’s wedding invitations. That’s when the big reveal came!

The couple travelled to Jessica’s hometown of the Crowsnest Pass to tell her parents the big news. She made the excuse that they needed updated family photos, so we spent the first part of the session doing just that! We went to the Miner’s Path with their dogs Trip and Chloe and acted like everything was totally normal. I had to try so hard not to laugh when Jessica’s mom told me the dogs were her grandkids because that’s all Jessica was giving her!

Springbreak Flower Farm Greenhouse Wedding [Hannah & Mark]

Hannah & Mark, Springbreak Flower Farm greenhouse wedding

Hannah and Mark’s Springbreak Flower Farm greenhouse wedding centred around their love of adventuring outdoors. They chose their mountain venue in the Crowsnest Pass and wore hiking boots with their wedding attire. Any adventure they’ve embarked on with hiking boots has worked out, so why not extend those good vibes to their marriage? :)

The couple opted to have a first look in the greenhouse before their early evening ceremony, and we visited the nearby waterfall for their portraits. Their hiking boots meant we could get right up to the falls.

After the outdoor ceremony, their reception started with speeches inside the greenhouse, and finished off the night with one of the most active dance floors we’ve seen!

They had such huge smiles on their faces through the entire day that we barely needed to direct them. It’s so amazing to see high school sweethearts have a love that flourishes into such a happy life together. They are such sweet, caring people surrounded by that same love from their family and friends, and we were so grateful they extended that warmness to us sharing the day with them.

Congratulations, Hannah and Mark!

Crowsnest Pass Extended Family Photos [Donna & Rob]

Crowsnest Pass extended family photos

Donna and Rob were gifted Crowsnest Pass extended family photos from their children. After a few blizzards forced us to reschedule and we waited for one more grandbaby to arrive, we were finally able to book a summer session. I’ve known this family since elementary school, though it’s expanded quite a bit since then!

Although the location was selected for how it looks, The Miner’s Path has been so special for photos for this group. I did one sister’s maternity photos and the other sister’s wedding photos there. I was happy to continue that tradition with the three generations. Plus he cousins loved playing in the forest together!

Tecumseh Road Family Photos [Dee & Rich]

Tecumseh Road family photos

Now that’s a view! When I arrived at their home, I wasn’t at all surprised why Dee and Rich decided to use their Christmas gift from their daughters for Tecumseh Road family photos in their own backyard. Their patio area had a perfect view of the mountain range and the river just past the highway in the Crowsnest Pass. They also had a cute little forest that hugged all the homes in their neighbourhood. We almost did this session in the winter but I’m so glad they waited, because the fresh spring green colour in the trees contrasted so nicely against the mountain vistas.

We included the girls’ partners in lots of the photos, but also focused on the original crew, including recreating a photo Dee had of the girls when they were young. Everyone had a great time, especially their dogs once they got to join in on the excitement!

Crowsnest Winter Engagement Photos [Ashley & Stefan]

Crowsnest winter engagement photos

Ashley and Stefan took a detour while on their way to visit family and made a special stop for Crowsnest winter engagement photos. We lucked out with a fresh snowfall just in time because even the Crowsnest Pass was looking a little brown and dry for this time of year!

The couple were involved with another wedding I’ve photographed, so it was so much fun to get to focus on them this time! They have such great energy and are so cute and snugly together.

We started with the Miner’s Path for a forest look then headed into the wind to get a mountain view. (At this point Stefan pondered why he let his hair grow long, ha ha.)

I can’t wait for their wedding!
