Pavan Park Late Autumn Family Photos [Lana & Jamie]

Pavan Park late autumn family photos

Each day in October last year was a total surprise for what the weather would do. The day before Lana and Jamie’s session we had snow, and for theirs it warmed up at the cost of a wind warning! We tucked ourselves deep into the river bottom to escape the wind and found the last few leaves before the wind took them all away. Their Pavan Park late autumn family photos had just enough colour left and tons of leaves to throw in the air for some fun action shots. Lana and Jamie have raised such a friendly family and they were so easy to work with. Being close to each other comes so naturally to them!

Pavan Park autumn morning family portraits

I love our annual tradition of photographing this part of my family. Nothing shows how much the girls have grown than comparing their photos side by side each year! Now that they’re both school age, they are awesome little models and rocked their hip attitude poses. We ended up doing gorgeous sun-kissed Pavan Park autumn morning family portraits after rescheduling from rain earlier in the weekend. It was such a fun morning, and their grandparents came along for a few photos at the beginning too!

Lethbridge Summertime Playful Family Photos [April & Tom]

Lethbridge playful family photos

April is a total sweetheart who I know through dance, and I was honoured when she asked me to photograph her family. They wanted the photos to be representative of the years they have lived in Lethbridge so we chose the High Level Bridge as a backdrop. It was also important to capture playful family photos with a lifestyle feel and April went all out! Her, Tom, and the boys came equipped with pool noodles and loaded water guns, ready to battle it out at the end of the session. I love all of the joy that came out during those photos!

Helen Schuler autumn family photos

After a blast of both cold and wind, we were worried about what would be left for the Helen Schuler autumn family photos with Madison and her parents. We were so happy to be met with beautiful, rich colours in the river bottom! Indian Battle Park looked stunning during golden hour and we found every pretty spot where the leaves had held on. Madison is such a sweet girl and was excellent at posing, whether we wanted her to be serious and thoughtful, or giggly and showing off her cute smile for mom and dad!

Lethbridge Summer Backyard Family Photos [Toni & David]

Lethbridge summer backyard family photos

Toni and David were able to celebrate a rare occasion – all of their daughters were in town at the same time, including their granddaughter! They took the opportunity to do Lethbridge summer backyard family photos at their home. It’s been a very long time since their last official family photo session so it was time for an update!

Their home in the heart of Lethbridge was meticulously maintained, allowing us to do all of the photos right at their property. Even the park near their home couldn’t entice us away!

This family is so full of joy when they are together. They took no coaxing at all to embrace each other, hug, and whip out silly faces as needed.

Dreamy Floral Light Painting Photography [Rain & Tuezday]

dreamy floral light painting portraits

A few years ago I came up with an idea to do some dreamy floral light painting photography at the Henderson Lake rose garden in Lethbridge. Some years the roses didn’t bloom all too well, while other years I never had enough free evenings. This year after seeing how gorgeous the roses were, I made it happen! I’ve worked with Tuezday as a model in the past, and her gorgeous daughter Rain has recently started modelling as well. I was eager to get Rain in front of my camera and had to get them together for this! Rain is already a natural at modelling and did fantastic holding long poses. These photos were done well after dark, requiring a flash light to focus and then using light painting to create this dreamy, fantasy effect.
