Designed To Dwell family photos in Lethbridge

Blizzards and shutdowns couldn’t keep this family apart for their parents’ 35th anniversary celebration! Henk and Joanne’s children planned out a special celebratory reunion weekend, part of which included Designed to Dwell family photos.

The beautiful venue definitely came in handy to keep everyone warm during the blizzard that swept through Lethbridge that weekend. Despite the bad roads, everyone was able to make it down to visit their parents. Even luckier was being able to have their reunion before we all went into self-isolation across the province!

Lethbridge Large Family Photos [Roy & Woutera’s Extended Family]

Lethbridge large family photos

2020 definitely seemed to be the year for Lethbridge large family photos! An in-law from one of my previous extended family sessions that year rounded up her family and they got together to celebrate their father Roy’s 60th birthday, as well as welcome a new baby into the family!

Woutera and Roy loved a nature look so we used one of the big fallen trees in Indian Battle Park as the base for posing. This is always a win for multi-generational sessions because the kids love climbing the logs!

Once the kids’ photos were finished, all the adults had their turn getting photos with their parents.

55th anniversary photo session

Hilda and Basil’s daughter Margaret wanted to do something special for her parents to celebrate their 55 years of marriage, so she arranged these west Lethbridge anniversary photos for them.

Both Hilda and Basil have lived very interesting lives. Hilda is a published poet and Basil used to be a professional soccer player! He was able to bring a soccer ball to the session and was very proud to show off the Brazilian flag in some of the photos.

Margaret hopped in for a few family photos, but most of the session focused on the lovely couple. Margaret and I were grinning and giggling at how cute her parents are! They are a perfect example of finding someone who can still make you laugh in 55 years.

colourful summer family photos

Alina and Phil make it a priority to update their family photographs every few years. Their colourful summer family photos this year will be a great addition to the fun photo collage wall they have in their home. Their photo arrangement has lots of yellow accents and frames, so they dressed to match!

We started out in the Helen Schuler Nature Reserve during golden hour. Their session took place just before the summer heatwaves, so everything was such a lush vibrant green! The boys had a ton of fun climbing all the logs in between photos.

Indian Battle Park extended family photos

Marie and Ed celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary with Indian Battle Park extended family photos. We had planned to do this since the winter and weren’t quite sure until the last minute if it could be a go! Luckily everyone was able to get together to celebrate their parents and we had such a beautiful summer night to do the photos.

Each individual family had their photos taken while we waited for the full group to arrive. Considering how late in the day we started, the children all did amazing! We didn’t lose any to nap time and they loved played with their cousins and grandparents alongside the high level bridge.

St. Patrick’s Island Newborn Photos in Calgary [Daenerys]

St Patrick's Island newborn photos

When Daenerys arrived, her parents debated between bringing her to their hometown of Lethbridge for a photo session or staying at their new home together in Calgary. I’m so glad they chose the latter for her St. Patrick’s Island newborn photos because it was gorgeous there!

The park is conveniently next door to their neighbourhood of Inglewood. It wasn’t too busy when we went out, but it was a lovely warm day (perfect for diaper shots) with lots of lush greenery.

Daenerys loved going on the stroller ride to her photo spot. Any time she fussed, a quick bounce with her parents was all the movement she needed to calm down. She stayed awake for most of the newborn session so she could fully enjoy all the cuddles she received, but once we set off in the stroller again, she was quickly asleep!
