Indian Battle Park Fall Family Photography [Ross & April]

Indian Battle Park fall family photography

April, Ross, and their two boys brought their love of Halloween into their Indian Battle Park fall family photography session. I asked them to bring along a few props and was delighted with the results! The amazing pumpkin was made by April, and since the Michael mask fit her the best, mom had the honour of being the creepy one lurking in their photos. (April revealed she had the hugest grin during those photos, which you absolutely cannot see!). This family is so theatrical, making them a blast to work with.

Lethbridge Halloween Themed Wedding [Paul & Stephanie]

Stephanie & Paul, Lethbridge Halloween themed wedding photos

Halloween is my favourite holiday so I jumped at the opportunity to second shoot for Melanie at Photo Expressions when she told me a Lethbridge Halloween themed wedding was in the works! Stephanie and Paul definitely agree with me about what an awesome holiday it is :) They loaded up on decorations last year when the Halloween stores had clearance in preparation for their big day the next year.

They started out the day in traditional wedding attire but chose Halloween colours as their accents. We had a gorgeous day to do photos out at Nicholas Sheran Lake, and even managed to find a few leaves left at the end of the month! Stephanie and Paul make each other laugh so hard that they almost collapse. There were very few moments when either of them didn’t have a huge grin on their faces.

Their reception was a costume party held at the Lethbridge Hungarian Club, and nearly every guest got in the spirit and dressed up! There were so many amazing costumes and everyone was so happy and energetic (I’m sure the Halloween candy bar helped with that).

Dia de los Muertos [Tuezday Sugar Skull Photos]

sugar skull, Dia de los Muertos photos in Lethbridge

As a personal project before Halloween, I recruited model Tuezday Kabel & makeup artist Jill Renner for a Día de los Muertos themed photoshoot with sugar skull face painting. These ladies rocked it! We coordinated the skull paint with the autumn colors outside and found the most colorful splashes we could in Indian Battle Park.

Terrifying Tami, the Scary Clown [Personal Project]

Terrifying Tami, scary clown photos

It’s my favorite time of year, Halloween season! Not much is scarier than a creepy clown (at least in my opinion), so I felt some scary clown photos were in order this year!

When I saw Tami do a cartwheel at a previous modeling collaboration, I knew we had to do something creepy and weird, and the clown thing just fell into place. With Katt Panic’s magic touch, Tami transformed into a clown much scarier than I could have imagined. (I loved Tami’s reaction when we finally showed her the finished face!) I love that Tami has such colorful hair as it was the perfect touch to complete the look.

Halloween | Personal Project

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

October is one of my favorite months… warm days with chilly hot chocolate nights, crunchy colorful leaves and, of course, Halloween, which means lots of horror movies and listening to Dead Man’s Bones! It’s been far too long since I’ve worked on a self-portrait project and I’ve been inspired by all the amazing levitation photos out there, plus I wanted to do my own haunted series. I set out on one of the ridiculously windy afternoons we’ve had and luckily was only interrupted by a few pedestrians, though I almost blew away a few times! I’ve taken on a few new genres of dance this year so that was a big inspiration on a few of the images. Psh, who needs stools and ladders for levitation photo composites when you can do it with your body alone? ;) (more…)

Mary is Haunted [Personal Project]

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

The concept for this photo shoot has been rotting (har har) away in my brain since January. During the winter I couldn’t stop listening to Dead Man’s Bones – that’s Ryan Gosling’s band, by the way – and was in love with the eerie, ethereal visions and ideas that popped into my head when I was listening to it. Finally this took shape, and I knew Marie and a white dress would be perfect, but I had to patiently wait for the snow to melt and the ground to warm up so that having her out there in bare feet wouldn’t be too torturous. Mary was as amazing as last time, and I gave her an even harder workout than when I had made her jump across dirt roads repeatedly.

Normally for personal work I do zombies, so I guess I just can’t step outside of the supernatural ;)

p.s. Only one photo is a composite. Can you guess which one? (more…)
