Henderson Lake Winter Grandchildren Photos [Betty & Doug]

Henderson Lake winter grandchildren photos

Betty has never had photos taken with just her, Doug, and their grandchildren. Her daughter surprised her with a special Henderson Lake winter photo session to do just that! I was told she was so excited even early on in the process when she started planning their outfits. It was pretty cold out in the snow but they braved the weather just along enough to go coatless for their photos. We had so much fun and the Lethbridge park was a perfect winter wonderland.

Best of 2018 – A Year of Portraits from Photography by Tanya Plonka

best Lethbridge portrait photography of 2018

Part 2 of the year in review features the portrait side of things! This year marked a few firsts, including my first bunny session and my first family dressed in Batman costumes. I had so much fun with every group I worked with. Thank you for letting me bring your personalities out in your photo sessions!

This year for portraits I stayed pretty local in Lethbridge, but also took a few special trips to the Crowsnest Pass, Waterton, Claresholm, and Magrath. The yearend marks a very special occasion – the 10th anniversary of when I started my business! So many of the people in these photos have been with me for years and I couldn’t have made it this far without their love and support.

I hope you enjoy looking through our best portraits of 2018 as much as I liked choosing them!

Best of 2018 – A Year of Weddings from Photography by Tanya Plonka

best Lethbridge wedding photography of 2018

2018 was a great year! Cam and I spent so much of the year with people totally in love and the joy was contagious. These probably aren’t truly our best wedding photos from the last year, but they definitely made me smile going back through the memories!

This year we saw a bride ride a horse for the first time ever in her wedding dress, photographed through smoky skies, and laughed at far more hilarious kids than any past year. Like, so many kids let loose this year that there must have been some memo passed around at the beginning of the wedding season.

Even though I picked most of these out of my blog edits, I made it a goal to choose photos that have never been on social media! There’s a good chance you’ve never seen most of these. Unless you’re my mom – she reads and likes pretty much everything I post. (Hi, Mom!)

I hope you enjoy looking through our best wedding photos of 2018 as much as I liked choosing them!

Lethbridge lifestyle photography

This summer I teamed up with a local organization to build up their image library with Lethbridge lifestyle photography. After running a model call on my website, several families were selected to take part in the project. I got to work with such a diverse group of people, from friends to past clients to some new faces! We ended up with so many natural and joyful images for the organization to choose from. Here are some of my favorites!

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.

Henderson Lake Children’s Photography [Tawana]

Henderson Lake children's photography

Tawana was celebrating his third birthday and his parents wanted to capture his personality at this point in his life. His mom warned me that a lot of that personality involved excitedly running around! Sure enough, he loved sprinting at the park and I think his mom and dad needed a good nap after all that chasing!

It was a beautiful day for Henderson Lake children’s photography other than the wind. Luckily Tawana loves the wind and it just made him want to run more! He was adorable in all of his outfits. I love when really little kids wear adult styles!
