Henderson Lake Morning Family Photos [Nic & Robin]

Henderson Lake morning family photos

I love that Nic and Robin have an annual tradition of updating their family photos. They’ll always have memories of how big the kids were year after year, and it has given me a chance to watch their family grow since I first started working with them before their wedding. They came to Lethbridge this year for some Henderson Lake morning family photos at Gunnery Point. It was a gorgeous spring day and we squeezed the photos in just early enough to beat the heat.

I’m always so amazed at how well behaved and happy their kids are. Lucas never seemed to hit the “terrible twos” but instead has always been smiley and great at posing. Now that he’s heading out of that age range, he’s just as awesome and his sister is following in his footsteps. It’s not often you find a one year old who can smile on command, but Olivia has already mastered that! The kids did so great practising their patience as we circled around the playground during the session. They were rewarded at the end with some play time.

Alberta Cattle Dog Rescue Photos [Millie]

Alberta cattle dog rescue photos

What a sweetheart! Millie was found left behind when her family moved and didn’t bring her with them. Taken in by AARCS, this sweet cattle dog was soon sent to her foster home in Lethbridge. Within a week, Millie’s confidence sky rocketed! She quickly learned (or re-learned) how to walk on a leash and became a sucker for love and attention. She was so easy to photograph with her laid-back personality. She’d sit anywhere for a treat and stay there until she decided she needed snuggles again. She is such a well-behaved dog that we did these photos at the Dragon Boat Festival and it was no big deal to her! With her adorable spotted coat and attentive pointed ears, I don’t think she’ll be looking for a forever home for long.

Millie is available through the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).

Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park 2018

This year I was invited to have a booth at the annual Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park and despite the rain, it was so much fun! So many people came out in support of Windy City Canine Rescue and braved the weather for a hot dog and visiting lots of puppies. A Better Chance Animal Rescue was at the event with their newest litter available for adoption and the puppies loved the attention! One was an escape artist who kept the volunteers on their toes through the entire event. Many Muddy Paws did a fun demo showing off their students’ running, jumping, and tracking skills.

Norland Estate Wedding Portraits in Lethbridge [Robyn & Wayne]

Robyn and Wayne, Norland Estate wedding portraits

Robyn and Wayne chose a beautiful, warm spring day to have their wedding. After they were married at the Lethbridge NRC Church, they and their familes joined us for Norland Estate wedding portraits. The property was so lush with all the fresh spring growth. We finished off their portraits at Henderson Lake to make use of the gorgeous lilac bushes.

They included so many classic and romantic elements in their wedding day. Robyn’s dress had beautiful lace sleeves and details, and her bouquet featured soft pastel colours. Wayne wore a well tailored navy suit with black trim and they brought along a family member’s burgandy vintage Volvo car as their wedding day ride. The Norland and this car went so well together!

Both Robyn and Wayne have such calm, kind personalities and a beautiful gentleness together. Whenever they thought they weren’t being watched, they were constantly giggling together :)

Congratulations, Robyn and Wayne!

2018 Lethbridge MS Walk

2018 Lethbridge MS Walk at Henderson Lake

I was honoured to be asked to return for my fourth year of photographing the Lethbridge MS Walk, held by the Lethbridge MS Society. This year’s walk was held at Henderson Lake again, giving participants beautiful views of the water and Canadian Geese during their walk. This was probably the warmest year they’ve ever had for the walk and had amazing attendance as a result, including both newcomers and long time participants.

As usual, I had an amazing time photographing the event. The organizers do a fantastic job making sure all participants and volunteers and healthy and looked after. I had a golf cart friend again who sped me around the participants (and around the many, MANY geese at the lake) so we could capture as many moments as possible during the walk and at the festival area before and after.

Lethbridge Research Centre Outdoor Wedding Ceremony [Krysty & Kole]

Krysty and Kole, Lethbridge Research Centre outdoor wedding ceremony

After Krysty styled her engagement session so beautifully, I was excited to see what she had in store for her wedding day! Her and Kole carefully planned out each beautiful detail of the day, from their lemonade stand to keep their guests refreshed at the ceremony to their 200 sparkler exit at the end of the evening. Continuing with the cycling theme, they featured gold-painted bicycle wheels as decorations, Kole wore cufflinks shaped like bikes, and they rented a tandem bicycle for their wedding photos.

Their Lethbridge Research Centre outdoor wedding ceremony could not have taken place on a nicer day! They had warm sunshine and no wind, while just a hint of the autumn colours were starting to appear. Their ceremony was so emotional with each of them fighting back tears through their huge grins.

Krysty’s attention to detail gave us so much creativity during portraits (they also rented a super cool large vintage couch!) and their wedding party made the day so much fun. We even took a detour to visit the Love and Records music festival. Kole and Krysty were just as photogenic as at their engagement session so they made our job pretty easy ;)

By reception time, everyone was ready to party. The dance floor was never empty and grandma danced more than anyone else there! Krysty and Kole totally nailed their first dance choreography after their many dance lessons… even though it was Krysty’s first time ever doing it in the wedding dress.

Congratulations, Krysty and Kole!
