Lethbridge Lifestyle Photography [Model Call Families]

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!

Lethbridge Summertime Pet Photography [Melon from AARCS]

Lethbridge summertime pet photography

Melon is doing a great job learning how to be a good dog and got to practice her leash skills during her Lethbridge summertime pet photography session at Henderson Lake. She instantly wanted to cover me in kisses and rolled over, insisting I pet her belly. We had to take many belly petting breaks during the session to keep her happy! Despite her young age, she’s so chill and will be a great fit in any home that takes her.

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

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).
