Virtual Assistant Branding Session [Brooke from Out of Sight Online]

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

virtual assistant branding session

For this virtual assistant branding session, it was all about the woman behind the business! Brooke is the owner of Out of Sight Online and for this photoshoot we focused on her and her personality she brings to her clients.

Brooke used to be a general purpose virtual assistant but has recently shifted her business to focus primarily on podcasters. This was where she found her passion for what she does and her favourite clients!

The great thing about being a virtual assistant is the ability to work from anywhere (which usually means at home), but this also meant Brooke didn’t have a proper “office” space for us to use for her at work images. For that we turned to Jonny Bean Coffee in Lethbridge, whose bright and modern space was perfect for Brooke’s brand. (Plus we got to have tasty drinks during that part of the session.)

For Brooke’s branding photos we wanted to show that she gets things done, is approachable, and offers a very one on one service. I kept everything bright and airy while pulling in the blue and gold accent colours from her website and logo, while Brooke found a perfect wardrobe to match.

Medical Office Branding Session [Sport & Spine Physiotherapy]

Tuesday, August 18th, 2020

medical office branding session

This medical office branding session at Sport & Spine Physiotherapy in Lethbridge was a perfect mix of headshots, features of the building, and action shots of the services they provide.

Sandra, the owner of the business, had two goals in mind for her branding session. First, she wanted to update their website with personalized photos rather than stock images. Second, she had been in the recruitment process for young new doctors when COVID hit and prevented her from attending job fairs. Instead, she hoped to clearly demonstrate what her clinic offered through photography that could be used during recruitment.

Physiotherapy is all about actionable tasks in healing so it was important to show Sandra at work. We brought in a couple clients to model and try out the various services Sandra provides at the clinic. It was really interesting seeing what a huge range of techniques she has at her disposal and I couldn’t resist trying a few of the mobility tests myself!

The clinic is so bright, colourful, and modern that it made my job very easy, plus our models were fantastic and willing to do anything Sandra threw their way.

Graduation Photos and some Tae Kwon Do [T’s Grad Session]

Thursday, April 2nd, 2020

Lethbridge Tae Kwon Do photos

The year before, T and his sister surprised their parents with family photos. During the session, they lamented that they didn’t bring any of his Tae Kwon Do gear to celebrate the fact he was now a black belt!

The time finally come to focus on all of his accomplishments when he graduated from college.

We started out with some cap and gown convocation photos in Indian Battle Park, as well as some more casual pictures without the grad formal wear on. Then it was time to show off his Tae Kwon Do skills! We headed downtown to somewhere with enough space to go through his patterns plus some different levels to show off his other various skills. (It should come as no surprise he also dabbles in parkour.)

T is already teaching this martial art in youth classes and hopes to one day be a teacher now that he has focused his schooling on physical education. Judging by the skills he showed off during his photoshoot, he should have no trouble achieving his goals!

Celebrating High School Graduation like a Hollywood Starlet [Torrince]

Lethbridge high school graduation

Torrince enjoys the company of her family, some close friends and the limelight at her Lethbridge graduation celebration

Torrince’s hair was swept up with tiny jewels sparkling inside it. Her makeup was smooth, her eyes smokey, and when I asked her to strike a pose, she moved with ease – like she’d been doing it her whole life! Like a young, Hollywood starlet, Torrince was a natural in front of the camera, and as her parents (dad, Quentin and step-mom, April) proudly looked on, it was all they could do to keep from tearing up throughout their daughter’s high school graduation portrait session – which did happen once or twice :).

An Explosion of World Dance and Music, our 2020 Lethbridge show!

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

Ammena Dance Company vintage 50s themed dance show poster

This year was both fun and challenging coming up with a vintage 50s inspired feel for the poster for An Explosion of World Dance and Music, the annual dance show put on by Ammena Dance Company. Our original location we had planned to use fell through in a big way. Luckily one of the dancers in the show had a bit of a time capsule bar in their basement!

The retro vibe was inspired by a few specific pieces in the show, and you’ll see the costume pictured in the Grease number! The rest of the show has many of the usual dance styles people have come to expect from the studio, such as Latin, dancehall, bellydance, jazz, African, and many more. Come check it out!

Lethbridge Professional Wrestling Photos [Kenn Stevens]

Lethbridge professional wrestling photos

It’s not every day I get to take Lethbridge professional wrestling photos, but this summer I found myself capturing the promotional photos for local wrestler Kenn Stevens. (This is such new ground for me that I’m not even sure what category to put this under on my blog!) Lethbridge may not have a big wrestling scene, but Kenn is the now the third person I know who takes part in this amazing form of entertainment! I have a couple friends who retired from the sport some time again so I’m glad to see it alive and doing well in new wrestlers.
