Zosia’s baby photos

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

After both the family and I rescheduled our sessions thanks to cold after cold all winter, I was finally able to meet little Zosia! She is an absolutely cutie and has such striking blue eyes just like her big brother! She was very patient with us and in a great mood during the session, and when she finally got sick and tired of us changing and posing her, she quickly fell into such a dreamy peaceful sleep, which was also pretty darn cute :) (more…)

Maternity photos with a Vegas twist

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Last year when I went to Vegas to attend WPPI, I was standing in line waiting for Jerry Ghionis’ platform class and started talking to the girl in front of me. What a small world it was; she was from Calgary! I hadn’t seen Stephanie since meeting her then, but we agreed we’d definitely get together in Vegas again this year (don’t worry, I’ll have a post coming about that soon enough!).

This year found her with a baby in her belly, so we decided some Vegas maternity photos were in order! The Vegas strip has a million fantastic photo locations that always get the gears in my head going, but I just couldn’t make it past the hallway to the convention center at MGM! The colorful walls called to me…

Stephanie was willing to strip down in front of all the other photographers walking by, and it was fun stopping for everyone who was chimping the back of my camera to see what we were up to! It was so much fun and challenging working in a totally different environment for maternity photos; usually I prefer to use a lot of natural light and give the photos more of a soft feel, but if you’ve been in any of the casinos in Vegas, you know they are very dark and very dramatic! My mom acted as my lighting assistant with my single strobe (I wanted to travel light – no pun intended), which made the shoot much easier, seeing as how I didn’t have a light stand with me ;)

Check out what a cutie Steph is… (more…)

Newborn photos with the family

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

Melissa, Joe, and little Maddison brought along their brand new baby Sawyer, all the way from the Crowsnest Pass, for some family pictures today! They are such a sweet, easy going family, especially Maddison who is just exploding with energy! Sawyer cried through most of the shoot, as many many many babies do, so I was happy we could catch him in those brief moments when we pulled his pacifier out :) (more…)

Maternity photos with Amy and her family

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

This afternoon I met such a sweet family! Amy, Tarek, little Zak, and big fuzzy Captain are expecting baby #2 next month and invited me over to take photos of their family just before the new addition comes. Amy and Tarek are a darling couple, Zak is adorable and full of energy, and of course I loved Captain because I loooooove big dogs! Needless to say, I had a great time! (more…)

Andrew & Alex

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

Today I photographed an absolutely adorable couple, Andrew and Alex, who have just come to Lethbridge to go to college. This photo shoot was his Christmas gift to her, which is such a sweet idea :) Their smiles were both so radiant, especially when they looked at each other.

Since it’s pretty chilly outside still, we shot in the lobby at the new Coast Hotel, which is absolutely gorgeous! It’s going to be hard not to overuse it this year but I will try my best to control myself ;) (more…)

Chase, Kristin, & James Family Photos

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Kristin, James, and little Chase came into Lethbridge today for some family photos just in time for Christmas. I went to high school with these parents, and it’s been a very long time since I’ve last seen them! It’s always neat to see how everyone has grown up since then :)

Chase started out the session like a model, totally at attention and saying, “Cheeeeese!”… then he started acting his age and wanted nothing to do with us, so we had to trick him into a few more photos ;) (more…)
