Jessica Rabbit | Lethbridge Cosplay Photos

Lethbridge Jessica Rabbit cosplay photos

I love themed photo shoots so having an opportunity to photograph Amanda as Jessica Rabbit was super exciting. Jessica is such a classic character with so much charisma, and I had to make the photos sensual with a little pinup while still pulling off an over the top cartoon character. Amanda really brought the character to life, and I have to give a huge thank you to the Owl Acoustic Lounge for letting us use a corner of their space that afternoon as it was absolutely perfect as a backdrop. Makeup was once again done by the talented Katt Panic (I love how she cleverly hid the real eyebrows). (more…)

AFI photo project, Medicate, Lethbridge black and white

After a very busy summer, I’m finally able to share the third installment in my larger AFI-inspired photo project, this time for Medicate. (You can read more about the project here.)

We needed a spot where dumping gold paint wouldn’t be an issue, so Marcella and I headed out to the edge of the city for this and the blackness of the prairies at night was perfect for the black and white theme. Marcella totally rocked this with her golden locks!

Lethbridge maternity photos, family with small dog

Kelsey and Tony are expecting their first baby very soon and wanted to get some photos to celebrate! Along with future not-so-big brother Tequila, they met me in the evening for their session and we got to try a few dramatic images once it got dark out. We had a great time and perfect weather, and I can’t wait to meet their new little baby! (more…)

Garry’s Birthday Party | Lethbridge Event Photography

Great Gatsby themed birthday party in Lethbridge

When Garry celebrated his 50th birthday, his friends and family threw him a wonderful themed birthday party: The Great Garry, all in Roaring 20s style! I was so impressed with the attention to detail that went into the party and that all the guests ran with the theme and dressed up. Everyone clearly had a lot of fun and I love how outgoing and joyful Garry and his wife Rita are together. Happy birthday, Garry! (more…)

Waterton Mountain Getaway Wedding [Michael & Ashley]

Ashley and Mike, Waterton Mountain Getaway Wedding

We love Waterton and were so excited to go there again for Michael and Ashley’s Waterton mountain getaway wedding. Their event was held at the beautiful Bayshore Inn, with lots of help from Louise at Perfect Day Ventures.

We had so much fun spending the day with them; we were pretty much in non-stop laughter the whole time. They (and their bridal party members) are such warm, kind people and are a complete joy to be around. :)

I definitely appreciated their commitment to the photos. Halfway through our portraits the rain storm hit, but once it let up a little and we wrapped our gear in plastic they were totally fine with going back outside and getting a little damp! We only had to cut things short once lightning was striking around us (yikes!). Luckily the clouds parted in the evening and we gave them a little break from their reception for some gorgeous evening portraits.

Congratulations, Michael & Ashley! (more…)

The Days of the Phoenix | Personal Project

AFI photo project, The Days of the Phoenix, Lethbridge creative lighting portraits

It’s time to finally introduce a project I’ll be working on over the next year, a disjointed set of images tied together only by the music that inspired them.

Each photo shoot is inspired, in some way, by a single AFI music video. I will keep going until each video of theirs, even if I don’t like the original, is complete. These are the only rules.

This project has been fermenting in my brain for quite a while, and after a desire built up to focus on learning more creative lighting, I decided it was definitely time to start! I have been a huge fan of AFI for many years and find their music to be so emotional and creativity-inducing (I usually play them when I need to power through photo editing, sew bellydance costumes, or anything else that needs a lot of creative input in very little time). Many of their videos have really interesting visuals and impactful lighting that I couldn’t resist dissecting. I’m also doing it to cope with the seemingly endless hiatus they’ve been on!

This particular photo shoot was the second I photographed, but the first I wanted to post. “The Days of the Phoenix” was the very first song I ever heard from AFI and therefore seemed fitting for the introduction.
