Leitch Collieries Engagement Session [Brittany & Donovan]

Leitch Collieries engagement session

I had an awesome time working with Brittany and Donovan and can’t wait to see how quirky their wedding will be! Since a mountain wedding would have been their second choice after Lethbridge, they met with me in the Crowsnest Pass for their Leitch Collieries engagement session and brought along their giant Bernese Mountain Dog, Murphy, who was on his best behavior for the whole shoot.

These two were awesome to work with and I loved that even when Brittany tried to be serious, she couldn’t resist smiling huge around Donovan. They have such a romantic feel around each other!

Lethbridge Autumn Horse Portraits [Stephanie]

Lethbridge autumn horse portraits

I got to meet Stephanie in the last bit of fall colors for some Lethbridge autumn horse portraits at the Therapeutic Riding Association where she keeps her gorgeous horses. Steph was going to be donating Dallas to the association and wanted some portraits with him first, and wanted longer session with her girl Maui too!

Dallas was super laid back and easy to quickly work with, but Maui REALLY wanted to go hang out with her friends instead and took a little more coaxing. She is definitely an opinionated horse ;) Luckily we took care of all of her riding photos before she changed her mind about wanting to model for us.

Steph looks so happy while she works with her horses and there’s no hiding how much she loves them.

Teen Girl Portraits in Taber [Tayler]

teen girl portraits in Taber

I’ve known Tayler for a little over a year from dance and always thought she was one of the nicest people I have ever met. Now that I have visited her family and witnessed their love of animals, I see I was right! I was able to photograph the beautiful Tayler this autumn for her yearly photos and we spent all our time playing with their horses, dogs, and many rescued cats, all of whom loyally followed us around looking for love and attention.

Her family has a beautiful acreage near Taber full of awesome old trucks, large trees, and plenty of room for the animals to play. Tayler was such a natural in front of the camera that I was able to keep throwing cats at her and still keep a good pace ;)

Summer Evening Family Photos [Lucas, Michelle & Joe]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portrait photography
(zoomie photo bomb!)

Michelle, Joe, Lucas, and their fur baby Bear met me for some summer evening family photos, deep in the mosquito infested parks of Lethbridge! Aside from having to swat at mosquitoes, it was such a beautiful evening down by the University of Lethbridge lake. Lucas and Bear both had a great time playing in the trees, and Bear eventually gave up on photos for a nice cool swim! They are such a sweet family and clearly love their little boy so much. They had no trouble making him smile and laugh when they played with him!

Early Spring Coulee Portraits [Jenae & Derrick]

Early spring coulee portraits with dogs

Jenae and Derrick brought along their gorgeous blonde dogs for some early spring coulee portraits this April in Indian Battle Park here in Lethbridge. It took two tries… our first scheduled day saw rain and we decided to postpone, so of course that meant the rain totally cleared up in time for when the photos would have been! It was all for the best though because we did early evening portraits instead and the light was absolutely beautiful. All of the golden colors of the sun and grass perfectly complimented Jenae’s long blonde hair and, of course, the fur of their golden retrievers!

Derrick and Jenae are so sweet together and are a really laid back couple. You can tell it’s not just in front of the camera because their dogs Ayisha and Nala also radiate this calmness. It was so easy taking their photos! :)

Lethbridge Winter Adult Family Photos [Keltie, Heath, and Jasmyn]

Lethbridge Winter Adult Family Photos

Just in time before the blizzard! Keltie, Heath, and Jasmyn got together with me for their Christmas family photos this past winter and brought along their fur babies Louie and Sophie. The family was so wonderfully coordinated and looked gorgeous :) They picked such a great color scheme of red, gray, and black to pop out against the subdued winter landscape, and the University of Lethbridge lake was a perfect spot.

Even though the dogs were over-excited by visiting a new place, I was happy to find they thought all of my sound effects were very interesting and were easy to get looking at me! They had a few frightful moments (I AM pretty big next to a Chihuahua!) but were pretty easy to calm down with cuddles. (more…)
