Lethbridge Spring Blossom Newborn Photos [Connor]

Lethbridge spring blossom newborn photos

It’s been a few years since I last saw Julie and Chad, and since then they’ve had an adorable new addition to the family! They used my mini sessions to do some Lethbridge spring blossom newborn photos of Connor. He’s not quite a newborn any more, but pretty close! He was adorable in his little bow-tie and was fascinated by all of the white flower petals falling around him. His mom and dad just gushed with happiness snuggling him!

Lethbridge Pink Blossom Family Mini Session [Jennifer & David]

Lethbridge pink blossom family mini session

The last time I photographed Jennifer and David’s family, it was just the three of them with Kalina. This time we had four with their newest family member, Erwin! As a special addition to their Lethbridge pink blossom family mini session, Grandma and Grandpa came along for a few photos. Kalina hardly left her grandma’s side, leading her around by the hand whenever they weren’t in photos together. Their grandparents were masters at getting them to laugh!

Indian Battle Park Extended Family Photography [The R & G Family]

Indian Battle Park extended family photography

This Indian Battle Park extended family photography session was a Christmas gift that was meant to take place outdoors back in December, but it was -30C the entire time the family was together! They made the wise decision to postpone until spring when everyone could actually be happy and comfortable in the photos. After a heavy rainfall earlier that day, everything was so green and fresh in the river bottom!

Three generations got together for this family session. The middle generation are part of a blended family, so they had both sets of their parents involved. Without my handy list of how everyone is related, it would have been impossible to tell sibling from cousin, sister from step sister, etc. Even all of the people who married into the family get along so comfortably with everyone that it’s hard to tell who is the sibling and who is the spouse! Everyone makes up one tightly knit family despite moving away, having children of their own, and seeing less of each other. This was such a great environment for the little kids who were happy to run to anyone there for comfort!

Best of 2018 – A Year of Portraits from Photography by Tanya Plonka

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

best Lethbridge portrait photography of 2018

Part 2 of the year in review features the portrait side of things! This year marked a few firsts, including my first bunny session and my first family dressed in Batman costumes. I had so much fun with every group I worked with. Thank you for letting me bring your personalities out in your photo sessions!

This year for portraits I stayed pretty local in Lethbridge, but also took a few special trips to the Crowsnest Pass, Waterton, Claresholm, and Magrath. The yearend marks a very special occasion – the 10th anniversary of when I started my business! So many of the people in these photos have been with me for years and I couldn’t have made it this far without their love and support.

I hope you enjoy looking through our best portraits of 2018 as much as I liked choosing them!

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.

Lethbridge Spring Blossom Maternity Photos [Andrea & Jeff]

Lethbridge spring blossom maternity photos

I went to university with Jeff back in the day so I was excited to hear he and Andrea were expecting a baby this spring! I took them out to my favourite location with pink flowers for their Lethbridge spring blossom maternity photos. Andrea was just glowing and chose a fantastic dress for showing off her baby bump.

We did these photos in a bit of rain because time was of the essence… Andrea was right at her due date and we couldn’t risk postponing! (Luckily she didn’t go into labour during the session!)
