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!)

Lethbridge pink blossom family photos

The spring blossom mini sessions I had this year were a great way for me to catch up with a bunch of my former wedding couples! I got to meet little Kieran for the first time when Erin and Ross brought him out for Lethbridge pink blossom family photos. They warned me that he doesn’t smile much, but we got so many smiles out of him for photos! The family was so nicely coordinated in outfits all featuring splashes of pink to go with the flowers.

Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden Wedding Ceremony [Mary & Dale]

Mary and Dale, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden wedding ceremony

I was honoured when a friend asked me to photograph her mother’s wedding. After their children were grown up, Mary and Dale found love in each other and organized a beautiful Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden wedding ceremony. Mary hadn’t had a fancy wedding the first time around and used this opportunity to plan her dream wedding! She chose her favourite colours, planned around one of the most scenic locations in Lethbridge, and looked stunning in her flower crown and lace dress with a full train.

They invited the people who were most important to them to their intimate wedding, including Mary’s daughters in the wedding party. Mary and Dale were all smiles at each other. Dale teared up so many times early on in the ceremony! They are such a sweet couple.

Congratulations, Mary and Dale!

Norland Estate Wedding Portraits in Lethbridge [Robyn & Wayne]

Robyn and Wayne, Norland Estate wedding portraits

Robyn and Wayne chose a beautiful, warm spring day to have their wedding. After they were married at the Lethbridge NRC Church, they and their familes joined us for Norland Estate wedding portraits. The property was so lush with all the fresh spring growth. We finished off their portraits at Henderson Lake to make use of the gorgeous lilac bushes.

They included so many classic and romantic elements in their wedding day. Robyn’s dress had beautiful lace sleeves and details, and her bouquet featured soft pastel colours. Wayne wore a well tailored navy suit with black trim and they brought along a family member’s burgandy vintage Volvo car as their wedding day ride. The Norland and this car went so well together!

Both Robyn and Wayne have such calm, kind personalities and a beautiful gentleness together. Whenever they thought they weren’t being watched, they were constantly giggling together :)

Congratulations, Robyn and Wayne!

beautiful spring blossom women's portraiture

I was really excited about my locations for spring blossoms this year and wanted to test them all out before my mini sessions started. (Plus I love any excuse to take photos in the flowers!) Why not spend a morning doing some beautiful spring blossom women’s portraiture? I’ve been wanting to work with local model Sadie for a while and she happened to be available right when I wanted to schedule these. Double win! Sadie was amazing to work with and brought along a fantastic wardrobe to go with the spring colours.
