Lethbridge Summer Backyard Family Photos [Toni & David]

Lethbridge summer backyard family photos

Toni and David were able to celebrate a rare occasion – all of their daughters were in town at the same time, including their granddaughter! They took the opportunity to do Lethbridge summer backyard family photos at their home. It’s been a very long time since their last official family photo session so it was time for an update!

Their home in the heart of Lethbridge was meticulously maintained, allowing us to do all of the photos right at their property. Even the park near their home couldn’t entice us away!

This family is so full of joy when they are together. They took no coaxing at all to embrace each other, hug, and whip out silly faces as needed.

Dreamy Floral Light Painting Photography [Rain & Tuezday]

dreamy floral light painting portraits

A few years ago I came up with an idea to do some dreamy floral light painting photography at the Henderson Lake rose garden in Lethbridge. Some years the roses didn’t bloom all too well, while other years I never had enough free evenings. This year after seeing how gorgeous the roses were, I made it happen! I’ve worked with Tuezday as a model in the past, and her gorgeous daughter Rain has recently started modelling as well. I was eager to get Rain in front of my camera and had to get them together for this! Rain is already a natural at modelling and did fantastic holding long poses. These photos were done well after dark, requiring a flash light to focus and then using light painting to create this dreamy, fantasy effect.

Galt Museum Summer Wedding Ceremony and Reception [Christine & Joe]

Christine & Joe, Galt Museum summer wedding ceremony and reception

Christine and Joe planned their Galt Museum summer wedding ceremony and reception as a celebration of their families coming together. They each gained two amazing children out of their union, as well as all of the extended family that goes along with it.

Joe’s uncle graciously let us borrow their rural property for portraits and for Christine’s getting ready location, and what a stunning place it was! Only a few steps away we had wooden swings, cute bridges, and rustic walls. Christine and Joe began their portraits with a first look. They both did a wonderful job of keeping it together, especially when it was clear either could burst into happy tears at any moment.

Their children were hilarious! They all had the best silly faces, great attitude when I asked them to be super serious, and busted out their amazing dance moves the moment the music started at the reception. The strong friendship makes it nearly impossible to tell they are a blended family and not biological siblings.

Christine and Joe were all grins for each other right up until the end of the night. They are so perfect for each other. :)

Congratulations, Christine and Joe!

Henderson Lake Children’s Photography [Tawana]

Henderson Lake children's photography

Tawana was celebrating his third birthday and his parents wanted to capture his personality at this point in his life. His mom warned me that a lot of that personality involved excitedly running around! Sure enough, he loved sprinting at the park and I think his mom and dad needed a good nap after all that chasing!

It was a beautiful day for Henderson Lake children’s photography other than the wind. Luckily Tawana loves the wind and it just made him want to run more! He was adorable in all of his outfits. I love when really little kids wear adult styles!

Jessica & Josiah, Lethbridge Trinity Reformed Church Wedding

Just one day after second shooting for Melanie, I got to do it again with Kassey from Red Tree Photography! This time we had a Trinity Reformed Church wedding with Jessica and Josiah, who met at college and fell in love. Josiah’s family travelled from Ontario to meet Jessica’s Alberta family and have their beautiful ceremony at Jess’s family’s church.

Jessica and Josiah looked amazing, especially with her flower crown and his red bow tie. We took the wedding party to Indian Battle Park for portraits after the ceremony, then just the bride and groom downtown before heading to their reception at the Coast Hotel.

Congratulations, Jess and Josiah!

Waterton Lakes Summer Family Photos [Julia & Her Abuelas]

Waterton Lakes summer family photos

Julia got to experience some very special Waterton Lakes summer family photos when both of her abuelas came from Brazil to visit Canada! Her family wanted to show them some of the best Southern Alberta had to offer during their stay and it’s hard to beat the beauty of Waterton.

We started our photos at the Prince of Wales Hotel where it was just as windy as usual! Julia thought the wind was fun and constantly made airplane arms into it. Julia had so much fun playing with her grandmothers. I’m not sure who made the other smile more! They were so joyful to spend time with their sweet little grand daughter, doing all kinds of singing and dancing together.
