Mitch and Kara, a Lethbridge Wedding

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Kara and Mitch were married a few weeks ago at a beautiful sunny ceremony in Pavan Park with their closest family and friends in attendance. I had a fantastic time with them because they put the utmost trust in me and did anything I told them to for the sake of photos! (I made them “work for it,” Kara told me with satisifaction in her voice.) They were kind enough to let me drag them out to Monarch for the majority of their formal photos, and I’m so glad we went there because that is one of the most diverse towns I have ever seen for locations!

I was also pleasantly surprised to find someone I’ve known for a few years in their bridal party – Lethbridge is small like that, so I’m actually surprised it doesn’t happen more often!

Kara and Mitch are a sweet couple, and I must say I love Kara’s “kissy face” she often makes.

Thanks to Andrew Suderman for helping out this time around! (more…)

Sophia turned 3! (A visit to the Crowsnest Pass)

Monday, June 21st, 2010

I’m always happy when I get to see Sophia again, and this time she’s just a much bigger version of the Sophia I saw last year! I went to the Crowsnest Pass this last week to capture some photos of her just a few weeks after she turned three, and we hung out in downtown Coleman. It’s been so awesome seeing her grow up, especially now that she can have conversations and is an even bigger ham in front of the camera.

She’s definitely my new little buddy; she wanted me to come for slurpees after the session, kept insisting on riding with me instead of her mom, and had been talking about me for a few hours before we even did the photos!

Happy birthday, Sophia! (p.s. Her mommy designed an awesome zebra print cake for her birthday party. That’s definitely in my good books.) (more…)

Mother/Daughter (and Doggie) Photos, Lethbridge

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Sara’s mom Michelle was in town visiting last weekend so Sara asked me to capture some long overdue mother/daughter photos of the two of them, along with Sara’s sweet little dog Goldie. These photos were a challenge for Sara, because she is normally on the other side of the camera! However, she’s totally photogenic (even though she doesn’t think so), so I think she needs to spend more time in front of the lens too :) These girls were so easy to get beaming smiles out of, and I was glad I picked such a colorful location for photos when they had picked such gorgeous rich colors for their clothes.

Wyatt, Tarryn and Matt

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

Another autumn session! Tarryn and I have had a terrible time booking her family’s session; every time we’d pick a day, it would snow! Today we finally lucked out and had a beautiful warm afternoon to work with. Along with her husband Matt and their cute little guy Wyatt we took a stroll through the river bottom (by stroll I mean running after Wyatt) and took photos along the way. In usual 2 year old fashion, Wyatt wasn’t very pleased with us a little bit into the shoot, so I had to switch to paparazzi-shooting him :)

Ayako

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

In honor of the last wedding I shot with Michael, where he tried to buy balloons for the photos and the Lethbridge wind absolutely crushed that idea, I made another attempt at balloons in photos and this time it (sort of) worked! (Sure, balloons are the new “colorful old chair on the road” prop for photos, but I had to try them at least once!) Ayako was beautiful and easy to work with and I had a great time shooting her. It’s awesome that she found me, since we were in the last Lethbridge College fashion show together, but didn’t know each other at the time (a true indication of how small Lethbridge is!).

Meghan & Randy

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I started off the gorgeous weekend with an engagement session for a really fun couple from Fort McLeod, Meghan and Randy. These two were so sweet together and it was easy to see how well they compliment each other. I’d also like to point out how well coordinated they were! They were great sports to climb through all the prickly things we ventured through, and it all totally paid off. I got carried away and took way more photos than I normally do at a session… it’s their fault for being so cute!
