St. Augustine Catholic Church Wedding in Taber [Kaylyn & Clint]

Kaylyn & Clint, St. Augustine Catholic Church Wedding in Taber

Kaylyn and Clint had to account for many changes to their St. Augustine Catholic Church wedding throughout the pandemic. After the initial postponement, they decided to go ahead even if it meant their wedding would be smaller than anticipated. They also had the added difficulty of the groom coming from the United States!

With their day getting shuffled around, they decided to do some more relaxed but posed photos at St. Augustine Catholic Church rather than photos of the ceremony. It was fantastic having full run of the church and being able to work around the beautiful light there. We even staged a few key elements of the ceremony.

We spent the rest of the morning at the Taber MD Park for portraits. The perk of doing all the photos before their ceremony meant we avoided all the afternoon heat!

Having such an intimate day meant Kaylyn and Clint got to spend so much quality time together, a luxury a lot of couples don’t get with how hectic wedding days can be. We loved spending the morning with them.

Congratulations, Kaylyn and Clint!

Taber Pet & People Portraits [Tayler and Her Critters]

Taber people and pet portraits

It’s always a joy to return to Tayler’s home near Taber and document her and her beloved animals year after year.

Tayler has exponentially increased her husbandry skills with the addition of her herd of little ponies (or a “string” of ponies if Google is correct!), many of whom are adorably named after Game of Thrones characters. Some of these proved to be more challenging to coerce into photos than the cats, while others lovingly followed us everywhere and photobombed us when it was supposed to be another pony’s turn.

Sadly Tayler lost her dog Summer last year, so the photo of her with her remaining dogs was super important. Autumn and Summer had been best buds and now Autumn is also getting up there in age, so we focused a little harder on playtime photos with her.

We had a little less time for photos of Tayler by herself this year after all our pony wrangling, but quickly snuck in some individual portraits each time she did a quick wardrobe change!

Thank you for trusting me with your photos year after year, Tayler! :)

Barnwell Family Pet Photos [Tayler]

Barnwell family pet photos

Tayler had a new addition to add to her annual Barnwell family pet photos this year… their adorable Husky Winter! Winter joined their family a year ago and is a perfect companion to the other seasonal dogs, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Winter fits right in and loves playing with her fur siblings! I love coming out to Tayler’s house every year for her portrait session and hanging out with her, her mom, and all of their adorable critters. This year we had to work a little faster because it kept raining. This came as a surprise as it was one of the very few days it rained all summer! Luckily most of the animals didn’t mind being outside when it was damp. The cats were the exception, but it was a little easier to round each one up for a special portrait with Tayler when they were all hiding inside in the dryness ;)

Taber Newborn Baby Girl Photos [Olivia & Her Family]

Taber newborn baby girl photos

Remember smiley Lucas from last autumn? He’s back, and this time he has a baby sister! Olivia was welcomed into their family early in the new year and Lucas is already a doting big brother, carefully watching her and giving her endless forehead kisses. It was such a fun morning in Taber doing her newborn baby girl photos when he was so giggly. Their family is so joyful with their new addition. Olivia is quiet and watchful, and I think she’ll be as big a giggler as her brother.

Barnwell Equestrian Portraits [Tayler]

Barnwell equestrian portraits

This was my third time going out to Tayler’s family acreage in Barnwell to spend an amazing afternoon with her and her adorable pets. This year we focused a little more on the equestrian portraits when Tayler took one of her horses out to the field for some riding action shots. I love seeing her interact with her animals. She already has such a kind personality but the way she interacts with the pets, as well as how sweetly they respond to her, shows how nurturing she truly is. Being such an animal lover myself, I love being around this!

As usual, Tayler rocked her session and is always a natural in front of the camera. She makes my job so easy!

Taber Newborn Baby Photos [Lucas]

Taber newborn baby photos

I was so excited to hear that another of my past wedding couples recently welcomed a baby into the world! I drove out to Taber for newborn baby photos of Lucas with his mom and dad, who were a little sleepy from their constant wake ups but so happy to have their little boy home. Lucas is normally a heavy sleeper but was fascinated by getting to be a model and carefully watched us through the whole session. He was happiest when snuggled by mom or dad so we were able to get lots of great photos of them embracing him :)
