Virtual Assistant Branding Session [Brooke from Out of Sight Online]

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

virtual assistant branding session

For this virtual assistant branding session, it was all about the woman behind the business! Brooke is the owner of Out of Sight Online and for this photoshoot we focused on her and her personality she brings to her clients.

Brooke used to be a general purpose virtual assistant but has recently shifted her business to focus primarily on podcasters. This was where she found her passion for what she does and her favourite clients!

The great thing about being a virtual assistant is the ability to work from anywhere (which usually means at home), but this also meant Brooke didn’t have a proper “office” space for us to use for her at work images. For that we turned to Jonny Bean Coffee in Lethbridge, whose bright and modern space was perfect for Brooke’s brand. (Plus we got to have tasty drinks during that part of the session.)

For Brooke’s branding photos we wanted to show that she gets things done, is approachable, and offers a very one on one service. I kept everything bright and airy while pulling in the blue and gold accent colours from her website and logo, while Brooke found a perfect wardrobe to match.

Medical Office Branding Session [Sport & Spine Physiotherapy]

Tuesday, August 18th, 2020

medical office branding session

This medical office branding session at Sport & Spine Physiotherapy in Lethbridge was a perfect mix of headshots, features of the building, and action shots of the services they provide.

Sandra, the owner of the business, had two goals in mind for her branding session. First, she wanted to update their website with personalized photos rather than stock images. Second, she had been in the recruitment process for young new doctors when COVID hit and prevented her from attending job fairs. Instead, she hoped to clearly demonstrate what her clinic offered through photography that could be used during recruitment.

Physiotherapy is all about actionable tasks in healing so it was important to show Sandra at work. We brought in a couple clients to model and try out the various services Sandra provides at the clinic. It was really interesting seeing what a huge range of techniques she has at her disposal and I couldn’t resist trying a few of the mobility tests myself!

The clinic is so bright, colourful, and modern that it made my job very easy, plus our models were fantastic and willing to do anything Sandra threw their way.

Celebrating High School Graduation like a Hollywood Starlet [Torrince]

Lethbridge high school graduation

Torrince enjoys the company of her family, some close friends and the limelight at her Lethbridge graduation celebration

Torrince’s hair was swept up with tiny jewels sparkling inside it. Her makeup was smooth, her eyes smokey, and when I asked her to strike a pose, she moved with ease – like she’d been doing it her whole life! Like a young, Hollywood starlet, Torrince was a natural in front of the camera, and as her parents (dad, Quentin and step-mom, April) proudly looked on, it was all they could do to keep from tearing up throughout their daughter’s high school graduation portrait session – which did happen once or twice :).

An Explosion of World Dance and Music, our 2020 Lethbridge show!

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

Ammena Dance Company vintage 50s themed dance show poster

This year was both fun and challenging coming up with a vintage 50s inspired feel for the poster for An Explosion of World Dance and Music, the annual dance show put on by Ammena Dance Company. Our original location we had planned to use fell through in a big way. Luckily one of the dancers in the show had a bit of a time capsule bar in their basement!

The retro vibe was inspired by a few specific pieces in the show, and you’ll see the costume pictured in the Grease number! The rest of the show has many of the usual dance styles people have come to expect from the studio, such as Latin, dancehall, bellydance, jazz, African, and many more. Come check it out!

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! :)

University of Lethbridge Masters Degree Convocation Photos [Martha]

University of Lethbridge Masters Degree Convocation Photos

Martha is a very dear friend of one of my favorite university professors that I’ve ever had. I’ve seen so many photos of her and heard so many of their adventures that I almost felt like I knew her before I met her! As part of her graduation gift, Martha’s friend treated her to convocation portraits. This year Martha accomplished the huge achievement of graduating with a University of Lethbridge Masters Degree in Environmental Science.

We did the photos at the University of Lethbridge to honour the hard work she put in on campus. However, Martha was feeling a little done with her studies by that point so we stuck to more of the natural landscape around the university rather than looking at the buildings. The lilacs are amazing this year and were still in bloom on campus so we took full advantage of them.

Upon meeting Martha you can immediately sense how kind and positive she is. This was even more apparent in how happy she looked wearing several layers with her cap and gown in the heat! It was super hot that day – unbelievably so! – but Martha was full of smiles and laughter.

Congratulations on your graduation, Martha!
