Thanks for checking out my photography blog today!

Today I am popping in to share a few more of my favorite photos from my recent studio photography session with Jaxden and Peyton. When it comes to defining my “style” in photography, I have to say my favorites and the photos that I feel represent my style the most are the relationship photos. Real, true, fun, (sometimes not fun) family moments are my favorite and of course genuine expressions. I work so hard to get my clients to relax, to truly smile at me, to laugh (sometimes I am truly making a fool of myself) but the results are always so worth it.

A few of my favorites of brother and sister together…

 

and the handsome big brother alone…


Last but not least, the star of the show, Peyton.

Our main focus of the session was to get some adorable “1 year old” portraits to celebrate her recently turning one! I love this little outfit her mom got for her!

And of course we had fun playing dress up with her and using all my girly props… just another day at the office if you know what I mean 😉

Checking into my photography blog today to share a sneak peek from a recent vintage style studio baby photography session in Lethbridge. I know the momma of this precious baby girl has been waiting oh so patiently to see these, and I don’t want to make her wait any longer!

I just got that vintage wagon toy and I couldn’t be happier about how it worked for this image! (Cute baby also doesn’t hurt).

Also in love with using my new vintage washtub that I picked up a few weeks ago. Baby picture perfection! My personal philosophy when it comes to using props in a photoshoot is that less is more. I LOVE a timeless, classic image and I think that can only be created with minimal props that enhance the image, rather than to steal attention from the true subject of the portrait-the child! Looking through my website galleries you won’t see photos with a ton of props-and that is intentional. I strive to create timeless portrait photographs that won’t look like an out of date trend a few years from now. That being said I am always open to using frilly outfits and diaper covers. I am the mom to three little boys so I always joke about how I only really get to indulge my girly frilly pretty prop side when I have baby girls in my studio.

And for now I will add one more, of the adorable baby Peyton with her big brother. I work hard to make sure I get at least one awesome shot of SIBLINGS TOGETHER because I know as a mom, those are the pictures that just make your heart happy-when you get a great picture of your kids TOGETHER, HAPPY, with genuine expressions!

I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about fall family photos. If you are desiring a fall family photoshoot with me, please book now for best fall color. With the recent cold snap I have a feeling we will lose a lot of leaves (and all the gorgeous color) very quickly here in Southern Alberta so book early to avoid disappointment. Email me through my contact page and let me know when you would like to get your photos done. I have limited availability but keep myself flexible to compensate for bad weather.

I was so honored to be asked to photograph this extended family session because I spent a lot of time in this backyard, with this lovely family, when I was a kid. It really doesn’t feel like it was that long ago at all… but in the same way feels like it’s been forever! It’s always cool to see how the people you grew up with, grow up and have families of their own. I couldn’t ask for a nicer family to work with and I really had fun reconnecting with them all.

In typical Lethbridge fashion, we had to deal with gale force winds during this family photo session. But despite the wind blowing everyone’s hair every which way, I am really happy with the photographs from this session. I am almost finished the gallery and I’m excited to show them to the family, but for now, here is a sneak peek of a few that stood out at me… more to come soon!

*just a note, I notice when viewing this blog on a mobile device the photos can sometimes be a bit blurry, if that happens click on the actual photo to see it the way it is supposed to look!

There’s something about this last one that I just love. It might be my favorite.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday with your families.

I know, it’s been a long time since I updated this blog, and I’m sorry!

This has been such a beautiful fall, I’m sure I am not the only photographer in Lethbridge who has been loving this warm weather, (minus the windy days of course).

Here are a few sneak peeks from a recent fall family photo session. I am so thankful for amazing clients who come back to me as their family grows. I first met this family when the oldest son was just a little guy, I believe he was 4. It’s been a pleasure to watch this family grow and photograph them as they do!

I know a certain mom who is waiting oh so patiently to see a sneak peek from this session, so here it goes. It was really really hard for me to narrow down which ones to show on here for the sneak peek, because there are seriously so many good ones. And I don’t want to show all the best ones now and then have the proof gallery be not as exciting, so remember, there are lots more to come!

First off, this one…. I took the top photo, on thanksgiving weekend 2014. Bottom photo from summer 2010. So fun to create an oldie but a goodie. I have the old one hanging in my studio actually, I always loved that one. Little brother’s expression here CRACKS ME UP. :)

Next up, a few cousin portraits. I think it’s so special to have your kids photographed with their cousins as well as with their own siblings. Bonus points because Grandma will LOVE you when she gets a beautiful photo of her beloved grandkids all together!

and to top off this little sneak peek… one that I LOVE of little brother. Because he was being a typical 6 year old boy, not at all interested in getting his photo taken… and I know moms can worry that we didn’t get anything good.

Just a quick one to share for now, LOVE love love family portraits in the fall! I always wait til the fall to update my own family portraits as well… (NOT that I want to discourage you from getting family pictures done anytime of the year!).

 

I am not officially “back to work” yet, still taking some time to enjoy my newest sweet little baby boy and adjust to this whole “life with three kids thing”… but when a special person called me and asked if I would do some family portraits for her while all her kids (and grandkids) were together in one city I couldn’t say no! I had so much fun working with this big family, everyone was so sweet and lovely and easy to work with (something that can’t always be said of big groups!).

There are many more photos to choose from so I definitely had a hard time narrowing it down  to show a few on my blog. This family has been waiting so patiently for a sneak peek so here it is, I should be done all of the photos soon, but for now I really hope you enjoy these!

I was having so much fun at this session-it was brutally hot BUT I could not complain because we had such a great location, and such cooperative fun subjects! oh and I can’t forget to mention the donkey audience! LOL. :)

Here are a few of my favorites from a recent fall family session in the riverbottom. This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of working with this family, but last time there were only 3 of them. Now they have 2 adorable little girls! I love all of the sibling interaction shots we got of the two girls together… so sweet. I have a feeling these girls will grow up to be best friends!

It’s family portrait season! Seriously there is something about fall that makes everyone think of family pictures. You should be too! If you are interested in booking a family photography session with me please email me or call me right away, my schedule is booking up really quickly. If you want the beautiful fall color the best time to do your session is before the 2nd week in October (in my opinion) because we all know the Lethbridge wind loves to kick in and blow all those beautiful leaves off the trees right in the beginning of October.

Here are a few favorites from a summer session with a very sweet family, I enjoyed working with them!

this little guy was so adorable, love his personality, here’s another one I loved of him…

Kaylee’s mom first brought her to my studio when she was just a teensy little baby, and that was 6 years ago already! I can’t believe how fast time has gone. A lot of the babies on my website are turning 6 this year and it just seems entirely crazy to me that so much time has passed.

I also got to work with Kaylee when she was a full of energy toddler, but this was my first time photographing Logan. He was a little bit of a tough nut to crack at first, being 2 and loving the word, “no!” but he also loves the word, “vroom vroom” as in, Lightning Mcqueen. So I pulled out one of the many CARS we have around here and after that Logan was a doll. Just had to let the “vroom vroom” take some of the pictures!

This first one is my favorite, I love when I get a great sibling shot, it makes me so happy to see the connections and the love. I love how they are holding hands.

I love when we can include mom in the photos. As a mom I fully understand the reasons women have for putting off being in their family pictures, but I think it is so important! Your kids will love to look back years from now and see how pretty and how young you were! They will not be thinking anything negative, they’ll just be happy to have photos of you, and especially photos that show how much you loved your little ones… and remember mother’s day is coming up! A photo session with your kidlets would be a great gift to get this year, don’t you think? :-)
