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.
It’s been a long time since I’ve updated the blog, truth be told I was taking some unofficial time off for a bit, and I have to say it feels really good to be doing some photography again! I realized today it’s been almost 11 years since I started this business! I am so thankful that I have so many amazing clients who call me when they add a new baby to their family, so I get to watch them grow and help them capture it too!
One of my most favorite newborn sessions was back in 2011, when I took pictures of these gorgeous newborn twins… (see more from that session here)
Well now these girls have grown up a bit, still just as gorgeous!!!
and now they have a new baby brother named Gavin!
I really, really struggled in choosing which photos to share in this sneak peek. I don’t want to give away all the best ones, because I want there to be some delightful surprises when mom and dad view their proof gallery… but I also really really want to share so many of them!!! So these will have to do for now.
I LOVE this family photo…
Gavin is as you can see, was a very, very alert newborn! Thankfully we got tons of adorable awake photos because he really didn’t want to sleep for me! But I love that we got so much variety, it’s so fun to have both awake and asleep photos of such a new little guy!
I will share more later. Lots more favorites to come!
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!

Here is a sneak peek from a recent photo session with one year old Solomon. What an adorable little boy, and I absolutely LOVE his outfit! So fun.
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!).
Fall is my favorite! I’m sure I have said that every year for the past 8 years I’ve been in business but it’s true. The light just seems different in the fall, and I LOVE it!
Today on my photography blog, I’m sharing a sneak peek from a recent outdoor mommy and me baby session. It’s not too late to book a session with me if you want to get your own family (or childrens) photos done in the fall, but book now because the leaves won’t stick around long (that’s the thing about Lethbridge, fall is SHORT thanks to our lovely wind).
I can’t wait to share more of these two beautiful ladies, but for now, I will leave you with these! Enjoy!
August is almost over, that means there’s only one more day to order a Be Filled Paisley frame for 20% off! The Paisley is my favorite style of photo frame that Be Filled sells.
Here is a photo of my 20×24 teal Paisley frame I have hanging in my family room. I just love this frame, it is the biggest of all the Be Filled frame styles, and it really makes a statement.
Contact me to order a paisley frame by tomorrow night if you want this deal!
