I promised I would share a few more from this recent mini family session in Lethbridge, so I’m back today sharing a few more of my favorites.
Family sessions don’t have to be painful! I know a lot of parents worry that it will be too stressful, or that their kids won’t behave, or that their teenagers won’t cooperate. They use these reasons to put off having their family photos done… But I am here to tell them, I know exactly what they’re feeling and I try my best to make the whole process as painless as possible… even, dare I say it… fun!
If you think your family wouldn’t be able to handle a whole photo session, consider a mini.
Thought I would share a sneak peek from a recent family mini session. These parents didn’t want to torture their teenagers with a long photo session, so they hired me for just a short session, focused on family photos only. Working with teenagers is always such a breeze compared to the babies and toddlers I usually work with, so I had fun doing this session. Hopefully they did too!
Here’s one for now, will share more later.
If you are thinking you want some fall family pictures in Lethbridge, it’s not too late! I have some openings this weekend, and there’s still some great fall color! Send me an email! (use this contact form!)
Today I thought I would pop in to the blog to show off a few sneak peeks from a recent family photo session. I love when I get to work with families that I’ve photographed before. It’s so cool to watch my little clients grow up… Last time I photographed these two (6 years ago already), they looked like this…
So cute right???
Well they’re still super cute but much older! (if photos appear a little fuzzy, click on each photo to view it clear and sharp!)
Man those 6 years went by crazy fast! Nothing makes you realize how quickly time goes like watching kids grow up… Makes you realize how important it is to take time to have your family documented in photographs! Even if you can’t book a session with a professional photographer very often, make sure you are taking (and printing!) lots of photos.
I don’t want to give away all of my favorites from this session just yet, but for now, here are a few that I was dying to share.
THIS next one is one of my new favorite family photos I have ever taken. I love it. I love love love family interaction photos… and I hope my clients do as well! I know when it comes to my own family I treasure these types of photos.
Ok one last one for now, will try to remember to share more favorites later. If you are wanting a family photo session before Christmas, now is the time to book! Hopefully we have a few more weeks before we get any more SNOW!
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.
