I am excited to share these photographs from a recent family “mini session” that I photographed in late October. This adorable family wanted to include the 4th “member” of the family and I just love how these turned out. Dogs are definitely important members of the family and should be remembered in our family portraits. Even when it comes to my own family’s photos, we have included our own pups the past couple years and now I’m afraid my kids won’t let me do a family photo without the dogs (which makes things fun that’s for sure!).

Of course I do think it’s important to do some “people only photos” too so here are some of my favorites! I love how this session turned out. Beautiful day, beautiful sunset light, and a super beautiful family!

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 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.

Contact me for more details!

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!)

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!

As you may or may not know, I am a dealer for Be Filled frames in Lethbridge. That means you can order gorgeous Be Filled picture frames from me, at a slight discount over buying them direct from Be Filled’s website. I just wanted to let everyone know about the great sale they are having in April, buy one 2 frames, get the third free! This is a great way to affordably design yourself a wall gallery, or stock up for a mother’s day gift! I have all the color samples in my studio, so if you need to take a look, let me know!befilledjennaslomp

 

Now is a great time to take advantage of this Be Filled frame special, just in time for Christmas shopping!!! Frames (especially frames filled with adorable pictures of your own kids!) make perfect Christmas gifts. Contact me today to place your order.

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.
