The Fishers are another wonderful family I so enjoyed photographing!  They purchased a lifestyle photography package through a silent auction for one of my favourite charities, The Lloydminster Region Health Foundation, at their annual gala. As it often goes with families with grown children it can be hard to get everyone together so it was so great that it worked out for the Fisher family that we could do the lifestyle session on a Friday afternoon when the whole family was going to be together.

This past late summer and early fall has been a busy one with lots of fun family and child lifestyle sessions.  I love lifestyle sessions, it's so much fun to photograph families in a relaxed atmosphere on location whether it's at a local park or at their homes.  I always try to make these sessions super fun and create some great memories for families.

Brooklyn is another beautiful grad from this past grad season.  She was looking for something a little different so we decided to have her grad lifestyle session take place out at Loon Lake, Saskatchewan.  I love having lifestyle photography sessions out at the lake, it is such a beautiful backdrop! For Brooklyn's session we took advantage of Jumbo Beach which is probably one of my favourite areas at the lake as it has these beautiful spaced out trees right next to the water and we even found a super cool tree stump just hanging out along the bank.

Kiley is a gorgeous grad from this past grad season.  For her session we went out to Bud Miller Park in Lloydminster which is always such a beautiful green space.  This girl is so stunning and had one of the most gorgeous grad dresses I have seen; she was such a pleasure to photograph and made my job so easy as she is definitely very photogenic.  As I do with a lot of my grad sessions, I also did a mini family lifestyle session this time however everyone also had a change of casual clothes for a few photos!

Here is a super fun family lifestyle session of a very awesome family!  The Winter family had purchased a lifestyle package at a charity silent auction and had decided to have their session this summer out at their acreage.  This place is gorgeous! So many paths with beautiful trees and beautiful home it was such a perfect setting!  I had so much photographing this family, the kids were so awesome with such great little personalities!  Here are some of the highlights from the Winter family's lifestyle session :)

I love to photograph to grads, it is always so much fun to capture them feeling amazing all dressed up with their hair and make-up (for the girls) all done!  

Here is another gorgeous graduate from the class of 2014.  I had so so much fun photographing Zoe's grad lifestyle session, this girl was stunning and has such a super fun personality.  Plus Zoe's bestie Kim came for some photos and lots of laughs were definitely had during this session! For Zoe's grad portraits we went to downtown Lloydminster, which is such a great location! Lots of brick buildings and a cool old parkade make for some great backdrops! Here are some of the highlights from Zoe's grad lifestyle session :)

Congratulations Zoe! xo

Here is the first grad of the season, the gorgeous Amanda! For Amanda's session we went out to her grandparent's acreage and although the green hadn't started to form yet it was still beautiful out there! Amanda grew up coming out here and was telling me how as kids her and her sister would catch frogs in the pond and how she still loves to come out and ride the horses with her grandfather.  I love locations that have special meaning and we had so much fun going around the acreage to all the different areas.

A few weeks ago I had the honour of photographing Lydia + Jim and their family for their 40th wedding anniversary! I love to be part of these special occasions, seeing the love this beautiful couple still has for eachother after all this time is so heartwarming! As it was still a little chilly and not so green outside we decided to do their family session right in their beautiful home. It worked so great and as the whole family spends a lot of time together in their home it has special meaning as well.

The inspiration behind this session was a photo Darren had taken of him and his father on an old fork lift when he was a kid and to this day it is one of his favourite photos.  When he was telling me this story he mentioned he would love to have a session with his daughter in the shop at his work incorporating a fork lift and other items that could be found in the shop.  Darren's business is a family business that he took over from his father so it only seemed fitting that his parents be involved for a couple of photos as well.
