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.

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 :)

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.

Every couple years The McAllister family updates their family photos and this past summer they decided to book their session with me.  I was super excited as they had such great ideas for some photos and were wanting a fun session to capture their family.  We went out to my father's farm at Lone Rock, and had so much fun exploring the many different areas.  I loved photographing this family, they are so gorgeous and have such a great energy to them! They made my job so easy and so much fun!

Kaeli and Karter are a gorgeous mother and daughter who decided it was time for some professional photos together.  Snow had fallen and it was a little chilly but the sun was out and it was still a beautiful day for a lifestyle session.  For their session we went out to my father's farm and took advantage of the leafless trees, old buildings, and the untouched snow.  There is just something so beautiful about photos in the winter with the snow!

I first met this beautiful family in the fall of 2012 when they booked a family lifestyle session out at their acreage.  This past winter they decided to book another lifestyle session in their yard, they wanted the same casual look to their photos but since this time it was winter we wanted to take advantage of the early snowfall and have some fun!  I love when I get to capture amazing moments with families especially when they book every year as it's so great to capture how much their young children change year to year!  Melanie, John, and their kidlets are so much fun!

Every summer I look forward to photographing the Krauss family out at their cabin in Loon Lake, Sk.  And this past summer was no different, this is always one of my most fun lifestyle sessions!  This family is so awesome, they have so much fun together and laughs are definitely always had!  Like the previous years we always do the traditional family photo on the steps of the cabin.  I love this!  It's such a great annual photo as you can really see how the kids keep growing and changing from year to year.

Here is an super cute fall lifestyle portrait session of a super awesome family!  Graham, Gina, and their adorable daughter Layla booked a fun fall session; and we did have fun, being just over a year Layla already has quite the cute personality and she defintely gave us lots of laughs and I loved getting to photograph her!  Here are some of the favourite photos from their fall lifestyle session :)

Here is super fun lifestyle family session of the awesome Gilby family from this summer!  For their session we went to downtown Lloydminster as Trevor has a very cool vintage car and the scenery downtown makes a very cool backdrop!  We also decided to venture to Anniversary Park for a few photos afterwards, just to add some variety and some photos with some pretty greenery.  This family has so much fun together, as can be seen in the photos, they have such a great energy and I loved every moment photographing them!  Here are some of favourites from the Gilby's lifestyle session :)

Every summer Michelle and her family, her siblings and their families, and her parents go on a joint camping trip together.  This year they were camping just outside Lloydminster and as Michelle has two sons she thought it would be fun to take her nieces into town and have a fun girls day with pedicures, lunch, and a photo session; seriously how much fun!  So I met up with Michelle and her nieces at Bud Miller Park for the session and I had such a great time photographing these beautiful ladies!
