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!

I have known the Chapelski's for a few years and they have talked about having some new family photos taken for the last little while so I was so happy when they booked for a session this summer.  I had a wonderful time photographing this famliy, they are so much fun and such great people!  Apart from a few mosquito attacks it was a great evening for photos :)  

Here is beautiful summer family lifestyle session I photographed at Budmiller Park in Lloydminster, always a popular location for photos.  This family was so fun to photograph, their kids are so adorable!  Here are some of the favourite portraits from the Orchishko famly lifestyle session :)

Check out this slidshow showcasing some beautiful lifestyle portraits from past sessions :)

Have I mentioned how much I love outdoor photos in the winter!  There is something so beautiful about snow and if you have a day like I did with the Bourassa family where you even get some hoar frost then it's just pure magic!  I had such a great photographing this gorgeous family out at Budmiller Park in Lloydminster.  It wasn't too cold out and the lighting with the snow was just gorgeous.  I love how each (with the exception of Corey) wore a little red, there is something about the colour red and photos in the snow that go so perfectly together!

Here is the Schwenk family, another gorgeous lifestyle session :)  They  were wanting some beautiful indoor photos for Chrismas cards and for their home.  So I decided to see if we could photograph at The Root as it is such an awesome  place in the community and has some super cool decor which makes for gorgeous photos.

Merry Christmas, Brandy, Greg, Piper, Rocklin, & Ava! I had such a wonderful time photographing all of you :) 

Here is another gorgeous family Holly, Tyler, and their handsome little man Kingsley!  Being that the weather started to cool off and the beauty of fall was turning into winter we decided to have this shoot a little inside and a litte out.  And what better spot for some indoor photos than the store Holly is co-owner of, Socko (also my most favorite clothing store and I must insert a plug for it so please check it out you will not be dissapointed!) and the beautiful Root Community Emporium accross the street!

Here is another gorgeous fall family lifestyle session.  For this one we went to Bud Miller Park in Lloydminster and took advantage of some of the trails with the pretty fall sun shining through the trees.  We had a great time on the shoot and what can I say Haylee and Brody are two very adorable kids and it was so great getting to capture their little spirits!  Here are some of the favorites from the session :)

Thanks Raelean and Easten for having me photograph your family, it was so much fun :) xo

Fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year for family lifestyle sessions.  There is something magical about the leaves changing and falling from the trees and I love when I get to shoot when the sun is just low enough to come through the trees and create beautiful flair and back lighting!  This session encompasses some of that fall magic :)

I have gotten to know the Krauss' fairly well over the last couple years as I train for triathlons with Katherine and when it works we enjoy having our coffee dates even sometimes going to a Disney movie! This summer they decided to have another lifestyle session at Loon Lake, where we both have cabins. For this years session we mixed it up a bit, although still taking a family photo on the steps of the cabin we also took their boat out to the sand bar and I had so much fun capturing the kids playing in the water and truely being kids at the lake!
