Beautiful Family of Twelve! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

It was my pleasure to photograph this good-looking family last weekend on the event of the parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. We did this session along the river bank behind 529 Wellington.

Here’s a sneak peek of this fun family event!

We did some traditional poses but it’s always fun to just ham it up!

These are the grandkids. I wonder how long he could hold this pose?

The happy couple after 50 years of marriage. They must have gotten married in their teen years!

It was a pleasure to have photographed this adorable baby girl and her beautiful triplet sisters!

After having 5 baby boys in a row it was really fun to dress up and photograph this baby girl. I loved every minute to working with her and her sisters!

Here’s a sneak peek of this session:

This beautiful baby boy came for his first photography session today.

At Nine Days New, Little J was a joy to cuddle and photograph. I loved working with him and his parents.

Here’s a sneak peek of J on Day Nine.

It was Day 9 for this beautiful little guy  when he came to the studio yesterday. L. was a perfect little model, sleeping for the whole session and only waking up at the end. I loved photographing him and his almost 3-year-old sister.

Look at this gorgeous little guy with the long eyelashes and the perfect head of hair!

Grace and and her Great Family! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

I love dogs and Grace, the 1-year-old Golden Retriever, featured here,  is as sweet as they come. Grace will be trained to be a Seeing Eye dog and will go to a blind person once she finishes her training, but the family that have raised for a year will miss her a lot and so they wanted some pictures of her before she went.

Needless to say, this family touched my heart. It must be incredibly difficult to give up a dog, but what a wonderful thing to do for someone else!

This is Grace:

This is Grace with her human brother.

These are Grace’s siblings!

What a Sweet Baby Boy! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

This little cutie was a perfect little poser at only 5 days old. We finished our session in just over an hour and he barely made a peep. Not only was he a perfect little model; he also is incredibly beautiful, with his curly black hair, his little pug nose and  his full lips.

Here is a very sweet baby boy on Day 5!

There is something very satisfying in restoring a photograph; at looking at a picture that is over 100 years old and wondering about the people in the picture.

My grandmother is the baby on the lady’s lap on the left in this first picture.  The lady who is holding her is her grandmother, my great great grandmother.  I had to do quite a bit of repair to the picture as it had gotten folded at one point and was quite damaged. Some of the faces were hard to bring back as there wasn’t enough information in the original, but I’m happy with what I ended up with.

When I look at this picture, I can’t help but wonder about the people’s lives. These are my ancestors. Why did they dress in black? Was that comfortable? What were their personalities like? What were their wishes and dreams? Was life easier than today?

My husband, John, has been going through a lot of his “stuff” and we found some old albums that his grandfather, Norman Black,  put together. The picture above is a 5×7 but the pictures in the albums are all 3x2s, so they are quite a bit smaller than the one above. Since, they are smaller, it’s harder to bring out the detail. Here are some of the ones from 2 albums that I did work on.

This first one is a man looking at a river. It’s unclear where this is taken but it says April, 1904. Amazing how this image has come back to life! The man looks like his head is not attached, but on closer inspection it looks like he was wearing a white shirt with a white-collar.

 

This image says St. Norbert, 1906. I love how this picture tells a story. The woman on the right is enjoying a glass of what is probably wine and the lady directly behind her is almost glaring at her. I wonder why? And I wonder what the occasion is and who they are. Too bad Norman Black didn’t put their names. He did put names for some of the picture but a lot of his print has faded.

This image made me laugh out loud. What is this man looking at? Why does he have 16 on his shoes? Where is he and why does he have strange ladies in the pictures right behind him. I think Norman Black had a great sense of humor (as does John) and also a great eye for photography. I would love to have had a conversation with him about his photography.

Do you have pictures from long ago that you would like restored? Are their pictures that you would like to save before they are completely faded?

If you do, give me a call. I can give you a quote for restoring your precious photographs. My number is 204.962.3424.
