Manitoba Highland Dancing Competition 2013(Winnipeg Event Photography)


I’m a bit late on blogging about The Highland Dance Competition.  The truth is the sometimes life just throws us lemons. Today was one of those days. First of all, I have a cold and feel rotten, then my Macbook died and I had to drive to the Apple store in Polo Park to get it fixed. (They were amazing and fixed it on the spot and I didn’t lose any data). In between that, I worked on getting my bedroom painted as the carpet came out this morning and the new floor is going in on Wed. So all of that, and I am dying to get out into the yard and clean things up and just be outside.

Enough complaining. I had a wonderful vacation in Mexico and one bad, rotten, horrible day will not be the end of me. Right?

This is my third year of photographing the Highland Dancing Provincial competitions and I enjoy seeing all the girls growing and getting better at the various steps and jumps that they have to make. There were the inevitable tears but there were also a lot of big, bright smiles and huge trophies that were won.

I had some fun with these first 2 girls when they came to get their pictures done.

Have a look at the leaps and the jumps and the fun!

  1. Hi Chris, the picture you took of my granddaughter is absolutely adorable she is four years old blue kilt no. 854. I can’t wait to see the ones you took of lily & Chloe together. I am the one that you met at polo park. Thank you so much. Your photography is amazing. Paige Phillips.
