6 months old and cute as a button! (Winnipeg Child & Family Photographer)

Leave a comment

Yesterday, I photographed a 6 month old little guy who I last saw when he was born. This baby is so cute, he could be a baby model!  Not only is he gorgeous but he has such a sunny disposition, it makes my job very easy.  And although M is their first child, there actually are two children in the family. The other is a very rambuctious, but sweet tempered dog named Louie. I am a dog lover as well, so I completely understand how dogs are part of the family. I got some great shots of Louie and M because Mom or Dad were controlling Louie. but it was more difficult to get a family picture with the four of them. I think the next time we’ll need an extra hand to control the dog and get him to sit in a picture with the rest of the family. I love the pictures that follow;

I’ve been playing around with a new program that makes up collages. I love it.  I used some of my recent favorites to come up with some really neat collages.

Here they are:

The first two are of M, my last baby shoot.  Too cute!!!



This is T, who was a natural in front of the camera. And a gorgeous girl too. dancingsm

Another newborn. Such a sweet little guy!


And this is Q, one of my favorite little guys! I love how the first one is cropped to just show his mouth and hands.


Spring has Sprung Special (Winnipeg Photographer Special)

Leave a comment

After a very, very long cold winter, we finally are getting a taste of warm weather. This warm weather is not a constant, but comes and goes as the phases of the moon, but at least we do get a glimpse of spring now and then.  I think Spring is a grand thing to celebrate. Why not mark the end of yet another dark season to welcome the beginning of new life and more light. So I am offering a spring has sprung special. If you book a session by May 15th, I will give you a $25 print credit. It’s a limited time offer so why book that session that you’ve been meaning to book now?

I showed you the image in the poster in an earlier blog. It now has won another award at Manitoba Camera Club; a 2nd and a 1st Honorable Mention. email-mailing-april-21-09-sm2copy


Hope to hear from you,


Beautiful Baby Boy (Winnipeg Newborn Photographer)

Leave a comment

I was lucky to be able to shoot this beautiful 10 day old little guy on Thursday. K was adorable ,as you can see from his pictures. He looks so peaceful and sleepy in the pictures but in fact, he was very resistant to sleeping. His mom and dad kept getting him to sleep, but as soon as we tried to pose him, or take the blanket off him, he woke up. He also has an incredible appetitite. For most of the 3 hour session, he was drinking his bottle. And the dozing off again, only to wake up again the next time we tried to move him. But I did get some beautiful images of him. Here are a few of them:







Calgary, Winnipeg and China

Leave a comment

I’m off to Calgary tomorrow to visit our son and his family. Best part is that our son and his wife are going skiing so I will have my grandson to myself. Ashton is 7 and in grade 2. I timed the trip to coincide with his Parent Teacher Interview. The teacher in me wants to know. lol.

Been out doing a lot of night shooting in the last couple of weeks; in the exchange and at the train station. We actually got out onto the tracks at the station while an engine came in. It happened so fast but I did get a shot. The theme this month at Camera Club is night/low light, hence the night pics.

Also, taught a couple more photography classes at Ralph Brown School. I wish that I could post some of the pictures that the kids have taken but since most of them are pictures of each other, I am not able to. I’m so proud of the great job that they’ve done. Turns out that holding the camera still is their single biggest challenge. We worked on that quite a bit and there was a big improvement.

Other than that I’ve been working on setting up a friend’s website.  Check it out: www.digital35.ca. Tse Li Luk is the name of the photographer and he will be having an exhibition at the Millenium Library for the month of May. All proceeds from the exhibition will be going towards the Chinese Cultural Centre to celebrate the Chinese community having been here for 100 years. The images are all from the Chinese countryside that Tse Li took on a recent trip to China. This exhibition is definitely worth checking out. I am by no means a website designer, but know how to see up a site at www.smugmug.com , because  they are the hosts of my 2 sites;  this one and www.studio86.smugmug.com.  The customer service at smugmug is simply the best and keeps me there.  I don’t do a lot of work on the studio86 site as my www.chrismcwilliamsphotography.com site keeps me busy enough. Anyways, I will post one of  Tse Li’s images for a sneak peak at the exhibition.

That’s it for today. The sun is shining but winter seems to be back. When will it end? Or rather will it end? Who knows. One can only hope.

These are not the images that I will be entering this month. I will post my entries after the judging night. I also have changed the resolution and size of these images.

Here are a couple of images from my night shooting and then one of the images that will be on exhibition at the library:





I’m sure that you’ll recognize these spots if you’re from Winnipeg.

And now one from a place faraway with mystique and beauty-China:


Isn’t that a beautiful image! Mark May on your calendar and come down to the Millenium Library to see more of  Tse Li Luk’s work.

That’s it for now.
