Two Brown Eyed Girls (Winnipeg Newborn Photographer)

Leave a comment

The second family that I photographed on Sunday, has two cute little girls, one 19 months and the other just 3 weeks old. The challenge with this shoot was to a) get the baby to sleep and b) get big sister to smile. The baby only slept for a few minutes and big sister only smiled for a bit, so they won!! But I did get some great pictures and Big Sister did smile for one of them. My favorite pictures  are often ones where the children are not smiling and that was the case with this shoot as well. I love the expression Big Sister gave me in the picture that I am showing.

I also had the busy Tuesday, shooting the Remembrance Day Assembly as well as the opening of The Wall of Remembrance at ML School. Then in the evening, I photographed the Golden Dragon awards. It is definitely the biggest group of people that I have ever photographed, numbering around 700. The Golden Dragon Awards are given to individuals who demonstrate outstanding citizenship and this year the awards were given to Dr. Tse Li Luk, his wife Eva Luk and the honourable Lloyd Axworthy. I have never seen as many politicians in one day as I did yesterday!! It was a lot of fun.

And now for the two sisters:

I get to see these two cuties again a 3 months, when I do the four month pictures for the baby. I’m looking forward to it.


Session Types and Fees (Winnipeg Child and Family Photographer)

Leave a comment

People often ask me what it costs for a session fee and what it involves so I am going to spend some time breaking it down for you.

 For all sessions, I prefer to use natural light but this is not always possible because of the many cloudy days that we’ve been having and the variations in window light that people’s homes have.

 Here are the types of sesssions that I offer:

In Studio: $100.

In your home with natural light and possibly one hotlight using your own house or yard as a backdrop: $100.

In your home with a studio setup: $150. As you can imagine, bringing the backdrop stand and the backdrop, as well as lights is a lot of loading, unloading and setup work.

Outside in a park etc: $100

Newborns: in your home or at my house with a backdrop is $75. This is because newborns are my favorite clients. What could be more precious than a newborn’s tiny feet and hands and the way that they smell.  If it is part of the Baby’s First Year Club then it is $200 for 4 shoots and that is payable at the time of the newborn shoot.

Event coverage is $150/hour.

I hope that’s clear.

I am also adding a couple of the cards that I made up.

Baby’s First Year Club (Winnipeg Newborn Photographer)

Leave a comment

I have decided to reduce the price of “Baby’s First Year Club” for the rest of August.

The price will be $200 instead of $300. Baby’s First Year Club includes 4 photo shoots spaced out between the birth of your child until his first birthday, as well as an 8.5×11 hard cover photo book of your child’s first year.

If  you are expecting a baby or know someone who is, let them know about this offer. The Baby’s First Year Club membership also makes a great gift idea.

Call me if you have any questions or send me an email. My number is 204-669-0498 and my email is
