One of my favorite kids came to visit me yesterday and we got some amazing pictures done. I’ve been photographing this little girl since she was born and she just keeps getting more beautiful. She also loves to dress up and follows directions like a pro.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family that I hadn’t seen for many years. I think you will agree, that these girls and their mom are stunning. Sorry, Dad that you didn’t get a picture posted on the blog. The girls definitely stole this show!
I am very upset by the atrocities in the war in Ukraine and I want to do what I can to help, so I decided to do a fundraiser with money going to the Canadian Red Cross for Ukraine. Here is the website I will be donating to.
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM EXTENDING THIS SPECIAL TO APRIL 24th.
This special means that you will pay only $50 for a full hour photography session, plus get an 8×10 print of your choosing from the session. That’s a value of $150 for only $50 and I will donate that $50 to the Canadian Red Cross.
This is in effect from April 3rd to the 24th (including Easter weekend) and includes up to 4 people. I welcome dogs so please bring your furry family friends. This special is just in time for Mother’s Day and I know mothers love to get pictures of their families, so why not take advantage of this special and use the print(s) as a gift for your mom?
This special does not include newborn sessions as they take much longer than an hour.
Other prints and digital images are available. Ask me for prices if you are interested but please note that I do not sell digital images separately from prints.
I fell in love with this puppy yesterday and I guarantee that you would too! This is 5 month old Hallie, who found her forever home on Halloween. Hallie was shy at first but she settled down beautifully.
Yesterday I photographed the first dogs for my Spirit of Hope Rescue fundraiser and I couldn’t have had better models. Meet Caddy and Yuki, who are a breed called Keeshond. I hadn’t ever heard of this breed so I looked them up and found this: “The Keeshond is an old dog breed, once a companion and watchdog on the barges and boats that traveled the canals and rivers of Holland in the 17th and 18th centuries.”
These 2 were perfect dog models and listened really well to their owner’s commands. It was a lot of fun to work with them.
I am once again raising money for Spirit of Hope Rescue (https://spiritofhoperescue.ca/) by doing photo sessions with your fur babies. The poster below shows the Christmas backdrop that I am planning to use for these sessions but I also want to do some more generic pictures with a plain backdrop. The Christmas backdrop would be perfect for your Christmas cards (for example) and the other one would be a great memory picture that would be appropriate all year round.
Spirit of Hope is an amazing group of dedicated people who rescue dogs from more than 38 Indigenous communities in Manitoba. They have rescued more than 3500 dogs in the last 9 years. We have 2 of those dogs and are very grateful to this organization. Help me to help support them but bringing your pooch for this Christmas Dog Portrait session.
This is my new dog Otis in a formal posed picture. Isn’t he beautiful!
It had been six years since I last saw this family of four. We did this session in our yard and also used the railway tracks. The light was harsh on the tracks but we did manage to get some great images. I enjoyed photographing them again.
I love photographing children as they grow up and seeing the same families over the years. I’ve done a few sessions with this lovely family and their 2 sons, who are now 5 and 7 years old. We had a lot of fun doing this session at Kildonan Park.
