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.
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 love dogs so it was a lot of fun to photograph the new puppy in our family, as well as, her sister, 12 year old Annie. These are my son’s family dogs in Calgary. Chili Bean, the puppy is a 6 months old goden doodle and is full of energy. Annie is 12 and although she has slowed down, she still likes walks and is very affectionate.
I love meeting new people and talking to them about their lives and what is important to them. Doing headshots (what a strange name for a portrait) is a perfect time to do that and it was my pleasure to meet Dr. Sara a couple of days ago. We had a great time taking some pictures and chatting. Dr. Sara Korsunsky is a naturopathic doctor who works out of the Centre for Natural Medicine. She is easy to talk to and very down to earth.
A couple of evenings ago I had the pleasure of photographing my great niece with her parents. I’ve been photographing this girl for most of her life and it’s hard for me to believe that she is finished grade 12. Sarah is not only beautiful, kind and smart; she is an amazing writer and will go onto university to become a teacher.
Here is Sarah!
Love this picture with the flowers behind her.
Sometimes the best images are candids. I love this candid image for the story that it tells. It is a slice of life happening and it makes me ask questions like: why does LC , the guy with the shades, has his knee on the dog! Is this his way of keeping Roo (the dog) under control? Does it work? Or is his leg just tired and he’s using Roo as a post to lean on? I also wonder who Sarah was texting? And why she has such a big smile? Did she get a really nice message from someone or is she just happy that our photography session is over.
