Christmas Portrait Special (Winnipeg Family Photographer)

Leave a comment

I know it’s only Oct. 18th, but with November comes family pictures for Christmas and I wanted to make everyone aware of what my Christmas Special would be. Starting on the weekend of November 7th, up until 2 weeks before Christmas I will be offering a 20 minute, in studio session for $50. With this session, you will receive one 8×10 and two 5x7s, or you can get a DVD of 10 of your images for an extra $100.00. (only $10/image).  This second option will allow you to use the images on your own personalized Christmas cards. I can also design a personalized card for $25 and include it on your DVD.

Book your session soon.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays everyone. That’s Taylor, the sweetest dog ever. He almost doesn’t look real in the picture. That’s how beautiful he really is.

Last minute gift idea. How about a gift certificate? Call me at 669-0498 or email me at chrismcwilliams@shaw.ca. I’m sure that I can get one to you in time for Christmas. And if you’re wondering what they look like,  I have one right here. Great gift idea for anyone, especially if they have children or are expecting a baby.

I did an extended family picture yesterday and am shooting an engagement pic tomorrow. Unfortunately, since I am under the weather, things are moving more slowly here. I’ll share a few once I have some done.

Till next time.

Perfect in every way.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing this 2 week old newborn.  Newborns are my personal favorites and this one was no exception. He was perfect in every way and very cooperative about getting his picture taken. I was able to get some pics of him with is eyes wide open and others with him peacefully sleeping. Lucky mom and dad with this little guy.

Too cute, don’t you think?

If anyone is reading this and has a newborn, or knows of someone who will be having a newborn please note that I do have a First Year Special. If you get your newborn’s pictures done 4 times in her first year, then you have a choice of getting the fourth shoot for free or getting a beautiful first year album, or coffee table book free. I also charge $25 less for a newborn shoot. Newborns are $75, whereas other shoots are $100. The newborn price includes mom and dad but does not include any siblings of the newborn.

This is the last shoot that I need to edit before Christmas.  I have 2 others that need to be edited and also 2 more shoots that I will be doing before Christmas, but they don’t need to be completed before Christmas. The problem is that I need to get some Christmas stuff done. First off, I have cards made, but not mailed; then I need to do some decorating. Hopefully, get a tree up.  I also should buy some presents. (I do have some of that done.) I will be working on pictures, but really need to get away from the computer and do other stuff. It’s hard for me to get away from doing this. I really do love it.

Talk soon.

Happy Blue Eyed Boy

Yesterday I did pictures of a family with R, a2 year old boy. R, is the sweetest 2 year old that I have seen for a very long time. He also has the most beautiful blue eyes. What a gem. Here are a few of the images from this shoot.

Isn’t he adorable?  I feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to do the pictures for him and his family.

Today, I ventured out into the frigid cold temperatures to take pictures of M, a 2 week old baby. I can’t wait to edit those. M was adorable and very cooperative.

This past week, I also shot the Christmas Concert at ML and some pics of the beautiful Christmas displays at Sobey’s St. Vital. If anyone lives in the area, or even is just in the area, it’s worth stopping in. It’s a Christmas wonderland, with Santas, Christmas balls, polar bears, teddy bears, fireplaces and more. And all of it is on top of the coolers and freezers. All of this is designed and put together by Pauline, who along with her husband own the store.  Stop in and have a look!

On Friday I  took pics of D, a one year old with the biggest brown eyes that I have ever seen. She’s adorable. There’s no other way to describe her. D was very cooperative, especially for a one year old. At times it was obvious that she was a little confused about what was going on. Her way of communicating this idea was to put her arms out in front of her and look puzzled. So cute!!

Lucky grandma A, to have this sweet little munchin to look after. Here are a few of her images:

Christmas mini sessions

1 Comment

I will be offering Christmas mini sessions on Saturday, November 15th and Sunday, November 16th. I will offer mini sessions again if there is a lot of interest in them. A mini session is a 15 minute session with only 1 background. You can see the background that I wll be using in the images from my last shoot. Mini sessions are a less expensive alternate to a full hour session. Please plan around your young children’s schedules when booking a time for the sitting.  For the best results, have everyone wear clothes in the same colour scheme and avoid stripes, logos and patterns.

Mini Sessions

I will be having mini sessions on Oct. 11th and November 15th. Mini sessions will be 15 minutes in length with a choice of one of 2 backdrops and using a couple of poses. Mini sessions are not available for newborns or infants, but can be used for children over the age of 2 and for family pictures. Sessions cost $35.00, which includes a $15.00 print credit.

I have ordered a Christmas backdrop and will post it as soon as I get it. I will have it for November 15th and for all sessions booked for Christmas portraits.

I am trying the idea of mini sessions out to see if there is enough interest for this kind of shorter session. Mini sessions, will of course, not result in the same number of images as a longer 1 hour sessions, but you will end up with a few keepsake portraits.
