So Adorable at One! (Winnipeg Child Photographers)

Leave a comment

The last time I saw this adorably cute little girl she was a newborn and look at her now! At one, this little girl is full of smiles and was a perfect model for me.

Too bad she wasn’t impressed with her cake!

Here’s a sneak peek of this beautiful little girl.

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.

Pictures of Austria (Winnipeg Landscape Photographer)

I have my images of Austria ready and online for anyone to view. You can see them at this link:

http://picasaweb.google.com/ChrisMcWilliamsPhotography

Included in the gallery are images of Vienna, Steyr, the abby at St. Florian and a few of Salzburg. It was hot while I was in Europe.  Every day was between 35 and 38 degrees. Now I love heat and I love summer but the day we were in Salzburg the heat got to me and I never took as many pictures as I would have liked to. It was the kind of heat that left you sucked right out and made you want to drop and never get up again. I don’t say that easily but the day we were in Salzburg was no day for walking around. Or at least it wasn’t for us. So I have only a few pictures from there. Most of my pictures are from Steyr because I spent the most time there and also because it’s just such a picturesque spot. Have a look. Let me know if you have favorites. I always love to get feedback.

And Baby Makes Four (Winnipeg Newborn and Family Photographer)

Leave a comment

Have I ever been lucky with the sweet little girl babies  lately. On  Tuesday I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable 2 week old baby. Even though D did not want to sleep in the whole 2.5 hours that she was here,  she never cried either and she made the most amazing eye contact for a newborn! I saw her brother again who I had photographed 4 times in the past.  He’s going to be a charmer for all the girls with his beautiful big eyes and long eyelashes.

Thank you so much to A and A for bringing their kids here.  I will be seeing more of D, as she is now in my Baby’s First Year Club.

A few of my many favorites from this shoot:

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 chrismcwilliams@shaw.ca.

This last week I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful baby girl. Not only is S adorable, she is also a very happy baby, which made my job twice as easy. Lucky Mom and Dad with this little angel!

Have a look at some of my favorites:

Isn’t she sweet?  And so expressive as well.

I am working on a wedding right now and will try to have some previews  of those pictures tonight before I leave for Paris in the morning. If you need to contact me while I’m away you can reach me at chrisineurope09@live.com. I made up the new email address because Shaw is not always available in foreign countries.  I am super excited!!

Take care,

Wedding Videos (Winnipeg Wedding Photographer)

I just finished making a video of the wedding from a couple of weekends ago. Have a look:

 It’s only 11 days till I fly to Paris. Am I excited? Very excited!! Watch for pictures of the fireworks at the Eiffel Tower on Bastille Day!! Should be big WOW images!!

I want everyone to know that I will be raising my print prices in Sept.  Session fees will stay the same.  The reason for this is because I put a lot of work into images; it doesn’t matter whether you order a 4×6 print, or an 8×10 print.  Many photographers in fact, charge the same price for all prints from 4×6 to 8×10. I won’t do that. Here is the price format that I will be using:

4×6 $8

5×7  $15

8×10   $25

I am also increasing the price of DVDs purchased from portrait sessions from $200 to $250.

So if you want to avoid the price increases, book a session in August. I am also available for one more booking before I go to Europe.

Don’t delay or you will pay more!!
