The End of Summer Edition

Dog Sessions: Round 2


I loved meeting all the dogs that came for my first round of dog portraits.

Here are some of the wonderful dogs that I photographed  in the spring.


My goal in doing these model calls is to put together a book similar to  one that I received for Christmas last year. I love the book shown below and the adorable dogs in it.

In order to be consistent with the next round of pictures I will use a black or a brown backdrop. The sessions will likely need to be done in the studio. The other option is to hang a backdrop in the yard and do them outside. This may be easier for some dogs that are more timid. Doing sessions outdoors is always weather and shade dependent, so times would be more limited but I think it could work well.

The details of this model call are listed below and are the same as the first round of pictures. I will need a $50 retainer from you in order to book your session. As well, you will need to fill in a form with details about your dog.

I will take reservations immediately, so don’t delay in calling: 204.962.3424.



And the winner was………



A while ago, before the pandemic, I offered a little girls dress up special that included a draw for a $600 prize. I am happy to report that this little girl’s mom won the prize.  The lucky winner decided that she would like an album. I had done a few previous sessions for this long time client, so I included images from  previous sessions and created this lovely album. I know this album will be enjoyed for years to come by this family.



HeadShots



Do you need a new headshot for your business profile or for an online dating site? I can help you and make the process as painless as possible!

You can see what I am offering in the poster below. This price is only for sessions in the studio. I will do sessions in other locations for an additional cost. As well, the digital images for these headshots will be low resolution and sized for online sites. They are not sized for printing.

I will be available during the week for headshots, as well as a few spots on the weekends. This is a limited time offer so don’t delay. You can email me at christina@chrismcwilliamsphotography.com
or call at 204.962.3424 to reserve your spot.



And Finally


I love this poster which we have up in our cabin. I hope you are all “digging life” right now at this difficult time. I think many of us have given more thought to the things that are most important in life and I think this poster sums it up really well.

Yours in Photography,

Christina


Marlene and Barry: 50 Years and Counting! (Winnipeg Event Photography)

Leave a comment

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Marlene and Barry’s lovely family last Saturday on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary. Marlene and Barry celebrated with their 2 sons and their wives and their 5 grandchildren.

I really enjoyed working with the kids, who were real cuties, but  were also completely cooperative when posing for pictures!

The best part of this day was when Marlene wore her original wedding dress and Barry dressed up in a very dapper looking suit. How many of us would fit into our wedding dresses from 50 years ago? I know I wouldn’t be able to.

What a lovely couple Marlene  and Barry made then and still make now!

And here Marlene and Barry are now.  Barry bought the red and white roses for his bride. Notice the lovely smiles  on both of them.

Absolutely Adorable! (Winnipeg Child Photographers)

I met this adorable little girl today just after her first birthday. P has been walking for 4 months and is a real sweetie. She didn’t want to sit too much for me but I love some of the images that we got of her walking around. This is one of them.

I love her big blue eyes and her wisps of curly blonde hair.

Have a look!

2020 Grads: Miles Mac Collegiate (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

The grads of 2020 have missed out on the usual grad ceremonies and dinners but at least these grads got to dress up, get their pictures taken and have a party.

I enjoyed meeting and photographing these young adults and finding out what they were all doing in the fall. I was impressed by the fact that they all had plans for university and that they knew what they wanted to do.

The gowns that the girls wore were absolutely beautiful on them and the guys looked really dashing in their suits.

Here is a quick sneak peek at these beautiful grads!

Studio Reopening: ChrisMcWilliamsPhotography


I hope that everyone has stayed healthy in this unprecedented and scary time. It is unnerving to have an invisible enemy out there that can infect and kill people. It is especially unnerving to not know what the future holds, but things are looking very positive in Manitoba.

My husband and I are healthy and doing well. We have been busy painting inside the house and working on the yard, but I do miss taking pictures of children and families, so I am pleased to announce that I am opening my studio and will start to do sessions again. Safety measures will be in place, including hand sanitizing when clients come in and keeping physical distances as much as possible. More information will be sent to clients before coming for a session.

I prefer outdoor sessions at this time of the year and my yard is an excellent spot for pictures with many large shade trees. I am also open to using parks in the city, especially but not limited to Kilcona Park, Bird’s Hill Park and Kildonan Park.



Little Girls Dress Up



This special event was cut short when the pandemic hit and I am pleased to announce that I am resuming my “Little Girls Dress Up” sessions. I have even more dresses now and am looking forward to photographing the little girls in your life.

This model call is for girls aged 1 to 4. I will include girls who are older if parents bring an outfit for them. Since this is a dress up event, I can only provide dresses up to a size 4 (for a 4 year old, or a small 5 year old).  You are welcome to bring more than 1 girl but I am limiting it to 3 girls per hour session.

I am fine with including other family members (including sons) for this event, but I won’t be supplying outfits for them as the focus is on daughters.

I hope to do some of these sessions outside as well as in the studio. The trees in the yard are looking great right now and there are a lot of locations that we can use

All clients who come for this model call will be entered into a draw for a $600 package. The draw will be done on July 6th. The winner will be announced that day. You are still in the draw if you came for a session before the pandemic started.

A $50 retainer is required to book your session. You can either get a refund on the retainer at your ordering session or you can use the retainer towards the purchase of products such as  wall art or prints. The retainer can be sent to chrismcwilliamsphotography@gmail.com.

I love the idea of photographing your daughter in her mom’s wedding dress! Let me know if this appeals to you and if you have the dress.

I hope to hear from you! Let me know if you are interested.



And Finally


I found this on Facebook a while back and thought it was a great way to look at things.

It’s important that we look at the bright side of things at a time like this and see our glasses as half full.  I hope that you are all safe and healthy now that life is returning to some semblance of normal. Nobody knows when or if the world will ever be like it was before the pandemic and we have no control over that, but we can control how we treat others and how we go about our daily lives.

Thank God, at least toilet paper has become available!

Yours in Photography,

Christina

Finally; a session!

Finally, after 3 months of no photography sessions; I was able to do one yesterday!

It was great to see 10 month old L and his 4 year old brother for L’s 3rd photography session. One more session and this family will receive their photo book containing images from all 4 sessions.

We had to work hard to coax smiles out of this little guy but we got a few. Lucky mom and dad with their 2 beautiful boys!

Here’s a preview:

Beautiful Couple! (Winnipeg Photographers)

It was my pleasure to photograph my friend Kristin and her boyfriend Mike yesterday on our property. They were fantastic subjects for my first session in my yard. One of the main reasons this property appealed to me were the dozens of possibilities for photography backdrops. Here we used an avenue of trees and a huge weeping willow.
