This little lady is 19 months old already and she came yesterday for her 4th photography session. It took a while for her to warm up and smile but once she started she was a going concern!

Here is a very lovely little girl!

It was a delight to photograph this 11 day old baby girl. She was a perfect little model for me. And so cute too!

Here is a sneak peek at our session.

Today was session number 3 for this adorable little one and she was a perfect little model. Little J was not thrilled with her cake but we enjoyed watching her try to figure out what this was all about.

Here is J at almost a year old.

Love her expressions!

My first baby of the new year was born on Christmas Day, so we did a couple of Christmasy set ups for her. Little Miss B made me work for every pose but we managed to get some adorable pictures.

Here is Miss B, born on Dec. 25th!

2019: What to keep and what to change? (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

The beginning of a new year is a great time to assess my business, to consider what what to change and what to keep the same.

What worked:

A lot of things worked well in 2018; most notably my  introduction of In Person Sales (in place of online galleries). I was very resistant to doing IPS, because I am not a sales person. I don’t ever want to feel like I am pushing someone to spend money. But it really is true that the images I show clients sell themselves and the moment when clients see their pictures is irreplaceable. It is empowering and is very gratifying to me.

I sold more products in 2018 and will continue to do so. A  professionally printed print, wall art or an album is the natural end product of a photography session. A digital image is not. Part of the art of photography is to see images printed and see a concrete sample of the image. I will continue to sell products to my clients, but will include digital images as that is what clients want.

What’s new:

I am introducing a new kind of session in 2019; a mini newborn session. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons, but most notably because many newborn moms are exhausted from lack of sleep and don’t want to be in a hot studio for 3 or 4 hours.  A mini newborn session is shorter. It is  an hour and a half, baby is wrapped for all poses and the focus is on baby pictures. Family pictures can be done at the 6 month stage when moms are more rested. I will still be doing full newborn sessions with parent and sibling pictures if that’s what your family decides on. But I think this is a great option.

As an introductory offer, and because Jan is a very slow month, I am offering 2 free mini newborn sessions. If you want a full newborn session for $125, I will deduct $80 from your session fee, giving you a full newborn session for only $45.

Pass this on to anyone you know who is expecting in the next couple of months. Be one of the first people to contact me and get this session free!

This beautiful baby girl came for a photography session yesterday.  I enjoyed photographing this 4.5 month old.

Love the simplicity of white on white in these pictures!

Holiday Backdrops! (Winnipeg Family Holiday Photography)

I’ve been very busy in the studio planning and making up 3 Christmas Holiday scenes to use as backdrops.

I’m extending my holiday special for another week as times are filling up fast for the first week.

Here are the 3 backdrops that are available:

 

The first one has bokeh lights in gold with a glittery backdrop. Mr. Santa Teddy did me the honour of posing for me!

This one has a wooden backdrop with some toys to make it look rustic.

The third one has some Christmas trees and some snow in the studio! Mr. Santa Teddy was a very cooperative model for me as you can see!
