This was session number 2 for this 3 month old  baby girl. She was sleepy and grumpy at session number one but look at her in these images from session number 2; which was only 2 weeks later!

It was worth having her come back. This family will now have images that will be treasured for years to come!

When you look at these good-looking parents, you can see why this little one is so cute!

Have a look at these highlights from our second session.

This adorable baby girl was the perfect little model for me yesterday. I loved holding her and photographing her was a dream. She is small for 3 weeks old but with  eating every hour it won’t be long before she’s a big girl;  which is why it’s so important to catch these moments before they pass.

Yesterday was session number 3 for this cutie pie. Miss S is 8 months old now and she just keeps getting cuter and cuter. Miss S’s parents bought the Baby’s First Year Plan and so they will get 4 sessions plus a photo book at the end of the first year! It’s the perfect way to document the first year of your child’s life. Let me know if you or someone you know might be interested in this package.

If you read this blog post, mention it to me and I will reduce the price of the special to $300!

And now, without further ado, here is the beautiful Miss S at 8 months of age. Don’t you love the bonnet and her big smiles?  I know I do!

Today’s blog post features the beautiful Miss E and also a chair from the 1920’s. Miss E is almost 2 and the chair is about 100 years old. The chair lived at the cabin at Victoria Beach for its whole life but was left out for the winter and it suffered some damage. I managed to give the chair new life by having the legs cut off, painting it and gluing it together. I think it will be very useful in the studio.

Miss E was the first child to use the chair and she made it look amazing. She was a bit shy at first but gave us the most adorable expressions after she warmed up.

Have a look at beautiful Miss E.

One of my most popular plans is The Baby’s First Year Package. For this package you get 4 photography sessions in your baby’s first year plus a hard cover 8×11 photo book. The price for this package is $350, but for the next 4 weeks, I am offering it to clients for $300. The value of this package is:

  • $125 for the first newborn session
  • $80×3=$240 for the next 3 sessions
  • $400 for the photo book

That would equal a total of $665, offering a savings of $365!!

The first year of your child’s life is one of growth and change. In face, your child will again change as much as in that year. But you might say, “I take a lot of pictures of my baby with my phone. I take pictures every day.”

The question I would then ask you is,” What do you do with those pictures?” Do you ever compile and print them? Do you make a book of them? Where will they end up? Will they forever stay on your phone or computer? Isn’t it nicer to sit down and look at a book than look at a computer?

The following are the pages from a Baby’s First Year Book that I just created. This book will be a treasure that this family will have to look back on for years to come. What a lovely tribute to this child!

These are screen captures of the book, so are not indicative of the quality of the book. You will notice that we also did a maternity session for this book and I can do the same for you.

Give me a call if you are interested in this package or if you know someone who might be.

Maternity Sessions!


Thank you to everyone who forwarded my maternity special to pregnant ladies that they knew. I photographed 6 beautiful mamas; six amazing women who were a ton of fun to work with. Some came with an older child, one came with her husband and 2 came with their dogs. I accomplished my goal of adding to my portfolio, trying some new ideas  and using the maternity gowns that I had purchased.
Here are a few of my maternity images:

Mother’s Day Special

___________________________________________________
I know that a lot of moms take pictures of their children, but often they are not in the pictures. I took a lot of pictures of my children when they were little, but I don’t have many that I’m in.

If you are a mother, this is the perfect offer for you to take advantage of.  Use it to book a session for yourself and your children. Or just for yourself.

This is a limited time special and is only available for the week starting on Saturday, April 14th. We will do the sessions in my studio or at an outdoor location.

This special can also be purchased as a gift for your mother and used at a later date. I can customize a gift certificate for you. Just send me the details and I can get that ready for you.

Please pass this special on to anyone that you think might be interested. You can email me at chrismcwilliamsphotography@gmail.com, or you can call or text me at 204-962.3424.

Hope to hear from you!



Raising a Reader


As many of you know, I was a teacher for many years. I taught grades 1 to 4 for over 30 years. One of the joys of teaching children in the early years is watching them grow as readers. Any grade 1 teacher can tell you how magical it is when a child starts to read.

There are many things that a parent can do to ensure that their child becomes a reader.

  • The single most important thing you can do is read to your child from the time they are very small. Make it an enjoyable experience and your child will associate reading with pleasure.
  • Have books around  house. Make sure you have books in a variety of genres; including fiction and non fiction.
  • Be a reader yourself. Children model behaviour; so make sure that they see you relaxing with a book.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s reading. I would be happy to help you.

Beautiful Family of Five! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

I had a blast with these 3 kids and their lovely mama. A big thank you to 12-year old Sarah for her help with set up and with her little sister. 2-year-old Grace was absolutely adorable and their 9-year old brother was super cooperative. What a great family for this little boy to be born into.

Here’s a sneak peek at this lovely family.
