Six Month Old Cutie! (Winnipeg Baby Photographers)

Leave a comment

This 6-month old cutie came for his first photography session last week and the big flashing lights scared the poor little guy, so I had his parents come back yesterday and we did the session with only the flash on my camera. I am happy we tried again, as we got some great images of him.

I want to be happy with the images that I give my clients and sometimes the only way to do that is to have them come back another day. It’s my guarantee that you will love your images or we will do the session again.

Here’s a preview:

I had a blast with this family of four yesterday. The kids were a ton of fun and Mom dressed everyone beautifully. Have a look at this clothing combination. It’s absolutely perfect!

Here’s a preview of this fun family!

Christmas Portrait Special (Winnipeg Portrait Photography)

Leave a comment

Christmas is just around the corner. This year I have 2 very cool new backdrops; as seen below. I put Taylor, my dog to work today to be my model. As you can see, he didn’t enjoy it but he does sit still. Mostly that’s because I had him up high and he’s afraid to jump. I don’t ask much of him so didn’t feel too guilty.

This Christmas special includes a 20 minute session and one digital image (of your choice)  that will be emailed  to you. You can then use the image in your Christmas cards. There are tons of templates for cards on the Internet, so you’ll be all set. All this for only $69.00. I am trying to limit this special to Saturdays in November but if Saturday doesn’t work out for you, we can do it on a different day. You will be limited to one backdrop, so pick stars, balls, or black.

In order to get your images to you by Christmas, all sessions need to be done by Dec. 9th. Please note, this special is for November only and does not include any children under a year of age.

Pets are welcome even if they are less than a year old! Hopefully, they will look happier than Taylor.

I had some fun today with my dog Taylor, I put up some new backdrop stuff and took some pictures of him. He’s a perfect model in many ways. He’s cute and he’s cooperative. He will sit still. Only thing is that he doesn’t smile! lol

Are you thinking of having a Christmas card done with a family photo on it? If you are, I can help you out. I can custom design a unique Christmas card for you at a cost of $25. The price of the cards depends on a few factors:  flat or folded, 4×6 or 5×7 etc and also on the number of cards that you will need. Let me know if you are interested and I can give you a price.

I have a number of colours for backdrops, but this year I will also be offering some digital ones. It has become quite easy to use a digital backdrop and am planning to add a  digital backdrop to a few images.  Here are just a few of the digital ones I’ll have.

Let me know if you would like Christmas pictures done. My weekends are getting full but I do some spots available and am free some evenings as well.

I am including my Christmas special poster again. My apologies to anyone who got this in an email newsletter. I was shocked when I saw how skewed it had become!  I have no idea why either.

This special is available to families with 5 people or less and for children over the age of one.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.


Busy, Cold and Sore (Winnipeg Photographer)

Yes, I am behind in my blogging. The reason is that I’ve been shooting, subbing, editing, socializing and then more shooting, subbing, editing and socializing. I’ve had a blast. I hate winter and I hate the cold and guess what? We have winter here and the cold and has come with all of its hardness and bitterness. And sore, that is my back, from all the shooting. So I am so glad that I had a breather today to rest my back and use heat pacs and Advil and not do the cleaning like I had planned to. Also time I caught up on my sessions. These pics will not be previews but catchups.

First of all, I had a family of 3 boys, one grown up but all really fun to work with and very cooperative. Here are a couple of those. I love the candy cane face pic.

Next was a family with 4 children, 3 boys and a girl. The guys were very cooperative and fun but their little 21 month old sister had other things in mind besides sitting for a picture. By the end of the session she was having fun and I did manage to get some really great shots of her. Here are a few of those:

The kids asked me if they could make faces and I love the result.

Next came this super cute one year old.  I had already done M’s picture 3 times and it’s been so much fun to watch him grow. I love his big brown eyes and his sweet temperment.  He even posed naked with my Santa hat. Too cute!! He could be a baby model! I will be using them for sure on my Christmas poster for next year.

I love the sense of wonder in this one.

Louie came along for this shoot as well. My dogs made a lot of noise but were otherwise okay with it.

And then yesterday, I met a very charming 4 year old.  E was not only charming, but as cute as a button as well. I really enjoyed meeting this little guy and his mom.

This shoot was done in the studio. The snow is a filter in Photoshop. I love the effect. You would really think that he is walking in the snow!

That was the end of a great week of shooting. So many fun, cooperative kids. Tomorrow I have another couple of sweeties coming over. I can’t wait.

Today I had the pleasure of meeting the two beautiful children that I am featuring.  A, the little girl is 4 and her brother, also A, is 11 months. Both were a lot of fun but the little guy was not really too enthusiastic about sitting.  I got him to stay still for short periods by putting him inside of a tub and then a sled and that worked. Big sister was in charge and tried really hard to help with her brother. I will be done editing these in a couple of days but here is a sneak peak at two very cute kids!
