Unveiling of Painting of Daryl Reid; Manitoba Legislature (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

I love the variety in my job as a photographer. I do portraits of babies, children, families, head shots, weddings and the list goes on and on. Each session that I do is a new adventure with new people to meet and photograph. Photographing the unveiling of Daryl Reid’s painting at the Manitoba Legislature is an example of the variety in my job.

It was a pleasure to have had the chance to be a part of this special day and to photograph it. A special thank you to Sylvia Jensen, my friend and assistant for coming with me on short notice.

Here are a few images of this event.

Barb and Brian got Hitched! (Winnipeg Wedding Photographers)

18 Comments

Barb and Brian got married yesterday and had one of the funnest weddings ever!

I had a great time photographing this group of people, who made my job really easy. All I had to do  was set up a bunch of props and this crowd played along fabulously!

It’s always uplifting to see  a couple who love each other get married but this one was extra special because it was my good friend Barb, who looked smashing in her almost-white dress!

I wish Brian and Barb years of happiness as they navigate the road called life together.

Here is a sneak peek at the photo booth pictures:

Six Years Old Now! (Winnipeg Child Photographers)

Leave a comment

I’ve been photographing this little guy’s birthday parties for a few years now. This year the event was held at The Children’s Museum once again. Last year when I was there, I was able to keep up with the kids running from spot to spot and got some great photos of them playing. This year, they were running  a lot faster and it was almost impossible to “catch” them in photos! I did get some great images from this birthday party and the great bunch of kids that were there.

 

The first image is of the birthday boy with his posed smile. I caught him with a friend in the second one and I love the smile on his face in that image.

We Are (Awesome) Family! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Yesterday was a very special day for this family of 19. It was the 50th wedding anniversary of their mom and dad, grandma and grandpa. To mark the occasion their children and grandchildren came from Japan, Vancouver and Chicago. I could feel the energy and the wonderful dynamics of this extended family and I loved being a part of it.

Thank you Maria for allowing me to capture these precious family memories.

It was a happy occasion today when this family got together for great-grandma’s 90th birthday. Terrace in the Park is the perfect spot for celebrations like this, with the beautiful park surrounding and the wonderful light in the restaurant and it’s also a great place for taking family photos!

Happy Birthday D.

Here’s a preview of some of the pictures of this special event.
