More of SOHR dogs! (Winnipeg Dog Photographers)

Leave a comment

I did 2 more fundraising sessions this week for Spirit of Hope Rescue. I’m really enjoying meeting and photographing these dogs and their owners.

Yesterday, I had the 3 dogs shown below come with their owners. Each dog had a different personality. The black dog would bark and bay in response to my woofs and the big white dog would wander around the studio checking things out and happily accepting treats. The little white girl is blind, quite quiet and very cooperative. She even managed the stairs with no problem. BTW: I had to do one head switch for this picture. Can you tell which dog?

Love this dog family!
Congratulations!

These 2 had just gotten engaged so we did a few pictures without the dogs. Actually, the dogs were under foot but it didn’t matter!


Today I met this lovely girl named Lady and she really was a lady! Lady didn’t want to be still for pictures and found the smells in the studio very interesting. The only way to get her to stay still was to give her treats or get her to shake a paw.

This is the beautiful Lady:

Spirit of Hope Rescue is an amazing organization that rescues dogs from 38 Northern Manitoba Indigenous communities and finds them forever homes. In 2020, these hard working, dedicated people rescued 546 dogs and processed 1395 adoption applications. They have rescued over 3500 dogs in the last 9 years! We’ve adopted 2 of their dogs and it both cases it was a wonderful experience.

I started a photography fundraiser to help with SOHR’s vet costs and other expenses that occur when you have as many as 115 dogs in foster care at one time. These expenses include blankets, kennels, leashes, collars, food and large vet bills as many of the dogs are not well.

Here are some of the dogs that have come for a photography session with their owners for this fundraiser.

I love dogs and I really enjoyed meeting these dogs and their owners. Plus I want to continue to help this organization, so I am continuing this fundraiser for the next month.

Contact me if you are interested in booking a photography session for your dog. All you have to do is call or message me at 204.962.3424 or email me at christina@chrismcwilliamsphotography.com and we can set up a time for you and your best friend. The cost is only $50 ($150 value), which is paid directly to SOHR (https://spiritofhoperescue.ca). There is no obligation to buy any more than the one 8×10, which is included with this cost.

I hope to hear from you.

I love meeting families and photographing their children while they grow up. It has been very rewarding to have done 8 sessions with this beautiful family over the last 5 years. I was currently working on a First Year Plan for their youngest son, but because of Covid we didn’t get the 4 sessions done in a year. L is 19 months old now and his big brother is 5. Aren’t they adorable?

We had to work for smiles with this guy! What a cutie!

It was my pleasure to photograph the newest addition to this family; their 2 week old daughter. She was an absolute doll to work with and even gave me a smile!

Lucky Mom and Dad to have these 2 beautiful children. Have a look!

Some of My Favorites! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Today I am featuring 2 of my favorite kids; my great niece and nephew, who I have been photographing since they were born. Sarah has just turned 17 and Nate is now 15.

There are many features around our property that work well for photographing people; including the train tracks (which I know you are not allowed to be on, but the train seldom comes and when it does it goes really really slowly), a forest of pine trees, a farmer’s field and lots of colourful trees. We did this session right around our property.

Have a look at these amazing kids:

It was a lovely evening last night when we did a family session for this beautiful family. The sun was out, there was no wind and the temperatures were mild.

I enjoyed photographing these cute kids!

We were at the lake on the weekend where the fall colours were amazing.

When we got back to our house, we were shocked to see that the trees had lost 90% of their leaves. The trees with the beautiful red colours were bare! I had counted on fall colours for a family session. Fortunately, the trees at the back of our property still had leaves on them.

So that is where we did the session with this good-looking family. I enjoyed meeting and photographing them.

Have a look at this sneak peek!

It was my pleasure to photograph this lovely family of 2 boys and their girl dog. It was one of the easiest, most pleasurable sessions ever, as these brothers at a year and 5 years old were so cute and cooperative and their dog was adorable.

Maddie, the dog, is a 10 year old black German shepherd. She was very comfortable coming to visit and went exploring in the house, surprising my husband, who was sitting at his second floor office when she suddenly appeared behind him. Needless to say, he was a bit shocked at first!

Here’s a sneak peek of this family:

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)

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.
