Newsletter Dec. 2019: Model Calls Coming Soon! (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment


Model Calls: Coming Soon!



I’m very excited to be designing my new studio. The drywall is getting taped and sanded today and will be ready to be painted very soon. I can’t wait to decorate my new space and use it for taking your pictures!

To celebrate the opening , I will be offering different model calls: maternity, newborn and head shots, to name a few. Watch for some amazing opportunities!



Pictures That Tell a Story


Every picture should tell a story and I love the story this picture tells.

This image was taken on July 7th, 2018; our wedding day. The brown and white dog is my girl, Zara and the black dog is John’s dog, Fergus. Zara is very possessive of me and in this picture Fergus came over to give me a kiss. As you can see, Zara was upset that Fergus was so close to her Mommy! I love this picture for the great memories it brings back and for the story that it tells.

I love to tell stories with photography and to preserve a time in our lives. Let me tell your stories with pictures and preserve your memories for all time. All you have to do it give me a call and we can set up an appointment. Leave the rest to me. That simple!!

My number is 204.962.3424.


Christmas Gift Ideas



Today is Dec. 12, 2019.
Only 13 days until Christmas.Are there people on your list that are hard to buy for? If so, here are some great gift ideas I found on Facebook. This list comes from “becoming minimilist.”

 

I would love for someone to get me a snow clearing service, or a hairdresser gift certificate. Or how about this: a gift certificate for a photography session!

It’s a great gift idea and I can get it printed and mounted for you so that it looks really pretty. The certificate can be personalized and I’ll be sure to get it to you before Christmas.

Give me a call if you would like one.

204.962.3424.



Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


The image below shows our 3 beasts, all decked out for Christmas. I didn’t manage to get them all to pose for me at the same time, so this is a composite. I also added the hats afterwards. (I can do that for you as well!)

Aren’t they adorable! I cannot imagine my life with dogs. They give us so much pleasure and are the best companions!

I hope you all have a fun Christmas and that your new year holds good health and much happiness!


And Finally



I love this poster. I had it mounted for our bathroom at Victoria Beach. It makes some great points just in time for the new year!



Yours in Photography,

Two Beautiful Children! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

Leave a comment

I enjoyed meeting this beautiful family and photographing their 2 children. Their beautiful baby girl was 3 weeks old yesterday. She wasn’t keen on sleeping and made us work for what we got, but in the end we got some lovely pictures.

Big brother is 4 and as sweet as he is cute. Lucky parents of these 2 kids!

Here’s a sneak peek!

Two Precious Little Ones! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Leave a comment

This lucky family has 2 precious little girls; one is 2 weeks old and the other is 3.5 years old. The older sister was a perfect little model and actually wanted to stay here to do more pictures. Her baby sister put me to the “baby whisperer” test and unfortunately I failed. She was not going to sleep at my house! Nothing made her sleepy; not music, not heat and not rocking! She didn’t cry. She just didn’t sleep and sleepy babies are best for posing. We still got some beautiful pictures of her with wonderful awake expressions!

Here are 2 beautiful sisters!

Adorable and Sleepy Baby Boy! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

This adorable baby boy was just 6 days new today for his first photography session. I don’t do a lot of sessions in client’s homes, but this house worked very well because of all the window light; not to mention the 2 beautiful boys!

It was worth the trip to La Salle to photograph this little guy and his big brother, 3 year old L.

Here’s a sneak peek of this good-looking family:

This little one month old was determined not to fall asleep, which was perfectly fine, as he gave us some beautiful pictures with his big blue eyes wide open!

Have a look at Awake and Gorgeous!

We are Moving! (Winnipeg Photographers)

We are Moving



86 Taunus Dr has been sold and we will be moving to 181 McKay Rd in St. Clements. My husband and I are super excited about the move as we will have more space and a beautiful yard for our dogs to chase rabbits and squirrels in!

Our moving date is July 26th. We will be developing the lower level of McKay to be a photography studio. In the meantime, I will be using the living room of our house for my studio. There is a lot of window light in the living room, so it will work very well. My goal is to have a studio ready for use before Christmas. Most family sessions are done outside in the summer and fall, so the only sessions done in the house will be newborns and small children. Our yard also has a lot of trees that will make lovely backdrops for family sessions!

McKay is only 10 minutes past the perimeter off of Henderson Hwy and it’s a lovely drive. I hope to see you in my home and studio!


I want to give kudos to Jeff Michie, our real estate agent, for his efforts in helping us find our future home. Jeff was easy to contact and gave us a lot of useful information and advice throughout this process. Have a look at http://www.gregmichie.com! You won’t go wrong with this team!



Restoring Photos



Below you can see some examples of photographs that I’ve restored. They were all taken in the early 1900s. I love bringing the details out of these old photos and seeing what hidden treasures are in them.

You probably have some old prints like these at your house. Why not surprise someone by getting a couple of them restored as a birthday or Christmas present?  I can give you a free estimate for what the cost of restoration would be.


You can see 1906 in this picture of some people having a picnic in a St. Norbert Park.

My grandmother is the baby being held by her grandmother on the left side. I’m not sure of the date of this one.


I’m amazed at the details that came out of this print once I worked on it. I think this one is 1904.

Beautiful Brown-Eyed Boy! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

Leave a comment

This beautiful baby boy, at 13 days new, came to see me for his first photography session yesterday. He was a perfect little poser, who actually preferred being on his stomach (lots of babies like being on their back better).

His 11 year old brother was a joy to photograph as well.

Here is a preview of this baby boy!

 

Look at those eyes and that curly hair!

Isn’t he absolutely gorgeous!

Big brother was happy to pose with his baby brother.

It was a pleasure to have photographed this adorable baby girl and her beautiful triplet sisters!

After having 5 baby boys in a row it was really fun to dress up and photograph this baby girl. I loved every minute to working with her and her sisters!

Here’s a sneak peek of this session:
