Free Prints!



There are 2 ways that you can get free prints. The first way is as part of a package. It looks like this:

  • Buy 5 prints of any size and get the 5th one free.
  • Buy 10 prints of any size and get 2 free!

The second way is by referring someone to me. For every person that you refer that comes for a session, you will receive a $50 credit towards prints.

Don’t delay in grabbing these limited time specials! They will be available until April 15th only!


  Please note that prices are subject to change at any time. 



The Paper is Almost Free!



There is a common misconception among the public about purchasing digital images from professional photographers. Their idea is  that because the image is digital, it does not have a cost. Nothing could be further from the truth. I created this graphic to illustrate some of the costs of running a photography business and producing an image.

There is a cost to printing an image on paper, but it is a small percentage of the costs of creating that image. I am not in the business of selling paper. I am in the business of selling my art.

I will sell a digital image to you. It will be the same price as an 8×10 print; with or without the print.

And we do need to print our images.  The following article is an interesting read on the subject:

Dog Posters



I love dogs and I know a lot of my clients do too.

I created these 2 dog posters this past year. The first one  is hanging at my front door of our 3 beasts!

I can customize this poster for you if you have dogs that shed. Contact me if you are interested and we can talk about sizes, prices and the picture of your dog that we will use.

I have this poster below hanging in our bathroom at Victoria Beach. I love the dog (people) wisdom in it.

Let me know if this is something you would be interested in purchasing.



And Finally



Yours in Photography,

I had the pleasure of meeting this little guy yesterday and he was just the most incredible baby model. At 3 weeks of age, he slept and slept and let me pose him with hardly a peep.

Here is a preview of this adorable baby boy!

After spending the last month painting my house and doing book work it has been a wonderful to be back photographing babies and the last 2 have been especially precious.

This one month old boy came to see me on Wednesday and he made my day. I love his big brown eyes and his curious expressions.

Have a look at this sneak peek!

Christmas Baby! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

My first baby of the new year was born on Christmas Day, so we did a couple of Christmasy set ups for her. Little Miss B made me work for every pose but we managed to get some adorable pictures.

Here is Miss B, born on Dec. 25th!

2019: What to keep and what to change? (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

The beginning of a new year is a great time to assess my business, to consider what what to change and what to keep the same.

What worked:

A lot of things worked well in 2018; most notably my  introduction of In Person Sales (in place of online galleries). I was very resistant to doing IPS, because I am not a sales person. I don’t ever want to feel like I am pushing someone to spend money. But it really is true that the images I show clients sell themselves and the moment when clients see their pictures is irreplaceable. It is empowering and is very gratifying to me.

I sold more products in 2018 and will continue to do so. A  professionally printed print, wall art or an album is the natural end product of a photography session. A digital image is not. Part of the art of photography is to see images printed and see a concrete sample of the image. I will continue to sell products to my clients, but will include digital images as that is what clients want.

What’s new:

I am introducing a new kind of session in 2019; a mini newborn session. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons, but most notably because many newborn moms are exhausted from lack of sleep and don’t want to be in a hot studio for 3 or 4 hours.  A mini newborn session is shorter. It is  an hour and a half, baby is wrapped for all poses and the focus is on baby pictures. Family pictures can be done at the 6 month stage when moms are more rested. I will still be doing full newborn sessions with parent and sibling pictures if that’s what your family decides on. But I think this is a great option.

As an introductory offer, and because Jan is a very slow month, I am offering 2 free mini newborn sessions. If you want a full newborn session for $125, I will deduct $80 from your session fee, giving you a full newborn session for only $45.

Pass this on to anyone you know who is expecting in the next couple of months. Be one of the first people to contact me and get this session free!
