Destination Imagination 2020 (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

It was my pleasure to be a volunteer photographer for Destination Imagination, an event that my niece, Shauna Cornwell spearheads. This year it was held on March 10th at Ecole River Heights.

DI is a competition where teams compete with other teams in specific challenges. Teams that win at the Regional levels go to Global Finals. This year the finals will be held in Kansas City, Missouri.

You can find out more about this program at the link Destination Imagination Info

Here are some of the pictures that I took yesterday. I was particularly struck by the pantomime done by the group from Ecole River Heights. As you can see their production looked professional!

Studio is finished!



I am very excited to announce that the studio is finished. We need to finish the bathroom and the ceilings but everything else is done
I made a video so you can have a sneak peek. Watch it here:

Model Call for GIRLS and a chance to win a $600 package.


My dog model call was a huge success and I will be repeating it in the near future.
Here is a collage of some of the wonderful dogs that I photographed.

For my next project I am doing something different. I never had a daughter or granddaughter to dress up, so I am offering  a dress up event for little girls. The added bonus is that anyone participating in this event will be entered into a draw for a $600 package.

There is more information below.

.

This model call is for girls aged 1 to 4. I am open to including girls who are older if parents bring an outfit for them. Since this is a dress up event, I can only provide dresses up to a size 4 (for a 4 year old, or a small 5 year old).

I am fine with including other family members (including sons) for this event, but I won’t be supplying outfits for them as the focus is on daughters.

All clients who come for this model call will be entered into a draw for a $600 package. The draw will be done on March 23rd. The winner will be announced that day.

A $50 retainer is required to book your session. You can either get a refund on the retainer at your ordering session or you can use the retainer towards the purchase of products such as  wall art or prints. The retainer can be sent to chrismcwilliamsphotography@gmail.com.

I love the idea of photographing your daughter in her mom’s wedding dress! Let me know if this appeals to you and if you have the dress.

I hope to hear from you! Let me know if you are interested.



And Finally


Yours in Photography,

Christina

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.

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!

Christmas Gift Ideas (Winnipeg Photographers)

Dec. 6th, 2019

Only 19 days until Christmas.

Are there people on your list that are hard to buy for? Do you end up getting socks and sweaters for them or a gift card to their favorite restaurant or store. If so, I have some ideas for the perfect gift.

How about a gift certificate for a photography session that your special person might not be able to afford or think of.

These can be made out for any amount and would be personalized just for you. I can also have them printed and mounted for you for an extra special presentation.

Another idea is to have some old pictures restored. It’s amazing what can be done in Photoshop with images from a time long ago. Have a look at these images that I restored.

You could send me a digital copy or a print for me to and I would give you an estimate for how much it would cost to restore.

Still need ideas? There are endless possibilities for what can be done with an image; including wall art, albums or trinkets. I would be happy to meet with you to brainstorm what would work best.

Christmas Special



November is the time to get your pictures taken for your family Christmas card. And just in time, I have a November special of NO SESSION FEE. This is good for a one hour family session for up to 6 people (or dogs and people). It does not include newborn sessions.

Please note that digital images and prints are not included.

I’m really excited to use the new winter/holiday backdrop shown in the background of the above image. I used it for this image of my favorite model; my dog.


Then I added it digitally to this image of these beautiful children:

Isn’t it beautiful!

The first 2 people who contact me will also get a free 8×10 print. . I will need a $50 deposit to reserve your spot, which you can use as a credit for a print.
This does not include newborn sessions as they take more time.

Call today to reserve your spot: 204.962.3424.



Restored Images


Do you have some pictures that you would like restored? Perhaps some prints of your grandparents that are sitting in a drawer somewhere. I offer restoration services for prints and I think they would make a great Christmas gift for someone in your family.
My husband, John, has some wonderful prints of his grandparents dating back to around 1910. I love seeing how people lived then and have restored a few of them. I just worked on this one of his grandfather with his 3 brothers. This is dated 1910; over 100 years ago.


I restored this one some time ago and it is still one of my favorites.

I will accept images for restoration as prints or digitally. I can give you an estimate of the cost of restoring an image once I see the work that needs to be done.

I look forward to helping you out with your old prints.


Purchasing Older Images


Clients often ask me if they can come back to purchase images from their session at a later date.  I have every image that I’ve processed from the last  8 years and I would be happy to revisit them with you.

So if you lost your DVD of images or if you want to purchase some prints from an old gallery, just give me a call.

If you are interested, I would schedule an ordering session for you and we would go through the gallery together. I prefer viewing images with clients because we can make decisions together on what needs to be retouched or edited in a picture.

Here’s a screen shot of the oldest galleries. Do you see yours?

Let me know if you would like to schedule a session.

The wisdom of Snoopy! Love this!

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!

Fall Photography Special! (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

If fall is your time to get some new family pictures, then this is the deal that you’ve been waiting for. For a limited time only I am offering a $50 session fee with a free 8×10 print of your choice. This offer is good until the end of Sept, but can be extended if the session fee is paid ahead of time.

It is also only good for sessions done in my yard at 181 McKay Rd and is limited to 6 people. There will be a charge for more people.

Here are a couple of of the spots in my yard featuring the lovely Kristin and her LP, Mike.

This first one features a double row of trees with a long walkway between them.

I call this tree “The Posing Tree” because it is the perfect tree for posing couple of people with a seat in the middle and branches coming up on both sides.
