Some of My Favorites! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Leave a comment

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:

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely Nursing graduate and her family. I love the picture below of her 2 children, but unfortunately, her 2 year old wasn’t cooperating so he didn’t get into this picture.

Here is Nadine in her nursing uniform.

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


2020 Grads: Miles Mac Collegiate (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

The grads of 2020 have missed out on the usual grad ceremonies and dinners but at least these grads got to dress up, get their pictures taken and have a party.

I enjoyed meeting and photographing these young adults and finding out what they were all doing in the fall. I was impressed by the fact that they all had plans for university and that they knew what they wanted to do.

The gowns that the girls wore were absolutely beautiful on them and the guys looked really dashing in their suits.

Here is a quick sneak peek at these beautiful grads!

What a Beauty! (Winnipeg Child Photographers)

I know for sure that I get the cutest kids to photograph and if you look at this session and the one before it, you will know that this is true.

This 4 year old beauty is a wonderful model who loves the camera. She follows directions like a pro and is stunningly beautiful. Don’t you agree?

I photographed my first little girl’s dress up sessions yesterday and it was a hit!

This is Iszie, whose birthday is today. The last time I photographed her she was 3. She’s just as adorable now as she was then.  Iszie loves posing and the camera loves her. In these images she is wearing her mom’s grad dress and her grandma’s wedding dress. Isn’t she adorable!

Happy 6th Birthday Iszie! You are one of my all time favorites!

Dog Days part 4 (Winnipeg Dog Photographers)

These 3 dogs came for pictures last night and kept us hopping, but it was a ton of fun. I loved every minute of it.

I had photographed this first dog a few years ago so it was great to see him again. This is Murphy, who is 9 years old and is a German Shepherd, Husky cross. Murphy was the best behaved dog last night and was easy to manage.

This is gracious, elegant Murphy.

Rocksy is a Boxer, Bulldog cross and is 11 years old. Rocksy had a few issues being with the other dogs and reminded me of my Zara with all of his snarling.  It took us a while to get him to sit like this but he actually sat and left the hat on  long enough for me to get this great picture of him.

Doesn’t he look gentlemanly with this hat on?

I love retrievers and this 4 year old was as handsome as they come. Buster has a beautiful coat and lovely eyes. He was very excited to be in the studio and it took a while for him to settle down but look at him! He’s gorgeous.

I’m having a blast editing these dog pictures and I have 3 more dogs coming today! Here are 3 more of the dog portraits that I’ve done.

My first dog today is a mix of St. Bernard and Italian Greyhound named Opoho.  Opoho (usually called Opi) is 8 and came to his forever home from The Humane Society.  Opi was nervous in the studio and kept going to the door to show that he had had enough. But treats won him over and we got some cute pictures of him. I love his gorgeous coat!

Presenting Opi!

This is our dog, Fergus. Fergus is 13 years old and is mostly Lab. Fergus was not happy to be in the studio and was anxious to leave but I got this one image that I like.

He is our biggest dog but he is the most gentle of our 3 beasts. He is laid back and doesn’t get too excited about anything. He lets Zara, my dog, do whatever she wants but when he’s had enough he only has to look at her and Zara backs off. Zara has a healthy respect for Fergus.

Isn’t he adorable!

I took Zara down to the studio again and this time I took her dog bed and it went a lot better. She actually lay down and relaxed, although she was none too pleased. The interesting thing was that the other 2 dogs howled while she was down there. I’m sure they thought that Zara was in grave danger.

Zara is mostly Corgi but she has a lab head and body. Zara is a very nervous dog and will sometimes act aggressively when she is afraid. Zara loves walks and toys. She will sometimes carry 2 toys around and will always choose one to bring to bed with her at night.

This is Zara, my heart-dog and the best friend a girl could have.

Fabulous Dog Days, part 2 (Winnipeg Dog Photographers)

Today I am featuring 3 more of the dogs that were my models for the book I want to do featuring dogs.  I am thrilled with how these images turned out and how much fun these dogs were.

This is Sadie, a dalmation/whippet cross, who is 15.5 years old. Sadie is an active, busy dog who hasn’t slowed down very much. She has a lot of personality and is very expressive. Her eyes tell you everything. We got some amazing images of Sadie and her human person Kim, who have an incredible bond that shows in the pictures. Kim describes Sadie as her heart-dog and anyone watching these 2 can tell what an beautiful bond there is between them.

Sadie even obliged me by sitting on my dog couch! Isn’t she the sweetest?

This is Jerry, an 2 year old German Shepherd/Greyhound cross. Jerry was rescued from Spirit of Hope, the same place that I got my Zara from. He has the biggest pointy ears and a huge smile. Jerry loves walks, food and treats. He was bursting with energy when he first came in but cooperated beautifully for his portrait. Jerry is lucky to have 5 people in his family who love him and give him lots of attention.

Isn’t he handsome?

My third dog featured today is Roo, an Australian herding dog. Roo is just over a year old and is full of beans. I’ve known Roo since she was adopted and she has calmed down a lot since she was a puppy and is learning to listen and be a good girl. Roo is probably the most affectionate dog I’ve ever known and likes to sleep right beside you at night. There is never a dull moment with Roo around!

I love Roo’s big smile and how her ears go out sideways!

What a cutie pie! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

This little cutie pie came to see me on Saturday for her third session. This little one is now 18 months old and is a going concern. She was particularly fascinated with the blue chair seen behind her in the first image and she didn’t want to sit anywhere else!

Here is an 18 month beauty!
