What a Sweet Baby Boy! (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

Leave a comment

This little cutie was a perfect little poser at only 5 days old. We finished our session in just over an hour and he barely made a peep. Not only was he a perfect little model; he also is incredibly beautiful, with his curly black hair, his little pug nose and  his full lips.

Here is a very sweet baby boy on Day 5!

Photo Restoration (Winnipeg Photography Restoration)

There is something very satisfying in restoring a photograph; at looking at a picture that is over 100 years old and wondering about the people in the picture.

My grandmother is the baby on the lady’s lap on the left in this first picture.  The lady who is holding her is her grandmother, my great great grandmother.  I had to do quite a bit of repair to the picture as it had gotten folded at one point and was quite damaged. Some of the faces were hard to bring back as there wasn’t enough information in the original, but I’m happy with what I ended up with.

When I look at this picture, I can’t help but wonder about the people’s lives. These are my ancestors. Why did they dress in black? Was that comfortable? What were their personalities like? What were their wishes and dreams? Was life easier than today?

My husband, John, has been going through a lot of his “stuff” and we found some old albums that his grandfather, Norman Black,  put together. The picture above is a 5×7 but the pictures in the albums are all 3x2s, so they are quite a bit smaller than the one above. Since, they are smaller, it’s harder to bring out the detail. Here are some of the ones from 2 albums that I did work on.

This first one is a man looking at a river. It’s unclear where this is taken but it says April, 1904. Amazing how this image has come back to life! The man looks like his head is not attached, but on closer inspection it looks like he was wearing a white shirt with a white-collar.

 

This image says St. Norbert, 1906. I love how this picture tells a story. The woman on the right is enjoying a glass of what is probably wine and the lady directly behind her is almost glaring at her. I wonder why? And I wonder what the occasion is and who they are. Too bad Norman Black didn’t put their names. He did put names for some of the picture but a lot of his print has faded.

This image made me laugh out loud. What is this man looking at? Why does he have 16 on his shoes? Where is he and why does he have strange ladies in the pictures right behind him. I think Norman Black had a great sense of humor (as does John) and also a great eye for photography. I would love to have had a conversation with him about his photography.

Do you have pictures from long ago that you would like restored? Are their pictures that you would like to save before they are completely faded?

If you do, give me a call. I can give you a quote for restoring your precious photographs. My number is 204.962.3424.

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.

Yours in Photography,
