Beautiful Mama! (Winnipeg Maternity Photographers)

Leave a comment

I had an amazing response to my model call. Thank you to everyone who passed on my request for maternity models. It was much appreciated. I am booked up for the next couple of weeks, but if anyone is due after mid March, I might be interested.

This beautiful lady and her adorable 3-year old were my first models. It was  a lot of fun to work this these 2.

Here’s a sneak peek!

I love it when I get a surprise when I look at my uploaded images. This first image is an example of that. I had no idea the little one was copying what her mom was doing. I love her expression!

Call out for all pregnant mamas!

I’m looking for some models for maternity photos. The purpose of these images will be to build my maternity portfolio and possibly enter the images into competitions. I have some new gowns and some exciting ideas that I want to try out.

Applicant for this model call must:

  • be 30 to 38 weeks pregnant in February.
  • be willing to sign a model release to allow me to use their images
  • send me a photo of themselves. This can be a selfie taken with a phone.

The benefit of doing this model call:

  • Applicant will receive a free photography session and a $100 print credit.
  • This is a $150 value with no cost to you.
  • Your newborn session would be half price with another $100 print credit. This is a savings of $162.

I’ve spent the last couple of months developing and purchasing some beautiful products for my photography studio.  I want to provide my clients with heirloom artwork; products that they can’t get anywhere else.

Digital files will and do disappear, whether on a failed hard drive, lost in a drawer or on a damaged DVD.  It happens all the time. Clients often contact me to see if they can get a copy of an image that we took a few years ago. The good thing is that my archives go back a number of years and I probably will have the image stored online. But how many people have that?

Prints, whether as wall art or in an album will always be accessible and professional products will last 100 years.

Having said that, here are a few of my new products:

I love the beautiful little girl in the image below and had one of the images of her printed and plaque mounted. It looks amazing!

This image has  been accepted by the Professional Photographers of Canada (Mb).

 

I had such a great time with this group of children. I had their image mounted on canvas. It is stunning!

The next few images are of a folio box. A folio box is a box that you keep your prints in and display either on a coffee table or on a shelf with albums and books. I know a lot of people put new prints in front of old ones in the same frame. This is a great alternative because you can see easily all the prints.

Folio boxes come in all sizes, colours and materials. The one shown is black velvet and holds 8×10 matted prints.

This is how an opened box looks.

Here is a close up of a matted print. 

Albums make cherished keepsakes. They are a great way to organize and remember events in your life. I have 2 new albums. The first one is a 5×7, has a brown leather cover and hard, lay flat pages.

This album is 10×10 inches and has a black suede cover. It also has thick pages that lay flat.

Accordion books make a great gift idea and are also a handy way to carry your favorite images with you.

Contact me if you are interested in booking a session or if you had a session a while ago and would like to purchase one of these products.

Erika and Doug as Married! (Winnipeg Wedding Photographers)

Leave a comment

Love was in the air last Saturday when Erika and Doug got married. Their wedding was  at Leo Mol Gardens, the most beautiful wedding venue in Winnipeg (in my opinion). It was a pleasure for me and my team to get to know and photograph this wonderful couple. Erika had the most amazingly beautiful dress and she looked gorgeous. Both Erika and Doug looked so happy to have made this happen.

You could feel the love between these 2 beautiful people.

Here is a short preview of this wedding.

Do you need a new head shot? (Winnipeg Photographers)

Is it time for a new head shot? Whether  you are a real estate agent, an author or a teacher, you  probably will need a head shot at some point.  You may think that getting a professional head shot is not affordable but 2 digital images cost only $120. That price includes a half hour session fee.

Give me a call if you need a new head shot. My number is 204-962-3424.

Last week I did some head shots for this teacher at Red River College. Here is a sample:

Here are 2 other recent head shots:

Family of Six! (Winnipeg Family Photography)

Leave a comment

It was a great day today to do some family photos with this family of 6!

Success today equalled having 4 children under the age of 7  all look at me with some manner of a smile at the same time. Oh yes, and one of them was 2!

Here is the one that worked! It might be the only one that worked. Did I mention one of the kids was two?  These 2 older boys were totally amazing with how grown up and cooperative they were. I think their younger brother will be just like that too in time.

What beautiful children! Have a look!

This first one is a definite portfolio image.  Look at those beautiful eyes!
