I had a blast with this family of four at the Forks on the weekend. Here are some highlights of the session:

What to Wear for Family Photos? (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Leave a comment

What to wear for your family photography session? It’s an important question and one that you should spend some time thinking about. After all, you are spending money on the session and so you want to look your best.

The first consideration is to wear something that you feel good in and that you like.

After that, there are some general rules:

  • The most important suggestion that I have re:clothing for a family session  is to avoid logos, bold stripes  and patterns. Your portrait should be about your face and not your clothing. Stripes, logos and patterns will distract from  your face.
  • Stick to solid colours.
  • If you are doing a family portrait it is best if everyone is wearing clothing in the same colour scheme. You can google this one to find pleasing colour schemes. Check out this Pinterest site for amazing colour ideas:
  • A white top and denim with a white background is one of my favorite combinations. Denim works well outside with black, white or almost any colour.
  • You can bring more than one outfit to a session.

Here are some examples of families that made great clothing choices:

Shades of grey

Mixing black and white can work as well. zelia 8 15-110sm


  • Children  look best in simple clothing and plain colours but if your son is attached to his Superman outfit, bring it along!
  • Avoid collars with small children as they tend to slide up and block their faces.
  • Bring a few outfits.
  • Newborns and children under the age of one have gorgeous skin and nothing shows off their natural innocence more than being naked or wearing just a diaper.
  • White gives a natural clean look to portraits of children.

Beautiful Baby Boy! (Winnipeg Baby Photographers)

Leave a comment

This one month old baby boy was a perfect little model yesterday. One month olds are sometimes very difficult to photograph as they don’t sleep as easily as babies under the age of 2 weeks, but this little guy was a charmer and a perfect poser. I loved his perfect little mouth and full head of hair. Lucky mom and dad with this little guy.

Here’s a sneak peek!

It was session number 4 with this 10 month old cutie and what a gem he was. Mr. N can crawl really fast and is full of smiles. I’m sure he’ll be walking by his first birthday!

I enjoyed my first session after being on vacation. Here’s a sneak peek!

Adorable Newborn Girl on Day 7 (Winnipeg Newborn Photographers)

This adorable newborn, just 7 days old, rocked her first photo session. She slept through all her poses and hardly made a peep! Most newborns take 3 or 4 hours but Miss R was done in just 2! What a sweetie!

Have a look at this preview of Beautiful Miss R!

The studio is looking a lot like Christmas these days with lights and Christmas ornaments everywhere.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing 2 little cuties who were all decked out for their pictures.

The first one was this beautiful 5 month old girl in her gorgeous Christmas dress.
