Blended Family

I’ve notice’d over the years of photographing families that the type of family has changed….big time! I photograph more blended families, then traditional ones.  Although this family has crazy schedules, they made  time for a family portrait.  One couple live’s in Vancouver so timing was everything!    It was my pleasure to photograph this one, as I photographed this couple’s wedding 10 years ago.     Now the kids are all grown with partners.  I wonder what the next 10 years will bring?

Welcome Baby Sara

Sara is a New Years Eve Baby. These photo’s were taken on her 9th day. I always try to photograph a few differant backgrounds with differant lighting. Sara was a little angel, and I just loved photographing her. Her Grandma wanted me to create an album for her, as she could decide which photo’s she wanted printed. This is a 5″x 5″ album I designed… enjoy!

Family Portraits

One of my favourite types of photography is low key, which basically means Black clothing on a Black background. It focus’s the viewer right to the most important part of the photo. The expression! This family agreed with my reguest and the results are just stunning. I Love how they turned out. The Little baby was only 8 day’s old and wide awake for all his portraits. No way would he fall asleep, I had to wait for a blink. so… now you know my secret for those sleeping baby photos. Sometimes it’s just a quick finger!

Investment Pieces

I had a wonderful time photographing this amazing lady. Dianne Szelag owner of Investment Pieces! Her passion for the business of fashion is the driving force behind her dream come true. Dianne’s boutique, Investment Pieces, was years in the making and is much, much more than a clothing store. In addition to its clothing lines, it serves as a venue for an assortment of artwork.

Dianne wanted to give business women the opportunity to experience fashion in a whole new way. “The women I’m hoping to serve are outstanding women who deserve outstanding clothing.” Dianne’s approach to fashion is a balance between what she learned during her career as a professional fashion designer, and what she has learned through 25 years of serving clients’ financial planning needs in her current wealth management practice.

Investment Pieces is located at 749 St. Mary’s Road, Winnipeg, Manitoba. The website gives you a preview of our shopping experience — but Dianne urge’s you to come in and experience the boutique for yourself. You deserve it! I think a shopping date is in my near future, how about yours?!

NDP nomination

It was my privilege to photograph Andrew Swan.

I’m excited to tell you that Andrew is seeking the NDP nomination for Winnipeg Centre. With your help, he can be the next Member of Parliament for the heart of Winnipeg!

Winnipeg Centre needs a better MP – someone connected to our community, who will speak up for all of us. Andrew has lived and worked in Winnipeg Centre for the last 28 years, it’s where he and his wife raised their family. For 15 years Andrew has been the MLA for Minto, and has worked hard both on Broadway and on Sargent to be both a strong voice and a friendly face for the West End. 

The heart of Winnipeg is an incredibly diverse and wonderful place. But there are serious problems – health care cuts, addictions, crime, rising tuition costs – and we need an MP who will work hard to find solutions and speak up for all of us.

Kids Portraits at 21-Months

What a lovely tradition this family has.  Instead of recognizing the years, the family has Professional Portraits at 21 months then at 21 years!  I’m not sure if I’ll be around to photograph the next one, but it’s a nice thought!   I did a few with studio lighting then natural lighting, both show her sweet smile! childrenphotography-winnipegstudio-familyportraitwwinnipeg-photographkids-photographybymichelekidsportraits-childrenphotography-winnipegstudio-familyportraitwwinnipeg-photographkids-photographybymichele
