Grad + Family = LOVE!

A special request from a grad with a close knit family. After her graduation portrait was complete, the family was photographed. We did a few different poses, but I only post my clients favourites, and sometimes mine 🙂

My favourite combination of background, jeans and white shirts, Classic on every family.

It was great to photograph Mr. Werestiuk. Pat has been selling real estate for 40 years. Originally with Block Brothers and now with Remax associates for the last 35 years. Normally people want to portray their very best image on social media. I recommend two looks, one business and a more casual. Pat arrived at the studio with business and casual attire. We tried a different colour background, but soon went back to the dark classic look to keep both looks professional.

Pat’s choice of clothing reflected his outgoing personality. He played hockey most of his life in Winnipeg, and prides himself in being a straight up and honest guy. His motto is “Making a difference … one home at a time.”

If you require the services of an experienced realtor, Pat Werestiuk is your guy! His office is located at 1060 McPhillips and can be reached at

Graduation Portraits

Watch out Winnipeg, this bright young lady is going places! I loved having the opportunity to photograph this graduate in my Winnipeg studio. We had fun with all the possible options. With and without cap, and the diploma which was nicely framed. She’s thrilled to have portraits to remember this graduation. Good Luck with your next degree!

The Vintage Truck

This family was so much fun to photograph. We did various photos around the yard. But when they asked if the vintage truck could work in a few photographs I had to see it! It obviously worked, and these were a few of their favourites.

The Bookworm

It was great to meet and photograph Leslie Smit. She required a professional portrait for the inside jacket of her new book. The Bookworm and Other Short Stories. Other books Leslie has written include, The Pond Orchestra and other poems. Alway’s a writer at heart, her inspiration now comes from her grandchildren 🙂 These two images made the cut, with or without glasses? I look forward to seeing which one is chosen for the inside jacket. Good Luck with the promotion of your latest achievement!

Seeking a job after graduation…

Lina first inquired about a new portrait for Linkedin, as she will be posting her resume and wanted to look professional. After looking at samples on my website she realized I also photographed graduation portraits. I was happy to offer both in the studio. Lina looks confident for business and casual for other social media platforms. Congratulations Lina on your graduation, and good luck on LinkedIn. 🙂

Business Portraits

Business portraits, don’t alway’s have to be head and shoulders, 3/4 length is also very striking. We just need to figure out what to do with the arms without looking to stern or silly. I had the pleasure of photographing Lilia Angeles, and these are the images she choose as an insurance agent. Nice variety with different backgrounds to accommodate her advertising campaign. I personally love the black on black. It’s a timeless classic! A White background give’s you the opportunity to use the image in marketing material. Either one is perfect, as the viewer should be focusing on you and your business, not the background.

Child Portrait

I don’t recall what I received when I turned one, probably a little teddy bear or something to chew on. I’m sure if I dug out my photo album there are photos. Can you imagine receiving a convertible Mercedes for your first birthday? This sweet ride has many working features, and is remote control for the parents. This little guy was dressed in a suit, and his cookie actually looks like a phone 🙂

Adorable family

Even though it was a tiny celebration, the parents went all out. They created a festive background. These photos, and many others will be memorable for years to come.

Family Portraits

Sometimes people want to know, “How long will the portrait take to photograph?” My answer. “It depends on the kids and puppies” Seriously, you can’t make kids sit still, look at the camera, smile at a stranger for 5 seconds. I have excellent eye/hand co-ordination so I’m able to capture moments in a split second. Also being a little silly behind the camera doesn’t hurt either. This family was thrilled with a lot of the images, because after almost 2 hours they didn’t think I was able to capture anything.

My favourite image of this adorable family, and they choose to hang it on their wall too!

Capturing moments is what being a portrait photographer is all about. I love creating memories for people to enjoy down the road. This family had a large frame with multiple cut outs for images. We were able to find the perfect image for each space. The result was georgeous!
