The Castle

I’d love to introduce you to Barbara Remnant & Dave Hall.  They are the nicest couple and own this beautiful brick home known as The Castle, which was built over 110 years ago. Half the house is dedicated to airbnb and is located at 663 Langside st. in the heart of Winnipeg Manitoba. Photographing this big old house was fun, and as an interior decorator I made some minor adjustment’s using their items. They were both extremely accommodating for any suggestions I made. I truly believe they are super hosts! As I can see why they are highly rated and committed to providing great stays for guests. They’ll be working on updating the airbnb website .

The main floor has an open concept living room dinning, kitchen, and powder room. All done in neutral colours with a pop of yellow.

The second floor has a large bedroom, with wardrobe, dresser and desk. Known as the Turret Bedroom, which provides great light and a view of the beautiful old tress in front of the house.

Comfortable Third Floor has 3 bedrooms, lounge with coffee/tea bar and full bathroom.

If you’re looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable room in the heart of Winnipeg this is your place!

Casual Family Portraits

Oak Hammock Marsh is such a wonderful place for a family portrait session. The boardwalk is a bit of a hike in, but worth it for background! This family is casual, and wanted to wear plaid. Perfect attire for this setting. Photographing the whole group and each family was requested and why not? If you’re going to make an effort to have the whole family there, it only takes a little bit more time for individual portraits of each family. After everything is photographed you pick the best image from each sitting. Then what? What are you going to do with 6 or more photographs, you only have so much wall space …. right? I suggested a college of everything this family wanted. This way they save on wall space, and still have all the images together. What do you think of a college? or just one large one of everyone?

This was the sweetest family to photograph. I love the colourful clothing for their son’s baptism. Grandma flew in for the ceremony and they wanted professional studio portraits. We took so many I knew it was going to be hard for them to pick during the ordering process. We managed to narrow it down and here are a few of my favourites.

Back in June I photographed a 40th wedding anniversary for Eddie Calisto-Tavares and Gill Tavares. They had a beautiful celebration in their back yard. I must say it was extremely hot and very windy, but we made the best of it.

I met Eddie years ago though Women Business Owners of Manitoba. Eddie owns and operates Options 4 Success. Eddie wanted a jpeg file for facebook, and uploaded it to her title page. As you can see it just didn’t fit and looked horrible. Facebook title pages are horizontal….very horizontal. When I saw how Eddie’s family portrait was displayed I was disappointed. I took it upon myself to create something a little special so her family heads weren’t cut off. On the new title page the negative space on the far left is required for the profile photo and name. I think it’s a great way of showing special events.

How the image was displayed on the title page.
Black space on left to accommodate profile photo and name.
