When James first inquired about a portrait he asked for a quick snap shot. Just typing that out makes the hair’s on the back of the neck stand out! LOL I think of a quick snap shot as iPhone photography. Nothing wrong with it, I actually love the simplicity of aim/shoot. However, there is a timeless perfection of using 5 light’s in a studio setting. Attention to detail and the ability to control lighting creates an image that will stand the test of time.
James sent me a copy of his last photo to prove how long it had been since his last portrait sitting. Once the head/shoulder update was complete, I wanted to re-recreate the same pose…. just for fun! I’m not sure who created the first image, and the name of the photographer escapes James. But I thought it was a pretty cool comparison and James did too!
My last studio portrait was a graduation portrait on Nov. 4 2020, just before the provincial government locked down non essential business’s. It’s been a long 3 months! Ironically my first shoot this year was also a grad portrait! In my opinion these portraits are essential. A graduation portrait somehow validates our accomplishment, and our parents are proud to hang them on the walls. Photography reminds us of people, places, and a feeling of past time. They tell stories and are important in everyone’s life. Congratulations to this beauty who waited a very long time for her graduation portrait!
Darlene contacted me for a portrait to celebrate her 25th birthday. She wanted something simple, timeless and classic. She inquired about bringing her boyfriend as they were going out for dinner to celebrate her birthday. Little did she know her boyfriend Tristen privately contacted me as he was going to propose during the photoshoot.
I wasn’t sure when Tristen was going to do this, or even how…but it all played out perfectly. As I photographed Darlene full length her boyfriend wanted to try a pose behind her. She had no idea what he was up to, and was laughing. I caught the pose and her expression perfectly. Once she turned around I switched to video… but this image is one of my favourites this year. Just pure joy during this challenging year.
Of course she said yes, he even brought fresh flowers. Just a beautiful, memorable shoot for all of us 🙂 Congratulations again Darlene + Tristen!!
Family is everything for this couple with 9 kids! I believe this is the largest immediate family I’ve ever photographed in the studio. During our consultation I recommended jean’s and white/cream tops for a casual look. I tried a few variations and the whole family was incredibly nice to work with. This was the couple’s 20th wedding anniversary, what a great way to celebrate!
It seem’s out of season to be photographing graduation portraits in October, but here we go. Nothing about 2020 is in season! I love the simplicity of a grad portrait. With or without a hat seems to work with every situation! Here’s a few samples of what I’ve been working on this month.
Only 10 people were allowed to attend their intimate wedding at the Selkirk Golf and Country Club. Parents, grandparents, justice of the peace, and 1 sister who live streamed the ceremony on Facebook and myself! Ok that is 11 but apparently I don’t count as I didn’t stay for dinner and kept my distance during the ceremony.
Hand sanitizer in moscow mules…Perfect party favours for 2020!
I know many couple’s have decided to postpone their special day. Glad I was able to photograph this one. All the best in love and laughter! hugs….more hugs
