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.

Anniversary Portraits

Most families need a reason for a portrait, and this couple was celebrating 50 years of marriage! What a great way to celebrate the family you’ve created. Consultations are a must with every family portrait. First we have to decide if you’re formal or a casual family. Then clothing and colour options. If you’re going to hang a family portrait you might as well co-ordinate the clothing colour with the room. This family wanted something a little more formal in shades of blue. I always request families to stay away from patterns, flowers, and stripes as I prefer the focus to be on faces not clothing. The mom is the only one in pattern and the focus is right on her in them middle. I think the end results turned out great! Congratulations again to this beautiful family.

Baby Albums

Valerie loves her grandkids. I’ve had the pleasure to photograph the last three for her. Each one has a baby album, not for the parents but for her! For this album Valerie decided to put her portrait with the baby right on the cover. This is a 5×5 Album, so the left hand side is actually the back cover. Remington was only 3 day’s old when I photographed her. She was so cute, but a little fussy at the same time. Baby’s should be photographed while they cry, as this is how they communicate. Enjoy the album.

The Black and White pose is always my favourite. Timeless and classic!
With her big sister…how cute is this?
Those toes!
Love this page of communication! LOL
Family hug time
