I photograph many individual business portraits. I have a awesome 2400 sq foot studio that I love. However, did you know I will photograph on location? I’ll set up a small studio in your boardroom and photograph the team. Business portraits of all your employees look unified with the same colour background. Let me help you make your business look professional.
Quite often when I photograph a large family, I also do mom +dad, siblings, the immediate family, grandchildren etc… If wanted. This group was my last family portrait of 2019 and was such a lovely family to photograph. Here’s a few of our favourites.
It was such a pleasure to meet and photograph Sherrie. Sherrie is the director of SHADE, and originally wanted a head and shoulder portrait. After spending some time with her and listening to her story, I felt a head and shoulder portrait just didn’t show her caring nature. Sherrie choose both of these images, but I think the second one really show’s her personality. To me it’s like we are just sitting across the table having a coffee. Professional but casual.

I was surprised when a former client contacted me to do a portrait of her teenage son with his fencing gear. Fencing ? People still do this? After a little research I realize there are clubs and even tournaments! Manitoba Fencing Association has more information if you’re interested in the sport. It’s a little intimidating photographing a teenager with a sword but this mild mannered young man put me at ease. I basically had 4 day’s to shoot, retouch, print, and frame! The portraits were for a gift for his grandma, and she just loved them.
Baby Nnamdi was only 7 days old when he came in for his first portrait. I don’t think he liked my studio as he was a little fussy. After 3 hours he settled down and I managed to take a few really nice portraits of him.
