Artista Homes

I had the opportunity to photograph a show home worth 1.6 million. Built by Artista Homes in Winnipeg.  Artista Homes Ltd. is a family owned company, guided by Antonino Cotroneo Sr’s 60 years of construction experience. A father’s passion inspired his four sons to realize their dream, resulting in the founding of Artista Homes Ltd.

Their goal is to revolutionize the new housing industry. Innovative ideas and cutting edge design coupled with quality craftsmanship are the groundwork of every Artista home. The importance of quality is proven by Artista’s commitment to having every project personally overseen by the owners.

Artista honors the philosophy that success is dependent on client satisfaction. The belief is, this can only be achieved by maintaining open communication. A free exchange of ideas with the client is always encouraged. Realize your dreams… allow Artista Homes to create a home as unique as you are.

Artista Homes… Innovative Ideas for Better Living

This one is gorgeous from top to bottom! It’s situated on a lake in Bridgewater forest.

Niakwa golf and country club wedding photos

Niakwa golf and country club is a beautiful setting for a intimate wedding. Just look at these manicured lawns!  not a blade out of place.  On a overcast day the lighting is just perfect.

The beautiful brick of the club house was  nice for a few casual portraits of this happy couple.

Banff Alberta on Instagram

I’ve lived in Winnipeg for most of my life, but have family all over Alberta.    I’ve been traveling back and forth for as long as I can remember!   I recently just came back from another trip as my dad just celebrated turning 86!   I also started dating a wonderful man who live’s by Calgary.  So I have another reason to head west.

This trip to Alberta was with  my iPhone,  as sometimes even photographers need a little break from all the bells and whistles.    I wanted to share a few images that I posted on my Instagram account.  westjet

Thanks west jet for the smooth ride and clean windows!



Just the drive into the mountains takes your breath away.

In The Backyard

There is still plenty of summer left for a family portrait in the backyard. When photographing in the city  it’s sometimes hard to avoid the neighbours. But don’t worry I have a few tricks for that scenario!  Keeping the neighbours out  was not the case for this  portrait.  This backyard seemed to go on forever. It’s hard to believe it’s right in the middle of Winnipeg.

I brought stools for the session, however I loved the families adirondack chairs. It keeps the portrait personal, and they match the casual outfits the family chose to wear. This portrait  will be hanging  over the piano.


I had to try a couple of locations in this beautiful yard and this large tree was perfect for a casual portrait.  The client chose this image for the Christmas Card… Yup you read that right.  This is one organized lady! familyPortraitswinnipegmb
