NO Bench Warmers!

I had the opportunity to photograph these siblings, and their love of basketball.  Their mom requested a serious feel, as she wanted the portrait to be timeless.   I should have taken a few “behind the scene” images, as they were cracking up for most of the shoot! LOL   After a few time’s we managed to get everyone on the same emotion.  The Buckeyes and CMU are lucky to have these talented young athletes to play for them.  The group portrait will proudly hang as a 30″ wall portrait in the foyer of the family home.  The individual portraits will be in each of their bedroom’s as wall art.

Must Love Dogs

I love dogs, however my little backyard is just to tiny for them.  Photographing them is nice, as you just try and capture the moment. Unless they are trained and can “stay” +”sit” oh and just look at the camera.  Let’s face it treats go a long way!

Photographing this couple with their dogs was a little challenging, but we certainly got a few nice ones to choose from. They were thrilled and I was too!

They are without a doubt the cutest couple expecting and I can hardly wait to see the little bundle of joy. maternity-photography-winnipeg-photographybymicheleWhen you can’t decide which photo, a composite of images is a great way to show varies poses.  I think this composite really shows the love between these two.  maternity-photography-winnipeg-photographybymichele-composite-wallportrait

Dressing for family portraits is important. First you have to decide is the portrait going to be formal or casual.  Then everyone should dress in the same style. Except if you want your only child to be the focus!  This couple wanted their daughter to be the focus of the portrait.  The colour red amongst the other neutral’s make’s you notice the sweet girl.   I love how the formal antique sofa matches the little girl, and the parent’s are more casual. familyportraits-photgoraphybymichele

Such a wonderful family to photograph in the studio on a cold winter’s day.  Beautiful natural light on this overcast day. winnipeg-familyportraits-photographybymichele
