Nine Years Later

I was surprised when Sunpreet asked me to photograph her graduation portrait. She graduated from the University of North Dakota better known as UND. The long drive North for her was worth it, as she loved the final image. I’m so happy I was able to meet her expectations, after nine years of education she’s a lawyer!

Doctors Manitoba

Imagine your new job right out of University is Emergency Doctor during a pandemic… nope I can’t either!

I truly enjoyed photographing Dr. Emilie, she was a no nonsense get it done kind of client. She has the best consistent smile I’ve seen in a while. It was her mom who inquired about my photography services and the quality of them. They had a previous photo taken, but it just wasn’t up to their standards. I’m thrilled they loved my images! I guess after 30+ years in this industry I know how to take a professional portrait!

Winnipeg is lucky to have this lovely women taking care of us. Good luck and all the best Dr. Emilie.

What’s in a name?

Sometimes I ask how my clients find me.

I was not prepared for Judith’s answer, in short it was my name… Judith recently lost her best friend whose name was the same as mine. She felt a comfort in just my name, and her story brought a tear to my eye.

Judith’s career spans over 25 years in the Financial Services Industry with the last 15 in the area of Wealth Management working exclusively with high net worth individuals and families. She has now joined TD Wealth Private Investment Advice. Judith has recently begun her first term as chair of the board of trustees for the Manitoba Opera.

I loved the colour chosen for her portrait. Judith was truly a breath of fresh air on a cold winter’s day.

Gift Certificates

This Christmas many families will celebrate the holiday’s together. If you’re not sure what to put under the tree, how about a gift certificate for a family portrait! With no expiry date, we can plan the portrait session when everyone is together. My 2400 sq foot studio will accommodate small to large families.

The kids from this family recently purchased a gift certificate for their parent’s as they were celebrating a special anniversary.

The gift of a portrait was special, as the portrait hanging in their home didn’t even include their daughter! I was happy to update the portrait of this adorable family. 🙂

Grad + Family = LOVE!

A special request from a grad with a close knit family. After her graduation portrait was complete, the family was photographed. We did a few different poses, but I only post my clients favourites, and sometimes mine 🙂

My favourite combination of background, jeans and white shirts, Classic on every family.

It was great to photograph Mr. Werestiuk. Pat has been selling real estate for 40 years. Originally with Block Brothers and now with Remax associates for the last 35 years. Normally people want to portray their very best image on social media. I recommend two looks, one business and a more casual. Pat arrived at the studio with business and casual attire. We tried a different colour background, but soon went back to the dark classic look to keep both looks professional.

Pat’s choice of clothing reflected his outgoing personality. He played hockey most of his life in Winnipeg, and prides himself in being a straight up and honest guy. His motto is “Making a difference … one home at a time.”

If you require the services of an experienced realtor, Pat Werestiuk is your guy! His office is located at 1060 McPhillips and can be reached at

Graduation Portraits

Watch out Winnipeg, this bright young lady is going places! I loved having the opportunity to photograph this graduate in my Winnipeg studio. We had fun with all the possible options. With and without cap, and the diploma which was nicely framed. She’s thrilled to have portraits to remember this graduation. Good Luck with your next degree!

The Vintage Truck

This family was so much fun to photograph. We did various photos around the yard. But when they asked if the vintage truck could work in a few photographs I had to see it! It obviously worked, and these were a few of their favourites.

The Bookworm

It was great to meet and photograph Leslie Smit. She required a professional portrait for the inside jacket of her new book. The Bookworm and Other Short Stories. Other books Leslie has written include, The Pond Orchestra and other poems. Alway’s a writer at heart, her inspiration now comes from her grandchildren 🙂 These two images made the cut, with or without glasses? I look forward to seeing which one is chosen for the inside jacket. Good Luck with the promotion of your latest achievement!
