National Accreditation / Alberta Portrait Photographer

I’m excited to announce my 12th accreditation with the Professional Photographers of Canada.  Feline/cat portrait.

I enjoy selecting images for review and approval in the accreditation process. It’s another way to keep challenged and current; not to mention providing quality for clients.  I am already planning my next one.  I am considering Couple, Figure Study, and Executive Portrait.  My next submission will be in the new year.  Which one do I chose?

Here is a look at the submission for the Feline Portrait designation.

Sisters / St Albert Portrait Photographer

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of heading out to Edson for a graduation/family session.  I have photographed Sarah and her family a few times over the years.  It’s mind blowing  how quickly time moves forward.  It seems like yesterday that was out that way photographing these siblings together in similar dresses.

A warm and beautiful graduation day in June.  Enjoy your post high schools adventures Sarah.

 

In addition to Sarah’s grad portraits I also photographed her sister Megan.  She actually graduated 2 years ago but never did portraits at the time.  Lucky me!  I got photograph 2 beautiful girls and fabulous dresses.  Their sister Anika will graduate on 2020.  Maybe we can get all 3 together in their gowns. 😉

Grad Class of 2017 / St Albert Portrait Photographer

I’m always excited to photograph grads.  It’s a milestone moment full of exciting adventures and beautiful clothes.  I always have a feeling of nostalgia.  My own high school grad was 25 years ago but I still remember it like yesterday.

Allyson came in to Edmonton from the Edson area. Her grad was a couple of weeks earlier and because of that there was no worries about getting a little champagne spray on her vintage inspired dress.

Congratulations!  All the best for this falls college adventures.

Summer Family Portraits / St Albert Family Photographer

It feels so good to get outside and create portraits!  I can’t enough of the warmer months.  Sure there are mosquitoes but the warm sun and bright colors win out ever time.  I had a great time meeting up with the Dowhaniuk family a few weeks back.  We were marking the 1 year milestone for Finley.  Despite a bumpy week of having a cold and teeth moving around we did get some smiles.

It’s hard to believe we were doing a 1 year milestone with this guy back in 2014.  Wow, does time fly.  Gabriel you have quite the personality.  Thanks for the laughs.

Head-shots / St Albert Photographer

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer weather.  It has been interesting to say the least.  From beautiful warm days to wicked crazy wind and hail.  Mother Nature sure likes to keep things interesting.

I posted recently about black and white head-shots.  A classic and simple way to update your various profile  pictures on websites or social media.  They are also a fun update for those that want to have a little fun and creativity with their portrait.  With black and white you can focus a little more on character and personality.  Here are a few favorites from a couple of weeks ago.

 

Summer Portraits / Edmonton Engagement Photographer

The beautiful summer colors have arrived to the greater Edmonton area!  It was starting to feel like it would never get here.  Maybe it was just me. I swear each winter feels longer and longer.

A little over a week ago I had the pleasure of photographing some engagement portraits in the Whitemud Park area.  Always a lovely location in the evening…even when you have to battle a few mosquitoes.

Congratulations Jeremy and Erin!
