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!

PPOC Master’s Bar / Award Winning St Albert Photographer

I’m happy to be home from Ottawa.  This years Professional Photographers conference was fantastic.  Not only did I get to see some great speakers but I got to catch up with old friends.  I also got to make many new ones.  The PPOC is truly made up of wonderfully talented and supportive people.

In addition to a great time learning and sharing, I was awarded my 2nd Master’s Bar.  It is such an honor to be recognized by my fellow members in competition.  Each bar is a great achievement and I look forward to working on my 3rd.
