Here’s another of Lana… but with her face :)

Joan & Erwin

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

Last year I when I did the oh-so-cute wedding of Joel and Cel I was able to meet their wonderful circle of friends and family, and by autumn felt like a part of the family. Now it is such an honor to be working with Joan and Erwin who are a part of that circle and getting married next month. Today we met up to take some engagement photos, and I had a blast with them (and they are just as cute and fun as the others are!). It was a gorgeous day, and I got to try out my new (awesome) wide angle lens once we went downtown.

Colin

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Today I had the pleasure of shooting a local actor for some personal photos to “commemorate” his long hair. Colin obviously has been growing his hair out for a while and tomorrow he is cutting it all off for an audition tape. As someone with long hair, I understand what a big deal this is. (In grade one I decided to cut it really short – but never again!)

He was such a natural in front of the camera – this surely speaks well of his acting :P

Keep an eye out for him… you might see him in big movies one day soon! Good luck with your audition, Colin!

Cassandra

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Okay, I admit, sometimes when it comes to me grabbing models and doing shoots I’ve planned out, I can get a little behind on editing them! So here it is, finally, the shoot I did with Cassandra just after I got back from California in November.

We revisited the old abandoned farm where we had shot her Zombie Pinups because I was just so in love with the inside of one of the barns. It has this strange (because I’m not a farm girl and don’t understand it!) series of metal rods running along grids inside, and tons of cracks for light to spill in. It was perfect for some daytime light painting! I love doing light painting on models… it’s just hard to get them to hold absolutely still for 30 seconds, but Cassandra was awesome at, you know, not breathing for that long.

Cassandra and I both hit our heads on the rods a few times, but luckily I never tripped!

After stepping over pigeon “remains” in there for long enough, she changed and we did some photos outside around the barns in her reeeeeeally cool blue corset. Not as cool as her Carmen San Diego hat, but cool nonetheless.

Kelsie sneak peak

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

On New Years Day I took a very brave Kelsie out for some winter photos. Henderson Lake, the Lethbridge location normally most overrun with wedding and portrait photographers, was absolutely barren except for a jogger and an unfortunate man stuck in a snowbank, trying to dig his vehicle out… oh, and us fools! It started to snow just as we left Kelsie’s house, which added such a gorgeous haze to the background of the photos. (I won’t complain about how long it took to Photoshop the snow flecks off of Kelsie.)

“The whole damn lot of us”

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking photos of Dawn and Brett and their four children. (The subject of this entry is a quote from Dawn when she was first inquiring about photos :P ) Although we had some cranky kids (they took turns fussing), we made it work! There was a lot of chasing the runaways, but in the end we discovered all it took was a piece of gum to make everyone happy, shown in the second photo in Dawn’s hands (notice all the kids’ attention on it!).

Also… last week, Mardell and Bob (you will see them soon when I make a big post of my favorite Litwin photos from the year) came in to the studio and brought me a Christmas gift…


…of chocolates! The key to my heart :)

I have big news coming soon ;)
