Loving British Columbia

After some time spent establishing ourselves in our new home in Victoria BC it is with great pleasure that I am now returning to my photography work that I enjoy so much. If you know anyone looking for a photographer consider sending them my way. I have many years of experience in head shots, family shoots, sibling shoots, maternity shoots, and shoots just for fun. Take a look over my website or facebook page and give me call.

Head Shots…it’s always a good time to get them done.

Winter isn’t always ideal for outdoor family shoots, but there’s really never a bad time for head shots.  Do you know how many different uses there are for head shots?! Here’s 40 or so just to name a few…I especially like number 43 HAHA.

Winter Shoots

In the winter there are two things that challenge families looking to get photos done, the cold and the limited light.  While we can’t do anything about the temperature, limited light doesn’t mean we can’t still get some great shots.  Late afternoon shoots can still be really pretty, you’ll just get a different look from full day light.img_9186-edit-copyimg_9196-edit

How do you really feel about posing…

Do you ever see family photos of other families and think, “Those children look so adorable they are smiling so perfectly…I really don’t know if my family photos would go that well?”  Well lets just set the record straight, no children really want to pose for family photos, there’s those few little model types but they are rare.  My own children could be yelling at each other one moment, and a moment later “cheese”.  And that’s the reality of it, for every “awe” shot there’s an “OMG” shot.  But a lot of times those shots end up being so true to the child’s character that even they bring a smile to parents faces.  So next time you think your kids would never make it through a family shoot, or that everyone else’s children must behave better, cut yourself a break…kids will be kids and they are adorable in all their expressions 🙂 Most importantly, makes sure you pick a photographer who is quick enough to capture all the “awe” and “OMG” shots, then you’re in good hands.
