Child Actor Headshots|Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

When this little girl came into my studio for her actor headshots, I knew it would be so much fun to work with her! She was completely comfortable (and super cute) in front of the camera…and it’s no wonder, given her experience in acting and having two parents in the film industry! Can’t wait to see her work one day!

Troy’s Diner Inc is quite the landmark in Milton, Ontario.  The food, the décor and the service make it a place you will want to visit again and again!  Here are a few photos from a creative shoot I did with my colleague, Stacey Newman.  The boys had a fantastic time, and why wouldn’t they when they were presented with props such as delicious milkshakes, and a little Coca-Cola!

Professional printing | Photography | Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

So…you’ve had your photos taken, received your digital copies.  Now what?  Well, as beautiful as the photos can be as screen savers or shared with your friends and family on social media, there is no better place for your photos than on the walls of your home where they become pieces of art and can be appreciated every day!
In this post I wanted to feature some photos that my clients had chosen to enlarge for their beautiful home.  And by enlargements, I mean large!!  (8×10 photos are fine if you wish to put them in a frame and place them on a desk or on a bookshelf, but are really much too small to hang on a wall…unless it is for a very small wall of a bathroom or near your front door, or if you were going to do a wall gallery on a larger wall.)
For the first photo (a fun family picture) they decided to do as a 30×40 acrylic print.  If you have never seen an acrylic print, they are simply beautiful!  Acrylic prints have amazing colour vibrancy and make a real statement in your home!   Easy to hang…no fuss!

The next family photo was printed as a “standout” in a 30×40.  (Standouts are beautiful and very durable!)  It was a smaller wall, at one end of their dining room.  The great thing about this size is that it made a statement and completed the wall, without having to add anything else to fill the wall space.  The colours of the photograph were also complimentary to their décor and their neutral walls, so it really tied everything together.

The final enlargement was also printed as a “standout”.  It was a black and white image of a moment between the father and son…(one of those “in between” shots that they didn’t know was being taken!).  It was printed as a 24×36, which was perfect for the space in between their window and hutch in their dining room.

IMG_2097Finally, one question that I often get is why pay for professional printing services when you can go to WalMart or Blacks to print your photos?  The difference is in the quality.  The labs that photographers use to print your photos are of the highest quality, and basically ensure that the printers print exactly what the photographer intended in their editing.  At the beginning of my photography career, I often tested out printing services at various different photo labs that were local (due to the convenience), and it was so frustrating to view all the hard work that I spent on my editing just go out the window!  (The variation in colours that I was getting was huge, and skin tones were often really off!)  I started sending my photographs away to be printed at professional labs, and what a difference!  Finally, all my hard work in editing could be replicated in print!  The other reason for going with professional printing services is that when doing enlargements, photographers will go back to the original RAW images, and recrop them to the specific dimensions for the print, and will submit photos that are up to 25 MB+  in size (rather than the small files that clients receive on CD/DVD.)

Family Photography | Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

One of the best things about being a photographer is having the opportunity to meet so many different families, to develop friendships with them and to see their kids grow up from one session to the next!  I met this amazing family for the first time in 2011 when they were given a gift certificate for a family session.  They had never had professional family photography done before, and were so appreciative of their gift!  This summer, two years later, I received a call from them again, since they had their niece and their children’s grandmother visiting from Argentina and wanted to capture some special photographs to remember this important visit.  (Their niece was celebrating her “quinceañera”, and they wished to have some portraits done of her to mark this event.)  Here are a few photos from their session, which took place at Mill Pond in Milton, Ontario.  (To view, click on the first photo and scroll through.  Also, to subscribe to my blog, please enter your email address in the space provided below!)

Just got back from our annual summer vacation to New Brunswick where we had a wonderful time visiting family!  One of the kids favourite things to do there is to visit the beaches in Kouchibouguac and Baie du vin, where the water is so unbelievably warm (and shallow)!  Here are a few of the photos from our trip!  (The horses, which I believe were Belgian Horses, were from Plaster Rock, New Brunswick… They were so gorgeous!)
