Lexi – Children

Lexi – Children

I enjoy my job being a Photographer so much!  We really love what we do when we get to spend time visiting with kids who are on their best behavior and running around in party clothes. It’s a great life. We spent some studio time with little Lexi – aged 3.

Lexi came to us accompanied by her mom and grandma and ready to take charge of our studio. She presented herself as an inquisitive and bright little girl as soon as I opened the door to let her and her family in the door. The first words out of her mouth were to ask me, “Where is the camera man?” What a smart little girl! Mom and grandma had obviously spent some time preparing her for the experience of having a photo session.

Lexi spent a few minutes getting comfortable with us while exploring our studio and initially opted to stick close to her mom. Once she had seen everything of interest, her mom partially hid behind a wall partition, and despite her attachment to her mom, she did a phenomenal job listening to my direction as I guided her through the shoot. While I give easy-to-follow directions, like “Hug your knee…now touch your cheek to your knee…and turn this way and look up”, the directions are still not easy for people to act on while looking natural. Lexi, however, did a great job. She was super cute.

Lexi’s mom and grandmother did a fabulous job of bringing several complete outfits for her to change into throughout the shoot. Her mom also brought some really fun and beautiful props that really took the whimsical nature of her finished photos to another level. I’m in love with the photos that have Lexi in her pink angel wings! I think because Lexi’s demeanor is so angelic and her face is so expressive, she already reminds me of an angel – with the addition of the wings, it’s undeniable. The balloons and GIANT lollipop were also a hit with her. Props like toys, dolls, or other ‘found’ objects really help kids relax and look more natural in front of the camera. I have to say that I also love the contrast between the blue outfits and the pink wings and balloons throughout the photos. While putting little girls in blue isn’t anything new, I think the colour gives a really fresh look to Lexi’s complexion and eye colour. This was definitely one of our most adorable shoots.

Oksana – Maternity

I think you’ll agree that one of the best compliments is when a fellow professional thinks highly enough of your work to book your services for themselves. Recently we were honored to photograph a fellow photographer, Oksana, and her husband Ryan for their maternity session. At the time of the session, Oksana was 8 months along with their first child. She was positively glowing as she spent time with us and her husband in our studio. In addition to being extremely photogenic, Oksana’s eyes really communicate with the camera – she’s a natural model. She and her husband are also extremely nice people!Her creativity really shone through in her choice of outfits and especially in her subtle ‘gender reveal’ with the blue ribbon around her baby bump! I loved the variety of her wardrobe choices (my two favorites were the bright and form-fitting shirt, and the grey dress, which provided a lovely contrast against her blonde hair). We wish you all the best in the months ahead, Oksana!Oksana was kind enough to tell us what she liked best about her experience with us for her maternity shoot:

“Chris and Kim are amazing at what they do. Very well organized, incredibly professional and make you feel very comfortable. Kimber sure knows her poses; she doesn’t even hesitate before suggesting the next one. She has a way of making you look natural and sexy at the same time. Kind of challenging since I was 8 months pregnant! Chris is amazing with his lighting and capturing that twinkle in your eyes that makes the photographs look absolutely stunning. There’s no one quite like them and I couldn’t be more pleased! Thank you for capturing the most precious time of our lives.”
