Lea and Shawn’s Mini Wedding

Lea and Shawn were wed at a small ceremony on January 11. (They have plans for a bigger celebration in October.) I still have a few photos to work through. For now, here is a sneak peek at a few of my early favourites. Watch for the rest to be posted shortly.

Gus remembered me from the engagement shoot. He still wasn't very impressed:

A Different Portrait of Dr. R.

After we photographed the portrait to be used on the cover of Dr. R.'s book, we moved to the studio and produced this one.  It will be used on his website, where he promotes his professional training business._MG_1143-Edit-2-800px-logo

P. Family Album Digitization and Restoration Project

Old family albums often have a great deal of emotion and meaning attached to them, and this was certainly the case with the one that Ms. P. brought to me. It was very important to her that contents of her album be carefully documented, accurately duplicated for digital preservation, and in some cases restored. I carefully disassembled the album, performed high resolution, high bit depth scans of all of its pages, and then reassembled the album. From the scans that I made of album's 24 pages, I extracted the 96 photos that they contained. And now I have begun restoring some of the damaged photographs.Lumacraft-Lumacraft-Scan-140108-0002-Edit-2-before-after-copy-800pxA

Book Cover Portrait for Dr. R.

Dr. R. is a medical professional and a trainer.  In his spare time, he has written his first novel, a medical thriller.  Dr. R. commissioned me to produce this portrait of him, which will appear on the back or inside cover of the book, due to be published shortly.

Timea’s Business Portrait

Professional financial planner Timea came to me after being consistently disappointed with her previous business portraits.  She sent me a note after seeing the dozen or so previews that I posted from her studio session: "I like all the pictures, for the first time ever!"

Allison’s Family Portrait at Bronte Harbour

Allison liked the business portrait that I produced for her a couple of years ago, so she recently contacted about doing a family portrait. Our discussions led us to Bronte Harbour, where I photographed her trio as the sun set. The results work beautifully as a centrepiece display print.
