Grad: Michaela

Grad shoots are all but wrapped up now for 2018! It was probably the most random time of my life shooting photos this year as our 4th child was due at exactly the same time as these shoots were piling up! She was overdue which got quite dicey trying to schedule everything. But it all worked out and for that I am supremely thankful!

I started my Oxbow grad run this year with Michaela. What a great day we had. It was before the 17 billion mosquitos set in and before the weather got sweltering hot! The image at the top of this post was the last frame I shot during the shoot and I love how it turned out. We had a great sky and the colour contrast of her dress and the grass is super.


For this image we were working in full sun. I tried a new trick that actually worked really well. I held up a white shoot thru umbrella to modify the natural hard sunlight. It put Michaela into uniform shadow and caused her to be lit with this beautiful soft wrapping light that looks like flash but is all natural. I’ll keep this setup in the tickle trunk for the future for sure.

All in all we had a great shoot and got some nice shots! All the best Michaela in the future!

Arcola Grad 2014

20140516-ArcolaGrad-021

It’s that time again! Graduation is in the air and excitement abounds! I was covering grad up in the great town of Arcola, SK on Friday of last week. It was the first real day of hot sun we’ve had in all of 2014. Needless to say, I was as red as a ripe hothouse tomato afterwards. 😎 The weather was beautiful though and I was grateful for that. They raise ’em right up in Arcola, let me tell you. Both Quinn & Julian were gentlemen through and through. They were fun to photograph, had awesome families and gorgeous escorts! There is nothing more that a photographer could ask for. I was totally spoiled. 😀
