Grad 2019

Time for a long overdue High School Grad blog update! I love shooting grads, it’s probably my favourite genre photographically. It incorporates such a variety of styles from headshots to detail shots to environmental portraiture to off camera flash to natural light, the whole gambit. And, 99.99999% of the time, the grads actually want their photos taken. So they cooperate! ๐Ÿ˜Ž This goes a loooooong way to making awesome lasting memories for the client. This gallery has a few of my fav images from this past grad season.

Grad: Shawna

It’s a super cool experience taking grad photos for people you’ve known since they were little. Shawna is one of those such people for me. It’s hard to believe she’s graduating! The time has gone by far too fast!

This photo below here is Shawna beside a tree she planted on the first day of Kindergarten! How fitting to have a photo beside it when she graduated!

All the best & God bless, Shawna! You’re going to go far!

Grad 2013: Alyce

Grad in Saskatchewan is, how shall we say, a wee bit different. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nah, just kiddin’! Especially when you have an awesome couple o’ kids to work with. I’ve known Alyce for almost 6 years now, which is hard to believe. Where does the time go! I was stoked to take her grad pics. She was up for anything and we had a great grad shoot. Her family through a shindig out at the family farm last night and brought my trusty fuji along and we got the shot above. We were going for the quintessential Saskatchewan Grad look. Motorbike? Check. Glorious grad dress? Check. Rider hat? Check. Camo hat? Check. Killer sky? Check! Add in some cool dramatic light and viola! It’s a keeper. ๐Ÿ™‚ All the best to you Alyce, you’re an amazing girl! ย . . . And, your escort Riley is not too shabby either. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
