STRATE PHOTO SHOOT

I had fun last month with Kay and Rita Strate as we headed up to Sun Rivers to take pictures! I’ve never taken pictures up there but was happy with the beautiful setting especially the golf course and its lush green backdrop! The Strates were relaxed and fun but apparently I tired them out because we did a lot of walking! We caught the sun going down and so had some beautiful light even though we had smoke in the air again. The Strates are a beautiful, kind couple and it was a privilege to work with them.

PIERSON FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT

I was happy to get out my camera to shoot these family photos! This is my daughter Vanessa’s family and they were fun, patient and a little crazy I have to admit! I learned how to crop a photo tilted in Adobe Lightroom and I added an aged photo treatment to several of these photos to add this beautiful effect! I’m grateful that my daughter Vanessa has a wonderful husband and in-laws that she loves to spend time with!!

AD DESIGN… WRITE A WILL TODAY

I realized that I haven’t put up some of the projects that I put together in my first year of Digital Art and Design. The one I’m including today was a semester long project for my Graphic Design class. We were asked to research several public service ad ideas. We then needed to sketch them out numerous times, come up with several titles and a logo and to finalize our design ads using black and white, colour and duotone. I had fun taking these pictures with my daughter Rebecca and her friend Miranda! They enthusiastically helped me out and I was really happy with how they turned out. For the pictures I used Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, for the logo Adobe Illustrator and for the layout I used Adobe Indesign. So have any of you out there written a will? Feel free to comment here on my blog!!

Anniversary Photo Shoot with Kevin and Melodie

 

 Kevin and Melodie-2

Check out those sweet cowboy boots!! Melodie forgot them for her wedding pictures…made sure we had them for these!!

 

Can’t believe my daughter Melodie and son-in-law Kevin were married 2 years yesterday! We were thrilled to have them come visit us from Castlegar this Easter weekend . While they were here we made sure to fit in an anniversary photo shoot! Of course Kevin always has fun and kissing Mel was probably the best part! We found a wide open field for pictures which is important for this nature loving couple!! Nothing better than hunting, fishing and being outdoors for these two…one of these days I need to take pictures of them ice fishing! Just so glad they are my kids…..

Beach Photo Shoot with Brad and Sophie

Well I was so happy to be back behind my camera last week for a really fun photo shoot! One of my daughter Vanessa’s best friends Sophie asked me to take some pictures of her and her boyfriend Brad as he was heading up north to work for quite a while. I had to fit it in between classes but it ended up being so much fun!! Sophie had lots of ideas and Brad was such a good sport with everything we wanted to try. What was really amazing is the coats that they are both wearing were completely handmade by Sophie and they certainly added an originality to the pictures!

They were both naturals in front of the camera and I didn’t have to do much more than point and shoot! When I opened the pictures in Lightroom, I was so happy with some of the shots I was able to get. I haven’t been able to do much more than open and tag them but I wanted to put up a few of my favourites so Sophie could have a “peek” at what we were able to capture that day!! I went with black and white for these pictures to capture their expressions. They’re a beautiful, fun and loving couple and that certainly showed!!
