PPOC-Sk Awards Banquet

This week my mom and I travelled to Humboldt Sask to attend the PPOC ( Professional Photographers of Canada) Saskatchewan Branch Annual Awards Banquet. I have been a member for just over 13 years and in that time I have managed to win three Print Show awards and was nominated once for Photographer of the Year. Well this year I doubled my awards by winning three in one night! Here are the winners. Thanks again to my fabulous models.

Location, Location, Location

Part of the fun of being a photographer is finding fabulous locations and doing a beautiful image, somtimes it is finding an ugly or suprising setting and doing something even more amazing. I am glad my clients trust me because I have asked people to pose in some pretty strange places and they don't know what it will look like in the end but they indulge me anyway.

I was out for a walk at the lake and spotted this area. As soon as I saw the flowers I was thinking about the shot I wanted to do with Ellie. When I showed the final image to people at the lake they asked, " Where did you find that field of flowers"

It seems when I get an idea in my head and decide to do it now there is no other time and it is going to get done even if it may not be logical. It poured for two days so even pushing the stroller in was a chore and then where I wanted to sit her was a mud pit so I just laid a blanket down.

Pat was so happy I wore his shoes.

This was from the summer and my husband has been suggesting that I share this with you. Just this week I had the great pleasure of photographing a good friend of mine who keeps things running at the radiostation.

On location with a little sweetie.

Two of my favorite things are working on location and suprising parents when they thing their baby didn't co-operate or that nothing turned out. I like to go with the flow and even though little mister "r" was not thrilled about his photo shoot this particular evening we had a great time and I love these shots. It has been amazing to be around this family and watch them grow from doing their wedding pictures up to their beautiful six month old!
