Poon Clan ~ Winnipeg Lifestyle Portrait Session

 I came across a bunch of photos taken during our usual Sunday Family dinner and it is one of my most favorite days of the week because we get to enjoy a lovely dinner and see the babies.  The only thing that would make it more fun would be if my brother and his family could join us :(.  However, I will be seeing a lot of them come summer so we will have our own family suppers then!

My mom's house is perfect for photo sessions as she has a huge picture window and a beautifully bright, white living room, so the light is always fantastic for pictures!  The subjects don't hurt the images either.  I decided to focus more on Aiden because he is the second child, soon to be the middle child, and I know better than anyone, the fate that becomes the middle child.  He deserves some pictures of himself.

The Animal Within ~ Winnipeg Creative Fashion Photography

While it has been a bit dreary outside I have had the utmost pleasure of making use of my indoor studio!  Once the sun shows up and the snow disappears, I can assure you I will be back to shooting mostly outdoors, but since it has been less than delightful outside, I have taken strides to keep my creativity prospering by shooting in the studio! 

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting a concept by Jess Mann, the model and fellow photographer.  Her concept was The Animal Within and symbolized strength, power, beauty, grace, and the ferocity of a woman.  We had the assistance of David Oro, an artist who's studio is literally next to mine, for the body paint, Stacy Kozakewich for the amazingly big hair, and Nicole Velasquez who did a fabulous job on the makeup.  The preparation for this shoot lasted much longer than the actual shoot itself, but meh, that's how most fashion shoots run.  Anyhow, check out some of our Behind the Scenes photos and some of the final chosen images from the set!
