Painting a Canvas Backdrop – A Tutorial for Photographers

We’ve all seen those gorgeous Oliphant backdrops that you see Annie Leibovitz use but many photographers, including myself, don’t want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on one.  For quite some time now, I’ve been contemplating on painting my own backdrop.  Really, how hard can it be?  After spending the last few months watching Youtube videos and reading many articles, I decided I would give it a try.

Edmonton Children’s Photographer – This is Jax!

Despite his adventuring, we managed to capture some wonderful candid portraits of energetic Jax.Read More

Walden W. – Westlock Newborn Session

Keith & Jennifer are pretty excited to add a sweet baby boy to complete their beautiful family.  Paige and Paisley are adorable and keep things exciting.  Sometimes squeaky toys are great to grab the kids’ attention, but sometimes they end up in the photos!  Paisley was a bit partial to the pig and frog and did not want to let go.
Congratulations again on your newest addition.

Cory & Colleen – Leduc, Alberta Backyard Wedding

Their small intimate wedding held at Colleen’s parents home was the perfect location for these two to become husband and wife.  An immaculate yard & closest friends and family was all they needed.  Lots of rainy good luck poured down leading up to the small ceremony and then the sun shined just in perfect time.  Colleen followed in her parents footsteps as they too, had a small backyard wedding.  Congratulations to you both and have a wonderful trip to the east coast.
