Back to posting on our blog.

Well we are back. Our poor little neglected blog was crying out for some attention - so here we are. Look for us to be updating with much more frequency. We've been doing so many interesting things latley that we want to share with everyone.

One of the cool things about being a photographer is the variety of things we get to do. This past week has been no exception. We have been working on a project that is really exciting. We've been adding to our image database for one of our clients pictures of people having fun, enjoying life, food, shopping and more. We put the call out to get some models to our friends, family, family's friends and got a great response. We are so lucky to have such great people in our lives. Here are some of the images.

This is our good friend Rachel from Personal Optical. She is great! She's got a killer smile and is always ready for anything. She was actually on a crutch when we were shooting (imaging Tiny Tim without the hat). We had her walking up and down the streets for over an hour and she just kept on smiling!

Meet Debbie. She was also out with Rachel and pretended to shop at a local florists shop. Luckily the weather co-operated and we had some great sun and they even had an outdoor display!

We also got some great downtown shots and visited the Market Mall. It is a great downtown shopping experience on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30am - 3:30pm. If you are in downtown St. Catharines check it out.

Here is Debbie again as we stopped for lunch. Some really great window light on this one!

We also enlisted Debbie's daughter Brittany to come out and do some shopping with us at the mall. We honestly had trouble keeping up with her energy. Debbie had been "coaching" her all day on how to model so when she got there she was raring to go.

One more stop at the arena and we found this little guy. It was actually his first time ever on skates and he was doing a great job. He sure kept us entertained.

Adam and Jory slideshow

After we posted a couple of Adam and Jory's pictures the other day we got some great feedback from them and from Jory's sister Amanda (who's wedding we did in July). Here is a shot of Amanda (my Amanda), Jory and Adam in front of the fountain at the Casino in Niagara Falls. What a great time we had!

What better way to intro their slideshow then with their comments. Thanks guys, enjoy the show.

Jory & Adam's comments:
Hi Chris and Amanda,

We had so much fun with you guys. We really have to do that again, minus you two taking pictures. The pictures look great so far and we cannot wait to see the rest.
On top of getting our engagement photos done, we really enjoyed spending time with the two of you. You are wonderful people.
Thank you for making us so comfortable because not too many people enjoy getting their pictures done.
We also cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you as you truly are amazing!!!

Thanks Again!

Jory and Adam!

What an awesome night with Jory and Adam! We met them at the Niagara Fallsview Casino last night for a very cool evening and fun engagement session. It really felt like a double date with old friends.

They are way too cute and sooo sweet. We started our night with dinner at The Famous and it was so great getting to know them better. After dinner we wandered around the Galleria then ducked outside for some cool night shots. It was freezing out and it was adorable to watch them cuddle up to each other.

We were all turning into popsicles so it was back inside for some more fun by the fountain and at The Famous. I just love how cute Jory and Adam were sharing a strawberry shake at the counter! Special thanks to everyone at The Famous for helping make it a perfect night.

I think some of the best shots were right before we said goodbye. Everyone was totally relaxed (although shivering) in front of the casino. The lights and fountains were such a romantic backdrop.

Thanks for a great night guys! We hope you love the pictures and can't wait to get together again.

All I have to say is spend time with your kids! They will keep you young. There is nothing better then a little voice whispering to you "Daddy...I love spending time with you and Mommy" after a fun evening.

And I have no idea how, but Matthew somehow got a hold of a real lightsaber. I think he took out the tree in our front yard. Have a look below.
