Family craziness...

     When I meet people for the first time and tell them that I'm 28 years old, I've been married for almost 5 years, I'll soon be a father for the third time and work two jobs, most of them will say how do you find time to enjoy life or how do you find all that energy and others simply tell me I am crazy. 

     Tonight, I had the perfect gift from that crazy life. After dinner, I grabbed my camera and took 2 minutes to snap a few shots. Now every photographer will tell me, the frame is not perfect, the background is blown, this and that is wrong with that image. But, I look at this image and all I see is a frame filled with love, the love that makes me enjoy life, the love that gives me all that energy and most of all the love that I'm crazy about.

From a proud crazy dad photographer,

Miguel

Félicitation à Anne-Marie et Jason

Il y a quelques semaines, j'ai eu la chance et le bonheur de faire partie d'une journée merveilleuse qui a joint Anne-Marie et Jason lors de la célébration du mariage. Je souhait à cette belle famille une vie remplie de bonheur et de santé

Preparing for your boudoir shoot…

Few Days Before Your Shoot…

  • Manicure and pedicure for a flawless finish.

  • Stay out of the sun – while a base tan will be nice in photos, red, blotchy skin will not.

  • PLEASE – DO NOT SPRAY TAN.

  • Drink plenty of water for great skin.

  • Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly. Steam or iron your ensembles and hang them properly so they keep their shape.

 

 

The Day of Your Shoot…

  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to avoid red marks on your skin

  • Eat something light but filling.

  • Have a clean and moisturized face (important!).

  • Have your hair done.

  • Use clear deodorant.

The Day Before Your Shoot…

  • Bathe, shave and moisturize.

  • Remove ALL price tags, size & care labels, etc. from clothing, especially from lingerie and panties.

  • Double-check everything is properly laid out and ready for the shoot: heels, jewelry, accessories, props.

  • Enjoy a relaxed, quiet evening.

  • Plan for a good night’s sleep – eight hours is ideal.

Most important: Take a deep breath and RELAX.

It’s completely normal to be a wee bit nervous before your shoot, but please don’t worry because you will be in very good hands. I will show you exactly how to pose and work with you to get the perfect shot.

Love at first sight!

There is nothing like meeting your brand new brother for the first time. We were really happy to be able to capture the love and magic that was shining in Arielle's eyes.  The bond that will grow between them will be unbreakable.

Mike & Stephanie's surprise wedding

After surprising everyone with an impromptu wedding a few weeks ago, I had the privilege to accompany Mike and Steph on a very fun and interesting photoshoot at the Museum of Nature. From the dinosaur era all the way to the deepest caves, I learned that no matter where you are in the world, if you're wearing a wedding dress people are going to stop and congratulate you. 

Thank you Mike and Steph for the amazing afternoon we had together.

Angie-Lee & Kevin: The New Beginning

This year, during the holiday season my wife and I had a very special party to attend. On the 27th, two of our newest friends invited us to capture their intimate but very beautiful wedding.  We had the whole stone farmhouse built in 1860 as a canvas and a very loving couple for subjects. Here are some of the shots that will stay in my head for a very long time.

2017: New You Through Photos

Happy New Year to all,

I’ve came up with three very different ways to change your life through photography in 2017. Hopefully this will inspire you to be creative and make 2017 the year that you will remember for years to come.

 

Corporate headshot.

Having corporate photos done is a way of saying that you are now ready to get that executive job you always wanted, to show how serious and passionate you are about your career and the new way to present yourself on business social media.

In other words, dress for the job you want, not the job you have.

Family Photos.

Every year you take hundreds if not thousands of photos on your phone and I can almost guaranty that none of these pictures make it to a frame or on the wall. There are many excuses for that: no time to get them printed, the pictures are not good enough and many more. Take those few hours every year or every second year to capture the way your family resembles at this point and time so you’ll be able to look back on those years. With those family photos done, you will be able to fill that mantel frame that’s been sitting there for ever or even start that family wall for everyone to enjoy.

 

Boudoir Photos

Throughout the years I’ve photographed weddings, babies and family session and nothing lights up eyes like a boudoir session reveal. Don’t get me wrong there’s something very amazing about the reveal of all those photo session, but for some reason the moment a woman sees her raw beauty and sexiness, they fall in love with themselves all over again. For me a boudoir photo session is more than just naughty photos that are hidden away or gifted to a significant other. A boudoir photo session is a pampering session, a feel sexy moment, a “I didn’t know I could look like this” moment and most of all a giant confidence booster.

 

Happy New Year!

Angie-Lee & Kevin

Un soir cette semaine, durant un beau coucher de soleil, j'ai eu la chance d'apprendre à connaître un magnifique couple qui vient de se faire la promesse de l’amour. Ce jeune couple, à l’allure un peu timide, ce sont ouvert à moi durant une belle session de photo qui immortalisera à tout jamais l’amour qu’ils ont l’un pour l’autre. J'aurai également la chance de capturer leur grande journée magique cette hiver lorsqu’il nouerons officiellement leur amitié pour la vie.
