As a professional photographer, I’m sometimes asked what I think about “school photos”. You know those companies that come into schools and take headshots of all the kids? Yeah, those.

Well, as a general rule, I find school photos to be awful. At least by my standards of photography & at least TRYING to get the kids to smile…. but that being said, I LOVE school photos. Why? Because they are HILARIOUS! At least, they are to me! My kids always do these weird awkward smiles that I never get, and it literally makes me laugh every single time I get one of those sheets home with their proofs on it.

My son’s photos from last year (JK) are my absolute favourite so far. I think I laughed for a good 30 minutes after I saw this.

I have never seen either of those smiles on my son in his whole life. Hilarious! (The second one reminds me of The Grinch’s smile. haha!)

So this year, with his SK Grad photos, I was hopeful for something awesome. I think this thumbs-up had me laughing the most.

Adorable and awkward, all at the same time!

Of course, the nicest smile he did was when he wasn’t wearing the graduation cap. What’s a graduation photo without the hat?! Luckily, doing what I do, I fixed it 🙂

So yes, school photos are awful. But they’re also really, really funny.

Windy wedding at Redcrest by www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

Sometimes, when I’m editing a wedding, I see an image that’s just begging for some “photo-manipulation“. Photo-manipulation can be when you change elements of the photo, or even creating an entire photo out of individual digital elements, putting them all together to create a scene (like I did with this image of my daughter). I actually started doing photo-manipulations before I got into photography!

Teresa and Mark’s wedding day at Newmarket’s Redcrest Golf Club was pretty windy, but we braved the wind and got some awesome photos. But, ever since I saw this one photo, I felt that it really needed a stormy tornado in the background to add to it. It was one of those “Oh, wouldn’t that be cool” thoughts. Well, I finally had the time today to do it!

In other news, I just noticed that some of my photos from various weddings are being featured on Redcrest Golf Club’s website, and on Cardinal Golf Club’s website, as well as Chris & Diane’s wedding on Caruso & Company’s website and Facebook page! Wow!! I’m absolutely thrilled that these wonderful venues & vendor like my work enough to display it on their websites and social media!

I thought I would share what I’ve been working on today!

Lately, I have been doing a lot of commercial work. One of the people I’ve been working with is Vicky from Lil Chelsea Bun Hair Accessories. LCB sells not only totally adorable hair accessories, but also fun dress-up clothes such as tutus, rompers, pettiskirts, legwarmers, etc.

Anyway! My lovely daughter, Savannah, has been modelling a lot of these products for me. This morning she was modelling a tutu dress, and the way she was running around and giggling reminded me of a little princess in a big poofy dress, running around and having fun in a castle courtyard of somekind.

I used to do a lot of photo-manipulations before I had children (you know, back when I had time to myself. haha). I even won a few contests! I thought I would take the the afternoon and have a little fun with it. So, I let my creativity flow, and here’s what I came up with!

I’m sure the “girl running towards the castle” (or away from the castle) concept has been done a hundred times before, but here’s my take on it, starring my daughter 🙂

I would love for you to comment and let me know what you think!
