Kevin & Erin- Maternity Session- Lloydminster Portrait Photographer

We had originally booked Kevin and Erin’s maternity session for a later date but fate had other plans for us and when the weather forecast was predicting freezing cold temps and snow for their session we decided to ‘bump’ (pun intended) the session a few days ahead. I think someone was looking out for us because not only was the weather and sunlight absolutely AMAZING but Erin ended up having their little bundles of joy 2 days after our session!

Here are Kevin and Erin’s gorgeous fall maternity photos…






Skoretz Family- Downtown Lloydminster- Portrait Photographer

I love love love photographing this family!

I mean- look at them!

I’ve known the Skoretz family for 7 years now so when I got the opportunity to do a photo session with them this fall, I was beyond thrilled.

I had been wanting to do a downtown ‘urban’ photo session for awhile and knew they would be the perfect family for it!

Here are Kyle, Chelsea, Alia, Enli and Tes Skortez…

2017 PPOC National Image Salon- Lloydminster Portrait Photographer

Every year, just before spring, the Professional Photographers of Canada hold their annual National Image Salon. This is where active/accredited members of the PPOC, from all over Canada, enter their best images to be evaluated by a group of highly qualified judges. These jurors view in excess of 700 images to determine those images worthy of being accepted into the Salon Exhibition.

Images deemed worthy of inclusion in the final Salon Exhibition are given a score of Accepted, Merit or Excellence. These images are then published in PPOC’s Annual Inspiration Books, which are beautifully bound 12″ x 12″ hard-cover albums.

Each year I watch the judging live online even if it means waking up at 6:30am and am always blown away by the amazing images that are submitted.

My goal was to have at least two images accepted in the Salon Exhibition this year.

My goal was achieved- this year I received one Accepted and TWO Merit images!

Below are my submissions and results from the 2017 PPOC National Image Salon.
