“Sunset, North Saskatchewan River” (2014)

“Sunset, North Saskatchewan River” (2014) 32inches by 40 inches naturally hand-dyed cotton, silk and wool hand stitched and hand beaded

The latest fibre art piece is completed after an ambitious and labor intensive 2 months. This is the largest piece I have tackled to date measuring in at 32 inches by 40 inches. The fabrics and threads have all been hand-dyed in hand crafted natural dyes. Cutch, lac, madder, pomegranate, logwood and tansy are the plant-based materials that bring the color to the piece. Thousands of glass beads add the light and sparkle to this Alberta landscape. Unfortunately an internet picture can’t convey the scale, it is really a piece that makes you stop and look (and touch…….the beading is really cool to touch!).

Here are a few of the details:

Working large definitely has its challenges, from the amount of time the piece takes, to finding a work space that works for stitching, plus finding a mounting method that works. The bigger piece definitely does provide more visual impact than the smaller pieces I have done. It was a great experience to work large and it is something I will do again.

Red Deer Child Photographer – Portrait By The Lake

Photo shoot at Lake Isle, AlbertaPhoto shoot at Lake Isle, AlbertaI love it when I have the opportunity to shoot at a cottage or cabin location. There is something refreshing about how informal the shoot is. It is a relaxed atmosphere with backgrounds of water and trees and docks. The shoot is all about capturing the favorite moments of summer, the time at the lake, and the time with your family……what could be better!

Interested in a photo shoot at your cottage or cabin? We photograph in the Red Deer area year round, but are also available for the Parkland County and Lac Ste. Anne County area during cabin season. We also are available for shoots on Pender Island, BC 6-10 times a year (please give us a call for exact dates).

max cross process blogAfter an incredibly long winter it is great to finally have the opportunity to shoot some outdoor portraits. Shooting on location is fun, and when you have the opportunity to shoot at a completely new location it makes for some really creative shooting with fresh looking images.

Early season gives the warmth and texture of brown grass which adds to the rugged and relaxed feel. Most people think of outside portraiture being green trees and manicured lawns, but I have to admit I like the honesty of shooting in naturally occurring surroundings.
