blog hat and smiles_2269There is always something fun about using a hat in a portrait. People always seem a little happier and have a little more fun. Maybe it is a little bit like playing “dress up”. This woolly hat certainly brought out the smiles.

Red Deer Child Photographer – Children in the Park

 child photography in park - red deer, alberta

This photography session in Coronation Park (Red Deer, Alberta) presented perfect shooting conditions. Warm weather. Slightly diffused light. Lots of smiles. Everyone was in great spirits, and aren’t those just the happiest red shoes you have ever seen. (The little guy was quite attached to them!)

We have two, maybe three weeks of leaves left on the trees. It is great to be taking of advantage of the beautiful scenery and shoot portraits outside. In a week’s time we will be shooting with golden backdrops of fall leaves.

Red Deer Photographer – Fall Photography Special

red deer child photography

It’s that time of year again, summer is winding down, children are back to school, and everyone is thinking about having pictures done before winter arrives. September is one of the best months for outdoor photography, the backgrounds are colorful, the temperatures are mild, and the weather usually co-operates (unlike October where the weather seems to have a bit of an attitude).

It has been a little while since I have put on a “photography special” so I have decided September would be a great month for one. Here’s the special!

September Photography Special

– valid Monday to Friday after 5:30 pm
– available from September 9th to 30th

All sitting fees for photography sessions of 1 to 8 people are only $30.00.

(Regular sitting fees range from $75.00 to $105.00 so this is the time to save money and have a photography session done.)

The special is valid for on location, in studio or a combination. Please give us a call or text at 403-588-4032, or send us an email at hunterphotographics@ shaw.ca for more details.

Red Deer Photographer – New Studio Photography

This portion of the studio is just finished being repainted providing a whole new and fresh look for shooting. The area was previously painted in dark blues with a dark floor, so the minimalist earth tones with a lighter floor is quite a refreshing change.

The simplistic background and lighter tones create a modern feel  as more and more families aim for relaxed and casual studio portraits.

This particular section of studio will easily accommodate groups of up to 10 people for photography. If a larger group requires studio photography, our studio area with risers and white doors has accommodated a group of 22 people.

Yellow – photography in Red Deer, Alberta

canola portrait 4Yellow is definitely a summer color. It is the color of sunshine in a child’s drawing, lemonade, and if you live in central Alberta, canola. Yellow fields are everywhere this time of year and they are one of my favorite backgrounds to shoot against. Canola fields lend themselves to relaxed and natural portraits and are perfect to capture moments of a child’s exploration.

Portrait in the Woods

outdoor portrait

Red Deer, Alberta has a wonderful park and path system running throughout the city. The wooded areas provide a lovely backdrop for casual portraits. This time of year presents backgrounds of lush greens making it a great time to capture the essence of summer in a photography session. A summertime portrait will be a welcome addition displayed in your home as winter approaches (remember how the snow arrived October 13th last year!).
