Cadbury - AARCS

  Here is a lovely little boy that I shot for AARCS a couple of days ago.  I rarely have cats in to the studio as they are generally MUCH happier in their own environments.  But Cadbury was just the opposite.  He came out snuggly and inquisitive and ready to be petted.  The studio flashes didn't freak him out and he was completely entranced with a piece of string!  I fell in love with him - if you are looking for a cat, he is absolutely an amazing choice! Here's his link and bio:

Cadbury was rescued from a rural area during the brutal cold snap in February.   We are glad that we were able to get to him in time, before he ended up freezing to death.   This handsome fellow is not only adorable, but he’s incredibly friendly & docile to boot!  We believe that he is a young adult as he’s quite energetic and playful.  He seems a little shy & hesitant with other cats so we think he’d do best with another young kitty who just wants someone to play with and won’t get too territorial or bossy.  Cadbury seems to really appreciate the company of dogs and thinks they are his friends too!

Cooter

Shannon set this shoot up as surprise for her husband - and kept it a surprise for a couple of months! We had an awesome fall day getting shots of Cooter.  He is SUCH a sweetheart! Here is one of the final composite's we put together for them.  These are his "personality" looks, (though he is just one big pile of personality!). Have I ever mentioned how much I love working with dogs?

Annie Pattison

  The beautiful and extremely talented Annie Pattison came to Chipperfield Photography for her new, braces-free headshots.  What a fun afternoon.  She is a dream to shoot - so photogenic and gorgeous.  And when her parents brought us back Dairy Queen, the day was a full fledged success!  We got so many beautiful shots, but here are the final selections.  I so look forward to seeing her perform at games and around town, and to following her burgeoning career.

Sherwood

Brrrrrr - it's a super chilly day out there.  I'm ensconced in my lair working on images with the heater going beside me. I was looking over the (very) long list of blog posts that I want to do and the images go back....a long way. So I thought I would choose some from the end of summer to make me feel warmer....if only virtually. I was asked by Lori and Brian at Gold 'C' Ker, to go the training fields in Kathryn to work with a group of wonderful people and their Golden Retrievers.  What an amazing day watching them work! There were some young uns there learning what to do with the birds, and some more experienced dogs as well. I love the water launching shot - Sherwood was one of the few that were brave enough to really leap out there as the water level was quite low. 
I will post some more of the other dogs over the next few days, but in the meantime, this is Sherwood! (Isn't he gorgeous?)

Francesca

 I have known the lovely and graceful Francesca for a long time and it was an absolute pleasure to have her come to the studio to get new headshots done to promote her business, Tantric Path. We had a fabulous afternoon, complete with the final minutes of the Canadian Womens Hockey gold medal win. Here are a couple of her final choices - and take a moment to check out her web site as well!

Pandamonium

I have been meaning to post this painting for months!  I was asked by a client to create this for one of her friends and clients.  He was moving in to a new condo she had helped him find and she wanted him to have new art for his place. I was so touched that she asked me to create this for him. It was fun to play off something cute with a touch of humour. This is Pandamonium!

Christine

 I have had the pleasure of working with Christine several times now, and each time I am so excited because she is so easy to work with.  She needed updated headshots for a few different things and opted to do professional makeup for some of them.  So we made it an afternoon and had the lovely Erin Teolis in to do hair and makeup part way through. Here are a few of her favourite shots!

Laurie-Anne - a sneak peek

OMG - I had an old (but looking fabulously young!) friend in for a boudoir shoot on the weekend.  And did we have fun?  There were lacy garments everywhere, a touch of wine, music and some very hot shoes! Laurie-Anne decided to treat herself to a session and celebrate how freaking amazing she looks - huge kudos to her. The fabulous Erin Teolis did her hair and makeup and made L.A. feel like a dream.  It was an awesome afternoon and I can't wait to show her all the shots tomorrow!
Here's your sneak peek...
