Winter is coming …. brrrr! :-(

10 Oct

Hey everyone!
I can not believe another year has flown by… and so quickly! We are almost done with the short fall that we had and moving into the cold winter months. I seriously am NOT a fan of the cold. The snow can be beautiful and wonderful but that feeling can wear off pretty quickly in 30 below weather.  I am so excited about some things that have been happening for me lately and so I wanted to update a little bit!

I was asked to come teach as a guest speaker at Marion Graham Collegiate for a photo class recently and I absolutely loved it! I definitely think it’s something I would like to try again! Thanks to my cousin Caryn for the great experience!

I did another fabulous child concept shoot today with my oldest son Vincent and fantastic makeup artist & friend Tamsen Rae 🙂 It was a lot of fun and …. I can’t wait to post the result! Check out my Facebook page for that! We also have another really exciting child concept shoot coming up with two little girls at the end of the month!!  I have been making plans for some really awesome concept shoots to happen this winter with both makeup artists Jennilee Cardinal Schultz and Tamsen Rae! It’s going to be a fab winter that way!

I also finished up my Vintage Daydream sessions with Tamsen Rae doing hair and makeup and it turned out amazing!! I have posted a few shots from that shoot on my Facebook page as well, but I will definitely update the blog with some pics soon 🙂

 
Some other exciting news! Kittens!! Piper and Richard have six beautiful healthy babies, some with some gorgeous rare colors and I am so excited to do some high concept photoshoots with them, and watch them grow. 🙂 We are excited also for an upcoming cat show where Dave and Richard will be entered with Vincent, Christian and Nicholas. The boys are so excited to show off their cats and have some fun! I will definitely keep you all updated on that!

More exciting news! I am leaving for Mexico in November for another amazing Destination Wedding and I can’t wait! I know my clients are wonderful people and I so so thrilled to be sharing in this experience with them! I have of course already done some research and have found some out of the loop locations and interesting spots for photos. Eeeek! Very excited for this coming up so soon and hoping to lose a few lbs before then 😉

Other than that…. things have been CRAZY BUSY! Such a crazy crazy wonderful and amazing year full of weddings and more soon to come as well! I am working hard these days to finish up all the wedding edits and starting the craze of family, maternity and child sessions that come in time for fall and make great Christmas presents. I am looking forward to seeing and working with some families that have been repeat clients of mine for awhile. It’s always so nice to catch up and see their families grow and change over the years! I am so blessed to have such amazing clients who have supported me from the beginning. It’s hard to believe that next May it will be 5 years since I picked up a camera to begin this journey. . . WOW!

I wanted to share this recent Facebook status I posted because of a unbelievable milestone crossed:

**22,000 FANS!!!** WoW! Where to start… Next May it will be 5 years since I picked up a camera to start this journey and back then I never would have anticipated being where I am today and how AMAZING all of my fans and clients would be! Personally I was left a single mom to three boys, struggling to make ends meet (literally having to go to the food bank for my families next meal) and worrying that I would never accomplish anything of worth in life. Now I am flying across the world to photograph Destination Weddings (My DREAM ♥), getting published in magazines all over the world and collaborating with some of the most talented and successful people in the industry on projects! I really can not BELIEVE sometimes that this is MY life, and these are my accomplishments… I am truly so so blessed with the most wonderful people as clients and I am also so incredibly thankful for my friends and family who have stuck by me and always always believed in me even when I doubted myself! I love you all sooo much and all of your continued love and support means the WORLD to me! ♥ ♥ ♥

So in other words, I can not express how happy I am to be where I am today and to have met and worked with such awesome people is such a great reward. I love you all! Please check out my Facebook page for more recent updates and news at http://facebook.com/saskatoonphotography

I wanted to share today one of the amazing families that I have watched grow through the years and I am so happy to still have them as my clients! It was so beautiful to see the relationship between big sister and her little brother! Hard to believe that a few sort years ago she was a little baby herself getting her photos taken down by the river with me 🙂

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
Much love & peace – Martine

Whoa what a week in Vegas!!!

1 Sep

Hey everyone!
I am so sorry, I have been super neglectful of my poor blog the last couple months! But let me tell you… this summer has been so busy I have barely had any time to breath!

Most recently I did a fantastic wedding last Sat that could have went a little more smoothly. After driving to a location we all got knee deep stuck in a large mud pile in the middle of a huge parking lot… in a LIMO. Thanks to one of the superstar hero groomsmen we actually managed to make it out! Whew! It was a little bit of a nightmare let me tell you.. Because of all the lost time, we will be going out on a different day to do an awesome couples session and we will NOT be taking a limo 🙂

The next day I left for Vegas with a dear friend and makeup artist Tamsen Rae for a super super fun and exciting Destination Wedding!!!! It was amazing! Overall a great experience and probably one of the funnest weddings I have ever done. In the midst of seeing shows, eating insanely delicious meals, enjoying the 2 for 3$ beer experience, and walking the strip, the wedding was set in the middle of the desert in the Grand Canyon. It was spectacular and HOT. I can not WAIT to sit down and edit these photos… It was so so wonderful 🙂

Tomorrow I have a wedding with a gorgeous bride who will be wearing a …. RED wedding dress! I am super pumped to see what it will look like!

Mmm other than that, things have been pretty great! My boys and I took off and had a much needed vacation at the cabin and I took my usual yearly photoshoot of the three of them! So in love with my boys and my family, it’s always refreshing to get away and enjoy every moment of them ❤

With that, I am posting a few shots from my vacation with them!

Much love xx Martine

Wow, what a testimonial and statement!

3 Aug

A friend of mine and super talented makeup artist posted this today and almost had me in tears! I had to share ❤ you Jennilee!

“One of the best things about what I do, is being surrounded by the amazing, creative people I work with. Photographer, Martine Sansoucy, is one of these creative geniuses. If you could buy tickets to visit inside someone’s mind, I’d be first in line for a trip into Martine’s head. I swear this girl never stops thinking about shoots- and she’s not just thinking about them, she works incredibly hard
to bring her wonderful ideas to life, whether it’s for a portfolio project or a client. I absolutely love being part of her process, so when she said, “I want to do a High Fashion Owl shoot, want to help?”

Without hesitation, my answer was “Yes!”

….Even though I had no idea what a “High Fashion Owl” was…but that’s exactly what working with Martine is: Pushing your creativity into these beautiful, sometimes weird, but always magnificent places.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you: A High Fashion Owl. :)”  – Jennilee Cardinal Schultz

High Fashion Owl Concept Shoot

Catching up! Some recent photoshoots!

29 Jun

Hey everyone!

Wow, it has been super busy! To catch up I am posting a few photos from my Owl photoshoot with model Kelsey Munro, makeup done by the fabulous Jennilee Cardinal Schultz and hair done by the amazing stylist/owner at Chop Chop Salon in Saskatoon, Amanda Dreis.

I was so so happy with how this shoot turned out! The Owl is an animal I admire greatly and I desperately wanted to turn this shoot into something high fashion! Believe me cutting up fur coats to make this owl costume was a little scary.. but in the end very rewarding!

Love and peace, more later!

Martine

A day at the races! Marquis Downs high fashion concept photography!

24 Jun

Hey everyone!

We had such a great night last night at Marquis Downs! The track was said to be closing sometime in the near future and it breaks my heart. I have had some wonderful memories at the track and I have always wanted to do a vintage fashion inspired shoot there! With makeup by the wonderful and talented Tamsen Rae and Leanne Smith as the beautiful Audrey Hepburn inspired model, we had such a blast putting this shoot together!

Here are a few shots from our night at the track! Will be adding more soon!

Off to a wedding today! Have a great weekend everyone!

xoxo- M
