What a very cold and gross day! Here’s a little something to warm your thoughts….

19 Oct

Good morning!

What a gross cold day! I can’t believe this time of the year has come already… [insert excitement for Mexico Destination wedding here!]. I am so so excited for a weekend of fun with the boys and also some amazing photoshoots with some old and new clients! I am also getting ready for an awesome concept shoot on Monday… yay.. wait until you see what I have up my sleeve for this one!
Anyway I got so warm and fuzzy looking at these photos from the summer. My son Christian is fishing for minos at a Blackstrap and I love all the things the sun did that night πŸ™‚ Thought I would share and hope it warms your thoughts as well ❀

xxoo – M

Last Breath … Child Concept Photography by Martine Sansoucy in Saskatoon

13 Oct

I hope everyone is having a great night!

I was CRAZY enough to have a sleepover birthday party with 7 boys and man.. . it doesn’t look like I will be getting any sleep tonight! Hence the late night post haha πŸ™‚

So since I have not been posting lately I wanted to catch you up on a few of my latest shoots and work! This is another recent shoot I did with an amazing little girl named Kayleigh who I had such a great time working with! Thanks again to her mom Tangyne for allowing me to use her daughter for this concept shoot, I had such a blast with both of you! I have literally wanted to do this concept for a couple of years now and I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out! πŸ™‚ Thanks to Tamsen Rae for doing the makeup for this concept shoot as well πŸ™‚

Last Breath
By Martine Sansoucy

A thousand days have past
Since I felt your last breath

Forever I am a prisoner
To this lost eternal world
Without haste it has taken from me
Taken every last thing I loved
A darkness that reaches so far
Setting mercifully with the sun

Death once held my hand
Closed around me with its angry fist
Never gracing me with its ending
Never whispering its last words

So here I remain
Lost but not found
A slave to the days and the nights
One heartbeat away from a breath
One breath away from life

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.Β  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 πŸ™‚ 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!!Β  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 πŸ™‚

 
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. πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰

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 β™₯), 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! β™₯ β™₯ β™₯

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 πŸ™‚

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