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
