Family Day in Ottawa.

ottawa_family_photographer_07

So here we are…that holiday called Family Day. It got me thinking about what it costs to raise a family…

Lets start with an average middle class family home in Ottawa at $300K. We should add the feeding, care and clothing of two-point-five kids for 20 years @25K. Let`s top it up with a few years in college and a half dozen trips to Disney. Add some cell phone bills and a gadget or two and you`ll approach a million dollars really quickly….

I am reminded of that joke… “I went to (___________) and all I got was a lousy T-Shirt.”

It is rare for most families to have a family portrait these days. Those that do have a DVD in a drawer somewhere that will be unreadable in twenty years and of course that notion to make prints with it has long been forgotten.

Progress…..hmmmmmn…sometimes I wonder.

Ottawa Portraits of Women

I have never really understood why people settle for less than great portraits….Companies spend a fortune building websites, buying billboard space and running ads yet many seem to forget that personalities sell things…and do it very well. People spend a lot of time, energy and money on their appearance but the bulk of people don`t actually have a great portrait of themselves or their families. I truly enjoy helping people create great images and wonderful memories…and thank my clients for the trust they have put in me over the years…

Ottawa Studio Wedding Portraits

This lovely couple decided on some classic portraits to celebrate their union…

While we love all this street photography with graffiti walls and sunglasses, I think that a decade or two down the road, classic will stand the test of time. If you missed getting a gorgeous shot of that dress on your wedding day….give us a call…It`s never too late.

Ottawa Photographer / Reviews / Referrals / Recommendations.

There are a zillion award sites on the net and fake popularity contests on social media. Frankly, anyone can go to an event with one of today`s super tech cameras and come back with a dozen good shots. That is not really what a professional photographer does…

A pro gets it right, first time, every time….On time and on budget.

A pro doesn`t call his living room or basement a “studio”….

A pro charges a little bit more than an amateur…because his experience comes through in the crunch.

A pro answers the phone when you call…and does not setup meetings in a coffee shop after his day job.

A pro had a three star rating with the Better Business Bureau and hundreds of recommendations on LinkedIn.

A professional photographer knows that his clients put their trust in him to record those moments that everyone else missed,create that headshot that helps you reach the public and takes photographs for your business that are worth a million words.

It doesn`t get much better than LINKEDIN to check out a person`s credentials…especially when one of the reviews comes from…ummmm LINKEDIN…

One day in my life…

Capturehflhfljhajklfnsdjkfn

Photography studios get some odd calls…. Even after 35 years in the profession and over 100 awards, we still get asked…”What is your cheapest package?” Sometimes, callers tell us they compared us with other studios…using their Iphones.

Then there are days like today…when I get a FB message out of the blue that shows me why I still do what I do…

Looking for a deal on photography….sometimes the best deal is someone who over a thousand Ottawans have trusted to date…
