| Montreal Maternity Photographer | – Another beautiful winter maternity session!

Yes, I am late! It is not winter anymore, at least not this weekend, right Montrealers? ! :-)

I had a lot of joy photographing this beautiful couple, first at their home, then in the beautiful winter landscape of a park in Ville Saint-Laurent. The winter is long, I know, but we can’t deny: it looks like a fairytale.

| Montreal Maternity Photographer | – Expecting Mr.T – Winter maternity session!

The winter might be strong outside, but sometimes the best moments in our lives do not happen during  summer!

I had the pleasure to meet this beautiful family, newly arrived from Brazil.  They think winter is beautiful and so do I! And this winter is special for them, not only because it’s their first one (there is no winter in Brasil, I have to tell you), not because it’s the first one in their new lives in Canada, but because there is someone who is about to arrive on the family!

| Montreal Portrait Photographer | – What is a fully edited photo?

I am proud to offer my clients an artistic touch in each one of their portraits. Something to remind them in many years from now the magic on the air when the baby was born, or when they were expecting, or on that special occasion. I work with textures, colors, light, layers, to bring a dreamy/fantastic mood on my photos that I believe characterize my style as a photographer. This is what I call a full edition.

I hear this quite often: “Yes,  photographer “A” gives fully edited photos, he does it in 5 minutes, in front of me and save the photos in a cd!” Or “Photographer “B” deliver 200 fully edited photos” :=)

Sorry, that is not possible!

I want to show you a few series of photos – the first image on the composite is the original photo straight out of camera ( no correction made at all), the second image is how many photographers deliver their photos – corrected for white balance, exposure, colors and contrast. The third image if a fully edited photo, a product a long time sited in front of a computer that requires patience, attention to detail, passion, and technical knowledge in a few softwares, where photoshop is the main, but not the only one. The full edition of a photo take between 30minutes to 2 hours, depending of what is being done. That is why, unless photographer A is a also a magician, and photographer B works really hard (and is supposedly being paid for that), that does not sound as reality! Check out the calculation:

200 photos x 30 minutes each = 6000 minutes = 100 hours = over 12 days of work from 9 to 5!

Anyways, I want you to see what is a fully edited photo! Take a look on the images bellow and make your own conclusions!

| Montreal Portrait Photographer | – Melissa’s Quinceañera

You might be asking why she is dressed like a princess. It’s because she is 15!

Quinceañera (pronounced: [kin.se.aˈɲe.ɾa]; feminine form of “fifteen-year-old”), also called fiesta de quince añosfiesta de quinceañeraquince años or simply quince, is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. (Wikipedia).
