I was reading this on line this morning and I thought I have to share this. This is truly what we do with our boudoir sessions. We build confidence and empower woman to feel and know they are beautiful inside and out.

Please note this is not one of our clients, however we have had many share similar stories. Photos are credited to Photography by Lindsay Rae and the story is from her client featured in the images below.

 

No Revisions…It’s My Story

“No revisions…it’s my story. Fucking post it…lol” 

I think that is introduction enough for this powerhouse of a babe!

—-

“When Lindsay asked me to write a blog, my first thought was, I just won’t  be too personal.  But I changed my mind.  

My sister (Alice) is a photographer and is also very good friends with Lindsay.  Alice used to send me Lindsay’s photos raving about them, encouraging me to book a session with her.  I was always so blown away by Lindsay’s work and it became a dream of mine to book a session with her.  The problem was, the timing never felt right.  I never felt good about my body or like I had the money to do something like that for myself.  Well, come to find out, those were just some of the small things stopping me…

In September of 2015 my mundane but seemingly happy marriage took a turn I NEVER saw coming.   My husband called me with our happy family van in a ditch and told me he needed help, but didn’t know where he was.  Over the next year alcohol became very prevalent in my life and the life of my three children.  My husband had always had this way of talking down to me and making me feel “not good enough”.  I just brushed this off as a personality trait and tried to ignore his behavior, and I thought I was.  I didn’t really pay attention to the fact that I had stopped working out and gained nearly 40lbs.  He wasn’t valuing me, and now, neither  was I.  My children were forced to see situations that they shouldn’t have, police became involved in our life and I was lying and ignoring my core beliefs to protect our family.   March 17, 2016 was the first time he hit me.  I just remember standing there staring at him.  This person that I had been married to for 14 years was suddenly a complete stranger.  With my jaw on the floor and tears in my eyes I was realizing that this person looking back at me was not the man I thought he was.  And CLEARLY I was not the woman he thought I was.  He was NEVER going to do that to me again.

The next few months were spent as roommates with me having the excruciatingly heavy decision weighing on me if I should stay for my children or leave to “get Mary back”.  He moved out in May and continued to tell me he wanted to make things work all while still drinking and continuing his controlling, abusive and manipulative behaviors.

On Monday, September 5th 2016 I made the decision to leave.  This date will forever be embedded in  my mind.  I made the decision to protect myself.  To protect my children.  This, however, was also the day that the life that I knew was gone.  All the plans that we had made for the future now changed forever.

After Thanksgiving Lindsay was running a special and I had a fleeting moment of  f***  it, I’m booking it!  And I did.  As my January 9, 2017 photo session date came around, I began again.  I’m not ready, this is the worst time (I moved out of my house on January1st!),  I’m pale, my skin is dry and I have moving bruises all over my body.  I also had the nagging voices around me…”But WHAT are you going to do with THOSE pictures”, “That’s a big investment”, “You don’t even have anyone to share them with now”.  Of course, none of which were helping me.  But, on Monday, January 9th at 9:15am in 5 degree weather, I got ready and went to my shoot.

When I arrived at Lindsay’s studio I was full of butterflies, excitement and nervousness.   As soon as Lindsay opened her door my mind was put at ease.  Lindsay and Erin are two of the biggest ambassadors of women that I have ever met.  They were my loudest  cheerleaders that day and I felt, for the first time in my life, like the most confident woman in the world.  Not only for the shoot but even when sharing my story with them.

So my answer, to all those people that  asked the question “what are you going to do with those pictures?”, that is not the question you should have asked.  The question should have been, “What are those pictures going to do with you? ”

My shoot was amazing, empowering, and telling of how I should be really feeling about myself and what my self-talk should sound like.  I don’t just mean looks.  I should love me, all of me.   And be around those who treat me with dignity and respect.  And cheer for me, like Lindsay and Erin did that cold January day.   I moved in to my very own apartment for the first time in my life at the age of 37 with three children in tow.  I am showing them strength, courage, and power.  I hope that one day, after all the changes and pain, that they are able to see this.  

I could literally not ever see those photos again, not hang them on a wall, not share them with a future lover but those photos, they gave me strength, courage, confidence, and the ability to see that those qualities were in me all along.  That’s what THOSE pictures did for ME.”

Sudbury Boudoir – Cheap Boudoir Photography

OoooooOoOoo I’m sure I’m going to ruffle some feathers with this one.

CHEAP!? WHAT?!

Hear me out.

Every time someone emails us with questions about a boudoir session, they get a personal email back, as well as an email that also has pricing information. And I would say about half the time, we never hear back. I asked someone recently if they had any luck finding what they needed, and the response was “you’re too expensive.” I didn’t know whether to be flattered, or offended. So I asked her, what information did you find elsewhere that you decided to choose them instead? She said that she was going to get the 2 hour session with unlimited outfits, and CD of unedited images for $99.

~Nails on a chalkboard~

At that point, I congratulated her on her upcoming wedding and wished her the best of luck, and we hung up. She wanted CHEAP BOUDOIR. There are so many things that I could say about this. There are so many posts about why photography costs what it does, so I will leave that to the financial experts. What I really want to focus on is the bottom line:

When you’re taking your clothes off in front of someone you don’t know, is CHEAP really a word that you want to use to describe the experience?

There is so much that goes into this experience, believe me when I tell you that it’s not just about getting your picture taken. There is an enormous amount of preparation beforehand, on your part, and on our part. Will your cheap photographer be there to help you pick out lingerie that will flatter your figure, and talk you down when you’re nervous the night before?

Another thing to think about: PRIVACY. These are photos that are intimate in nature, and while we always keep them classy, not every photographer is like that. These are photos that, when poorly done and shared, could potentially ruin careers. Personally, I don’t think that boudoir should be as taboo as it sometimes is, but let’s face it – the entire world doesn’t necessarily feel that way. Are you willing to trust those photos to someone who A.) may be kind of creepy to begin with and B.) might put the photos online for God knows what? Is that savings worth the potential backlash that could come from hiring someone you don’t trust?

We have “fixed” several boudoir sessions in the past year or so. By fixed, I mean that my clients had a boudoir session done elsewhere, a “cheap” session, and hated it so much that they came to us to have some quality photos, and an amazing experience.

I believe that there are certain genres of photography that carry a higher responsibility than others. Yes, all photographers should be accountable for their quality of work, and their business ethics, but there are some photos that you will never, EVER get back. My top three: wedding, newborn and boudoir. For wedding and newborn – you never, ever get those days back. Newborn sessions usually take place when that new little life is less than 10 days old. Two weeks later, you’ve lost that newborn look, the snuggly cuddly smushy face. It’s gone, and you never get it back. Weddings are highly stressful and require a cool head, organization, and problem solving – and again, you never get that day back. When your dad hugs you a little longer as he’s giving you away to your groom, if your photographer misses that, it’s gone. Yes, you can stage it again – but it’s never really the same.

And finally, boudoir. I could go on and on for hours about this, because it frustrates me SO much – but when you have a woman undress in front of you, she is vulnerable, and if you do a poor job or make her feel bad, you are not only taking bad photos, but you are messing with her spirit. You are reaffirming the thoughts that she probably already has in her head, negativity that she doesn’t need because she’s already telling herself mean things.

We refuse to lower our standards to the point where any woman walks out of our studio feeling bad about herself. Some photographers are okay with that, and some women are okay with that – and that’s okay, they aren’t our clients. I will stick to my standards and the WHY behind what I do.

One of the clients that came to me after a horrible experience elsewhere recently told me:

“When you pay cheap, you look cheap.”

For some things, that might be okay. Cheap toilet paper might be uncomfortable, but it won’t hurt you. Cheap boudoir can not only hurt your feelings or your privacy, but could leave you feeling bad about yourself from an experience that should make you feel amazing.

Don’t settle for cheap when it comes to something this personal and intimate.

And because every post is better with a testimonial her are three from recent boudoir clients.

“I did a boudoir photo shoot with Riki back in November for a Christmas gift to my boyfriend. I had a blast, she made me feel comfortable and confident that I could do this. I went back to get a few more photos and she helped me narrow it down, as she had taken so many amazing photos. Honestly I would go back and do it again. It’s an interesting adventure but I can tell you, you build a lot of confidences doing this.”

Mrs. M.

“I did some boudoir pictures with Riki as a wedding gift for my husband. I was extremely happy with the whole experience. Riki made me feel very comfortable and confident which made my pictures awesome. And Riki got all the best angles! 😉 I would definitely recommend Riki and Pixatron if you are planning to do boudoir pictures. Best experience ever!!! Thanks again Riki!!!!

Mrs  C.

“Ricki did such a great job with my boudoir photos! Not only was the photo shoot a super fun experience, she also made me feel completely at ease and the photos are like something straight out of a magazine! I would highly recommend a boudoir photo shoot with Ricki to anyone who wants to feel incredible about their body. She’ll bring out the best in you!

Mrs. McD.

And of course an quick sample of our work.

PLEASE READ THIS PAGE OVER FOR ALL DETAILS OF PIXATRON’S 3nd Annual DOG DAY EVENT !

There are only 8 openings left out of 18.

DOG DAY EVENT

CALL 705-524-5713

DOG DAY IS Saturday June 10th (by appointment)

 

ImageNumber_0011retuncropped

VIEWING will be the week of  June 13th. (by appointment)

This studio day is dedicated to all our furry friends of the DOG world.  As a previous dog owner my self, I know how important it is to have a beautiful portrait of your best friend (especially after they are gone).    So, “Dog Days” was created.  Not only are we doing this for you, but we are also doing this for the local SPCA.  We want to give something back to them, so for each session we will donate $30 to the SPCA and you have to bring in a bag of Dry Dog Food, cat food or non clumping cat litter that we will also bring to the SPCA.

ImageNumber_0001ret8x10

We are planning to create the best image of your dog showing his or her personality.  Soooooooooo, this will not be your typical “Studio dog portrait day”.   If  we get it in the first few shots awesome, sometimes we may have to take like a million shots, whatever it takes.   We will be focusing on your dog and not so much on the background.  As you can see by our samples the attention is drawn directly to the dog, and you know what that dog’s personality is just by looking at them.

ImageNumber-0010retuncropped

FIVE  Reasons Why You Should Trust Us With Your Dog’s Portrait

1. Your dogs portrait will be better than any snapshots you might already have.

2. Because we know you love your dog.

3. Your dog wishes to help out with the SPCA

4. You will not find better prices for the best Dog Portrait

5. We know your dog wants this as your dog already emailed us telling us so.

Don’t disappoint your dog!

DOG DAY IS Saturday June 11th  (by appointment)

VIEWING day is Tuesday June 14th (by appointment)

  Sessions are approximately  20 minutes long, like we said earlier sometimes we can get those magic captures in the first 5 minutes, plus, your dogs might stress out, breathe heavy, tongues hanging out (which isn’t a bad thing) so we found 20 minutes is more than enough time.

German Chocolate Cake Cookies

German Chocolate Cake Cookies

Found this receipt here and just had to share it…

http://www.adashofsanity.com/2014/01/german-chocolate-cake-cookies/

These German Chocolate Cake Cookies are a delicious chewy chocolate cookie with a gooey caramel pecan and caramel frosting.

Today I am featuring one of the best cookies you will ever eat, ever! A cookie that will become so addictive you will make them in large quantities and freeze them just to be able to have them for a week or two at a time. Making one of the traditional cakes, German Chocolate cake into a a cookie was one of the best recipes I have ever made. How can you really go wrong with caramel, pecans and chocolate?

My favorite thing about this recipe is that everything is from scratch. This chocolate cookie is so chewy and moist making it the best platform for the frosting. Bake them today, as they are hands down amazing, delicious, unbelievable , out of this world and the best cookie ever, as quoted by my friends and family that tried them.

If you are looking for an easy German Chocolate Cake recipe – I have a No Bake German Chocolate Cheesecake that is to die for. But honestly either one of these recipes you will love!

No Bake German Chocolate Cheesecake - caramel jar

What brings me the most joy when making this cookie, is my husband. He loves these, had I made these when we were dating I think we would have gotten married even earlier, he loves them so much it would have created an instant proposal.

Enjoy!!! XOXO San

German Chocolate Cake Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 3 dozen

German Chocolate Cake Cookies

German Chocolate Cake Cookie – a soft, chewy chocolate cookie with a rich caramel, coconut, nut frosting.

Ingredients

    • Chocolate Cookie
    • 2 sticks butter, softened
    • 1 cup light brown sugar
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 large eggs, beaten
    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • Pinch salt
    • German Chocolate Frosting
    • 1 cup evaporated milk
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 3 egg yolks
    • ½ cup butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
    • 1 cup chopped pecans
    • Optional: ¼ cup chocolate candy coating, melted for drizzle

Directions

Chocolate Cookie

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a stand mixer or large bowl using a hand mixer, blend the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla and eggs. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and blend until combined.

Drop the dough by tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets, 12 cookies per sheet, and bake 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.

German Chocolate Frosting

Add evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolks, butter and vanilla to a large pan and place on stovetop over medium heat.

Stir so that it becomes well combined. Continue stirring until thickened, this takes approximately 11-12 minutes. I set my time for 11 minutes and 30 seconds, this seems to work every time.

Once thickened remove from heat and add coconut and pecans. Beat until thick enough to spread.

Spread frosting over the tops of cooled cookies.

Optional: Drizzle with melted candy coating and let set up. Top with white chocolate heart. See note.

Note: I melted some pink chocolate candy coating, put it into a Ziplock lunch baggie, snipped off a small corner. Then on some wax paper drew hearts with the chocolate. I let them harden, then gently placed them on top of the cookies. A great decoration for upcoming Valentine’s Day.

Kids review: My son, Aiden 10 years said “This is Heaven put in a cookie.” His friend, Isaac 9 years said “This is the best cookie ever. You should put this in your favorites.” This made my jump up and down, as Isaac is the pickiest eater and he doesn’t like really anything with nuts. SCORE. Win. On top of that all the kids had the same reaction, as did my husband, friends and anyone I had try them.

Hello Everyone!

Riki here! I hope everyone has been getting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve! We’ve been having a blast here at the studio! Meeting lots of new people and catching up with some old friends!

As you may know we photograph everything from babies to huge family groups. But did you know that we have a specialized boudoir photographer in the studio?! And that photographer just so happens to be ME!

_MG_0012retuncroppedbw8x8

 

With all the birthdays, weddings and anniversaries happening this summer, it’s hard to think of great gift ideas, especially to give to the lovely man in your life, who has everything! We offer so many great gift options with our ‘Pillow-talk’  sessions! Albums, calendars, even air fresheners!
I absolutely love shooting these sessions, my clients and I always have a great time! Most times women are a little shy/nervous coming in to the session, but that gets wiped off the slate quite quickly! All of my clients leave feeling beautiful and extremely confident!
We get to meet for a consultation before the actual session, which makes it a little easier for both of us. The consultation comes free with your session. This is where we get to talk about the session, so we both have a game plan going into it.

We have an awesome deal happening this week, to celebrate the hot-hot Summer! Our Summer Sizzle deal, which means, our Flirt session is only $45!!! (regular $90)  – or you can upgrade to a larger package and you save 20%!
You have had some time to work off all that yummy Christmas baking, because we know it lasted a few months, right? 😉 And it’s prime time for tanning outside, so everyone is walking around with these beautiful natural glows! What better time to get some beautiful photos done!

Not that you need a reason to admire your own beauty, but what better way to do so?  This doesn’t have to be a gift for someone else, why not do it for yourself, prove to yourself, what everyone has been telling you all these years, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

I can’t wait to collaborate with you, to showcase your beauty!!

Cheers!

Riki Holmes

Summer sizzel 2015

DOG DAY EVENT

CALL 705-524-5713

DOG DAY IS Saturday June 27th (by appointment)

VIEWING will be Tuesday June 30th. (by appointment)

This studio day is dedicated to all our furry friends of the DOG world.  As a previous dog owner my self, I know how important it is to have a beautiful portrait of your best friend (especially after they are gone).    So, “Dog Days” was created.  Not only are we doing this for you, but we are also doing this for the local SPCA.  We want to give something back to them, so for each session we will donate $30 to the SPCA and you have to bring in a bag of Dry Dog Food, cat food or non clumping cat litter that we will also bring to the SPCA.

 

ImageNumber_0015ret

 

We are planning to create the best image of your dog showing his or her personality.  Soooooooooo, this will not be your typical “Studio dog portrait day”.   If  we get it in the first few shots awesome, sometimes we may have to take like a million shots, whatever it takes.   We will be focusing on your dog and not so much on the background.  As you can see by our samples the attention is drawn directly to the dog, and you know what that dog’s personality is just by looking at them.

 

ImageNumber_0062web

 

 

FIVE  Reasons Why You Should Trust Us With Your Dog’s Portrait

1. Your dogs portrait will be better than any snapshots you might already have.

2. Because we know you love your dog.

3. Your dog wishes to help out with the SPCA

4. You will not find better prices for the best Dog Portrait

5. We know your dog wants this as your dog already emailed us telling us so.

Don’t disappoint your dog!

 

DOG DAY IS Saturday June 27th  (by appointment)

VIEWING day is Tuesday June 30th (by appointment)

  Sessions are approximately  20 minutes long, like we said earlier sometimes we can get those magic captures in the first 5 minutes, plus, your dogs might stress out, breathe heavy, tongues hanging out (which isn’t a bad thing) so we found 20 minutes is more than enough time.

If your in to the new fade of organics and this book is definitely a Pick for you! “The Complete Organic Pregnancy” by Alexandra Zessu. I think the name says it all! WE photograph so many Sudbury moms and babies that want to keep their little ones heathy and safe in s world full of junk food and chemicals.

The Complete Organic Pregnancy

“Product Description
While being pregnant is thrilling, the responsibility of a growing baby can provoke anxiety about what is and isn’t safe. In The Complete Organic Pregnancy, Deirdre Dolan and Alexandra Zissu address how you can minimize your exposure to the invisible toxins that surround us—in everything from food, cleaning products, and cosmetics to furniture, rugs, air, and water. Step by step, they tell you where dangerous chemicals are lurking, why it’s so important to avoid them when pregnant, and what you can do before, during, and after your pregnancy to protect your child.

In this exhaustively researched book, the authors (calmly) talk parents-to-be through everything from the safest laundry detergent to which crib mattresses contain toxic flame retardants. You’ll find out how to choose the right face cream, plastic water bottles, household cleaners, types of fish, and much more—all with an eye toward keeping you and your baby safe and healthy.

The Complete Organic Pregnancy also features a collection of personal diaries from well-known writers and organophiles, including Barbara Kingsolver and Marion Nestle, as well as recipes from organic chefs. Required reading for anyone heading into this exciting stage of life, The Complete Organic Pregnancy is your chance to make a difference for your children, even before they’re born.”

 

I grabbed this from a blog post I found on the net and figured it was worth the share.

About the Author
Deirdre Dolan is a journalist whose writing has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, Rolling Stone, and the New York Times Magazine, among other publications. She has written columns for the New York Observer and the National Post, and is the author of Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Book.

Your little girl is only little once. Let her indulge in one of her favorite characters, a fairy princess.

Fairy portraits are truly one of a kind.

November 7th and 8th at Pixatron Announcing The Enchanted Forest Fairy Day Friday, 

November 7th & Saturday, November 8th 2014

With Pixatron Portrait Studios and Westmount Photography*

photo07

Your little girl is only little once. Let her indulge in one of her favorite characters, a fairy princess. Fairy portraits are truly one of a kind. Many clients tell us year after year, and years after they’ve had their little girls fairy portraits photographed, that they are still their favorites.

When friends and relatives come over to visit, and see the images on their walls, they can’t believe they were created locally. They have to do a double take, because the portraits are simply full of impact.

Our Fairy Portraits are not like regular sessions. We have all the props, wings and everything needed for some mystical and magical fairy portraits…..you just bring the magic!

Portraits unlike any others you have seen…

The right lighting, poses, look and feel takes a special touch and and expert eye. That’s where we deliver. When you come in to have your little girl photographed, the first thing you’ll be greeted by are some smiling faces, and a warm inviting atmosphere. Our studio is renown for making your visit relaxing and fun.

Each child will be brought into the studio area where mom can change her into the fairy outfit that fits best. (We have several custom made outfits hand crafted just for these sessions and sized to various ages.) Rob and Tina will come into the studio and Tina will place the fairy wings in place, and Rob will start with a basic pose to warm her up.

These wings are simply amazing and very, very easy to place into the outfit. We create up to 30 poses based on three looks and angles.

These are proven to be the best and most artistically flattering poses that most parents love (and grandparents too!)

Rob’s quirky, fun loving and humorous style makes these sessions easy and fun. Tina’s patience and professionalism helps each girl into their best pose. They take on average no more than ten minutes, sometimes 15 to capture all the best poses.

Once done, you change your little girl into her regular clothes. Tina then will make an appointment to see the results, which are ready as soon as the next business day. She’s also give you a special menu with all our packages, sizes and reprints. Your little girl will also get to pick a toy out of our toy box, and if it’s ok with mom she can have a packet of (healthy) ju jubes.

Once you return to see your images at the scheduled time, Tina will show you a slide show, set to music, showing the images from fairy day.

We have custom designed composites available as well. Ask about our ideas and selections on creating a special, one-of-a-kind art piece for your home.

Fairy portraits make excellent wall portraits for your home….

Yesterday (February 18th 2014) at 6pm we had to say goodnight for last time to our very presious four legged boy, Chewbacca.

_MG_0040-3web

 

 

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m bit of a geek, actually a huge geek. LOL. I grew up loving Star Wars. So when my wife and I got our first dog, there was no doubt in my mind that his name would be Chewbacca. That day was Jan 29th 2002. We pick Chewy (Chewbacca) up from breeders out on Gravel Dr. in Hanmer and heading home. He was so tiny and literally fit in the palm of my hand. He was a pure bread English Springer Spaniel, ( he was born by accident and out in the cold ) by the time we got the breeders house there were only two pups left for us to chose from. He came right to us, the pudgiest of them all. We fell in love at first sight. Two weeks later we picked him up and brought him home.

About a week after we had him home, I brought him to my best friends house to partake in Super bowl Sunday. It was then, that I knew Chewy was gonna be a tough and strong dog. That 4 week old pup with no teeth stopped eating his soft puppy mush and started eating hard puppy kibble. We trained for hunting, retrieving, and he even holds some titles in fly ball. I had some awesome hunts with chewy, even if we didn’t get any bird on every outing. Chewy touched the lives and hearts of many.  My mother who was scared of dogs, especially big dogs.Chewy helped her get over that fear. And Chewy was amazing with babies and kids of all ages, most recently with Jackson, our now 1 year old son.  As he was learning to walk and stand on his own, often he would use Chewy and grab and pull at his fur to help him get to where we wanted to be and Chewy being that kind and loving dog,  just let him do it,  following up with a big lick on Jackson’s face once he accomplished his goal of standing.

Chewy loved to run, and jump, but he favourite was running and jumping into either water or snow. When I picture Chewy running all I can think of are those beautiful ears flapping up and down as he ran.  When you talked to chewy, he would look at you in such a way that you could tell  he was totally listening to you.

He would fetch pillows all the time, bark when anyone came to door and he loved to chase light. It was like his goal in life, to get that light.  In 13 years he never once lifted is leg to pee. I always said that was the English  in him,  He always looked prim and proper, squatting to pee or crossing his legs as he laid on the couch. He truly was a one of kind dog.

Chewy will now be reunited with his bother Shaggy and many other doggy friends. Chewy will be missed by all that loved him. Rest in peace my fury friend and run like the wind, and never forget what mommy and daddy said to you just before you went goodnight for the last time, we will always love you and you will never be forgotten.  Go get those birds, Chewy.

Here are a few photos of our beloved Chewbacca the way we remember him in all his glory.

There are moments in life that you can’t get back, things that can’t be redone, fixed, or even corrected. You can never get back those first few weeks with a newborn, that first day of school,  and you can never get back your wedding day. We’ve heard so many terrible stories, stories of people who had terrible wedding photos and even stories of people never getting their photos at all. The best we can do at that point is a bridal session. I have photograph many of these over the years, most as Trash the Dress sessions – for people who had terrible wedding photography, for people who simply wanted more photos, and for people who wanted photos at a different location that just weren’t feasible to take on their wedding day.

 

It breaks my heart when people get bad wedding photos from a “professional” photographer. So, here’s what I’m offering. One couple with have the chance to win a free Bridal session completely on us.

Every single person that enters will qualify for a discounted Bridal Session or Trash the Dress session from Pixatron Photo Studio, because we want you to have incredible photos to remember your love story with.

 

 

 

***PLEASE NOTE***

 

We will NOT post or publish your wedding photos, only your story and we will not publish the name of your photographer. Our goal is to get you some incredible photos, not to “out” or humiliate anyone. The photos are for our eyes only just to verify that you did, in fact, have bad wedding photos.

The Wandziak family and the Dickieson family have to be some the sweetest people I have ever met. Sarah was looking so beautiful on her wedding day, and Jamie was looking a tad bit nervous just before the church ceremony. We start out with some rain, but that soon stopped and I was able to grab some beautiful images from Sarah and James’ wedding day.  Sarah sorry for the loss of your Grandmother, your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Milo will be this years poster child for the annual SPCA calendar. I can’t show the image of Milo with all  his furry and non furry friends till after the calendar comes out. But I get a chance again today to photography this little cutie and his furry family. I really can’t wait to see little Milo again. The image below is my niece Lindsay holding Milo.

Sunday night was a hot and humid, but it set the stage for awesome engagement session with Tara and Nick. We met at the Lorne St Tim Horton’s and headed out to Tara’s family Farm in Worthington. The evening was full of excitement, the lovely couple were stung by wasps and  had a bear shake and break branches off of  a 20 foot pine tree less then 20 feet beside them. Let just say it was an adventure for all. But one that I would do all over again to capture the love that these two share for each other. The golden hour led to beautiful sun kisses images and misty fog filled marshes. Here’s a sneak peek from their session.

I love photographing childern, and watching the little ones mimic Mom or Dad sometimes just blows my mind. It’s amazing what they learn and do. I resently did a photo shoot in Alban for some great clients of ours, (Dad happens to hunt deer not from where we hunt) and Hunter is just way to cute. He loves his gator and knows how to ride it.

I had an amazing time out Charm Plus’ Northern Model Search back on February 12th held in Sudbury. I super excited to picked as one of Sudbury’s best photographers to judge this event, along with Rob Provencher, James Hodgins, Erik Lovin, and Alfred Boyd. I must tell ya….it was a total honour to be among friends, peers and mentors. I choose 5 models from the 100+ that participated to come into the studio for a complimentary photo shoot.  We have since had Tecla come in for her complimentary photo shoot. She was so nervous sounding on the phone when she booked her session. She was unsure of what she wanted to do, what kind of look she wanted, she just told me that she had no clue what she wanted to do. After a brief talk about my ideas and thoughts, Tecla was pumped, super excited and ready for this photo shoot.  Here are a few images from her session.

 

Beautiful and unique, a total combination of outer and inner beauty.

When our make up artist Kristen came to me asking to use the studio for an up and coming wedding make up trial, I gladly said yes. I love having new people come into the studio to see what we can do. As Kristen’s client Anne was leaving, I asked her if we could use her for a quick test shot. I needed to test my light for the Sudbury Woman’s show Fabulous over 40 contest winners. I took the first shot of Anne, made some minor adjustments to my lighting and the second shot was what we ended up with. Anne was so amazed at how easy it was to capture this image Thanks Anne for  allowing me to capture this beautiful image. Can’t wait to see you back in the studio. 🙂

Well we now have the Trash the Dress Contest winner from the 2011 fall bridal show. This years fall bridal show was a hit. We met with lots of brides, bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride. I must say Bill puts on an amazing show, I am so happy to be a part of it every year. We had over 200 brides come through the doors and over 160 ballots filled out for our free TTD session. We had a lot of people ask us what these session’s are all about?Do you really trash your expensive wedding dress? Well, the answer is yes an no.  Yes it can be trashed if that’s what you really want. But in reality it just gets a bit dirtier then it did on your wedding day. The locations are way cooler, and we always try to get the bride in the water for some amazing kick butt images. More or less, it’s a chance to wear that beautiful expensive wedding dress again. You’ll never wear it again, and chances are, you daughter isn’t going to wear it on her wedding day either.  All of our TTD clients have had their dress dry cleaned for no more then it would cost someone who didn’t do one of these sessions.  And trust me, our brides love these session. We take your beauty to the next level.  High fashion, glamour, seductive, and magazine quality images, are the looks I’m going for in these session. It’s never too late to do a trash the dress session, weather your a newly wed or if you’ve been married for 10 years.  These sessions make you feel glamours and sexy and they’re just plain old FUN!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR TRASH THE DRESS CONTEST WINNER!

Well today at approximately 4pm (Sept. 20th 2011), Cindy and I had to say goodnight for ever to our sweet Shaggy.

We got Shaggy 5 and a half  years ago.  When I found him, he was cold, starving and almost dead on  that -30 winter night.  He had been miss treated, malnourished and could barely walk. I took him home, to warm him up, feed him and give him some much need love.  Cindy immediately fell in love with him.  Shaggy had a lot of issues at the beginning, but he was such a gentle dog, who allowed Cindy and  I, two strangers, to love and care for him. We tried adopting him out through PetSave once he was health enough, however it just didn’t work out and we decided that we would keep him since we had become greatly attached to him. We nick named him “the PIRATE”, as he had a very deep voice and vocalized often.  And yes dogs can talk. If you don’t believe me just come over to our place and ask Chewy to get you a pillow. He’ll get you one and then and tell you he got it for you.

It took awhile for  our 5 year old springer (Chewbacca) to warm up to Shaggy, but he did.  Jealousy has always and issue between both boys, by our love for them was shared equally.  It’s amazing what dogs learn from each other, Shaggy tought Chewy to bark at loud truck and quads, and Chewy tough Shaggy how to pee with out lifting his leg…Chewy would steel packaged material off the counter rip it up and Shaggy would get rid the eveidance 🙂

It’s weird how pets become a  special part of your life, especially when you can’t have children. They become  your children.  And we love them like we would our own childern.  We will miss Shaggy’s classic priate growls, his famous after dinner rolls on his bed and his crazy fur faces.  I’ve never seen a dog that loved his bed as much as he did.  As tough as this decision has been for Cindy and I, we know that it is the best for him.  He was not suffering at the moment, but his breathing had become more and more shallow every day, and he had no strength in his back legs.  He had to be carried up and sometimes down the stairs and he was very,very tired.  He came into our life with a smile on his cute shaggy face, and that’s the way we want to remember him leaving our lives, smiling,  like the good, gentle, happy, shaggy dog that he is.

Chewy will miss his partner in crime, and his brother.

Shaggy it has been a true honor to have been your Daddy. As we told you before you went goodnight, your mommy and daddy love you and we will see you again.

LOVE YOU BUDDY.

Last photo of Shaggy about two weeks ago.

Here are a few images of our Shaggers from years gone by:

This was the morning after that cold night that we got Shaggy, gave him a warm almost new bed and some yummy numbilinos’s (dog food) 🙂 and one with Lindsay. He was such a gentle giant.

About a month after we had him….putting on weight and very happy.


Shaggy loved playing with balls, and having his fur cut short so he could see.

This was his curious face with Yoda ears.

His first Christmas with us. Those who remember, this was our Christmas card that year.

At our new house….no rope and lots of room to run.

One from 2007. Just before we moved.

Christmas card photo at the new house.

A gift for Cindy….of our boys…

Christmas 2008 the first year I came up with this Santa shot. This too was our Christmas card

Last year with Lindsay….this was our card.

These are just a few images that we will never forget.  Shaggy, you run, bark and swim as much as you want now. We love you.

Shaggy Blinn  (March 2, 2006 – Sept 20, 2011) Always loved.

Today is very important day for Cheryl and Peter, today they devote their love for one another, exchange beautiful vows, and forever seal their love through the sacrament of marriage. Congratulation you two. Can’t wait to start capturing these very special memories.

Our Hot Shots contest will be extended till the end of the month. That’s right if you didn’t get a chance to enter and get your session in before Sept 2nd, now’s your chance. We are extending it till the end of Sept. Remember the the Grand Prize is an iPad2. How cool is that.  Second prize is a  half day spa from la Renaissance Spa and our third prize is $200 in tanning from Heat Wave tanning.  Just in time for back to school. Keep in mind that this is a Most Photogenic contest and you don’t have to be a model to enter.  The studio has been crazy busy with our new on location weddings by Michael Blinn, along with all of our reg sessions. Here are some from our most recent Hot Shots Contestants, Devin and Tiffany. (These two have never modeled a day in their lives, honest)

BTW, for those of you that know me well, you know that I tend to fall all the time. 🙂 Well this session went with our incident. We had to cross a creek to get to the last location and as we were come back across, don’t ya know, I fell in the drink. LOL. Yeap…all my equipment was saved and the only think hurt was my pride that I had to have these two beautiful ladies help me out of the water. Oh well, I guess it could have been worse,eh?

For those clients that love it when we bring the  ducks into the studio, but always wonder what happens to them when we’re done with them. Well…. we give them to a good home. It’s actually a local farm that takes them in every year. And through out the year the owner will send me progress photos of the chicks and ducks. Here are our once baby ducks from the spring session this year.

I shot Julie’s sisters wedding last year, where I first met Julie as she was the maid of honour. Congrats once again Julie and Chad, I look forward to capturing all the memories of your special day.

Yesterday I hooked up with two local photographers and good friends James Hodgins and Rob Provencher.  To head out to Manitoulin Island for crap shoot session Taylor and Christina. Taylor is James’ high school senior from last year and is an amazing print model. Rob brought his senior model Christina .  Manitoulin Island offered a different change of scenery for us.  Along with fellow photographers  Marc from Timmins,, Angie from the big town of Espanola , we toured around Manitoulin looking for cool (literally with temps in high 30’s)  spots that we could grab some dynamic kick butt  images.  Since James  and I booth shoot with Canon and Rob and the rest were shooting with Nikons using the Nikon lighting system we paired off in groups of two to start shooting at each location. Here are is one quick one of both Taylor and Christina from a location in the Manitou River  close to Micheals Bay.
