EDMONTON GRAD PORTRAITS | LIZZY'S GRADUATION

2018-07-30_0010.jpg

High school graduation is one of my very favourite milestones to document. The excitement, the glamour, the proud parents. It's all magic! So you can imagine how giddy I was when Jennifer asked me to photograph her daughter Lizzy's graduation. I'd previously photographed her elder daughter Avery's graduation party last summer, so I was really happy to spend more time with one of my favourite families and mark this occasion for them with portraits.

Lizzy came to my studio to be glammed up by the lovely Melenie Montgomery, as her and her mom and sister snacked on treats from Duchess Bakeshop and sipped champagne. Her dad and sweet boyfriend joined in and we started with some portraits in my studio. Then we travelled to the Legislature grounds, where hundreds of other grads were gathered to celebrate with their friends and, well, take pictures.

The positive energy was contagious. I was honoured to be there. Congratulations, Lizzy! I'm so excited for you.

PARTNER | USB MEMORY DIRECT

Lately I've been thinking a lot about all things physical and tangible. Things that we can touch and hold. Although I'm a digital photographer, my journey began with film and my obsession developed in the darkroom at my high school as I watched my work bloom to life in the chemical baths. Working and delivering digitally has many advantages, and I take pride in being able to send clients a beautiful online gallery of their images, but sending along tangible items is increasingly important to me.

When USB Memory Direct reached out to me, I was keen to partner with them as I am putting together ideas for how I provide my clients with more physical tokens to remember their wedding or portrait experience with me, and to hold onto the brightest and most precious moments from their special occasion.

I'm happy to share that thanks to the folks at USB Memory Direct, I will now have USB keys available upon request in addition to online galleries. I also offer a full line of prints and albums, and am working on finding some extraordinary new items as well.

Here's a peek at the beautiful wooden USB keys you can now request!

I'm playing around with different stationary options and packaging for different types of clients. Below you can see some ideas I'm working on for model portfolio shoot clients as well as golden anniversary portrait clients.

If you're a fellow photographer and looking to find a USB key to complement your digital delivery, USB Memory Direct has lots of options to suit different styles, so it's easy to upload your logo and have a personalized key made that ties in with your brand. They offer fast shipping and I was super happy with the quality of the keys I received.
