Weekly Pics, 25 September 2010

One day early for the weekly pics this week. We leave this morning to go home for a week. Can't wait to see the New Brunswick fall colours. The yellow is nice but it's kinda nice to have some orange and red mixed in there too. So expect some really colourful photos next week!

I posted some more photos of my shoot this week on facebook if anyone wants to see more. Other than that, I took a few photos while walking the dog this week, the first two. The last one was quite interesting. I started off at the edge of the pond, then I stepped in a little to get closer, wasn't close enough for the composition I wanted, so I ended up knee deep in mud to take that photo. I need water boots I think.

First family portrait session!

Had my first family portrait session today. I was a little nervous but it went very well. I'd like to say a big thanks to Jen, Bruce and Ben for entrusting me with making their family portraits. With someone as happy and playful as Ben, it couldn't have been easier, no shortages of smiles today, that's for sure. Here's a sneak peak for your enjoyment!

New Logo

Just finished designing my logo. Looks pretty basic but I did spend lots of time looking for a font I liked, played around with how I was going to position the words, different colours and different sizes for Hachey and Photography. I had the help from a few friends and some designers on iStock and everyone agreed that keeping it simple was best. The Hachey will either be in black or white, depending on what it's being used for. Let me know what you think!

And here's a photo I made last year with the new watermark.

Weekly Pics, 19 September 2010

Another busy week over with. I'm officially a small business owner now. Lots of running around getting everything accomplished but I'm all set now.

We also had a guest staying at the house over the weekend. Bogey, one of Molly's many friends. On saturday it was really nice out so I took them out to "Tin Town" on base(it's an empty military housing lot where everyone brings their dogs). Was the busiest I've ever seen it, there must have been at least 10 to 15 dogs there. They had a blast and a good nap when we got home. Here's a few Bogey Portraits!




The next two photos I took this morning at the Cold Lake provincial park boat launch. Wasn't the most spectacular sunrise but I was up so I made the most of it. Hope you like them.

Weekly Pics, 12 September 2010

This was a pretty busy week. Didn't get out to take many photos, let alone landscapes. I did however go out today to take some portraits of my lovely wife and our dog. Enjoy!

Weekly Pics, 05 September 2010

This weeks photos were all from an outing at the Cold Lake Provincial Park. I ended up staying way longer than I had expected and tried some light painting for the first time. Pretty neat what you can do with a 2 min exposure and a flash light. Only the last image was painted with light.

Jasper Trip, 02 Aug 2010

Just got back from our Jasper trip last night. Was a really good time even tho it rained everyday. We got up for a couple sunrises but then just gave up and slept in for the rest of the days. The clouds seemed to enjoy covering up the mountains in the mornings. Our days where generally good tho, the sun came out enough for us to do a hike along the Athabasca river. We spent most of our time driving around looking for wildlife that doesn't exist at the end of August, not sure where they all went. Although we did come home one day early because of the weather, overall it was an excellent trip, was good to get out to the mountains and spend some quality time as a family.








And my favourite photo of the week....
