The Nordale Parents Advisory Group approached us wondering “would photos be a good fundraiser”?

Of course we said YES!

So THIS SATURDAY, September 26th, Coralee & Beck will be shooting mini-sessions to help raise funds for a new nature playground for the Nordale School and the community of Norwood Flats!

What is a mini-session? It’s a short and sweet version of the regular un-portrait session that you can book with Red Photo Co. These will be 15 minutes and will be outdoors (weather permitting) at the Nordale School! Bring your dog or cat, or grandma and grandpa, bring your new bike or that stuffy that you can’t live without. And don’t forget to bring BIG SMILES! This a great way to support a good cause AND get a beautiful photo of your family! If holiday cards are what you’re after, we design those too!

We are looking forward to meeting lots of families from the community and seeing all the smiles!

Graduating from high school is a big deal! This spirited bunch of girls certainly started their celebrations in style! 20 graduates, friends, and family gathered together at The Southwood Golf and Country Club to spend a little time together as a smaller group before heading to their evening event. It was a gorgeous backdrop for photos of the girls in their graduation finery. The storms held off, and we had a beautiful sunshine filled afternoon together! All the best with your next endeavours, and we wish you lots of adventure in your lives ahead!

It feels like I (Coralee) have known Richard & Liana forever so it only seems fitting that I’ve seen some of their biggest life’s moments; getting engaged, getting married and now, having not only one but TWO gorgeous baby girls to spoil! Rebecca and I were super excited to hear of the birth of their little darlings and were incredibly happy to share in these precious moments, that seem to pass so quickly. Little E & K, we hope that we are lucky enough to share in a lot more moments with you as you grow up to be delightful little people! Two may be twice as much work, but twice as much fun as well!

Weddings are traditionally a celebration of love…and what better way to celebrate an upcoming wedding than with those that you love the most! This engagement session was filled with dandelion picking, giggling, eating ice cream and a good old game of scrabble. Throw in some curiosity about geese, a swing on a ufo-shaped disc and some kissing amongst the lilac bushes and it was one fun filled afternoon indeed…

This is one heck of a great family. If I needed to pick one word to encapsulate the Falks it would be PERSONALITY! Every single time they get in front of the camera, it’s magic! The smiles, the energy, the gusto with which they all take on life… it’s absolutely infectious!

Charlie the service dog is the sweetest, most attentive, well behaved dog we’ve met. I think he was the least phased by having his photo taken, he was certainly the least camera aware!

It is certain, when you are in a room with this family you are in the presence of a bunch of people who love each other and also really like each other!

We had the best time, and we’ll gladly photograph you all again anytime you’d like!

This little guy is no doubt not so little anymore!

Back in October 2014 we were lucky enough to get the call to photograph a gorgeous baby boy for a great couple! Curtis & Krista had given me (Rebecca) the honour of capturing their wedding day a few years ago, and now as their family expanded we were invited into their home for another big deal, to meet the newest member, Parker! It’s pretty obvious that everyone is smitten with the super cute new addition!

Molly the excitable pup (well, she still acts like a pup, so I’ll call her a pup), was there too, giving kisses and getting in the way of course!

It is always amazing to us to be given the task of documenting a family as it grows. Whether this be a couple journeying life as a twosome, the addition of dogs, cats, birds and of course children, the happy moments or the sad moments, we love helping you document your family history. These are your memories, your moments. Thank you for trusting us with them.

One of my (Coralee’s) first loves is live music. From flying to California for a weekend to see a ton of bands at Coachella to driving 8 hours what seems like once a month in the summertime to Minneapolis, I just CANNOT get enough! So to have been asked to photograph one of my fave local bands, The Duhks , for the second time at their sold out hometown show at The WECC for their new album, Beyond the Blue, was an honour yet again! Thanks lovies, I always have the best time catch up pre-show, being able to photograph from whatever vantage point that I desire (including on stage…can’t get better than that!) and witnessing the amazing energy that is your show!

(…and the majority of the group shots were taken in a span of about 3 minutes during the intermission. For those that think that photography is all about taking photos, you’re sorely mistaken. It’s mostly about using what you have (or are granted), being prepared AND utilizing the vibe of your subjects. In between sets? That’s when musicians are full of adrenaline and more than happy to laugh at you!)
