Theme Maternity Shoot

Hello, Saskatoon! Your resident photographer apologizes for the lack of updates to the blog. Growing people is tiring work! As I'm sure my favorite maternity and newborn client of 2013 here can agree.

I love newborns! I can hardly wait to be doing a shoot like this for my own little one. Just a few more months.

I'm having a baby!

ultrasound

Hello Saskatoon! So, I'm sure some of you noticed that I disappeared for some months following Saskatoon Blitz. I assure you all I have a very good reason -- I have been busy these past months working on my greatest work of art -- A little bundle of joy expected to arrive February 4th, 2014.

Photographers: If you are looking for a great way to announce your baby, I highly recommend having family hold a sign for a "family tree" project and then holding up the ultrasound. You can give the kid the images of them holding the sign later on, and the resulting images of them cheering are always very touching to have.

Saskatoon Blitz - Day one images are live.

Anyone with fun stories from Blitz please share them in the comments!

Hello Saskatoon! The highlights from the Blitz Photography Team's coverage of Day One of the event is now online.

You can find a link to that at the bottom of this post. Before I share that however, there are some words I would like to share.

Wil Wheaton was asked at a convention to tell a fans newborn daughter why being a nerd is awesome.

In his fantastic response, which is too long to quote here, he said that the defining characteristic of all nerds is that we love things.

Geek, nerd, whatever label you prefer, I think we can agree that description applies to us all.

We are so much more than our fandoms and our hobbies, we are part of a community of communities that spans nations and cultures and languages.

When the internet became a thing, our culture banded together to conquer that new land and build places we could connect with others who share our passions.

We have shouted out into the ether that liking stuff is awesome and anyone who tells you otherwise is boring and trying too hard to be cool.

In the words of Simon Pegg, "Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection."

I feel that says a lot about what makes conventions so special. There is a truly contagious feeling in these places where friends and complete strangers have banded together without the warm, snuggly anonymity of the internet to just be truly EXCITED about things.

I want to say a huge thank you to ALL the unsung heroes out there building places for people who love things.

Saskatoon Blitz is a place for people to embrace their own enthusiasm for things and to share their passions without fear of judgment, it is a community founded on the core values of geek culture, and I am SO PROUD to be part of it.

Thank you to the volunteer staff, the coordinators, the sponsors, designers, photographers, and guests, but most of all thank you to Laura Petrishen-Ha, who brought us all together and who devotes such an utterly ridiculous chunk of her year to making a place for her people to be awesome. For all who attended, and for any who missed out on being a part of Blitz this year, please click here for the highlights of Day One.

Saskatoon Blitz + Geek Wedding Spectacular.

Hello Saskatoon! I will be postponing my usual blog post this week due to preparations for Saskatoon Blitz tomorrow. Instead, I am sharing a wedding I have been saving for this exact occasion.

Below are thumbnails of the highlights from a fantastic geek wedding I shot last year. The bride is a stage manager and the daughter of a magician, and the groom is an actor and gamer, seen wearing an utterly fantastic D20 boutonniere.

Needless to say, they were hands down no-contest my favourite clients last year.

Photographers Log - Week 20

Hello Saskatoon! At last, winter is truly gone and behold! The garden is planted. This was taken a day or two after we planted our strawberries. It is so wonderful to have growing things in the yard this year.

With only a few weeks left until Saskatoon Blitz I may be moving the date for these regular updates around a little until things settle down.

More interesting photography to share this week. I'm not sure what kind of retro bug got into my head when I did my self portrait this week but it is certainly unique from all the others thus far.
