Calgary Family Portrait: Julie, Bryan & Bruce

No matter how good of a photographer you already are, it can still get hard to shake off that tense feeling you get before finally meeting your clients. Especially when they’re already made-up and ready for the photo session. Case in point is our client Julie, whom we met sometime in April.

LCR_2016_04_03_26472

Julie is an accomplished woman in the corporate world, and she’s now moving towards opening her own day care business in September. She’s a mom to Bruce, a charming young fella, and an affectionate wife to Bryan. At first glance, you’d take her for the intimidating type—until she starts to converse, and gets you laughing and talking some more and overall makes you feel comfortable in her company. True enough, first impressions don’t make a good basis for a person’s character.

LCR_2016_04_03_26367

LCR_2016_04_03_26338

Before starting the photo session with Julie and her family, our team scouted the best spots to take the photographs. (Yep, the LCR Photography team usually arrives on location 30-45 minutes earlier for the necessary prepping.) We did some test shots among ourselves; we tested the lights, the corners and windows, tested some poses apt for the location, and tested some camera settings that’s bound to flatter the subject. But even with all this preparedness—gear, test shots, more preps—we realize the tenseness doesn’t go away until we finally do the work.

First, we did a corporate headshot for Julie. Leslie, LCR’s main photographer, gets this done in a breeze. Snap, snap, snap, and it’s done!

Then, the family portrait. It is my personal favourite, especially when there are kids involved. I love working with kids, and as I always say, “In photography, you can never go wrong with kids.” They are naturally adorable, making their every expression and gesture worth the capture!

At the end of the day, all the tenseness and over-preparedness are all worth it, because we then realize that every photograph fuels our passion in seizing the important moments of people’s lives.

Engagement Session Calgary: Amor & Enrique

“Love is patient and kind…Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
—1 Corinthians 13:4-7

_MG_1359My first time to meet up with a wedding client of LCR Photography was with love herself—Amor! And her soon-to-be husband, Enrique.

While we were waiting for my buddies Chiqui and Leslie, my chatty and curious side got the better of me. I asked Amor and Enrique how their love story began.

_CR26054They were introduced to each other by their common friends, after a party. Further along their love story, I couldn’t help but giggle (at the “sweet moments” tidbits), then get teary-eyed in one moment, then give an all-out laugh in another._CR26136-Edit

_CR26108But more than their story, it was hard to miss how the lovebirds said it all with the expressions in their eyes and the tenderness of their words. There was excitement and joy and sweetness throughout. Furtive glances and looking into each other’s eyes and caresses here and there. Indeed, their affection and admiration for each other resonated through me.

_CR12805-Edit

What’s even more impressive is that they defied time and distance. Both are in their late thirties; Amor is from the Philippines while Enrique is from Mexico. And they found love in Canada!

_CR26022_MG_1196

Truly, we cannot underestimate the power of love. It takes people by surprise. Indeed, there’s a time for everything. A time to wait and a time to reap. And now, they reap the fruits of the patience they’ve sown._CR12543Being able to photograph their engagement session was definitely a privilege and a pleasure. Even with the windy, cold, rainy weather that day, we still got the shots we hoped to capture.

Now, LCR Photography is proudly part of their ever-after story.

Sarah & Lucca – Calgary Mini Session

One of the highlights of our IN-STUDIO Mini Photo Session last April 16 was the mom-and-son tandem of Sarah and Lucca!

LCR_2016_04_16_27348-EditLCR_2016_04_16_27339-EditSarah is a single mom who has this admirable strength of a woman and who’s quite effortless in being both a mom and a dad to her son.
The sweet and loving kid, on the other hand, is Lucca! He’s quite generous with his hugs and freely gave us pecks on the cheek. However, he can also be a handful at times, what with the full-blast energy of a seven-year-old. Yep, I had my Red Bull ready for this kid.LCR_2016_04_16_27442-2

LCR_2016_04_16_27379-Edit-2

Sarah and Lucca gave us a memorable shoot. They were great subjects for an In-Studio Photo Session. Such session already has its beauty. There’s the predictable warmth of the studio, the consistency of light situation, and the sense of privacy. Although In-Studio can sometimes be perceived as outdated or too old school, I love it all the same—as much as I love outdoor shoots!

LCR_2016_04_16_27435

LCR_2016_04_16_27417

In-Studio gives that classic and classy feel to the photograph. It gives that simple yet elegant touch. It gives the kind of photo that you would love to hang huge on your wall. With a plain background, the viewer’s eyes will not wander anywhere else, but close in on you!

Acierda Family – Lifestyle Photography Calgary

It was one fine windy day on April 2nd when we drove to an acreage outside Calgary for a photo shoot with our client Luvy. I thought, “Living in an acreage? How cool is that!” Wide-open spaces, acres and acres of greenery, a fair distance from the hustles and bustles of the city. It’s just totally relaxing.

When we arrived in the acreage, Luvy and her family greeted us with a warm welcome and a healthy dose of excitement. They were all dressed up and ready for their big shoot. Luvy’s husband actually said that he felt like they were getting married again. To which everyone laughed.

Excitement and laughter aside, we were quite impressed with how much the family wanted their photographs to be very good—as much as we wanted each shot to be picture-perfect.

Every family photo session always has something new to offer. Although our workflow stays the same—scout the area, take test shots, ready the gear—each product comes out different from the other. Every family carries with them their own uniqueness—their bond, their joy, their laughter, and how they communicate with one another. It’s always the little things that come out making the difference.

Here’s a sneak peek of the brand of fun Luvy’s family brings! Check out how their photos turned out. I’m not sure if you can even tell the wind got crazy that day.

Eden – Maternity Photography Calgary

On March 27, we had a maternity shoot with our client Eden. She’s a soft-spoken and calm woman, while her husband complements all that with his outgoing nature. They’re quite the couple—different personalities yet perfectly matched!

I couldn’t help but fall in love with every snap. Not because I’m bound to love our work, but because their heartwarming expressions were just contagious. The excitement and joy in their faces said it all—they cannot wait to see their baby boy soon. First babies never fail to keep much excitement going around.

It is very fascinating to be part of the important moments of other people’s lives. More so that we have the privilege of capturing those moments. And that’s why we give our best for every photo session. We treat each client as a family. And our photographs reflect how much we love our job.

I always remember this quote by Baden Powell, which I learned back in college. It goes, “The real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people.” We can never be happier that our clients chose us to be their photographers. And when we see them happy with the outcome as well, then that just makes us the happiest (and Powell the proudest😝).

LCR Photography is Moving Onwards and Going BIG!

I am so excited to announce that LCR Photography is moving to a bigger studio in the commercial area NE of Calgary. On our previous blog, we welcomed the newest addition to our team, portrait photographer, Clio Ty. Along side this change, we made the decision to finally get our own studio/office space. We can finally say goodbye to conducting client meetings at a coffee shop or at our home. I know that this big step will open lots of opportunities for us as entrepreneurs. I truly believe that in order to provide our clients with an excellent experience, we have to show the highest level of professionalism, which our new space allows us to achieve.Studio 4For the past couple of weeks that we’ve been on this adventure, our business has undergone some substantial developments which we hope continues in the foreseeable future. True to the saying that goes, “Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” – Jim Rohn

On behalf of our TEAM we would like to thank all of you, our valued clients, families and friends for your support. As a welcome gift – we will be offering the BIGGEST deal we have for this month of April. So please stay tuned!

 You can find our studio location here!

A New Addition to Our Team

About Us ClioLast month, we have made the sensible decision to partner with one of Calgary’s best family and portrait photographer, Clio Ty. Clio believes in the importance of reliving the bright moments in our lives — to be able to look back on those fond memories and blithely reminisce. By using her lens and creativity, her photographs allows people to do just that. She captures such moments, ones that are sometimes fleeting, and turns it into something permanent — a picture that tells a story, that exudes emotion, and truly showcases her clients’ personalities. Clio’s talent, skills, and passion for photography makes her a fantastic addition to our team. And with her, our dream of making LCR Photography bigger and better is just that much closer.

Aside from taking photos, Clio also enjoys the beach and hiking up in the mountains. She believes that in order to find balance in life, one must go and look for ways where they can find peace to discover new ideas, or to simply recuperate from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Clio loves to be active (running being one of her other passions) and has taken part in many marathons in the city.

I, together with my husband, Leslie Ian, trust in Clio’s creativity and capability. We know that she will be nothing short of amazing. Let us all give her the warmest Welcome!

Leslie Ian & Chiqui Ramos, is a founder/owner of LCR Photography. A wedding and portrait photographers based out of Calgary, AB.
