Men Become Boys Again.

What do you get when you combine a 2 time World Champion team roper, a great host family, delicious BBQ, Monsoon rains, and a handful of aspiring team ropers? You get a bunch of grown men acting like kids on Christmas morning. Each and every one of their faces light up when then man from Stephenville Texas, Walt Woodard speaks to them. Walt has a great sense of humour that really helps to lower the guard of these cowboys so he can “Teach young dogs some old tricks.”

I got the pleasure of spending 2 days with these hard-working cowboys, and cowgirls as they made their journey back to school. Imagine if all schooling was done on a horse in an arena, we’d have a province full of scholars. They gave their undivided attention and truly listened to what he was telling them, wish I could get my kids to learn like that!
Slade and Cami Bowers were amazing hosts; putting out big spreads at meal time, shelter from the torrential rains, and being so well-organized. There wasn’t any wasted time and everything seemed to run smooth, thanks again guys.

There were ropers of all ages, skill level and gender out participating in this two-day school. It was great to see them all laughing and learning together.

If you are looking to buy prints or digital images from the school or the Jackpot please follow the link on the side. If they aren’t up yet please be patient  . Rodeo weekends tend to turn into rodeo weeks. I’ve been away for a while but hope to get these up soon for you to browse through.

Thanks,

Boudoir Photography

The craze that is sweeping North America, Boudoir Photography is intimate pictures of a woman, meant to be used as a gift for their loved one or to preserve a memory of their body forever.

Soft, natural lighting, flattering angles, fancy undies and some great heals are the recipe for breath-taking photos of a woman at her most venerable state. Every session seems to start the same way; the subject nervously standing before my camera, tugging on the straps of her expensive lingerie awkwardly placing her hands across her body.  After a few clicks of the shutter I show them the photos taken so far and watch as they fall in love with themselves. It’s in the eyes; the passion, the softness, the look usually only seen by the one they love. 

 The moment they see themselves on the tiny 2.5″ x 3″ LCD on the back of my camera it is an entirely different session.  The inner diva is released. There are women sprawling across the bed, looking back over their shoulder. They are suggesting poses, changing outfits and really enjoying themselves.  All insecurities melt away and they see themselves in a new light, and why shouldnt they? Who cares if you have stretch marks and cellulite? It is your body and it’s time to be proud of it. 

So when you are ready to embrace your beauty, book a session for some boudoir photos.  You will be nervous at first, but you will leave feeling like a million bucks, and rightly so.  Everyone has that “special feature”, the one thing that sets them apart from everyone else.  Exploit it, embrace it and show it off!
