Mother

Meet our Mothers day winner for 2017 Sophie Seeger!  She is one lucky lady with a basket full of goodies! Pictured here at Supernova Salon with Dana (the owner) on your left and Tamara of Studio Two Photography (that’s me) on your right.

As you may or may not know, each year we team up to do something nice for a deserving mom. Sophie was nominated by her husband for our even bigger and better contest this year!  North Shore Mom of the Year!

We came up with over $2000.00 in prizes this year, so not only is she being treated to a hairstyle and makeup application at Supernova Salon, but her young daughter and her will be loaned dresses from Isabelle’s Bridal Evening Collection,

to wear during their family portrait session by me at Studio Two Photography!  I will then choose one beautiful image to print and frame for them!

Prizes also include items and gift cards from: Skoah, Frankies Candybar, Unity Clothing, Brown’s Restaurant on Lonsdale, Mo’s General Store, and Griffin’s Boxing Club. Thank you to all these sponsors!

She’s coming in May 28 so I will post some shots after that!  We can’t wait to spoil this deserving mom!

We love our dogs here in North Vancouver and around the world! Although my website is primarily women and business portraits, I thought I would share some of the many doggie portraits I’ve taken over the years.

As a subject, you would think they would be very difficult, but the opposite is true. A two year old is probably harder to deal with in the studio. Dogs if they are trained to do so, will sit and stay on command…..unlike little “Jimmy”.

Our precious fur babies only last on average 15 years or so…..it goes much too quick…..so document their lives while you can, show the expressions and funny little habits, make yourself a video

and for a classic headshot you will display on your wall (it will make you smile with every passing) and cherish forever, come and see me.

Isabelle’s Bridal grad party

As some of you may know, Isabelle’s Bridal in North Vancouver often lends my beautiful customers a special dress to wear for their Elegance sessions. So to return the favour, I went to photograph their annual grad fashion show.

Wow, is all I can say! I forgot how different and spectacular the dresses are now. A lot of you will agree, we never had such exquiste gowns to choose from in my day! The colours, beading, sequins, oh my!

The models were all high school students from North Vancouver, volunteering their time, but lucky they had their hair & makeup done by Denise Elliott Beauty Co!

Wonderful goodies to munch on, dj music by 2 scoops productions,  limo by Princess Limousines, they had lots of help to make the evening a success.

I’m sorry I can’t show all the models in every dress, you’ll just have to pay them a visit to see the awesome choices!

You’re beautiful ladies….remember that.

 

Beauty session at studio two photographyElegance session at North Vancouver’s studio two photography.   Are you looking for a unique gift for your mother? You know, the women who has everything?

This lovely young man had an awesome idea; he thought his mom would love to be treated with a hairstyle and full professional makeup application with lashes, followed by a beauty portrait session by me!

Was he right? Yes!

His mom said she hadn’t had her makeup done since her wedding……so what a nice way to be pampered.

She had just the one dress she brought with her, but her outfit for the day was so nice also, bright and cheerful, that she had some shots done in it also. We followed that with some shots of her with her son and you’ll agree, she looks very proud.

This is only a small selection of what she decided on in the end…..but I think and she agreed it was the best gift ever!

Thanks to Jenny V Ruth of Mink Mobile Makeup and Hair for doing such a great job. Bring your mother in today and make some memories!

Jenny and you made such a great team, Jason & I were more than impressed. Thanks for all that you do, Tamara”   Mrs.M
