Spring Children’s Portraits

April 6, 2017 Published by

Spring has arrived! What better way to celebrate Spring in Niagara than with a children’s portrait session that includes live baby chicks! I am fortunate enough to have a generous connection at Minor Brothers Farm Supply in Niagara on the Lake who is opening up for me on the Sunday so that I can get some great shots of the kids interacting with the baby chicks. Unlike the Christmas set that was full of props, props here will be kept to the minimum as I want the focus to be on the kids and the chicks!


Christmas Children’s Portraits in St. Catharines Ontario

Merry Christmas!
Red Door Photography was thrilled with the weather and the turn out to its annual Children’s Christmas Portrait Event. This year a lot of planning and hard work went into the preparation for the Hot Cocoa Stand backdrop. It took six months to gather all of the various props to make the set just perfect! Thanks to Sandi’s Porch Pots for the amazing wreath and cedar bough used in the set. In keeping with the theme we had a hot cocoa table set up with hot chocolate, marshmallows and homemade cookies(thanks to Debbie at Butterfly Bakery) for the kids for after their photographs. We photographed from 9am-5pm with only one half hour break, it was a great day. The editing is also now complete and we are just waiting on the orders from the professional printer in Toronto to arrive just in time for Christmas. Look forward to our Spring Shoot! Information to come.

October 21, 2016 Published by

Fall is the perfect time of year to take advantage of great fall colours for family or children’s portraits. These make fantastic Christmas gifts and allow Red Door Photography & Design turn your favorite photograph into this years Christmas Card! This past weekend I was fortunate enough to photograph for a repeat customer, her two boys are growing so fast and they love having their portrait taken, with a bit of goofing around! We used the 12 mile Creek trail off of Martindale in St. Catharines Ontario that provided great fall colours and lots of different photo backdrops.

Fall Wedding Photographs In Niagara Falls Ontario

Wade/White Wedding
In mid September Red Door Photography was invited to photograph the wedding of Cindy Wade and Jason White. The ceremony took place in the evening at a quanite Niagara Falls chapel followed by drinks,dancing and lots of great food at Eagles Nest Golf Course. The only problem was the weather was not cooperating! The original plan to do photos on the lush green golf course were quickly changed and although we did venture on the covered walkway at Eagles Nest the main after ceremony photos were taken inside Eagles Nest. Its amazing what you can capture and create by simply moving some tables and chairs around, it also helps to have very flexible clients!

13th Street Winery St. Catharines Ontario

Every day on my way to work I pass 13th Street Winery/Whitty Farm markets where they have been growing sunflowers! The Whitty family have been family friends for years and I called Karen Whitty to ask permission to photograph the only sunflower field that has not been harvested and is still bursting with amazing colour! As sunflowers turn in the direction of the sun we made the most of this outing and got some great shots! Perhaps a sunflower would add some flair to a new wine label in the near future?Whitty Farms Sunflowers 13th Street Winery 13th Street Winery St. Catharines St. Catharines Ontario Whitty Farms 13th Street Winery St. Catharines Ontario

Julie and Mark Wedding Invitation and RSVP cards.
When Julie first contacted me over a year ago to design a custom wedding invitation I jumped at the opportunity to return to my childhood! The theme of Julie and Mark’s wedding is vintag Super Mario Brothers! Combining different elements (including images and the official Super Mario Brothes font) from the iconic Nintendo video game created a truly one of a kind invitation and RSVP card.
