Vermilion School Portraits | Personalized School Portraits

Dragon Hare Studios – We received a phone call from a client looking for a new twist on the yearly school portrait. Upon hearing how old her children were, I suggested she have each of her children write their name and age out for us. We then took their own handwriting and placed it into their school portrait!

We had so much fun with this that next year, we will offer this as an option for our School Days Limited Edition! Sign up for our monthly email newsletter to find out when we will hold these portraits next year! Send us an email via our contact page asking to be added to our newsletter!

Mannville family photographer | A century of birthdays!

Dragon Hare Studios – Ruth Gray is a name that not too many people that call Mannville “hometown” will not know. Ruth is celebrating her 100th birthday this month and has spent the better part of her life serving as a teacher and volunteer in this community. She taught my dad, was my substitute teacher, served in my church, helped to decorate and cut the birthday cake on Canada Day, helped out at the fair and numerous other organizations and events around Mannville. There are not too many memories of my youth that do not have her as a part of them. I imagine this holds true for most anyone who grew up in Mannville!

This month, the Village of Mannville is celebrating this amazing woman and all she has accomplished in her lifetime. It was a joy to visit with her and photograph her with a few pieces from the Mannville Historical Museum – readers she had used to teach school long ago! She was even remembering the names noted in the readers as students!

Happy Birthday Ruth! Thank you for being such a huge part of my memories from growing up, Mannville wouldn’t have been the same without you!

Lloydminster Wainwright Vermilion Wedding Photographer | Vermilion Wedding

Dragon Hare Studios – Earlier this summer, we participated in a magical day. Ray and Elaine found each other late in life, but their dedication to each other, and the true, untarnished love for each other just glows from each of them. The entire day I was filled with gratitude to be a part of their day, to witness this union of amazing love. The smiles they have for each other reflect all the emotions they feel for each other and it was truly powerful for those that watched it. I know their were a lot of married couples smiling at each other this day in the church!

Congratulations Ray and Elaine, we wish you a lifetime filled with nothing but happiness and true joy.

As it rained 3.5 inches on their wedding day, we ended up photographing all their portraits in our studio – from their first look, to their family and formal portraits! It is absolutely fantastic to have the studio as a backup plan in case of wet, soggy weather! We were able to meet Elaine at the door armed with umbrella’s to keep everyone dry! If you are a bride that is hoping for an outdoor wedding, please seriously consider having Dragon Hare Studios do your wedding photography so that you have an automatic back up plan! (if we are too far from the studio, we always carry a massive amount of lighting equipment to light up any venue for indoor portraits!).
