I’m entering my 6th year of participation into a Movember campaign…$6341 dollars raised over the previous 5 years, hooray me! These funds have come from all different people and every year I make a different push, angle, twist on “fundraising”. I’ve made moustache cookies, cupcakes, prepared a limited-seating gourmet lunch and even let the finals donors decide how i should shave some of my Mo away.

This year, and for the first time, I’m offering photo sessions in exchange for donations to my Movember campaign…click HERE to donate now!

Unlike so many ‘generous offers’ I’m not “donating profits” or “50% of ALL proceeds” going to the cause.

No No No!

I am working IN EXCHANGE for your contribution of ($100 or more). 100% of the money you donate goes directly to Movember. I will collect no money, Russell Oliver will NOT be on site to give you money for your gold gold gold so leave Nana’s pearls at home!

So, what WILL I do? I will photograph you or your family or your pet or pet rock for roughly 30 minutes and email you a link with high resolution, edited images…around 10-15 if I had to venture a decent estimation.

WHEN are these shenanigans taking place?!? October 8th and 22nd (if needed)…if and absolutely IF these dates do not work, we can sort out rain dates as needed.

WHERE is the #MOphotosesh going down? I love the light and the backdrop provided by the old prison on York Rd in Guelph. Here’s the dealio…I don’t get paid, I don’t want to drive Hell’s half acre over 2 weekends! Times TBD, but you can count on mornings and early evening appointment times…mid day light is for suckers! Photogs, you know what I’m talkin ’bout!

In all honesty, I’m drafting a schedule now, and have some spots already taken so donate now and let’s get the #Mophotosesh underway!

 

Your #MoBro,

Ronnie and her girls are a busy lot. They even brought a chauffeur along (Grandma) to get the eldest to work on time. We walked around the Old York Rd Prison, which is now a natural conservation area with gorgeous open spaces and old brick and stone work gating it in.

Here are some of my favourite images from this session!

“Sure we can shoot at your house and then hang out at the abandoned prison!” This is how EVERY conversation with a client should start, isn’t it? I’m loving photographing families in their homes. The comfort, the chaos, the comfortable chaos…it’s all part of the beauty that just screams FAMILY!

These guys are relaxed and their near one-year old is cool as a cucumber. We caught some moments that can only happen ‘at home’. After this, we suited up and the old York Rd Prison¬†which is now a popular green space amongst Guelph locals.

Here are some of my favourite images, enjoy!
