Today I got the results of the latest Print Competition I entered. I was awarded 2 Silver "Honor of Excellence" awards. Wow. Having received those two, I am now at 5, which puts me in the Associate Category with the biggest worldwide group of Wedding and Portrait Photographers Internationally.

These awards are so important to me because they are judged by the worlds BEST master photographers and being recognized by my peers in one of the hardest and most prestigious print competitions is just so incredible. Of course, my customers liking the images I take of them is what really matters and I always put that first, these images I submit are crossing over into storytelling and personal emotion.... I do them for ME!

To view them in the gallery along with all the other award winners, you can see them here:

To view mine, click on "View by Category" (on the top left). One image is in the Portrait section under Children, and the other in the Creative section under Illustrative.

Here are the two images that were awarded. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Sunsets in Collingwood are my absolute favourite thing to shoot for my soul. They always make me FEEL good. This was taken tonight, and believe it or not, this photo is completely untouched, except to straighten the horizon and remove a hair that was on my lens. Seriously, when Mother Nature gives you absolute perfection, (both the Sunset and the child), you don't need to do anything to it!    #TEMPOPhotography

Claire... I don't know what I'd do without her.... she steams, she cleans, she invoices and chases down unpaid invoices. She spots my little newborns, and cleans up after them! :o She talks to all of you when you call, and carefully packages your orders and archives your files. She even holds a broom for a 1/2 hour when asked... without complaint. ;) She's my office manager, my right hand, and sometimes my left. She's amazing!

Miss R came in to celebrate turning 8.  She wanted to be either a fairy or an ice princess, so we just did both!  :)

TEMPO Photography has a TWITTER PAGE!  Woot Woot!  To celebrate, we are going to have a HUGE social media "shout out" CONTEST. 

It's really easy, I'm going to give a free session (see list below), every month from now until September.  All you have to do is give us a shout-out on one or all of the following (the more you do, the more chances to win).  You may enter every month if you like, but the slate is wiped clean after every draw, they will not carry over to the next.  :)  Just follow these 2 simple steps.

1) Using the Social media outlet of your choice, give us a shout out of some kind: either a testimonial, a kind word, post an image we've done of you (Linked from our page please, not scanned) and link one of OUR media sites listed below (a link to our blog page/website,  Facebook or Google+ page).  Another acceptable way to enter is to leave a Review on our Facebook or Google+ page in the review section.  It will also count if you are at our studio and Tweet that you are there or Check-in from there.  SO MANY ways to enter!  ;)

Although I'm not sure how to reflect it on the About Us Page, here's some info about our hours.

I am a one-woman Photography Studio with 2 PT office employees.   Therefore, we are open for Photography Sessions, By Appointment Only, pretty much 7 days a week.  Those must be booked in advance.

I cannot list set hours for the other days, as I am always out at meetings, on location, attending events, running errands and spend as much time in the studio and available as I can.  I just cannot put set hours to that.  We do not sell retail product, so do not keep retail hours.  

As a general rule, our store sign will give you the most accurate depiction of when you can find me in studio!

We have our office manager Claire in 2 days a week, Monday's and Thursday's  from 1-3, for pick-ups, questions, walk in inquiries, occasional passport photos and help with contracts and payments.

My assistant Stephanie is often in Tuesdays, and this is when I schedule most studio sessions that require assistance (Newborns, product, specialty sets, etc.)

I MAY take the occasional Friday off as I work most Saturday's, and I try and stay completely closed on Sundays, except in the busy Holiday months.  I do, occasionally schedule shoots on Sundays when there are no options for my clients.

Because our limited "guaranteed" hours are restricting for pickups and the like, we are always willing to hand deliver or ship, so please don't go out of your way to make those hours if you can't.  Just let us know.

I'm happy to come in for evening viewings and pick-ups, but this service is for existing customers only.  (Being a girl, it makes me nervous to meet strangers after business hours)  ;)

I wish I could give you daily hours set in stone, but the nature of the job takes me in and out of the studio for all sorts of reasons.  To ALWAYS make sure your needs are met, give us a call.  We'd love nothing more than to sit down and talk and answer your questions, so please feel free to make a free/no-obligation appointment to secure a time when you have my undivided attention!  

Thanks, and let me know if you have ANY questions!
