“Princess, just because we cracked a few cases with fairy tales before doesn’t mean it’s going to work again this time...”

After retrieving the memories of an amnesia-stuck royal and recovering the whereabouts of the mysterious Miss Melody Merchant, Princess Abigail and Detective Reid Simon have joined forces to take down the corrupt crime boss Fortress Jones in this thrilling fairy-tale film noir. Princess Confidential: Fortress Falls is the third part in Promise Productions’ Princess Confiential series with a new play ever two years since the 2013 Edmonton Fringe Festival. This latest instalment is sure to thrill ages 6 to 106, and audiences don’t need to have seen previous plays to catch this caper!

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Lindsay

We met these three (plus pup) a few blitzes ago when their little dude was just brand new. Now he's an awesome, little sir full of ideas and character. 

...and so concludes our Spring Portrait Blitz posts. We will be setting up the next blitz soon so keep your eye on our Facebook page. 

See you next blitz!

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Shereka

While it's always awesome to see some of our favourite clients at each of our blitzes, it is also nice to meet some new faces. Shereka and her crew found us through a referral and we couldn't have been happier spending some time with them.

A lot of laughs were had as we toured the Le Marchand Manor capturing this family in a moment in time. Hope to see you all again soon!

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Elizabeth

When we set up these photo blitzes, we love seeing the different group combinations that show up. Sometimes it's a couple and their dog, sometimes and small family, and sometimes a large extended family... and their dog. With that, it was a treat when Elizabeth showed up with her clan, plus some grandparents. This session in particular felt like it was all about the moments in between the more "set up" shots. A little running around. A little dance break here and there. 

Having chased around my own kids for years to get photos of them, I was happy to be able to keep up with this crew. Enjoy the quick glimpse into what we got that day.

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Stacey

Another family that we have seen blitz after blitz. Now there are four and things are looking pretty great. They were all smiles during the session as we ran around the manor finding cool angles in which to take pictures.

We hope to see you four for many more sessions to come.

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Christina

Christina found us because of her brother Scott, who also participated in this Blitz. Scott and his wife Biddy have been at several of our sessions actually, and we were happy to meet more of the family.

One of the fun things about this session was trying to get the older daughter so smile. She was playing shy for a lot of the session but we were able to get her to start enjoying the idea of having her photo taken. The younger daughter seemed to be a natural in front of the camera though!

Here are some of the photos of the family.

Cassie & Drew's New Addition!

We photographed Cassie & Drew’s wedding last year and had a fantastic time! They are one of our absolute favourite couples. So we were thrilled to hear the news that they had recently added a member to their family.

Their daughter was born at the end of June and at the time of our session was just about a month old. Apart from a few crying moments, she did great! We love holding newborn sessions in the family’s own home. We feel it makes it more personal. The great light coming into Cassie & Drew’s bedroom made for a perfect setting for the bulk of the photos.

Congrats Cassie & Drew, we are so happy to see how your little girl has brightened your lives.

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Marika

Dave has known Marika for many years. We took photos of her while she was pregnant with their little guy and then we followed that up with a family session with Marika, her husband Stephen, and their then 6 month old baby.

Their session consisted of bubble blowing, coaxing their little dude with chocolate almond milk, and of course lots of laughs. We had a fun time with them once again.

Here are a few photos from their Blitz session.

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Biddy

It's that time again. Time to show off some of our favourite shots we got from our Portrait Blitz in June.

Today we're showcasing this awesome little bunch who have participated in almost every blitz we've had. It is always cool to see a family grow. The two littles' personalities are really starting to shine through. Can't wait to take photos of them for years to come.

The Smith Family

One hot summer day we headed south of Edmonton to the Smith family acreage. Tehl booked us as a Mother’s Day gift for Julie. What a great guy!!

Julie, Tehl, and the 3 boys were all looking sharp for their session. It took only a short time for the boys to warm up to getting their photos taken and they had fun. Help from the grandparents was much appreciated too!

One great moment was when the boys all spontaneously held hands. It was one of those “can’t plan it any better” moments, that’s for sure!! I am pretty sure Julie shed a tiny tear when she saw that happen.

It was a pleasure working with this family and hope we can do it again.

Here is a sampling of photos we captured that day.

Spring Portrait Blitz - Team Jen

Jen is the President and CEO of Junior Achievement for Northern Alberta. We have worked with JA for several years now. We were very happy it finally worked out that Jen, her husband, and their daughter could finally participate in one of our Blitz days.

Jen is a very busy woman. Aside from her job as CEO, she is an avid runner and participates in triathlons on a regular basis. She was also recently honoured as a Woman of Vision by Global News Edmonton.

Bubbles were a plenty during our session and their little one had a field day (and did NOT want to give up her bubble wand!). She was having so much fun running around so we just snapped some photos of her playing. Love the smiling face she always had!

Looking forward to working with Jen and her family again!
