It is finished!!

Well the time for our grand opening has come and is now gone. In the last few weeks I have spent about 70 hours per week at the studio madly trying to finish our space(to those of you who have not had the pleasure of seeing our space early on in our ownership the transformation really has been amazing). Last night I actually got some sleep and I am finally at a place where my body is beyond total physical exhastion and I am listening and trying to obey my system.

Enough about me, thank you to all who made the time to come and join us for our grand opening, given the weather and all the flu bugs out there we really appreciateyour support and encouragement. The nasty cold and some really nasty flu bugs kept over half of our intended guests away last night, but to the many who made it out the Starbucks coffee and chocolate fountain were quite the hits. If warm chocolate and fruit are not you thing, there were also cheesecakes and hot snacks and who could forget the gummy bears and kettle cooked chips (I love kettle cooked chips!!) The food really was secondary to the people who showed up, It was really wonderful to spend some time catching up with clients and perspective clients as well as friends; my only regret was that I didn't have enough time with all of you who came out last night, I think another evening of food and hanging out is in order and will probably plan it for a time where the chance of -45 with the wind chill is not a probability.

Thanks again to all who joined us and to all who couldn't make it we hope to see you soon.



Did you know?

Rod is now the president of the Manitoba chapter of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC-MB)?

And there will be a chocolate fountain at our grand opening?

Three more sleeps!



Grand Opening almost here!

It's Sonya writing this time. Rod is so busy finishing up the studio renovations, that he hardly has time to think, much less blog.

Our Grand Opening is upon us. Only five more sleeps (how can you tell we have small children?!) Let me tell you, we're not sleeping much these days. The invitations finally got out this week. If you didn't receive one, apologies are in order. I did my best to play detective and track down addresses of clients, old and new, good friends, people who have taken an interest in our business, renovation contractors and anyone else who saw the building before Rod transformed it. But it was a big job, and I'm sure I missed some important people.

Here is the vital information:

Tuesday, January 29th
6-9 p.m.
354 Selkirk Ave. (Aikins entrance)

RSVP to or 221-8413

Hope you enjoy chocolate!!

We're currently working on the menu, last-minute details and of course, prizes! Hope to see you soon!


Pure beauty

There used to be a saying I heard while growing up, it was "Pure as the driven snow." While spending some time visiting family in Saskatchewan while celebrating Christmas I had the opportunity to stop our tan minivan and spend a few minutes capturing God's amazing creation while my wife and kids waited patiently in the van. What is there that speaks of purity like hoar frost on everything you can see? As I saw these images my mind went wild and I was just overcome with the knowledge that I am so small in this universe in which we live. I really am like the dust and yet God has graced me with the opportunity to see amazing art unfolding in the land in front of me. Wow.

I saw much more on our family adventure, you will hear and see more in the future I just thought this was worth a look, I hope you agree.
