Vibe98.5 Cutest Kid Contest – Vote for #8!!

Here in Calgary, we have a local radio station called Vibe98.5 which plays  top 40 hit music.  The station is one of the biggest, if not the most popular in the area.

Currently they are holding a contest called Calgary’s Cutest Kid Contest.  Wuzzat gotta do with photography?  A few months ago I had the privilege of photographing the adorably handsome Lincoln.  Recently I just found out that Lincoln has made the top 20 cutest kids of Calgary!  How exciting is that!  This list was pared down from an initial entrant list of over 5000!!  So while I’m not trying to sway your vote, I’m gonna do my best to convince you to vote for Lincoln – he’s #8 on the list.  G’head, give’m a vote!  His parents and I would appreciate it.  And why wouldn’t you vote for him?  He’s ridiculously cute!  #8 – that’s the magic number.  Coincidentally, in the Chinese culture, the #8 is the luckiest number.  When spoken, it sounds like the word “luck”. So there you go, I’ve given you some cultural love, now go and give Linc some love! The pictures below were taken when he was only 2 weeks old.

Eden & Dan: engaged in Marda Loop

Normally I include a short commentary on all my couples before we get to the pictures, but I know Eden has been waiting with excited curiosity to see the photos from their engagement session.  Her excitement is like a 7 year old girl waiting for her first pony ride.  His excitement is knowing that he gets to spend his life with this gorgeous girl.  So here you go Eden and Dan, your engagement session for all your (facebook) friends to see.  I’m really looking forward to your wedding later this year!

Keepin’ his eyez on the prize

For An Occasion Such As This

Editing Indecisive

Oftentimes while I’m editing a session, I go back and forth between the edits I’ve made.  I can’t make up my mind what looks better!  Does this look too contrasty? Did I dodge the face too much? Did I burn the face too much?  Should this be a black and white image?  Should I even be editing this image or should I just leave it on the cutting room floor?!!?

So having said that, I’ve re-edited the sneak peek photo that I did for Eden and Dan and this is what I came up with:

engagement photos inside the Belmont Diner in Marda Loop Calgary

Compare this new edit with the previous version here:

Which do you prefer?  I have a pretty good idea which way I’m leaning (for now anyways).  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Amy Sheane I gotta go with the new edit. That mica glass contrasts better in colour. That’s my two cents!April 15, 2010 – 9:09 am

MF I like the one with colour!April 14, 2010 – 7:42 pm

Truong D I like the coloured one. Something about the wood brown and the coca cola red blending really well together.April 14, 2010 – 6:51 pm

Rachel Boekel I dig the new edit – it looks old school. The vibe has a lot more ‘diner’ to it. Nice work!April 14, 2010 – 6:42 pm

Shannon Love the warmth of the colour one better.April 14, 2010 – 6:18 pm
