What a Great Month- Enjoying the Sunshine! :)

Illumination Fotography was at a Grand Opening yesterday and so, I just wanted to mention the Castle Down's Farmers' Market in Edmonton, AB. Last nights event was to officially kick off the opening
of a new market in North Edmonton; 10811- 146 Ave Moose Lodge. It was a great turn out with 947 people; maybe more! It's a Great, Home Made, Home Grown, Home Baked Farmers' Market.

I did the photos for the event and will be posting them at: this week.
You can also find a list of Vendors that have been there from the week before and a lot are regulars!

I do have a table and it does displays prints, canvas and sells assorted prints sizes. I also promote photography services; for events and portraits.

I will be at the Castle Down's Farmers' Market, every Wednesday from 4pm-8pm.

The New thing that I could introduce is, the Photo Booth, I am very excited about this! It is a set up that is just like a mini studio set! :) Two custumes right now; the fairy and the Ballerina; any mini shoots are available and the props available, will grow, I am sure :) Starting at $10.00 per person for a 5x7. (15minutes)

Hope to see you there, ! :)

Highlights from 2009

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Sunday morning, I ventured out of town to a place called Didsbury, AB. It' about 2.5 hours away from Edmonton.
I met up with Kelly Mitchell and Philip Litke whom I've had a pleasure of getting to know. Niagara School of Imaging in ON is where I met these Western photographers.

So, during this visit we made cabbage rolls from scratch and of course we played in the studio. Here are some Images that I captured from the weekend.

Rock Star Session

 Fire fighter Session

Then, I was able to shoot during Philip Like's Cake Smashing Session.
What is this really?

Well, 1 year old's  that attack their birthday cake. Afterwards, their older 5 to 7 sisters finished the cake smashing. The cake never stood a chance!

All the Best for 2011


As we enter a new year, it is common to think about our goals that we wish to fulfill. I would like to start this year with a blog of my goals this year.

Last year, I spent most of my time as a vendor at the Farmer's Markets and craft shows. It was a really great learning experience. The first day at Alberta Avenue Farmer's Market was indoor/ outdoor. I had decided that it would be Best to set up outdoors. There I was with my canopy tent and two tables of photography prints. I thought that it would also be Best to design my space with light decorations. I thought it looked good for my very first day and then it got Windy...need I say more? So, from that I learned that I didn't need all those decorations to stand out. Simplicity is Best.

January - The 1st. market starts for myself, Saturday January 15th @ Capilano Mall 9am-5pm.
I can not say that I will be there all year but for now I am committed to Capilano for the duration of the winter.

This year I will try the Edmonton Downtown Outdoor market one Saturday a month. There is a New Farmer's Market that I would like to attend on Wednesdays.
Alberta Beach on Thursdays and I will try the Calgary Farmer's Market. My goal is to keep blogging about what I'm up to!
