Lulu's Photo Shoot

For my mom and dad's 60th anniversary, my sisters and I decided it was time to get family portraits done as it had been quite a few years since we have had them done.

We went to Picture Perfect Portraits in Saskatoon and they said we could choose about six to eight groupings.  When we were deciding what groupings to do, I asked Joyce to let the photographer know that I was bringing Lulu and would like some pictures done of her.  I had been thinking about getting her photo done by a professional  for quite awhile but hadn't ever gotten around to it.

The photographer, Adam was excited to have Lulu as a subject.  His mom had chickens as a child that followed her to school.  Adam couldn't wait to tell his mom about Lulu.

The following are some of the proofs that included (or showcased) Lulu.  We had other photos done while she waited patiently in her crate.

Adam started first with me having my arm around Lulu so she would feel comfortable before I left her on her own.

Then he started snapping photos of Lulu alone and I think they turned out marvelous.

Lulu was very busy looking around at everything.
I stood near Adam and called Lulu but there was so much to look at she ignored me.

It is going to be hard to choose which photos to enlarge as I love them all.
I was so proud of her because she sat so nice on the pillar and didn't make a fuss.

I am so glad that we had these photos done and that Adam was such a good sport.

I now will have some lovely photos of my sweetie to hang on the wall in her corner of the kitchen.

We had the group pictures done last and when we were almost finished, Adam said to go and get Lulu so she was in some of the group shots as well.  She is hard to see in the proofs because of the watermarks.

At the end of the session, Adam asked another photographer to snap his photo with Lulu so he could send it to his mom.  They then posted it on their Facebook page.
All in all, it was an exciting day.  The photo session went great plus then at supper, Michael, my youngest son told us he asked Becky, his girlfriend to marry him the evening before.  Michael has always been fairly mum about his girlfriends and we didn't meet Becky until that night at supper!
After spending time with her on that anniversary weekend, I couldn't be happier.  She is a lovely girl plus as a bonus, she has two young children so I am instant grandma!  Woohoo!


  1. These are AWESOME. I'd LOVE to have some professional shots of me w/ my hens. Hubby tries, but they always come out blurry or my mouth is wide open as I'm telling him how to use my camera. I don't know how you are going to choose. My first thought was to get one of those picture frames that has three or four openings and put in several photos that you like best. That's what I would do. Thanks for sharing these.

    1. Thanks! I am SOOO happy with the photos! :)

  2. WOW!!! Joan, Lulu looks adorably gorgeous, as do you :)

    What lovely mementos of a gorgeous girl xxxxxxxxx

  3. Aww, what nice photos of Lulu! I love the 4th photo from the top... She looks like she's saying, "Ok, I'm ready for my Glamourshot!" What a treasure. He did a great job.

    Congratulations on your son's engagement and the new additions to the family. Have fun Christmas shopping! :)

    1. Thanks! I love them too! And new grandkiddies are SOO much fun!

  4. Joan, I love the pictures of you with Lulu. I love too, the way that Adam is holding Lulu. A lot of love and care.
