A $15 tooth extraction or professional photography?
Last week was a very bad week. My wife, my son and I all had terrible toothaches at the same time. It was just unbearable. We had to find a dentist to accomodate the three of us as soon as possible. So we started calling dentists in our area but none of them could accomodate us. Ok Ok... to say the truth, none of them fitted within our budget: $45 for the three of us. Yes, you heard me right: $45. Well, it is really all we could afford. So we just kept calling until we found
How to make a beautiful family reunion portrait? ... by Connexion Photography
How to make 22 people smile at the same time, look good and be well lit ? How to pose them all? How many lights do I need to photograph them? What lens should I use?

New! Awesome Family Photo Session at Vancouver Fraser River Park
Vancouver is well-known for its multitude of parks and green spaces. When it comes to choosing a park for a family photo session, I am usually really picky. There is one park amongst a few others in Vancouver, where I really like to do my family photo sessions. It's called "The Fraser River Park".

Another beautiful family at Connexion Photography!
It is always a pleasure to photograph such a beautiful family. David came with his family for their photo session and it was quite a blast. Photographing a family is always a pleasure for me as you can see the special bond between dad and his son or mom and her son or daughter. It's nice to see it and it always reminds me how blessed I am with my own family. David, Catherine, Felix and Eliana were in the studio last week and I am glad that the session turned out so good!
