Online Hosting | Halifax, NS Photography

I'm shaking up the biz a little bit this days and am currently looking for an online hosting site, somewhere my clients can get some decent prints printed.

I know the big ones out there:  pictage, smugmug, mpix, pickpic, but they each have such different options and pricing and catalogues that I get dizzy trying to sort it all out.

Here's ideally what I'd like out of my hosting company:
  • inexpensive (for both me and my clients), but not cheap.
  • quality prints and assorted other products (proofbooks, matboard, canvas, etc)
  • able to ship to canada
  • shipping directly to the client
  • pricing in Canadian dollars would be nice
  • no minimum order
  • digital files available for sale to clients
  • adjustable pricing that I get final say on
I thought I had narrowed the field and found a site, but their recommended $7.00 for a 4X6 print turned me away.

But, if any of you fellow photogs want to weigh in on how you do and what site you use or don't use, I would LOVE it if you would share your information with me!  It would be a huge huge huge help to know how others get it done.

OPA! | Halifax, NS

Last night was another entry in the Birthday Season:  friends Karla and Janice are each celebrating birthdays this week so we ventured to OPA! for a fun birthday dinner with friends and family.  It was hard to get any group shots in so my photos are mostly about the food - which was delicious!!

Popsicle Martinis!

Sangria - I'm not sure what's in it, but I'm trying it next time!

Happy Birthday, Girlies!!

Baptism in Black & White | Halifax, NS

You may remember seeing Ryder before, from here or here, and chances are pretty good that you'll be seeing him again and again as I have several sessions coming up this year that he'll be a part of. 

I was recently lucky enough to be able to photograph his Baptism.  It was a busy ceremony with several babies being welcomed into the Church.  Here are just a few photos from the day...
