Rudyk Family {Vegreville Family Photographer}

I’ve worked with the Rudyk family even before I first started operating as Davin G Photography. The Rudyk’s were the very first family I ever photographed! I remember quite vividly that moment – Lisa came home from work (she works with Mandy) asking if I would photograph Mandy, Rob, & Locklan. Before that point in my photography career, I photographed landscapes & still life but never photographed people. I was very nervous about it but finally decided I would take Fall photos for them. The date was October 27, 2009 – I remember first starting the session at the Rudyk’s house where I snapped photos of Locklan (who was just a baby). Later, we headed to my parent’s back yard where we decorated a tree with Christmas ornaments as they wanted photos for Christmas cards. I remember it was a very long session & a learning experience indeed but the Rudyk’s were very happy with their photos! I kept practicing, reading, & watching videos as I learned the fundamentals of photography. Almost exactly a year later, I was once again asked by Rob & Mandy to take Fall photos of their family. These photos were some of the very first photos I posted on my Facebook Page as I began advertising my work publicly. From there, things kinda took off for me as I continued to take photos for the Rudyk’s whether they were maternity, newborn, family, or head shots for Rob’s business. I ended up working with the Rudyk family every single year since even before I launched Davin G Photography! I’m extremely grateful that I took Lisa’s advice back in 2009 to photograph the Rudyk’s. Although I still enjoy taking the occasional landscape photo & the odd photo of a cup o’ joe, I prefer portrait photography & that I have the Rudyk’s to thank! Who knows where I’d be today if I didn’t step up & take those family photos four years ago.

It’s amazing to see how I’ve progressed as a photographer over these four years (also how my logo has changed!):


Here’s the latest Fall family photos I recently took of the Rudyks (2013):

    It’s pretty amazing to see how you’ve grown as a photographer and how we’ve grown as a family over the past four years. We were more than happy that you were willing to practise some of your first portraits on us and even happier that you were inspired to continue. We really adore all of our photos, even the practise ones. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and Lisa over the years and we look forward to many more phenomenal photo shoots with Davin G Photography.ReplyCancel
