MOOSE CREEK – Photographer and Finch resident Chrissy Lamoureux recently established her photographic studio in Moose Creek, located at Number 5, 54 Labroisse Street and is accessed from Sabourin Street.

The business was started in 2017 and was based in her Finch home. As her business grew, the need for a separate studio became apparent and she moved her business to Moose Creek.  “I love it here” she said, mentioning how the studio set up is good.

Upon entering the spacious and family friendly studio a warm greeting is provided from Lamoureux, and immediately several framed photographs are seen attesting to her talent.

To one side is “the Client Closet”, a room which contains clothing for adults and children to dress in, as well as accessories.  The studio also has a storage area where a wide variety of props are located.

She mentioned how people being photographed only need to have their hair and make-up ready for the session as she has a great selection of clothing to choose from.

“I love capturing the images” said Lamoureux when asked why she became a photographer.  She mentioned how it is important to have pictures of family members such as she had when she was young.  She continued how she is capturing a moment in time for the family and helping to ensure future generations have a record of their ancestors.

She takes wedding, family, holiday, and mini-session photographs, with her speciality being maternity and newborn photos. Lamoureux explained expectant mothers book their sessions at 32-36 weeks, with these sessions lasting about one and half hours.  She likes to be contacted within 24-48 hours after the birth to set up the newborn session, which lasts about three hours. She takes a wide variety of images such as photos of the newborn with siblings and parents as well as a family photo.  The photos are available for viewing about two weeks after they are taken and then once the decision as to which photos will be used are ready for printing.

When asked about challenges faced and overcome, she explained how following a car accident the way photos of infants are taken had to change due to an injury.  This has been overcome and have not affected the quality of the photos.  Lamoureux mentioned those planning to specialize in maternity and newborn photography need to ensure they have training not only in photographic skills, but also developing skills in ensuring the safety and health of the infants especially.

She expressed how it is important to continue developing your skill sets.  Lamoureux explained she takes either courses or received one on one training with professional photographers at a minimum once a year, but often on more occasions.

“I am excited to see what is coming in the future” she said, mentioning her enjoyment at being able to develop a profession from a life-long interest in photography.
