The Inn at the Forks and Riverstone Spa located at the Forks Historic site in Winnipeg Manitoba, while only built in 2005, is undergoing a transformation. Since opening it has always been a beautiful hotel and spa in an excellent tourist area of Winnipeg. The hotel owners have started and completed the first phase of renovations, that will update the property to make it even more stunning than it already is.
Over the next few months we’ll make blog posts to showcase various areas of the hotel, as well as their Lifestyle photography campaign that we’ve also photographed for them. The first area of the hotel to get a facelift was The Riverstone Spa. It started with a newly designed reception area in early 2011. Finished most recently were the steam rooms, saunas, experience showers, locker area and lounge, complete with a new fireplace in the middle of the floor.
The Interior Design firm awarded the task of re-designing the spa was Fenwick Interior Design. This wasn’t the first space we have photographed for them or one of their clients and we are always thrilled to photograph another great space that they have designed.
If you are looking for a spa to treat yourself or a loved one, this is the place to do it at.

For years we have been creating unique, one of a kind art pieces for our clients to display their child portraits and family portraits in their homes. We call them our Fusion Art Prints because they incorporate multiple images from their portrait session into one final art piece.
Recently we had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful family with two beautiful daughters. We created a Fusion Art Print for each of the girls bedrooms, plus one of the family to display at their family cottage. The Fusion Art Prints turned out so beautifully that I had to get a photo of each girl with their art piece when they came in to pick them up. Too cute!!!
Thank you to our wonderful clients for choosing us, Artistic Impressions, to capture your family portraits and child portraits. We know you will enjoy these pieces of art for years to come!

We continue to see trends in certain sectors of the business world where there is a demand for professional photography. Real Estate Agents have had the need for a long time, many years prior to digital for both their headshots as well as the photographs of their residential and commercial listings. However in the last few years we have seen an emerging area in the financial services and mortgage specialists. These two types of professionals have started to use their professional business portraits on business cards, brochures, social media and of course their websites and emails. We have had the privilege of working with the professionals of many of the top financial firms in Winnipeg and continue to provide them with ongoing service so as to maintain consistency in all of their advertising. Here are some recent images we captured for Desjardins, Dundee Wealth and Assante Wealth Management.
If you are an individual or part of a team of professionals, we would be happy to assist you with your photography requirements. We will work with you to create a photo standards package, including session guidelines, lighting specs, background and wardrobe selection and more. Contact the studio for details.

We have had the pleasure of photographing a lovely young lady…Lia…and her family for almost 13 years. So long in fact that not only have our daughters become good friends, but our families have too. Lia saw portraits we had done of our daughter with her violins, and was so excited that she too wanted photographs of herself doing something that she loves. She’s a passionate dancer and thought it would be fun to do a session that is really about her and will show personality and interests in her life at this age. She asked her parents for a session as one of her Christmas gifts. Below is a few portraits of Lia doing something she is passionate about, and of our daughter Joone, showing something that is special to her in her life. Both of these unique sessions represent who these talented young ladies are.
And that is what a unique personalized portrait session is all about. Creating photographs that truly inspire or mean so much to the people within them and the people they touch. These special portraits will forever be a reminder of this girls love of dance and her fantastic abilities. They will be cherished by her and her family for many years to come, and we are so happy that we could do this for them. That is one of the reasons why we think we have the best career in the world.
If you would like to come down to plan a unique session for your daughter or son, grand-daughter or grand-son, please give us a call. What a great Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift it could make too!

The Holiday Inn Winnipeg – Airport West recently completed a beautiful renovation and upgrade to their meeting and small banquet facilities, as well as their pool and recreation area. We were hired to document these rooms for their advertising and their website presence. We really enjoy this area of photography and after over 17 years of photographing interiors for interior designers and architects, we have been offering our services for major hotel chains like Holiday Inn, Wingate by Wyndham, Hilton, Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott and others. Our experience allows us to be more efficient while maintaining the utmost quality for our clients. The experience and images we provide goes one step further, by being able to help our clients book more rooms at better rates and for longer periods of time, essentially increasing their revenue. If you are a hotel owner that is looking to increase revenue by booking out more rooms, call us to ask about how Artistic Impressions can do that for you.
