Weddings are Kara Selby's passion. She's been the bride in one, a guest at several, and the lead photographer at more than 50 matrimonial celebrations. This extensive experience has imbued Kara with an instinctive understanding of these events as a whole, and has trained her to avoid common glitches, such as forgetting to blur the face of an undercover best man. With the help of other shutterbugs at Inspired Photography, Kara captures the intimate details of a bride's big day, from close-up shots of bridal jewellery and bouquets to posed portraits of the wedding party and candid shots of the couple's first dance.

Kara also exports her signature style to portrait photography, snapping heartwarming photos of pregnant mothers, newborns, and families. She frequently swaps traditional eye-level portraits for quirky canted angles and aerial shots of sleeping babies in colour and black and white. Her studio also plays host to playful boudoir shoots that often incorporate props ranging from stilettos and pearls to guitars and umbrellas.

Not content merely to stay behind the lens, Kara passes her substantial image savvy on to pupils via hands-on, in-studio workshops that help nascent photographers get acquainted with their camera’s operations and functions through interactive tutorials and by reading embarrassing diary entries from the operations manual.

In the mornings, Kathleen Whippler—YMCA of Regina’s senior director of funds development, marketing, and communications—greets a group of ladies on their way to an arthritis exercise class. They’ve told her how the class helps keep aches at bay for the rest of the day. In the afternoon, she sees parents drop their kids off at the Y’s special-needs program. They’ve told her that before the program, there was nowhere for their kids to go, let alone a place they were excited about. Experiences like these keep Whippler passionate about her work at YMCA of Regina. “You can see the difference you make—what I do affects the lives of other people.”

These programs reflect YMCA of Regina’s overarching mission to build healthy communities. As bustling community hubs, both locations tout dozens of programs and amenities, such as four-lane pools, cardio machines, free weights, and more than 65 weekly exercise classes. Furthermore, the centres strive to make fitness a key part of any lifestyle; personal trainers lead private sessions, fitness classes include yoga and Zumba, and the Northwest centre invites guests to scale a climbing wall.

Although physical fitness is a critical part of overall wellness, the Y’s services extend far beyond the workout room. The centres host an alternative suspension program that strives to transform school suspensions into positive, transformative experiences, and the Community Café provides youth with job training. Whippler says services like these help form tight-knit communities. “It’s just a place to belong,” she says.

Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.
