What does your business do?

The SnapHappy Photographer specializes in lifestyle and event photography services.  I’m Kim, the SnapHappy Photographer.  Photographing people is my passion!  I know, it’s awkward to be in front of a camera. I intentionally work to reduce those squirmy moments so I capture you at ease. You’ll also hear my camera in rapid speed to ensure nothing escapes me

When’s the last time you had your photos taken?!  Let’s get you booked for that next family photo, casual portrait, engagement, graduation or team photo…it’s easier than you think!
~Kim Mortimer email: [email protected]

How has COVID-19 affected you?

I was laid off from The Outreach Centre about a month ago.

What are you doing to adapt?

The intention behind my #porchportraits campaign is purely selfish; I want to connect, smile, have fun and be distracted through a means that comes naturally to me… creativity.

It’s been a fun way to engage community while respecting social distancing, self-isolation and quarantine

What kind of help do you need?

I’m seeking employment.

What do you want the community to know?

How does it work? I’ll come to you, use a telephoto lens and capture your family portrait on the front porch or peering through the front window. Images will be shared on my social media platforms. And, you receive downloadable images for yourself. It’s been a fun way to engage community while respecting social distancing, self-isolation and quarantine!

No charge. Free. Donate to your charity of choice if you wish.

Let me know if you’d like to be part of my porch portrait campaign!

I now have out of town bookings in Sylvan Lake & Innisfail for porch portraits.

Check images for dates and DM me if you’d like me to stop by for a photo!

Downtown Business Spotlight: Lashing Out Luxury Lounge

Published on

We’re bringing back our Business Spotlight Project! To start it off this month we are shining our business spotlight on Lashing Out Luxury Lounge! Located along historic Alexander Way – 5116 48 St. in downtown Red Deer, this established studio boasts a very classy and modern atmosphere while offering a very welcoming and comfortable space. We were happy to catch up with Kaely Langlois, co-owner of Lashing Out Luxury Lounge to get the scoop on this successful downtown business.

What is your business?

We are Lashing Out Luxury Lounge!  We are a specialty lash and brow studio with some added aesthetic services.

When did your business open?

 Lashing Out Luxury Lounge has been open for 8 years. Myself and my business partner worked here and were able to transition into ownership about two and a half years ago.

What makes your business unique?

We are the first specialty lash and brow studio to specialize in just lash extensions and brows in Red Deer.

We have very high industry-standard training for our staff, and we are also accredited to train. We take our training very seriously and it shows in the work we do, it sets us apart.

What are some products/services that you offer?

Our services include lash tinting, lash lifting, brow wax and tinting, henna brows, signature lash extensions, hybrid lash extensions, 2D volume extensions, 2 – 4 D volume extensions, 5 – 7 D volume extensions, mega volume extensions, derma-planing, facials, chemical peels, derma fillers, and Botox treatments.

Some products we carry in our building include bath products from Blackfalds, natural cleansers and detergents from Gull Lake, hair bows and baby items from Penhold, two clothing lines and scarves from Calgary, and tumblers from Penhold.

 Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?

We are centrally located and that works well because we have people that come from out of town, the north end and the south end. It’s nice to be right in the middle and its central for everyone. We remain downtown because we want to help in its continued growth and be a part of a thriving community.

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?

I love how they are starting to bring local art into the downtown such as the big mural that is displayed on the building right beside us. I really like the market and the food trucks that happen in the summer.

We are also a part of the Adopt-a-Planner program and we feel it has really helped make the front of our business visually appealing. I think all the programs offered by the DBA are helping bring the downtown back to life. There is a little feel about it, and I think the DBA is really trying to help create positive change downtown.

I love Downtown Red Deer because… It’s the hub of Red Deer! Everything is central and you can find a little bit of everything here. There is good food, shopping and everything you need is here!

Be sure to stop into this unique little studio soon and see for yourself the talent and excellent customer service that make up the team at Lashing Out Luxury Lounge!

City not mandating masks in Red Deer yet

Published on

City Hall

Statement from Mayor Tara Veer, on behalf of City Council, on mask usage in Red Deer

“The mandatory use of masks continues to be a topic of conversation in communities across Alberta and around Canada as we all respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The Government of Alberta has indicated that they do not have province wide plans for mandatory masking and have left the decision to municipalities to make decisions based on their local situation.

The City continues to follow the number of cases in Red Deer and the Central Zone health region very closely. The recent uptick in cases in the region is concerning and serves as a reminder of the importance of following all public health orders to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our community. At this time, given current case numbers within the city, The City of Red Deer is not considering implementing mandatory masking in Red Deer, however this may be revisited at any time given fluctuating case numbers in the city and region along with direction from the Chief Medical Officer of Health.

We are asking our citizens and businesses to follow health and safety protocols on a voluntary basis and for the safety of others. Mask use continues to be strongly recommended, particularly indoors, when physical distancing of two metres from people outside your cohort group is not possible. The Province has made masks available in a number of places across Alberta, free of charge, and The City of Red Deer received masks to hand out for free to transit users. There are also masks available at City recreation facilities for scheduled users to help elevate voluntary public participation in City amenities.

Implementing a mandatory masking policy in public spaces needs to be considered with other health orders and in context with the overall local severity of the pandemic. The caseload in the region is absolutely critical to The City’s consideration of implementing a mandatory mask policy. As such, we continue to have discussions with other local leaders within the Central Zone health region to ensure our decisions are cohesive as we all access the same healthcare services.”
