2008, Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Award by CBDC Péninsule acadienne

Living in Caraquet, New Brunswick, Karine Wade gives life to photography. She specializes in the art of photography, is an expert in commercial photography for advertising and provides personalized custom services. Thanks to her friendly personality, Karine creates a climate of trust with her customers who realize that she has captured their memories with her wonderful photographs.
Karine is pleased to be able to forge long-term relationships with her customers. Before each photo session, she discusses with customers everything with them, neglecting no details. She creates a soothing environment that helps make customers feel at ease so that she can immortalize precious moments.  To quote Karine, "I love being an entrepreneur, every day is different, it’s not monotonous and it is always interesting. I always do business with clients in a good mood!”

Among the many services provided include: wedding photography, business photography and pictures for advertising purposes, family photographs and pictures of special events. Karine works closely with graphic designers for CD covers and promotional products. This creative professional is renowned for her "special touch”. “I often feel I immortalize moments when I see newly weds cry looking at their photo album, my hard work is rewarded".
After the wedding photos, come children, anniversaries and other special occasions where Karine’s services are sought after. For this wise businesswoman, building long-term relationships with customers is essential for her business. If Karine was to give advice to aspiring entrepreneurs, she would say: “Have absolute confidence in your capabilities and act according to your beliefs”
Karine received the Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the Acadian Peninsula delivered by the New Brunswick Association of CBDCs in 2008. "This has given me enormous pleasure." "I had just returned to the region and it was wonderful to receive a warm welcome as well as this recognition".

Community involvement is of great importance to Karine. She does work for the local network of women in business, participates in the organisation of activities for Spring Break for children by offering photography, painting and Visual art workshops. In addition, she strives to encourage people to think about recycling and the environment by participating in ecological initiatives.
The future is very promising for Karine Wade. Her dream would be to live on a farm where she would have her own photography studio and could raise animals, focus on landscapes and offer an experience for children and their families. This would be a way for people to appreciate and reconnect with the Earth.

"I would like to thank you for picking Ben's Clothing for the retail consulting makeover.  I very much enjoyed talking to Barbara.  She has wonderful insites on what to do to refresh my store.  I was extremly excited of the ideas put together thats in my budget for now and also in the near future.
 
The 1st part of the seminar, had opened my eyes to the reality of my challenges and concerns, statistics, operating cost and marketing which is a huge part that can not be ignored. It's a must to have a list of issues to know it and control it.  This is a large part of my battles that I face but placed them in the back burner. 
 
When Barbara came into my store I wasn't sure what to expect because in the seminar she was leaning towards makeovers for a new store or toronto style store.  I had no idea that a little bit of paint in a different color will bring out what I want to promote.  She had alot of new ideas that are in the budget and I'm going to make it happen!
 
Thank you again for filling me in with the seminars that are offered.  I'm always willing to get informed and always moving forward."
