I am a family, wedding, and lifestyle photographer, based in the lower mainland of beautiful B.C. Canada. I’ve dreamed of being a photographer for as long as I can remember. While taking a few years to travel and live abroad, I studied photography online through NYIP, and now that I’m a bit more settled down I’m pursuing my dream job!
When it comes down to it, I am a people person through and through.
I love capturing all of the weird, unique, interesting and mundane parts that make up a person. I am passionate, overly enthusiastic about the small details in life, and if I see a beautiful landscape I immediately picture how a loving couple would fit into it.
I’ve always loved art, going through many different phases and different mediums of expressing myself for as long as I can remember (sorry to all of my teachers growing up for the endless doodles on every sheet of school work I touched). It wasn’t until I was 9 and picked up my dad’s new DSLR that I fell in LOVE with photography. With drawing, I could express myself. With photography though; I found I could capture a genuine moment in someone else’s lives as seen THROUGH my eyes. With photography I could express WHO someone is, the little details that make them up, and by putting my own self into the images, I could capture genuine emotion.
Photographing the connection between people is what I am passionate about. I love capturing the genuine moments that make up a life; whether that be a typical day spent at home as a family, or the amazing yet fleeting moments of your wedding day. I want to capture the candid, the messy, the in-between, the tears, the nose crinkles. I want you to be able to hear the belly laughs by looking at an image! Real, emotional moments are what really get me. My personal favorite days are the ones spent with my husband and loved ones, in nature, doing something we love, really being present in the moment, and laughing until my cheeks hurt. I think it’s the simple things that are worth being captured. What can bring you back to a specific memory in time so clearly as a photograph?
I’m all about natural light, horses, dark chocolate, an image that tells a story, traveling, singing and songwriting with my husband, surfing, eating new foods… I’m not about stiff, posed, emotionless, flat images.
If you want someone to tell your story for the genuine parts that make you up, I’d love to be your story teller.
