Let's capture your love together. But first, you may want to know who I am and why I do what I do.
I understand how these photographs become heirlooms for generations to come. I have a framed photo of my grandparents on their wedding day. I was lucky enough to wear the same necklace my grandmother's wore at her wedding at my wedding too. These quick moments of time and memory turn into little legacies that we look back on for many years. Here I am looking at this photo of my grandparents beautiful day 70 years later.
I was handed my first camera when I was seven years old. It became a passion and I began to take photos of wildlife, landscapes and my family. I was lucky enough to travel in our van when I was a kid so was able to see a lot of our province. Over the years I started photographing people and capturing those little moments shared between friends and people I love. It meant a lot to be able to find those big feelings in those little moments.
My goal is always to create a relaxed and creative environment where you two can shine as you are. I love hearing your favourite stories and pastimes together. This is about working in a fun setting where you sort of forget I'm even there (but you don't forget because we're usually giggling all together about something silly). My philosophy is also that dogs are always welcome.
What I like to do
I surf, take photographs, hike, swim, forage, camp, and hang out with my dog and family. I love eating chips and salsa, finding quiet nooks of the ocean for a picnic and exploring Clayoquot Sound. It is a simple life but a wonderful life.
Who I love
I am surrounded by an amazing family and chosen family. I spend most of my time with my 16-month old daughter, Frankie Jean, my husband and my dog, Eddy. We spend a ton of time on the beach picking up shells and sea glass. I also can't say no to a nice cocktail with the fam at sunset.
Moments from my life
Here is a montage showing a little more about my background so you know more about me :). It's always nice to know who will be taking your photos! Some of these I am in and some of them I took. Some are with my iphone with no filter and some are with a film camera. Let me know what you two like doing together too. I love hearing your stories and favourite times you have had together.
