Something I have learned over the past few years of raising two happy and very busy little boys, is that life seems to be going by faster and faster everyday. I truely believe that a photograph is like a glimpse into the soul. It is also the most precious gift whether it be a memory of a certain look, an unique expression or pictures from a special event. these are the moments from life you can always look back and on remember with a photograph.
Photography has been the key to holding the memories alive within my own family (especially in the first few months after each of my boy's were born when there wasn't much sleep happening). And for the many families, couples, and individuals I have had the pleasure of photographing over the years, I hear time and time again, they are so happy I was there to capture special memories for them as well.
I have lived on Vancouver Island pretty much my whole life. Much of the inspiration for my on location photography comes from the ocean, river, and many of the beautiful parks we have around the island. I absolutely love capturing candid, real expressions of people as they are with beautiful backgrounds that complement the overall mood of the photo session.
I strive on making photo sessions as fun and relaxed as possible. I love using the natural colors, landscapes, backgrounds and interesting angles in each and every photograph I take to create a certain mood for each and every picture. I also love working in my studio in Shawnigan Lake. It is a perfect place for precious little newborns, or headshots, where we don't have to worry about the weather outside.
The arts, photography and music (I am also a piano teacher and pianist) are a way of life for me. I feel it is my true calling, my passion and my love. I feel so incredibly blessed that I am able to share my vision and my passion of photography with my wonderful clients. I am thankful everyday for this amazing job.
