Meet Cherlyn

I've worked many jobs over my lifetime but since having kids, and also losing my mom, I decided that instead of telling my kids to chase after their dreams, like my mom had, that I would take my own advice and make my dream into a reality. It was a lot of hard work and many sleepless nights, but it was all worth it to get to where I am today. I would describe my photography style as documentary or lifestyle with an editorial flair. I aim to capture love & life in its genuine glory. My work has been featured in Poptastic Bride, Mazelmoments and The Lovely Bay. I am also a member of Fearless Photographers and the WPJA.

Three Things

  1. When I'm not taking photos you can find me chasing after my two kiddos, Jackson "Jax" and Raima, with the help of my supportive husband Charles. We love going on road trips and hiking through deserts and mountains.
  2. I can't live without adventure.
  3. I like to make things - from clothes to furniture. I have a vocational certificate in fashion design and pattern-making. I love puzzles so when people have an issue with something they can't quite figure out or need help with - they come to me.
