I am an energetic, easy natured islander. My love for people and early interest in photography sealed my fate in this lifetime. My photography seeks to capture truth and simply enhance what already exists. I am flexible in the way I work. I respect the game plan/idea while trusting my instincts and the organic flow of the session. My work includes all things portrait/people related: commercial and wedding photography, family, maternity and newborn sessions.
I am a relaxed and easy-going west coast girl who is always up for an adventure! My photographic style is modern documentary - I love to capture honest, real moments as they naturally occur, in a clean and simple storytelling way. I've been photographing life in general since I was a kid, but after graduating from photography school in Alberta, I began to focus in on weddings and portraiture. My work has been featured in publications such as Style Me Pretty, Weddingbells, Fly Away Bride, Monday Magazine, and Victoria News, among others.
I am a commercial and editorial photographer specializing in portraiture and lifestyle assignments. For me, photography is really about visual storytelling. My work draws the best from people, capturing truth, playfulness and beauty. I am grateful for what I do; my photographs have been featured on local, regional and national magazine covers and I have photographed celebrities Bif Naked and Erica Ehm.
I've been shooting professionally for 30 years. My style started out as candid imagery born from a love of light and colour, and then through training I learned more about classic lighting and portrait styling. I'd describe my style as free, full of light, and emotional; yet still precise.
I grew up thinking I was a left brain, math loving geek. But my adult life has show me that I am a photographer (wedding and portraits), and I am a dancer. Take that left brain. I have a degree in Anthropology and a diploma in Photography. I guess you could say I've been trained to observe.
