What does Photography Mean to us?
Photography, for us, is capturing moments. Not just rare moments where confidence shines in a smile, or the pure happiness that two people show each other with just their eyes. It’s the ability to take a second in time and hold it forever. It is showing someone that they are beautiful, no matter what they believe about themselves. Photography, for us, is a passion. An art, and like most artists, we take the time to perfect it and grow. To be better, so that you can see exactly what we see.
Photography is not just about picking up a camera and clicking a button. It is more complex. We invested in years of school to get that perfect shot. Intricately taught how to control lighting, the environment, the pose, and the photo quality. We are taught how to edit, how to manipulate the image so it appears natural and stunning.
Holding a camera and taking a photo is one thing, but spending hours getting to know someone and seeing how they transform in front of the lens, is another. With a space to just be who we are, we can capture any memory, any emotion, and preserve it for years to come.
I'm not the kind of photographer who likes to get in front of her camera. This being said I always love a good challenge and did something bold and brass by getting my first boudoir session done a few weeks after giving birth! The images came out more beutiful than I hoped. This is exactly what I try to achieve with every single one of my clients. No matter the age, size, shape, etc.
In my spare time when I am not being a mom I am an avid gamer on my custom PC I made built myself. I am a big Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones and Outlander fan and my favourite video game is Banjo and Kazooie on the Nintendo 64. (I have the main characters tattooed on my forearms)
My favourite foods are chicken pasta bake and Nanaimo bars. Teal and a deep grass green are my favourite colours.
One thing my clients should know about me is I make a lot of lame jokes to try and get genuine smiles from every client. I have made it a personal mission that I cannot classify a session as done until I have gotten some good smiles and laughs captured.
