As a mother of three, I understand how fast childhood can fly by! My three littles are my world, and the importance of motherhood, and that wild love like no other is what inspires me. My favourite is to capture all the love and moments that are important to your family. You have a legacy to build, let me help document it. Through creating connections in candid poses, bringing out genuine smiles, or delicately posing your new baby, my job is to guide you and help bring those true connections and moments to light.
Whether we are shooting at the ocean, a field or mountain, or in a forest, I am constantly chasing that beautiful light. Soft golden sunsets, or the wild west coast wind and drama, I will work with the elements to create beautiful portraits of your family. In studio I work within a calm and soothing environment and large soft box lighting, to achieve a lovely balance of shadow and highlights.
When we bring home a baby, we start counting in days, then weeks, then months, soon those months become years. We wish we could freeze time and the joy we share with our children, but years from now, your portraits will be what help you travel back in time to these moments again and again and again.
What do we wear?
I am happy to help discuss your vision and lend some advice for wardrobe. If you have a colour in mind, or style, or maybe even have one item of clothing you know you’d like someone to wear.. I can help you piece together a cohesive and pleasing overall look for your family!
What if my child is really shy? I am not sure they will cooperate.
We will make the session fun! Usually the case is a shy little one to start, and by the end I’ve got a new small friend giving me high fives. If it gets too overwhelming, it’s no problem to take a break from shooting too. With years of working with children during sessions, I’ve got quite a few tricks up my sleeve.
What if the weather is awful when it’s our planned session time?
Sometimes we just can’t work around that, and so it’s no problem to reschedule if we have a lot of rain or extreme wind.
