A little about me... Born & raised in Western Canada. Downhill skier and former competitive rock climber. I seek adventure, laughs, and friendship. Things that make me happy: time with people I love, chai lattes, baby snuggles, and puppies <3
I'm lucky because... I married a catch of a guy almost 7 years ago. Highschool sweethearts. <3 He's my tech guy, assistant, and one of my second shooters. I'm also a mom to our german shepherd puppy and sweet daughter.
During your session, I try to focus more on moments than poses. I might have you and your love take a stroll down a path, dance in a field, or just sit, chat, and kiss. A lot of couples find their session was more like a date than the classic sore cheeks after leaving a studio because you have forced a smile for so long. I like to capture you in the moment; whether that be playing with your kids, your face seeing your bride all dolled up for the first time, kissing your new baby, the love in your eyes... that's where I focus.
Journey & Experience
I am a photographer based out of Okotoks, Alberta... which is close to Calgary in case you aren't familiar. I love that my business takes me all over Canada and beyond. I specialize in engagement and wedding photography, but I enjoy all areas.
I got my first camera at the age of 6 and was through my first 3 roles of film much faster than my parents hoped. Thank goodness for digital cameras coming around...
The majority of my photography background was trial and error, experimenting and experiencing. Through that, some classes and mentoring, I have gained a foundation of knowledge and experience for professional photography.
Through the Summer and Fall, my weekends are kept busy with wedding photography. In between, I enjoy photographing families, couples, maternity and newborns, portraits, sports, and more. I love capturing new ideas, so don't hesitate to contact me for any of your photography needs.
My Passion For Photography
I believe photography should be enjoyable for both the people in front of the camera and the one behind. I love what I do, and I hope you enjoy every minute, too.
I love being a photographer because I love capturing both the beauty in front of us, and in the things that tend to go unseen. Being a photographer allows me to capture and preserves memories and emotions. It allows me to be an artist, a journalist, and a storyteller.
My favorite thing to photograph is you with the people you love or doing what you love. There's a special authenticity in these moments.
Other Things I Love
Being Adventurous - Camping, hiking, rock climbing, skiing... you name it. I love to stay active and be outside, especially in the mountains. Travelling and weekends away are my guilty pleasure.
