Behind the Camera

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I feel as though I have had a camera in my hands my whole life. My father encouraged me to explore my creativity and instilled in me a deep respect for the arts as a profession. I received my first camera at the tender age of seven, and haven’t looked back since. My love for photography developed steadily over the years, and I started to practice it more seriously in my early 20’s. Three years ago I took the plunge and left the corporate world to pursue my passions. 

My love for people, combined with my love for photography is what drives me. This work offers me a wonderful balance between my technical mind and soft heart. It also allows me the freedom to indulge in my many other interests.

When I am not documenting love, I am living it. I am the proud mother of two beautiful, rambunctious and brilliant little boys. They bring me much insanity and joy! They are the inspiration and motivation for everything I do.

In my free time, I play Scrabble, practice my ukulele, tinker with essential oils, volunteer at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, travel to far off lands and try to think up creative new ways to sneak vegetables into my kid’s food. I have an unnatural and undying love for avocados, cheese, graffiti and parrots. My life is busy and full, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I feel lucky to live and work in Vancouver. The range of scenery and locations that it has to offer is second to none. A quiet beach session on one day, and urban Gastown on the next. I have a weakness for our cherry blossom season and the vibrant colours of fall. I can even get excited about the lovely diffused light our grey days bring.
