I really am a hopeless romantic at heart... that loves a good adventure & locally crafted cider
After years of exploring different types of photography..... it always comes back to the real authentic love stories. Real couples who aren't afraid to show off who they are and how much they are in love with one another! I'm passionate about getting those raw images of love, laughter & fun. For me I am all about the stories that represent who you are as a couple. Kissing in the rain, playing card games, listening to your favorite records, it is all about you!
I want to be that photographer that GETS IT. That understands that wedding days aren't always perfect.... heck we live in Saskatchewan, it could be a gorgeous summer day with 90km/hour winds, I get that things happen and all I want is for you to relax. Knowing that things aren't always perfect but still being able to embrace those moments and cherish them even when you just want to pull your hair out! I get it because I'm a Mom of 4, a wife to an incredible man and I can tell you, I still see my share of tantrums and days of chaos in our home. We've had our ups and down and in the end, it makes us US and I wouldn't change it for the world.
The moment when couples and families bring me into their lives to document what they cherish, it means the world to me. Documenting your lives, the little moments that you hold dear to your heart....I personally feel so much more whole-hearted to be able to document your love stories to be shared for generations to come.
When it comes to my craft of photography I try and push myself as much as I can, whether its learning new techniques , educating myself, collaborating with other artists, photographing a subject I don't normally photograph, pushing my artistic abilities with landscape photography... really the possibilities are endless. Not only do I photograph couples, weddings and families I push my creative limits in the other half of my photography business known as Whimsical Wonderland. Here I create fantasy like photographic art of children, teens and adults alike! I love exploring my imagination.
In every aspect of my business I strive to be better than I was the day before. I struggled in 2012, almost quitting this career path completely. When I realized that I missed that part of my life, my soul was lost. With the love and support of my family I was able to get back on track and pursue this passion as my career. I feel complete again and it feels amazing! Honestly, to have a career that I am so passionate about makes me over the moon happy - it is really freaking amazing to capture such beautiful humans and say " I shoot people for a living..." well you know what I mean!
So I invite you to connect with me, lets go for a coffee at a local cafe, sit at a pub and drink wine, local cider...craft beer... and chit chat about what is most important to you as a couple or a family. I want to know what you hold dear within your soul.
