Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 17 years old and got my first 35mm film camera. (ya I know I just dated myself a little) In those days I was mostly photographing landscapes and nature.
I started getting serious about photography about 4 years ago after being laid off from my day job as a Environmental Engineering Technologist. My husband Roy encouraged me to follow my passion of photography...So I went back to SAIT and took my Photography Certificate. While still completing my Certificate I started second shooting weddings for another photographer, often for little or no pay, just for the experience.
I LOVE photographing weddings, they are such a joyous event with so many happy people and pretty details it is my main photography passion. As much as I love the traditional pretty wedding photos, I love capturing people in the moment, laughing, hugging, talking, just being themselves.
I also love photographing families and babies. Capturing that perfect light and that nuance with the baby and parent that has real feeling is my goal. I prefer a lifestyle type photo with some props but all natural light.
I volunteer my photography services for charity [fundraiser] car shows such as "Show your Ride for Brandon" and "Rides for Relief" as I believe in giving back to the community. It's a feel good Karma thing.

I absolutely adore how this community comes together and creates such magic. I love sharing their work with our features...so watch for more to come!!
