You could say that I’m passionate about photography. I love learning, growing and pushing myself creatively (and technically). While I’m not in business, I have been coordinating and teaching a local photography club for moms for the past year . It has been such an honour to come alongside so many women and help them get better photos of their family. At the beginning of this year I wrote out several photo projects to help challenge me and encourage growth. My first challenge is to spend some time (aprox 3-4 hours) with a family, photographing them in their home, their everyday life. I love taking photos in own home, however I want to explore natural light in another space, seek out creative composition in new ways, etc. Here is where you come in!
I’m looking for a family that would love to have me come spend some time with them so that I can photograph their everyday little moments. This is the style of photography that I love and makes my heart sing! This is not your normal, let’s go to the park and take family photos, kind of photo session. However, I will be sure to get some fun family shots in your home.
Here’s an idea of what the photo session could look like…
It’s a Saturday morning and I come to your home while you are all still in pyjamas (yes, you too mom). You all casually get ready for the day and have pancakes for breakfast. The kids play for a little while with their favourite toys. As family, you may want to play a game together, bake cookies, go for a walk at a local trail, go on a little outing to your favourite shop, play in the backyard, etc. Whatever you do as a family is special and beautiful. That’s what I want to photograph.
The idea is that I want to capture regular life (hopefully a little more beautifully than you may see it). Photos of your family together; not just pics of the kids, but of mom with the kids, mom and dad together, etc. The kids playing in their rooms, et. Consider me the fly on the wall, capturing life as I see it. I will give some direction and tips, however I want this to be more of a truly lifestyle photo shoot. This is not meant to be for a special occasion (birth of a baby, birthday party, engagement, etc). These photos celebrate normal, everyday REAL life. **You must live in the BC Lower Mainland area (between Chilliwack and Vancouver).
*If you’re into photography yourself, I would love to be able to chat with you about how I see your home, the light, etc as well.
