Hey hey hey!
First off, I'm super honoured you'd take the time to meet me here in my little corner of the creative web-world.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME -
I'm a suburb-born gal living in Vancouver, British Columbia. My working time is split between ER nursing and photography, but a part of me comes alive when you trust me with your moments, big and small. I love the challenge of entering in, putting you at ease, and thinking creatively on the fly!
SOME FAST FACTS -
I got my nose pierced on a whim for $11 in Vietnam after years of debating if I should or not. No ragrets.
I'm an Enneagram 7 straight through to my core, and I unashamedly wept when I first listened to Sleeping at Last's song "Seven."
I do love a good British time period drama.
I would strongly define myself as a "destination hiker." ......I hike for the view and the snacks at the top. My lungs hurt all the way up and there's no way around it. If you'd like to hike with me, I'll absolutely go for it, just...don't expect much quality conversation until the top...
I do love a top notch flat white, but I have been known to drink the instant stuff mid night shift, and I don't mind one bit. No time for true coffee snobbery where shift work is involved.
Yes to eggnog, and decorating before December first.
My book list grows faster than I can knock them off, and it's quite frustrating. But we truck on.
IF YOU KNOW ME -
...you'll know a few things, in no particular order!
1. I love people. They are the most fascinating creations, and worth every bit of time and effort to get to know. I think that is why I will always be drawn to portraiture in photography first and foremost. There will always be so much beauty to capture in the essence of who each subject is in front of me.
2. I love my Saviour, Lord and ever kind Father Jesus Christ, in whom I have life and breath and all fullness of joy. I see photo-capturing as a way to honour the stunning beauty he has first and foremost taken such time and detail to create around me.
3. I love life. Whether it be capturing moments behind the lens, getting up too early to sit beneath yet another pastel sky as the sun rises, or underwater strapped to an oxygen tank freaking out at the ridiculous detail under the surface, life is rich, and I'm here for it.
AS YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL -
I love to capture it all!
I am drawn to the in between moments, the goofy grins, the second when you forgot for a moment I was even there. But hear this. As we get to know one another, it is most important to me that you feel so unbelievably cherished and comfortable behind my lens, because learning and knowing who you are brings me so much life as I seek to truly represent you in the images captured!
Basically, let's be friends! Life is a gloriously unexpected and ever-changing dynamic thing, and so worth capturing together.
I can't wait to meet you...
