A Child's Nature
Being witness to a child's authentic nature is a beautiful experience that provides so much laughter and gratitude. I am drawn to children's portraiture because my subjects come just as they are, expressing genuine emotion, curiousity and interest, and when in the camera frame with their family, a heartfelt display of what it means to be cared for.
In a world where we can have anything on impulse, taking a step back and considering what is meaningful and valued has become a way of life for me. Giving my children room to explore, reading them books, spending time with them in nature and sharing with them my love of travel are goals for their time spent with me. I prefer to photograph my client families interacting with each other rather than sitting unnaturally posed because they, like myself, want to preserve sharing time together enjoying life's simple and meaningful experiences.
In support of education for some of our world's most vulnerable children, I am currently involved with The School Sessions, an international photography-lead fundraiser to raise donations to rebuild the ECCA School in Haiti.
I am always eager to pursue philanthropic endeavours by donating my time and skills to organizations that assist with the well-being, health and education of Calgary's children. Please contact me to discuss how I may be of support.
