Welcome! I’m very glad you’re here!
I’ve had a camera, in my hand, since I was a little girl. I grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where I still reside with my husband and three incredibly spectacular children. As a child my summers were spent chasing many trains through the Canadian Rocky mountains with my father in the lead and I and my sisters following close behind, all with our little film cameras in hand. My father’s love of photography was passed to me, I have no doubt. As a child, I captured what was important to me…family moments, pets, friends and vacations, storing each film print ever so carefully between the pages of my chosen sticky photo album. At some point during my later teenage years I put down my film camera and picked up a small point and shoot. I didn’t capture much with my point and shoot, just a vacation or two. Eventually, I got married and a few years later I became a mother. It was then that absolutely everything changed. I remember staring at my three month old daughter almost panicking because I had so few images of her. In that moment I was struck by how quickly she was changing. I immediately hired a local photographer who captured beautiful portraits of my new daughter, that tugged at my heartstrings, and for a moment I was content. But my little daughter continued to grow and I felt like it was all happening way too fast. I couldn’t slow down time but in one of those “ah ha” moments I realized what I could do is capture and preserve all those beautiful growing everyday moments. I’ll never forget the day my husband brought home a new camera for me…I picked up that camera and it felt so good. I knew I enjoyed photography but I would’ve never guessed, in that moment, the unquenchable passion that would ensue with my first click. A spark ignited inside my soul and I haven’t looked back. Photography became a passion; a passion that not only captured the beautiful everyday moments of my children but a passion that has filled up my own creative soul. In time, I was blessed to become a mom to two more children. Through the years, I’ve photographed the moments and the memories and I am so glad I have. I cherish the memories in every single one of my images.
A few years ago my passion for capturing the everyday moments of my children met a fork in the road within my photography journey. It was here that I discovered landscape photography. I’m a mountain lover. My beautiful mountains fill me up like nothing else can. I’m truly whole when immersed in my mountain ranges. There’s no other feeling in the world for me. It’s indescribable. Euphoric really. The Canadian Rocky mountains, specifically the Kananaskis Range, is where I feel most at home. My love of the mountains fused in a perfect way with my passion for photography and I’ve embraced all that is landscape photography.
I’ve had the pleasure of mentoring and teaching photography for years now and I absolutely love it. I’m thrilled to be able to share my knowledge with you. I know you’re ready to learn. I know you’re ready to grow. I’m here for you and I’m looking forward to helping you capture what you love one click at a time.
