This last year has brought so much change for me and my family, this time last year I was holding my new baby girl and getting ready to move my family to western Canada. Moving half way across the country (and having two children!) has changed my life forever. The one thing I continue to hold dear are the photos that I revisit and share with my (very conscious) 2 1/2 year old. My recent experiences have led me to change my focus in photography as I attempt to re-open my business here in Alberta. I have decided to leave commercial and product photography behind to venture into wedding and family lifestyle photography. I want to help people capture those moments that can be cherished for a lifetime, your wedding, the birth of your children, playing at the park etc. I am grateful that I can relive my personal moments through photography and I would like capture similar moments for others (I’ll write about this new vision later). The first step in making such a change was to start learning and, after much searching, I found Julie Williams. Julie’s work was inspiring, just what I was looking for, so I contacted her and we set a date for a mentoring day together. It was a perfect day filled with lots of chatting, shooting and the start of a new friendship. Thank you Julie for such a wonderful day and, I hope, many more  I’ve attached some pictures from my day with Julie.

its been quite some time since i have posted “about me” type of information online so I decided to share a blog post about myself…. What to say?

I have three passions in life – my family, photography and living a healthy lifestyle.

Being a photographer I thought that the best way to share  a little bit about myself was to show you with a few pictures. Without going all the way back to childhood i wanted to share a few of the major events that have helped to shape the person that I am today. I’m an “east coaster” who ended up marrying another east coster from across the bay. Believe it or not we actually began dating while living in Ontario (funny how this world can sometimes be so small). We were married in 2008 and contiuned living in Ontario where we welcomed our first child (Deaglan) in October 2010 and our daughter (Fianna) July 2012. Shortly afterwards we packed up our entire life and headed west to Calgary (Oct 2012).
