Children´s Photography - Magical Moments Worth Treasuring

I have to admit, my favorite thing to photograph are my kids. I just love watching them from a distance explore and enjoy their own little world.

My passion is to bring this excitement to your family and create artwork that will hang proudly on your walls for yeras to come. Children are so inquisitive, playful and curious. Allowing them to be themselves rather than asking them to pose is how I aim to capture their true essence. Combined with a creative eye and love for art, I want to wow you with personalized fine art of your children!

Victoria Wedding Photography - A Natural, Artistic approach

You're looking for a professional photographer to capture your day beautifully so that you don't have to worry about asking friends or family to take pictures.

You want to spend your time with your family and friends, many of whom you've probably not seen in a long time. I have a "get in and get out" approach. I know you want those formal group shots, but you don't want to spend half the day taking them.

You also want beautiful couple portraits, but you don't want to leave your guests waiting for hours while you go off to take pictures. I've got the experience to help you (and your guests) pose quickly and naturally so we can get the must-haves done and you can get on with your day! Because what's most important to you is capturing the candid moments and the joy of everyone at the event.

Meet Naomi

I am a wife, mother, photographer and avid traveler, living on Vancouver Island.

If you’re a mom like me, you know that your babies change so quickly and before you know it they’re like tiny adults running around your house!

I am honored to be a photographer, as I believe it comes with great responsibility to capture the details, the emotions and the moments as they unfold, without interrupting them or taking the focus off what is truly important - experiencing the actual moment. Photos preserve the memories but what good is it if you missed the experience because you were too busy getting your photo taken!

My philosophy

I’ll never forget what one of my professors said about the difference between a painter and a photographer:

“A painter adds; a photographer subtracts.” We sat there looking a bit confused, then he explained.

"A painter starts with a blank canvas and must keep adding until the piece is finished. But, as photographers we are presented with chaos; a 360 degree view of infinite possibilities. Our job is to subtract until there is meaning in what is left. After all, it is easy to fill up a photograph... just click the shutter and you will see. It is much harder to simplify one."

I am reminded by this philosophy every time I shoot. I strive to go for the pure essence of the moment and nothing more, to capture the feelings amongst the clutter of life.

Timeless. Beautiful. Authentic.
