I believe photography makes the world more beautiful.

It has the power to create fairytales, preserve memories and tell stories.


Hi! I'm Naomi... a professional photograher with 14+ years experience, living in Victoria, BC with my husband and our two boys.

I first picked up a film camera in high school in the mid 1990's and loved learning about black and white film and the darkroom.

Despite my early dream of "traveling around the world to take photos" I realized that most of my favourite images are those of my own kids, usually taken in my hometown, because they have special memories attached. You don't have to go anywhere special to create amazing photos of your family because home is special enough, if you know what to look for.

The most prized photographs are created with intention because photography has the power to freeze moments in time.

Yes, there are a few lucky moments, but a true artist carefully chooses exactly what to include in the frame and what to leave out.

My goal is that your photos will take your breath away every time you look at them.

My aspiration is to preserve the moments in your life that can never be recreated.

What to Expect

When you work with me, I’ll make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed. (It's not your job to be a professional model!) We will have fun, and you can totally be yourself. If you need a litle direction because you don't know what to do, I'll offer posing suggestions, or give you something to do so you can focus on a task instead of the camera.

My Style: My style is authentic, timeless and artistic... I like images that are uncluttered and minimalistic. I edit subtly with precise artistic intent, and I give myself very high standards for my work because I know how important it is to the families who will treasure their photos for years to come.
