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

Hi! I'm Naomi... a professional photograher with 10+ 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. All my spare time was spent taking photos and developing prints. Of course, cameras have changed a lot since then, but I've never stopped learning and rarely put my camera down.

Despite wanting to "travel around the world taking 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.

You want to be inspired by what we create, and my goal is that these photos will take your breath away every time you look at them.

What to Expect

I will make sure you get to experience the actual moment and aren't distracted by my camera. When you work with me, you’ll not only feel comfortable and relaxed, you’ll look amazing because that feeling shines through! We will have fun, but you don’t have to act outgoing or energetic if that's not how you feel. (I'm usually pretty calm, down to earth and patient!) I'll just ask you to be yourself, and if you need a litle direction because you're feeling awkward, I'll 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.

My Vision

I believe photography makes the world more beautiful and helps humanity understand each other better. I also believe it brings compassion for nature and the smallest creatures on earth because we get a chance to see things (and places) we don’t normally get to see in person.

My personal mission is:

  • ~ To bring out the beauty in all living things
  • ~ To create experiences worth remembering
  • ~ To bring an appreciation of nature to younger generations
  • ~ To capture the little things in life that might otherwise go unnoticed
