Natural Family Portraits in Victoria, BC
Great photographs make me smile. I love to look at old albums and tell my kids stories about them. My boys are only 5 and 8 years old, but they listen in awe and love to ask me a million questions. I can't imagine not having beautiful family photos to share with them.
Let me help you capture what makes you and your family unique, the smiles, the laughter, the relationships, the personalities. Your choice of location, or I'll suggest some of my favourite spots. My goal is natural, relaxed photos of you and your family... Bring a smile and I'll take care of the rest!
Fine Art Silhouettes of Your Family
Do you want something a little less traditional for your photo shoot?
My specialty is combining my love for fine art with your portrait session to create unique, artsy images of you and your family.
I love creating silhouettes using the gorgeous scenery we have here in British Columbia. With you or your family as the subject matter, almost anything you can dream up can be created. (I've just returned home to Canada after living in Spain for the last 7 years! So, that's why a lot of the photos on my website don't look like BC!)
This is not your average studio session!
I offer relaxed sessions, normally outside at the location of your choice. My style is very different than traditional studio portraits. We take our time and let your kids play and interact with you while I capture candid photos. I never ask you to maintain a specific pose for more than a few seconds. I'll help you sit together in a comfortable manner and then you can just be yourselves and leave the rest up to me.
Before the day of your shoot, tell me which style of images you want (Natural Portraits, or Personalized Fine Art or both) and I can give you suggestions on what to wear and locations.

Are you on vacation?
Would you like some nice photos of your family on vacation?
I can suggest some great places for photos on Vancouver Island and especially in the Victoria area if this is your first time visiting here. Tell me where you're staying and I'll make suggestions nearby!
UPDATE: Sorry, I'm no longer accepting family sessions in Spain. I'm back in Canada as of July 2019.
