I would think everyone sets out in life trying to figure out a career that will make them passionate. I’d say most people choose reality over dreams. In my case, I’ve hit the jackpot. To say I adore my work is an understatement. Photography is such a satisfying outlet, that it would never be considered work to me. It’s pure passion. There’s nothing I’d rather do. From shooting action sports, families, products, landscapes, and weddings, I’m down with it all.
If an un-pinable style of photography is your cup of tea you came to the right place. After years of agonizing on finding my niche style, or even type of photography I most enjoy shooting, I painstakingly decided to not decide. I adore all facets behind the lens. If there’s a camera in my hand, I’m happy to shoot anything. There’s so much meaning in all of it. The quest to capture delicate moments is very real to me. It truly means the world to me the have the most important memories in life preserved. It also excites me to no end to learn new techniques and explore creativity.
I live.. love.. dream.. this world of photography. I’ve been so fortunate to love what I do.
I wish I could say that my grandfather handed me a camera as a kid and I was nurtured in the way of photography all my life. The reality is my family's idea of photography was snapping a few polaroids here and there at my ballet recital or graduation. Photography started in the mountains for me. In 2003 my boyfriend (now husband) and his best friend, Greg Todds invented a way to ride bindingness on a snowboard, like surfing. They called it Noboard. Tragically the year it was being launched Greg died in an avalanche. It rocked our community to the core, everyone was devastated. As all new ideas, Noboard took a while to be taken seriously in the highly competitive snowboard market. It was a tough sell for even some of Greg’s best friends who worked in the industry. But there was a closeness people felt to Greg whenever you stepped on a Noboard and a group of us began to pursue it whole heartedly. We began to spend everyday in our little snow mecca deep in the Kootenays. Progression was happening everyday. I really wanted it to be documented. So one nieve gal bought a camera and I think maybe two lenses. Magic was made… Just kidding actually trial and error happened and I was fortunate to be surrounded by patient friends that didn’t ever put pressure on me if I screwed up the shot, and i was so lucky to have mentors that happily answered any question i had. It was truly, truly a magical time in our life story. Every day was spent in the mountains going on adventures and being surrounded by creativity and good spirits. People started to notice that Noboard was legit and were curious about this new snow sport. Photos and stories started being requested by magazines around the world. I owe everything to Noboard and it’s community. It started me on this photography adventure. I probably would have never known or had the opportunity to be published otherwise. I’ve been nurtured and encouraged along the way. I feel totally blessed.
