Born and raised in Souris, PEI, I have always had an interest in creating. From a young age, that artistic side of me was expressed mostly through music. Over the last few years, that has evolved and I have learned to appreciate the art of photography and the ability it gives me to be creative in a new way. You see, a few years ago I married a wedding guru in Italy. I’ve lived and breathed weddings for the last 6 years. In that time, I have grown to appreciate, observe and master the ins and outs of this monumental day. Being able to document a wedding from the perspective of the story teller is the ultimate expression of creativity to me.
The great Ansel Adams once said “You don’t make photography just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography, all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”. I’ve always loved that my last name translates to “the life”; because my approach to photography in all aspects, is to allow my life experiences to interpret the moment as it happens through my lens. To me, simply put, photography really is, life in pictures.
