A review from Natalie in Kamloops, BC: “Words can not describe how I felt looking at those BEAUTIFUL pictures that you took of us! They brought tears to my eyes. You captured us to a T.”

The great outdoors is my backdrop, and I have curated a list of the best places in Kamloops and area to photograph you.  Sessions are spent walking, laughing, and getting to know each other, with photos taken in between. Both natural poses and candid photos provide a great variety.  You will be amazed at all the beautiful images that result!

FAQ

WHERE CAN I HAVE MY PHOTOS TAKEN?

I will help you choose a location that reflects your personality. That may be your own backyard, a nearby tree-lined park, or a quiet field, forest, lake view. I know all the best spots and have exclusive access to some special ones!

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?

We’ll walk between a few different backdrops within our location to capture you in different scenes. We will utilize elements such as trees, pathways, and bridges to help pose you in interesting ways, and I will capture candids as we go too.

WHERE DO I LOOK? WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?

Most people feel awkward at the beginning of a photo session. Because we will be shooting in a relaxed outdoor space and I will be telling hilarious dad jokes, your nerves will soon melt away! I will guide you where to look and what to do with your hands and body, and you will quickly feel comfortable. You won’t spend much time looking directly at the camera at the beginning, as I get you warmed up to posing and feeling great about yourself. 

WHAT IF MY KIDS WON’T SIT STILL FOR PHOTOS?

This is a common question!  Family sessions with young children are structured as a play session with posed arrangements as attention allows.  I have lots of games to get kids to look at the camera!
