Meet Me

I’m a Kamloops photographer, animal-lover, and design aficionado. I photograph ordinary people and their pets, who magically become stunning models in front of my lens. When I’m not spending time with my husband, I am exploring with our dog and my horse, most often trail riding and jumping. I’ve been riding for over 20 years.  You’ll rarely find me sitting still!

Originally, my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Lethbridge was intended to launch me into the world of equine behaviour.  However, I took photography and new media courses as electives, and by the time I graduated in 2008, my interest in photography was insatiable.

After graduating, I spent a year traveling in Australia and New Zealand, taking breathtaking photographs.  I returned home eager to continue my journey with my camera.  Ultimately, the tables turned: I now train horses as a hobby, and photography has become my career.

I officially launched my pet, portrait, and wedding photography business in 2009, and have worked full-time in my business ever since.

I married my handsome husband Chris in 2017, and we now live in the beautiful city of Kamloops. We spend a lot of time doting on our Irish Terrier, trying to replicate HGTV ideas, and as a result, cleaning up drywall dust and dog hair!

I believe everyone should have beautiful photos that illustrate what you’re passionate about — your partner, your family, or your pets.  When you walk by your canvas on the wall or open your coffee table album, you will relive this season of life.
