Welcome to my Elle Photography website and thank you for taking the time to view my work as a natural light and lifestyle photographer. This is culmination of my creative journey through life. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to capture and document special moments for others. Whether it’s a portrait or a spontaneous moment, I want to bring YOUR experiences to life forever as a keepsake . . . through the art of photography. I look forward to creating that with you.
My photographic style is a reflection of my studies in art and design. I am also passionate about details…a particular smile, a look or an unexpected moment. My style is a reflection of my life experiences and the passion I have for love, family, food, travel, and celebrations. Those moments in time during our life that we want to remember forever and have captured in a photograph, framed on a wall, in a book, to look back on and pass on through the generations.
How did I get here? Growing up I was always into art; drawing, drafting and writing. This lead me to study interior design in college. After this I traveled, seeking life experiences. I lived in Japan for three years before settling here in the Vancouver area. My travels led me to work in sales and marketing for the hotel industry and for the past 15 years I have committed myself to offering the highest level of customer service working for luxury hotels and resorts in Vancouver and beyond. But the creative soul in me knew there was more to it than just this.
Becoming a mother gave me the opportunity to renew my passion for expressing myself through creative arts. I have been blessed with 2 beautiful children; a creative, energetic little boy and an adorable baby girl whose personality is showing to us a little more every day. When our son was born I just could not stop taking photos of him! Soon, my husband bought me my first SLR camera and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since the day I picked up that camera I couldn’t get enough of creating, learning then creating again. I took classes, and practiced, practiced, practiced . . .and then practiced some more. Before long, my family, friends, colleagues and strangers were asking me to document the important moments in their lives – from brides to bellies to babies! I was in heaven.
Elle Photography was born.
With my camera in hand, my creative journey has finally come full circle. Bliss! And now I look forward to this lifelong study of photography.
