IMG_2645 I have always delighted in taking note of the details around me and paying attention to moments as they unfold, but it wasn’t until I fortuitously landed a photo-journalist position on the East Coast that I discovered how rewarding it is to capture a story with a camera and turn it into timeless art. As those around me started enjoying and commenting on the photos I posted weekly, I was soon asked to photograph a wedding, an engagement, then a family portrait, and another. Over the period of the next few years, I was privileged to work with the talented Michael Rosengard of North Island Photography in New York, and my passion quickly grew for this craft called photography – writing with light! I now reside in the beautiful Fraser Valley in British Columbia, Canada, and am actively exploring the rest of the world with my camera in hand as often as I can. Currently I am inspired and challenged to keep learning and growing as an artist through participating in the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club (APAC) and I am eager to create images of you and the ones you love! ~ Lisa

Photography Session & Investment

There is great value in spending time with people during a photo shoot and not rushing the process; making sure you feel as comfortable as possible is a vital element in the process of artistically portraying who you are. Using a coached candid technique I patiently wait for moments to naturally unfold, and also guide you into the positions and poses that will translate into an attractive image. I work mostly with natural light either outside or inside the homes of those I am photographing, and am always willing to travel to far-off places to document part of your story! In a pre-session consultation, I like to gain an understanding of what you are hoping for in your photographs and discuss details like wardrobe selection and location. With me as your photographer, you’ll experience an easygoing, enjoyable photo session while I work tirelessly behind the camera to capture the stories of “your one wild and precious life.”

Photography sessions start at $250 and include:

  • my time, creative vision and experience
  • a consult regarding location and wardrobe if desired
  • at least an hour of shooting
  • social media files of the artist proofs (watermarked)
  • a password protected image gallery to show your friends and family
