For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to the creative arts – movies, music, fashion, graphic design, arts and crafts. In kindergarten, my teacher noted my attention to detail in my first ever report card, and in high school, my favourite classes were Art and Concert Band (yea band geeks!). My formal education is in psychology and information technology and eventually I worked as a web designer. I realize now that it was during this time, while I was laying out websites and creating graphics that I taught myself about composition, colour, and evoking emotion. Fast forward a few years and you’ll find me with my camera, obsessing over natural light and capturing those day-to-day moments most people would pass over as mundane. Small things like my husband playing chess with my oldest son or my littlest playing quietly by himself in a corner of our messy living room. But years from now, I believe that these simple, every day moments are the ones that you’ll want to remember and look back on in a photograph.
