I want to share some words from a post I made on Instagram recently, about my philosophy on boudoir photography and intimate portraits, so I apologize if you're reading this twice.Read More
I had a client recently say to me in an email, "sorry for all the hand-holding" regarding outfit choice consultation. It was an interesting comment because I think as women, we are taught to apologize a lot when asking for our needs or requests to be met....Read More
I have been meaning to blog this engagement session for some time now. As my couples know, I like to go on a little adventure for engagement photos - often venturing out to a sweet spot I've scouted weeks beforehand.Read More
I don't know what else to say? This boudoir session was seriously amazing. Not only is this woman totally freaking stunning, like the traffic-stopping kind, but she's also got a heart of gold. I mean, everyone does in their own special way, but this woman was not afraid to show it...Read More
Oh blogging, how I sit and overthink each and every blog post. See, it's only because I care about those who read the blogs. I know that you're probably reading this because you're thinking about doing a boudoir session, and I'm wondering what it is you'd like to know about a session....Read More
A boudoir session is for every woman - and it really amazes me the diversity I see in my clients in their ages, shapes, sizes, personalities, careers, values, etc. - there is no "mold" or "typical" woman who books a session. That's what I love, it's about the feminine spirit. And the feminine spirit isn't something you can trivialize through definition - it's poetic, it's a story - and it can't be reduced to categories.
I thought I'd pop in here to say hey to everyone, it has been a while and because I'm really shy sometimes I don't post.
So, let me give you a bit of an update...
A personal share moment...
Information travels, information travels faster, and in the age of sharing and social media, this is just part of our daily routine. It's not something we even think about, sharing our information.Read More
I wanted to post a little bit about Simone & David, who stole my heart. These two are just the kindest, most gracious people. Getting to photograph their wedding was a little look into their world, which I hope that I get to see more of as they build a life together and grow their union...Read More
While not a boudoir session, this beautiful woman messaged me because she wanted to commemorate a milestone birthday, her 30th, with some amazing portraits of herself. She had quite a few ideas which we talked about via email and over the phone, established a creative direction, nailed down a date and went on a mini adventure!Read More
Before you can effectively tell a story through images, you have to understand the story a little bit. This is why I love getting to know my clients, because it helps me to know what mood and vibe they want to create in their photos.Read More
I hear photographers say it a lot so I don't want to overdo it, but Lisa and Andrew are the sweetest couple. They have gentle souls, both of them, a loving sense of humour, and a tenderness with each other. Andrew is a gentleman, they have the kind of love where he would lay his coat over a puddle for her to cross.Read More
As I've mentioned before, I notice that every couple has a unique bond with one another, and together they create an intimacy that is never duplicated. How two people interact and create balance with one another is really special to watch and even more special to photograph....Read More
I love adventurous engagement photography sessions, and clients who trust me enough to let me take them to these locations. Melodi & Jordan live in Toronto, but have lived in BC also and have lots of friends and family here. They wanted their engagement photography session to be special, and wanted something nature-inspired vs the city dwelling of the GTA...Read More
Something a bit different, I've been wanting to share this boudoir session for a while but haven't gotten around to it. As you know, boudoir photos is an incredibly personal thing, and not every client allows me to share their boudoir photoshoot online. This is something so intimate, and I always respect a client's wish for privacy...Read More
As you may have seen in my rambling blog posts, I went to Greece this summer to hang with the fam jam. It had been over 11 years since I'd been back to The Motherland. The trip was for play, rather than work, but when I fount out Kat & Priya,Read More
I'm back from Greece with a a few thousand photos to edit. I'll do my best to post them, I'm getting better at posting I promise.
Ali texted me before this engagement session and said, "Hey Pam, it's Ali from Ali & Shauna!"
Like it's the Ali & Shauna show, and that's fitting, because they're both totally hilarious. The kind of hilarious that makes you a bit annoyed that you'll never be that funny, so naturally there's a ton of laughter when you're with them, and when you're photographing them.
These two were meant for one another - so when they approached me to shoot their wedding, I was *thrilled*
They are in love, like so in love.
They accept each other completely. So often we see couples that try to change each other. These two just don't. Every moment with one another is appreciated.
I like to be super organized so that I give all the couples I work with a super personal, but consistent experience. I believe strongly in the power of systems, and having been an assistant regional manager for a fortune 500 company at one point in my life, I realized early on in the power of systems to create and execute a personal, but awesome experience for clients....Read More
