...so are we.
But actually, in all seriousness, there's no better time to do this for yourself and re-gift it to your partner.
A boudoir photography session should be for YOURSELF first. Partner second. I'm selfish like that.
...so are we.
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
I've been meaning to blog this mini-session, which I did a while ago and have been sitting on the photos from, but have been too busy to post about. I love the cinematic (surprise, surprise!) look of this session and the dramatic light. I also love its moodiness and sensuality...Read More
It has been a couple of weeks, and I've been on the road, shooting, learning, and doing shit that will make me better at my practise, so my clients can also reap those benefits. I've had quite a bit of good fortune come my way, and I'm heading into a double-header wedding weekend, lots of stuff to do, lots of recent shoots, and a ton of editing (haha) - but I'll update you all on that soon....Read More
So a huge part of my life is travel. Every year, I get to travel.
When I was in my early 20s, I remember being SO broke that travelling was something I just didn't think I'd ever get to experience in my life. Or, maybe I did believe that it would happen to me someday, but I was terrified that it wouldn't because it's something that I dreamed of doing. Who doesn't want to travel?Read More
You know what? Boudoir sessions are a bit uncomfortable.
Let me explain - are they empowering? Yes! Do you walk away feeling like, "WOW!" about yourself? Sure do!
But when you show up, you may have a moment where you're nervous, a bit worried, perhaps doubting yourself, etc.Read More
More than ever in urban areas, we live in a culture where it's possible to construct and create your own reality and environment. That means if our heart desires something perhaps, different, or off-the-beaten-path, or less-traditional, or unique, or authentic, or more a reflection of your individuality and personality, you can make that dream come true.Read More
It was the first really beautiful weekend here in the Vancouver, and it was also a long weekend. When I have the opportunity to operate at a similar pace to the rest of the 9-5 world, I seem to go with that flow.Read More
