Express Yourself

Are you missing a current photo of yourself? That you really like and is true to you?

Or you may be looking for photographs of your portfolio that bring in your spark. There have been times when it would have helped you to promote yourself with professional photos of your work. Possibly you need both a good photo of yourself and your portfolio.

You’ve been busy and photos haven’t been a priority. Or, photos in the past haven’t turned out the way you thought they would.

One of the biggest reasons why you’ve been disappointed isn’t because something wasn’t right on the outside such as: having a bad hair day or the location didn’t seem right. It’s more about the inner – how you are feeling and being able to go into your inner creative place during the session – in order for you to be able to express yourself.

I can help you with new photos that bring out your inner and love for your work. This session is collaberative, creative and gentle allowing you and your work to easily show up and shine.

This session invites you to go in:

  • Through remembering and sharing why you’re an artist.
  • Easy encouragement from me to stay in your inner place.

A few years ago I documented and participated in a music project called “Stories From A Pair Of Shoes.” The stories were contributed by people coming together to share their families’ journey to immigrate to Canada over generations. The stories were recorded for musicians to bring them into song. Below are photos from the project. Well-known musician and former Calgary Poet Laureate, Kris DeMeanour, plays a song he wrote for “Stories From A Pair Of Shoes.”

Recently, Bev Severn, a potter on Denman Island brought together the goddess pieces she’s sculpted and created over many years for a show called “Goddesses.” I photographed the show for her.

How Does It Work?

You’ll contact me. We’ll meet for a free consultation to get to know each other. We’ll chat about why you want photos done, what you’re going to be doing during the session and what I’m going to be doing. You’ll be sharing, I’ll be listening and taking notes. Then, you’ll decide if you would like to book a session.

After you’ve booked the session we’ll go through the contract, session fee and photo pricing. There are separate prices for prints or digital images. A deposit of $100 is required when you book. Please see example pricing below. The consultation is 45 minutes.

The photo session will be done at your preferred location and the time length depends on your requirements.

A week later I’ll present the final images to you and you’ll choose the photos you want. If you’ve ordered prints they will be sent or delivered to you. I specialize in high quality black and white prints. If you’ve ordered digital photos they will be sent to you on-line. The delivery of photos may vary from a few days to a week depending on what you’ve ordered.
