Adopting A New Philosophy

I have been thinking more and more about what it means to be a soul living and experiencing everything that this world has to offer (both the positive and the negative), and the more I contemplate this, the more I feel connected to everyone and everything.

There’s a certain joy that comes from this knowledge and a feeling of peace. I feel that we’re all individual drops of the same ocean, separate in a way but inexplicably tied to each other. I could go on for days about this.. but this is not what this post is about (unless you’d like me to go on…please post your thoughts in the comment section below!).

It’s about love, a love for people, for human experiences and how I want to impact the lives of those around me in a positive way. Whenever we read stories about people doing random acts of kindness or “paying it forward” we can’t help but smile. Being on the receiving end of unexpected random kindness from strangers can change your entire day or week in a beautiful way.

We all have gifts that we can share with each other, gifts that will bring joy happiness to those around us. The gift of music,dance,humour, or art…. & hundreds more I’m sure. The gift that I can share with you is my photography.

I can take your photo. But not just a snapshot. My goal is to capture something more of you in the images I create. Something that goes beyond just your physical presence in front of my camera. If I succeed in that or not…is another story :) (I’m trying!)

So with that said, we’d like to introduce a new type of session. The-Pay-What-You-Can Session. It doesn’t matter who you are or what event/type of session you need photographed, a wedding, a new baby, a celebration of family… money shouldn’t stand in the way of having beautiful images to remember a special event by.

Starting this month, today, we’ll take on 1 Pay-What-You-Can booking per month. This won’t be made public in any way, just fill out our contact form and let us know if this is something that you need. Our prices are posted on the Investment Page and if you love our work and want to hire us but don’t have the funds to… now you can, and just pay us whatever you can.

February 14th is a day to celebrate love, and all the way it manifests in our lives. We want to help you celebrate your love, and hope that by doing this we’ll be able to offer the gift of photography to a special client each month.

Happy Valentines Day!
