Long before I was a photographer, I was a Social Worker and earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Calgary in 2004. I have worked in very demanding fields like Alberta Children’s Services where I wore several hats from Investigator to Case Manager to Family Enhancement Worker to Kinship Care Worker. Next, I moved into a position with Alberta Health Services with high needs psychiatric patients where my job was to place these patients in facilities that would meet their needs, but in Alberta, we are short of these facilities creating a high stress and very urgent environment. These positions taught me the virtue of patience, honesty and caring when dealing with tough and stressful situations; though nothing prepared me for Motherhood when I brought home three screaming infants to a very confused 2.5-year-old. I had to learn to adapt to difficult and stressful situations, emotions and moments that I never thought I would have to – but somehow we managed and had thrived in our little community and everyone is growing, happy and healthy. I have worked with hundreds of people over the past (almost) 8 years of business and I can tell you that most kids and adults are really easy to photograph, regardless if it is the adult who just isn’t interested or the child/children that are exhausted and sad about being dragged out to do pictures. I don’t let that worry me when I am working – I just go with the flow, and if it is a bust, we can always try again later. There is never a point to making a situation worse by demanding that it is done and will be perfect NO MATTER WHAT. It is a terrible way to proceed with a session and usually, if we just wait a little bit and introduce something fun into the equation then everyone comes around. I allow 1-1.5 hours for each photography session so there is no rush – though I do shoot fast and can be done in as little as 25 minutes if necessary.
I am a mother of three children and a very busy movie set and wedding photographer with my husband Andy. All the documentary experience I have received in my profession, and my great love for our two daughters and son, drives me to capture emotion, memory and moments for our clients. If you are looking to capture and hold onto the fleeting stage of your family life RIGHT NOW, I'm your gal. I photograph in your home, outdoors, somewhere fun, or anywhere you can share meaningful experiences together. We do more than take your family portraits. We capture the love laughter and craziness that you call your own. I only take 10 family lifestyle commissions a year and also offer travel services if you are located outside of the Okanagan. Contact me through my website for more information.
Before becoming a family and lifestyle portrait photographer, I was a parenting scientist. I got a PhD, analyzing thousands of mothers playing with their babies and I learned to notice tiny changes in facial expressions, small movements, and family dynamics. These are important to my photography today. I now live on an acreage near Kingston, with my husband, three children, and a menagerie of animals. My days are spent with the crow of roosters out the window, while I drink ALL the coffee and spread the joy of loving your life, loving your real self, and being forgiving of yourself as a parent.
Ever since I was a teenager, I have always enjoyed taking pictures with the camera my dad passed onto me, capturing the things, people and places around me. In 2007, I decided to turn this passion of mine into my career. Since then I have been shooting weddings, engagements, special events, family, kids and babies. I love telling stories with my camera, and my pictures demonstrated my characteristic style and unique perspective, simple yet elegant. I take great pride to apply my skills and talent to document the important and precious moments of life of my clients into lasting fine art pictures. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to capture these memories for my clients so they can cherish a lifetime.
The power of photography and that tangible element is real and is meaningful. It’s the visual documentation that provides proof we were here. We experience life, love, receive love, accomplish great feats, endure, and are a part of history within our family and communities. After that experience, I immersed myself in photojournalism. I studied, job shadowed, worked my butt off telling the stories of people who I was lucky enough to get an inside look of their lives. I’ve focused the photojournalism experience from all the assignments I’ve covered into telling stories of the people who won’t have their images highlighted inside a newspaper or magazine. This is why I do what I do. It’s also why my home has images hanging from every wall to highlight who my daughters were growing up, and who they are now. I want to always remember the 20th anniversary trip with my wife, and see myself and my girls acting goofy together. These moments are fleeting and the memories quickly fade without the images to remind us. Through portraits and weddings, I’ve devoted a big part of my life to telling stories with my images. And I take that responsibility very seriously. Because I want you to have that tangible element that will tell your story to your children, and grandchildren, and their children. I want a family member to walk down a hallway decades from now and point to a picture and ask about that moment captured in time.
I am the Jucelino, Christian, cheerful, and teller of beautiful stories. I am 24 years old, where 4 of those years dedicated to photography, mainly family. Photography came to my life by accident, in a way that was unintentional, and was then a way and a desire without return, I fell in love with this wonderful art, and portrait the life of many families through my eyes and my photography. A lover of family photography! Photography is everywhere, all the time and hourly. I believe very much in her power to keep our stories. These stories can never be forgotten. It is for these and other reasons that I am a photographer, I have this mission to tell and keep the family history!
Born in Teresópolis, a mountain town in the State of Rio de Janeiro, I grew up surrounded by an incredible family and inspiring wolves From an early age I got used to admiring the beautiful and the arts as ways of seeing reality. Graduated in Law, I exercise until today the profession with passion and dedication, qualities that I transpose to all the domains of my personal and professional life. The photograph arose from the need to record my wandering around the world and the people who make my universe more beautiful and happy. Then, I began to study photography technique with a keen eye, in order to eternalize everything that poetically my eyes and lenses can capture. However, no teacher or book is able to teach us to open the soul of the photographed, which is only possible if he generously wants to share his inner world and his experiences.
