My Story

My Story


This photo was taken in the front yard of our old house in Thailand almost one year ago.  We were just ending a fabulous 3 year adventure living on a small island on the other side of the world.  Living in Thailand was a life long dream my husband and I shared, because this was the place where we fell in love and we wanted our children to experience a different way of life at a young age.  We sold our house and everything we owned to pursue this dream and we can't stress enough to all that are reading this... do it!  Life is truly incredible when you get out of your comfort zone.  Left to right... My husband Noam, me, our sons Maayan and Benoit, our amazing nanny Honey and our cat Sasha.

Adventure has always been in my heart


Adventure has always been in my heart


 

My passion in life is to be adventurous.  I love new challenges and experiences.  In the past 20 years I have worked behind the lens as a ski, white-water rafting, rock climbing and even golf photographer (even that was an adventure).  Sometimes I was hired to do ski weddings, or weddings on a golf course.  Which eventually led to an intense love with weddings!  Our Thai island we lived on was also a very popular for destination weddings which I fell right into naturally.  While I loved doing destination weddings in Thailand, this new move to Ottawa has been a huge experience and lovely adventure for us as well.  I am falling in love with the architecture of the city and parks here with a new passion!

3 more things about me...


3 more things about me...


 

 

1.  Weddings are one of the best workouts!  I average 1200 squats with anywhere from 10-30 pounds of camera equipment on me, in one wedding day.  I never even feel it, until the next day of course!

2.  I only own Nikon equipment.  Beautiful moments may be fleeting, having the best photography equipment allows me to catch these moments in any lighting conditions with quality glass lenses and high ISO capabilities of my cameras.  Each image I take has an extremely high resolution and to make stunning large prints or archival albums you need to have equipment like this.

3.  Working fast but with a relaxed style is my thing.  Efficiency is key on a wedding day because there is so much more going on then just the photography.  I may have to go paparazzi style a few times and I may need to pose you a few times but everything photography will be care free.
