Let’s create magic together
Hi! A little about me...
Thank you for stopping by. To tell you a little about myself- I am a Canadian transplant now living in St Petersburg, Florida with my husband and three children. I love to cozy up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee or tea. I love to work out and spend time with my children. I am a natural light fine art photographer. I seek to capture beauty and emotions. I love to take surreal pictures as it satisfies my creative soul. Please take a look around and don't forget to visit me on Instagram and Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you!
What is your gear?
I shoot with a Canon Mark 3. I have a variety of lenses but prefer longer lenses- 85mm and up.
How do you edit your pictures?
I import all my pictures into Lightroom where I make basic adjustments like exposure, white balance etc and then export to Photoshop where I do most of my editing.
Do you offer mentoring?
At this time I do not offer mentoring. It maybe something I do in the future but right now It’s not something I can give my full attention to but thank you for asking though and check out my blog because I am trying to address many of the questions I get asked on Instagram!
How do you add special effects to your pictures like butterflies and sparkles?
I get asked what app I use all the time. I actually add all my special effects in photoshop. I use overlays which are pictures that you overlap on your own picture- you can purchase these from Etsy and many of your favorite photographers. You can even make your own. As for phone apps, I know there are many out there it’s just that I’m unfamiliar with them. I know many people use bokeh cam fx but I’ve never used it so I can’t vouch for it.
How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve been at this for about 5 years! It takes time to get better and we all grow at our own rates.
How do you make your cinemagraphs?
I make some in photoshop and I make some using an app called flixel. Flixel is pricey and since I’ve started doing them I know there are many more apps out there so look around! To make a still picture come alive you can use an app called platograph.
