My sister gave me a Canon rangefinder camera for my 16th birthday. It was a bit of a surprise, because I had never really shown any interest in photography before then. (I think she got a great sale price where she worked. ☺) And oh, how that gift changed my life! I started to take photos and get some great feedback. I realized I had a bit of a photographic eye, and I was hooked. I considered a career as a photographer… And then life took some turns. I fell in love, got married, had babies, went to university, got jobs, built a couple of businesses. You know how it goes. So photography became a hobby and a way to archive family history. And then, my hobby turned into a profession. I took the Photography Certificate training at SAIT
and one of my instructors said, “You should make some money with your photography!” So I believed him, and I hung out my shingle as a professional brand photographer in 2008. Since then I have helped many business clients tell their brand stories in pictures.
