As we close yet another year and begin a new one, I’m beyond grateful to delve into my 12th year in photography! I’m not going to sugar coat it, there’s been many ups and downs in my journey but one thing is for sure is that I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to.
My photography journey started back in 2009 when my boyfriend at the time handed me my first DSLR camera and I literally became OBSSESED. In my earlier years I captured many landscapes, friends, families and weddings and had a “travelling studio” where I would set-up in my client’s homes. This was a lot of fun and challenging all at the same time.
In 2014 we moved to a beautiful lake house in Greely and opened my first studio! This was the perfect location to learn and grow my niche as a newborn and family photographer. Unfortunately, in 2017 a separation forced us to sell our home and I was again faced with the challenge of either going back to the Government or pursuing my passion as a Photographer.
Well it didn’t take long for me to figure out where I belonged. In 2020 I opened my second studio in my new home located in Vars, ON. I know this might sound cliché but I met the man of my dreams and he 100% sees and supports my dreams. He is literally the best partner, plan executer, prop maker, grounds keeper in the world! If you’ve been to the studio this year you would have noticed the newly planted trees (50 to be exact), custom barn doors, hot chocolate stand, fire pit area, deck, gazebo all designed and executed by him.
What’s coming for 2022? Our vision for the studio is still not complete (haha). This year we will expand the studio space to a new location on the property. I don’t want to reveal all the goodies now but make sure to follow along on our FB/IG pages to see the development of our new project. Eekkkk soo excited and can’t wait to share with you all!!!!
THANK YOU for your continued support for my small business as I enter my 12th year in this industry. Without you I wouldn’t be here.
Here’s to the next 12 years of capturing your memories! Christine XO
