What do you enjoy most about photography?

What do you enjoy most about photography?

What I currently enjoy most about photography is taking photos of families and showing them who they really are.  My biggest hope is that they look at their photos and say, wow…our life really is beautiful and amazing!

Who is someone who has inspired you in your business?

My first photographer crush (from back in my University days) and someone who has and continues to inspire me is Sally Mann.   She has inspired me to shoot what I love and in locations that you feel connected to, which is for me is photographing my children at our cabin.  I love how she doesn’t turn away from the messy and queasy parts of childhood as these are often my personal favorite shots.

And if you weren’t doing photography right now, what else would you want to be doing?

If I wasn’t doing photography right now I would be playing more tennis, being the best mom I can be while my kids are still young-ish and dreaming up ways our family can pack up and move away for a year for our next adventure.

2015-05-28_015I’m Bee (short for Rebecca).  I am happiest barefoot, in the sunshine, at my cabin in Vancouver, BC, with a really good beer in one hand and my scruffy husband in the other. I love being surrounded by my 3 crazy kids and OCD dog. I am inspired by love and laughter and real life moments and truly believe that when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing.
