A Bit About Me

Hi!

I'm Dee and I'm a portrait and lifestyle photographer based just outside of Exeter.
I'm also born and raised in Canada, which means I'm genetically bred to be nice, friendly  and naturally prone to over-apologizing. 
I am also a wife and mum to my 6 and 10 year old.

My career started out as a Musician, actor and Drama Practitioner, however, with the arrival of my first son, I wanted something that was flexible but still allowed me to nurish my need to create emotive artwork.  I soon discovered that with my photography, I could keep my passion for theatre and story telling and apply it to the images I create with my clients.   8 years ago, I opened my own business and haven't looked back.

I grew up on the lakes of Northern Ontario, a place of dramatic scenery, blazing red sunsets and dazzling northern lights. 
My artistic style is bred from this and  tends to be rich  in colour although,  at time I like to allow the natural drama of the story  shine through a black and white image.    I always strive for intensity in my work.





 

I know that not everyone enjoys having their photo taken and there will always be one family member at the session under duress!  I strive for each of my sessions to be as fun and as natural as possible using locations where families feel the most comfortable and relaxed.   This can be a park or beach that is special to you or even your own home.  If you can't decide I can suggest places for you.
 

Laughter is the most important thing and is included free with every session! 

I'd love to meet and get to know you and your family, so if you think I might be the right fit for you, please contact me and we're arrange a session!
