When you have been around the block a few times, you realize that life does not stand still. Things constantly change and grow, developing, and even decaying. We are constantly transitioning from what we were to what we are becoming.
Transitions Photography is about capturing those moments; those points of transition, whether that be a wedding, or moving from one grade to the next, one school to another, or one job to the next. We capture the transitions of life to preserve the memories of who we were, who we are, and who we are becoming.
The best thing about being a photographer is working with smiling faces!
I love every moment I can be with people smiling and sharing their lives and their stories.
As a full time certified photographer, this is more than just a passion for me. It's what keeps me going, energizes me day by day, and it is what pays the bills. That means that you will only get my best effort no matter what your need is!
Born in the North of Ireland I grew up in Canada - in Guelph, Ontario mostly.
My life has led me to live in many places across our great country - Guelph, Fort Erie, Toronto, Montreal, Prince Rupert and Prince George (BC), Chatham, Fergus, Cambridge and now Elmira. It has been an adventure - which isn't over yet!
My life has been a series of transitions. In fact, I look back and feel like I have lead many lives, having had careers as a Pastor, Warehouse Picker, Network Administrator, Mail sorter and photographer. I also know a little of what it is like to entirely transition my life in other ways; I am trans, non-binary and use the pronouns they/them. I am married 30 years and have four children who have taught me a great deal in life as I have watched them make their own transitions growing up.
I understand and work well with both people and the technology needed to capture great images. I'm also familiar with the stress of getting the job done right, when the moment requires quick action.
I love to capture moments that mean the most in people's lives; moments that come only once in a lifetime and usually at those moments of Transition - from single to married, from school to work, or even from year to year as you grow.
Wherever your life is taking you, whatever your media needs are, I'd love to help you capture it the way you want to show it!
Because LIFE TRANSITIONS - capture these moments forever!
