I have thought about photographing my parents ever since I went back to school to become a professional photographer. I know I have the skills and ability now to make quality photographs.
When my husband and I were on a 3-week canoe trip in Quetico Provincial Park, they agreed to look after our dog, Banjo. In exchange for babysitting our dog, I wanted to offer them my services. An hour photo shoot on location with an assistant isn’t an easy task along with thousands of dollars worth of photography gear, which meant that I couldn’t just do it for free. My parents are super supportive of my new career path know how incredibly important it is to create value for photography services so they expected to pay me for a full session. I was happy to trade because I know looking after Banjo wouldn’t have been an easy task.
I’m so pleased with how they turned out and I know I will always have these beautiful images of my parents forever.
