Even as a little girl I was drawn to images and photographs, particularly historical photographs of family members. I relived stories over and over again as I flipped through photo albums, and carried a camera with me wherever I went.
I like looking at pretty things – maybe it’s the Libra in me. I’m a makeup artist by trade, with 18 years in the industry, and with makeup it’s all about enhancing their natural beauty.
I began exploring photography more seriously after my first daughter, Laila, was born. I bought a Rebel XSI and starting shooting. On automatic. At some point I decided that I had to go manual and hooked up with a local Victoria based photographer and learned a ton from her. Then I got my hands dirty – I read, played with the camera, experimented with lighting, colours, poses. The learning curve was steep, and is daily, and I love every minute of it. Through the experimentation I realized that my passion was photographing people – letting moments stand still and creating memories.
As a local, Victoria based photographer, I offer maternity, family, newborn, and child photography. My preference is to work with natural light and there are so many amazing outdoor locations in and around Victoria BC to use as a backdrop!
“Huge recommendations to Jodi! We had never done anything like this before and I was extremely nervous but Jodi was professional, full of direction and very fun to work with. I was able to relax as soon as we got started and have some fun. Thank you so much Jodi-family shots next!”
