Piper Marie

Ya’ll should play this song, cuz it’s beautiful. Moving on now 🙂

I don’t know anything in life that makes me feel so alive as photography. It’s not about the camera or the lens. I am not a technology person, at all, just ask Michael. *insert face-palm here* I am a sensitive person, and even more importantly, a people person.

Pho·tog·ra·phy: The art of capturing moments, cultivating life and seeing into another’s story.

I went through a chapter of seeing less with an open mind and heart. I became quite guarded and gave less grace. I also went to therapy to work through the chapters that created said walls. It’s a process, but I have grown to be more like the girl who looks at people through grace-filled-glasses. I look less through my black-and-white view, and I really try to see them and create moments that make life slow down. I try and live less through emotional heights, and more through empathetic-eyes. It’s a beautiful way to live.

Perhaps that is my favourite part of photography. My goal is to create moments that are full of life, authentic and raw. To bring people together, and live out their story. I have learned that we are all worthy of love, and everyone should be able to celebrate life through pictures to carry with them forever. At times it may feel uncomfortable, but I think it’s wonderful that we can learn about ourselves just through a simple photoshoot.

I am so excited to spend my life capturing moments, cultivating life and seeing into another’s story. I am grateful for the people I get to meet along the way, and the adventures we go on.

For now, I’ll leave you with this beautiful lady, and the final chapter of what has been most of her life. Piper has finished high school, and is moving onto bigger and better things. She is leaving one chapter behind, and opening the next. What an emotional time; full of change and empowering moments.

Her Mama had to be out of town for work, but we were able to sneak a few shots in her with Viking Dad, and her boyfriend. This woman is a babe, let me tell you.

I am so excited for the life you will live girl. I can’t wait to hear about the lessons you will learn, the growing and the exploring you’ll do. Live this life, embrace seeing it through a hundred colours, and make every step count.

-Xo
