Thank you for stopping by. I’m Anita! I am a Commercial Lifestyle Portrait
(oftentimes referred to as headshots)
+ Branding Photographer in Vancouver, BC and I have this thing about making real CONNECTIONS. Think we’ll click?
I am all about the FEELS. I am drawn to photographs that reveal truth. Truth, to me exists in the EMOTIONS an image elicits. Truth is without words, it is not heard. It lives in the in-between. In the pause before the action, in the space before thought, and in the breath before speech. You don’t see it. You FEEL it. Truth isn’t generous. It doesn’t wait for you. The moment is fleeting. To capture it, you need a bit of luck and serendipity, a lot of patience, and a good amount of understanding and genuine sincerity. When you do have it, it’s those emotions that live on. This is undeniable.
It’s an intangible thing. Is it in your eyes, the corners of your mouth, your body language? Perhaps, all of the above. A person feels whatever you are putting out there. The most important part of all of this is, surprise YOU. The person(s) in the photograph is the story here. In each photograph we aim to capture your intentions, your motivations, your dreams and aspirations. The thing you LOVE and LIVE for? That’s all YOU. We want THAT! Once we click, which is usually pretty quick, the energy is contagious. It gives you the space to feel natural, relaxed and comfortable. That’s when I start clicking. By the end of the session, you will be surprised by the ease of it all. You will have fun and will walk away smiling. In return, you get honest, genuine, and engaging photographs.
WHO ARE MY PHOTOGRAPHY CLIENTS?
My clients are healers, listeners, and leaders: from counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, naturopaths, yogis, guides and coaches; to physicians and other STEM professionals doing incredible world changing and life saving work. They are fighters who stand by our side: environmentalists, health and fitness coaches and trainers, to lawyers from family, immigration to constitutional and aboriginal law. They are CEOs, entrepreneurs, educators, finance professionals, marketing and advertising professionals, creatives, organizers, motivators, movers, shakers, introverts, and extroverts.
WHO AM I?
I am a Vancouver based Professional Portrait + Lifestyle Photographer. Working professionally since 2012, photographing professionals from a variety of industries for portraits, commercial branding, and creative and editorial portrait photography. In the past, I have also done an extensive amount of boudoir, family, and seminar/event photography. My focus is on providing superior client care and photography that is impactful and genuine.
By nature I am energetic, intuitive, a little geeky, and full of love. I am a feeler and inspired through CONNECTION. In my work, when that connection exists, the photos get pushed up another level (to that intangible space). There’s an energy and oftentimes, we’ll get swept up in it. You might see an impromptu mini happy dance and hear, “There it is! I love it! I love you…! Sorry, too soon? I get excited sometimes!” That pretty much will sum up your experience.
I’m the one trying to grab that split second when no one else is really noticing. When there is no pretence, just that wordless thing I call truth. I may also be that same person, who allegedly backed into the side of a horse when trying to get that “perfect shot…” but I am unable to confirm or deny any of it.
