Hey, lovely ladies!
Perhaps you've recently been proposed to by that amazing guy in your life, and you said yes! Or maybe it's just you and your furry baby that you can snuggle with all day, any day. Or, you've gotten married and started that family you've always dreamed of!
And now? All you need is a girl with a camera to document these special, sweet moments, so you can hold them close to your heart and share them with your loved ones.
Thing is, a photo shoot is more than just giving you a new Facebook profile picture (though you'll love to showcase it there, too!) but to show you the beauty of all that you do as a girl. From the late nights tending to your little one's bad dreams, the seemingly-endless changing of diapers, the long walks in the cold rain with your fur baby... and also the good moments! The moments of walking into the safety of your loved one's arms, the way your fur baby's tail wags as you walk in the door, the dimpled smile on your baby's cheeks.
All of those things make you, you! Years from now, when it all seems like a sepia-tinged ancient memory, you'll be able to look on those moments and remember your unique story.
This is where I come in! My name is Dorota, and I'm based in the Cowichan Valley and also serve Victoria and, on occasion, the Saanich Peninsula. In your busy lives, I capture you and your loved one(s) in a special hour where you can have fun, play, and make special memories to look back on.
My shooting style
One time I asked my clients to sum up my photography style, and they said: colourful, soft, and kind.
I think they nailed it.
In a documentary-style way, I seek out natural and authentic moments where you are at play. I know that it can feel a little awkward with my camera pointing at you, so I will give you some direction and prompts. Think tickles, snuggles, big bear hugs and games! These will help you forget the camera, tune into the present moment, and focus on each other.
Of course, if you want posed images, I can add some of those to the mix, too. Sometimes you just need those formal-type photos for those holiday cards!
What people are saying
Dorota is professional, creative and fun to work with. We are so pleased with our family photos and also her photography for our business. They capture who we are and what we want to say perfectly. We highly recommend Dorota Lockyer Photography!
