My name is Faye and I'm the face behind Oak + Owl Photography. I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer based on Vancouver Island. I believe that life is worth celebrating and there is no better way to do that than capturing the moments that will last forever. I'm about capturing real, intimate, silly in-between moments that truly capture who you are. I don't want the forced poses, I want you to show me your love story so I can show you what everyone else sees.
I know you have a lot of options when it comes to hiring a family photographer, so I very much appreciate you being here! I have my BFA in Visual Fine Arts (SFU 2010) as well as a BEd (SFU 2011). This means I‚Äôm trained in composition, lighting and have worked with thousands of children, teens and adults over my teaching career. I take the stress out of your session planning by helping with wardrobe, timeline planning (don‚Äôt forget about those nap times!), and what to do with your beautiful photos once you get them back after they‚Äôve been expertly edited! During your session I help with how to move in front of the camera, provide prompts for those not as comfortable having their photos done, and get little ones to open up REAL quick. The end result is photos that you will truly love that will last a lifetime (or two)! I love families and children. When I‚Äôm not behind the camera I‚Äôm in front of a classroom - working with children is my passion! Photographing all your milestones is what makes my heart sing. I can‚Äôt wait to chat more about it over coffee or zoom!
My family mini is perfect for immediate families (parents and kids) because it's short enough that the kids stay engaged and don't get too tired. I have kids of my own so I'm very good and cracking jokes and making the experience fun. If you're looking for a longer session that can include some extended family members, please check out my Family Full Session.
