Oak and Owl Photography

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.

Like most parents, my favourite thing to photograph are my children! You want amazing photos, but you also want a fun and relaxed experience for your family. You're pretty sure they will "cooperate" for a short time, but if they're young, you know it won't last long before they lose interest and want to do something else. You're in luck! I have kids too, and I know exactly how to appeal to their way of thinking! Your family session will be flexible and child-focused.

A family session is all about connection. Those genuine candid smiles and laughs. Not your typical stand beside each other stiff and smile, those pictures show what a person look like. My goal is to create images that make you feel! That when you look at them years down the road you smile because you are taken back to that moment when your children were just little, and you remember the sound of their laugh or the way they looked at you.

As a mum it was my daughter who inspired me to take up photography. Watching her grow and change so quickly, I felt like with every month, every milestone, her littleness, bit by bit, was slipping away. Photography gave me the ability to capture these precious, fleeting moments so that I could hang onto them. "Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

I would do a photoshoot over a messy kitchen meal, a toy-filled apartment or a spontaneous beach adventure any day of the week. Low light? Haven‘t cleaned in weeks? Cramped spaces? I'm here for it! Bing on the chaos of family life. In the work that I do, I strive to capture authenticity, that light that shines in each of us. My style is to capture life in an unscripted fashion. This is lifestyle photography that is true to life.

I love telling stories through images and I am constantly documenting my own family to ensure my kids have a visual history to look back on. I'm just like you, between grocery pick ups and school lunches, I feel like there is never enough time in the day to appreciate the everyday moments. Let me help you freeze time!

As a mom, I know what it's like to scroll through photos, realizing that you have endless photos of your kids with everyone but you. I would love to help you change that! It's amazing to chronicle the lives of these families and to be present for all their milestones, big and small. I know that the love, moments and memories I capture with my camera will be treasured, displayed, and looked at for years and generations to come. It is no small thing to be entrusted with preserving these all too fleeting, beautiful moments in time, and I don‘t take that trust lightly.

Hi, my name is Greg and I‘m passionate about my craft. In the end, isn‘t that what you want, someone who puts you at ease, listens, delivers as promised and goes that extra mile every step of the way? I want to impress you. Admittedly my desire for praise is also my weakness. I‘m simply not one of those artists who is content merely by the process of making art. I want others to see what I create and for my work to evoke such strong feelings that I can hear you laugh, see you smile and feel your happiness.

I want to get to know you and your family, how you interact and show your love for each other. I love to be silly with kids to help get a genuine smile from not just the toughest kids but also the most stoic grandparents. Let me help you capture the little things that make you and your family unique, the tired ear rub, the cute nose crinkle, the look of love he gives you when he thinks no one is watching.

The best part of family shoots are that they‘re so fun and you‘ll forget all about being in front of the camera! With kids, I make it all about playing and having a blast - which is the best time to capture those precious moments.

A mix of candid and posed that show connection! the Family Mini Session (20 min) is great for those with younger ones who may not be up for a longer session, or those only wanting a few images (15+ images) the Family Full Session (45-60 min) is ideal as it gives a longer time for children to warm up if they may be shy/uncertain, as well as provides for a greater diversity in background settings on location, and for creating beautiful albums (40+ images)

Silver Lark Photography's Nature Scavenger Hunt

Who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt!? I started making hand drawn scavenger hunt pages when my kids were small to keep their interest when we hiked. They love being able to check things off their list as we explore our favourite parks and trails (and usually earn a treat at the end). I'm so happy to be able to offer these sessions with an extra special takeaway-your own double-sided nature scavenger hunt that you can use again and again! For this photo session, we'll visit a park or trail that's special to you while looking for amazing things in nature to check off our lists. We'll capture lots of candid moments as you and your kids explore our beautiful forests and of course leave time for some family photos surrounded by nature.
