I'm  Dell

I have always loved to create since I was a child. From a young age, I have always had a desire to create, and this passion has followed me throughout my life.

As a child, my grandmother taught me how to sew and craft, sparking my interest in creating things with my own two hands. In my teenage years, this passion led me to furniture refinishing, carpentry, and photography. I bought my first manual film camera at 15 and began taking classes, which ignited my love for the art of photography.

When I went to college, I pursued a three-year diploma in graphic design, which allowed me to develop my skills and creativity in a structured environment. Of course when I became a wife and mother that I truly understood the value of capturing special moments through photography.

Like most mothers, I wanted to hold onto every detail of my twins' first years. I wanted to remember how tiny they were, how they smelled, and how those moments felt. These moments are fleeting and before you know it, they're gone. That's why I believe that photography is a powerful tool for preserving memories and creating heirlooms that can be cherished for generations to come.

For me, portraits are about freezing a single moment in time that it becomes a memory. It's about capturing your family's journey, your little one's spirit, and all your dreams. These moments are your family's legacy, and I am honored to be a part of capturing them.

What’s Her Specialty ?

As a photographer who specializes in newborn and children's portraiture. I have a deep love for finding beautiful light both indoors and outdoors, and I strive to create images that capture the beauty and innocence of childhood.

Since 2014, I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of local families to capture their precious memories, from the beginning of their family journey to special holidays and milestones. I take great care in creating a relaxed and comfortable environment for my clients, especially for newborn sessions, so that everyone feels at ease and can enjoy the experience.

In addition to my work with families, I am also proud to offer custom line of backdrops for photographers. As a photographer myself, I understand the importance of having the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot, and I have enjoyed creating unique and personalized sets for other professional photographers since 2019.

Does She Have Any Education Or Training ?

As a graphic designer, I am proud to offer my clients a unique blend of skills that combine the art of visual design, with the technical aspects of photography and stunning editing.. With a three-year diploma in graphic design, I have a solid foundation in the principles of design and color theory, which I use to create visually appealing compositions that tell a story and evoke emotions. As part of my eduction I have also completed numerous film and digital photography courses, as well as extensive image editing training, which allow me to capture and enhance images that truly capture the essence of my clients.

But that's not all! I have taken specialized classes and training in newborn portraiture, posing, safety, and soothing techniques from some of the best photographers worldwide. I am also CPR & First Aid certified, ensuring that my clients and their little ones are always safe and protected during our photo sessions.

And as a momma to my twins, I have lots of on-the-job training and firsthand experience with capturing those precious moments that make life so special.

But my learning journey doesn't stop there! Always wanting to improve my craft, I continue to take training courses every year, staying up-to-date with the latest techniques in the industry.
