The Hatch Family

Had a FABULOUS family portrait session on Saturday with the Hatch family. They are a great group of people and were a blast to hang out with. You can just see how much this family loves each other, from the loving glances of Mom and Dad to the hugs and cuddles between siblings. It was adorable.

I'm still looking for people to shoot for my portfolio, so if you're interested in a free session, just give me a shout!!

On to some photos...













I'm heading on vacation for a week to visit family and attend a football game, so i'll be back next week with photos from that. I'll still be available through email though, if you want to book a session.

Cheers!

Interested in a session?

At the moment I am looking to do portrait sessions for children, families, couples, babies and pets. I am looking to expand my portfolio and get images to use for marketing. The cost of the sessions will be free, and I will give you a CD with 20-30 fully edited images from the session. This is for a limited time only, so if you're interested give me a call at (250) 218-6766 or email me at gillottaway@hotmail.com.

Welcome to my blog!

Hey everyone, and welcome to my blog! I'll tell you a bit about myself, to start off, and then we'll get to some photos! My name is Gillian, and i'm a 26 year old graphic designer from Comox, on beautiful Vancouver Island. I live with my boyfriend of 3 years, Brandon, and our two fur-babies, Hope (my siamese cat) and Jack (our superstar chihuahua). I'm just starting out in the wide world of photography, though i've had it as a hobby for a few years now. Earlier this year I started working as a second shooter at weddings with the very talented Stefanie Pletscher of SP Photo (if you need someone to do your wedding or studio work, DEFINITELY check her out!) and loved it. As much as I loved shooting the weddings, my heart has always been in portraits and capturing people, so that's where I'm starting out! Aside from photography, my other main hobbies are computers (I'm a World of Warcraft nut!) and scrapbooking (which happens to tie in nicely with the photography!)

Now, onto some photos! I recently did a mini-session with a fabulous little guy, Josh. He was a PRO in front of the camera and was a blast to work with. Here are some of the best shots from that day:


















Hope you enjoyed the photos! I have a few more shoots this weekend, so check back soon for updates.
