about me

I began taking photos in high school when I sold my saxophone and bought an SLR.
Good move – I was a terrible sax player.

After many travels I ended up in Calgary where I got a BFA in Photography and haven’t looked back. I won some awards, exhibited some fine art and now call Squamish & Vancouver my home where I practice photography full time. When I’m not behind my camera I’m eating ginger, planning my next trip, breathing the fresh mountain air and spending time with my love.

I am proud to be a member of the Professional Photographers Of Canada, the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada, and Nikon Pro Services as well as a founding member of the Downtown Eastside Women’s Portraits, an event offering portraits to low income and homeless women in the city.

If you love my photography give me a shout, it would be great to meet you!

Jarusha.

Thankful

This may sound cheesy but I am thankful everyday for my partner Colin, for his love and support and awesome sense of humour.

I’m also incredibly grateful that my job allows me to document some of the most important events in people’s lives. To create visual legacies and celebrate alongside them.

I’m thankful that my clients trust me completely to not only document their day but create art as well.

I am perpetually wearing rose-coloured glasses and I don’t mind at all  🙂
