Capturing your family is an important part of making memories. While there has been a big boom in amateur photography over the past several years, getting professional family portraits done is still an important part of documenting that wonderful family that you have! While there are many wonderful photographers in Moncton we want to highlight for you our favorite local photographer, Steph MacKenzie at Wildflower Photography!
Although Steph has been heavily involved with photography since 2007, it was only 2 shorts months ago that she decided to follow her dream by leaving her job at an assistant manager and launching her photography business full time. That’s courage.
That’s not the only big change that’s been happening in this woman’s life, she’s also a recent newlywed to her husband Tyler. Steph tears up when she describes her husband. It has really been through his love, support, and encouragement that she’s been able to do all that she’s done in the past few months.
Although Steph loves shooting anything and anyone, she has a real passion for capturing families. The love for families shows through in her images which are full of natural emotion, fun, and life that you just don’t get in a Sears-portrait-studio setting.
You may be wondering.. How do we know Steph? We built her house! Her favorite part of her Martell Semi-Detached home is the kitchen and the walkin pantry. We were so happy to work on Steph’s home and are glad that she loves it as much as we do!
One of Steph’s passions is the mission of ”recapturing beauty”. It’s this passion that drives her “Wildflower Project” which seeks to redefine what beauty is. The format of the project is simple, for every paid session that Steph does she gives one away to a woman (or women) in the community. These free sessions though are not your typical photoshoot. These photoshoots have no makeup or hairstyling … no ‘extras’. Dressed in a simple black T-shirt these community women are challenged to be representatives of true beauty. Beauty, Steph explains, isn’t in the external, it’s the internal. She really wants these women to be an example that beauty is in everyone and to encourage women everywhere to see themselves as beautiful.
