Hi! I am Deanna, and I am the person behind 1000 Words Photography. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of my job, is warmth. My studio is always warm for the sweet babies who visit me, and full of beautiful blankets, furs and other things to snuggle them up in. I would also like to think that I provide some "warmth" to all of my clients, no matter what the session is! I am a hugger, I love to hug my clients and their kids, and really connect with the people I am taking photos of. I often become friends with my clients, because I end up connecting with so many amazing people through my awesome studio on Main Street in Lacombe! You can often find me wearing some sort of t shirt or tank top that talks about snuggling your baby or hoarding all of the props, they are a HUGE staple in my wardrobe while I am in the studio or travelling.
I am married to the most supportive man ever who is always willing to build me a new prop, or take the kids on an adventure so that I can be in the studio on evenings or weekends. I have four of the coolest kids you've ever met! I have seven year old twin girls who take after me and love shopping, gymnastics and motorcycles, and two step sons who are six and eight, and who are super creative and are the typical boys that always have a stick in their hand! We love keeping our kids busy and always seem to have something planned, whether its a weekend of camping, a trip to the pool, or even just the farmer's market.
I love to be in my studio with clients. It is most definitely my happy place! I love having meetings with expecting mommas to chat about their upcoming sessions and arrival of their babies, and the visits we get to have while baby is feeding during a newborn session. The connections I make are so incredibly special to me and I can truly say I have met some of my best friends through my job. I truly know and appreciate how special this is, and I am so thankful that I get to love what I do SO MUCH!
