Hey, I’m Darla…your friendly neighbourhood photographer! My full service studio specializes in Maternity, Newborn & Family portraits. I am an outgoing extrovert with a sarcastic sense of humour and I LOVE to laugh with people. My studio name L²: Love & Light Photography came into existence because it is my philosophy in life. I believe in loving all people and doing my best to bring light into their life. Fun fact: I actually have a tattoo on my body that says “Love & Light.”
I have an addiction to studio props & lighting…but I equally have an addiction for education. As long as I can remember, I have always had a thirst for knowledge and to date, I have completed over 10 years of university between my Registered Nursing degree, Nursing Specialties and Photography education & mentorships. I will forever be a life long learner to hone, and perfecting my craft. Also, am a total perfectionist, to a fault really, and nothing but 100% is ever enough. I am also super competitive and thoroughly enjoy entering my art in competitions.
Being in or around the water comes naturally to me, as I used to be a competitive swimmer and lifeguard for over a decade. I absolutely love wine in all it’s forms: red, white or rose. Recently, I have developed a palate for craft beers and enjoy a hoppy IPA. I love wearing yoga pants & hoodies in the winter, and nothing but long flowy sundresses in the summer. Also, I love to cook for lots of people, and my favourite meal to create is a big turkey dinner with all the fixings. I love getting to know my clients and creating beautiful art for their homes….there is honestly nothing better.
So now you know a little about me and my quirkiness. I hope you are having a great start to your August!
-Much Love & Light,
