Jamie Dawn Olsen - Your Photographer
A Snap Shot of Me
For those of you looking to book me as your photographer, I think it is important that you get to know a little bit about me and understand why I do what I do. I am someone who loves LOVE. Honestly nothing makes me happier then seeing people in love, being in love and loving my family and friends. If I could be an emoticon I would be a red heart. This has inspired me to take photos.
Photography has been a hobby that turned into an obsession and passion for me. For the last 8 years, I have been taking pictures professionally. I think I bring a unique and special approach to photography with a fresh and original style to capture life's beauty and very special moments. My personable manner helps put all those around me at ease.
I love learning; As much as I complained about it when I was younger, I believe that it makes me grow as a person. I am always learning. After I decided what I wanted to do, I took the Photography Program at Sheridan College and it changed my life. The amount of knowledge that I obtained from that program still blows my mind. It brought me from a zero to almost hero. I am constantly educating myself to get that much better at what I do, and I am constantly searching for things to inspire new ideas.
"What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce." - Karl Lagerfeld
This is one of my favourite quotes and speaks volumes when it comes to why I enjoy my job so much. You can capture so much with a photograph—beauty, expression, but most importantly, you capture life's most important moments to ensure they remain memories. Capturing a particular moment in time in a person's life will leave them with a memory to share and a constant reminder of how they felt at that exact moment. I have an overwhelming feeling of excitement, happiness and passion when I take pictures. Photography makes me happy and making other people happy through it makes me a gazillion times happier.
I want to be there for every moment, to give you something so amazing to look back on. I want to help create something for you to show your kids, grandkids, and great great grandchildren. I want to have fun with all of my clients and collaborate so that they are getting exactly what they want.
Every day I pinch myself thinking that I can't believe I do this for a living. Thank you for helping me live my dream.
