I’m Chrissy Jardine. Once upon a time I was a child, just like you were. I rollerskated, played with Tonka trucks (I may have been a wee bit of a tomboy!), and I danced.
I love taking photographs. Taking a moment of time and capturing it forever. I think it’s the special memories each snap shot evokes that keeps me moving. I love getting creative and working with my subjects to have fun. I love what I do.
In my former life, I graduated from college as a Certified Funeral Director. I dabbled and have a cosmetology degree too. I also hold a Business Information Technology certificate. For over ten years I managed hotels and have been the director of sales for a Dartmouth area hotel. I held the position of Director of Operations and Marketing for Dance Zone Performing Arts Centre where I was able to develop my craft even further, capturing moments of the dancers and present I’m the Sales Manager for Rodd Hotels & Resorts which gives me the opportunity to take photos of resorts and services in the corporate world. And in between all this, I’ve managed to hone my skills by taking a photography course from the Nova Scotia Community College. So from a little girl who played with trucks in the mud to photographer – quite a ride!
I’m often asked where my passion for photography began. Five years ago my sister returned from California with my first Canon camera. I loved the learning curve on my new camera! That ignited my passion. I’m on my third Canon now and have embraced the technology of digital imaging. I heart my work.
My best photos are not planned. They just happen; unfold. I want my photos to tell your story. I want to take you to that place where they truly reflect who you are.
I am truly looking forward to capturing your moments. Connect today and let’s get started.
