Who is this wild, outgoing, independent, Starbucks-obsessed, photographer after all???
So let's start at the beginning...
My name is Quinn and I am a couples photographer based in Waterloo Region and servicing Southern Ontario.
Now that all that formal stuff is out of the way, let's get down to some of the more juicy stuff.
My name is Quinn, I am 24 years old, and I was born and raised in Cambridge, ON. I love Cambridge for 2 main reasons among many others. 1) It is the perfect mix between big city and small town. 2) It is a heritage city that has so much character to discover.
If you have followed along with my social media at all, then you will know that I'm like every other basic girl that is
obsessed with Starbucks, but I'm okay with that. Before you judge me, hear me out. I don't drink coffee. Not a fan of the taste or smell. So in my opinion, Starbucks has the best non-coffee options compared to any of the other large chains. Once you have the full fat, think and creamy hot chocolate from Starbucks, all of the sudden it becomes even harder to even think about wanting to drink the runny, half water hot chocolate from Tim Hortons. So you can usually find a Starbucks cup in my hand at multiple times a week; whether that be a hot chocolate, refresher or creme-based frappe.
Growing up I was that kid that did everything and was always busy. The amount of after school activities that I did was through the roof at times. I will admit and slightly brag about being that girl in girl guides who went badge crazy. when I was in Brownies, I successfully completed every single badge in the handbook. And yes, I did have every single one of those sewed onto my sash. My sash had a badge fringe off the side of it by time I was done. I totally still get mocked for that by some of my friends from guides.
In the end, I ended up handing in my tent pegs and guide badges for curling shoes and a broom. When I was 8 years old, I had a friend that brought me to a "Bring a Friend" day at the local curling club. Even now if you ask my mom, she will tell you that curling is all I talked about all summer that year to the point where my parents could help but enrol me in the local junior program. From there, I quickly rocked the club curling scene (pun intended) and transitioned into the competitive tour. 15 years later, I have never looked back once. Some highlights from my curling career so far is completing a 5 year college varsity career where our women's team qualified for Canadians 3 times within those 5 years, and being selected twice to be part of team Canada at a world training Junior event in Canada. Curling is such a small community so the people you meet and the experiences you have last a life time. Curling is literally one of the only things that could ever cause me to give up photography. When you see me on TV playing in the Olympics, you can say you knew me when.
One thing that people always ask me is "What do you do in your free time?" and my answer every time to that is jokingly "What free time?". Some people aren't lucky enough to find even one thing that they are extremely excited to get out of bed in the morning for and I have been fortunate enough to have two things.
While writing this post, I decided to ask my friends and family what are some words that they would use to describe me and this is the list that they came up with: dedicated, focused, creative, reliable, smart, easygoing, openminded, wild, and a great team player.
One of my favourite things in life is being able to connect with others and share experiences together. No matter if you are specifically looking for photos or are just like me and love connecting with other, let's set up a time and chat. I'm always here.
